Utterly senseless

I was shocked when I first heard about this contest because I'd already heard about other deaths from water intoxication. I knew the brain could swell up and cause death. So I was surprised that anyone would hold such a contest and be unaware of the danger. Now they've discovered that the radio dj's were warned by a caller and didn't take the warning seriously--they joked about it!

CNN story

And all for a Nintendo Wii. I can't imagine how her children will feel as they grow up knowing she died just to get them a video game system in a senseless contest.

Can we say lawsuit? Manslaughter charges?
