So in Sacramento California the radio station KDND 107.9 decided to hold a water drinking contest. Contestants that got shitty gifts for Christmas went on the show to see who could drink the most water without throwing up or peeing. Jennifer Strange, 28, mother of three, was one of those contestants. Dj's made all contestants sign a waiver but it is unclear if the waiver stated they could possibly die from this event. Listeners kept calling the station warning the Dj's of a condition called water intoxification and warned that the contestants could die. They didn't listen and went on with the contest. Jennifer was one of two left standing and decided to quit b/c of nausia and severe headache. She walked into the radio's studio after the contest was over and all the dj's commented how she looked pregnant, just because of how much water was in her body. And they laughed She was found dead in her home later that evening. Cause of death, water intoxification.
This story really saddens me. I hope that the Dj's and the radio station heads are held responsible for this woman's death. She has 3 small children at home with no mother now. Did they do their research before this stupid stunt. All personnel that were apart of the show were fired, but I don't think it should stop there. I am really curious to see how this one will pan out.
