Court awards $16.5m in 'Hold Your Wee for a Wii' radio stunt death

It's been a while since we've heard anything about the tragic case of Jennifer Strange, the mother who died from water intoxication during an attempt to win a Wii in KDND-FM's "Hold your Wee for a Wii" radio contest. Yesterday, a California jury finally ruled on the wrongful death suit filed by the victim's family back in 2007. Entercom Sacramento LLC, subsidiary of Philadelphia-based Entercom Communications Corp., must pay Strange's family $16.5 million after being found liable for the actions of its employees at KDND-FM.

Money certainly can't replace a loved one -- most especially not a mother. We offer our condolences to the family of Jennifer Strange and ask that you remain respectful in your comments below. Hopefully, the money will go a long way in benefiting the three children and other family members she left behind.
