Radio station cancels show, fires 10 over deadly Wii contest

Blake Snow

An update on the story of the mother-of-three that died while participating in a water guzzling Wii contest last week. The radio station responsible for the contest, KDND out of Sacramento, fired three morning DJs and seven others after canceling the Morning Rave show yesterday.

Jennifer Strange, 28, died after drinking nearly two gallons of water in the Hold your wee for a Wii contest. Water intoxication is said to cause rapid swelling of the brain and seizures resulting in either coma or death. No word yet if the Strange family will seek legal damages, but at least the nation has one less shameless morning show polluting the airwaves now.
