All Wii hear is radio wee wee

DJs fired after fatal water-drinking contest
California woman competing for a Nintendo Wii died of water intoxication
The Associated Press
Updated: 2:58 p.m. CT Jan 17, 2007


SACRAMENTO, Calif. - A radio station fired 10 employees, including its three morning disc jockeys, after a woman died following an on-air water-drinking contest last week.
The hosts of KDND-FM's "Morning Rave" were fired Tuesday, a day after the station said it was suspending the show and investigating the death of Jennifer Lea Strange.
Strange, 28, was one of about 18 contestants who tried to win a Nintendo Wii gaming console by seeing how much water they could drink without going to the bathroom. The show's DJs called the contest "Hold your Wee for a Wii."
During the contest, participants were given two minutes to drink an 8-ounce bottle of water and then given another bottle to drink after a 10-minute break.
Strange may have drunk nearly two gallons, witnesses said. She appeared ill, one contestant said.
After the contest, Strange called in sick to work. She was found dead at her home about five hours later.
The Sacramento County coroner said preliminary autopsy findings indicated she died of water intoxication.

Drinking large quantities of water rapidly can throw off the body's balance of electrolytes, causing brain swelling and leading to seizures, coma or even death.
Strange had showed fellow contestants photographs of her two sons and daughter, for whom she was hoping to win the Nintendo Wii. The game console sells for about $250.

Jennifer Marlowe or Bailey Quarters? I was riveted...but then again, I thought Kotter's wife (Marcia Strassman) was hot back then, too.

The Sacramento Bee newspaper released audio clips from the morning show on their website [12]
Here are some highlights of the clips, transcripted:
---
[Before the contest begins, the DJs are discussing the contest]
Female DJ 1: "Can't you get water poisoning, and like, die?"
Male DJ 1: "Your body is 98% water. (laughing) Why can't you take in as much water as you want? (laughing)"
Female DJ 1: "I don't know"
...[unintelligible comments about "some poor kid", an apparent reference to the recent water poisoning hazing death of Matthew Carrington]
Female DJ 1: "Maybe we should have researched this" (laughter)
Male DJ 1: "If it gets dangerous for somebody, their body will automatically throw it up."
---
[A caller named Eva calls in... ]
Male DJ 1: "Eva? What do you want to say?"
Eva: "I want to say that those people who are drinking all that water can get sick and possibly die from water intoxication"
Male DJ 1: "We're aware of that"
Male DJ 2: "They signed releases so we're not responsible. It's OK" (laughter)
Male DJ 1: "And if they get to the point where they have to throw up, then they're gonna throw up and they're outta the contest before they die. So that's good right?"
Eva: "Awwww, that's mean. I suppose so."
. . .
Female DJ 1: "Thanks for looking out though"
. . .
Male DJ 1: "Hey Carter, is anybody dying in there?"
Carter: "We got a guy who is just about to die" (laughter)
