2000s / Radio Contest Death
On January 12, 2007, Jennifer Strange, a 28-year-old mother of three from Rancho Cordova, California pictured in the photo below, was found dead in her home by her mother. It was only a few hours after she had tried to win a Nintendo Wii game console on a radio contest. KDND 107.9 FM's Hold Your Wee for a Wii contest involved drinking large quantities of water without urinating. The cause of Strange's death was determined to be a rare condition known as water intoxication--basically when too much water is consumed by a human being. Civil charges against the radio station were filed by Jennifer's family. They were eventually awarded $16.5 million in the ensuing wrongful death lawsuit. Everyone connected with the contest was fired from KDND. Oh, yeah...Strange did not win the contest.
