If she didnt know water would hurt her like that and the radio station did, I see blame. Alot of people dont know that water could kill a person.

"Blame the Victim" Movement? Hardly. How about the "Take Responsibility for Your Own Actions" Movement.

The idea of water intoxication became pretty prevalent during the 80's-90's days of Raves when kids were dropping ecstasy and either dying from over heating or from drinking TOO MUCH water.

What I wish is for people to QUIT expecting the government to protect them from their OWN STUPIDITY!

Apparently people will do anything for money.

I think she qualifies for one of the Darwin Awards.

sen......certainly that could be an argument that you could make at a trial but i am not sure that is one in which a jury would buy...

again, the original topic was girl dies, who is at fault. I think the most reasonable response is probably both with the radio station being more at fault (in my opinion much more but that can be argued certainly). all the other arguments are BEYOND THE SCOPE of the thread, haha.... ;-)

"A poll taken by the Sacramento Bee stated that water intoxication is NOT a well known fact, and it is likely that 80% of the population, prior to this event, had no idea." --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So, based on these two statements, it should be simply common sense that radio station, like the SURVEY says, would not have known about the dangers. Since the MAJORITY of the public did not know then it is REASONABLE that the Radio Station did not know and therefore their liability is either reduced or dismissed.

ah, i promised myself i would never get into debates in political threads!!!! BUT... knew or should have known is not just some language that is thrown into a lawsuit but rather it is an element in determining what is negligence and has devloped over years of jurisprudence. It is certainly not any possibility but what a reasonable person/company should have known. If the standard was simply whether a company/corporation actually KNEW there was a risk of harm suddenly they would not be aware of ANY risk of harm. Again, it goes back to what is reasonable. The are bad results on both sides of the fence and the system is NOT perfect but it's the best in the world from a both a civil/criminal perspective in my humble opinion.

now someone tell me how HOT my russian fiance is dammit!!!!! hahahaha
