Aaaw, That's sad. :(

Your post reminded me of this one I found :

And now, in keeping with Channel 40's policy of always bringing you the latest in blood and guts, in living color, you're about to see another first - an attempted suicide.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure she did.

Omg, how do you react to that, I mean not just as a person watching, but the people in the room with her. Could you imagine. Totally blank other then that. It must be so awfully shocking. :X
