MadAzza: WillofJ2: Spad31: FTFA: "The cause of death had not been determined..."

How about gravity, falling and a sudden stop on the stage?

I read that, and was coming to comment, maybe it was sabotage?  Otherwise physics took another live

She could have had a heart attack or other cardiac event, an aneurism, or a sudden drop in blood sugar that caused her to pass out or lose her grip. Any of a number of medical events (or a mechanical problem with the equipment) could have caused her to fall.

Even if hitting the stage did her in, they have to determine what exactly killed her. Did she break a rib, which impaled a lung or sliced an artery, causing her to hemorrhage internally? Did her skull get crushed? Did she land on a pile of razor blades?

"She fell" isn't an official cause of death.


How about ''she landed'' as the official cause of death?

Coelacanth: That used to be the EFX Theater until MGM maimed too many people.
I was a Day One employee there, and they must've injured an hundred dancers rehearsing for the EFX show.  The star of the show, Michael Crawford was injured going down a zip line and he was forced to retire from show business for awhile on account of his injuries.


Better than the tongue injurith I thuffered after going down on a choruth line.

Hector Remarkable: Gravity is not just a good idea - It's the Law.


OH yeah, what's going to happen if I break that law?  Are the universe police going to come and tase me?

Maybe its just me, but it seems pretty obvious that she was killed by a grizzly bear.

bighairyguy: She should track down Owen Hart and swap stories.


I dunno what she'd get out of it, really. He was never quite the showstopper she was.
