The suit will be filed on behalf of Jennifer Strange’s family. The 28-year-old woman was taking part in KDND’s contest to see how much water contestants could drink without going to the restroom. She apparently died of water intoxication. Authorities with the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department and District Attorney’s office are still investigating whether criminal charges should be filed.
