During the summer, this crap happens an average of 14 times a day in the US.
Might make the local papers, just like a house fire, but no national media attention.
I'm looking at a report right now of an Amtrak/Trespasser contest that happened this morning in MD.
Guess which won....

Perfect!

He lost his train of thought, then he lost all esteem.
He had a musical career, he was a conductor.

(CNN) -- A competitor has died and another is in hospital following a tragic end to the World Sauna Championships in southern Finland.
Russian Vladimir Ladyzhenskiy died Saturday after taking part in the final of a competition in which contestants are required to withstand rising temperatures for as long as possible.
Finnish finalist Timo Kaukonen was also taken to hospital for treatment, organizer Ossi Arvela said in a statement posted on the event's website.
Images of the contest showed Ladyzhenskiy and Kaukonen sitting side by side in the sauna. Both contestants can then be seen lying on the ground, apparently doused in water. Ladyzhenskiy appears to be suffering from severe skin burns.
"The event was interrupted immediately after the accident. Competition organization grieves these sad events," Avela said.
Finnish police and organizers are investigating the incident, Arvela said. But he said first aid personnel had been in place and all competitors taking part in the contest had provided doctor's certificates. "All the rules were followed," he said.
The World Sauna Championships take place annually in the town of Heinola.

This makes the train slapper look like Einstein! Jesus, I can't believe this, literally cooking yourself alive, and WILLINGLY

There are plenty of stupid ways to die...

A few years back, a local radio station had a water drinking contest. A local mother participated and ended up killing herself due to excessive water ingestion.

Yep, she drank too much water and it killed her!

Despite her signing a waiver, her next of kin sued the radio station and won lots of cash.

They won't be having that kind of contest any more...

Stick a fork in them they're done.

If you can't take the heat get out of the sauna.
