My thoughts are also with the family. sad.gif

And with the families of the following people:

- Glen Corner, knifed to death on his birthday by an evil gang
- Princess Zara's friend Sherelle Duke, killed last week when her horse fell on her
- An un-named British squaddie killed by the Taliban this week
- The forty-nine people killed in a plane crash in Kentucky
- Six-year-old Liam Hogan, buried this week, thrown from a balcony by his dad

And that's just the ones who made the headlines. I'd have to go through every local paper from every region to come closer to a proper list of this week's tragic deaths.

But hey, who wants perspective?

My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends at this time. I was in the hotel on Saturday and saw a few hen parties in there having such fun. I pray the bride is able to enjoy her wedding day and remember her friend at this terrible time.

Prayers also to the families and friends to those who Gem mentioned in her post.

Says in the paper today friends said that during the night of drinking she kept saying she thought her drink had been spiked.

Usually its a "friend" who spikes the drinks thinking it will be funny, if it was a "friend" then I hope they own up and are banged up for murder.

Ahh I remember the days when the AT hotel was just for families and couples, no large groups of single sex people to avoid any trouble.

It could have happened in any hotel, it's not really Alton's problem. In fact, people die in hotels all the time - it's just that because Alton is "high profile" that deaths gets reported all the time. As long as they're not to blame for the lady's death or could have done more to save her life then it shouldn't be seen as anything too out of the normal.

Nonetheless, it is tragic, especially as she was there to celebrate and it should have been a happy occassion. My sympathies go out to those involved.

Hotel death tests 'inconclusive'

Further tests are to be carried out on the body of a woman who was found dead in a hotel room at a theme park.

Taken from the ATA homepage:


Natual Causes Ruling for ATH Death
Saturday, 9th December 2006

A woman who died at the Alton Towers Hotel while on a friend's hen night, died of natural causes, an inquest has heard.

29-year-old Angela Otter, from Queensbury in Bradford, was found dead in her hotel room bed at around 10 o'clock in the morning on August 28th.

Angela had visited her doctor several times complaining of migraines, the hearing in North Staffordshire was told. They had increased in frequency and severity in the months leading up to her death.

Her friend, Nicola Hammond, said Angela had complained of feeling unwell in the hotel after the group had spent a day at the theme park.

She said: "When I got in the shower she was apparently sick. She said she felt better, we had a glass of champagne and went down for dinner.

"She seemed absolutely fine and was tucking into a steak."


After the meal, the group went on a night out to celebrate their friend's wedding. Miss Hammond added: "We had a lot to drink, we had shots and Angela was drinking pints of cider."

Lisa Robertson, who slept in the bed next to Angela, said she had taken three baths to try to calm down, after complaining of her heart racing.

She said: "She told me 'I'm fine but my heart is racing, I feel like I could run a marathon.' At one point she was jumping up and down on the bed. I could feel her in front of me and was tickling her back but she kept fidgeting.

"I heard her during the night making a noise. I thought she had coughed so I touched her and she was cold. I got up and put a blanket over her."


Dr Daniel Van Pittius, who carried out a post-mortem examination, said there was nothing any of her friends could have done to help her. He told the inquest that she had suffered clots from deep vein thrombosis and died from a pulmonary thromboembolism - when a blood clot travels to the lungs.

North Staffordshire Coroner Ian Smith recorded a verdict of natural causes.

Angela's sister Kristina Eden, 31, said: "She has left a gaping hole in all our lives.

"She was loved a great deal. Our mum and dad always referred to her as Angel and she was."

And that's just the ones who moncler coats for men and women made the headlines. I'd have to go through every local paper from every moncler jackets sale region to come closer to a proper list of this week's tragic deaths.
