If you recall, a young lady recently died possibly because of water intoxication resulting from a "Hold Your Wee for a Nintendo Wii" contest put on by a radio station that had people drink large quantities of water and not go to the bathroom. The 10 people responsible for the contest were canned and the show, Morning Rave on KDND-FM, has been suspended. Should this situation be taken any further? Legal action? Manslaughter would likely be the worst offense that could be given out in this situation.

Update: And the plot thickens. Commenter Auger282 found this live recording of the actual show where the DJs joked about water intoxication, and emphasized the fact that release forms were needed to be signed. Just go take a listen for yourself and prepare to be shocked.
