Well, obviously my anger comes from the fact that SHE DIED. Duh. She didn't have to.
Heck, they tell average citizens to stay out of the heat when it gets this bad, so what would you expect a doctor to tell a pregnant woman? I'm sure you think they'd tell her to head to the desert and march across it with her winter coat on.
This is common sense. And if my wife was pregnant, I wouldn't be taking her to a MLB game in 90 plus degree heat with a heat index over 100. But that's just me..........maybe I'm a total idiot and we should all wait to take our pregnant wives when the heat index gets over 100.
