Just awful…

According to Perth Now, Meegan Hefford — a 25-year-old bodybuilder from Mandurah, Australia — was found unconscious in her apartment on June 19 where doctors later diagnosed her with urea cycle disorder, which blocks the body from breaking down protein.

On June 22, the mother-of-two was declared brain dead due to the buildup of ammonia in her blood and fluid in her brain. "Intake of bodybuilding supplements" was listed as one of her causes of death.

Hefford was training for a competition in September and was drinking protein shakes and eating protein-rich foods.

Prior to her hospitalization, the paramedicine student told her mom Michelle White she was feeling "weird," to which Michelle responded:

"I said to her, 'I think you're doing too much at the gym, calm down, slow it down."'

Ultimately, her family wants to regulate the sell of supplements, to prevent another family from experiencing their tragedy.

"I know there are people other than Meegan who have ended up in hospital because they've overloaded on supplements. The sale of these products needs to be more regulated."

Meegan leaves behind a 7-year-old daughter and a 5-year-old son.

The disorder affects one in 8000 people.

The fallout continues…

As we reported, James Alex Fields Jr. was arrested and charged with second-degree murder and malicious wounding after he allegedly plowed his car into protesters injuring 19, and killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer at a demonstration in Virginia on Saturday.

On Monday, Tadrint and Micah Washington – who were in the car that Fields rammed into — are suing him, rally organizers (including David Duke, Richard Spencer, and Jason Kessler), and other white nationalist organizations for assault and battery, and civil conspiracy and negligence.

They are seeking $3 million in damages.

Tadrint and Micah — who suffered injuries as a result of the crash — say they were not tied to any protest group at the time of the event, and were simply trying to head home.

We wouldn't be surprised if there are more lawsuits against the alt-right in the future.

This is horrible!

A stuntwoman was killed after a motorcycle accident while filming a scene for Deadpool 2 in Vancouver on Monday.

According to witnesses, the performer was filming a scene when she lost control of the bike, jumped the curb, and crashed through the window of Shaw Tower. Witnesses say it doesn't look like she ever applied the brakes.
