The pitcher and two other unidentified people were pronounced dead early Sunday after a Coast Guard patrol found a 33-foot boat overturned on a jetty about 3:30 a.m. local Miami time, according to Coast Guard Chief Nyxolyno Cangemi.

The accident is currently being investigated by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

The Marlins, who were set to play the Atlanta Braves today, have canceled their game in light of the tragedy surrounding Fernández (pictured above, left, laughing with an umpire during a game last week).

The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):

Terminally Ill Cancer Blogger Tragically Dies ONE DAY Before Her Dream Wedding

no title

This poor woman!!

Anna Swabey knew there was little hope for her to live a full life after she'd been battling a terminal illness for many years. Unfortunately, her story gets even sadder now that the cancer-suffering 25-year-old passed away just ONE DAY shy of her dream wedding.

Swabey — who had been battling a terminal brain tumor and was the writer of an influential cancer blog called Inside My Head — died on Friday, not even 24 hours before 160 of her closest confidants were supposed to see her wed Andy Bell, her boyfriend of ten months.

Bell — who knew of Swabey's condition but wanted to marry the love of his life anyways — met Anna exactly a month after she had been diagnosed with the terminal brain tumor last January.

At one point a few months ago in an essay for Marie Claire, Anna revealed that the tumor made things very, very difficult for her with Andy, writing:

"I knew halfway through my third date with Andy that I was going to break his heart. Not because I was going to cheat on him or dump him, but because I knew I was going to die."

We have no words.

But it gets worse…

House Sitter Allegedly Overdoses In Former SNL Star Norm Macdonald's Home

Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.Sad SadSaturday Night LiveHealthScary!Viral: News

no title

A 23-year-old man was found dead in comedian Norm Macdonald's condominium from what police suspect to be an overdose.

According to multiple reports, Michael Huettner was friends from high school with the Saturday Night Live star's son, and was house-sitting this week as Norm traveled the world.

Unfortunately, Michael's body was reportedly found by his own parents after they hadn't heard from him in some time and went to check on him when his girlfriend told them he had been watching the KFC spokesperson's home and cat.

When Huettner's parents arrived, the door to the home was open, and they walked in to find Michael dead on a bed, surrounded by multiple pills and bottles — including some oxycodone.

The family allegedly told investigators that their son had previous issues with oxy, and thus, police believe the man died from an overdose at the scene.

In the meantime, Macdonald is cooperating fully with authorities, as prescription pills of his own — which were legally prescribed by a doctor — were also found at the scene.

Rest in peace, Michael.

This is so touching, done in a way only a comedian could do!

Pete Davidson's father died on September 11, 2001 in the terror attacks in New York City, when the comedian was just a seven-year-old boy, and today, on the fifteenth anniversary of the attacks, Pete shared a wonderful tribute.

Davidson's dad had been a firefighter who was killed in the line of duty during the attacks, and never got to see his son become the youngest member of the current cast of Saturday Night Live — and thus far the only member born in the 1990s.

So Pete did today what only a funnyman could do: he roasted his dad a little bit on Instagram!

Ch-ch-check out Pete's first IG post — part serious, part humorous, part beer-for-an-infant (below):
