Nancy Kerrigan Family Tragedy – It all transpired in the very home where the Olympic silver medalist was raised. Nancy Kerrigan's father, 70-year-old Daniel Kerrigan was found unresponsive and taken to a Boston area hospital, where he was pronounced dead on Sunday morning. Nancy's brother Mark has been charged with assault and battery in connection with the incident. According to various news sources, he thought his father was "faking it" when he collapsed during a fight over the telephone. Nancy's mother Brenda tells the Boston Herald, "My husband had a massive heart attack. This is a very difficult time for me." According to the Herald, the police report indicates Mark "put his hands around his father's neck," and had to be subdued with pepper spray when authorities responded on the scene. The younger Kerrigan appeared intoxicated, according to the report. Daniel Kerrigan's death comes two weeks after the sixteenth anniversary of Tonya Harding's infamous attack on Nancy at the 1994 U.S. Figure Skating Championships.
Salvador Cabanas – One of Paraguay's most famous soccer players, Salvador Cabanas is in serious condition after being shot in the head while visiting a Mexico City bar with his family early Monday morning. According to an ESPN report, the bullet "was shot from a firearm with a frontal entry point and without exit." Cabanas "arrived conscious and responded well to the questions they asked him as he was going into the hospital," Michael Bauer, president of Club America, told Televisa. Cabanas scored 18 goals in 24 matches for Club America this season, and he was expected to play an important role in Paraguay's chances at the World Cup this summer.
