    I'm listening to BBC Worldservice radio online and a while ago I cam back into the room as they were talking about a guy who got horribly ill when he was on vacation. His 2 kids were vomiting or something and he was too. He then was out cold for a couple days and when he woke up the kids were dead. I think they were covering a trial or inquest or about the deaths.

    WTF is this?? I'm in the U.S. and I never heard of this before. I've kept listening for the past 2 hours and they haven't repeated the story and I can't find it on the BBC website. Since I walked in at the end of the piece I don't know where the incident happened or their names or anything.

    So if anyone can point me to a link about this story I'd greatly appreciate it. It's driving me crazy.

    Thanks

    Here you go, it's re. a trial, the incident was from back in 2006.

    Whew. Thank you for that! I can't believe the tour company employees are on trial for murder. Tough crowd! I mean, if that's how the law works in Greece I'd think they would charge the maintenance man with negligent homicide since he's the one that didn't fix the heater. The employees just booked him into that shithole as far as I could tell

    I could be wrong but I think the family spoke to the tour reps about moving rooms due to illness / dodgy smells and they didn't do anything.
