Twilight Fan Dies at Comic-Con

On a multiday campout anticipating Twilight's final appearance at San Diego Comic-Con, 53-year-old Gisela Gagliardi of Kingston, New York, was struck by a car and later pronounced dead at a local hospital. Gagliardi was hurrying across a red-lighted crosswalk, "racing to return to her group on a line organizers were moving," the Daily News writes, adding the whole thing occurred "in front of a horrified crowd of fellow Twi-hards." Lionsgate expressed sorrow, saying Gagliardi will be "respectfully remembered" at Comic-Con.
