    Former WHOTV, ABC5 reporter dies at age 38

    Wow...I found this weird (and sad especially given she had an 8 year old daughter):

    I saw that on the news and didn't catch how young she was. Just tragic.

    Something they don't mention is she was also eight months pregnant. What a deal just goes to show we never know when our number will be called. So live life to the fullest my fellow Cyclones. GOD BLESS everybody in CYCLONE NATION!

    I thought I read she was eight months pregnant too. Sad.

    Are you sure? How is that not part of the story because you're talking about two lives (assuming the 8 month year old baby didn't make it either) not just Slivernails.

    I'm skeptical at this point.

    I read it yesterday but can't find it now. I'm skeptical now too.

    She was pregnant. It was part of the story on one of the local station's website yesterday but they must have removed it for some reason. If you Google her name, there is a facebook memorial page that says that she was 8 months pregnant. As of last night, it did not mention the status of the baby.

    That part of the story could have been removed for medical privacy reasons.

    That is rough. I wonder if there were pregnancy complications? Life is fragile. Gonna give my wife and little one an extra squeeze tonight.

    She was an outstanding lady who was very giving with her time and talents. It was a tragedy that hopefully will make us all stop for a minute and realize how precious (and short) life can be. Don't be afraid to do an extra good deed today, to your family or a total stranger.

    God Bless you Bobbi.... you will be missed.
