Tragedy at SDCC - Twilight fan dies whilst waiting to see Rob...

Update...

Official release from Summit regarding this sad news:
Lionsgate, Summit and the entire Twilight community are saddened by the death of a Comic-Con fan today due to a traffic accident during the hours leading up to this year’s convention in San Diego. Our thoughts and condolences go out to the victim’s family and friends. She will be respectfully remembered this Thursday in Hall H.

Sadly, a fellow Twilight fan and follower of our humble blog was hit by a car and pronounced dead at arrival in hospital, in San Diego today.

Gisela G, aka @Mad4Hugh had travelled to San Diego from upper New York City for the Breaking Dawn Part 2 panel at Comic Con in hopes of seeing Rob Pattinson.

Reports are still confused and conflicted - it seems Gisela had been camping with her friends, saw the line was moving so raced back to join but tripped on the curb and fell into traffic.

Fans are honouring her in their own ways such as leaving a seat empty during the panel, holding a minute silence at 8pm EST tonight and contributing to her funeral fund at Give Forward.

Our thoughts and sympathy are with her family and friends at this time - rest in peace.

  2. When your time is up it is up. Maybe her death will remind people to be more careful
