Comments: Eric Rudolph pleads guilty to all charges in exchange for life instead of death

I remember watching TV the night of the bombing because my girlfriend at the time was in ATL for the Olympics. I thought it was a cameraman or male photographer that died of a heart attack during the bombing.

Was the woman referred to someone that died more directly as a result of the explosion or am I mistaken on the sex of the press person who died?

Alice Hawthorne was fatally injured by shrapnel from the explosion itself.

If memory serves, a cameraman (I'm pretty sure he was Romanian, but I could be mistaken) died of a heart attack en route to covering the explosion.

I remember the night it happened - we had just moved into a new apartment; I had just dozed off when my wife shook me awake. I ended up watching live coverage all night long.

That sounds right about the Romanian, I had forgotten about the shrapnel death.
