Nodar Kumaritashvili Crash Video – Georgia Luger Dies in Olympic Training

Nodar Kumaritashvili, an Olympic luger from Georgia, has just died while training in Vancouver hours before the opening ceremonies. This is absolutely insane. I found out via Twitter just minutes ago and it has yet to show up on ESPN, CNN or Drudge Report. I know this isn’t web development related at all, but the point I wanted to make was that traditional news outlets are no longer really relevant as far as breaking the big news stories.

UPDATE - The video is now available from CBS News and I have decided to post it below.

Caution – The video is very tragic and quite graphic.
