Twilight fan tragically dies in accident at Comic Con

It’s a very very sad day for Twilight fans as one of our own was struck by a car and killed while crossing the street outside of Hall H at Comic Con this morning in San Diego. The woman was unconscious as a result of the hit, and was taken to the nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the woman, identified as Twitter user @Mad4Hugh named Gisela, her family and friends.

See various updates at Twilight Examiner who has been compiling information, including details about a petition for a moment of silence during the Breaking Dawn Part 2 panel on Thursday.

And to the rest of the TWilight fans (and everyone else) at Comic Con this week, please BE SAFE!

    Go fuck yourself. Your a cruel ass bitch.. Someone dies and you say that.. I would wish the same on you. But karma is a bitch.

  • Skynni J

    Aww I bet she was so excited about breaking dawn part 2 :( your family is my prayers

  • Robynswaze95

    You shouldn't type things like these and post them… i bet you just wanted to see how many people you could get to flip out at you. either way, you must have cared if you bothered to click on the link to see what happened. You must be a sad and lonely person, who is mad at the world to put something like that about someone you don't even know. Let's see how you would feel if you were the one struck and on your dying way to the hospital and some careless, inconsiderate fool commented on “that's what you get”… You better hope and pray your name isn't on the next headline…

  • Robynswaze95

    haha you should read what i said to tina :)

  • Dawn

    thats what the heartless bitch gets lmao

  • Aapo Jauhiainen

    Sad :(

  • Chynamartin622

    o my god thats like so sad

  • Weiser

    To the family!!!!! Prayers and blessings to you. Gisela's family just needs to ignore people like Tina they are useless and cold hearted. Keep your heads up Gisela is going to be well taking care of by our Lord no doubt about that. At least she's not in any pain from the incident. God Bless!!!! As for Tina you just know that if it was you that was killed that they wouldnt even bother cause you are heartless and ruthless woman. 

  • Gabbie

    i think that is inappropriate, someone's family is in mourning and although this is a twilight page, saying such a comment at this time is insensitive. 

    RIP <3

  • Sharonjem

    my prayers are with her family and friends RIP x

  • Kimisangel

    Look both ways before crossing the street…

  • Pinkcaramel27

    Very sad and prayers go out to her family.. And Tina you are so cold hearted shame on you :(

  • Cyndi

    You know that maybe she (Tina) is just seeking attention, and you just gave her as much as possible. In this world it is sometimes much better to ignore all those people that say stupid stuff.

  • Melanietkd

    WOW!! i feel soo bad for her!! R.I.P!!!

  • Kurt88smith

    A moment of silence for that poor lady. And I hope that the person who hit her should feel really bad about what he or she has done

  • Celest

    So sad. Poor woman goes to Comic Con and loses her life. My deepest sympathy to the family and friends. She's in a better place now..

  • Jenkitten

    There is a tiny flag that pops up next to the time it was posted, a little flag… FLAG AS INNAPROPRIATE!

  • Bcdreams18

    RIP and People disgust me that say she deserved it (TINA). Remember as others have also said “KARMA is a B**ch. My condolenses to the family and do not take anything negative to your heart, I hope you can remember the good times in time, I know not now. Love and blessings.

  • Sjsja

    easy said then done

  • Twihard_TeamEdward

    thoughts go out to the family and friends. so sorry for the loss of such a great person. R.I.P fellow Twihard. 

  • TeamEdward_Bella4ever

    Who in the world would say such a horrible thing about someone they don't even know and wasn't doing anything that would hurt someone. Just living life and doing something she obviously enjoyed. That person must truely be a sociopath type personality to say something that unfeeling.

  • TeamEdward_Bella4ever

    I don't know all the details, but the article stated that she  was running  crossing the road and tried to stop herself when she saw the car, but  tripped and fell into the car as it was passing. It was and older couple, it said that were devastated. I can't even imagine how horrible it is for all involved. 

  • Lalley87

    Wow..how is that what she gets?? She was crossing the street…How does anyone deserve that? Take your nasty comment someone else, youre not welcome here..
