Ballet Legend Hit by 2 Cars Trying to Save (what She Thought Was) an Opossum

Pathetic is the word that comes to mind.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ng-possum.html

Renowned former ballet dancer and actress Zina Bethune was hit and killed by two vehicles after getting out of her car in an apparent attempt to help a wounded animal.
Ms Bethune, 66, whose married name is Zina Feeley, was driving near Los Angeles’ Griffith Park when she saw what she thought was a wounded animal.
She then left her Lincoln Towncar running early Sunday and got out to help what turned out to be a dead opossum when she was hit by an eastbound vehicle.

Dancer: Zina Bethune, 66, died after she was hit by two cars in Los Angeles
That car then thrown into the opposite lane, where she was hit by another vehicle that dragged her body more than 600 feet, police said.
She had severe head injuries and died at the scene.
Police have not identified the car that was involved in the second collision. The driver may have fled or may have been among the many drivers interviewed by investigators at the scene.
Ms Bethune trained under famed dance instructor George Balanchine and began dancing with the New York City Ballet at age 14 despite suffering from scoliosis and lymphedema.

Famous heyday: Ms Bethune seen center in an undated photo with Goldie Hawn on the left, and child actors Danny Pintaro and Joey Lawrence
'I was born to dance, in my heart, but not in my body,' she told a Los Angeles Times reporter in 1999.
In 1980 she founded the Bethune Theatredance performance company which is now the official company of the Los Angeles Theater Center.
Starting in 1982, she taught dance to thousands of disabled Southern California children through her nonprofit dance company, originally named Dance Outreach but now known as Infinite Dreams.
She also sang and danced on Broadway, and appeared in many TV soap operas, including 'The Guiding Light' in the 1950s and 'Santa Barbara' in the 1980s.
On the big screen she was best known for appearing opposite Harvey Keitel in director Martin Scorcese's 1967 feature debut, 'Who's That Knocking At My Door.'

it maybe better for all involved if compassion was coupled with an instinct of preservation of self and others. if a car had swerved to miss her and killed a innocent bystander on the street, all for an already dead opossum, the story would have a different tone to it.
