    [h=1]Beloved Dancer, Actress Killed In Hit-And-Run Crash While Helping Wounded Animal In Road[/h]
    Police need the public’s help to find the drivers in a hit-and-run crash that killed a ballet dancer and teacher of disabled children. Zina Feeley, 66, known professionally as Zina Bethune, had stopped on Forest Lawn Drive to check on a small animal lying in the other side of road. As she walked toward the fallen animal, she was struck by a car, throwing her backwards, where she was struck by a second car and dragged for more than 600 feet, Los Angeles Police traffic detectives said.
    “I know if she drove by a deceased animal her heart would break,†Bethune’s friend Paula Woodley said.

    The drivers of several cars stopped to help, but it could not be determined which car was involved in the second crash.

    Detectives believe a white car was seen leaving the scene right after the second crash.
    Feeley was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.
    “You know, I feel like the air left the room. How do you breathe after losing your best friend?†Woodley said of Bethune.

    The acclaimed dancer overcame scoliosis and lymphedema to perform with the New York City Ballet at 14 years old. Bethune also worked as an actress in television and movies.
    Bethune graced the stage with her elegance and touched hearts with her generosity. In 1982, she launched Infinite Dreams, a dance and drama outreach program for children with disabilities.
    Bethune’s husband was too upset to speak on camera but told KCAL9 that he lost the love of his life — and his dance partner. The couple was married for 42 years.

    I think the animal in question was a dead opossum, of all things.

    Zina Bethune starred in "Who's That Knocking At My Door?", Martin Scorsese's first film.

    Yes. She lost her life trying to save a helpless, injured animal ~ she was so beautiful inside and out.

    Sad shit. Nothing worse than seeing somebody who does good work die trying to do something nice.

    Jay Thomas talked about it and, thankfully, really didn't say anything negative.

    A few years back there was some guy who moved to Philly from Minnesota. He had this awesome job lined up elsewhere, but he went to Philly to teach ghetto kids math instead. As soon as he got there some piece of shit shot him in the head for his fucking iPod. Shit like that almost makes you wish these people never gave a damn about doing some good for the world.

    You are one funny son of a bitch. Have been for years.


    All you need is a speeding car racing through after the fall.

    Well thank you sir!
    I do like to have my fun. But I'd have to turn the speeding car over to one of the gif masters, because I'm pretty sucky at it. :facepalm:

    You have given out too much Reputation in the last 24 hours, try again later. :cuss:

    I wonder if it ever crossed her mind how the animal came to be injured IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD.
