    They mentioned that on 1560 but still can't find a report to document back-up his passing. Most reports are saying "life threatening auto accident"

    26 yrs old is way too young for this to happen. Sad.

    Joe Reedy of Cincinnati Enquirer reporting that Chris Henry is on life support and situation is "dire".

    This is incredibly sad. I know the guy has had trouble but I like the fact that he kept coming back and trying. I think he had avoided trouble this year. Sounds like he jumped in truck and got thrown. My prayers to him

    He kept coming back because he needed the money and this is all he knows how to do. It's not any more noble than that.

    Based on what little I know of him, Chris Henry isn't a very good person. But nobody deserves this. I hope he pulls through.

    I'm not saying his death or life affects my life. We didn't know him. But the coach kept giving him shots. But my condolences are sincere. I'm by no mean naive. At 39, I almost died twice of two random events to my heart that had nothing to do with my lifestyle or genetics. Just a fluke flu bug and a messed up procedure. My perspective after this really put focus on my kids and family even more(I was tight with my family and was a doting Dad before) So when I see a guy really flawed like Henry and I read he might have finally gotten it, I'd like to think that hopefully he had a wake up call and maybe his kids and family started taking priority. With that said, it would be ashame to get it and then lose it all. Especially if the kids loved him for being Dad and not the guy with a rap sheet.
