Was DN Wrong to Run This Photo Of Hit-and-Run Victim?
On Sunday morning, Rock School for Dance Education ballerina Polina Kadiyska was struck by an allegedly drunken teenage driver. On Tuesday at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, she died after being taken off life support. And today, the Philadelphia Daily News eulogized her. On the cover, the paper teased the “SEXY DANCER” story, and on page 5, they ran this photo (the victim is on the left), as well as another less “SEXY” photo of her in a tutu and ballet shoes. Bad idea?
