Bombing Victim. She was the only fatality from the bomb that exploded in Atlanta during the 1996 Summer Olympics. The early morning blast in Centennial Olympic Park injured more than 100 persons in addition to Hawthorne's daughter Fallon Stubbs. They were hit by flying shrapnel made up of screws and nails that were packed in the bomb. A Turkish cameraman died of a heart attack while rushing to cover the aftermath of the blast.
