This little girl was on The Today Show this morning for this reason: She has had a violent case of the hiccups for three weeks and they won't go away. All I had time for was to see the "teases" to the segment and there she sat, hiccupping in the most painful of ways.
It was one of the saddest things I've ever seen. (Ok, maybe an overstatement, but it was pretty sad.)
NBC has the video up on its website (and is surprisingly fast loading.)
