NEWS: Next GH Tragedy, Ellen Dolan, Mekhi Phifer, Patrick Gibbons

Scoop on the Next GENERAL HOSPITAL Tragedy
ABC's GENERAL HOSPITAL will kick off the new year by sending its young ones — ranging in age from tots to teenagers — on a Christmas vacation bus trip to snow country. That bus is forced to take an unplanned route due to weather trouble and will skid on black ice and flip over during the December 29 cliffhanger. When the show returns January 3, the bus will plummet down a steep ravine, thanks to some cool CGI tricks.

Says executive producer Jill Farren Phelps. "There will be death. In fact, two people die — one immediately and one later on as a result of an injury."
