I sometimes watch this show,and was shocked to hear this news. 14-year-old boy dies on TV's Wife Swap 29th September 2006 TV's Wife Swap is dealing with a second blow the death of a 14-year-old boy during the programme's production. Daniel Reece was found dead by his mother just hours after Channel 4 had finished filming final scenes for a new series of the hit reality TV documentary. The boy had died in his sleep on September 5. It is thought he was struck down by the mysterious illness Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SAD). News of the tragedy broke yesterday the day it was revealed shooting for another episode of Wife Swap had been halted after a female participant reported a claim of sexual assault to police. Daniels heartbroken mother, Karen, said her family husband Darren, 38, and her three children, Stewart, 17, Daniel and nine-year-old Jessica, from a previous relationship were delighted when they were chosen to go on the show. Karen went to stay with a family in Torquay for 10 days while the wife from the other family lived with the Reece's in Crewe, Cheshire. The 35-year-old told The Sun: "We were so excited when we were picked to go on Wife Swap, especially Daniel. After we finished filming, he went up to his room to watch television before he went to bed. "I remember the last thing I said to him was to turn it off because it was past his bedtime. The next morning his brother tried to wake him but he was dead. Just lying there lifeless in his bed." She added: "I don't know how we've coped over the past three weeks, it has been awful." The makers of Wife Swap, RDF Television, said the programme the Reece family appeared in would not be shown, as a mark of respect.
