NBC announced over the weekend that it would no longer rebroadcast the graphic video of Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili’s fatal Olympics training accident, after numerous viewer complaints, the Associated Press reports.

All three major broadcast networks showed the video on their Friday newscasts and NBC aired it at the beginning of its Olympics opening ceremony coverage. NBC also put the video on its web site.
