Two people reportedly died after falling into an open-pit toilet.
Her husband, in an attempt to get back her phone, climbed down into the pit. However, he lost consciousness while inside the knee-deep pit due to a lack of oxygen. The woman’s mother-in-law tried to jump in to save her son, but also passed out.
After the woman shouted for help, neighbors came, and many tried to rescue them, but some of them also fainted.
“The smell was too strong. I lost consciousness before I could see anything,” a neighbor said.
After finding a rope, the people pulled a total of six people out of the cesspit.
The husband and his mother had weak pulses immediately following the rescue, but they were both pronounced dead upon the arrival of medical respondents.
When you get swole, it’s hard not to flex. But what if you flex too hard?
You might pass out. Then your friends will laugh at you, negating the swole factor.
Dr. Matthew Valente has seen his share of sticky situations in his years as a Chicago-based emergency room physicians, but none were as weird as the man who superglued his hand to his penis.
“The night before, [the patient’ was fixing his lamp next to his bed and he left the superglue tube on the nightstand,” Valente explained on an episode of “Sex Sent Me To The E.R.” airing Saturday on TLC.
The glue tube just happened to be next to a tube of lubrication he kept on hand for when he and his wife were in the mood for love.
Some time in the middle of the night, the unidentified male and his wife decided to have sex and he reached for what he thought was the lubricant.
“Only he went a little too fast, and — voila! — his hand became stuck to his penis,” Valente said.
It was a sight to behold, according to the good doctor.
“This was a large amount of skin that was affixed together,” Valente said. “There wasn’t just a small amount of glue. It wasn’t just one finger. It was, in fact, his entire palm and all his fingers, which were tightly affixed to his genitals.”
The patient’s wife was impatient for the man to get his hand off his sex organs, so Dr. Valente started researching ways to remove superglue.
The most popular suggestion was nail polish remover, a solution that presented certain risks.
“The problem with that is when you dump acetone on top of a wound that is partially open, it’s incredibly painful,” Valente said. “Just the look in his eyes when I told him that, I could tell he didn’t want to go down that route.”
Other options included applying hot, almost scalding water to the glue or simply waiting for the outer layer of skin to fall off — a process that might take two to three days.
Valente says the patient’s wife wanted the quickest option possible and didn’t seem concerned about how her hubby might feel.
“She was more concerned about making the dinner than his level of comfort or the fact that he’s in excruciating pain because he superglued his penis,” Valente said.
The story about how the man finally got unglued won’t be revealed until Saturday, but since the show isn’t titled “Sex Sent Me To The Morgue,” it’s a good chance he survived.
Lucie Brownlee found herself widowed at 36 following Mark Johnston’s sudden death.
The pair had been trying for a baby and were making love at what was judged to be the best possible time to conceive.
But the Government intelligence analyst suffered a catastrophic arrhythmia – an abnormality in the heartbeat – and could not be revived.
Lucie first wrote a blog, then a book about the intensely personal journey which helped her cope with her own grief – and helped others who have lost loved ones.
She told how Mark’s last words were: “You’ve still got your socks on” and explains her feelings since with searing honesty.
Lucie, 38, who has a six-year-old daughter by him, said: “I was just at a complete loss as to what to do after Mark died and I started the blog and then the book as a way of handling it.
“I had to be completely candid. I was watching the programme ‘One Born Every Minute’ on TV and thought that was the most intimate moment of someone’s life to show on telly.
“But nobody speaks about death and I just felt it was so traumatic and so completely shocking that I had to tell it all, exactly as it happened.
“It almost removes a bit of the power of death. I understand that some people feel such things should be private and I also respect that.
“But I have been very, very candid about it and the lovely thing is that I have had other widows and widowers read it, and tell me ‘thanks for being so honest’.”
A lecturer as well as an author, Lucie, who lives near Sedgefield, Co Durham, went through months of being unable to work after Mark’s death, but then used her writing to give voice to her feelings.
Mark, who worked at GCHQ and was just 37 when he died, had collapsed four years prior to his death. Medics discovered that his aorta had ruptured. But he was believed to be fit and healthy after an op.
On the day of his death, they had been making love at Lucie’s mother’s house.
Lucie recalled: “It wasn’t ideal but we didn’t want to miss out on the window to conceive. We had only just started making love when he collapsed.
“His last words to me were, ‘you’ve still got your socks on’. I thought he’d collapsed with his heart, but it didn’t cross my mind that he wouldn’t wake up.
“I don’t think you can ever reconcile that – you cannot accept it because it is unacceptable.
“The person I was before 8.14 on the evening of February 11, 2012 is completely different to the person I was after 8.15.
“I have become stronger and done things I never thought I would be able to do, and yet been as fragile as sponge sugar.
“A new person emerges, and this is what I mean about writing about the most intimate things – it is not that I don’t care what people think, it is just there are no rules on what you need to get through.”
Lucie admits she ‘drank like a fish’ and embarked upon a ‘completely inappropriate’ affair in the wake of Mark’s death.
She added: “I had a fling with a plumber who had come round to do some work on my house.
“It was completely inappropriate, and my friends and family were worried that I wasn’t coping in the right way.
“But there is no appropriate way to deal with grief. Mine has been chaotic and unruly. There are no rules.”
Lucie started writing a blog in April last year and has just published “Me After You”. She added: “Once I did write again, it was lovely, because it was as though I was spending time with Mark every single day.
“He was such a positive person, so friendly and so loving.
“He was a one off in every possible way, including the way he died.”
A couple was arrested Saturday night after cops spotted them having sex on the roof of a Chipotle restaurant in Delaware.
According to Newark Police officials, cops responded to the eatery around 9:40 PM after receiving multiple witness reports about “two people engaging in sexual intercourse on the roof above Chipotle.”
After arriving on the scene, an officer “clearly observed the two defendants engaging in sexual intercourse on the roof at the very front of the Chipotle building,” according to police. Though the cop directed the duo to cease copulating, they “continued for approximately 15-20 seconds before stopping.”
When the patrolman announced that the pair was under arrest, they fled from the roof and ran to a nearby apartment, where they were later apprehended. Michael Suh, 38, and Nicole Germack, 27, were each charged with lewdness, resisting arrest, indecent exposure, conspiracy, and loitering. Seen in the above mug shots, the defendants were each released from custody on $1800 bond.
It is unclear why the pair–both of whom live in Newark–decided to have sex on the Chipotle roof. Though Suh lives next door to the Mexican restaurant and his apartment windows may look out onto the fast food joint’s roof.
Two people were hurt in a crash caused by a toy gun Tuesday evening.
A driver told investigators she slammed on the brakes when she saw a boy lean out the backseat window of a car in front of hers, pointing what she thought to be a gun at her. A car following behind was unable to stop in time and rear-ended her car. Trying to swerve, that car ended up in the opposite lane of traffic, hitting an SUV head-on, causing it to rollover.
“It looked like a bomb went off,” says Rance Gehri, who lives on 59 near the crash scene. “There was a Jeep over here turned upside down.”
After an investigation, authorities found the 11-year-old boy’s family just down the road at a campground. His grandmother had been driving and said she didn’t know there had been an accident. Capt. Jude Maurer says the gun was a toy, an Airsoft pellet gun.
“When seen from a distance it can easily be misconstrued as an actual firearm, which in this case is what happened,” Maurer tells 27 News. “The driver felt threatened, felt concerned that she was going to be shot.”
Despite extensive vehicular damage, no one was seriously hurt. Two people, including the driver of the SUV that rolled and the second car following behind the vehicle with the boy inside, were taken to the hospital with minor injuries but released a short time later.
Maurer says while the boy likely did not intend to cause the crash, his actions were serious. The sheriff’s office is asking juvenile authorities to require the boy serve probation for disorderly conduct.
BB and pellet guns are legal, but authorities remind parents to monitor how their children use them. They recommend only using them inside the home or on private property.
An 11-year-old boy pointed a toy gun out a car window caused an accident at 2801 E. Highway 59.
The Janesville Gazette reports that two drivers were going west on the highway and slammed on their brakes when they saw the boy point the toy gun, which they thought was real. Then, a third vehicle swerved and hit another vehicle.
People in the two vehicles behind the boy were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Rock County 911 Center says the accident happened around 5:45 p.m. Tuesday near Lakeland Camping Resort. The accident blocked the road, and both lanes were closed for about an hour between E. Vincent Road and E. County N.
The Janesville Gazette says the 11-year-old was referred to juvenile authorities for disorderly conduct, but no citations were issued.
The Bucks County Courier Times reports the accident happened around noon on Friday near a shopping center in Feasterville, Pennsylvania.
A photo on the newspaper’s website shows the corpse, wrapped in what appears to be a white sheet, lying in the street as cars buzz by. The Bucks County Coroner’s Office says the driver realized immediately that the door had opened and retrieved the body within minutes. The office says it “deeply regrets” the incident.
A passer-by who helped get the body into the van says he thought it was a prank, calling it “the most bizarre thing” he’d ever seen.
Police in Pamplona are searching for a bull runner who they believe snapped a selfie as he ran just inches ahead of several charging bulls weighing more than a half a tonne each.
As the young man slowed to take a photo in one of the final stretches of the fifth bull run of the San Fermín festival on Friday, he was captured on camera by several Spanish media. He now faces a fine of up to €3,000 under regulations passed this year by the city of Pamplona. The regulations, designed to crack down on dangerous behaviour during the festival, prohibit the unauthorised use of any kind of recording device during the bull runs.
The festival, which traces its roots back to the 13th century, has come under pressure in recent years to fight back against daredevils as its global profile increases. Images of the thousands of runners dressed in red and white as they tear through the narrow streets of Pamplona pursued by stampeding bulls have now become commonplace in foreign media, and tens of thousands of Spanish and foreign tourists descend on the city to take part in the festival’s nine days of alcohol-fuelled partying and bull runs.
As pictures of the man circulated on social networks under the hashtag#eltontolmóvil, meaning the idiot with the mobile, many criticised his lack of respect for the other participants in the run. El Mundo’s José Luis Vadillo wrote that the photo was “one of the best examples of human stupidity I’ve ever seen”, pointing out that he had put other runners in tremendous danger.
Fifteen people have been killed in the festival since record-keeping began in the early 1900s. Dozens more are injured each year in the festival, most of them during the panicked chaos of the morning bull runs.
According to NBC Los Angeles, the incident happened on Thursday night while the bus was traveling at 45 miles per hour on the San Diego Freeway. A witness told NBC that the teenager, Mason Zisette, may have been standing on his seat:
A witness told NBC4 that the teen may have been dancing on a seat cushion with his back to the freeway signs when his head and hands slammed into the sign. He then collapsed on the floor, the witness said.
About two dozen teens—most under 18 years old—were dancing on the upper level when the incident occurred, while all of the adult chaperones were inside the bus. Zisette was rushed to the hospital and listed in critical condition. He died two days later.
