Man Has Twin Brother In Stomach

Sanju Bhagat's stomach was once so swollen he looked nine months pregnant and could barely breathe. iving in the city of Nagpur, India, Bhagat said he'd felt self-conscious his whole life about his big belly. But one night in June 1999, his problem erupted into something much larger than cosmetic worry. Mehta said that he can usually spot a tumor just after he begins an operation. But while operating on Bhagat, Mehta saw something he had never encountered. As he cut deeper into Bhagat's stomach, gallons of fluid spilled out — and then something extraordinary happened. "First, one limb came out, then another limb came out. Then some part of genitalia, then some part of hair, some limbs, jaws, limbs, hair."
At first glance, it may look as if Bhagat had given birth. Actually, Mehta had removed the mutated body of Bhagat's twin brother from his stomach. Bhagat, they discovered, had one of the world's most bizarre medical conditions — fetus in fetu. It is an extremely rare abnormality that occurs when a fetus gets trapped inside its twin. The trapped fetus can survive as a parasite even past birth by forming an umbilical cordlike structure that leaches its twin's blood supply until it grows so large that it starts to harm the host, at which point doctors usually intervene.

Man Pushes Friend Away, Drinks Pint Of Vodka in 4 Seconds, Then Dies

A man died after downing a pint of vodka in four seconds, an inquest heard.

Richard Davies, 29, from Thornaby, near Stockton, had been drinking with friends before the alcohol knocked him unconscious in January.

Mr Davies was found not breathing in a pool of his own blood, and died hours later.

Recording a verdict of misadventure, Teesside coroner Tony Eastwood said the alcohol in his system had killed him.

The hearing on Tuesday at Teesside Coroner's Court was told how the electrician's mate was five-and-a-half times the legal drink-drive limit and his body contained traces of the then-legal high mephedrone, which has since been banned.

However, Mr Eastwood said the alcohol in his system had killed him and that the mephedrone was not a contributing factor.

Man Has Knife Removed From Head After 3 Years

A 29-year-old tire repairman from northeastern Brazil is recovering after doctors removed a 10-centimetre blade that has been stuck in the front of his head for three years after a bar fight.
Edeilson Nascimento told the local Terra news agency that doctors previously told him not to take the knife out because it could cause further damage including lesions in the brain stem which could result in death. "In three years I felt bad headaches every day of my life from the time I woke up until bedtime," he told Terra news. "So I stopped working."
A team of seven people, including three neurosurgeons, from the hospital at the Federal University of Pernambuco removed the knife without causing further harm over the course of a three-hour surgery on Tuesday. Nascimento is expected to be released from Recife hospital next week.

Man Survives Passing Out With Head In Museum Noose

DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) - An Arkansas man got a frightening look at frontier justice when he passed out with a display noose around his head during a trip to a Wild West-themed Kansas museum, officials said.
Police in Dodge City, Kan., have declined to release the name of the 69-year-old visitor from Parks, Ark. They said he lost consciousness Wednesday and slumped in the "Hanging Tree" noose display at the Boot Hill Museum.
Museum director Lara Brehm said museum staff and two women he was with helped remove the man from the noose, and that he regained consciousness before being taken to a hospital.
The noose usually hangs 15 feet in the air, and the museum doesn't know how it came to be hanging low enough for a visitor to reach it, Brehm said. It was hanging in its proper place when the museum closed the night before the incident, she said.

"From what we understand he was using it as a photo opportunity," Brehm said. "We don't know for sure how it came to be where anybody could reach it."

Brehm said it was unclear why the man passed out, and that his feet remained on the ground.

"It was not a hanging in the sense that we use that word," she said.

Brehm said the man remained in stable condition Thursday at a Wichita hospital. She said he had pre-existing conditions that warranted the move to Wichita.

The noose had been hanging where it was since the museum opened 63 years ago without incident, Brehm said. It has been taken down, and officials had not decided another would be put back up.

"We'll make the appropriate decision when we figure out what happened," she said.

Woman’s Body Cut in Half And Lives

Manitoban Janis Ollson and family are in magazine ads for the esteemed Mayo Clinic for a very good reason: she's the first person surgeons cut in half, removed much of a cancerous midsection, then put back together with a happy ending.
On Friday, the Balmoral, Man., woman was at her daughter's school to talk to students about Sunday's Terry Fox Run, and how funds raised for cancer research are keeping people like her alive.
Three years ago, the 31-year-old was pregnant with her second child and had been suffering years of horrible back pain when Canadian doctors diagnosed her with bone cancer, chondrosarcoma.
Sarcoma experts in Toronto said they'd literally have to cut her in half to get at the untreatable cancer, remove her leg, lower spine and half her pelvis.
The problem was they didn't know how to put her back together again.
They certainly didn't know how she would have a decent quality of life. They consulted with the Mayo Clinic and the Rochester, Minn., doctors decided to try something new.
Ollson became the first person to receive a "pogo stick" rebuild, with her one good leg fused to her body with the reshaped bone from the amputated leg.

Man Drinks With Girlfriends Head In A Bag At A Bar Then Dies

MADRID - A Spanish man calmly drank beer with his mates in a bar with his murdered girlfriend's head in a bag, press reports said Tuesday.
After leaving the bar on Sunday, the 34-year-old climbed an electrical tower, was hit by a shock and plunged 30 metres (100 feet) to the ground, dying that evening in hospital, they said.
According to a report in the ABC daily newspaper, citing witnesses, the man told friends in the bar in Cordoba, southern Spain, that he had decapitated his 30-year-old partner.
But he was so calm they did not believe him, despite bloodstains on his shirt.
"A while later when several customers left the bar and saw a pool of blood in the road, they immediately realized this was not a macabre joke. Horrified, they discovered a bag near the bar, inside of which was the victim's head," the ABC daily said.

Woman Buries Knife In Lung After Feet Stink Comment

EVERETT, Wash. — Prosecutors in Washington state say an 18-year-old woman stabbed a 19-year-old man for teasing her that her feet smelled. The Herald of Everett reported the man was found by police with a steak knife sticking out of his back, buried a few inches in. His lung had collapsed. Officials said he'll recover.
Charging papers said trouble started when Dallas Amber Smith was drinking and hanging out with friends and was challenged to do a back flip. When she took off her shoes to do the back flip, the teasing started.
Smith had no criminal history. She faces charges of second-degree assault with a deadly weapon.
Smith's attorney, Dave Allen of Seattle, declined to comment on the case Friday, saying he'd do that in court.

Teen Accidentally Texts Sheriff For Pot

If you're going to text your drug dealer, make sure you've got the correct number.
That's a lesson a teenage boy in Helena, Montana, learned the hard way.
Instead of sending a text message to his dealer, police say he sent one to Lewis and Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton.
Police said the text read: “Hey Dawg, do you have a $20 I can buy right now?”
Dutton told the Helena Independent Record he thought it was just a joke at first.
“I was looking around to see if there was someone outside my window playing a prank.”
When it seemed clear he'd received an inadvertent text, he decided to play along. He said he told the teen to meet him at a local business.
When police showed up, they found two teens and an older man. Detectives called the teens over and flashed their badges. Police told the Recorder both kids turned white, and one of them fainted.
But in the end, the kids got off with a slap on the wrist. No charges were laid.
“When the detective saw there were parents that wanted to be involved he took the right action and I’m really proud of the deputy,” Dutton said.
“Trying to buy drugs is a crime, but it’s probably worse that they had to face their parents.”

Sheriff Shoots Deer 17 Times?

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – A sheriff's deputy in Gainesville had to fire 17 shots to put down a deer hit by a car. The Alachua sheriff's department said the deputy was "horrified" by what happened Wednesday, and would be referred to a victim advocate.
The deputy didn't know where to shoot the animal, so he called a superior. The sergeant said to aim for the heart, behind the deer's shoulder. Instead, the deputy fired repeatedly into the stomach until the animal died.
The sheriff's department said the deputy did nothing wrong and won't be reprimanded. They now plan to train patrol staff to quickly kill a distressed animal that can't be saved, The Gainesville Sun reported.

Man Kills Wife With TV Remote Control

A man from LondonEngland has been sentenced to three years in prison after killing his wife by hitting her in the head with a television remote control. The trial was held in the Old Bailey, a famous court in London.
The court heard how 46-year-old electrical engineer Paul Harvey was arguing with 48-year-old American wife Gloria Laguna on topics relating to the man's step-daughter's education and his former wife. At the time, both husband and wife had consumed alcohol and cocaine.
Cquote1.svgAll he did was throw the remote control in her direction.Cquote2.svg
—Jonathan Goldberg QC
When Paul threw the remote control, which weighed 160 grams, at Gloria, neither were aware of the fact that Gloria suffered from an extremely rare health condition which meant that an artery in her neck was weak. The remote control hit the area, causing Gloria to have a large brain haemorrhage. Paul attempted to give his wife the kiss of life, however he was unsuccessful and she later died from her injuries. Paul pleaded guilty to manslaughter in March of this year.
Johnathan Goldberg QC, who was defending Paul Harvey, said: "All he did was throw the remote control in her direction. By a fluke chance, maybe the same as, in a different context, winning the lottery, it landed on the exact spot where she had a weakness. He loved this woman very much. She was obviously a very fine woman who gave up her work for him. He is deeply ashamed and remorseful at the death of his wife at his hand."
Prosecuting was Richard Whittam QC. He said: "It would only have required a trivial incident to cause her death."
When sentencing Mr. Harvey, Judge Giles Forrester spoke to him. "You killed your wife, who was rightly been described by your counsel as a fine woman," he said. "You have this streak of anger and violence within your character that does surface from time to time."

Lightning Hits Boy, 13, at 13:13 on Friday 13th

It could be argued that he's lucky to be alive.

The Daily Telegraph reports that at precisely 1:13 p.m. (or 13:13), an ambulance in the county of Suffolk in east England attended to a 13-year-old boy that was struck by lightning on Friday 13th.

The unidentified teen was taken to hospital where country ambulance officer Jason Gillingham told the paper, "This was a very minor burn to the boy's shoulder, but he was conveyed to hospital and is recovering well."

The boy was attending an air show put on by the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team in the town of Lowestoft when a thunderstorm suddenly rolled in. Another teen and a woman were also hit by lightning but they did not require hospital treatment.

The next Friday 13th is May 2011.

Doom: Doomsday Bunker Collapses, Preacher Sent To Loony Bin

A Russian doomsday cult sheltering in a bunker say credit cards and food packaging bar codes are satanic, the official negotiating the release of children from the group said on Monday. Around 30 followers, including four children, from across Russia and neighboring Belarus met last October and barricaded themselves into a hillside to escape an apocalypse their preacher says is looming in either April or May. "For us right now, what's most important is the children," said Alexander Yelatontsev, an official from Russia's Penza Oblast region, who has been the chief point of contact for the cult since the siege began. "They have burned their passports and say that all plastic (credit) cards and strip codes on food packaging are the work of Satan," he told reporters. Yelatontsev said the people underground were in contact with him regularly, and would accept food only if it had not been processed with modern factory equipment. "Right now they are asking for a cow so that they can have fresh, boiled milk that is not processed," he said. He said progress was slow but local authorities were negotiating with the group to leave their refuge. "In as much as their beliefs have been formed over a long period of time, convincing them to come out is not going to happen quickly," he said. Local residents said the bunker was a pre-revolutionary convent, with a well, a kitchen and areas for sleeping and praying. On Friday the entrance to the bunker partially collapsed after rain and melting snow soaked the muddy hillside and the ground gave way.

Happens All The Time: Man Cuts Off His Sausage With Saw

A 54-year-old carpenter in Wantage, England, accidentally cut off his own penis while working with a saw, his mother says.
Stuart Keen's mother, Edna, told The Sunday Telegraph her son had been cutting wood for a cabinet when the saw inflicted the horrific injury. Surgeons were able to reattach the severed appendage, she said.
"Stuart is a carpenter and uses sharp and sometimes dangerous tools," Keen's mother said.
"This was an unfortunate accident but these things happen all the time to people in his profession."
A South Central Ambulance Service spokesman said paramedics found him bleeding in his bathtub.

Update: ‘The Ugly One’ Monster Mystery

A snaggle-toothed, furry creature with a bald face and a rat’s tale has mystified natives in northern Ontario, but they have a name and a history for it.
“The elders used to see it a long time ago,” the manager of Sam’s Store in Big Trout Lake told the Star on Friday.
“No one has seen one for 40 years or so. The elders have a word for it: omajinaakoos. In English, it means ‘the ugly one’.”
Two Health Canada nurses training at the Kitchenuhmaykoosib Band reserve south of Hudson’s Bay said their dog Sam hauled out the 30-centimetre creature it found in early May floating face down near the causeway on the reserve, band spokesman Darryl Sainnawap told the Star.
“It looks like a mixed breed of an otter and a beaver,” he said. “We’re just as curious as everyone to find out what it is.”

Man Dies 28 Times And Lives

A man whose heart stopped 28 times after a road accident has thanked doctors who saved his life.

X-ray of Steve Nixon's heart and pacemaker
Biker Steve Nixon was wired for life with a heart pacemaker after a crash
Motorcyclist Steven Nixon suffered a massive heart attack when he was in collision with a car in Husbands Bosworth, Leicestershire, last year.
Paramedics at the scene revived his heart five times before he was airlifted to University Hospital in Coventry, where a team of cardiologists saved him a further 23 times.
The 44-year-old former warehouse manager also sustained a fractured skull, broken bones in his back, nerve damage and a broken right arm in the collision.
But medics in Coventry were unable to treat his injuries without first stabilising his heart, so he immediately underwent a procedure which involved taking a series of photographs of his heart to pinpoint the problem.

Doctors Chop Off 2 Sides Of Man's Head And Freeze It

A UTAH man had a 90 to 95 percent chance of dying after shattering his skull in more than 10 places until a neurosurgeon removed both sides of his head and froze it.
Kyle Johnson’s brain swelled uncontrollably after he fell off a longboard - essentially a surfboard on wheels - while travelling about 60km/h.
Dr Blake Welling of McKay-Dee Hospital in Utah decided to perform the risky surgery.
“We elected to take Kyle to surgery and remove each side of his head,” Dr Welling told
“It’s called a bilateral decompressive craniectomy. It’s something that neurosurgeons do as a last ditch effort.
“Most neurosurgeons do a decompressive craniectomy on one side of the head, where the trauma was.
