French Woman Stuck in Bathroom for Three Weeks

French firefighters freed a 69-year-old woman who spent three weeks trapped in her bathroom and whose pleas for help by tapping on pipes were ignored by neighbours, police said on Tuesday.
The woman emerged in a "very weakened" state when rescue workers, alerted by neighbours who were worried because they had not seen her for some time, broke into her home on Friday in the Paris suburb of Epinay-sous-Senart to extricate her.

She had got stuck after the bathroom door lock broke.

The woman, who is recuperating in hospital, survived by drinking warm water from the bathroom tap and at night-time tried to call for help by tapping on piping, police said.

Woman Goes In Hospital For Minor Procedure Comes Out With Both Legs Amputated

A simple surgery has turned into a living nightmare for a Brooklyn mom.
She was supposed to be in and out of the hospital on the same day. Instead, both her legs had to be amputated because of an alleged medical mishap and now she wants justice.
“It’s hard. Knowing before this happened, I was normal. I didn’t have anything — but, now, I won’t be able to walk unless I have prostheses,” Stacy Galette told CBS 2’s Pablo Guzman.
Galette went to Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola one year ago for what she said was supposed to be a minor gynecological procedure. However, something went wrong and both of her legs were amputated.
Galette said she’s been left with unimaginable anger.
“Knowing that I’m not the same person that I used to be. I’m not walking,” Galette said.
Mother and 10-year-old daughter are still close, in spite of everything. Galette claims that during surgery at Winthrop Hospital, her intestine was punctured, which ultimately led to gangrene and the amputation of both legs below the knees. On Thursday she and her lawyer filed suit against the hospital.
“It’s horrifying. She will have to use prostheses for the rest of her life, for a double below the knee amputation — because of medical malpractice!” attorney Sanford Rubinstein said.
Over the phone, a spokesman for the hospital told Guzman: “As a matter of policy, we don’t comment on pending litigation.”

Devil Attacks School

Panic broke out at the Moruga Composite School yesterday as 17 female students fell mysteriously ill and began rolling on the ground, hissing and blabbering in a strange tongue, after suffering bouts of nausea and headaches. Two of the students reportedly tried to throw themselves off a railing and had to be physically restrained, triggering fears of a possible demon attack. The drama started during the lunch hour in the Form One block and quickly spread to other areas. Form Five student Kern Mollineau, who attends the Lighthouse Tabernacle Church, said he got worried when the girls’ eyes began rolling up in their heads and they began beating up on the ground.
With the assistance of several other students and teachers, the pupils were taken to the multi-purpose hall where some of them fell into a semi-conscious state. Mollineau recalled: “One girl was blabbering as if in a strange language. I could not understand what she was saying. “It was sounding like ‘shebbaberbebeb shhhhee.’ The girls were unusually strong. We had to hold them down so that they will not hurt themselves. “The teachers were right there. I get a kick in my face when one of the girls started beating up on the floor. Many of them had bruises.”

Self-Cloning Lizard Discovered On Dinner Plate

A new species of lizard was discovered in Vietnam - after being spotted on a dinner menu.

The previously undiscovered variety of lizard - Leiolepis ngovantrii - appears to be all-female and able to reproduce itself by cloning.
It was found after a Vietnamese reptile scientist came across tanks full of the similar looking reptiles at small diners in rural villages in Ba Ria-Vung Tau province.
Noticing they all appeared to be female, Ngo Van Tri called his friend; Californian herpetologist Dr. Lee Grismer, who immediately flew out to join the researcher.
Ngo organised for a local restaurant owner to set aside some of the creatures for study, but this plan didn't work out.
Grismer explained: "Unfortunately, the owner wound up getting drunk, and grilled them all up for his patrons. So when we got there, there was nothing left."

Luckily, they recruited some local children and other restaurateurs, who soon managed to catch them some 60 of the lizards for study - which was enough for them to conduct research into the species.
Grismer added: "It's an entirely new lineage of life that was being eaten and sold in restaurants for food. But it's something that scientists have missed for hundreds of years."
He also tried eating one, and said it's not likely they'll be making their way to western menus anytime soon.

Drunk woman with secret stash of alcohol' forces plane to divert after attacking cabin crew

A woman caused panic in a plane full of holidaymakers after she attacked cabin crew at 35,000ft over the Atlantic.
The 45-year-old British passenger had allegedly been drinking from a secret stash of alcohol on the Thomson Airways flight from Manchester to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic on Friday.
After shouting and lashing out at staff, she had to be handcuffed to her seat - and the Boeing 767-300 was diverted to Bermuda, where police removed her.

Sinkholes, HAARP, Weather Modification

Is the earth sinking in on itself? 
While it appears that our economy is in a deflationary sinkhole, numerous sinkholes are being reported throughout the world. Wiki says, “A sinkhole, also known as asinkshake holeswallow holeswalletdoline or cenote, is a natural depression or hole in the earth’s surface caused by karst processes – the chemical dissolution of carbonate rocks.”
A natural depression? Many of the recent sinkholes occurring around the world are not in an area where there are carbonate rocks, so what’s up? Or should we ask, what’s going down?
Two new sinkholes were reported today.
HARRIMAN, Tenn. (WVLT) — State transportation officials are warning drivers to avoid a sinkhole on Interstate 40 westbound in Roane County.   TDOT says maintenance crews discovered the sinkhole Monday morning in the right-hand lane at mile marker 344.5, just past the Harriman exit.http://www.volunteertv.com/news/headlines/99242529.html?ref=529
A large sinkhole caused by heavy rains last week has closed down U.S. 51 north of Janesville, and officials don’t know when the road will reopen.  The state traffic operations center said the highway was shut down as of 10:14 a.m. Monday.  Traffic is blocked in both directions, from U.S. 14, near where the sinkhole formed, north about seven miles to County M, the state Department of Transportation said.http://host.madison.com/ct/news/local/article_7da125b0-98cd-11df-beb8-001cc4c03286.html
On July 23rd, a man was rescued from a sinkhole in Milwaukee, asking “What happened?” after his Cadillac Escalade plummeted into the a chasm that opened up during a deluge. http://www.aolnews.com/nation/article/milwaukee-sinkhole-swallows-driver-in-suv/19566080
