Lion Kills Tourist Through Car Window: ... June 2, 2015.
A 22 year old American tourist has suffered a gruesome death after a lioness lunged at her through the open window of her car.
Despite numerous signs warning people driving through the Lion Safari Park to "KEEP WINDOWS CLOSED AT ALL TIMES" people are taking risks to get better photos and videos.
This is the third such attack in the park this year. An Australian was horribly mauled here just 4 months ago.Uploaded June 2, 2015 by ABC News.
32 Boys Die in African Initiation Rites. ... July 22, 2015.
32 boys have died so far this year in South Africa from botched circumcisions during the annual initiation season.
Almost 200 more are in hospitals suffering from dehydration, infections, genital mutilations, and beatings. These "rites of passage into adulthood" usually take place after bush retreats of 2-4 weeks in tests of physical endurance. A spokesman said "This is one of the important rituals within our society".
A commission last year found over 4,000 boys have died and 500,000 been hospitalized after attending initiation schools from 2008-2013... most died from infections after circumcision.Uploaded May 18, 2013 by Al Jazeera English:
Wrong Engine Shut Down in Crash. ... July 2, 2015.
Investigations into the crash of a jet in Taiwan in February that killed 43 people (out of 58 passengers and crew) reveal pilot error.
Voice recordings tell us the pilot accidentally shut down the correctly working left engine after the right engine "flamed-out" during takeoff.

Champion Surfer Survives Shark Attack: ... July 19, 2015.
Australia's 3-time world surfing champion Mick Fanning has had a miraculous escape from an attacking shark during a surfing competition at South Africa's Jeffreys Bay.
The badly shaken surfer quickly scrambled out the water onto a rescuing jet ski, later saying... "It just kept coming at my board and I was kicking and screaming... I just saw fins. I didn't see any teeth. I was waiting for the teeth to come at me... I punched it in the back. I saw the whole thing thrashing round but I was getting dragged under by my leg rope... I'm happy to not compete ever again."Uploaded July 19, 2015 by FOX Sports:
Escort Kills Suspected Serial Killer: ... July 27, 2015.
A West Virginia escort, who advertises online, got more than she bargained for when a new client came calling.
The man pulled out a gun and started choking her. In the ensuing scuffle the woman managed to grab his gun and shoot her attacker dead.
Police were amazed when they searched the 45 year-old deceased's car to find axes, machetes, knives, a sledgehammer, plastic garbage bags, bleach, a shovel, bullet proof vests, and 4 sets of hand cuffs.
Police believe he may have been responsible for up to 9 serial killings across 3 states (Nevada, Oregon, and Illinois). All women who were murdered or disappeared were escorts who often advertised online. Several dismembered bodies have been found near Las Vegas where the man once lived.Uploaded July 27, 2015 by CNN:
DNA Brings Killer to Justice After 35 Years: ... July 30, 2015.
A 68 year-old Australian man has been arrested over a series of killings and bombings carried out 30-35 years ago.
The attacks were carried out in revenge over a bitter marital split and child custody dispute.
The suspect stands accused of 4 murders; shooting his sleeping brother-in-law dead; shooting dead a judge when he answered his front door bell; killing another judge's wife with a bomb left at her front door; and bombing a Jehovah's Witness hall (where his wife and sister-in-law worshipped) killing the minister and injuring 57 others. Other bombings blew apart two judges houses and the Family Law Courts.
Modern-day DNA tests on a drop of old blood from a break-in at the Jehovah's Witness Hall prior to the blast have proven his presence at the crime scene.Uploaded on July 30, 2015 by 7NEWS:
