As more twisted details of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crash unfold, the part that rocks me to my very core are the most human moments of the lost 298 passengers, of whom 80 were children.
The story of one of them hits very close to home for me as a mom: A mother in Amsterdam, Samira Calehr, has to live knowing that her little boy perished on that flight ... and that in his last hours, he knew that something was going to happen to him. It's enough to send chills down anyone's spine ...
On Sunday, 4-year-old Marterrance Albury of Tampa, Florida was run over and killed by a green or black SUV at around 9:45 p.m. A witness to the accident told police that the boy appeared to have fallen out of or been thrown out of the SUV that ran him over, but newly released surveillance video appears to show Marterrance walking on the side of the road before walking into traffic. The SUV that hit him never stopped and police continue trying to find the driver.
So why was a 4-year-old walking on the street all by himself so late at night? His mother, 36-year-old Johntea Williams, had left Marterrance in the care of his 17-year-old brother while she went out with a friend. When she came home at 4 a.m. and officers told her what happened to Marterrance, Williams became so distressed she had to be taken into custody.
Fox News' Fox & Friends aired some kind of disgustingness today where hosts acted shocked that emergency responders are "forced" to help Spanish-speakers in life and death situations even if it is suspected that they are undocumented immigrants. Fox News host Steve Doocy opened his offensive pie hole and said, "They stumbled across the border illegally and now they need your help!?" Are you FREAKIN' kidding me?
You know what I find shocking? That so-called educated hosts would entertain the idea that the right choice in a life and death situation for a HUMAN BEING would be to let the person die because it is more cost effective. Ugh, it's so disgusting that these talking heads can sit there and spew this nonsense and yes, I've got a clip of this vileness to share with you.
There is nothing more horrible than the death of a child and nothing more shocking than to open the coffin to find that she's still alive. A viral video captures the scene as a 3-year-old girl in Zamboanga del Sur in the Philippines was lifted from her coffin after being pronounced dead the day before.
A relative had opened the coffin to look at the girl's remains and noticed her head move. She had been declared dead in the hospital the day before after suffering from a high fever, according to news reports. Can you imagine? One minute you've suffered the greatest loss imaginable and then next you're living a miracle?Continue Reading >
A botched home birth lead to the death of a baby born to a 16-year-old North Carolina mom. The tiny body was recently discovered dead and buried in the teen's backyard. Although the new mother is unnamed in reports due to her age, she is a primary suspect along with the baby's 18-year-old father.
Police received a tip regarding the crime from an unknown source before they searched the teen's backyard for the body. It wasn't until recently that the real cause of death was discovered and it's heartbreaking...
What happened to 16-year-old Mason Zisette, a high school junior from Manhattan Beach, California, while he was on a chartered double decker tour bus with about 40 other teens is so sad and ended with him paying the ultimate price. On Thursday night, Zisette was on the top open-air level of a rented double decker bus celebrating another teen's birthday. Another teen that was on the bus says Zisette may have been dancing on a seat cushion and was not facing forward when he was struck by a freeway overpass sign. He was immediately rushed to a local hospital where he died two days later.
This is no doubt some kind of freak accident that no one would anticipate and I certainly don't mean to point fingers at people I know did not intend for anyone to get hurt, but as a parent I can not help but ask: Where were the chaperones?
You are not going to believe what happened to Hally Yust, a 9-year-old girl from Spring Hill, Kansas. This beautiful little girl died on Wednesday from an extremely rare brain-eating amoeba. What?!
She was taken to the hospital because she had meningitis-like symptoms and that's where they found out that what she really had was an amoeba infection called, Naegleria fowleri. How did she get it? Doing something that lots of kids and their families do during the warmer months.
A Brooklyn woman with a history of psychological problems shocked cops with a gruesome surprise. Chava Stirn had reportedly had been living with her 61-year-old mother, Susie Rosenthal in their Borough Park home. The problem with this scenario is that her mom had been DEAD for OVER a year.
Talk about something straight out of a movie!
A California deputy who shot and killed a 13-year-old boy who was carrying a pellet gun won't be facing any charges. A Sonoma County district attorney called Andy Lopez' death a tragedy, but that Erik Gelhaus was not a criminal - even though he shot him SEVEN times! We're right there with the family when they said that it feels like Andy has been killed all over again. When will our youth get the justice they deserve?
A family outing turned into every parent's worst nightmare when 2-year-old Ruhshona Kurbonova drowned in Prospect Park lake in Brooklyn Saturday after wandering off with a 4-year-old relative. The saddest part of this story though? It's something that can happen to any of us ...
