Dog uses its own body to protect owner from flames during fire

Neighbors are crediting a dog for saving its owner’s life after a house fire in Port Richmond, Pennsylvania, over the weekend.

"Her dog, Che ... is really protective of her," neighbor Anthony Daly told WPVI. "If you go past her house it’s ‘Bark, bark, bark, bark!’ and that kind of stuff."

WPVI reported that the neighbors woke up to the sounds of the dog barking around 4:30 a.m. Sunday. They immediately saw smoke coming from Andrea Bulat’s home.

When firefighters arrived they found the dog laying on top of Bulat, who was unconscious.

"The dog stayed on her chest the whole time, which prevented her from being burned totally," said neighbor Adele Butler.

Firefighters had to resuscitate Che using oxygen. Che is recovering at Red Paw Relief, which is an non-profit emergency response organization for pets involved with fires or other residential disasters. A spokesperson said they aren’t sure whether the 10-year-old Chow and Golden Retriever mix will survive her injuries.

Bulat is in the hospital in critical condition, with burns covering 50 percent of her body.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Ex-Subway spokesman Jared Fogle's ex-wife sues sandwich chain

Nearly a year after former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for his conviction on child pornography and soliciting minors charges, his ex-wife is suing the sandwich chain, claiming that it knew about Fogle's perversion for longer than it let on.

Katie McLaughlin alleges in a lawsuit filed by her attorneys that Subway investigated three specific instances, dating back to as early as 2004, of Fogle's sexual attraction toward minors but refused to take action.

The suit claims that Subway's senior vice president of marketing was told back in 2004 that Fogle propositioned a young girl for a sex act during a Las Vegas Subway event. After sending a public relations manager to look into the incident, Subway did not attempt to contact the girl or investigate further.

The suit goes on to say that Subway took a greater interest in sales growth than uncovering the truth about Fogle and even used his family's likenesses without their consent.

"I filed this lawsuit because I have questions," McLaughlin told reporters at a press conference.

The lawsuit, filed Monday in Hamilton County Superior Court, seeks unspecified damages, according to the Associated Press.

Last November, Fogle was sentenced to 15 years and eight months in prison after he pleaded guilty to possession or distribution of child pornography and traveling across state lines to have commercial sex with a minor.

Police issue warning about Lego-shaped THC candies after bust

An arrest was made and more than $10,000 worth of drugs and cash were confiscated during a drug-trafficking investigation last week in Canada.

According to the Tosguna Tsuut'ina Nation Police Service Facebook page, officers confiscated nearly three pounds of marijuana, THC syringes, shatter packages, five cellphones, $475 in cash and more than 200 THC Candies shaped like Lego figurines.


“The form of the THC Candies is a specific concern due to the attraction it poses to children and adults alike,” the Facebook post said.

According to CTV News Calgary, 39-year-old Derrick Fullerton was arrested and charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking. Fullerton has been banned from accessing the Tsuut’ina Nation by band leaders.

Hydrogen sulfide inhalation from car battery killed mother, daughter, medical examiner says

Four months after first responders discovered a woman and her daughter dead inside an SUV on the turnpike in Osceola County, Florida, medical examiners say they have answers about how the two died.

Dr. Gary Utz said a car battery leaked toxic hydrogen sulfide into the cabin of the SUV, where Latifa Lincoln, 46, and her 3-year-old daughter, Maksmilla, assumed they were safe.

"I don't have another reason for either of them to be dead," Utz said, calling the case "unprecedented."

The substance that hydrogen sulfide becomes in the body was nowhere to be found in the victims' blood, but Utz said a level of the substance was found in their urine.

The malfunctioning battery might have been nothing more than a nuisance, except that in the Porsche Cayenne, the battery isn't under the hood; it's under the driver's seat.

"Talking to the owners and the mechanics we have here, none of them have ever heard of anything like this in regard to a battery," said Ron Telleysh, manager of Auto Express Finance.

Telleysh said Auto Express sold the SUV to Lincoln.

"Nothing like this you ever see, ever," Telleysh said.

He said the car had a clean record and still had the battery with which it was sold.  

He said his whole staff was saddened to learn that the woman and her daughter whom they had gotten to know were dead.

"I hope there are people out there that will take this seriously and find out what happened in this situation," Telleysh said.

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration now has the battery from the SUV for testing.

Medical examiners say the case is so rare that drivers should not be worried about the batteries in their cars.

Man captures video of enormous spider carrying away mouse in home

Jason Womal said he was getting ready to go to work when his neighbor asked him, "You want to see something cool?"

The Coppabella, Australia, man enthusiastically said yes and ended up recording video of an enormous huntsman spider carrying away an even bigger mouse in the house next door.

The Guardian reported that Womal posted the creepy, astonishing video on Facebook Saturday. It has over 12 million views.

Graham Millage, the manager of the Australian Museum’s archaeology collection, told The Guardian the video was a first for him.

"This is the first time I’ve seen one catch a mouse, but I have seen huntsmen catch geckos," Millage said. "I’ve seen a redback spider catch a snake in its web, I’ve seen a golden orb spiders catch birds."

Just a few photos of the huntsman and the mouse.Posted by Jason Womal on Saturday, October 22, 2016

Helen Smith, an arachnid expert at the museum, showed some skepticism about the video.

"I would be very surprised if a huntsman would attack a mouse and even if it did, that the venom would be sufficient to kill it fast enough for the spider to still have hold of it," she told the Guardian. "I am a also suspicious because the mouse’s tail looks quite stiff -- as though it has been dead some time."

Although some of us would pack our bags and move far away, Womal said he's made friends with the spider.

"OK guys so just letting you all know that the spider is fine," Womal said in an update. "We have named him Hermie, we have adopted him and he is now running his own extermination business out of our town Coppabella. Oh and he is now paying rent. Lol."

If you can bear it, watch the video below:

New details in armed robbery of NBA TV’s Kristen Ledlow

Kristen Ledlow, the host of “NBA Inside Stuff” and a reporter for NBA TV, was robbed at gunpoint and carjacked Saturday afternoon in Midtown, Atlanta police said.

Officers were dispatched to the 1900 block of Monroe Drive just before 3:20 p.m., Atlanta police Officer Kim Jones said Monday.

Ledlow told police a group of men got out of a silver sedan and approached her shortly after she pulled into her apartment complex.

“One of the male suspects pointed a gun at the victim and took her vehicle,” a red 2016 Corvette, Jones said. Using the car’s tracking device, police located the Corvette in southwest Atlanta about 25 minutes later, police said.

Ledlow wrote about the experience on social media.

“Yesterday, I was robbed at gunpoint by three men who knew who I was, where I lived, and were waiting for me when I got home,” Ledlow said Sunday in an Instagram post. “They stole my car, my purse, my wallet, my phone and worst of all, my sense of security.”

Ledlow came to Atlanta in 2013 as a radio host on 92.9/The Game. She left for NBA TV in 2014 and co-hosts “NBA Inside Stuff” with Grant Hill.

No one has been arrested in connection with the armed robbery and carjacking. Investigators have contacted the apartment’s management office for video footage.

“While I will be taking a social media hiatus,” Ledlow said in the Instagram post, “I will not become a slave to fear.”

Dog rescued after family leaves him waiting in pile of trash

Boo sat on the blue, floral print mattress for days waiting for his family to return.

But the family didn't come back. Instead, Mike Diesel spent hours for two days getting the pit bull, left behind with the family’s trash, to trust him.

Diesel, the founder of Detroit Youth and Dog Rescue, eventually won out with the help of some sausage biscuits.

“Boo has warmed up to me in an amazing way already and truly shows and proves the love of the pit bull and trust they have in humans,” Diesel told Inside Edition.

Diesel was able to take Boo to the vet where he was diagnosed with heartworms. He is undergoing treatment and will be adoptable when he is healthy.

The rescue group does not have a shelter facility but relies on volunteers to foster the animals until they are adopted, according to The Daily Dot. They have rescued about 75 dogs since 2014.

Nearly complete mastodon skeleton found in Michigan

Teacher Seth Colling made the discovery of his life while walking in a ditch looking for fish with his students two years ago at the Fowler Center for Outdoor Learning.

There was a bone sticking out of the water. It looked interesting. Turns out it was a tibia of a mastodon, which with further excavations this month was determined to be the most complete remnants of the ice-age mammal found in decades in Michigan.

“This is really a dream come true for me,” Colling said. “When I was a kid I wanted to be a paleontologist and have always been on the lookout for stuff. So this is a find of a lifetime for me.”

Using dental wear to determine, officials believe the mastodon was about 30 years old at the time of its death.

It is considered to have lived about 11,000 to 13,000 years ago. Radiocarbon dating will more accurately date the bones to within a century.

Early study shows that the mastodon carcass was harvested by primitive hunters or scavengers. They likely stored the animal’s meat at the bottom of a pond that no longer exists.

More than 75 bones, or about 70 percent of the animal, were found preserved in fine-grain pond sediment. They will be furthered studied at the University of Michigan Museum of Paleontology.

About 300 mastodons have been found in Michigan, but only about 10 are as intact.

“I think the last time a mastodon this complete was found in Michigan was in the 1940s,” Daniel Fisher, director of the museum and leader of the dig, said in a release. “As I recall, she was about 80 percent complete."

Infants should sleep in parents' room for at least 6 months, report says

Infants should sleep in the same room but not the same bed as their parents for at least the first six months of their lives, a new report from the American Academy of Pediatrics says.

>> Read more trending stories  

 The report recommends that babies sleep on a separate surface in parents' rooms, such as a crib or bassinet, but never on a couch, armchair or soft surface for up to their first birthday.

Such soft surfaces can lead to nasal obstruction and asphyxia in infants.

"Parents should never place the baby on a sofa, couch, or cushioned chair, either alone or sleeping with another person," Rachel Moon, lead author of the report, said in a statement. "We know that these surfaces are extremely hazardous."

And for tired parents feeding infants, if "there's even the slightest possibility that you may fall asleep, feed your baby on your bed, rather than a sofa or cushioned chair," said Dr. Lori Feldman-Winter co-author of the report.

The guidelines serve as tips to decrease the risk of sleep-related deaths, including sudden infant death syndrome, or SIDS. Researchers say minimizing risk factors is the best way to keep babies safe and decrease the number of sleep-related deaths in infants, which currently amounts to nearly 3,500 deaths per year in the United States.   

"The whole phenomenon of SIDS implies that we don't know 100 percent what is responsible for the death, but we have theories," Feldman-Winter said.

The report cites evidence that shows parents who share their room with their infant can reduce the risk of SIDS by as much as 50 percent.

"Babies should share that sleep environment for up to one year, because there is a slight risk of SIDS that persists," Feldman-Winter said. "A baby that is within reach of their mother may have more comfort or physical stimulation from being in an environment with another person."

Other recommendations in the report include placing a sleeping infant on his or her back on a firm sleep surface with a tight-fitting sheet and avoiding the use of soft bedding, including crib bumpers, blankets, pillows and soft toys.

Feldman-Winter said a bare crib or space is best.

"There should be no pillows, sheets, blankets or other items that could obstruct the infant's breathing or cause overheating," she said.

Feldman-Winter and Moon said that even with products advertising safer sleeping environments for children, small changes can make a big impact.

"We know that we can keep a baby safer without spending a lot of money on home-monitoring gadgets but through simple precautionary measures," Moon said.
