Fail

One couple may have unintentionally said ‘I do’ to sharing a bit too much personal information after posing for an inadvertently risqué engagement photo – which has quickly been shared by thousands of people online.  Posted by a Philadelphia-based user on Reddit, the picture shows the unnamed happy twosome kissing over their initials, which are written in rice on a grill at a hibachi restaurant. Unfortunately, those letters – AN and AL – convey a very different message when spelled out in that order, and the addition of the romantic heart in the middle just makes the whole image all the more awkward. The unidentified lovebirds clearly thought they were being romantic with the sweet ‘he hearts her’ note, creatively writing out ‘AN ❤ AL’ in fried rice. But – perhaps because they were reading it upside-down – they don’t seem to have realized the other meaning that those letters have.

Escalator Accident

A tragic escalator accident in China has claimed the life of a woman. The accident occurred at a shopping center in Jingzhou, Hubei province in central China. Security video shows the woman falling through the floor and being pulled in by the turning gears – after she manages to push her child to out of harm's way. Writes BBC News: “Surveillance footage from Sunday's incident shows a metal panel at the top of the escalator giving way, causing the woman and her toddler to stumble. The woman, identified by local media as Xiang Liujuan, 30, was able to push her child to safety as she fell in.” As the shopper steps off the escalator, the metal floor simply swings open. Like a trapdoor, Liujuan is instantly swallowed up. She manages to grab onto the floor's edge, but officials said she became caught in the trappings below, and was pulled down into the mechanism. It took crews nearly four hours to free her body. According to local news reports, the escalator was recently serviced, and a maintenance worker “forgot” to reinstall screws and secure down the metal panel that allows workers access to the escalator. The video feed shows two employees at the top of the elevator. When Liujuan falls in, she manages to push her two-year-old boy to safety, but cannot hang on. Another individual is walking by, but only one employee attempts to grab the woman, and she reaches out with only a one-hand attempt at that. The other women simply watch – one at a distance – before running off. Officials are looking into the accident. Most escalators are equipped with emergency stop buttons both at the top and bottom of the escalator. It appears there is a button in the middle panel between the two sets of moving staircases. If so, no one pushed it. Video of the horrific accident was seen by millions on China’s social media site Sina Weibo. Many expressed outrage over the simple negligence that led to this woman’s sudden and gruesome death. “Why didn’t the staffers stop customers at the entrance to the machine or just turn it off?” one wrote, according to AFP. “The department store is definitely responsible.” “This is heartbreaking!” User Maqi Yaduo wrote. “Why didn't store employees cordon off or shut down the escalator? The department store definitely bears responsibility for this.” “I was appalled when I saw her sink and at the same time felt the greatness of maternal love — the mother wasted no time pushing the child out when it happened,” another said. Adds BBC News: “China has seen several escalator-related accidents in recent years, including an escalator in Shanghai that suddenly reversed direction in 2014, killing 13 people, and a Beijing escalator that malfunctioned in 2011, killing a teenage boy.”

 

Clay Higgins

A police officer in Louisiana is on his way to viral fame after his unusual but also heartwarming “Crime Stoppers” video about a man who burglarized a restaurant popular with local police was posted online, and Lieutenant Higgins says the folks at Stelly’s exemplify Southern hospitality. According to the YouTube video posted by KATC in Louisiana, St. Landry Crime Stoppers are looking for the man who burglarized a business in St. Landry Parish, Louisiana on July 8 and made off with hundreds of dollars. The video starts off like any other dry, monotone police report. But partway through, it takes a unique twist. The lieutenant says: “Look at me son, I’m talking to you. The sheriff likes Stelly’s Restaurant, and so do I. The food here is good, and the folks are friendly.  We’re going to identify you, arrest you, and put you in a small cell. After that, I’m going to have a cheeseburger here with fries and a Coke and leave a nice tip for the waitress. Meanwhile, your next meal will be served through a small hole in a cell door.” Higgins goes on to say they collected DNA evidence from a rock used to smash glass and obtain entry, and he said they also got a “perfect” boot print. However, the officer said he was confident they wouldn’t need to wait on lab results. “Congratulations son, I’m about to make you famous,” he says on the video. “By tomorrow, 100,000 people will have you watched you commit a felony. You will be recognized, and the people that know you don’t really like you anyway, so when it comes down to a choice between you and a $1,000: They’ll take the cash. On behalf of Crime Stoppers, I’m Lt. Higgins.” The unusual video amassed thousands of views on YouTube and Sunday night it made the front page of Reddit.
