A Guatemalan man arrives in America in an airplane landing gear
The 26-year-old illegal immigrant, whose name has not been released, made a 2.5-hour flight from Guatemala to Miami in the plane's landing gear compartment. The Boeing 737-800 landed in the United States on Saturday, November 27th. The border guards detained the man right at the airport when he literally fell onto the asphalt. According to eyewitnesses, he not only survived, but also did not receive any injuries, which is a real miracle. The traveler was taken to the hospital for examination.
The detainee made his way on board the American Airlines liner during the preparation of its departure on the runway. The man hid in the chassis compartment and went unnoticed. The video, taken at the airport, shows the intruder standing next to two employees in vests, and then sits on the ground due to dizziness. Now the migration service will take over his case.
Since 1947, 129 people tried to fly in the landing gear compartment or other parts of the aircraft, of which 100 died from their injuries. In 2014, the guy survived a 5-hour flight from California to Hawaii. In August 2021, several people tried to cling to the landing gear of an aircraft at the Kabul airport in order to leave Afghanistan. On the same day, the body of a man was found in the counter of a US military transport aircraft.
18-year-old boy killed his mother on Thanksgiving
November 25, Thanksgiving Day, 18-year-old Varian Alexander Hibbert stabbed his mother to death. The body of 42-year-old Marcia Chance was found by police at her home in Lawrenceville, Gwinnett County, Georgia. They arrived at a domestic violence call and apprehended a suspect. It is known that mother and son lived together. Now the young man is accused of aggravated assault, possession of a knife in the commission of a serious crime and murder.
He is currently in the Gwinnett County Detention Center with no bail available. The motives for the crime are still unknown. The 18-year-old is reportedly not the first to have problems with the law. In August, he was arrested for damaging other people's property and obstructing law enforcement officials through threats and violence. Two weeks later, Varian was arrested again on the same charges.
A neighbor of the family said that she was shocked by what had happened. She could not even imagine that a teenager could do this to his mother and even on Thanksgiving Day. According to another neighbor, Henrietta Robinson, she saw how the son of the murdered woman was talking to himself in the yard, and thought that he was trying to get into her house. & # 34; I never thought it could come to this. This is really unsettling, & # 34; – added the woman.
Texas man shot and killed his daughter while hunting
During the hunt in the city of Gaullsville, Texas, a man accidentally shot his 11-year-old daughter with a gun. Daisy Grace Lynn George was a 6th grade student and was with her father on Saturday, November 27th. One of the bullets fired from a high power rifle hit the child. The emergency service received a call about a hunting accident at 17:15 local time.
The doctors who arrived at the scene found the girl with life-threatening injuries. For her hospitalization, it was decided to call a helicopter, but because of bad weather, he was unable to take the victim to the hospital. Daisy had to be transported by an ambulance. Despite all the efforts made to save her, it was not possible to save the life of the wounded. The police are investigating the incident. County Sheriff Brandon Fletcher has already commented on what happened:
& # 34; Every time such a young man dies, it is a tragedy for everyone involved. Our thoughts and prayers with the family and friends of the one who died during this difficult time. & # 34;
An innocent American who served 42 years was collected 1.5 million dollars
November 23, 62-year-old Kevin Strickland released from prison in Missouri after a judge found the evidence in his case erroneous, and the prisoner himself was innocent. The man was sentenced to life in prison for triple murder in 1979 when he was only 18 years old. In June 2021, Jackson County Attorney Jean Peters Baker called on the court to reconsider Strickland's case due to the failure of the evidence of his guilt.
Kevin spent 42 years in prison, the longest unfairly convicted time in the state's history. But according to local laws, he was not entitled to compensation. It is paid to those who were acquitted by DNA analysis, and not by witness testimony, as in the case of Strickland. Then his lawyer opened a collection of donations to help the man after his release. 27 thousand people responded to her call. In a short time on the Internet, thanks to caring people, it was possible to raise $ 1.5 million, which will go to Kevin's household expenses.
Booster dose vaccination in the USA will become mandatory
In the United States, requirements are tightening in connection with the discovery of a new strain of coronavirus called Omicron. The CDC has released a new COVID-19 vaccine recommendation that all adults in the United States must receive a booster dose.
& # 34; Booster dose guidelines for people over 18 years old. Every adult should be revaccinated against coronavirus six months after the second Moderna and Pfizer vaccination or 2 months after Johnson & amp; Johnson, & # 34; – indicated on the regulator's website.
Data obtained from South Africa, where a new strain of COVID-19 was found, suggests that Omicron has an increased ability to be transmitted from person to person. While scientists from around the world are studying the effectiveness of current vaccines to protect against this variant of the coronavirus, they are calling for adherence to existing prevention strategies, which include wearing a mask, using antiseptics and maintaining social distancing.
