    Community support is growing for the Deptford families of two boaters who have been missing since their boat capsized last weekend on the Delaware River. Brian Palangi, 26, and Joseph McLaughlin, 24, were out on a boat with a friend when it capsized in West Deptford Saturday. The friend was rescued by bystanders, but McLaughlin and Palangi's bodies had yet to be recovered as of Wednesday. Two GoFundMe pages were launched to help their families. "Joey is somebody who loves to ride anything with a motor, squeeze every drop out of life, and most of all, he’s somebody who loves nothing more than his Mother and Father," Nicole Rosenzweig writes on McLaughlin's campaign.  "Family is something he takes very serious; his brother and sister share an unconditional love for their brother that only comes from the kind of relationship you develop through years of loving memories, hardships, and living with someone for their entire life.

    A mother from Oak Park, California, whose abusive ex-boyfriend was arrested for abducting her at gun point has opened up about the trauma she suffered at being kidnapped by him a second time just months later after he was freed from jail.    Giselle Shuken, 36, revealed how she was locked in the trunk of a car and beaten by her own boyfriend when he became paranoid she would cheat - only for the 'monster' to get out of jail four months later and do it again. The mom-of-two endured a horrific 12-hour ordeal at the hands of her 'jealous' boyfriend of three months, David Crawford, 36, in April 2020, after he misinterpreted messages he saw on her phone. After being left in the trunk in 100 degree heat for two hours, the 36-year-old said she was then taken into her own home and beaten, leaving her fearing she'd never see her two young daughters again. Despite suffering a catalogue of injuries - including a broken jaw - she says her now ex ignored her pleas for medical attention and didn't...
    As president of a San Mateo County school board, Maybelle Manio had the privilege of delivering some lighthearted remarks at her son Jake Cruz’s 8th grade graduation. “Today is a celebration. Today is an accomplishment,” she said during the ceremony earlier this year. “Today is a good day to ask for some money.” The crowd laughed. When Manio returned home, she found a white piece of paper labeled “Eviction Notice” tacked to her door. She had 15 days to leave her Daly City apartment. Manio, who had recently started a new career in commercial real estate, an industry devastated by the pandemic, recognized the irony of what she had told the audience. Suddenly, she was staring at her own financial abyss. While the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic devastated low-income families, middle-class households were not immune. Manio was one of many who turned to the government and friends and family for assistance for the first time in their lives, seeking help wherever she could. Samaritan House, a San Mateo charity offering food, rental assistance and counseling services, saw food distribution lines...

    CNN’s Brian Stelter called out Fox News over the contradictory vaccine commentary the network aired from Neil Cavuto and Lisa Boothe. Cavuto returned to the Fox airwaves over the weekend for the first time since his recent Covid scare, and he implored MediaBuzz watchers to put politics aside, get inoculated against Covid, and help protect immunocompromised people like him around the country. Hours earlier, however, Boothe appeared on Unfiltered with Dan Bongino, where she boasted about being unvaccinated and said she wouldn’t get the shot as an act of political defiance against President Joe Biden. Stelter described Cavuto as “a man on an island” Sunday night as he noted that Cavuto’s commentary diverged from his Fox colleagues for years on vaccines and other topics. On Monday, Stelter kept this thought going on New Day as he spoke of how Cavuto has objected to the “hostile work environment” his colleagues created with their “nonsense” railing against “tyrannical vaccine mandates.” “It’s so striking how hostile this is,” Stelter said. “Thank goodness we work in a place without the crazy daily arguments about...
    Vice President Kamala Harris was delivering remarks in New York City's Bronx borough on Friday when she was interrupted by an impassioned protester critical of the city's aging infrastructure. A number of high-profile New York Democrats were in attendance, including Mayor Bill De Blasio, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Governor Kathy Hochul.  She was discussing President Joe Biden's Build Back Better agenda and its impact on climate change when the heckler, 23-year-old Jose Vega, pointed out that earlier action could have possibly mitigated the devastating effects of flash floods the city saw during Hurricane Ida.   He confirmed his identity to DailyMail.com, and said: 'People aren’t drowning because of global warming in Queens. They are drowning because of illegal apartments in Queens.'   Vega is a South Bronx resident and works for the Diane Sare for Senate campaign. Sare is an Independent candidate challenging Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer for his seat in the upcoming 2022 election. In September, flood waters surging into basement apartments killed 11 people throughout New York City. At least 13 people died in the city overall. Local officials had...

    JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — Eleven students drowned and 10 others were rescued during a school outing for a river cleanup in Indonesia’s West Java Province, officials said Saturday. Local officials said 150 students from an Islamic junior high school were participating in the cleanup Friday along the banks of the Cileueur river bank when 21 of them slipped into the water. “The weather was good and there was no flash flood,” said Deden Ridwansyah, chief of the Bandung Search and Rescue Office. “Those children who drowned were holding each others’ hands. One of them slipped and the others followed,” Ridwansyah said. Nearby residents and a rescue team managed to save 10 of the students, who were sent to a nearby hospital. Rescuers used big orange inflatable rafts to search for victims and all students were accounted for when the search ended Friday night. The students apparently were not wearing flotation devices. Some reports said they were trying to cross the river, which is popular for rafting and inner tubing, when they fell in. Rains cause...
    The red flags came early. Selling offshore leases for oil drilling in the middle of shipping lanes seemed reckless. Building a complex of oil platforms just off the Orange County coast was an invitation to disaster. But the green light was given, and in the late 1970s, Shell Oil Co. proceeded, eventually raising three towering edifices in the middle of a nautical highway leading to two of the busiest ports in the world. Maritime officials tried to stop construction of the platforms, according to documents reviewed by The Times. They raised warnings of possible disaster in the event that a ship collided with one of them and ignited the oil and hydrocarbons coursing through a circuit of wells and pipes. The president of the Pacific Merchant Shipping Assn. called Shell Oil Co.’s plan an “an unacceptable hazard to navigation.” “They want to put these platforms on the front porch of the busiest port in the West,” Philip Steinberg said at a public hearing. “We’d end up with a veritable minefield of obstacles. It invites a catastrophe. ... It only...
    A 14-YEAR-OLD girl drowned under a pool cover at the end of swim practice after her teammates and coach failed to notice she was missing.

At that point, Nabila and a few of her fellow swimmers then grabbed a second cover and swam it over to the deep end - leaving...

Aranda was a central figure in Breitbart’s Border and Cartel Chronicles team. He was in Chiapas investigating the spread of the Cartel Jalisco New Generation (CJNG) and the group’s local affiliate, a self-defense organization calling themselves “Los Machetes.” Despite denials from Mexico City, the Machetes use advanced paramilitary tactics and explosives to wage a fierce turf war against allies of the Sinaloa Cartel — key facts revealed by Aranda’s investigative reporting at Breitbart.

    A 14 year-old girl drowned under pool covers at the end of swim practice after her teammates and coach failed to notice she was missing, with her family now filing a $70 million wrongful death lawsuit. Nabila Maazouz's grief-stricken mom Patty and dad Mostafa filed the suit last Tuesday in Washington County Circuit Court, Oregon, two years after the teenager's untimely passing. It names the city of Hillsboro, the Hillsboro School District, and Universal Filtration Inc. - the manufacturer of the cover that entombed the youth - and Portland pool goods seller The Pool and Spa House as defendants, and argues that Nabila's death was the direct result of their collective negligence.

    Military commanders who oversaw a training exercise in which nine service members died were burnt out by the pandemic, and overwhelmed by the prospect of war with Iran and Donald Trump's militarization of the southern border, according to a new report. Eight Marines and one sailor, aged 18-23, died on July 30, 2020, when their amphibious vehicle sank off the coast of California. The armored ship-to-shore transport craft took on water and sank off the coast of San Clemente Island, while returning to the USS Somerset.  On Wednesday the results of two investigations into the accident - one from the Marines, one from the Navy - were published. While not excusing failures in leadership, they found that the commanders were stressed out and struggling to deal with many competing demands.   An amphibious vehicle like the one pictured sank in July 2020, killing eight Marines and one sailor. There are about 800 AAV's in the Marine inventory that can carry up to 21 people and each weighs 26 tons The amphibious vehicle was returning to the USS Somerset (pictured) when it...

Superior Court Judge Marilyn C. Clark, sitting in Paterson, approved the terms of a plea deal under which Tonya Fea, 50, must complete 100 days of community service following her release. She also can no longer own a dog, under agreement with the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

    Lawmakers were drowned out by protesters outside the U.S. Capitol Building on Wednesday as they announced a bill that would ban critical race theory in federally funded schools. Virginia Republican Rep. Bob Good introduced the Defending Students’ Civil Rights Act of 2021, which would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 “to make using critical race theory or critical race pedagogy in any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance a violation of such Act, and for other purposes.” The text of the bill was not immediately available. 'TOXIC': AHEAD OF BRITNEY SPEARS HEARING, SENATORS EXAMINE CONSERVATORSHIPS Good argued critical race theory has “infiltrated so many areas of our nation,” including “the education system.” “If you oppose it, they call you a racist,” Good said. “On the other hand, they argue CRT does not even exist and it's a made-up issue.” Protesters drowned out Republican lawmakers — including Good and Reps. Mary Miller of Illinois, Andy Harris of Maryland, and Dan Bishop of North Carolina — chanting “shame” and “black lives matter.” One asked...
    The family of a young girl who died after being sucked into an irrigation pipe inside a man-made pond in Washington have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against a winery operating in the area.  Danika Ross, 10, drowned inside the pipe in July at the pond in Quincy, which the family say is on property owned by Cave B Estate Winery. According to the suit, Danika was swimming in the man-made pond with her siblings when she was sucked into the irrigation pipe, that her parents' described as 'not grated' and 'larger than necessary.'  After being sucked in, Danika was 'thrust down into a 90-degree bend in the pipe' before her body was 'transported nearly 70 feet up the hill via the mechanical pump mechanism,' the complaint alleges, referring to Danika's death as 'painful, gruesome, terrifying, and senseless.'   The Grant County Coroner's office concluded that Danika died of asphyxiation from drowning.  Two of Danika's sibling's witnessed the incident and tried to help, but could not fight the suction. The suit claims that the Cave B website advertises swimming in the lake,...
                      by Debra Heine  Former Detroit police chief James Craig, 65, tried to hold a press conference in a state park Tuesday to announce his candidacy for the governor of Michigan, but had to cut it short when a mob of aggressive left-wing agitators prevented him from speaking. As soon as he reached the podium at Belle Isle Park to make his announcement, the political newcomer was swarmed by dozens of leftists who blasted air horns, raised their fists, flipped the bird, and screamed “hey hey, ho ho, James Craig has got to go!” Agitators from Detroit Will Breathe (DWB) held signs that read “Racist Ass Republican Craig,” “James Craig Gives Nazis guided tours,” and “Defund DPD (Detroit Police Dept.). As the mob of mostly white activists pressed in on the candidate from all sides, his staff formed a human shield around him, and local media reporters thrust their microphones up to his face so he could be heard above the din. But still, it was impossible to hear the candidate speak. One...

    Harrowing bodycam footage capture the moment a NYPD officer tried unsuccessfully to dive into a flooded apartment to rescue a family who drowned inside as Ida brought record rainfall to New York.    The gut-wrenching video shows the policeman standing in dirty water nearly reaching his shoulders in the staircase leading to the door of the family's basement apartment, with a light on overhead.  He is surrounded by filthy brown water that is so deep the door to the family's apartment is completely submerged beneath it, while an unseen colleague films on their bodcycam.  Heartbreakingly, plush children's toys float past as the cop tries to attempt a rescue, with a can of Lysol disinfectant spray also seen bobbing on the surface.  The officer eventually dives into the water for several seconds before the other officer whose body cam is recording also goes underwater.  His colleague, who stood back slightly and filmed the rescue attempt, temporarily went underwater, with the lens capturing just how dirty and murky the liquid was, with visibility close to zero.  The police department confirmed that three bodies...

Yue Li Chin, 84, drowned in the illegal basement apartment on 84th street in Elmhurst late on Wednesday, and the building owners were issued certificate-of-occupancy violations hours later, the New York Daily News reported. Of the 13 people killed in New York City, 11 were found dead in basements, police said, as rapidly rising water levels left them with no way out.  It's unclear how many of the other deaths may have been related to illegally converted basement apartments, which are frequently rented out to impoverished families and immigrants in the city.

    ROGERS PARK — After fighting for years to get the city to install life-saving flotation devices along the Rogers Park lakefront, neighbors took matters into their own hands over the weekend and installed a life ring and caution signs at Tobey Prinz Beach Park. But by Monday, the life ring and signs installed by two neighbors were removed from the beach by the Park District, said Ald. Maria Hadden (49th). The life ring and signs were installed on the end of Pratt Pier, which juts out into the lake at Tobey Prinz Beach, 1050 W. Pratt Blvd. Of the four people who have drowned in Rogers Park in recent years, three of the incidents happened near the pier, Hadden said. That includes a drowning last week: On Aug. 22, 19-year-old Miguel Cisneros Jr. drowned after jumping off Pratt Pier for a swim. It happened before lifeguards were on duty. Cisneros was close enough to be thrown a life ring, Hadden said. Onlookers ran from the pier to the lifeguard station on the beach, where they were...

    At Osaka's news conference this week before a tennis tournament near Cincinnati, a reporter from the Cincinnati Enquirer asked her a simple, non-challenging question about her relationship with the media. She has, after all, withdrawn from one major and dropped out of another this year to avoid press conferences. After answering the question, she broke into tears. Darn media at it again? No. A few minutes later, her real enemy bared fangs. Her agent, Stuart Duguid of IMG, tweeted this: "The bully at the Cincinnati Enquirer is the epitome of why player/media relations are so fraught right now. Everyone on that Zoom (conference call) will agree that his tone was all wrong and his sole purpose was to intimidate. Really appalling behavior." Don't fall for it, Naomi. You don't need a man to defend you. You can be a strong woman. Deep down, you know there was no bullying, no intimidation, no tone. Don't you? Osaka's handlers are her greatest enemy. They have her going in all different directions that she is not prepared for: social justice queen,...
