Mother duct-taped 11-year-old son to chair and covered mouth before going swimming with daughter 

A grandmother called police after she found her grandson duct taped to a metal chair in the basement of his home. The grandmother of Youngstown, Ohio, was afraid to remove the tape as she did not want to hurt her 11-year-old grandson in the process. Officers said that the boy’s legs were taped to the legs of the chair, his hands were taped together and there was another piece of duct tape over his mouth. Police found 32-year-old Susan Malysa, swimming in the Boardman YMCA, with her six-year-old daughter. Boardman Township police say they arrested the mother at a YMCA after the boy. Police say the child was cold and shaking. A police report notes a previous report from April 2016 alleging that the child told a school counselor a woman had hit him with a hammer to discipline him. Relatives have custody of the children. Court records don’t indicate if Malysa has an attorney. (ABC News)


Officer On Coffee Run Arrests Dunkin’ Donuts Robbery Suspect

A Boston Police officer out for a coffee run arrested a man who allegedly robbed a Dunkin’ Donuts in Andrew Square. At about 1:15 a.m. Wednesday morning, the officer, in full uniform, was ordering his coffee when a man entered the restaurant and asked to use the bathroom. An employee told the man that there was no public restroom. The officer left the restaurant and was walking to his marked cruiser with his order when an employee ran outside and said, “He’s robbing us! He’s robbing us!” Boston Police said, “The officer instinctively sprang into action (so quickly and with such abandon, in fact, that he dropped the coffee on the ground!) and responded to the front entrance.” The officer arrested the 51-year-old suspect, when he walked outside. A paper bag with several hundred dollars of stolen money was recovered by the officer. White was charged with Unarmed Robbery and Threats to do Bodily Harm. Boston Police say “as a sign of appreciation, the grateful DD employees replaced the officers’ spilled coffee!” (Boston CBS TV)


Woman rescued from river, arrested on outstanding warrant

Police say firefighters helped a woman who was stranded on a rock in a Maine river get safely back to shore, where she was immediately arrested on an outstanding warrant. Police say 37-year-old Kimberly Hayford and a man became stranded Saturday night after their inflatable raft was punctured by a rock in the Saco River near Limington. Firefighters coaxed the pair off the rock, and they were able to get back to safety. A sheriff’s deputy took their IDs and checked for any outstanding warrants, which the department says is standard procedure. Hayford was wanted for not paying a $720 fine related to a conviction for operating under the influence. Hayford’s arraignment is Monday. She couldn’t be reached immediately for comment. It was unknown if she had a lawyer. (Yahoo)

Terrified easyJet passengers left so frightened one vomited when a pilot told them there was only a ’50/50 chance’ of both engines working

Horrified passengers on an easyJet flight have claimed the pilot asked them to vote on whether to take off as there was only a “50/50 chance” of both engines working. The stunned holidaymakers were on the tarmac at Malaga airport, Spain, when the captain asked for a vote over whether they would like to remain on the plane or get off. Passengers say the un-named pilot told them there was a high chance that only one engine would be working. EasyJet said the pilot was asking passengers if they wanted to get off the plane while the issue was fixed and stressed that under no circumstances would a pilot attempt to fly with one engine. But the news – which came after the flight had already been delayed for 40 hours – was too alarming for some passengers who were thrown into a panic. The tourists were supposed to fly to Bristol on Thursday but did not board the plane until Saturday (6/10). Still at the boarding gate, the pilot came out of the cockpit to explain the situation – and asked for a show of hands. The passengers eventually flew back on a replacement aircraft later that day.

Mother raised the WRONG child for 27 years 

An Austrian hospital has been ordered to pay €30,000 in damages for handing a mother the wrong baby who she raised as her own for 27 years. Doris Gruenwald, who was born in 1990, only found out a few years ago she was not biologically related to the couple she thought were her parents after she took a DNA test. It turns out the hospital dropped a clanger nearly 30 years ago and mixed her and another child up, meaning one of them remains unidentified. Doris Gruenwald still does not know who her biological parents are, while the other victim is unaware that she was brought up by the wrong people. This is despite the hospital having last year launched a programme offering free DNA tests to the 200 women born in the hospital around the same time and their mothers. So far, only about 30 women have taken advantage of the tests and no matches have been found. (Daily Mail)
