Florida authorities have released new video showing a good Samaritan fatally shooting a suspect as he attacked a Lee County deputy. The shooting followed a November 15, 2016 chase on Interstate 75 that reached speeds of 100 miles per hour. Eventually, the driver, Edward Strother, got out of his car on an off-ramp and attacked Deputy Dean Bardes, pinning him to the ground. Drivers pulled over to see it unfold, before one man walked into the scene to stop the attack. Strother was shot and killed by a civilian, Ashad Russell, a witness to the whole incident with a concealed weapons permit and gun. All three shots hit Strother. Within moments, Russell dropped his weapon and slowly walked away to wait for deputies.
Toddlers may barely be able to stand up, but they have an amazing ability to climb to new heights to reach something they see and want to grab. Too often that something is medicine, and that can have dangerous consequences. "Children as young as a month have ended up in an emergency department because they'd been poisoned by getting into a medicine that was left within reach of them," notes Morag Mackay of Safe Kids Worldwide. Mackay is the author of a new report finding the vast majority of parents say it's important to store medication up high and out of sight, but less than half do so. "Parents, while they know their kids well, they sometimes underestimate what they can actually do," she explains. Nearly every minute in the United States a call is placed to a poison control center because a young child got into medicine, and child resistant packaging does not mean child proof. The potential danger includes vitamins, supplements and even eye drops.
A Minneapolis man is making a big statement with his tiny works of street art. He goes by the name "Mows" and his canvases are nooks and crannies throughout the city. Tiny doors, fit for a mouse, are popping up in Minneapolis. They can be found on the corner of an alley, under a bridge, on a traffic light, etc. Next to the tiny door, you can typically find a window and welcome mat. Mows said the doors are made out of resin. "It's street art but it's not graffiti in an in-your-face kind of way," said Mows, who is concealing his identity because he puts his tiny "mouse" doors up without permission.
Texas park rangers at Atlanta State Park, southwest of Texarkana, shared a photo showing a pink and white fluffy ball on the park's Facebook page Tuesday. The post, which has been shared more than 1,600 times, explained the ball is created when a woll sower wasp lays its eggs in a white oak. The eggs hatch in spring, and chemicals on the grubs stimulate the plant to produce the growth seen in the picture.
A South Florida photographer was in the Big Cypress National Preserve early Monday when he captured these images of large and small alligators crossing a dirt road. Photographer Bobby Wummer says it was just after sunrise when more than a dozen gators started making their way out of a pond across a road and into a deeper canal. Although the video appears to have been taken at close range, Wummer says he shoots his pictures with a big wildlife lens, so he is certain not to disturb the reptiles. The bigger lens also allows him to stay a safe distance away from his dangerous subjects.
