Flight Attendants Lose Their Minds Because Of ‘Toxic Fumes’
Back in October, news broke that on a British Airways flight from San Francisco to London, things took a weird turn when “toxic fumes” effected nearly two dozen crew members. Now, we’re getting some more details.
Thanks to those fumes getting in the cabin, flight attendants reportedly began babbling, stuffing food in their mouths and forgetting where they were. The group were given oxygen and pilots called for an emergency landing in Vancouver, Canada. Once on the ground, all attendants and three pilots were rushed to a nearby hospital.
We still don’t have any word on whether any passengers were effected, but the crew is reportedly recovered just fine.

Twins Born In Different Years Thanks To Surprise Delivery
Holly and Brandon Shay were expecting to welcome their twin boys into the world in a few weeks. Instead, they rang in 2017 in their local Glendale, Arizona hospital and thanks to the holiday, their boys not only have different birthdays, but different birth years.
Sawyer was born at 11:51pm on December 31st, 2016. Everett followed 10 minutes later at 12:01am on January 1st, 2017.
“I think Sawyer might give his brother a hard time,” says proud papa Brandon. “I think it’s mostly going to be Sawyer teasing Everett over him being the eldest.”

Tourist Bitten By An Alligator…After She Tried To Take A Selfie With It
Who says stupid selfie taking is only for millennials? A 41-year-old French woman was visiting a park in Thailand with her husband when they spotted the perfect photo op: a seemingly ‘harmless’ alligator.
In case you missed it, the couple crouched down near the gator for a selfie, ignoring multiple signs warning to stay on marked paths and not to stray. Then, the gator bit down on the woman’s leg.
The unidentified tourist was rushed to the hospital, but her current condition is unknown.

STUPID CRIMINALS:
Handcuffed, supposedly drunk teen rides off in a cop car:
Dekota Locklear was stopped at a New York City DWI checkpoint, handcuffed and put in the back of cop car. The car, by the way, had no divider between the back and front seats. And no one’s sure how, but the 18-year-old North Carolinian was able to wiggle his way to the driver’s seat and speed off. Thanks to a GPS tracker, authorities were able to find the car 12-miles away, but it still took 50 cops and search dogs to find Locklear. Now, the teen (who already has a lengthy rap sheet), is facing a whole new batch of charges, including grand larceny and reckless endangerment. The two cops at the DWI checkpoint are also under investigation.
Three people injured after they tried to dress up a dog:
If a dog’s name is Scarface, maybe that’s a hint you shouldn’t play dress up with it? Officials say three people ended up in the hospital after a 52-year-old woman tried to put the pit bull mix in a sweater. The dog attacked the woman, and her husband, who tried to pull the canine off his wife. Then, the couple’s 22-year-old son took everything a step further when he attempted to stop the dog by stabbing it. The trio managed to escape the house and call cops. Animal control officers used a tranquilizer, a bag gun and a stun gun before catching the animal. No charges have been filed at this point, but this family has probably learned its lesson.
ICYMI: Not one, but two Batmans have been caught:
Police in Ormond Beach, Florida have been trying to catch a duo dressing as Batman while holding up stores at gun point. Well, they’ve caught up with the two ‘Caped Crusaders’ and it turns out the criminals are both women. Wateka Thomason and Cassandra Raffa have both been arrested and are now facing charges.
