Offbeat News: Malpractice, Stupid Criminals & More

“Malpractice Much?”

A new video has surfaced that shows a crash victim using his amputated foot as a pillow. The man from India was involved in a school bus crash, in which he was the driver. The man’s injuries were so severe from the crash that he needed his left leg amputated. Bad, right?

According to his relatives, doctors at Jhansi Medical College placed his severed limb underneath his head as a pillow… “I repeatedly asked the doctors to intervene but they refused,” says Janaki Prasad. “Finally, after about two hours, I managed to get a pillow for him from the market and that’s when the leg was removed.”

The local government is looking into the matter and stresses that action will be taken against anyone who is responsible for the incident.


STUPID CRIMINALS:

  • An Oregon woman is facing some serious prison time for drugging kids in her illegal daycare, Little Giggles, while she went tanning and more. January Neatherlin told parents they couldn’t pick their kids up between 11 AM and 2 PM because it was nap time. Apparently, that was also the time for her to go tanning and go to CrossFit and run any other errands she needed to. And to make sure the kids wouldn’t wake up and injure themselves while “under her care,” she drugged them with melatonin. She’s since plead guilty to 11 counts of first-degree criminal mistreatment and one count of third degree assault… and she’ll get to fade that tan with a 21-year-sentence.
  • A funeral home employee from Nova Scotia had his license revoked after mistakenly cremating the wrong body. David Farmer was supposed to cremate Myrtle Wilson, but instead cremated Sandra Bennett. The two women apparently died a day apart. He ended up embalming Wilson and presented her to the Bennett family by mistake. Wilson was eventually cremated and her family was notified of the mix-up before her funeral, but Bennett’s family unfortunately were the ones to figure out the issue in the first place. Farmer’s license has been revoked, but the board notes he showed “genuine remorse” for his actions.
  • Ladies… we all love a good Victoria’s Secret bra or two, but those things can sure get pricey. Two women went all or nothing after stealing “several large bags” in a Victoria’s Secret heist. Blanca Quintero of Richmond and Antanae Welch of Pittsburg were arrested near Palladio Shopping Center in California. Most of what they stole were bras, totaling out at $11,000. Store employees tried stopping the ladies, but Quintero tried using pepper spray on one of them. They were later tracked down by a description of their vehicle. Along with theft and conspiracy, Quintero is charged with using tear gas to commit a crime and Welch faces a charge of possession of counterfeit money. Quintero also had an outstanding warrant in San Mateo county.
