I don't believe this baby was injured by another baby, as school told mother-

A mother who identified herself has, Grace Nta, has come online to share photos of her bruised and injured child online.

According to the young mother, she dropped her child at the school creche this morning looking well and healthy but when she returned to pick up her child, she found her bruised and injured.

When she asked the school what happened, they told her another baby had a fight with her and in the process she got injured.

The pictures she shared showed the face of the child with bruises and an injured toe.

My questions however is how could two young child had a fight and one would injured the other to this extent. And how could a baby this young get into a fight. This baby is not more than 5 to 6 months old.

Where are the caretakers when this was happening?

Does it meant that ones the parents dropped their children the children are left to there fate?

The bruises on the child's face and the cut on the her toe doesn't look consistent with what a child could have done except of course a much other child.

Did the caregiver hit her or dragged her when she won't stop crying?

Did she fall down from somewhere high up and got injured.

The mother needs to find out the truth about this from school authority and of need be the school should be sued.

A teacher who was diagnosed with two brain tumours is set to marry her boyfriend of ten years following a romantic New Year's Day proposal - after the pair were coincidentally in a play together at eight years old. Beth Titterton, from Staffordshir

A teacher who was diagnosed with two brain tumours is set to marry her boyfriend of ten years following a romantic New Year's Day proposal - after the pair were coincidentally in a play together at eight years old. 

Beth Titterton, from Staffordshire, believed she first met her now-fiancé Sam at a youth club during a Duke of Edinburgh Award training weekend when the pair were both 18. 

But by a sweet coincidence - although they don't remember - the pair soon discovered they were in a play together at a local theatre, in which Beth was a narrator and Sam played a king. 

Two decades after their forgotten first encounter, Beth and Sam, 28, were celebrating their 10-year anniversary with a walk in the forest on New Year's Day when Sam fell to one knee and asked his girlfriend to marry him. 

The proposal followed a six-year ordeal that saw Beth being diagnosed with two brain tumours and even at one point telling Sam to leave her if he couldn't cope with the impact of her illness. 

Beth and Sam met when they were 18 at a youth club during a Duke of Edinburgh Award training weekend.

'Sam was trying to impress me and attempted a big belly slide in the mud – but it was an epic fail!' said Beth. 'I laughed and thought he was an absolute idiot but he decided there and then that he wanted me to be his girlfriend.'

'A few months later, we met properly at a New Year's Eve party – this time we clicked and I loved his sense of humour.

'Sam walked me home in the early hours of New Year's Day and kissed me outside the house. I found out later that my mum and sister Libby had been peeking out of the window at us!'

Seven months after they got together, Beth went to Bangor University to do childhood studies and Sam to Coventry University to study physiotherapy, but they managed to visit each other regularly and their relationship blossomed.

But in April 2014, when Beth was 22, she began to suffer bouts of dizziness which were put down to labyrinthitis, an inner ear disorder.  

'But it just wouldn't clear up for over a month even with my prescribed drugs, and I was in bed for two weeks,' said Beth.

'Eventually, I felt better, but then I started suffering headaches in the morning, which woke me up, and severe head pains when I bent down or lowered my head.'

The GP then referred Beth to Stafford Hospital for an MRI scan - where it was revealed she had two brain tumours.

'When I got home, Mum and Dad were sitting on the settee waiting for me,' said Beth.

'Dad looked really serious and told me our GP who we'd been with for years had been round the house to tell them the results of my MRI scan.

'There was nothing wrong with my ear – I had two brain tumours.

'I was shocked and Mum rang Sam to break the news as I was struggling to process the news myself, never mind relay it to him.

'When we told Libby after she got in from school, she burst into tears and then blurted out: "It's like a storyline from Hollyoaks".' 

A week after her diagnosis, Beth had a five-hour operation to remove the largest tumour near her brain stem.

There was then another devastating blow when biopsy results revealed her tumour was cancerous.

'But I was determined that I wasn't going to be defined by my brain cancer and that it wasn't going to take over my life – it had to fit into my life,' said Beth.

Beth underwent a robotic radiotherapy treatment called Cyberknife which is more targeted than traditional radiotherapy with fewer side effects. It got rid of rest of the larger tumour and the smaller tumour.

'By far, the worst part of my treatment was the steroids, which I was put on as soon as I was diagnosed for three months,' said Beth.

'I put on two-and-half stone and felt painfully bloated. I hated my moon face and neck fat – when I looked in the mirror, I didn't recognise myself. I didn't feel like me anymore.

'Although Sam reassured me he still found me attractive, it wiped out my confidence. We didn't have sex for months because I didn't feel good about myself.

'I also didn't want to be touched as it was uncomfortable because I was so bloated with water retention from my steroid treatment.

'And I had terrible mood swings – poor Sam ended up agreeing with everything I said to keep the peace. 

'He was an absolute rock and knew when to take the mickey out of me – which we do a lot to each other – and when to listen.'

Beth has even revealed she once told her now-fiancé to leave her if her cancer became 'too much for him' to handle.

'Living with a brain tumour doesn't just affect my life, it has a huge impact on Sam and my family too,' said Beth. 

'I told him I understood if he wanted to leave if it was too much for him – but he said he wasn't going anywhere.' 

Despite the support from Sam and her close-knit family, at times Beth felt isolated and fearful – until The Brain Tumour Charity became a lifeline.

'I tried my best to be positive but, of course, I had my dark days,' she said.

'Then I found The Brain Tumour Charity's Facebook page and asked to join, it helped so much instantly being able to connect with people who were going through what I was experiencing – I wasn't alone anymore.

'Libby and I have both had fantastic support from the charity's young adults service.

'We became Young Ambassadors to support other young people as I wanted to be there for others as the charity had been there for me.'

By September 2014, Beth was back to teaching. But the next January, a routine scan revealed Beth's cancer had come back.

'We knew it would probably come back at some stage, but were shocked at how quickly that happened,' Beth said. 'I had more radiotherapy and further sessions after more regrowth in 2016 and 2017.' 

Determined to live her life to the fullest, in February 2016 Beth went on three-month trip to teach in Fiji and travel to New Zealand, Hong Kong and Dubai with Sam.

Though her tumours have grown back three times, Beth has now been stable for four years and has scans every three months.

'Scanxiety has become part of our lives, but I'm grateful I'm doing so well and we choose to focus on the positive,' said Beth, who is supporting The Brain Tumour Charity’s Big Bake to raise money for vital research, which runs throughout Brain Tumour Awareness Month (BTAM) in March.

The couple became engaged at New Year after 10 years together and some hinting from Beth. 

 'Over the years, I'd dropped so many hints subtle and not-so-subtle that he should propose, but it felt the right time. 

'We were in Northumberland for the weekend and walking in Kielder Forest with our dog Milo,' said Beth, who lives apart from Sam during the week due to work but spends weekends with him in their house.

'I was moaning about how cold and muddy I was and looking behind me to see where Milo was.

'Then I heard Sam say, "I've got a question to ask you." I turned around and he got down on one knee and said, "Will you marry me?"

'I couldn't believe it and blurted out, "Of course I will – about time".

'We haven't set a wedding date yet but it'll most likely be 2022. 

'I feel blessed that Sam he loves me for who I am – he makes me feel like Beth, a person, a woman, not solely a brain tumour patient – and I'm excited about our future together.'

Sarah Lindsell, The Brain Tumour Charity's chief executive, said: 'We are so very grateful to Beth for sharing her story to help raise awareness about brain tumours – the biggest cancer killer of children and under-40s in the UK.

'Like Beth, many young people feel alone and isolated as they come to terms with their diagnoses and the physical and emotional impact of living with a brain tumour, which is why our support services are so important.

'Beth is a fantastic advocate for the charity and we send her and Sam our very warmest wishes on their engagement and wish them every happiness for their future.'

Texas Restaurant Opens Early to Serve 3-Year-Old Girl with Leukemia Her Favorite Meal

J. Wilson's restaurant in Texas opened their doors early to accommodate a young customer going through a tough time

A Texas restaurant helped bring a smile to the face of a sick 3-year-old girl when they opened their doors early just for her.

When Adelaide Stanley turned 3 on July 1, 2019, she was diagnosed with leukemia, a rare cancer that starts in the bone marrow and affects blood cells, platelets and white blood cells, according to the American Cancer Society.

The combination of the disease and her chemotherapy treatment has dramatically affected Adelaide’s immune system, her parents, Vanlam Nguyen and Jordon Stanley, explained to Good Morning America. The family has largely kept Adelaide indoors since the diagnosis.

“A simple common cold would put her into the hospital,” Nguyen said of Adelaide, who also has two sisters, Zoë, 11, and Alice, 1. “As a parent with a kid who has leukemia, I try to keep her in a bubble.”

“We went from hugging everyone to being a germaphobe, so we don’t bring anything home to her,” she added to CNN. “We stopped doing what we do as a family.”

But during a recent trip in her father’s car, Adelaide spotted her favorite restaurant — J. Wilson’s in Beaumont — and asked if they could all get food. Stanley had to remind Adelaide that they would have to wait until she is better.

“That was so hard,” Nguyen told Fox News of the moment. “He said, ‘Baby, when you’re not sick anymore, when you get better, we can go eat there.’ ”

Nguyen later told a friend about the heartbreaking moment, and, in turn, the friend reached out to the restaurant’s owner, John Wilson, to see if he’d accommodate a special request: opening up early so Adelaide and the family could enjoy a meal by themselves.

“They used to come to brunch here all the time before she was diagnosed with leukemia,” Wilson told GMA. “They had been in confinement pretty much since July.”

The restaurant’s staff went to work, deep cleaning the establishment and decorating it in pink — Adelaide’s favorite color.

Then, on Jan. 26, J. Wilson’s opened an hour and 15 minutes early so Adelaide could have her favorite — scrambled eggs, bacon and homemade biscuits.

“Seeing her smile, just knowing we could give her a little sense of normalcy was great,” Wilson told GMA. “It’s something we all felt fulfillment from.”

Not only that, but the restaurant also took care of the bill.

“I was ready to pay for the bill, but it was already taken care of,” Nguyen recalled to CNN. “I can’t explain how much this means to me, her dad and her sister.”

According to Fox News, doctors are hoping to declare Adelaide cancer-free by September 2021.

A 12-month-old baby was found dead in the back seat of their father’s car, which was parked in the Kompleks Tun Razak, Indera Mahkota, Kuantan parking lot yesterday afternoon (17th February 2020).

There’s been so many cases where small children and animals have died after being left in a hot car for a certain amount of time.

But what if you didn’t know that they were in the car?

A 12-month-old baby was found dead in the back seat of their father’s car, which was parked in the Kompleks Tun Razak, Indera Mahkota, Kuantan parking lot yesterday afternoon (17th February 2020).

A kind Samaritan had rushed them to the Indera Mahkota Medical Centre nearby on a motorcycle, but unfortunately, the baby was officially pronounced dead.

Come on, parents, it’s an age-long lesson that you should never leave your small children alone at any time. We wish only the best for the family of the deceased and our deepest condolences.

I carried my baby knowing she might die minutes after being born - but I'm so glad I put my faith in her

AT just 24 weeks pregnant, Samantha Perryman was forced to make the agonising decision no parent wants to make - whether or not to abort her unborn baby.

The mum-of-three, 29, had just found out that her baby had a rare form of a condition called spina bifida - which is when a baby's spine and spinal cord don't develop properly in the womb.

And medics told her that if her unborn daughter was to survive the pregnancy she would likely only live for a matter of minutes.

Heartbroken, Samantha desperately researched the disorder and discovered there was only one survivor of the lethal condition - a young boy who lives in Asia.

With this tiny fragment of hope, Samantha chose to fight for their baby and give her the best possible chance of survival.

Samantha said: "It was awful to hear that. I just broke down in tears. I cried for days on end.

"We had the option to terminate the pregnancy but she was an active baby. I felt it would be killing our baby and we decided to give her the chance she deserved."

It was at the 20-week gender scan when the County Durham couple discovered there were complications with Leona-Grace.

The couple, who also are parents to Ella-Louise, six, Rosie-Leigh, five, were transferred to the University Hospital of North Durham where it was confirmed she had spina bifida.

Doctors carried out a further scan at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle just weeks later and told them the heartbreaking news that their daughter may only live for a matter of minutes, if she survived being born in the first place.

It was a tough experience for the Craghead family who had no idea how to prepare for the birth of a baby they were likely to never be able to take home.

Samantha was rushed into hospital with unimaginable pains she described as "ten times worse than contractions".

She underwent a c-section on November 18 - five-and-a-half weeks ahead of her due date.

But there was sheer joy in the theatre room when Leona-Grace was born weighing 7lb 8oz.

Samantha said: "I didn't know how to feel going into the c-section. We were just hoping more than anything.

"But as soon as I heard her crying I just started crying. I think it was a mixture of both joy and relief."

Leona-Grace was placed in special care and the family was forced to wait and see if their daughter would respond well to treatment.

But brave Leona-Grace continued to battle on and was able to undergo her vital operations.

The first was spinal surgery while the second was to have shunts placed in her head to relieve the build-up of fluid on the brain after the tot developed hydrocephalus.

She was also diagnosed with patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) - a medical condition where the blood vessel that connects the pulmonary artery to the aorta remains open after birth.

It made breathing harder for Leona-Grace who was, and continues to be, 24/7 oxygen dependent.

The youngster was also born with scoliosis - where the spine twists and curves to the side - and has four ribs missing on the right side and two fused together on the left.

It was on December 20, just over a month after Leona Grace was born, when Samantha and Stephen were given the news they were desperate to hear - they could finally take their baby girl home.

She said: "It's been fantastic having Leona-Grace at home.

"It was awful having to leave her at hospital each night. But the special care unit at the RVI was fantastic.

"Leona-Grace is a little fighter. We have been told her lungs could haemorrhage and come through her ribs at some stage.

"She has some long-term effects too including her having an 80%-90% chance of not being able to walk."

But at this point they are just overjoyed that Leona-Grace is with the family and making happy memories - a prospect they never saw as a possibility looking back to their 24-week scan.

Samantha added: "We definitely didn't see ourselves in this position a few months ago.

"We have had good days and bad days but it is all worth it now. Doctors are hoping to wean her off the oxygen because she is doing so well.

"I know doctors have to give you the worse case scenario but we're so pleased they got it wrong on this occasion.

"Every second, minute, hour, day is a bonus for us. Leona-Grace is our little miracle."

Wow, He spent nearly 30 million US dollars on tattoos, but ended his life by committing suicide

The suicide of Alan Krueger, a former Obama and Clinton adviser who killed himself this weekend, has shocked the worlds of politics and business where he was universally revered. 

Krueger, 58, had a new book coming out in June and was still a member of faculty at Princeton University in New Jersey.

He lived at home with his wife Lisa, with whom he has two children, Benjamin, 28, and Sydney, 26. He is survived by them, his elderly parents and siblings. 

The family confirmed that he killed himself in a statement that was released by Princeton on Monday but no further details surrounding his death have emerged.

Krueger, who served as a top adviser to both Obama and Clinton, recently completed his sixth book, Rockonomics. 

The book, which will be released in June, 'uses the music industry, from superstar artists to music executives, from managers to promoters, as a way in to explain key principles of economics, and the forces shaping our economic lives.' 

He was an avid tweeter who used social media almost daily until the end of January when he suddenly stopped. Currency, his publisher, has not commented on his death.

Krueger was best known for his groundbreaking research into minimum wage and the effect it had on labor. 

He determined that a higher minimum wage did not slow down hiring as conservatives have long argued.  

After serving as a Labor Department economist under President Bill Clinton, Krueger worked for President Barack Obama as a top Treasury official and then as chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers from 2011 to 2013.

In a statement, Obama credited Krueger with helping revive the U.S. economy after the devastating 2008 financial crisis.

'He spent the first two years of my administration helping to engineer our response to the worst financial crisis in 80 years and to successfully prevent the chaos from spiraling into a second Great Depression,' Obama said. 

'He helped us return the economy to growth and sustained job creation, to bring down the deficit in a responsible way and to set the stage for wages to rise again.'

Clinton tweeted: 'Alan Krueger was a brilliant economist for the public interest - from his research proving that raising the minimum wage doesn't increase unemployment, to his recent work showing that America's opioid epidemic has increased it. 

'My thoughts are with his family. We lost him too soon.' 

David Axelrod, a senior adviser in the Obama administration, tweeted: 'Stunned and saddened to read of Alan Krueger’s passing. He was a brilliant and warm WH colleague. A wonderful combination. RIP.' 

Jordan Weissmann tweeted: 'Alan Krueger helped pioneer the early research showing that minimum wage increases don't necessarily kill jobs. A giant in labor economics. Will be missed.'

Paul Krugman, columnist for The New York Times, tweeted: 'The tragedy of Alan Krueger, even worse than we realized. 

'What a terrible thing to happen to an intellectual giant who made America a better place for millions of people.' 

Jacob Bernstein, an economic adviser to former Vice President Joe Biden, tweeted: 'Like anyone who knew him, I'm in shock and despair over the death of Alan Krueger.

'All we can take solace in is how lucky we are to have known him.' 

Stephanie Ruhle, a host on cable news channel MSNBC, tweeted: 'Truly sad to hear about Alan Krueger passing - a brilliant mind & a lovely man.' 

Robert Reich, who was labor secretary in the Clinton administration, tweeted: 'Our hearts go out to the family of Alan Krueger, friend and colleague, who served this country nobly as economic adviser to Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, and who saw economics as inextricably related to ethics. 

'He passed far too early. We grieve the tragic loss.' 

Cecilia Rouse, dean of Princeton's Woodrow Wilson School for Public Policy and International Affairs, said she first met Krueger during the 1980s when she was a student at Harvard University and he was a graduate student there.

'He was incredibly creative, dedicated and prolific,' Rouse said. 

'He couldn't have been a better friend or mentor. It's a loss for economics and public policy.'

Krueger had been teaching at Princeton since 1987. 

His research extended to such issues as economic inequality and the consequences of opioid addiction for the job market.

He also applied his economic work to some unconventional areas, from terrorism to the music industry. 

Krueger found, for example, a surging wealth gap within pop music. 

In a 2005 paper, he illustrated how a rising share of concert revenue was flowing to a narrow top sliver of recording artists. 

Krueger went on to write a book about economics and the music industry, Rockonomics, that is set to be published in June.

While serving under Obama, Krueger developed and popularized the concept of the 'Great Gatsby Curve.' 

It showed that high economic inequality corresponds with low economic mobility on a generation-to-generation basis. 

In short, it meant that when economic disparities between the rich and everyone else are wide, people's ability to improve their financial health depends even more heavily on their parents' economic status.

The curve was named after F. Scott Fitzgerald's iconic literary character Jay Gatsby, who rose from being a poor Midwestern boy to a wealthy bootlegger.

But Krueger was perhaps best-known for his research on the minimum wage with David Card. 

Their 1993 paper found that a rise in New Jersey's minimum wage had had no effect on employment in the state's fast food sector compared with the same sector just across the state line in Pennsylvania.

Widely admired in both economic and political circles, Krueger was known as an avid tennis player and for frequently taking time to discuss the nuances of public policy with reporters.

Gene Sperling, who worked with Krueger in the Obama administration as the director of the National Economic Council, tweeted Monday that he was, 'Just shocked, just stunned, so, so saddened.'

'Alan has been my friend and colleague for over 20 years - and one of the very most consequential economists of our generation,' Sperling said. 

'His path-breaking work on minimum wage was only one of many ways he used his genius for the good of all.'

In his statement, Obama said of Krueger: 'He had a perpetual smile and a gentle spirit - even when he was correcting you. That's what made him Alan a fundamentally good and decent man.' 

Krueger is survived by his wife, Lisa, and their two children - Ben and Sydney.

Oh, Dubai princess can't stand polygamy any more, derailed bodyguard and fled to Britain

Sheikh Mohammed is the ruler of the emirate of Dubai. He has $ 4 billion in family wealth and has a huge influence in the Arab region. At the same time, Chief Mohammed also has 6 wives and 30 children. Among them, Princess Hurd never showed up and gave birth to 12 children for Chief Mohammed, including Crown Prince Hadam of Dubai. Today we are talking about Chief Mohammed's youngest wife, Princess Haya Binte Hussein.

Princess Haya was born on May 3, 1974, the daughter of King Hussein of Jordan and his third wife, Queen Aria. When Princess Haya was 3 years old, her mother died in a helicopter accident. And her father died of complications of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 1999. Princess Haya took the throne to his brother and became King of Apdullah II. Princess Haya is a versatile person who graduated from the University of Oxford in the UK and has excellent equestrian skills. She is the only woman in history to win a medal at the Pan-Arab Equestrian Games.

For the purpose of political marriage, in 2004 Princess Haya ’s half-brother King King Abdullah II assigned her to Dubai Chief Mohammed. The huge age gap(25 years) buried their marriage. There were hidden dangers. In addition, Chief Mohammed had married five wives before, but Princess Haya was married for the first time. Although Chief Muhammad's family was strong and a grand wedding was held for her, the contradiction between the old man and the young wife never ceased.

Many women in Dubai need to abide by Islamic teachings, including Princess Hurd, who almost never show up. They have been quietly at home since they were married, responsible for having children for their husbands. As Princess Haya of Jordan, who had received higher education in the United Kingdom, she could not accept the life of such a husband and daughter, and remained unknown and getting old. Finally in June 2019, Princess Haya fled from the Dubai royal family with two children and 31 million pounds, and she took refuge in the UK several times.

Chief Mohammed is a poet recognized by the Arabs. After his wife defected, he was so angry that he wrote a poem of adultery on social media. It is reported that Princess Haya had an improper relationship with one of the bodyguard. This is something Chief Mohammed can not stand. Princess Haya fled because she would be punished the most severely in a strictly Islamic country and even sentenced to prison.

In today's society, free love and equality between men and women are symbols of civilization, and Chief Mohammed married a wife 25 years younger than himself through political marriage, while enjoying polygamous privileges at the same time. This was an unequal relationship . Now that a hearing is being held in a court in London, Chief Mohammed wants his two daughters to return to Dubai, and Princess Haya is not to be outdone. Her lawyer is Shackleton, the former lawyer in the divorce proceedings of Prince Chase.

Today, the case has not yet come to an end, but Princess Haya struggles for her female rights and interests, her courage deserves to be affirmed.

Oh, Chief suspect 'tried to sell missing teen's remains to her mum'

Police have revealed they still get new leads in the case of the Springfield Three, where two teenage girls and a mother vanished without a trace following a high school graduation 27 years ago. 

Sherrill Levitt, 47, her daughter Suzanne Streeter, 19, and friend 18-year-old Stacy McCall, have not been seen since June 7, 1992. They all disappeared after a party in a case that is so well-known in south-west Missouri police simply call it 3MW.

Now police in the city have told People how they still receive 'several leads a week' with officers continuing their investigations what happened to the three women. 

The nature of the leads are not known and it is unclear if police are investigating them. DailyMail.com has contacted Springfield police for further comment.

The teenage girls graduated from Kickapoo High School in Springfield in June 1992 and were last seen around 2.15am when they left a party and headed back to Suzanne's home to spend the night.

Her mother Sherrill was last heard from earlier that night around 11:15pm when she talked with a friend about painting a chest of drawers.  

After not hearing from her daughter Stacy's mom Janis went to the home where she had stayed the night. 

There, the now 71-year-old, found an unlocked door, the TV on and the three women's purses on the floor. 

She told People: 'I was thinking "I can't move any of this stuff because something's wrong".'  

Her daughter's clothes were neatly folded and the purse were lined up and open.  

She said: 'We were calling everyone we knew to see if they were there by some chance. I was getting more concerned by the minute.' 

When the alarm was raised the following day, investigators found their cars in the driveway of the house at 1717 E. Delmar Street.

The beds had been slept in. Broken glass was on the porch. The dog was restless. The TV was fuzzy. Their purses, money and keys remained in the house.

The only possible hint of foul play was a shattered ceiling light fixture on the front porch.

Rick Bookout, who was the first officer on the scene, calls it 'one of the most unusual unsolved cases in this city'. 

The girls are said to have made plans with friends, Janelle Kirby and Mike Hensen, to go to a water park the day after the graduation. 

They went to the home after not hearing from their pals and found the glass on the porch. The couple say they then left before coming back again a few hours later. 

With the front door unlocked they are said to have listened to the answering machine to see if there were any messages for them. 

But instead Janelle and Mike say they received two obscene calls. They report leaving after cleaning up the glass.

It was not until Janis arrived a few hours later that the alarm was raised. She says: 'I knew something was very wrong.

'I thought they would be home right away. I was angry we could not find her.

'There's not a word called closure in the dictionary for families missing someone.' 

Sherrill's sister sister Debra Schwartz had her sibling and niece declared dead in 1997. She said: 'I've had a lot of dreams with Sherrill in them.' 

Since their disappearance police have questioned Suzie's older brother Bartt. He was estranged from his family and 'struggling with alcohol addiction' but passed his polygraph test. 

Convicted kidnapper Rober Craig Cox then said in 1996 that he knew all three were dead. Police sergeant Todd King told People: 'It's hard to gauge whether he's trying to play with law enforcement and the media. Or if he truly knows something.'   

He told The Kansas City Star: 'How do you wrap your head around three people literally disappearing? With no idea where they went?' 

Anyone with information is asked to to contact the Springfield Police Department or Crime Stoppers.

Nurse treating NICU baby also treated the child's father decades ago

On Jan. 30, a woman named Renata Freydin gave birth to a boy 10 weeks early.

Zayne Alexander Caldwell is being treated at The Children's Hospital at Saint Peter's University Hospital. Freydin's fiance, David Caldwell, was born six weeks early at the same hospital in 1986.

So, when the couple was at home recently looking at his baby book, Freydin noticed that a nurse holding her fiance all those years ago looked very familiar.

"I knew that lady!!," Freydin wrote in a Facebook post. "I immediately asked him who she was and he confirmed that she was the nurse who took care of him during his stay in the NICU and his mom loved her so much that she needed a photo of the two of them on the day he was discharged."

The couple brought the picture to the hospital and confirmed it was the same nurse, Lissa McGowan, who had taken care of their baby since his birth.

"The past 2 weeks have been filled with worries and uncertainty but we can breathe easy knowing my lil nuggets nurse is the same one that helped the man I love when he was in the same situation," Freydin wrote.

Siblings died 'playing game to see how far they could swim out to sea'

A brother and sister drowned in the sea while playing a game to see how far they could go from shore, an inquest heard.

Haider Ali and his little sister Malika Shamas got into difficulty during a family trip to Clacton Pier.

A female cousin involved in the same incident was rescued from the sea and survived.

Haider, 18, and 14-year-old Malika's mum Shagufta Shamas was seen dabbing away tears during the inquest.

She told the coroner: "I just want to ensure that safety precautions are in place so that an incident like this does not occur in the future."

Essex's senior coroner Caroline Beasley-Murray ruled the deaths were the result of an accident.

She said she is minded to write a prevention of future death report dealing with the quality of warning signs near the scene.

The coroner said some warning signs could be in a larger print and should also appear in a child friendly format.

She added that the court is "very mindful" that Easter is not far away and "most concerned" that safety improvements are made before the holiday.

The Shamas siblings, of Luton, were on a family trip to Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, last August.

The hearing in Chelmsford was told both siblings could swim.

The pair and two cousins were playing a game to go deeper and deeper when the tragic accident occurred.

DI Craig Wiggins told the inquest Malika, wearing a summer dress, was still able to stand up.

But he said she then "panicked" prompting her brother and the other children to come to her aid.

Mrs Shamas gave evidence that she struggled to keep her balance on the soft sand while trying to help.

She said: "I also entered the water to try to help some of the children.

"I was clinging on to this precious life.

"The sand underneath my feet was giving way and I was trying to reach this little girl. This happened within minutes.

"Should there not have been signs in this particular area saying that you should not go in and that this is what can occur?"

Malika died of immersion while her brother died two days later of pneumonia, brain damage and drowning.

The incident happened just over a year after 15-year-old Ben Quartermaine also drowned near the pier.

The inquest was told a warning sign on a nearby flood defence read "danger, no bathing due to varying depths of water".

The area where the children died was just out of range of the nearest beach patrol 375m away.

Oh,Heartwarming twist after 'frantic' mum calls police over baby formula

When a mother of five found herself stuck at home with no way to feed her newborn baby, she called emergency services in a last-ditch effort to feed her child.

“I have no formula and no idea how to get formula to her,” Shannon Bird from Utah told a 911 operator.

The mum was feeding her six-week-old daughter, London, in the early hours of January 28 when her milk dried up, her husband was out of of town and her four other children, including one in a leg cast, were asleep.

The new mother explained to the 911 operator that she had tried calling neighbours and teenagers she knew for help but at 2:12am, nobody answered.

“I’ve never been in this predicament ever… this is my fifth kid and this has never happened,” the distraught mum can be heard saying in the recorded 911 call.

Lone Peak police officers Brett Wagstaff and Konner Gabbitas responded to the call for help, bringing a bottle of regular milk to Ms Bird, which they quickly realised wasn’t suitable for a six-week-old baby.

“We’ll be right back with some formula for your baby, she’s adorable,” Mr Wagstaff can be heard saying on the released body camera vision from the visit.

After confirming which formula to buy, the officers made a trip to a late night department store and returned with a tin of formula.

“That’s the same stuff we gave my daughter when she was first born, so hopefully it doesn’t upset her stomach,” Mr Wagstaff said as he handed the formula to the grateful mother.

“I was not expecting them to go get that food for me,” Ms Bird told local outlet KSL.

The “frantic” mother said her daughter had been screaming that night and she was had called 911 hoping that police would patrol the front of her home while her eldest child, an eight-year-old watched her children, so she could dash out to buy formula.

The grateful mum told KSL she could not thank police enough.

“Thank you for helping people in situations where they can’t help themselves in emergencies,” she said.

While this was a unique case, Lone Peak’s public information officer Dave Ventrano said it was all part of the oath ‘to protect and serve’.

“Most of us, we got on this job to help people, and this was an example of helping out a mother that was in need,” Mr Ventrano said.

Oh,Breastfeeding mum's fake tan fail leaves baby boy 'looking like Homer Simpson'

baby boy was left “looking like Homer Simpson” after his mum breastfed him while she was applying fake tan.

Keziah Jozefiak attended to five-month-old Raf not realising it would rub off on him.

The 20-year-old said: “When I looked down at Raf, I just burst out laughing. I couldn’t believe the tan had left his mouth looking like Homer.

“Raf was asleep so I thought I could squeeze in some tanning time but he woke up starving mid-tan.

“It is the first and definitely last time I feed him with my tan still on.

“It hadn’t actually occurred to me that the tan could transfer on to him.

“I took a picture and sent it to my girl friends and they were all laughing. Everyone finds it hilarious and my mum rang me in tears she found it so funny.”

Keziah was tanning ahead of going out for a meal with her partner James Smith, 21, when Raf woke up hungry. As the tot is exclusively breastfed, Keziah didn’t think twice before picking him up for a feed despite her Bondi Sands fake tan not having had time to dry.

After Raf had finished, Keziah – who is training to be a mortgage adviser – was left in stitches as her son had a circle of fake tan covering his lips, the bottom of his nose down to his chin, just like the stubble that appears on Homer’s face in the cartoon.

A tweet showing Raf unperturbed and grinning has been liked more than 101,000 times online

Keziah, from Derby, added: “It took me a good hour to get the tan off his face but he found the whole thing hilarious. I used baby oil and baby wipes and he looked shiny and clean after.”

Second divorce announcement rocks royal family

The Queen's nephew the Earl of Snowdon has announced he and his wife are to divorce in the second royal split in a week.

It comes six days after the Queen's grandson Peter Phillips announced his divorce from wife Autumn.

A spokesman for the Earl, son of the late Princess Margaret, told The Sun: "The Earl and Countess of Snowdon have amicably agreed that their marriage has come to an end and that they shall be divorced.

"They ask that the press respect their privacy and that of their family."

The Earl - David Armstrong-Jones - who is known for his high-end furniture company and wife Serena are to separate after more than 25 years of marriage.

The couple wed in October 1993 and have two children - Viscount Linley, Charles Armstrong-Jones and Lady Margarita Armstrong-Jones.

The Earl's mother Margaret, the Queen's sister, died in 2002 and he became the 2nd Earl of Snowdon following the death of his father the Earl of Snowdon, celebrity photographer Antony Armstrong-Jones, in 2017.

In 2018, the Earl controversially applied to become a member of the House of Lords.

The peer was known as David Armstrong-Jones or Viscount Linley until his father Tony Armstrong-Jones, the society photographer who became the 1st Earl of Snowdon after marrying the Queen's sister, died.

Lord Snowdon is a furniture maker and was previously the boss of top auction house Christie's.

His parents married in 1960 and divorced in 1978.

Brit boy, 4, died after getting from kids' area into adults-only pool on Thomas Cook holiday in Egypt

A four-year-old boy drowned in an Egyptian hotel swimming pool after getting through a gap in a barrier which separated the children's and adult's zones.

'Adventurous' Isaac Webster was on holiday with parents Kelly and Andy, along with brother Leo in the Red Sea resort of Hurghada.

The youngster, from Great Sankey in Warrington, was initially playing in the children's pool, but somehow made his way into the section for grown-ups.

When his mum realised she couldn't find him, almost three years ago, on April 19, 2017, she anxiously alerted a nearby lifeguard.

Together they searched the area, but distraught Kelly then saw her child floating in the water.

He was rushed from the Steigenberger Aqua Magic Hotel, which Thomas Cook said they did not own or control, to hospital after 20 minutes of CPR by staff.

At the Nile Hospital, Isaac revealed signs he was improving, as he was placed on a ventilator, still seriously ill.

The following day, his condition dangerously dipped with a severe chest infection and difficulties controlling his temperature.

Isaac died the next day.

In hospital, the family were visited by officials from the British Embassy and Egyptian Police.

Alan Moore, Cheshire's senior coroner, sitting in Warrington today, described Isaac as a 'fit, healthy and very active four-year-old'.

He added: 'It's likely he'd made his way between the two pools through the gap in the barrier.'

The cause of death was recorded as respiratory failure due to drowning. Following the tragedy, devastated friends and family managed to quickly raise £11,000, more than double its original £5,000 target.

It was set up by Sankey Strikes - a Warrington Junior Football Club - where Isaac's older brother Leo played for the Under 8 squad.

The website was set up to help raise funds to bring Isaac's body home and  pay for funeral costs and bills for the bereaved family.

At the time, Isaac's heartbroken dad posted a photograph of his son and said: 'Our little adventure boy sadly passed away this morning at 10.15 UK time.'

The day before he posted a picture of him playing in the garden, saying: 'Me, Kelly and Leo want to say a huge thanks to everybody for their kind thoughts and prayers for Isaac.'

Before his death, Isaac's sister Millie also wrote: 'Please take some time to think and pray for my gorgeous little brother Isaac who is critical and on life support in Egypt.

'I love you so much.'

Dad Cries While Realizing The Sound Coming From Inside Stuffed Bear Is His Late Son’s Heartbeat

In 2019, John Reid’s 16-year-old son, Dakota, passed away after a tragic car accident. Before he died, John rested his head on Dakota’s chest at the hospital just to hear his son’s heartbeat for the last time.

Then there’s a man named Robert O’Connor, who needed to put on life support after a decade-long battle with heart disease. Thankfully, a donor heart gave him another chance at life — as he one of the five recipients of Dakota’s organs.

Robert wanted to show Dakota’s family how grateful he was to have been given such a precious gift. So, while at the Tufts Medical Center in Boston, he enlisted the help of the hospital staff to create an unforgettable surprise for the Reids.

In the tear-jerking clip below, John’s wife films the moment she hands her husband a stuffed bear and the note that came with it.

“John and Stephanie, we would have preferred to give this to you in person, but not sure when that would happen,”it read.

And with that, John pressed the bear’s paw, heard a sound coming from inside the stuffing, and broke down crying.

The grieving father was suddenly taken back to those days and nights at the hospital, laying his head on Dakota’s chest.

Harriet Harman's class war is a recipe for ruin

As the niece of a countess and an old girl of a top public school, Equalities Minister Harriet Harman is living proof of her own pet theory: an upper-class background and an expensive private education are no guarantees of intelligence or fitness for a well-paid job.

She's right about something else, too: it's one of the greatest scandals of our age that social mobility - the engine of Britain's success since Tudor times - has screeched to a halt since 1997.

Indeed, the shocking truth is that a child born into the underclass today is more likely to remain trapped in it than at any time since the Second World War.

There are no prizes for guessing why. Family breakdown - encouraged by a tax and benefits system that favours single parents and penalises married couples - has a great deal to do with it.

So, too, has the relentless erosion of standards and discipline in our schools, which has turned the worst of them into mere day-care centres for delinquents.

Then there's the shameful way the modern welfare state actively discourages entire communities from seeking work.

But the Rt Hon Harriet Harperson doesn't see it like that. In her infantile Marxist view of the world, it's not because this Government has destroyed incentives and opportunity that so many of the poorest are held back.

Oh, no. All that prevents them from getting on in life, she believes, is prejudice and 'the persistent inequality of social class'.

Hence her Alice in Wonderland scheme of laying a statutory duty on public sector bodies to narrow the gap between rich and poor.

Instead of tackling the problem at its roots by reforming the welfare and education systems, she wants a law that will put class prejudice on the same footing as discrimination on the grounds of race, sex or disability.

Can't you already see the nation's lawyers rubbing their hands with glee? Why, this idiotic plan would conjure up a whole new, multi-million-pound litigation industry overnight.

Worse, it would skew public policy even further against aspirational middle-class Britons and their children, offering greater rewards for failure and penalties for success.

Ms Harman, of all people, should understand that the instinct to do our best for our young is the strongest spur to a better society.

With breathtaking hypocrisy, after all, she sent her own children to the selective schools she now wants to abolish for everyone else.

Her supporters hail her declaration of class war as 'Socialism in one clause'. It's more like a blueprint for national ruin.

Wow, A Britain Couple Had 4 Babies of Same Looking, Who Were Born Just by “Copying and Pasting”

What would it feel like if you had quadruplets? I believe that the excitement of the parents is multiplied but then the pressure of life is also multiplied for a second thought.

In Bedfordshire, England, husband Joseph and wife Julie were really lucky.

Their children are the only "identical quadruplets" in the UK. These children all came from the same embryo, which split into four, and all had a single chorion, known as the same egg. At that time, doctors suggested that one or two of them should be terminated to provide better survival opportunities for the remaining babies, but Julie finally decided to keep all alive.

The birth of these four babies made them the only pair of "identical quadruplets" in Britain.

The responsibility of raising these four babies is not easy! All the food and snacks must be four and parents need to repeat 4 times. When they are going out, parents have to look very carefully.

However, how to tell them is a big problem. It has puzzled parents and teachers all the time. When they are babies, their mother marked their names on their feet. As they grew older, their names were written on all their stuffs.

"In the beginning I needed to feed every half an hour in shifts, and now I consume 4 pounds of milk on an average day. I haven't counted other staple foods. I need to change 36 diapers and wash a lot of clothes every day. I have to buy 4 children's clothes, shoes, beds once". Now the four little girls are gradually growing up, and the room they used to live in is not enough to accommodate them. All of girls are beauties now!

2-Year-Old girl cried frequently and Nana immediately called police after lifting her clothes

Fairy tales often say that every child used to be an angel. They fly and fly in the sky. Only when they see a very good mother can they fly to her stomach and become her child.

After countless quarrels, fang's father and mother were divorced, and the court awarded fang's custody to father. Shortly after the divorce, fang's father found a more beautiful stepmother for her. Although fang's grandmother didn't understand, she had no choice but trying to make up for her granddaughter. But weirdly, fang would cry loudly every time she saw her grandmother. At first, she thought that little kid missed her mother. But she cried too many times, which made her suspicious. After fang's father and stepmother went out, grandma decided to talk to fang.

When grandma lifted fang's clothes, she was shocked by the scene in front of her: fang's body was covered with bruises, and her feet couldn't stand up because of her injuries, which were all hit by her stepmother! It turns out that this stepmother doesn't like children. Whenever fang wants to get near her or ask her questions, she begins to beat the poor kid. Grandma was so angry that she called the police directly before her son came back. After knowing the truth, Fang's father chose to divorce his vicious second wife.

Children are the primary victim of a broken marriage.

Mom Reunite With Her Deceased Daughter Via Virtual Reality And It's Heartbreaking

From gaming to military training, virtual reality has been used in a range of innovative ways in recent years.

Now, the technology has been used to ‘reunite’ a grieving mother with her daughter, four years after she died.

Jang Ji-sung used the technology on Korean TV show ‘Meeting You’, and was able to see and touch a virtual version of her daughter Nayeon, who passed away in 2016.

During the touching interaction, the mum and daughter were able to play, touch and even hold conversations.

In a video of the encounter, the mother can be heard saying ‘Oh my pretty, I have missed you’, while stroking the virtual replica of her daughter.

The virtual daughter then replied: “I missed mom a lot.”

At the end of the conversation, Nayeon then lay down to sleep, and her mother said goodbye.

Jang hopes that the encounter will help others who have lost family members.

Writing on her blog, she said: “Three years later, I now think I should love her more than miss her and feel sick so that I can be confident when I meet her later. I hope many people will remember Nayeon after watching the show.”

Speaking to MailOnline, Dr Blay Whitby, an ethicist at the University of Sussex, said: "We just don't know the psychological effects of being 'reunited' with someone in this way.

“A lot of psychiatrists would regard that as potentially unhealthy. The problem is that in the pursuit of profit or worse, people will be exploited.”
