Teenager plunged to her death due to 'poor English' of her bungee-jumping instructor


A teenager died because of the poor English of her bungee-jumping instructor, a court has heard.

Vera Mol, 17, was told "no jump" by her instructor but she thought the instructor said "now jump", so she plunged to her untimely death.

The sad incident occurred on the bridge of Cabezon de la Sal, located in the northern Spanish province of Cantabria back in 2015.



Vera was tied by the rope, but without being secured to the bridge when she took the plunge.

The instructor, who has not been named, has appeared in court accused of causing the Dutch teen's death. Judges in the court of Cantabria, northern Spain, say the instructor should have checked for ID to make sure Vera was 18 years old. the judge also added that the instructor's English was "macarronico" (very bad). It is reported that the instructor should have said "don't jump" instead of "no jump".


The second issue raised by the judge was that the bridge used for the bungee jumping was not suitable under Spanish regulations. Flowtrack, who run the bungee jumping company which employed the man have said it was an accident. Martijn Klom from the company said the girl's death was caused by a misunderstanding.

Photos: Serena Williams poses nude on the cover of Vanity Fair in her first pregnancy shoot, reveals how she met her fiance


Serena Williams bared her growing baby bump in her first ever pregnancy shoot.

The 35-year-old tennis pro covers the August issue of Vanity Fair, wearing nothing but a skin-toned thong and belly chain for photographer Annie Leibovitz, and opens up about how she met her fiance, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian and the baby they are expecting.
The couple first met at a hotel in Rome, Italy, when Ohanian, much to her displeasure, sat at a table nearby Williams at breakfast. She joked with him that there was a rat in an effort to get him to move.
"I’m from Brooklyn. I see rats all the time," Ohanian responded. Williams asked him to join her party, and the rest is history.
Ohanian planned a spontaneous trip to Italy to pop the question.
"I knew it was coming," she recalls. "I was like, ‘Serena, you’re 35, you’re ready. This is what you want."
Ohanian proposed at the same table where they had first met at that hotel in Rome. Now the two are expecting their first child.

She also revealed that she announced her pregnancy to her fiancé by handing him a paper bag containing six positive pregnancy tests. Williams admits that "it just doesn’t seem real."
"I don’t know why. Am I having a baby?" she confides. "If you would have told me last year in October or November that I would have a baby, not be pregnant but have a baby, I would have thought you were the biggest liar in the world. This is kind of how I am right now. This is happening sooner than later, and it’s going by so fast." 
She adds,
 "I don’t know what to do with a baby. I have nothing. . . . I’ve done absolutely nothing for the baby room."

Drama as man interrupts wife’s burial in Anambra, throws her corpse on the floor (Photos)

 
There was a mild drama in Nnewi South LGA of Anambra state as mourners who were attending a burial ceremony were shocked when the man whose wife was to be buried got into a fight with his in-laws, causing the woman's body to fall out of the coffin. The incident was said to have occurred on the 23rd of  June, 2017.
According to a report by CFRMagazine, the man identified as “Who Know Man” married two wives but had issues with the first wife, who died 3 years ago. However, because of the unresolved issue, he refused to bury his first wife and abandoned her in the mortuary.
It was also reported that the first wife was still being kept in the mortuary for 3 years when the man's second wife suddenly died. He then concluded on burying the second wife while the first one was still in the mortuary, a decision which was strongly opposed by the elders of the village.
The elders reportedly told him that according to Igbo tradition and custom, the first wife who had been in the mortuary for 3 years was supposed to be laid to rest first before his second wife but the man due to his long beef with his first wife's family ignored the tradition and scheduled the burial ceremony (for the second wife) on Friday, 23rd June 2017.
On the day of the supposed burial for the second wife, the family of the first wife led by the elder retrieved her body from the mortuary and stormed the burial ceremony as to lay their late sister to rest during the lying in state of the second wife.
 
While trying to bury the first wife in the grave meant for the second wife they were confronted by the man and his relations which resulted in a fight in the presence mourners attending the burial. 
One of the coffins was disrespected as it was thrown to the floor when the fight broke out.
 
Fortunately, the family of the first wife succeeded in burying their daughter in the space dug for the second wife, after some men of the Nigerian police led by DPO, SP Lucky, arrived at the scene to weigh into the situation.

The movie is about Okoro, a simple gateman who was going through the trials of the lowest class of working class families in Nigeria. He was indebted to his landlord to the extent where he was dehumanized, lost a right to his privacy and could no longer enjoy the quietness of his home. Battling with sleepless nights, an opportunity, out of the blues presented for him to travel to America, courtesy of a green card lottery entered for him by his long-term master’s nephew. America, the land of the free and home of the brave beckons… but alas it is Donald Trump’s America with some strong-faced, nonsense Immigration officers, ready with their batons to defend the gateway to their great land by ‘any means necessary’! The comedy and fiasco that ensures between Okoro and these immigration officers, and whether he succeeds in getting through immigration isbetter seen than told. ‘Gone to America’ is a humorous take on naïve immigrants whose dreams are set on arriving to America in search of greener pastures,but have to contend with Post-Trump policies.
