A father drove his car over an opening drawbridge in a death-defying stunt to avoid plunging into the water below. Terence Naphys was crossing New Jersey's Middle Thorofare Bridge with his family when its steel ramp began to lift beneath them. Mr Naphys was reportedly already near the centre of the bridge and was forced to accelerate his Toyota RAV 4 to jump the 6ft gap out of fear the car would fall 65ft into the deep bay below.
Let's be honest: at this point, we're all pretty accustomed to President Donald Trump's early morning tweets. But the president's attempts at being more professional on the social media platform were set on fire on Aug. 15 by two ill-advised retweets that put into question all of the motives behind Trump's silence on Charlottesville, VA. While both retweets were later removed from the @realDonaldTrump feed, reporters across the country started their day with a frankly terrifying look inside the president's thought process. The first accidental retweet was not as damning as the second but still bizarre in its own right as it was of a response to a Fox & Friends story about Trump pardoning former
Yhoana Arteaga was found bludgeoned to death in her family's mobile home with her clothing "in disarray", police said. There was no evidence of forced entry to the trailer in Nashville, Tennessee. The girl had suffered blunt force trauma to her body, police spokesman Don Aaron told a press conference.
Basketball superstar Charles Barkley called pushing for the removal of Confederate statues "wasted energy." "I'm not going to waste my time screaming at a neo-Nazi who's gonna hate me no matter what," the NBA Hall of Famer told WRBC-TV in Birmingham, Alabama. “I’m 54 years old,” Barkley said. “I’ve never thought about those statues a day in my life. I think if you ask most black people, to be honest, they ain’t thought a day in their life about those stupid statues.” Barkley has not minced words when pointing out what he sees as his black community's problems, such as last year when he spoke about violence against cops. “The cops have made some mistakes. Black people have made some mistakes,”
Aside from a few rare exceptions, most cruise ships are foreign-registered and thus, by law, must sail to at least one international destination. It’s always best to consult with the cruise line to know exactly what is needed for a particular cruise, but requirements could include not only passports but also additional visas. Hopefully, this one came up during your research of the cruise line itself, but in case it didn’t, be sure you fully understand exactly what is included in your fare.
Punters don’t get hit very often. As long as the punt gets off clean and there isn’t a long return, they’re usually in the clear. Maybe that’s why Indianapolis Colts punter Rigoberto Sanchez didn’t think to keep his head on a swivel after a punt in the third quarter of a preseason game. Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Noah Brown took advantage of that and demolished Sanchez with a blindside shot. Sanchez was able to walk off the field under his own power. Brown was a seventh-round pick for the Cowboys and probably didn’t help his case for a spot on the roster by picking up a 15-yard penalty for unnecessary roughness. He finished the Hall of Fame Game without a reception and had a fumble in his preseason
These excited pooches are flying without wings in this series of hilarious images.
