Dropping your cell phone into a toilet is unfortunate—but in China, it can be tragic. A young woman dropped her new phone into an
open-pit toilet and her husband was the first to jump into the knee-deep cesspool to try and find the phone. He started having difficulty breathing and then fainted! His mother then jumped in after him and she too fainted. The young woman herself was the third to jump in, and also fell unconscious. Both the husband and mother died of suffocation, and the father-in-law plus 2 neighbors also jumped in! Ultimately, villagers used a rope tied to rescuers who pulled all six people out of the pit. The woman who dropped the phone and one neighbor are still in intensive care. Let this be a lesson to you…always take your phone out of your back pocket before taking a trip to the loo!
A Florida man’s business partnership with his brother went to pot after he assaulted him. Rodney Brown and his older brother Jackie were working in their grow house when a verbal dispute got a little too heated and Rodney uprooted several of the three-foot-high pot plants in order to smack Jackie over the head. The elder Brown called cops to intervene –which they did and because growing marijuana in Florida is illegal the cops busted them for the 10 remaining plants and a wide range of drug paraphernalia.
Florida man Paul Kirleis called the Marco Island police about a suspicious vehicle and an officer responded on his department-issued phone. Following that conversation, Kirleis allegedly texted the officer “Who is this?” and those texts were followed up by a photo of a man in a thong and a picture of a man who looked like Kirleis bent over, naked and looking back at the camera. After the photos, the officer received another text that read, “Sooo.” Sooo…when officers contacted Kirleis about the texts, he told them he “was very intoxicated and did not remember much from the night.” Kirleis was charged with stalking and prohibition of certain acts in connection with obscene, lewd materials.
