A Connecticut baby has arrived with a splash! The baby’s father, David Davis, tells WVIT-TV that he was forced to deliver the newborn in the bathroom of his West Haven home Friday morning after his wife, Lillie, went into labor. He says the baby slipped through his hands during the delivery, but luckily had a safe landing in the toilet bowl! He says she began crying and it was the best sound he’d ever heard. Livia weighed in at 7 pounds, 6 ounces — soaking wet.
An Alabama man who went to the hospital for a routine circumcision says doctors mistakenly amputated his junk! Johnny Lee Banks Jr. of Birmingham and his wife, Zelda Banks, filed a lawsuit on Tuesday. The suit alleges it was there when they put him out and was gone when he awoke. It has caused the man extreme pain, and that his wife also is suffering. I bet! A hospital spokeswoman says the claims lack merit. Ummm if it’s really missing that’s all the merit it needs!
Known as the “underwear bomber” Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was caught trying to blow up a plane on Christmas Day in 2009 en route to the US from Amsterdam. The plane made an emergency landing in Detroit after the bomb failed to go off, instead causing a fire which left with burns to his groin. US officials traced the bomb plot to al Qaeda and at his trial the 25-year-old Nigerian called the bomb a “blessed weapon” to avenge the mistreatment of Muslims. John Pistole, head of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), told the Aspen Security Forum this week that the explosive device failed because of the length of time Abdulmutallab wore his underpants. Pistole said “The bomber had had the device with him for over two weeks.” Asked if this meant the bomb had become damp, he replied: “Let’s say it was degraded.”
