A utility worker in New Jersey had a shockingly-close encounter Monday after a powerline caught fire as it struck the wet ground after a storm.

The Manchester Police Department said in a Facebook post the incident happened at the intersection of State Highway 70 and Colonial Drive in Manchester Township, located about 60 miles south of New York City.

“Last night was quite SHOCKING for some of our midnight officers!” the department said.

As the wire falls to the wet ground, it suddenly explodes into a fireball.

“Luckily, he was wearing proper safety equipment,” police said.

Manchester Township Police Sgt. Christopher Hemhauser told WCAU-TV he and another officer had to flee earlier that night from the same intersection when an arcing transformer sent sparks flying.

He also witnessed the second explosion, and said the utility worker was “definitely startled.”

“It’s just a reminder of how dangerous electricity really is,” he told the television station.

Carnival Cruise Lines is apologizing to passengers who say they were left out in the cold – or rather, the heat – after the boarding of their ship was reportedly delayed for hours on Sunday.

“Embarkation at Port Miami for Sunday’s voyage of Carnival Magic was delayed due to several factors, including late debarkation from a previous voyage,” the cruise line wrote in a statement obtained by Fox News. “Carnival sincerely apologizes for this inconvenience and appreciates our guests’ patience and understanding.”

CARNIVAL CRUISES FACE POSSIBLE BAN FROM U.S. PORTS

Some of the passengers waiting to board the ship, which was bound for the Western Caribbean, complained of having to wait in the heat with their children.

“This is my first cruise so i have no idea how its done but this is obviously not fun,” one passenger told WPLG.

“It’s horrible. There’s people out here sweating, sunburning. There’s kids that are overheated and cranky,” said another who spoke with WSVN.

A Twitter user had also compared the long wait to the doomed Fyre Festival, while claiming that there were “people passing out all over from the heat.”

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue crews had also reportedly responded to treat at least a few passengers, according to WSVN. The nature of their illnesses was not disclosed.

Guests were said to have been offered water while waiting in line, as well as free lunch at a nearby marketplace at Port Miami before boarding eventually began at 4 p.m., reports indicate.

Miami police have charged a jewelry store owner with falsely reporting an armed heist in which the robber made off with four gold bars worth $80,000, according to a report.

Levon Papikyan, owner of Deroso Jewelry, claimed being pepper sprayed during the Feb. 21 stickup, NBC 6 Miami reported Monday.

“At this point we can say he lied and we did charge him legitimately with filing a false police report,” Miami police spokeswoman Kenia Fallat told the station. The charge is a misdemeanor.

Papikyan denied lying to police as he walked away from a reporter who approached him at his business.

Argentine businessman Juan Leiva and another person had just given Papikyan the gold bars to sell on their behalf, according to the station.

“It is serious money that I lost and now I’m trying to recover it, if possible,” Leiva told the station through an interpreter. “I thought that in Miami I could be sure there wouldn’t be these kinds of problems. But I was wrong.”

Libya’s PM warns of fresh migrant crisis in Europe if political instability continues

Libya’s prime minister says unless his country finds political stability, more than 800,000 migrants could make their way into Europe – creating even more of a crisis.

In recent months, there has been frantic fighting on the perimeter of the city and thousands of civilians have abandoned their homes to escape the violence.

IN LIBYA A ROGUES’ GALLARY OF MILITIAS PREPARE FOR WAR

Fighters loyal to Fayez al-Sarraj have been trying to stop an advancing army commanded by Khalifa Haftar, a warlord who served under Libya’s former Colonel Muammar Qaddafi. Haftar launched a surprise offensive to retake Tripoli on April 5.

Sarraj runs the government in Tripoli, the authority west of Libya, which is recognized by the United Nations, while Haftar has set up a rival administration in the east from his base in Benghazi.

Haftar’s forces have been accused of launching bombs and rocket attacks on schools, homes and offices. The general himself has declared that he’s clearing the capital of “terrorists.”

It’s a threat Sarraj pushes back strongly on and says the bombings are a thinly-disguised military power grab.

“Has Tripoli all of a sudden become a terrorist city?” he told Sky News. “And are all its residents now terrorists? Are Abu Salim residents who were bombed yesterday now terrorists? Or those living in Ain Zara, or Sawani? Are all of these terrorists? Or are these crimes against humanity? Isn’t it time now to call it as it is?”

IVANKA TRUMP EYES LAWS, CONDITIONS THAT DETER AFRICAN WOMEN

Sarraj said that while the ultimate goal is peace, he added: “If we are forced to fight, we are up for the fight.”

Sarraj, an architect who got into politics during his 50s, is calling on the international community to “pressurize these forces and call it by its name and pressurize them to go back where they came from.”

The prime minister also wants the fighters who are carrying out the attacks on civilians to be tried for crimes against humanity and for Heftar to be held accountable.

Sarraj also warned of a migrant crisis if the international community doesn’t step in and help.

“What’s going to happen with this security breakdown is that 800,000 illegal migrants on Libyan ground will have to leave Libya and will cross the sea towards Europe,” he said. “Amongst these 800,000 there are terrorists and criminals. This will be disastrous”.

Syria, Iran say US is waging ‘economic terrorism’

Syria and Iran say the United States is waging “economic terrorism” against countries that have different opinions and should pursue its aims through diplomacy instead.

Syrian state news agency SANA quoted President Bashar Assad as saying that the Trump administration’s decision to designate Iran’s Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization was an “irresponsible move.” Assad spoke at a meeting Tuesday with Iran’s visiting Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who said the U.S. move was “stupid.”

Syria is in the grip of a severe fuel crisis aggravated by sanctions on the Assad government and Iran, its close ally.

Zarif resigned in February after being kept in the dark about a surprise visit by Assad to Tehran, but Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani rejected his resignation and he remained in his post.

‘Disaster worse than Chernobyl’ looms as ancient anthrax spores could be blasted into the sky by ‘frozen methane bombs’, scientists warn

Prehistoric diseases laying dormant in ancient ice could soon be unleashed due to climate change.

Cities built on permafrost in Russia are now seeing temperatures which could destroy their infrastructure and result in anthrax poisoning.

In some parts of Russia, anthrax is known as the “Siberian plague”.

This is because the anthrax bacteria, which can occur naturally in the soil, has been killing livestock and people there for hundreds of years.

Anthrax and other deadly disease-causing bacteria can lie dormant in permafrost or ice and will only be released if melting occurs.

Permafrost is a thick layer of soil below the ground which has remained frozen for longer than two years.

Two-thirds of Russia’s territory is permafrost, which can be hundreds of feet deep.

An anthrax poisoning event which occurred 70 years ago in the Arctic region of Yamal in Russia, has already been linked to rising temperatures.

This incident results in the deaths of an estimated 2,000 reindeer and the hospitalization of 96 people.

A 12-year-old boy also died at the time because he ate some venison infected with anthrax.

Experts at the time concluded that the “appearance of anthrax was stimulated by the activation of ‘old’ infection sites following anomalously high air temperature and the thawing of the sites to a depth beyond normal levels.”

Ancient mass “cattle graves” dug deep into permafrost may be of increasing risk to life as temperatures rise and water running through these regions carries deadly bacteria to new areas.

The locations of these cattle graves are kept a secret but experts are calling for the potential spread of bacteria from these grave sites to human populations and livestock to be closely monitored.

Other old diseases such as smallpox and the Spanish flu could also be awoken in the warming temperatures.

Scientists also fear that the diseases could be spread all over the world due to craters in the Serbian permafrost known as frozen “methane bombs” which could erupt if they thaw.

Biologist Boris Kershengolts told the Telegraph: “If the area of these emissions overlaps with the burials of animals or humans who died from diseases in previous centuries, these spores and pathogens could spread over a huge area. It would be a disaster not just for the Arctic. The catastrophe could exceed Chernobyl.

A California teacher who sued the state’s teachers’ association has claimed that unions are working with far-left groups to push and fund their “political agenda” on kids in public schools.

Rebecca Friedrichs, the author of “Standing up to Goliath,” and educator of 28 years is now telling fellow teachers across the nation about the unions and their right to opt out of funding.

REBECCA FRIEDRICHS: PRO-LIFE TEACHERS, YOUR UNION DUES FUND ABORTION

“What’s shocking,” Friedrichs told “Fox & Friends” Tuesday morning, “is teachers have no idea. People think teachers are these far-left people pushing this stuff. That is a lie. Most teachers are good, loving people… but we are being used by very powerful organizations – teachers unions collect about $5 billion tax-free every year from teachers – and they use that money to put their social, sexual, and political agenda into our schools.”

The pro-life Christian educator said she was forced for almost three decades to fund the teachers union.

STUDENTS, ALUMNI OUTRAGED, ‘SHAKING’ AFTER VICE PRESIDENT PENCE INVITED TO GIVE COMMENCEMENT 

But all that changed on June 27, 2018, in a landmark 5-4 decision in Janus v. American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees scrapped a 41-year-old decision that had allowed states to require public employees to pay some fees to unions that represent them.

“Now all teachers across the country – in fact, all government employees – are now free to pay unions nothing,” Friedrichs said. “We’re still unionized. We’re still forced to accept their representation. They’re still bullying us and steamrollering us, but we don’t have to pay them any longer and I hope and pray that teachers will stand together and stop paying them, and I’m hoping we can eventually get them out of our schools.”

Friedrichs called the teachers unions “very deceptive” and said they “outright lie” to public school teachers.

“My whole agenda in life right now is to get out and educate teachers on the truth so that they can have liberty,” Friedrichs concluded, “so they can choose for themselves what they want to do.”

Retired Army Sgt. Stefan LeRoy has been through it all and, again, on Monday achieved greatness by finishing the Boston Marathon.

LeRoy, who lost both of his legs from an IED blast in Afghanistan in 2012, ran on prosthetic limbs for the fourth time and finished the competition. He appeared on “Fox and Friends” on Tuesday and told host Ainsley Earhardt how he was able to keep going despite the setbacks he’s faced.

MARINE RUNNING BOSTON MARATHON FOR FALLEN COMRADES CRAWLS ACROSS FINISH LINE

“I’ve had some amazing guides along the course. It’s really great to have that support on the course. It is definitely frustrating at times,” LeRoy told Earhardt. “I go through a lot of pain on the course. My residual limbs don’t want to complete a marathon. So I just have to push through and it’s great to have that support and encouragement and that guidance on the course as well.”

LeRoy explained he initially started competing at the Boston Marathon as a hand cyclist in 2013. He said he did hand cycling as a way to stay fit and stay “mentally active.”

This year’s Boston Marathon was different because of the weather, LeRoy said.

“It’s great to have all those crowds back out there who brave the rain at the end and Boston is fantastic for all that amazing support. We were really lucky to have a great day yesterday,” he said.

LeRoy said he hopes to run again next year.

This year’s race was won by Kenya’s Lawrence Cherono with a time of 2 hours, 7 minutes 57 seconds.

‘Devil’ caught on camera pouring acid on car

There’s a demon on the loose in England who’s been spotted pouring acid on a car while wearing a devil mask and black wig.

The attack in the Gloucester town of St. Briavels was reportedly captured on security camera, and it wasn’t the only one.

There have been six similar acts of vandalism in the village of 1,000 residents over the past 18 months, and a 2,000 pounds ($2,600) reward is now being offered for information leading to the culprits.

John Hurley was the latest victim last month, when he found his Renault covered in the gel-like acid.

“Luckily I was aware of the previous attacks so as soon as I saw it I knew straight away what it was,” he told SWNS.

“If I hadn’t known and touched it, it would have been disastrous. I teach music and the acid would have damaged my fingers.”

The goo had stripped paint, corroded the windshield wipers and even dissolved a plastic spatula being used to try to take it off.

There was no evidence of who was responsible, but a neighbor whose Land Rover was previously damaged caught two suspects on video.

“One was a stout bald middle-aged man wearing glasses, accompanied by a tallish middle-aged woman who was wearing a devil’s mask, black curly wig, a poncho and boots with a distinctive thick white sole,” the anonymous victim said.

The mask and wig were later discovered and are now in the hands of investigators.

Another resident’s security camera spotted someone wearing a hoodie pouring acid on their car, sparking fears that there is a gang or copycats behind the attacks.

“My wife or I could have easily disturbed them during the attack and been seriously injured or maimed for life.”

Along with the vandalism, residents have also reported finding pornography that had been slipped into the mail slots of their homes and suspect that the two are related.

Acid attacks on people are a not uncommon occurrence in England, and recent changes to the law have reclassified such substances as weapons, which can lead to a six-month prison sentence for anyone even threatening to use them in that capacity.

Lori Loughlin’s ‘options are limited’ after pleading not guilty in college admissions scam, legal experts say

After reportedly rejecting a plea deal for the fraud charges she’s currently facing in the wildly publicized college admissions scandal, Lori Loughlin pleaded not guilty on Monday to the two charges against her — a move many say was her only play.

“She can enter a plea of guilty or not guilty, I mean her options are limited. It’s that simple,” California-based attorney Lara Yeretsian told Fox News on Monday. “Since she doesn’t have a negotiated plea, her only remaining option would have been not guilty. She’s not going to go and say I’m guilty if she doesn’t have a negotiated plea in place that she’s happy with.”

LORI LOUGHLIN APPEARED ‘ARROGANT’ IN COURT WHILE FELICITY HUFFMAN LOOKED ‘MORE GENUINE,’ SAYS SKETCH ARTIST

Former New York State prosecutor Adam Citron echoed the sentiments of Yeretsian that Loughlin’s only move at this juncture was to enter a plea of not guilty, adding that once the “Fuller House” actress turned her nose at the initial offer, it was the prosecution’s duty to bring forth an indictment.

“This was totally expected and normal operating procedure. Once Loughlin rejected the initial pre-indictment plea offer, and the prosecutor went forward and secured a formal indictment, procedure requires a formal arraignment on the indictment,” Citron explained to Fox News on Monday.

“Loughlin’s plea of not guilty was expected and again procedural in nature. It in no way signals that she will not later decide to take a plea deal and plead guilty. This plea of not guilty in no way forecloses her from later accepting a plea offer and pleading guilty. That being said, one must be offered by the prosecution. To that end, this not guilty plea does not foreclose her, through her attorneys, from attempting to negotiate a post-indictment plea arrangement with the prosecution.”

Furthermore, Yeretsian believes Loughlin is under pressure to reach a plea agreement now more than ever since she was hit with an additional charge for money laundering last week and is now facing 40 years behind bars.

“It’s all in the hands of the two parties – which is the prosecution and her defense lawyer. Clearly, there’s a lot more pressure on her at this point to cut a plea,” said Yeretsian. “She was in a better place initially with just the one charge of mail fraud that she was looking at, but since nothing happened they must have been at an impasse with the prosecution asking her being stuck in a certain guideline range where she was probably looking at real time in custody, and I’m guessing that was the issue. But now it’s worse because she’s looking at more time, unfortunately for her.

“They could still agree to allow her to plead to the first original count, and some of the points she could get for adjustments, for her role in the offense – being a minor role in the overall conspiracy, and acceptance of responsibility – they could potentially get her where she was originally, which was in the 21 to 27-month range.”

She continued: “All we’ve heard about her have been good things and I know of at least one, possibly two of her actress colleagues have come out in her support. So clearly, this was just abhorrent behavior on her part,” Yeretsian explained.

The super lawyer noted that Loughlin’s lack of criminal history and community involvement could serve as a factor in determining her punishment at any sentencing and indicated that any decision is essentially at the judge’s discretion.

“As a human being, she comes across as a good person and I’m sure there’s plenty of community work that she’s done – and what she has done, despite how some people have reacted to it – it really was all about her children and she’s not doing anything malicious or trying to hurt somebody. So I think a lot of this will factor in even at sentencing, even if she ends up being in the guideline range, she could end up getting something less than that, even potential electronic monitoring. It’s all really, in the end, up to the judge.”

Prosecutors are seeking four to 10 months of confinement, and experts differ on whether the plea, and Huffman’s subsequent apology taking full responsibility for her actions, will lead to a career rebound or retreat.

Loughlin’s fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli also has yet to admit any guilt. Meanwhile, the other celebrity mom involved — Felicity Huffmanhas already agreed to plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud.

“I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions,” Huffman’s statement, which was released last week, read.

“I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community. I want to apologize to them and, especially, I want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices to support their children and do so honestly.”

Citron also maintains “We are still a long way from a trial. Formal Discovery must take place, pre-trial motions and hearings must be had before a trial is conducted.”
