Utah man, 18, survives 150-foot fall from drainage tunnel, investigators say

An 18-year-old Utah man was recovering after he trespassed into a drainage tunnel that let out over a cliff — and fell 150 feet after walking out the other side, investigators said.

Preston Harward was hiking with a group of friends on July 19 when he fell over a cliff at Spanish Fork Canyon, the Utah County Sheriff’s Office wrote on Facebook.

The department said he was “lucky to be alive.”

Harward suffered broken ribs and other bones and his stomach went up into his diaphragm, Fox 13 Salt Lake City reported.

“I just looked down and realized that I had pretty much sprinted and jumped out of this tunnel straight off of this cliff,” he told the station. “I genuinely thought I was going to die.”

The sheriff’s office said a 21-year-old man died there in 2012 after falling from the same spot.

Rescue teams used a helicopter and were able to reach Harward after about an hour and a half, Fox 13 reported. He arrived at a hospital in critical condition.

The department posted pictures and video of the drop from the end of the tunnel where Harward fell.

It was illegal to enter the tunnel, the sheriff’s office said. The department posted multiple photos of the area showing fences surrounding the site and several “No Trespassing” signs. Some signs were covered with graffiti.

But, Harward told Fox 13 he was unaware they were trespassing and didn’t see any signs. He said the area was “a really popular spot.”

Investigators said they were hoping to work with the county to make it clear to avoid the tunnel.

1998 Arkansas school shooter killed in car crash 20 years later

A Missouri man who was 11 when he shot and killed four students and a teacher in Jonesboro, Arkansas, in 1998, was killed in a car crash Saturday night in Independence County, Ark., according to state police.

The two-vehicle crash unfolded near Cave City, about 100 miles northeast of Little Rock. Drew Grant, 33, who had changed his name from Andrew Golden, had been released from prison in 2007.

Daniel Petty, 59, of Essex, Missouri, was going south on Highway 167 in a Chevy Tahoe when he drove left of the center-line and hit Grant’s Honda CRV head-on at around 9 p.m., investigators said.

Petty also died. Paramedics rushed three other people to hospitals in Little Rock and Batesville, according to KAIT and a state police preliminary summary of the crash. The conditions of the injured were unknown.

Golden and Mitchell Johnson were 11 and 13 when they set off a fire alarm at Westside Middle School in Jonesboro. As kids and faculty were evacuating, they shot and killed four students, including 12-year-olds Paige Herring and Stephanie Johnson; 11-year-olds Brittney Varner and Natalie Brooks; and teacher Shannon Wright.

In 2017, a judge presiding over a lawsuit filed by the victims’ families awarded them $150 million in damages.

Golden and Johnson were tried as juveniles and were expected to remain in custody until the age of 21, in accordance with Arkansas law at the time. Johnson was released in 2005 and Golden was released in 2007. Because they were tried as juveniles, their records were sealed.

Judge orders Louisiana man’s mouth taped shut after he interrupts sentencing hearing

A Louisiana man had his mouth taped shut by a 15th Judicial District Judge, after he repeatedly interrupted during a sentencing hearing on July 18 in Lafayette.

Westlake Legal Group Gavel-split Judge orders Louisiana man's mouth taped shut after he interrupts sentencing hearing fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/louisiana fox-news/us/crime fox-news/us fox news fnc/us fnc David Aaro article 6bbab10c-f0a4-5d5f-8e3f-29d58c3acc45

During a hearing of Michael C. Duhon, who was convicted of money laundering and theft of over 25,000 in February 2019, Judge Marilyn Castle asked a bailiff to tape his mouth shut while witnesses were on the stand. (iStock)

During a hearing of Michael C. Duhon, who was convicted of money laundering and theft of more than $25,000 in February 2019, Judge Marilyn Castle asked a bailiff to tape his mouth shut while witnesses were on the stand.

Her actions stemmed from objections raised by Duhon when Castle had asked him to stop submitting motions on his own behalf, instead of his lawyer, Aaron Adams. Duhon later objected when evidence was submitted in the case and he also tried to argue against the inclusion of evidence but was told again to speak through his attorney, according to The Acadiana Advocate.

EX-COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER, 22, ACCUSED OF KILLING 3 AT RANDOM IN LOUISIANA IS DENIED BAIL

After requesting twice for Duhon to remain silent, Castle finally had enough and ordered his mouth shut.

“During testimony of Tanya Ortego, the Court ordered the Bailiff to tape the defendant’s mouth due to the defendant’s consistent interruption of this court proceeding and multiple instructions from the Court to remain silent,” the minutes said.

Defense attorney Adams objected to the use of duct tape on his client, which was removed following his request. The minutes didn’t say how long the duct tape stayed on Duhon’s mouth, although he did ask the judge to remove Duhon from the courtroom instead of using the primitive method.

The incident also caused a public defender who was present during the ordeal to be charged with contempt after he recorded the series of events. Public defender Michael Gregory was ordered to appear in court last Friday with Castle presiding over the hearing, even though he wasn’t connected with the case or Duhon.

The court order given to Gregory said he violated district court rules “by broadcasting, televising, recording or taking photographs in the courtroom” because he recorded “a portion of the court proceedings during a sentencing hearing and broadcast those proceedings to others.”

LOUISIANA TEEN, 19, DIES DAYS AFTER BEING PULLED UNDER BY RIP CURRENT AT FLORIDA BEACH

Castle ruled that Gregory was in contempt of court and ordered him to not bring his cellphone or any electronic devices to court for six months and required him to pay a $100 fine, according to KATC.

Duhon was sentenced by Castle to 11 years in prison during the hearing with credit for time served and he was recommended by the judge to be taken to a mental health facility.

Castle’s secretary said the judge “can’t comment because the Code of Judicial Conduct prohibits her from commenting on ongoing proceedings.”

The use of duct tape is controversial but has been allowed in the past. In 1970, the United States Supreme Court ruled a trial judge could gag a defendant during trial, so they could remain in the courtroom without disturbing the proceedings.

Four teens killed, 1 injured in western New York vehicle crash after running stop sign

A vehicle in western New York ran a stop sign and struck a tree, killing four teens, authorities said Sunday.

New York State Police said the crash, which was reported at 4:30 a.m. Saturday in the town of Burns, also injured a 16-year-old girl who was a passenger in the front seat and was the only one of the five teens in the vehicle wearing a seat belt.

“We are deeply saddened to share the tragic news that three Dansville High School students lost their lives early Saturday morning in a motor vehicle accident, the Dansville School District said Saturday.

In lieu of gifts, a Florida couple asked for something a little different on their wedding day.

Matt and Kelli Cameron, of Tampa, asked their friends and family not for presents to start their new life together, but for school supplies for around 70 local children.

ALABAMA TEACHER WHO RAN OUT OF SICK DAYS CARING FOR YOUNG DAUGHTER WITH CANCER GETS BIG GIFT FROM COLLEAGUES

“We knew we didn’t need much of anything. Anything we did need, we could handle on our own,” Kelli, a teacher, told WTVT. “We started thinking of different charitable acts we could do, and as a teacher, I really liked the school supply idea. So I talked about it with Matt, and we decided on the idea.”

Matt said he “wasn’t a fan of the whole wedding gift idea, or wedding in general,” and so asking their guests to help children “worked out well.”

Each guest who attended their June nuptials was asked to consider donating a backpack full of the supplies.

Kelli, who has worked as a teacher for seven years, said everyone “got a little description of who they were buying for and what size they were for uniforms, and what grade they were in for school supplies that were needed.”

The supplies were donated to Booker T. Washington Elementary School in Tampa, the news outlet reported. Kelli said the school she works at didn’t need help, so she reached out to the elementary school to see what they needed.

“Being a teacher, I know a lot of kids come with nothing to school,” Kelli said. “And you see the kids so excited about the little things: a backpack, or new shoes. It’s so important that they can start school excited, and a lot of teachers spend their own money for their kids. This helped out a little bit.”

Snake on arm makes for rude awakening for hotel guest in Tennessee

A Tennessee woman who stayed at a hotel in the state reportedly woke up Friday morning with a snake on her arm.

“I felt something across my arm this morning,” Melinda Major told FOX 13 Memphis. “I looked over and it was a snake. It was laid out across my arm.”

Major said she quickly shook the garden snake off.

“It landed back on the bed,” she said, “and I jumped up on the desk and called the front office for them to come.”

Newborn found dead inside Applebee’s restroom in Texas

Police in Texas are reportedly searching for a mother who allegedly gave birth in the women’s restroom of an Applebee’s restaurant and left her baby in a trashcan Friday afternoon.

The newborn was found dead at the Irving, Texas, restaurant when an employee came in to clean the restroom about 30 minutes after the mother left, Irving police said, according to FOX 4 in Dallas.

“This kind of incident is very tragic,” Irving police Officer Robert Reeves, said. “It strikes everybody in their family. Everybody’s heart goes out when you hear an infant is deceased.

Investigators are also looking at surveillance video and speaking to witnesses to try to locate the suspect, FOX 4 reported.

It’s unclear if the baby was alive when it was born.

Dad who left twins in hot car is an Iraq war vet described as an ‘amazing’ father

Westlake Legal Group ac0a8d5c-gg Dad who left twins in hot car is an Iraq war vet described as an ‘amazing’ father Tina Moore New York Post Georgett Roberts fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-york fnc/us fnc Daniel Cassady article 915c1142-40bf-5a7f-9127-0984e1ab5b43

By all accounts, he was a doting dad to his year-old, twin son and daughter, setting up a bouncy castle in the yard for their recent first birthday party and dressing them in their latest cute outfits while his wife made breakfast in their Rockland County split-level.

Then, on Saturday, Juan Rodriguez, 39, was hauled handcuffed before a judge, charged with the babies’ hot-car deaths.

He forgot to drop them off at their day care Friday morning, Rodriguez has told cops — and didn’t realize they were still in the back seat when he parked at the Bronx hospital where he’s a social worker, court papers reveal.

KIDS LEFT IN CARS A GROWING CONCERN AMID SUMMER’S SCORCHING TEMPERATURES

Eight hours later, the twins, Luna and Phoenix, registered an internal temperature of 108 degrees when coroners examined their bodies in their car seats.

“I assumed I dropped them off at day care before I went to work,” Rodriguez told cops at the scene, according to the criminal complaint against him.

“I blanked out!” he cried.

“My babies are dead! I killed my babies!”

“I assumed I dropped them off at day care before I went to work. I blanked out. My babies are dead! I killed my babies!”

— Juan Rodriguez, Iraq war vet charged in deaths of twins

Rodriguez was still sobbing at his arraignment Saturday night before Bronx Criminal Court Justice Patsy Goldborne.

A disabled Iraq war veteran, he still wore the same turquoise blue polo shirt he’d worn Friday as he cared for homeless and ailing vets at his job at a VA hospital in Kingsbridge — oblivious that his twins were in the back seat of his Honda Accord in the parking lot.

“He carried on with his day,” Assistant District Attorney Jaime Breslin told the judge.

“He forgot his children in the seats.”

“This is a tragedy of horrific proportions,” his lawyer, Joey Jackson, told the judge, who set bail at $100,000.

Two hours later, Rodriguez made bail and was released to his cheering, weeping family members.

Rodriguez exchanged a tight embrace with his crying wife, Marissa — the twins’ mother — when he was released.

INFANT TWINS FOUND DEAD, ‘FOAMING AT THE MOUTH,’ IN BACK OF CAR: POLICE

The mother had come to court wearing all black, and with the couple’s surviving child, a 4-year-old boy, in tow.

The dad had dropped the boy off at a different day care before forgetting the twin babies, officials said.

The mom held the boy on her lap as she waited in a second-floor holding area for the arraignment to begin. With her were some two dozen family members and friends.

At one point, the mom broke into loud, hysterical sobs as she embraced a female relative.

At another point, Rodriguez’s mother, Cathelina Valerio, cried out, “Mis nietos! Mis nietos!” — my grandchildren — as she hugged a male family member.

“Do you know what I’m scared of?” she told The Post. “When he gets out, he can’t handle it. He’s going to need help.”

It was a horrific double death — a baby brother and sister, side by side and helpless, as the temperature in the parked vehicle spiked.

It was also a tragedy made inexplicable by Rodriguez’s reputation as a caring father.

How could a dad whose social media is crammed with photos of him snuggling with Luna and Phoenix — and who neighbors universally describe as loving and attentive — have forgotten his twin treasures, all day, in the back seat of his car?

“This was just a horrible mistake,” neighbor Tony Caterino, 45, said of Rodriguez. “That one time you make a mistake, and you have to live with it for the rest of your life.”

On Friday morning, Rodriguez had driven to work, as usual, from his home in New City, a middle-class, heavily wooded suburb an hour’s drive north of the city.

Video shows it was 8:22 a.m. when he parked in the hospital parking lot, police sources said.

The video shows him returning at one minute before 4 p.m.

Rodriguez started the car and drove north toward home — only to pull over less than 10 minutes later, while still in The Bronx, on Kingsbridge Terrace.

“I left them in the car!” he began screaming.

Witnesses called 911; arriving medics could not revive the babies and they were pronounced dead at the scene.

Family friend Temple Barros, 41, who lives with the family, told The Post that Rodriguez routinely took the twins to a day care in the mornings.

The twins would stay there throughout the day, Barros said, as Rodriguez was at his hospital job and Marissa worked as a tourism and travel sales manager at the Empire City Casino in Yonkers.

And while Barros didn’t see Rodriguez and the twins leave the house Friday, it would have been the dad, not the mother, who put them in the car, he said.

“An amazing guy,” Barros told The Post of Rodriguez.

“He’s always been there for his kids. Always. This is just a horrible situation,” he said. “The family isn’t doing so well,” he added.Rodriguez was “always doing things with the kids,” Caterino, the neighbor, said.

“Always in the yard playing. They had a big camp-out last weekend, with tents in the back yard.

“He would always play catch or basketball with his older kids,” Caterino said of Rodriguez’s two older sons from a prior marriage.

“I just can’t wrap my head around it,” said another neighbor, Paul Barlett, 39. “No one here can believe it.”

Shooting at block party leaves 11 injured, one dead

A “brazen” lone gunman opened fire at a massive Brownsville, Brooklyn, block party on Saturday night, leaving a 38-year-old man dead and 11 others injured, law enforcement sources told The Post.

The gunfire erupted just before 11 p.m. as the annual two-day “Old Timers Day” party was ending and thousands of attendees were leaving, the sources said.

The violence was preliminarily blamed on a single shooter who remained at large early Sunday, and who had begun blasting into the crowd despite a contingent of some 100 cops monitoring the event, the sources said.

“I’ve never heard of 12 people shot in one incident — ever,” one veteran investigator told The Post of the bloodshed at Mendoza Park at Christopher and Hegeman avenues.

“This is one of the worst, most brazen shootings I’ve ever seen.”

The injured were rushed to nearby Brookdale Hospital and to Kings County Hospital.

By midnight, detectives had found one abandoned firearm and were combing the ground for more evidence among hundreds of scattered beer bottles, cans, cups and other debris.

The party is in its 56th year and features concerts, food and exhibitions.

Attendees travel from across the country to attend.

“I heard shots and I ducked,” said one 66-year-old man who was at the party.

“When I stuck my head up, and the smoke cleared, it was pure pandemonium,” said the man, who asked not to be named.

“It was chaos,” said Gary Miller, 60, a vendor at the party.People were breaking down, having outbursts,” he said.

“We were enjoying the evening and all of a sudden shots rang out,” he remembered.

“Shots rang out and the crowd was already dispersing and you heard about 9 to 11 shots and everyone was running and scattering for cover.”

“We had a terrible shooting in Brownsville tonight that shattered a peaceful neighborhood event,” Mayor de Blasio tweeted at close to 1 a.m.

The shooting happened in the same precinct where the first of four water-dousing attacks on cops broke out on the previous Saturday.
