Acting Michigan State leader recovering at home after fall

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news Acting Michigan State leader recovering at home after fall fox-news/us/education/college fnc/us fnc EAST LANSING, Mich. Associated Press article 4759b647-6f80-5406-91cf-75d70abdfd8c

Michigan State University officials say interim President Satish Udpa is home from the hospital after falling on stage during commencement ceremonies.

The Detroit News reports Saturday that Udpa is recovering after what officials described as “a health incident” on Friday. A statement released by the East Lansing school says he is resting this weekend and will likely take some time off in the coming days.

The nature of Udpa’s health problem hasn’t been revealed.

Udpa, university administrator and former engineering dean, was named acting president in January after the forced resignation of interim President John Engler.

Engler was ousted after saying some victims enjoyed publicity from the scandal involving imprisoned sexual abuser Larry Nassar, a campus sports doctor.

Former Transportation Dept official compares Jacksonville Boeing 737 accident to ‘Miracle on the Hudson’

Former Deputy Assistant Transportation Secretary Oliver McGee told “Fox and Friends” that a contaminated runway was the culprit behind the Boeing 737 sliding into a river in Jacksonville, Florida on Friday — an event he compared to the Hudson River landing in 2009.

“I also call it a miracle in St. John,” he said, referring to the name of the river, “akin to the miracle in [the] Hudson with the great Captain Sully.”

Captain Chesley Sullenberger, or “Sully,” was the captain credited with saving all 155 people aboard a plane he was forced to land in the Hudson river in 2009.

During a news conference, Capt. Michael Connor, the commanding officer for the naval base where the plane landed, described the outcome as a “miracle.” “I think it is a miracle,” he said. “We could be talking about a different story this evening.”

Friday’s flight was carrying 136 passengers and seven crew members from Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. According to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, minor injuries were reported.

“We had a contaminated runway,” McGee said on Saturday. “That occurs when you have wet surfaces of about one-eighth of an inch of standing water and last night’s rains in Jacksonville was about one-half of an inch of standing water in 23 minutes.”

Although airlines typically plan for adverse weather, McGee indicated that the rainfall happened too quickly for pilots to adequately prepare.

“The weather was very severe … They most likely were on the way to their destination when this downpour came,” he said when co-host Ed Henry asked why the plane took off from Guantanamo in the first place.

Ex-high school football player who made headlines for being homeless charged with murdering girlfriend: police

A former high school football player who made headlines last year after he was not allowed to play because he was homeless has been charged with murdering his girlfriend.

Jamal Speaks, 19, of Palmer Park, Md., was arrested and charged with “first-degree murder, second-degree murder, assault and weapons charges,” Prince George’s Police Department said in a statement.

On April 7, police responded to calls at a home in Fort Washington and discovered Saniyah Floyd, 18, suffering from a gunshot wound. She was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.

“Initially, responding officers and detectives were advised by witnesses that the victim accidentally shot herself,” police said in a statement Friday. “An autopsy revealed that her wound could not have been self-inflicted, and the medical examiner ruled her death a homicide.”

Following an investigation, authorities discovered Speaks had illegally purchased a gun and “had been playing with the gun throughout the day.”

Police said the suspect “fired the weapon one time, striking the victim.” Authorities said Speaks tried to put the gun in the victim’s hand to make it seem as if she shot herself.

Speaks made headlines last year after multiple media outlets reported he was attempting to play on Ballou High School’s football team but was denied due to being homeless. Later, he was allowed to play, WJLA reported.

Speaks is in custody “on a no-bond status.”

The University of Alabama has bestowed an honorary doctorate degree to Autherine Lucy Foster, the first African American to attend the university.

Her brief enrollment came after a lengthy court battle. She had first applied to the university in 1952 after earning a degree in English from Miles College, but her acceptance was rescinded because she was not white. She enrolled at the university in 1956 but was expelled three days later after her presence brought crowds of protesters to campus.

African American students did not return to the campus until 1963.

Foster earned a master’s degree in education from the university in 1991, more than 35 years after attending her first class.

Worker found dead after Illinois plant explosion; 2 others believed dead as rescuers suspend search

Authorities searching for three missing workers after an explosion and fire at an Illinois silicone plant have recovered one body, according to reports.

The other two workers are believed dead and Waukegan Fire Marshal Steven Lenzi said Saturday that the search for their bodies was suspended due to concerns about the stability of the structure, the Chicago Sun-Times and other media reported.

The explosion at AB Specialty Silicones Friday shook homes surrounding the Waukegan plant, about 50 miles north of Chicago.

BUILDING ‘LEVELED’ IN EXPLOSION THAT ROCKS CHICAGO SUBURB; 3 MISSING, 4 HOSPITALIZED, REPORTS SAY

Nine employees were working at the time of the blast. Four were injured and two others declined medical treatment.

“The conditions are really rough in there,” Lenzi said. “There’s a lot of damage. There was a lot of fire throughout.”

TRUCK EXPLODES IN BURGER KING DRIVE-THRU

Lenzi said the cause of the explosion has not been determined, and it could be days before crews are able to resume their search because heavy piping and other materials that were inside the 30,000-foot structure pose a danger to firefighters and investigators.

He said the plant typically operates 24 hours a day, mixing chemicals and other materials to make silicone.

The state fire marshal is investigating, along with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Residents in the area said they heard the explosion and felt their homes shake. Five buildings nearby were damaged, with glass on windows and doors shattering, Lenzi said.

Nancy Carreno, who lives near the plant, told The Chicago Tribune the explosion didn’t break any windows but it was loud. She said electricity flickered then came back on.

Lenzi says more than 100 firefighters from at least 30 departments responded to the scene.

Two Florida teens have had their faith restored that “God saves” after they were rescued from the ocean last month by a yacht called “The Amen,” they said on “Fox and Friends” on Saturday.

High school seniors Tyler Smith and Heather Brown, who are both student-athletes at Christ’s Church Academy, said it never occurred to them that a strong current could sweep them away as they swam offshore from Vilano Beah, near St. Augustine.

FLORIDA TEENS STRANDED IN OCEAN SAVED BY BOAT NAMED ‘AMEN’ AFTER DESPERATE PRAYER FOR HELP

“We’re teenagers. We don’t think about currents or anything like that,” Smith said on Saturday. “We’re like, ‘oh we can do this easy’, so we just start swimming out.”

The pair were stranded in the ocean for two hours nearly two miles from shore and were losing hope as the waves became rougher and the red buoy they were relying on as a point of reference and potential safety mark became out of reach.

Smith’s legs also began to cramp from the swimming, he said.

“You can’t swim anymore because both of your legs are cramped. You’re hopeless.”

That’s when he turned to prayer.

“I started to cry out to god, like, please send something, please send someone or some miracle to come save us because I still want to see my family again,” Smith said.

That’s when it felt like a miracle occurred for the teens as a white yacht, “The Amen” emerged about 200 yards from the desperate pair.

“At some point, it felt like it came out of nowhere. We had seen a couple of boats pass really far away but when I looked up, I saw this big boat. It was a really nice boat. It was already closer than the other ones were from the start and I just had this feeling that I knew we were getting out of there,” Brown said.

She waved a stick that she found at the water and the boat’s Captain, Eric Wagner, was able to spot them. After calling the Coast Guard, his crew was able to pull the two to safety.

“Over all the wind, waves, and engines, we thought we heard a desperate scream,” Wagner told FOX 30 after their rescue. “Exhausted and near the end, the boy told me he called out for God’s help. Then we showed up.”

“God saves,” Smith said recalling the memory on Saturday.

A university in Ohio will remove from a campus theater the last name of an actress who starred in “The Birth of a Nation,” considered one of the most racist movies ever made.

The Blade reports Bowling Green State University trustees’ 7-0 vote Friday to drop the last name of actresses Dorothy and Lillian Gish comes after the school’s Black Student Union raised concerns when the little-used theater was relocated to the student union.

Lillian Gish starred in the 1915 silent film, which served as a tribute to the Ku Klux Klan and helped revive the white supremacist group.

A university task force issued a report last month saying the Gish name and displays about “The Birth of a Nation” contributed to an “intimidating, even hostile, educational environment.”

‘Fatal Attraction’ killer Carolyn Warmus granted parole, may be released from prison in June

The former New York schoolteacher who was convicted of killing her lover’s wife in 1992 in a sensational case dubbed the “Fatal Attraction” murder has been granted parole and could be released from prison as early as June.

Carolyn Warmus, 55, could be released from Bedford Hills prison as early as June 10 after a three-member panel of the state parole board granted her release.

Warmus was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison in 1992 for the murder of Betty Jeanne Solomon. Warmus, the daughter of a wealthy Michigan insurance executive, has always maintained her innocence. She told CBS 2 New York in an interview in 2016 that she was framed. She was denied parole when she first became eligible in 2017.

MAN FOUND DEAD, HANGING FROM OVERPASS AT NEW YORK’S CENTRAL PARK

Warmus was having an affair with Solomon’s husband, Paul Solomon, a fellow teacher at Greenville Elementary School in Edgemont, when she fired nine gunshots at Betty Jeanne Solomon in the victim’s home in Greenburgh, N.Y., on Jan. 15, 1989, prosecutors said.

The victim’s body was discovered by Paul Solomon following a night out with Warmus, the Journal News reported.

A key witness in the trial was New York City private investigator Vincent Parco, who testified that he had sold Warmus a .25-caliber handgun with a silencer days before the killing. Paul Solomon was initially a prime suspect in the death of his wife due to his “multiple affairs, questionable life insurance policy and a lucrative movie contract,” CBS 2 New York reported.

Paul Solomon declined to comment to the Journal News regarding Warmus’ parole.

The sensational case was covered by a number of media outlets and spurned two television films and a book. The case was dubbed the “Fatal Attraction” killing following the 1987 hit flick that starred Michael Douglas and Glenn Close.

Mayer Morganroth, an attorney for Warmus, said she has “significant health problems” and would not say where she would be living once she was released from prison, the Journal News reported.

“We are indeed pleased that release has been granted,” Morganroth said in a statement regarding the parole.

An infant and toddler were among 12 shooting victims in Baltimore Friday night.

The 1-year-old infant was shot in the leg; the 2-year-old baby was shot in the torso. Police said they were in stable condition, Fox 45 Baltimore reported.

Of the 10 other shooting victims, three went directly to the morgue for post-mortem exams.

“It’s upsetting to me, and I’m sure it’s upsetting to the law-abiding citizens of Baltimore, this level of violence,” the city’s new mayor Jack Young said in response to the shooting of the two young children, the Baltimore Sun reported.

The three fatal victims and the nine wounded victims were shot in five separate incidents, marring Young’s first full day as mayor. His predecessor Catherine Pugh resigned Thursday under a cloud of corruption and an FBI probe.

BALTIMORE STRUGGLING WITH SOARING CRIME, DRUGS AND INEPT POLITICAL LEADERS

Young is expected to be sworn-in next week and he said one of his biggest priorities will be reducing violence, WJZ-TV reported Friday.

The 1-year-old and the 2-year-old were among five people shot at an intersection in South Baltimore around 8:21 p.m., according to reports.

The other victims were a woman and two men who were being treated for gunshot wounds at hospitals. The women was shot in the neck.

“Two babies,” the Sun quoted people who gathered at the scene as saying.

“I mean who does that,” the paper quoted one of them Rhonda Orndoff as saying in response.

Baltimore City Councilman Brandon M. Scott tweeted: “All shootings are tragic but the shooting of our babies are the most heinous.”

Four of Friday’s 12 shooting victims, two men and two women, were shot and wounded in East Baltimore around 2:30 a.m., Fox 45 Baltimore reported.

Cops told the station three suspects were taken into custody and handguns were recovered. The suspects were in a car that flipped over when it struck another vehicle as it was fleeing the scene.

The killings Friday afternoon and Friday night around 10 p.m. were reported in three different Baltimore neighborhoods with the Sun citing cops as saying that the victims were a 29-year-old man, a 55-year-old man and a 21-year-old man.

A 90-year-old great-grandfather is about make history by becoming the oldest student to earn a bachelor’s degree from Northeastern Illinois University since the school started keeping records in 1962.

Bob Dwyer, an Army veteran and retired widower, will graduate with a degree in interdisciplinary studies on Monday.

Dwyer told the Chicago Tribune that “education is always a plus and we can never have too much of it.”

Dwyer says he decided to enroll in college after his wife died in 2010.

One of Dwyer’s professors at Northeastern says he believes other students benefit from having a fellow student with more life experience.

Dwyer says he intends to slow down after graduation since school has been a “24/7” endeavor.
