Dead body trapped in Tijuana pump station causes 14.5M gallons of raw sewage to spill into San Diego, officials say

A dead body, found trapped in a Mexican pump station on Sunday, was deemed responsible for a backup that caused nearly 14.5 million gallons of raw sewage to flow from Tijuana into San Diego, according to border water officials.

Mexico’s International Boundary Water Commission (CILA) told its U.S. counterparts that a cleanup crew at a pump station found the body in a sewage intake screens, San Diego’s KGTV reported.

The corpse caused trash to build up and plug the structure and overflow into the U.S., according to the U.S. section of the International Boundary and Water Commission.

Between 9 p.m. Saturday and 8 p.m. the next day, nearly 14.5 million gallons of treated and untreated wastewater flowed from Tijuana into the Tijuana River Valley in San Diego, according to officials.

It was unclear how the body ended up there. Police on Monday cordoned off the area as an investigation proceeded, USIBWC’s Dawi Dakhil said told KGTV.

Mexico water officials had cleared the scene by Monday, having rebuilt a temporary raised bank to stop the overflow, KGTV reported.

The incident was nothing new for San Diego, which has been dealing with raw sewage flows from Tijuana for decades. Last year, a pipe across the border in Mexico broke, causing millions of gallons of sewage to flow into the Tijuana River and then to the Pacific Ocean, impacting California coastal areas.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., last week secured nearly $20 million in federal funding aimed at helping California prevent such overflows from Tijuana.

Philadelphia mom admits to shooting and killing husband, two young daughters, police say

A Philadelphia mother is facing murder charges Wednesday after police say she admitted to shooting and killing her husband and two daughters – the youngest only 10 months old.

The suspect, identified by Fox 29 as Damyrra Jones, was found lying face down Monday following the incident with a gunshot wound to the head and a firearm in her hand, the station says. Police believe the gunshot wound was self-inflicted – and the 28-year-old was taken a local hospital in critical condition, where she has been held in custody ever since.

“While being transported to Jefferson Torresdale Hospital in the back of a fire rescue unit, she admitted to shooting everyone and demanded not to be resuscitated,” Homicide Capt. Jason Smith said, according to the Associated Press.

He added that there had been “domestic discord” between the couple over child support payments.

Officers say they were called to a row home in northeast Philadelphia shortly before 10 p.m. Monday where they found a 38-year-old man dead of a gunshot wound to the head. A 4-year-old girl and a 10-month-old girl also shot in the head were rushed to a local children’s hospital, but were pronounced dead shortly afterward.

A 9mm handgun found at the scene had been legally purchased by the mother the day before the shooting, Smith said.

A neighbor also told Fox 29 that there “was literally a fight every single day” at the home.

The mother will be charged with three counts of murder, child endangerment and possessing an instrument of crime, Smith says, adding that she is “expected to survive.”

Massachusetts police used sock to calm emu that ‘terrorized’ community

A Massachusetts community can sleep a little easier after a high-stakes police operation Monday nabbed a menace that had “terrorized” locals: an emu.

Police officers in Franklin, a city roughly 45 miles south of Boston, spotted the tall creature and didn’t know what to do, blaming deficient police academy training on the crucial subject that left them with “little to no training in corralling large birds.”

OHIO GOAT NAMED ‘BIG BOY’ BREAKS INTO HOME, FOUND NAPPING IN BATHROOM

Undeterred, investigators said in a Facebook post they “went to work and quickly found the owner of [said] Emu,” and then set off to find the massive bird itself.

The bird’s owner, Kathy Gatchell, told WFXT she isn’t sure how the emu got out of its pen, but the jailbird’s skills and disposition made it a high-risk escapee, with Gatchell describing emus as “very difficult to catch” and not “very friendly.”

CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL OFFICERS CAPTURE FUGITIVE EMU ON FREEWAY

Those working to find the emu spent nearly an hour searching for it through the woods. Gatchell said the bird “didn’t let us get too close, as soon as we got close she’d run.”

Eventually, someone had the idea to play emu noises from their phone to try to attract the bird.

Sgt. Jason Reilly, one of the officers on the mission, said that when the bird got close, one police officer “took his sock off and put it over the emu’s head” — which is apparently a way to calm them down — and the cops then led the bird home.

“In a joint operation with the Animal Control Officer and the Franklin Police Safety Division, Officer Rosa and Sgt Reilly were able to bring the Emu home where it can no longer terrorize motorists of Lincoln Street,” the department wrote online. “No job too small no bird too big!”

Emus are the second-largest bird by height in the world, after the ostrich (and they’re not nearly as amiable or easy to find as another popular big bird that tends to confine itself to one particular street). It’s unclear how tall the emu spotted in Franklin was, but it certainly wasn’t native to the area, as the birds call Australia home.

Florida man pays off school lunch debt for entire town: ‘Children shouldn’t learn hungry’

A Florida man decided to surprise his community by paying off the lunch debt of every child in their town, Jupiter, but the good news doesn’t stop there. He sparked a movement.

When Andrew Levy found out more than 400 students in his area were unable to receive a full meal because they couldn’t afford to pay for school lunches, he stepped up to the plate.

CALIFORNIA BILLS SEEKS TO BAN ‘LUNCH SHAMING,’ WILL GUARANTEE STATE-FUNDED MEALS FOR STUDENTS

“I thought, ‘That’s crazy.’ Food is something you shouldn’t have to think about,” Levy told WPEC. “Children shouldn’t learn hungry.”

Levy paid $944.34 to cover nine local schools’ lunch debt, something he said was a modest price to pay to make a difference for each child.

“I want to thank you for generosity, these kids will never forget your kindness,” one person wrote, according to Faithwire. “No kid should ever have to go hungry while at school so let’s make this happen in every city and in every state!!!” another added.

The School District of Palm Beach County, a much larger area, set up a form for people interested in helping out erase the $50,000 accumulated for over 180,000 enrolled students.

Woman robbed Colorado liquor store with help from 6-year-old child, police say

Authorities in Colorado are looking for a woman who robbed a liquor store in Denver last week while she was caring for two young children — one of whom helped her with the robbery, according to police.

The incident at an East Alameda Ave. liquor store occurred Oct. 9 at about 2:10 p.m., according to a Denver Police Department tweet.

The woman, who has not been identified, entered the liquor store and soon proceeded to rummage through shelves and the cash registers, “taking a large sum of money.”

HOUSTON ASTROS FAN ACCUSED OF SLAPPING MAN ROOTING FOR NEW YORK YANKEES

The manager of the liquor store told FOX31 the woman made off with several thousand dollars, though an exact amount wasn’t made public.

Denver Police said the woman had a boy and a girl with her who both appeared to be approximately 6 years old. The 6-year-old boy helped in the search for cash behind the counter of the store, according to police.

Police released a photo of the woman caught on surveillance cameras as she spoke on her phone and walked through the store.

Before hitting the liquor store, the woman also walked into a convenience store in the same strip mall and allegedly used her children there, too, as a diversion while she pilfered items such as lotion and body wash.

“It’s not an excuse to use your kids to do such a thing,” the manager of the convenience store told FOX31.

San Francisco resident blocks alleyway known for homelessness with plywood wall

A San Francisco resident recently blocked an alleyway known to be used for drug deals and defecation by the homeless with a plywood wall in the latest effort to combat the growing homelessness crisis in the city, according to reports.

“This walkway has been a burden on city resources for some time now,” the neighbor, who wished to remain anonymous, told KGO-TV in a statement. “The walkway requires multiple trips a week for power washing and city records confirm that over 100 calls were received for emergency services.”

SAN FRANCISCO HOMELESS STATS SOAR: CITY BLAMES BIG BUSINESS, RESIDENTS BLAME OFFICIALS

City records show the neighbor had permission from the San Francisco Public Works to build the wall, The San Francisco Examiner reported.

“They come in here, they pee there, they poo there. Every day,” Tom Pan, who owns a nail salon, told The Examiner. “The police cannot do anything, it’s dirty and disgusting. In the summertime on a hot day, I can’t even open my window because of the smell.”

After a few days, the blockade to what’s known as the “Ingleside Path” was removed after several complaints.

Neighbors plan to meet Wednesday to discuss putting up a gate, KGO reported.

Residents in the Clinton Park area of the city have also installed sidewalk boulders meant to keep the homeless from erecting tents.

In May, city officials braced themselves when a preliminary homeless count was released. They expected the numbers to rise and they were right. Initial data showed that it had jumped 17 percent from 2017. The double-digit growth was bad enough but then it got a whole lot worse.

When the final report was released a couple of months later, it showed the street count increase would have been 30 percent if the city had stuck to the same definition of homelessness as they had in the past. This year, San Francisco opted to use the federal definition instead of the one they wrote themselves.

Warren attacked from all sides at Dem debate; ‘Squad’ to back Sanders; Biden says focus on Trump

Good morning and welcome to Fox News First. Here’s what you need to know as you start your Wednesday …

Bad night for Warren: Dems attack her on debate stage, then ‘Squad’ backs Sanders
Tuesday was arguably a bad night for rising Democratic presidential co-frontrunner Sen. Elizabeth Warren. She came under attack from all sides during Tuesday night’s presidential debate and then reports surfaced that members of “The Squad” were set to endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., for president. Several of the candidates during the debate in Westerville, Ohio, criticized Warren for refusing to answer whether her “Medicare for All” plan would raise taxes for the middle class. Warren once again dodged the issue, insisting only that “costs will go down” for the middle class. Click here for more on this story.

But perhaps the most disheartening news for Warren came after the debate. Reports said that at least three members of the “Squad” of far-left freshman members of Congress will endorse Sanders for president. Fox News has learned that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., will appear with Sanders on Saturday in Queens, N.Y., at a “Bernie’s Back” rally designed to generate excitement for the senator’s campaign following his recent heart attack. Rep. Ihan Omar, D-Minn., issued a statement confirming her endorsement, and CNN reported that Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., will endorse Sanders as well. It was not immediately clear if Squad member Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., will endorse a candidate soon.

Biden insists he and son Hunter did nothing wrong, focus should be on Trump corruption
During Tuesday’s debate Vice President Joe Biden defiantly defended his son’s business practices overseas and vehemently denied any wrongdoing. Biden had been at the top of the crowded field for months but has come under withering assault from the White House concerning his son Hunter’s lucrative overseas business dealings.

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper pressed Joe Biden on Hunter’s admission in a televised interview earlier in the day that he made a mistake by obtaining a lucrative role on the board of a Ukraine company, with no relevant expertise, while his father was vice president and handled Ukraine policy. Ultimately, the elder Biden insisted neither he nor Hunter did anything wrong and that the focus should be on President Trump.  “The fact of the matter is, this is about Trump’s corruption. That’s what we should be focused on,” he said. Click here for more on this story.

Other highlights in the debate: All of the 12 Democrats onstage backed the ongoing impeachment inquiry against President Trump. In a sign of apparent disunity and hesitation among Democrats, though, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said only minutes before the debate began that there would be no vote on formally commencing the inquiry.

Sanders stood by his claim that he would provide jobs for every single American — “tens of millions of Americans” – purportedly ending unemployment in the United States. Biden, Warren, and Sanders — who is recovering from a heart attack two weeks ago —  all faced pointed questions about their age, and health and how those factors could affect their electability and potential presidency.

The simmering bad blood between rivals South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas appeared to boil over as they continued to jab at each other.  At one point, Buttigieg, who has said that O’Rourke’s gun buyback proposal could hurt Democrats appeal with moderate voters, firmly told O’Rourke: “I don’t need lessons from you on courage.”

CNN and The New York Times were widely criticized for not asking any of the 12 Democratic candidates about China during Tuesday night’s presidential debate. China has made making major headlines in recent weeks between its trade war with the United States as well as the growing tensions between the communist nation and the NBA after the Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey made a tweet in support of the Hong Kong protesters.

Doug Schoen: The fourth Democratic debate’s big winner, biggest loser and two surprise showings
According to Doug Schoen, a Fox News contributor and veteran Democratic pollster and consultant, Elizabeth Warren was still the big winner in the most crowded presidential debate ever held. In his analysis for Fox News Digital, Schoen said Warren showed she was sharp and prepared as she fended off attacks from candidates who were looking to cut into her polling lead — and that only solidified her frontrunner status.

The biggest loser, according to Schoen, was Joe Biden, who needed to deliver a strong performance to reassure voters that he is ready for a general election fight against Trump. However, Schoen wrote, Biden was unable to break through and deliver the forceful showing that he needed, dodging a question regarding his son’s work with Ukraine and delivering several other uneven answers throughout the night.

Sen. Bernie Sanders  and Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Schoen said, were two surprise winners for delivering strong performances. Click here for more of Schoen’s winners and losers from Tuesday’s Democratic debate.
