Ohio inmate falls through ceiling, lands in trash during failed jailbreak caught on video

An Ohio inmate’s brazen jailbreak attempt last month was caught on video, with the recording showing her falling through the ceiling of a holding room and landing headfirst in a trash can surrounded by cops.

Jessica Boomershine, 42, was at the Montgomery County Jail facility in Dayton on Jan. 21 when she dragged a chair across the floor of the holding room and tried to climb through the tiled ceiling.

Surveillance video released by the county sheriff’s office shows Boomershine disappearing into the ceiling as other inmates appear to cheer her on. But seconds later, ceiling tiles fall to the floor and her legs reappear.

One guard grabs Boomershine’s legs and pulls her down. She crashes headfirst into a wastebasket that then tips over.

Boomershine was charged with escape and vandalism, according to county jail records. Her attorney, Kyle Lennen, declined to comment Friday when The Associated Press asked about the mishap.

Boomershine was in jail on charges of kidnapping and robbing an 85-year-old Dayton-area man last month, records stated. She and a co-defendant broke into the man’s home after meeting him at a casino, according to prosecutor Mat Heck.

The pair took the man’s gun, forced him to provide the code to his bank card, withdrew money from his account, placed him in the trunk of his car and then abandoned the vehicle near a trash facility, the prosecutor’s office said. The man escaped and was later found inside the trash facility.

Loch Ness monster: A history of the legendary beast

There’s no reason to think that the Loch Ness monster – colloquially known as “Nessie” – exists. However, the legendary dinosaur-like creature makes headlines every year.

One of Scotland’s oldest myths, reports that a creature was living in the Loch Ness lake date as far back as the 6th century.

The first written account was recorded in 565 A.D. in a biography of St. Columba. According to the text, the creature bit a swimmer and was prepared to attack another man when Columba intervened. He ordered the beast to “go back” and it obeyed.

IS THIS CHINA’S ‘LOCH NESS MONSTER?’ FOOTAGE GOES VIRAL

Hundreds of years later, the legend started to grow. After the construction of a road adjacent to Loch Ness was finished in 1933, giving onlookers an unobstructed view of the lake, a couple allegedly saw an enormous animal they compared to a “dragon or prehistoric monster” cross in front of their car and disappear into the water. The incident was reported in a Scottish newspaper and numerous sightings followed.

Later that same year, the Daily Mail commissioned Marmaduke Wetherell, a big-game hunter, to track and find the sea serpent. Wetherell reported back that he had found large footprints along the lake’s shores which he believed belonged to “a very powerful soft-footed animal about 20 feet long.” However, upon closer inspection, zoologists at the Natural History Museum determined that the supposed tracks were identical and likely made with an umbrella stand or ashtray that had a hippopotamus leg as a base.

But the hunt was not over. By 1934, English physician Robert Kenneth Wilson took the iconic image known as the “surgeon’s photograph.”  The photograph appeared to show Nessie’s head and neck and The Daily Mail printed the photograph, later proven to be a hoax.

In a shocking development, in the spring of 1938, South African tourist G. E. Taylor filmed something in the lake for three minutes on 16 mm color film. The film was then obtained by popular science writer Maurice Burton. A single frame of Taylor’s film was later published in Burton’s 1961 book. However, Burton’s analysis concluded it was a floating object.

In July 1955, Peter MacNab took a photograph that depicted two long black humps in the water. But researchers suspected the humps could be a wave effect resulting from three fishing boats traveling closely together.

In 1960, aeronautical engineer Tim Dinsdale filmed a hump that left a wake crossing Loch Ness. Many said that the hump in Dinsdale’s 40 feet of film was a boat after contrast was increased in the photo. But in 1993, Discovery Communications produced a documentary, “Loch Ness Discovered,” with a digital enhancement of the Dinsdale film. A person who enhanced the film noticed a shadow in the negative which was not obvious in the developed film. By enhancing and overlaying frames, he found what appeared to be the rear body of a creature.

Later on in the mid-1960s, the so-called Loch Ness Investigation Bureau conducted a 10-year observational survey recording an average of 20 sightings per year and in the 1970s underwater photographs of what appeared to be a “flipper” were made public.

Additionally, several sonar explorations, most notably in 1987 and 2003, were undertaken to find the elusive beast — to no avail.

Over the years, more photographs have been taken, but most were discredited as fakes. In 1994, it was revealed that Wilson’s “surgeon photograph” was a hoax masterminded by the revenge-seeking Wetherell. Wilson’s monster was actually a plastic-and-wooden head attached to a toy submarine.

In 2007, lab technician Gordon Holmes claimed to videotape the Loch Ness monster, but a marine biologist said that while the tape was among “the best footage [he had] ever seen,” it was likely an otter, seal, or water bird.

In the summer of 2011, Loch Ness boat captain Marcus Atkinson photographed a sonar image of a 4.9 foot-wide unidentified object that seemed to follow his boat for two minutes. However, in April 2012 a scientist from the National Oceanography Centre said that the image is of a bloom of algae.

Several others have emerged over the years, including a photograph in 2012, a five-minute video of a “mysterious wave” in the lake in 2013 and a debunked Apple Maps photograph in 2014.

But these hoaxes have still not halted the search. More recently in May 2018, researchers announced they would investigate the waters of Loch Ness and use environmental DNA sampling of the waters to try and identify everything that swims in it.

In April 2019, their study suggested that the fabled monster could have been a giant eel and disproved a common rumor that a plesiosaur had somehow managed to survive the mass extinction event that killed off the dinosaurs 65 million years ago.

“We can’t find any evidence of a creature that’s remotely related to that in our environmental-DNA sequence data,” New Zeland geneticist Neil Gemmels later told BBC. “So, sorry, I don’t think the plesiosaur idea holds up based on the data that we have obtained.”

“There is a very significant amount of eel DNA,” he continued. “Eels are very plentiful in Loch Ness, with eel DNA found at pretty much every location sampled – there are a lot of them. So, are they giant eels? Well, our data doesn’t reveal their size, but the sheer quantity of the material says that we can’t discount the possibility that there may be giant eels in Loch Ness.”

“Therefore we can’t discount the possibility that what people see and believe is the Loch Ness monster might be a giant eel,” Gemmels concluded.

Despite the lack of any tangible evidence, the Loch Ness monster has remained popular — and profitable. In the early 21st century, it was thought that it contributed nearly $80 million annually to Scotland’s economy by way of monster merchandise and tours for fans.

Never mind that the question as to whether Nessie ever really existed in the first place remains to this day.

A Georgia man is being praised for his good timing after he was caught on video using his grocery cart to help police nab a shoplifting suspect in a Walmart parking lot.

The quick-thinking Good Samaritan appeared to time the exact moment the suspect would run past his cart before pushing it in front of his path in video the Peachtree City Police Department released last week.

FLORIDA MAN WHO DROVE VAN INTO GOP TENT DIDN’T LIKE TRUMP, SAYS ‘SOMEONE HAD TO TAKE A STAND’: ARREST REPORT

The video shows the cart knocking the suspect to the ground, allowing officers to catch up and apprehend him. One officer pats the unnamed do-gooder on the shoulder as others help pick up items that fell out of his cart.

The incident happened last month at a Home Depot in Peachtree City, located about 30 miles south of Atlanta. The suspect had taken items from the store and ran into the neighboring Walmart parking lot, FOX5 Atlanta reported.

Police later identified the shoplifting suspect as 41-year-old Marcus Smith, according to the station. He was charged with felony shoplifting and obstruction.

While police were appreciative of the helping hand, they advised potential do-gooders to think of their own safety before stepping in to a police situation.

“Again, while we are eternally grateful for this citizen’s quick thinking and impeccable timing, we never encourage anybody to intervene in a police situation,” the department wrote on Facebook. “If the decision is made to do so, please consider the safety of yourself and all those around you as a priority.”

Top animal hijinks of 2019: Here are the most viral moments, from hysterical gorillas to cannibalistic snakes

Overly dramatic gorillas fleeing raindrops, a cannibalistic snake and a thieving seagull were some of the animals in videos and photos that went viral in 2019.

In a year consumed by the Russia investigation and President Trump’s impeachment inquiry, the animal hijinks offer a brief respite.

Here are some of the year’s most amusing animal moments:

Gorillas make hilarious attempts to avoid raindrops

The gorillas at Riverbanks Zoo and Garden in Columbia went viral in March when video showed the primates behaving just like humans as they tried to take shelter from the rain.

The group of gorillas was seen huddling beneath an overhang as rain pelted the outdoor enclosure. One gorilla, named Acacia, hugged the wall of the overhang in an effort to stay dry and shimmied around a corner out of the rain.

As the three remaining grim-faced gorillas followed, each made a human-like face to show its revulsion to getting wet.

“Gorillas are magnificent, majestic creatures full of grace and beauty… except when it rains,” zookeeper Brooke Hunsinger wrote in the Facebook video caption.

Some social media users wryly suggested sending the gorillas umbrellas. The next hit video?

Cannibalistic snake get stung mid-meal

Florida wildlife proved yet again just how wild it can be.

A woman shared video of a venomous coral snake eating another snake as it was being attacked by a wasp – all while the serpents were inexplicably stuck in the branches of a bush.

Evangeline Cummings, a University of Florida employee, shot the video in her Gainesville backyard in October and shared it on Twitter.

The video showed an eastern coral snake biting into what appeared to be a dead rat snake as the two serpents hung in a rose bush. A wasp then landed on the coral snake, and moments later the reptile began to thrash about wildly to shoo away the stinging insect.

“So we’ve now settled on our favorite theory: Rat snake was dropped by a hawk or similar and landed in the rosebush,” Cummings wrote at the time. “But the rat snake is somewhat twisted around the branches so I wonder if when it was dropped it was still partially alive and tried to free itself and could not.”

An epic battle ensued.

Sly seagull steals lobster roll

A woman visiting York, Maine in June was about to try her first-ever lobster roll when things quickly went awry.

A seagull swiped the delicacy right out of her hand — but not before she captured the brazen thievery in a photo.

Alicia Jessop, a 34-year-old Pepperdine University professor, intended to chronicle the first bite of her pricey sandwich. Finding a scenic spot with the Nubble Lighthouse in the background, she framed the shot.

Seemingly out of nowhere, the seagull photo-bombed the shoot.

Jessop was happy to share the viral photo to give people a good laugh – and even got some free lobster rolls for her troubles.

“There are a lot worse things I could be known for, and if that means I get free lobster rolls and bring a little bit of laughter into people’s lives, I think that’s a good thing,” she said.

Bear named ‘T-shirt’ stuck in a dumpster

Sheriff’s deputies in Northern California helped free a huge black bear named “T-shirt,” who found himself trapped inside a dumpster while pursuing a meal in November.

the Placer County deputies found the struggling bear, named for the white patch of fur on his chest, early one morning in Kings Beach at Lake Tahoe and recorded the encounter on a dashcam video.

The footage shared on Twitter showed the cops unlocking the lid and trying to coax the bear out. T-shirt can be seen popping his head out and giving the deputies a fright.

T-shirt, who had several previous run-ins with the law, was eventually able to free himself by pushing the lid up with his paws and climbing out.

Goat named ‘Big Boy’ breaks into home, naps in bathroom

An Ohio teenager came home from school in October to find a sliding glass door shattered, a vile stench in the air and a “baa”-zarre guest napping on the bathroom floor: a billy goat named “Big Boy.”

“There’re all these awful stories in the world — people need this,” Jennifer Keathley told The Associated Press after her 18-year-old son Logan called to tell her about the surprise guest.

Deputies eventually returned Big Boy safely to his farm several miles away, however, the stench of his urine lingered no matter how many times they applied carpet deodorant and urine neutralizer.

Rugby player takes metaphor to extreme with bizarre interview about getting back in saddle

An English rugby player took sports clichés to an entirely different level Wednesday when talking about his next match in a bizarre interview which has now gone viral.

Joe Marler, who plays for London-based Harlequins in the Gallagher Premiership, was previewing the club’s next match against Bath and essentially said his team needed to get back in the saddle.

ISRAEL FOLAU CLAIMS AUSTRALIA WILDFIRES RESULT OF COUNTRY LEGALIZING SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, ABORTION

Out of the gate, Marler explained his team’s disappointment following a 53-21 loss to French side Clermont Auvergne.

“I wasn’t hurting as much as the lads who were out there, but I definitely felt it and I know how hard the boys have taken that. They will be disappointed with the account that we put out,” Marler said, a fairly standard response for a sportsman after a bad defeat.

But we have got another week to get back on the horse, you know, and take that horse to the water. And you can ask that horse, you can say ‘hey, horsey, do you want to have a drink, or do you want to swim?’ It’s up to that horse to then realize what he wants to do in his life.

— Joe Marler

The interview then took a bizarre turn, however, when Marler added: “But we have got another week to get back on the horse, you know, and take that horse to the water. And you can ask that horse, you can say ‘hey, horsey, do you want to have a drink, or do you want to swim?’ It’s up to that horse to then realize what he wants to do in his life.”

He goes onto do an impression of an Irish talking horse that wants to greet fans at the club’s home stadium.

“That horse, at the moment, wants to go out on Saturday, he wants to clippity-clop all the way to The Stoop [the stadium] and he wants to say ‘Hello’ to those fans.

“And he goes ‘I’m sorry about the result last week, but I’m going to give a better performance here at home against Bath.’ He’s a slightly Irish horse. So we are looking forward, like I say, to getting back on that horse.”

Just to be clear, Marler said there’s no way he’s riding that horse.

“I don’t like horses. I can’t ride,” he said.

Man behind ‘Blinking White Guy’ GIF raises over $25,000 for MS with help of viral fame

The man behind one of Twitter’s most well-known GIFs has put his Internet fame to good use and raised over $25,000 for multiple sclerosis (MS). In a tweet to his 73,000 followers, Drew Scanlon stepped forward as “Blinking White Guy” to make his plea.

“Hi Internet! I’m Drew and THIS IS MY FACE,” he wrote on Sept. 19. “If this GIF has ever brought you joy in the past, I humbly ask you to consider making a donation to the National MS Society. It would mean a lot to me and to those I know affected by the disease!”

‘DIEHARD’ TANNER LEFT WITH HOLE IN FACE AFTER SKIN CANCER DIAGNOSIS

He then included a link to his fundraising page on the Bike MS: Waves to Wine 2019 website. In a follow-up tweet posted Sept. 21, Scanlon used his own GIF to express his astonishment at the success of his campaign.

“Folks, we have raised over TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS so far!! Thank you SO much to everyone who has contributed, this is truly astounding! Pictured: live footage of my astonishment,” he said, alongside the infamous GIF.

MINNESOTA MAN CONTRACTS RARE FUNGAL INFECTION THAT KILLED HIS DOG LAST YEAR

On his fundraising page, Scanlon said he has two close friends who were diagnosed with MS, as well as some of their family members. MS is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body, according to the National MS Society. The cause is unknown, and the progress, severity and symptoms vary from person to person. Symptoms can also fluctuate or change over time.

Some of the more common symptoms may include fatigue, walking difficulties, numbness or tingling, spasticity, weakness, vision problems, dizziness and vertigo, bladder problems, sexual problems, bowel problems, pain and itching, cognitive changes, emotional changes and depression. Less common symptoms may present as speech problems, trouble swallowing, tremor, seizures, breathing issues and hearing loss.

There is no known cure for MS, but treatments can help modify or slow progress of the disease, and manage relapses. Scanlon touched on this on his fundraising page and said that’s why he decided to partake in Bike MS. From Sept. 21-22, he cycled over 120 miles from San Francisco to wine country as part of the fundraiser.

“If a fraction of those who have seen my goofy face donated to MS research, I have a feeling we could kick this thing in no time!” he wrote.

While the cycling part of the fundraiser has ended, Scanlon noted his page is accepting donations until November.

Many Twitter users were quick to thank him for drawing attention to the cause and put their own spin on his GIF.

Miami Marlins’ Austin Dean shows off dead aim in delivering perfect throw at fans’ beer can pyramid

Miami Marlins left fielder Austin Dean proved he’s a chip off the old block.

During Friday night’s game against the Washington Nationals, Dean showed off his arm – and aim – when he threw a ball at a fan’s beer can pyramid. Amazingly he left standing the pyramid and only knocked off the top can with a perfect toss from the outfield.

MIAMI MARLINS PITCHER MAKES HISTORIC DEBUT AS HE FACES OFF AGAINST BROTHER

The Sporting News reported that Dean’s feat was enough to secure legendary status among drunk fans watching a 53-100 baseball team.

The new outlet calculated Dean’s toss traveled more than 20 feet but what was most impressive was how casual he made it look.

At least Marlins fans had something to cheer on the night. The team lost to the Nats 6-4.

Little girl who says she bought ‘yip-tick’ from ‘Homie Depot’ goes viral in adorable video

Where do you buy your lipstick? A little girl in Florida says she bought hers at “Homie Depot.”

In a precious, viral conversation between father and daughter, dad Peter Sowell asks his daughter — who was caught wearing bright red lipstick — where she got the makeup from.

DOG CAUGHT USING TRAINING POTTY, SHOCKS OWNERS IN VIRAL VIDEO

“Did you do anything in the bathroom?” Sowell asks his daughter, who claims she didn’t do anything, before admitting to putting on some “yip-tick.”

“What’d you put on?” the father asks in a video posted to Facebook in August, to which the child replies, while motioning applying lipstick: “Yip-tick on.”

Failing to convince her father, the girl says the lipstick was hers. When asked if she asked permission to put the lipstick on, the girl says she simply asked herself.

The girl, despite her father’s repeated questions, won’t budge when asked whose lipstick she applied. She says it’s her “yip-tick,” and that she bought it from “Homie Depot” — sparking laughter from both father and daughter.

The adorable video, which Sowell told WTVT he filmed after seeing his daughter with her mother’s “expertly applied” lipstick, received more than 93,000 likes and over 485,000 shares on Facebook as of Sunday.
