California casino roof collapse leaves multiple people injured, authorities say

A partial roof collapse at a California casino on Monday resulted in multiple injuries, authorities said.

First responders rushed to Larry Flynt’s Lucky Lady Casino in Gardena after a portion of the roof near the building’s center caved in. Police called the scene an “active incident” and said there were “unknown injuries” at this time.

While police didn’t immediately confirm the number of injured, the Los Angeles County Fire Department said 11 people were injured, with one “moderate” and 10 minor injuries. Seven people were transported to the hospital, fire officials said.

Police released pictures from inside the casino showing ceiling panels, sheetrock and other debris scattered across gaming tables. Fire officials posted a photo from the roof, showing two rectangular-shaped trailers sunk into the partially collapsed area.

Florida man bitten by venomous snake: ‘My life just flashed through my head’

A Florida man says his life “flashed” before his eyes after a venomous cottonmouth snake bit him on the foot, leaving his leg in “throbbing pain” last week.

The snake, also known as a water moccasin, had been concealed when it struck the victim just outside his home on July 4, Pembroke Pines Police said.

MASSIVE 16-FOOT PYTHON WITH NEST OF 50 EGGS REMOVED FROM FLORIDA EVERGLADES

“It was just a shock,” 19-year-old Zamar Miller told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “I ran back inside and then my life just flashed through my head. I didn’t know what was next.”

Four officers responded to the home in the Cobblestone community and captured the snake as it hid beneath a garden hose cabinet reel. Police said they took photos of the snake so paramedics could identify the species and treat the victim with the correct anti-venom. The snake was later safely released in a remote area of the wetlands.

Miller was released from the hospital Monday night and has been using a walker to keep the weight off his “swollen” foot until he makes a full recovery, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

Police used the incident to remind residents that the area is in the middle of “Snake Bite Season,” which runs from April through October. They advised caution when walking in tall grass and moving outdoor objects.

Medical assistance should be sought immediately for a snake bite. The affected area should be immobilized and kept lower than your heart, officials said. It’s important to take a picture of the reptile or memorize its appearance to help doctors identify the species and anti-venom for treatment.

There are 44 species of native snakes in the state, but only six are venomous, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). The venomous snakes are the eastern coral snake, the southern copperhead, the cottonmouth, the eastern diamondback rattlesnake, the timber rattlesnake and the dusky pygmy rattlesnake.

The FWC says that even the venomous species don’t usually pose a threat unless stepped on or provoked.

Robert Redford mistaken for Zach Galifianakis in viral Internet meme

Robert Redford is not Zach Galifianakis.

The Internet learned this week that the “nodding meme guy” many believed to be the 49-year-old “Hangover” star is actually Redford’s character from the 1972 movie “Jeremiah Johnson.”

COLIN HANKS WISHES DAD TOM HANKS A HAPPY BIRTHDAY — WITH PHOTO OF MICHAEL KEATON

The meme depicts a heavily bearded Redford nod in approval as the camera zooms in on his face. It has circulated online since 2012, according to Know Your Meme, a website that catalogs memes.

Many social media users posted their astonishment following the revelation, which was published in a story from Splinter News on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, those more familiar with cinema and the 82-year-old actor wondered how the Oscar winner could be confused with Galifianakis.

One user wrote that “Jeremiah Johnson” is one of Redford’s “finest films” and noted how the incident sparked “an interesting look at the knowledge gap between consumers of classic #film & general internet users.”

Redford has starred in films such as “The Great Gatsby,” “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” and “The Natural.” He received an Oscar nomination for his role in 1974’s “The Sting.”

He’s also directed many movies, including “A River Runs Through It” and “Quiz Show.” He won an Oscar for directing the 1980 film “Ordinary People.”

Redford founded the Sundance Film Festival in 1978. It is the largest independent film festival in the U.S.

Storm hits beach in Italy, sends sunbathers fleeing debris as freak weather plagues the country

A spate of violent weather across Italy sent beachgoers running for cover late Tuesday when a fast-approaching storm whipped in heavy winds that blew away beach equipment, tore down trees and dropped fruit-sized hail.

Francesco di Giandomenico, a local postman, captured sunbathers fleeing from Tortoreto beach in Teramo province on Italy’s Adriatic coast. Strong winds are seen sweeping away inflatables as children and adults scramble from the dark clouds swirling overhead.

The bad weather included hailstorms, which damaged cars and rooftops in Tortoreto.

Orange-sized hail pummeled Pescara, a city about 42 miles south of Tortoreto, and injured 18 people. The Italian news agency ANSA quoted Pescara hospital emergency room officials as saying that Wednesday’s hailstorm caused cuts requiring sutures and bruises, especially on the head.

Elsewhere in south-central Italy, hail in Venafro broke windows and windshields. A severe supercell over Venice inundated the city of canals with intense wind and rain.

On the outskirts of San Vito Lo Capo, a Sicilian beach town, a blaze forced beachgoers to flee. ANSA said 750 vacationers were able to return to their resort Wednesday after wind-whipped flames had forced evacuation by sea overnight.

On Wednesday, more bad weather hammered Italy as a tornado swept through the area of Milano Marittima, knocking down some 200 century-old pine trees in the popular Adriatic Sea resort.

The bad weather followed a few days of soaring temperature and was caused by contact between hot and cold weather fronts, local officials said.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Colin Hanks wishes dad Tom Hanks a happy birthday – with photo of Michael Keaton

“Toy Story” actor Tom Hanks turned 63 years old on Tuesday, so naturally his son Colin Hanks celebrated the special day by seemingly wishing a happy birthday to “Batman” star Michael Keaton.

The younger Hanks wrote the message to his “Pops” on Instagram – but instead of using a photo of his actual father, he posted a photo of Keaton, known for films such as “Spotlight” and “Beetlejuice.”

TOM HANKS ON PARTING WITH ‘TOY STORY’ CHARACTER WOODY: ‘IT WAS TERRIBLE’

“Wanna wish a Happy 63rd Birthday to my dad!!!” the younger Hanks wrote. “He’s a good man with a great sense of humor. Love ya Pops!”

The 41-year-old has developed a penchant for using photos of Keaton when referring to his two-time Oscar-winning father and star of ‘80s comedies “Splash” and “Money Pit.”

In 2016, he wished his dad a happy father’s day with an image of Keaton in the 1982 movie “Night Shift.”

Hanks followed up on his Father’s Day prank two years later in 2018 and again in 2019 when he posted photos of Keaton in 1983’s “Mr. Mom” and 1986’s “Gung Ho,” respectively.

Colin Hanks has yet to let fans in on the joke with his dad. The elder Hanks and Keaton voiced characters together in “Toy Story 3” in 2010 and each gained fame for starring in a slew of comedy films throughout the 1980s.

Keaton won’t celebrate his real birthday until Sept. 5 when he’ll turn 68.

Massive 16-foot python with nest of 50 eggs removed from Florida Everglades

A female Burmese python that stretched 16 feet long along with its nest of nearly 50 eggs were found in the Florida Everglades over the weekend.

Ron Bergeron, an Everglades conservationist, removed the 165-pound snake from its nest beneath a home in Possum Head Camp about four miles south of Alligator Alley. Some eggs hatched as Bergeron inspected the nest. Brian Van Landingham and Frank Branca assisted in the capture and destruction of the snake and its nest of eggs.

AN EVERGLADES RECORD: LARGEST FEMALE PYTHON CAPTURED IN BIG CYPRESS

“The Burmese python poses a significant threat to the Florida Everglades by disrupting the natural food chain,” Bergeron, who goes by the nickname “Alligator Ron,” told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “With good fortune, we were able to find a large female, and remove her and an entire nest of up to 50 baby snakes which would have continued killing off our precious habitat.”

Native to Southeast Asia, the Burmese python is one of the largest snakes and considered an invasive species. It began appearing in the Everglades more than 20 years ago when the reptiles were imported as pets, the U.S. Department of Agriculture states on its website.

The apex predator has caused severe declines in mammal populations in the Everglades, including endangered species, according to the Everglades Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area.

WARNING GRAPHIC IMAGES: ENORMOUS PYTHON SWALLOWS EVEN BIGGER PYTHON, BUT CAN’T HANDLE IT

Bergeron said in a video posted online that the reptiles eat rabbits, possum, deer and bobcats. A Burmese python has previously been seen devouring a 7-foot alligator in the Everglades, according to National Geographic.

The python caught over the weekend measured 16-feet, 1-inch. It was about 1 foot shy of the record length in Florida. (Ron Bergeron)

Wildlife officials encourage the removal or humane killing of the Burmese python to reduce its impact on the environment. The pythons can be killed at any time throughout the year and no permit is required, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC).

The snakes can reach a length of over 25 feet and weigh as much as 200 pounds. The average size of a python removed in Florida is usually between 8 and 10 feet, the agency said.

The Burmese python Bergeron helped remove was 16 feet, 1-inch long — about 1 foot shy of the record-setting length of the Everglades python captured in April.

Bergeron, a board member of the South Florida Water Management District, said he and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis are working on a plan to “increase the pressure” on the pythons to preserve the Everglades.

Giant sinkhole in Virginia swallows, mangles parked car, video shows

Virginia crews lifted a crushed car out of a sinkhole last week after the road opened up and swallowed the parked vehicle.

The sinkhole opened up Thursday night in Dale City and consumed the unoccupied red car, FOX5 DC reported. Neighbors can be heard on a video screaming in disbelief as the car’s front fender is ripped off when it falls into the hole.

“It’s crazy, we bought our house in 1984 and nothing like this has ever happened on this road,” neighbor Marleen Brumbaugh told FOX5.

Photos posted by the Prince William Police Department on Friday showed crews descending into the hole to hook the car up to a crane. A tow truck raised the crushed vehicle back onto the road.

Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) officials told WUSA-TV that record rainfall likely caused the road, which travels over a creek, to collapse.

“The water took the pipe and it just pushed the pipe, blew them out down the creek,” VDOT supervisor Mike Collier told the station.

Repairs to the road were reportedly expected to take a week.

‘Delinquent’ Colorado bear opened unlocked car, ‘butt-shifted’ vehicle downhill, police say

Colorado police are reminding drivers to keep their car doors locked after a “four-legged suspect” broke inside a vehicle and wrecked it during a short joyride last week.

A “delinquent” bear pulled open the driver’s side door on an unlocked car Thursday night, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office said.

The animal jumped in and became trapped when the door closed behind it.

The bear dug through all four doors and ripped apart the paneling. The animal then “apparently butt-shifted the car into neutral,” police said. The vehicle rolled backward out of the driveway and continued about 100 feet downhill.

On the way down, the vehicle swiped a tree, police said. While the crash made the car “undrivable,” it “popped open a door” that allowed for the bear’s escape.

Bears will “will explore all possible food sources” – including vehicles and homes – and won’t stop until they succeed, Colorado Parks and Wildlife warned on its website. Drivers should take care not to leave food or garbage inside their cars during bear season, experts have said.
