12-year-old boy nearly drowns after getting stuck in resort’s lazy river

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — A 12-year-old boy nearly drowned on a lazy river ride in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Monday evening after his leg got stuck in an underwater pump, according to police.North Myrtle Beach police arrived at the Avista Resort around 10 p.m. to “find a juvenile stuck underwater in what is believed to be the intake pump to the lazy river,” according to the police report.Pat Dowling, public information officer for the City of North Myrtle Beach, told ABC News the suction held the boy’s leg underwater because “the grate was not in place at that time.”First responders rescued the boy, who was not named by police. He was transported to a local hospital and his condition is unknown.One witness told Myrtle Beach Online that “the boy was stuck under water for almost 10 minutes.”Dowling said the North Myrtle Beach Public Safety Department is leading the investigation into the incident.The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control told ABC News that Avista had passed recent pool inspections.“DHEC conducts at least two annual unannounced routine inspections of all public swimming pools operating in the state of South Carolina during the swimming season,” the department said, adding that Avista had passed the two most recent inspections.Avista Resort did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Massive sinkhole opens at apartment complex in Orange County, California

first_imgChaiyaporn1144/iStock(LA HABRA, Calif.) — Authorities in Orange County, California are investigating what caused a massive sinkhole in an apartment complex in La Habra.“This is like a shocker to me,” Jesus Leon, who lives in the area, told ABC News while looking at the hole, which runs at least 50 feet long by 20 feet wide, according to an estimate by experts on the ground.“What I thought, it was at first an earthquake, but nothing in the house was shaking,” Reina Menchaca, a nearby resident, told ABC affiliate KABC. “So, we were wondering what it was and when I looked outside I saw the sinkhole.”The ground collapsed Wednesday night, sucking parts of a courtyard deep into the earth. A sidewalk crumbled and several trees toppled over into surrounding apartments.In the immediate aftermath, a handful of apartments were voluntarily evacuated.“I’ve never seen anything like it certainly in our community,” La Habra Mayor James Gomez told ABC News.As cadaver dogs searched for potential victims, local leaders diagnosed the problem. They believe a long concrete channel that transports water from the county flood control district collapsed.Now, they’re trying to figure out if the county or the city is ultimately responsible and if recent rain was a contributing factor.Authorities are now concerned that the rest of the courtyard could collapse but do not think that any residents or apartments will be further impacted.

The objective is clear: to steal the title from the hands of current holders, Argentina.This tournament is the first step on the Olympic race, for South American countries, and even though Brazil is already qualified to Rio 2016 (host nation) they feel the need to compete in full strength to gain yet another medal. Captain Fabiana Diniz said to CBHb’s website: “We always had certain hegemony in America, but now it has been undoubtedly crowned with the World Championship title, so we want to play as World champions. We want to do well and celebrate once again”.Among the World Champions will be Bárbara Arenhart, Alexandra Nascimento, Ana Paula Rodrigues, DeoniseCavaleiro, Fernanda França, FabianaDiniz (Hypo NÖ, AUT), Samira Rocha (MiosBiganos, FRA), Amanda de Andrade (Supergasbras/UNC/Concórdia, BRA), Hannah Nunes  (Metodista/São Bernardo, BRA), Elaine Gomes (Assoc.

We know that all teams on this tournament will face us with the same respect they always have, but this time they will be even more eager to beat us. We’ll also face them with respect and focus on each game to get to the victory. The World Championship title is now part of the past and our work continues”.The women’s tournament will begin on March 7th and finish on the 15th.

Students take jobs on campus, use JOBboard

first_imgAttending Notre Dame is far from a cheap venture for students and their families, but the University has resources available for students who need help covering costs. Campus employment is one way students can take the edge off tuition payments or make a little extra cash. The Office of Student Employment reported over 40 percent of students take advantage of campus employment. Students work across campus in areas such as restaurants, academic buildings and residence halls. Senior Justin Pham worked for the Center for Social Concerns (CSC) during his junior year. Pham, who was involved with the CSC in other capacities, said the job was in line with his academic interests. “A job is a major commitment and once you have a job on campus you can appreciate that, but it can also be an opportunity to pursue your extra-curricular interests,” Pham said. Junior Eric Hinterman has worked in the Huddle since the beginning of his sophomore year and is now a manager. Hinterman, a chemical engineering major and member of the marching band, said despite having to balance his job with other commitments, he enjoys the routine of regular work. “Having a job keeps me busy,” Hinterman said. “I encourage freshmen to get a job because it allows you to learn time management skills.” The JOBboard program, an online resource available to students through InsideND, is one way the Office of Student Employment seeks to simplify the process of obtaining campus jobs. The program serves as a hub for job offerings on campus and also provides limited off-campus opportunities. Listings are divided into categories, such as athletics, clerical and food service. Sophomore Leah Corachea, who began working at Legends last year after finding the job listing on the program, said the categorization in the program allowed her to easily target the types of jobs she preferred. “It is user-friendly and I still use it now,” she said. “The format is helpful because it divides up the types of jobs.” Despite some students’ successes finding employment through the program, student body president Patrick McCormick said student government is looking to increase the usability of the JOBboard. “The JOBboard is an important program and we are currently looking into ways to improve it,” he said. “We are in the review stage right now; so we would welcome any comments or suggestions from students.”last_img read more

Will Three Billboards Scribe Martin McDonagh’s Hangmen Bow on Broadway This Season?

first_img Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri scribe Martin McDonagh will suit up for the Academy Awards on March 4, and according to The New York Post, he just may also have a play bowing on the Great White Way this season. His new dark comedy Hangmen is currently playing a sold-out run at off-Broadway’s Atlantic Theater Company. The Post reports that the Cort Theatre, where M. Butterfly played until December 17, 2017, may serve as the production’s Broadway house. The Matthew Dunster-directed play is scheduled to run at off-Broadway’s ATC through March 7.Hangmen stars Mark Addy, Reece Shearsmith and Johnny Flynn. The play takes place in a small pub in the northern English town of Oldham, where Harry (Addy) is something of a local celebrity. But what’s the second-best hangman in England to do on the day they’ve abolished hanging? Amongst the cub reporters and pub regulars dying to hear Harry’s reaction to the news, his old assistant Syd (Shearsmith) and the peculiar Mooney (Flynn) lurk with very different motives for their visit.The off-Broadway company also includes Owen Campbell, Billy Carter, Maxwell Caulfield, Gaby French, Gilles Geary, Richard Hollis, John Horton, David Lansbury and Sally Rogers. The play’s production team includes lighting designer Joshua Carr, sound designer Ian Dickinson and scenic/costume designer Anna Fleischle.The Band’s Visit, which is currently playing at Broadway’s Ethel Barrymore Theatre, had its world premiere at the Atlantic Theater Company’s Linda Gross Theater, where the Royal Court Theatre production of Hangmen is running.
