Crazy World: Docs tear baby's head off at birth
Rest of baby's body had to be surgically removed from mother's womb
BRAZIL: A team of doctors in a hospital in Brazil were struggling to help a woman deliver her baby.
However, in a horribly botched case of delivery of epic proportions, probably never of heard of before, the doctors tore the baby's head off, reports Daily Mail.
Tragically, the baby's rest of the body remained inside the mother's body and had to be surgically removed later.
The 22-year-old mother of three children said she knew the moment she heard a cracking noise that something had gone horribly wrong. When she asked the doctors what was wrong, she was not given any repsonse.
The woman went through a lot of pain and suffering, and post-delivery, she is suffering from trauma.
The family plans to sue the hospital for medical negligence, even as the hospital plans to do an investigation to find out what went wrong during the difficult delivery.
Woman makes up intruder story, shoots self
US: A woman faked a burglary at home and to cover it, she shot herself (really, she did), twice - at her own leg and shoulder, to convince police that her home had, indeed, been invaded.
The 48-year-old woman was scared that her story would rouse suspicion and hence she inflicted the injuries on herself, reports WBIR.com.
The woman had to be airlifted to a hospital and on her way she told police that the intruder was a white man and she had struggled with him and during the ensuing struggle, he shot her twice.
However, the way she was shot did not match her story and she later confessed cooking up the entire incident and shooting herself to make her fantasy believable.
Men go trash-picking for woman's rings
ATTLEBORO: An Attleboro, Mass., woman is praising the city's trash collection company after its workers helped her dig through mountains of stinking garbage to find five valuable rings she inadvertently threw away, including her engagement and wedding bands.
Deb Kirby said she took the rings off one day last week to dry them after washing her hands. She told The Sun Chronicle ( http://bit.ly/Jqchqs ) that she had wrapped them in a paper towel, got distracted and tossed them.
Distraught, she called Waste Management.
The company had the truck that picked up her garbage unload at a transfer station.
She knew the rings were in a black bag with a blue drawstring. She and Waste Management workers found it in just 30 minutes.
She said she's "extremely grateful and so very impressed" by Waste Management. (AP)

Sniffer dog nabs man hiding heroin in rectum
TEXAS: A man who tried to smuggle heroin into the United States concealed in his rectum was caught by US officials - with the help of a drug-sniffer dog named Malone - as he walked across the border from Mexico.
Paulo Alfredo Macias, 35, was being held in the El Paso County Jail without bond after being caught on Monday at the Paso Del Norte pedestrian crossing with nearly five ounces of heroin, officials said.
"Internal body carriers are not common at land border ports of entry so this is a significant seizure," El Paso Port Director Hector Mancha of Customs and Border Protection said in a statement on Wednesday.
Macias, a Texan, had been selected for screening at the El Paso crossing, and the dog helped officials determine he was carrying drugs, the statement said.
In an interview with officials, Macias admitted he had heroin hidden in his body, and he removed an oval-shaped pellet containing the drugs, it added. (REUTERS)
