Cheating man thrashed by wife and mistress
MUMBAI: Infuriated with his cheating ways, a man's wife and mistress stormed the police station where he was being questioned and beat him senseless.
The police station premises turned into a virtual battleground after a conman posing as finance manager was beaten up black and blue by the duo for cheating on them, reports Mid-Day.
While doing odd jobs, the man stumbled upon an idea, and started posing as a finance manager for an IT major to socialise and gather contacts for his personal gain.
"The duo were so angry and humiliated about his misdeeds, they vent their anger by showering blows and punches on him", a police officer told the daily, adding that when the man collapsed exhausted, the duo kicked him and beat him with slippers.
Crematorium offers to dissolve bodies
LONDON: If you are bored by burials or your cringe at cremations then you should probably opt for a freeze-dried funeral – or have your dead body dissolved into liquid. These are a few of the solutions offered in one of a host of green ‘after-death arrangements’ planned by a council-run crematorium.
The council has suggested new approaches to handling death include cryomation, in which liquid nitrogen cools a corpse to -196C, when it is freeze-dried, turned into powder and used as compost, reports Metro.
The move is intended to tackle a lack of burial space and environmental concerns – as 260kg (573lb) of carbon dioxide are released by each cremated corpse – but must still be approved by council bosses, says the paper.
Natural burials, in which bodies are buried in biodegradable containers at shallow depths, are already on offer.
Blizzard's flaky 911 calls
NEW YORK: What is your emergency? My kid didn't do his homework!
Hundreds of crackpot callers tied up overworked emergency units and swamped the 911 system with frivolous calls during the Christmas-weekend blizzard and its snowy aftermath in New York, worsening a deadly backlog of 1,300 jobs, medics told The New York Post.
A druggie from Brooklyn dialed the emergency operator Monday at 8 a.m., the height of post-storm chaos, to report difficulty breathing - prompting dispatchers to code it as a critical call.
What he really wanted was for paramedics to transport him down impassable streets to his preferred Flatbush methadone clinic.
Other crazy calls included one from a Bronx man with stomach pains who eventually admitted to medics that "he'd eaten a pizza with everything on it about 20 minutes ago," a worker told the daily. The patient needed antacids.
One Brooklyn EMS crew got bogged down by a mom who dialed 911 at about 10 p.m. Sunday to report that her 2-year-old daughter was bleeding from the mouth.
Paramedics raced to the scene to discover the tiny tot had taken a minor tumble and suffered a cut lip.
