German man found up tree, 29 years after suicide
Landshut, Germany - A man who climbed a spruce tree, tied himself to the trunk and shot himself dead has been discovered 29 years after the suicide, German police said Thursday. "It looks as if he meant to never be found again," said a police spokesman in Landshut, north-east of Munich, where a man exploring steep forest discovered human bones on the ground.
Police then found the rest of the skeleton tied in a thicket of branches 11 meters above ground level with a gun next to it. The victim was 69 when he vanished in the summer of 1980.
Man Buys Old House, Socked With $43,000 Water Bill
A Highland Park man who got a $43,000 water bill from the city insists it's impossible for him to have used that much water.
"First of all, I thought it was a joke. It seems like it's an outrageous amount," Wayne Chang told Call 4 Action reporter Aaron Saykin.
Two years ago, Chang bought a boarded-up home from the city and began restoring it, until he got a bill last April claiming he had used more than 4 million gallons of water.
"Basically, the water has not been turned on. There's no fixtures, no plumbing," Chang said.
Although he immediately disputed the bill, Chang couldn't get anyone from the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority to explain what happened.
What he did get was a new bill two weeks ago for nearly $51,000 with interest and penalties.
The water authority told Call 4 Action that for at least five years, it only took estimates and never an actual meter reading from the boarded-up home.
When Chang bought the house, the authority took a real meter reading. So it's possible the authority was billing him for usage from years ago.
Woman glues her eye shut
A woman glued her eye shut after she mistook a bottle of nail glue for eye drops.
Paula Griffin, 29, woke with blurred vision and mistakenly squirted the hazardous substance into her right eye, gluing it shut for eight hours.
Eye specialists at Bournemouth Hospital in Dorset cut off her lashes to pride it open again and warned her she could lose her sight.
The company secretary, from Bournemouth, revealed she was still sleepy when she grabbed the bottle from the bathroom shelf.
"By the time I realized what had happened, it was too late and I couldn’t dodge the liquid completely," she said.
"I managed to stop it hitting the center of the eye, and doctors told me later that it saved me from permanent damage."
She said it was agonizing and burning so she shut her eye when her eyelashes became stuck together.
Doctors gave her paraffin to help dissolve the glue and she had to take a week off work.
She has a cut across her eyeball and now she wears false eyelashes.
