Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know You Needed

Spider jumps on baby, so what does the mom do?
A mother must have freaked when a spider jumped on her baby. Because she burned the kid trying to get it off.
The story: A 5-month-old baby from Wesley Chapel was brought to a Pasco fire station with second-degree burns on his torso.
The baby's mom, Krystal Cummings, 27, saw a spider in the tub as she prepared to give her son a bath. So she turned on the faucet to try to wash the spider down the drain.
The spider jumped on her son and she grabbed the baby and put him under the running water to get the spider off.
The water was hot. “Really Hot.”
After he screamed, Cummings ran cold water over the baby, wrapped him in a towel and took him to a nearby fire station for help. The baby was flown by helicopter to Tampa General Hospital with second-degree burns.
Lady next time flick the damn spider off.

By the time deputies arrived, Kanka was stopped at an intersection and had reportedly slept through several cycles of red and green lights.
