FORT LEE, N.J. — A 16-year-old boy was killed Friday night after he stuck his head outside a double-decker party bus and struck the underside of a highway overpass.

Daniel Fernandez was with 65 other teens in a party bus headed towards a Sweet 16 party in New Jersey. The bus was crossing the George Washington Bridge from New York when Fernandez stuck his head out of an emergency hatch located in the roof of the bus, and his head hit the Fletcher Avenue Underpass.

The security guard on the bus says he told the teens, multiple times, to quit messing with the hatch. “I told them not to open the hatch, like three or four times, but kids, they don’t understand,” said 41-year-old Alex Franco.

Franco says that the incident happened when he walked downstairs to tell the driver it was getting too hot in the bus. That’s when he said he heard people screaming and ran back upstairs to see what happened and saw Fernandez laying on the floor covered in blood.…

RAWDON, Quebec — A new bride was swept into a river and drowned while posing for pictures in her wedding dress.

Last week, 30-year-old Maria Pantazopoulos drowned while posing for “Trash the Dress” wedding pictures in the Ouareau River. When the subject of marriage ever comes up, I always suffer from a reaction akin to a vampire exposed to sunlight, so I was not aware of the “Trash the Dress” phenomena some recently married women partake in.

For those of you unaware, “Trash the Dress” is a a style of wedding photography that details a bride destroying her wedding dress instead of letting it rot in a closet while she slowly destroys a man’s soul. New bride’s will wear their dress one last time while on a beach, garbage dumps, fields, or abandoned buildings. A simple Google search pulls up tons of such images.

In the case of Pantazopoulos, the photographer she hired suggested a shoot at the Ouareau River. One account states she was standing on a rocky area in about a foot of water when her dress became so heavy from getting wet that she was pulled off the rocks and into the river.…

KALISPELL, MT — If anyone would have ever old me that one day I would be using an image of Harry from HARRY AND THE HENDERSONS in an article on this site, I would have never believed it. Hoped for? Yes. Believed it? Nope.

But that day has come, thanks to a man in Montana who was killed after being struck by two cars while dressed as a sasquatch.

According to friends, 44-year-old Randy Lee Tenley wanted to start a Bigfoot hoax by dressing in  a military-style camouflage ghillie suit, and making appearances along Highway 93. So on Sunday night, Tenley donned his garb and stood in the right-hand lane of the highway, in hopes of scaring passing motorists.

Tenley’s plan may have worked out a lot better had he not decided to stand on the highway at night. In clothing designed to help you blend in with foliage. At the same two teenage girls were driving on it.

Tenley was first struck by a vehicle driven by a 15-year-old girl who says she was unable to avoid hitting him.…

UNION COUNTY, SC — A man in South Carolina has been arrested after botching an illegal tattoo for a woman who wanted a tattoo of her stillborn baby on her arm.

Leshannon McBeth has a few tattoos already, but decided she wanted to get another on her upper arm of her stillborn baby. She went to Jody Rector, a friend of her cousin, who said he was a licensed tattoo artist and would give her what she wanted for $150. After paying, McBeth says that the work he was doing did not look anything like her stillborn infant and asked that he make it look like her older son instead.

Rector agreed, but what McBeth ended up with is a tattoo that she says looks like Frankenstein’s monster. I think it looks like Betty Boop, but either way, it was a mess. Rector refused to refund McBeth her money, and she found out Rector wasn’t even licensed to tattoo in South Carolina. On top of that, the tattoo became infected and would not stop bleeding.…

Kirk, CO – Tyler Withrow, 30, has been arrested for murdering his mother and grandmother. He appeared in court Wednesday where he was charged with first degree murder with premeditation. Withrow was being monitored for mental health issues at an Aurora hospital just two weeks before the murders.

Aurora police officer Frank Fania says Withrow was put on the mental health hold after he allegedly broke car windows and a neighbors window on July 27. Police say that found him naked in a neighbor’s garage and used a stun gun to subdue him. Withrow was briefly hospitalized for minor injuries and for his disturbed mental state before being released. Police were never notified of Withrow’s release because it’s against federal law for the hospital to have done so.

A 911 hang-up call at 10:35 a.m. on Tuesday led sheriff’s deputies to the residence where the bodies of Withrow’s mother and grandmother, Dianna and Elva Doddridge, were discovered. Deputies say they also found Withrow at the scene and arrested him without incident.…

St Paul, MN — After 911 received a call from a woman regarding the driver of a truck in front of her, a dispatcher informed officers close to the location to keep their eyes out for “a white male in a red pickup performing oral sex on a white dildo.”

Police responded to the area and noticed a red pickup on University near Wheeler Street being driven by 45-year-old Brian Wutschke. They pulled him over and searched the interior of his truck, which contained several pairs of women’s panties, including a pair hanging from the rear-view mirror and one on the gear shift.

But that was nothing compared to what they found inside Wutschke. After first locating a sex toy underneath his flannel shirt, they also detected a buzzing sound as they were giving him a pat-down. That’s when Wutschke admitted to the officers that he had an electric sex toy shoved up his ass.

None of the officers present wanted to deal with the removal of the sex toy, so they arrested Wutschke and placed him in the squad car.…

Los Angeles, CA — Two women in Los Angeles were fatally electrocuted Wednesday night while trying to help a car crash victim.

The crash happened around 8:30 p.m. in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles, where an SUV crashed into a fire hydrant and then a light pole which knocked down a power line. The water shooting out of the busted hydrant pooled around the vehicle, hiding the live electrical wires that were left exposed.

As neighbors and rubberneckers began converging on the scene, a woman who lived in a house nearby ran to help the man in the vehicle, only to be electrocuted as soon as she stepped into the pool of electrified water.

“She walked, stepped in the water, fell back on her back with her arms straight out, and then I ran back to the house to get my mom and came back. Another lady supposedly was reaching in to help her got shocked too, and they were trying to help her and everybody was like stand back, don’t touch the water,” a witness, Christie Vergini, told Fox LA.…

NEWPORT, Ky. — I have stated my opinion on women drivers multiple times on this site and every time I do, someone inevitably gets angry with me and I get hate mail. But I am in a good mood this morning so I will bite my tongue and not use this tragic story to rail on you females and how, by and large, you all are horrible, horrible drivers.

Kimberly Riggs, 40, and her 15-year-old daughter had just left church services at the Newport Church of God on Sunday when Riggs wanted her daughter to practice her driving skills in the parking lot. That’s when an unbelievable chain of events occurred, leaving Riggs dead and her daughter unlikely to get behind the wheel of a car for a very long time.

According to Newport police, Riggs was standing outside of a car in the parking lot as her daughter sat in the driver’s seat. Witnesses said the car suddenly lurched backward and the open door hit Riggs, knocking her to the ground.…

Park Ridge, IL — Police in Illinois have charged man with assault after they say he approached a 16-year-old girl he didn’t know, threw her to the ground, and then spanked her.

According to reports, 37-year-old Anthony Nugent approached the teen as she walked down the street Wednesday afternoon while carrying a musical instrument in a black case. Nugent approached the girl and asked what was in the case she was carrying. He became aggressive when she told him it was a musical instrument but refused to open the case so he could see it.

She tried ignoring him and continued walking, but Nugent allegedly continued to harass and badger the girl. When the girl continued to ignore him, Nugent reportedly grabbed the teen by the neck and head then threw her to the ground. The two got into a struggle during which Nugent ripped the teen’s shorts and used his hand to smack her ass several times.

Nugent fled the area on foot, but a passing motorist witnessed the incident and called 911.…

Columbus, OH — A 15-year-old boy in Ohio had to be admitted to the hospital after spending four days in his room playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on his Xbox.

Tyler Rigsby spent the majority of the weekend in his room playing the game, only coming out sporadically to get a snack, use the bathroom or take a quick shower. He did not stop his gaming marathon until Teusday when he accompanied his mother to his aunt’s house. That’s where Tyler collapsed several times before being taken to the hospital.

“It’s like he was looking at me but he wasn’t there. It was like he was looking through me,” says Jennifer Thompson, Tyler’s aunt. “We were talking and I heard a thump and I looked over and he just fell.”

They called 911 when they noticed he was very pale and his lips had turned an interesting shade of blue. Paramedics rushed Tyler to the hospital where they discovered he was suffering from severe dehydration and was hooked up to an IV and pumped with the fluids he was lacking, .…

Carmel, NY — Yesterday afternoon, a 6-year-old girl was found floating in a New York lake while clinging to the dead body of a 59-year-old woman.

Three people in a rowboat were on Lake Gleneida fishing when they spotted the girl floating in the water while clinging to what they thought was a large plastic bag. As they got closer, they realized the girl was clinging to the corpse of a woman. The girl was brought to shore and authorities rushed to the scene.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene and her body was taken to the hospital where an autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death. The girl was taken to the hospital as well, but was said to be uninjured. Physically, at least.

The dead woman was later identified as Pamela Kaner, a friend of the girl’s mother. She had been watching the girl while the girl’s mother took a car to the mechanic. Kaner and the girl had been wading in the shallow waters of the lake before something happened that lead to the girl clinging to Kaner’s dead body several hundred feet from the shoreline.…

Chattanooga, TN — Police have charged a man with attempted murder after they say he tried to kill his roommate during an argument over a pot roast. There’s not a lot of details surrounding the event, so I have embellished a bit.

When 66-year-old Robert “Cooter Brown” Cooper discovered that his roommate had eaten an entire pot roast, Cooter walked into the man’s room and pistol-whipped him as he slept.

“Cooter, didjee jus hit me wid dat pistol?” asked the roommate as he jumped out of bed. “Yesiree I did,” replied Cooter as he brandished the handgun. “An’ Ima fixin’ to put a new hole in ya’.”

“Well why in da world didgee go an do that fer?” the roommate inquired. “Becuz I wuz hankerin’s for some vittles but you dun gon an et ’em all,” explained Cooter. “So nows Ima gunna clean yer plow!”

Cooter and the roommate got into a struggle that resulted in the roommate being able to eject the magazine from Cooter’s gun.

“Now watcha gunna do, Cooter?” the roommate asked.  …
