SEVILLE, SPAIN – A 25-year-old mother of three was cut in half by a hospital elevator shortly after giving birth.

The horrific accident happened as Rocio Cortes Nunes was being moved between floors at Virgen de Valme Hospital.

Nunes was being transported on a stretcher to the maternity ward after having given birth to her daughter via cesarean.

Once inside the elevator, the doors opened and closed but did not move floors. The hospital staff member with Nunes decided to use another elevator and began wheeling Nunes out.

Nunes, still on the stretcher, was halfway out of the elevator when the doors closed and the elevator began moving floors.

According to reports, the poor woman was killed when she was cut in two. Her family, who were waiting on her on the floor above, stated they heard a loud “loud blow” come from inside the elevator.

It would take firefighters two hours to remove her body, which was stuck in the doors. It was initially thought that her newborn was with her at the time of the accident, but she had already been taken to another hospital due to a heart condition.…

ALMERIA, SPAIN – Three people, including two children, were burned to death inside a cave after a teen set a fire at the opening of the cave and turned it into a chimney.

I normally don’t post horrible stories from around the globe, but this one out of Spain was too horrific and unique to not report on.

Here’s what I can gather from DailyMail’s incorrect details, as well as Google translating local reports of the incident.

In the mountains of the northern part of Almeria, there is a limestone cave that young people use as a hideout where young people often go to drink, smoke and listen to music. At around 8 p.m. Monday night, 21-year-old Alejandro P., a 17-year-old boy and two girls aged 14 and 12-years-old were inside the cave.

Another group of teens arrived and wanted to go inside the cave as well, but were denied entry. A 17-year-old with a history of setting fires was not happy about the rejection and set fire to a couch at the mouth of the cave to flush the others out.…

Maria del Carmen GarciaSpain – The woman who set fire to her 13-year-old daughter’s rapist has started her five-and-a-half year prison sentence for his murder.

In 1998, Maria del Carmen Garcia’s daughter was raped by Antonio Soriano. In 2005, Soriano was on a three day pass when he stopped in a bar for some coffee. On the way to the bar, he made a very bad decision as he walked past Garcia.

He reportedly shouted at Garcia: “How’s your daughter?”

Garcia ended up following Soriano into the bar and turning him into a screaming torch. According to the bar’s owner:

“Soriano was standing at the bar very close to me when the woman walked in. She didn’t acknowledge anyone but walked up to Soriano, who was drinking a coffee, put her hand on his shoulder and turned him round to face her.

“Then she pulled the bottle she was carrying from under her arm and began to tip it over him. At first I didn’t realise what was happening, but then I smelt the petrol.…

Alicante-Elche airportMadrid, Spain – A five-month-old baby died after his head was crushed on an airport luggage belt.

A 32-year-old American woman arrived at the Alicante-Elche airport late Wednesday on a flight from London’s Gatwick airport with her baby and another young child. Her husband, a Canadian, was waiting for her in another part of the airport.

The woman made her way to the baggage area where she was retrieving items from a baggage carousel that holds over-sized bags and items like car seats, strollers, etc. The carousel only moves in one direction and is only activated when items are placed on top of it.

According to sources, the woman placed or dropped her baby on the conveyor belt when she climbed up to retrieve a pushchair that had become stuck. The belt started moving after the sensors detected something had been placed on top of it, and within seconds, the baby’s head was crushed in a 10cm gap where two baggage belts converged.

To help better form that horrific mental image going on in your head, here’s a picture of the gap between the two belts.…

Madrid, Spain — A man has been hospitalized after doctors say he suffered a direct hit to his scrotum during a lightning strike while walking down the street in a Madrid suburb.

The 53-year-old man was reportedly walking down a suburban street – aptly named “The Avenue of the Enlightenment” – late Thursday night during a storm when he was hit by a bolt of lighting. Doctors would establish that the bolt struck him through his pants directly in his scrotum before traveling down one of his legs and exiting to the sidewalk through his foot.

The unidentified victim’s son called for an ambulance. At last report, he remains in stable condition at a Madrid hospital. Doctors say that, because the man’s groin took the hit, the lightning did not cause electrical or thermal injury to the victim’s brain or heart – thus saving his life.

Fuenlabrada, Spain —  Father Andres Garcia Torres was recently relieved of his position in the parish of Our Lady of Fatima Fuenlabrada for “pastoral reasons.”

The priest alleges that he was fired after rumors that he was engaged in a homosexual relationship with a young Cuban seminarian were heard by his Bishop. The rumors, in part, stemmed from photographs that surfaced of the priest and the seminarian shirtless and in close contact.

The priest has complained to the media that the Bishop of the Diocese of Getafe wants him to abandon the parish, undergo a psychiatric cure and take an HIV test. Undergo a psychiatric cure?

In response, Father Torres has made a simple and obvious request.

“Let them measure my anus and see if it is dilated,” said the priest.

Father Tores has reportedly handed over the keys of the church, after refusing to do so for several days in protest. According to reports, he has also said that he will now go to Rome to ‘show that he is being expelled from his parish unfairly.’

When you read in the next weeks of a man mooning the popemobile while shouting in Spanish, don’t say that you weren’t warned……

Tenerife, Spain — I don’t normally post stories from other countries, mainly because I barely have enough time to cover the messed up stuff going on in my own. But this one is just too crazy not to talk about.

While the shopping district of Arona was hosting tourists and shoppers, a 28-year-old Bulgarian man walked into a supermarket with a machete and launched an attack on a 62-year-old British woman inside the store. Without saying a word, he stabbed her and then he decapitated her.

He then walked outside with her bloody, severed head in his hands and threw it on the pavement before being subdued by security guards. Police say the man may be homeless and has a history of mental illness, having recently been released from the hospital in February after received treatment for violent behavior. He did not know the woman he attacked, she was just at the wrong place at the wrong time.

People who witnessed the attack had to treated for shock, and from some of the stories they are telling, it’s perfectly understandable.…
