Mexico Opens An Underwater Oxygen Bar


(PCM) Definitely taking a unique approach to the bar scene, Mexico has recently opened up their first completely underwater oxygen bar.  Customers who visit the bar can put on an oxygen mask and casually sip on an oxygen-infused smoothie, all while never coming to the surface.

The new aquarium lounge is located in Cozumel, Mexico and features a 13,000 gallon transparent aquarium tank, where the helmets worn by customers are pumped with 70% oxygen. The customers also have the choice to breathe aromatherapy scents as well. Thus far they are offering mint or citrus flavors that provide customers with revitalized, refreshed and rejuvenated feeling.

No reservations are required for the new underwater oxygen bar and they will provide bubble guns and board games for customers to play with while getting their O2 fix underneath the surface.

Florida Mom Survives A Hostage Situation By Ordering Pizza Online


(PCM) This particular case is one of the many ways in which the growth of technology has been an absolute blessing. A Florida mother named Cheryl Treadway was able to not only possibly save her own life, but the lives of her children by putting technology to use and ordering a pizza online, along with a plea for help, during a hostage situation.

Treadway and her three children were allegedly being held hostage in their home in Avon Grove, Florida by her live-in boyfriend Ethan Earl Nickerson. The pair were arguing about Nickerson’s drug use when he then armed himself with a knife after she made an attempt to escape the home with her children. He also took away her cellphone leaving her without any way to call for help.

Sometime during the ordeal, Treadway convinced Nickerson to allow her to order a pizza online. In the comments section of the online ordering system, Treadway smartly typed “Please help! Get 911 to me!”, she also wrote “911 hostage help”.

Treadway is a frequent customer at the local pizza place and the employees immediately recognized her name and contacted the authorities. When police arrive, Treadway was able to escape the home with her baby, however it took authorities over 20 minutes of hostage negotiations with Nickerson to get him to eventually exit the home and release the two other children.

Nickerson was immediately arrested and faces charges including aggravated assault, battery and false imprisonment.
