Man Injured After A Terrifying Elevator Ride

Chile-elevator1(PCM) This is like something out of our worst nightmare! A man from Chile stepped onto an elevator and was suddenly taken on a terrifying wild ride as the elevator began malfunctioning.

We were assuming that the elevator dropped suddenly with the man on board, however this time the elevator sharply rose 31 floors in a 15 second time period with the doors wide open. It actually reached a speed of 50 mph!  What makes this even more bizarre is that the elevator is located inside a building that was just finished about eight weeks ago.

Security camera footage inside the elevator shows the man’s terrifying ordeal, as you can see him desperately attempting to push buttons to make the elevator come to a halt.  He ended up suffering head and leg injuries when the elevator eventually crashed into the buildings roof!

There has been no update in regards to the elevators inspection records or if it had indeed been malfunctioning prior to the incident.

A Look At The Dangers Of Meningitis On College Campuses

Meningitis1(PCM) There have been quite a few headlines recently about the deaths of college students related to an outbreak of meningitis on their college campuses. Recently, a Philadelphia student from Drexel University has died from the same strain of meningitis that was seen in a recent outbreak at Princeton University in New Jersey.

The CDC released a statement saying that the Drexel University student died from Meningitis B and it was revealed that the student may have had close contact with students from Princeton University about a week before coming down with the illness.

The vaccine has been approved for use in Europe, Canada and Australia, but it is not yet approved for use in the United States. The CDC and the FDA granted special approval for the vaccine to be distributed at Princeton.

Despite the fact that Princeton University students were given an unlicensed meningitis vaccine, CDC officials are still worried that the disease may still be present on the Princeton University campus given the recent Drexel Hill student’s death.

Meningitis is spread through coughing, sneezing and kissing. It will also spread when people forget to wash their hands or clothes, or among people who drink out of the same cup making the college campus and dormitories the perfect breeding ground the disease to spread.

University communities across the nation are encouraging their students to engage in good health practices to prevent the spread of this horrible disease. Many students who become infected with meningitis may be under the impression that they have come down with a bout of the flu, as the early symptoms are fever, headache, stiff necks, vomiting and delirium.

If left untreated the bacteria spread and can cause hearing loss, permanent neurological damage and death.

Walmart Beef Laced With LSD

Walmart-LSD(PCM) A family was hospitalized near Tampa, Fl after consuming a package of steaks that were purchased at local area Walmart store that were laced with the drug LSD.

The authorities in Tampa are in the process now of attempting to figure out just how the steaks became laced with the hallucinogenic drug in the first place. Walmart is working closely with the authorities during the investigation and a company spokesperson is placing the blame on the beef supplier, claiming that all of Walmart’s meat comes pre-packaged so it is completely unclear when the contamination may have occurred.

Jessica Rosado, her partner Ronnie Morales and two daughters began experiencing hallucinations and shortness of breath after consuming the steaks and the entire family became sick enough to call 911. What makes this even more terrifying is that Rosado was pregnant at the time. Doctors at the hospital induced her labor and she gave birth to a healthy baby boy.

What is baffling to the authorities is how the LSD remained potent enough to sicken the family, even after it had been cooked. LSD is known to break down very quickly. Also, the beef contamination appears to be an isolated incident as authorities tested additional steaks for LSD and other contaminants and all came up negative.

While Walmart is not receiving a ton of backlash about the incident, it certainly makes us think twice about buying any beef products from the retailer even if the blame does not rest of them alone.
