Ex-mayor's wife ruptures breast implants after tripping on city sidewalk, lawsuit claims

Published April 13, 2017 FoxNews.com

The lawsuit claims Cynthia Hedgecock's fall caused her breast implants to rupture.

The former mayor of San Deigo and his wife are suing the city over a 2015 fall that ruptured both of her silicone breast implants. According to the October lawsuit, the city’s negligence in failing to repair a 2.5-inch concrete lip on a public sidewalk caused Roger Hedgecock’s wife, Cynthia, to fall and suffer “serious personal injuries.”

The Hedgecocks, who not seeking a specific value in damages but say it has caused an excess of over $25,000, said Cynthia’s ruptured implants began leaking into her bloodstream, and required “grueling” replacement surgery followed by weeks of recovery and pain medication.

Roger Hedgecock appears as a co-plaintiff in the suit over claims that he suffered “loss of support, service, love, companionship, society, affection, relations and solace from his wife,” according to reports.


The alleged incident took place on July 31, 2015 in Pacific Beach on a sidewalk that had been damaged by a tree, according to the lawsuit. The leakage was not discovered until September 2015 when Hedgecock went to a local clinic for “persistent chest pain and breast deformities,” according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

A spokesman for the city’s attorney told the news outlet that they expect to go to trial later this year.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

I guess the real question is this - Would she be hotter with or without them?

Maybe we can shorten the Driver Wheeled Course.


8-year-old learns to drive on YouTube, takes dad's van to McDonald’s

   He was nice enough to bring his 4-year-old sister along for some nuggets

April 13, 2017

Tenacity and an internet connection: That’s all it took for an 8-year-old Ohio boy to learn how to drive, thanks to YouTube, using his newfound skills to take himself and his sister a mile and a half down the road to the local McDonald’s for some post-dinner cheeseburgers.

While we doubt YouTube will replace driver’s ed anytime soon, whatever the boy watched apparently taught him enough to obey all traffic laws. He correctly stopped at red lights and waited for traffic to pass before turning left into the McDonald’s parking lot, according to The Weirton Daily Times. That’s better than most drivers out on the roads today. 

“He didn’t hit a single thing on the way there. It was unreal,” says East Palestine patrolman Jacob Koehler, who arrived at the restaurant after police received reports from several people who witnessed the boy driving.

Koehler added this was not a case of neglect -- the children had eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner that day. The children’s parents had fallen asleep at home after a day of playing outside. Employees working the drive-thru thought the parents were playing a prank and hiding in the back of the van.

Yes, the kid had the skills to navigate a drive-thru. Have you seen those yellow pylons that prevent an errant car from inadvertently running into the building or outdoor menus? They’re yellow. And blue. And red. And white. And black. It might have been a bit early for a midnight snack, but when you’re hungry, you’re hungry. And we can’t fault the kid for that. Hopefully next time he’ll just wake up his parents.

A friend of mine used to have his 6 year old drive the pickup across the Sand Hills to pick us up after a 2 mile push when we were hunting. No drama at all. The kid did all right.  [:D

A Russian naval reconnaissance ship sank Thursday after colliding with a freighter off Istanbul, but all crew members were rescued, the Defense Ministry said.

Turkey’s coastal safety authority said all 78 personnel from the Russian frigate Liman were safe, as were all crew aboard the freighter, the Togo-flagged Youzarsif H. Turkey’s private NTV television said the vessel was taking sheep from Romania to Jordan

But what about the sheep?  Is no one thinking about the poor sheep?
Sure, apes read Nietzsche.  They just don't understand it.

You can't write fiction when these headlines abound:

"Here are some warnings for those with wee ones: A mom blames the sunscreen, not the sun, for her baby's second-degree burn. And Costco pulled popular Pekkle pyjamas from store shelves after a parent complained a snap detached from a sleeper and scratched a child's skin. Plus, heard of fidget toys? The spinning, buzzing devices might be hurting rather than helping."

'All that was left was his underwear and sandals': Zimbabwean pastor demonstrating how Jesus walked on water for his congregation is eaten alive by three CROCODILES

A Zimbabwean church pastor attempting to demonstrate how Jesus walked on water by crossing a river on foot was eaten alive when he was attacked by three crocodiles.

Jonathan Mthethwa of the Saint of the Last Days church brought his congregation to the area known locally as Crocodile River before attempting his biblical recreation.

According to witnesses, the pastor entered the water and waded out approximately 30 metres before attempting to make his way to the surface. Unfortunately for the pastor, three crocodiles pounced and devoured him.

Obviously a pastor who believed in the literal truth of the Bible. The irony of finding himself a recipient of a Darwin award is probably lost on him and his congregation!
