Steve Irwin’s Daughter Bindi Opens Up About How She’s Continuing His Legacy 12 Years Later

in Trending

Twelve years have went by since Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin passed away. His daughter, Bindi Irwin, was just 8 years old at the time, and her father’s death continues to affect her to this day.

Bindi has now opened up about what it was like to lose her dadat such a young age.

I remember people coming up to me and saying, ‘I’m sorry for your loss, sweetheart. Time heals all wounds.’ But that’s just not true,” Bindi said. “It’s like losing a part of your heart, and when you’ve lost that, you never get it back.”

We really do try every day to make him proud and follow in his footsteps,” Bindi said.

Steve Irwin was one of the most beloved figures in nature television before he passed away in 2006.

He hunted enormous crocodiles with a smile and plenty of fearless charm while he educated many people about wildlife conservation.

Steve was filming a new documentary, Ocean’s Deadliest.

While on a diving trip off the coast of Australia, the 44-year-old was fatally attacked by a stingray. His death was a complete shock. The worst of all, Steve left behind his wife and two young children when he passed. He had a daughter, Bindi, 8, and a son, Robert, 2.

Bindi is now 20 years old and coming into her own passion for wildlife twelve years later. She has recently began a new wildlife TV show with their mom, Terri and brother Robert, 15.

They’ve also worked to expand the Australia Zoo, where they continue to live and work. In October, the Irwins returned to television without Steve for the first time with a new Animal Planet show, Crikey! It’s the Irwins.

They’ve also worked on expanding the Australia Zoo since Steve’s death.

“I sure hope dad would be proud,” Bindi explains. “We really do try every day to make him proud and follow in his footsteps. I hope that somewhere he’s out there going, ‘Yes! You did good!’”

The two children have lived at the Australia Zoo their entire lives.

Our house is right in the middle — we have crocodiles on one side and tigers on the other,” Bindi explained.

The family wouldn’t have it any other way. “No matter where we go, or what we do, we’ll always come back here,” Robert added. “This is our passion. It’s a part of us and Australia Zoo will always be home.”

Dad of 6 dies from flesh-eating bacteria four days after crabbing with family, “never got in the water”

in Uncategorized

After being crabbing in waters along the Gulf of Mexico, Gary Evans passed away from a flesh-eating bacteria fours days later.

According to reports, the dad of six never went swimming during the trip with his wife, but he contracted necrotizing fasciitis, a potentially deadly flesh-eating bacteria.

On the 4th of July the 56-year-old was crabbing with his family at Magnolia Beach in Texas, along the Gulf of Mexico, he wasn’t able to walk two days later.

Doctors diagnosed Gary with vibrio, a flesh-eating bacteria that can reside in the warm waters around the Gulf of Mexico. The vibrio ultimately developed into the necrotizing fasciitis that took his life.

Making matters worse during her time of grief, Gary’s wife, Debbie Mattix, has been left wondering how he contracted the bacteria that killed him, as according to her he never once swam in the water.

She said: “His hat fell off into the water a couple of times, and he picked it up, and you just laugh about it, and he put it back on his head, was that it?

Was that the entryway then? I don’t know. Could it have been when he pulled the crab traps out of the water and the breeze, some of the water sprinkled on him then? But to say we floated out in the water, no. We never got in the water.”

Unfotunatley, the bacteria tore through Gary’s system, moving fast and proving deadly.

On Saturday morning, he couldn’t walk,” Debbie told the Victoria Advocate. “That is how quick it hit.”

Once they noticed his legs and feet were swollen, Gary’s family took him to the hospital as a precaution.

“We got there and they let me know he wasn’t going home; he was going straight into ICU,” Debbie explained.

Doctors started treating him for Vibrio, but it wasn’t confirmed until the next day; that is when they said it started manifesting itself.”

Despite doctors administering antibiotics, the swelling in Gary’s legs soon turned into blisters. Gary had surgery, while Debbie was informed he only had 76-hours to live.

They did everything they could do. He was very, very sick, and it ended up beating him. It spread into his liver, his kidneys and he was on a respirator. It also got into his blood system and started collapsing his veins.”

She continued: “This bacteria is a lot worse than people really think it is. It is not a bacteria that is easily contained; it comes in with vengeance, and it is relentless, just, like, destroying everything in its path.”

Teacher Announces She And Longtime Boyfriend Are Expecting A Baby—And Says She Got Fired For It

in Trending

For the last four years, Naiad Reich,31, taught at Our Lady of Lourdes Regional School in Edgewood, Pennsylvania. However on Friday, she was fired by a nun after informing administrators she was expecting a child with her boyfriend.

Thirty one year old Naiad, was shocked after she was called into the office at the end of the week only to be told she was fired.

You see, Naiad was teaching at a Catholic high school — and while her pregnancy was planned, she and her boyfriend have no immediate plans to get married.

Her response, honestly, is one that will sit with me for a very long time, because she was very displeased,’ Reich said after she informed sister Mary Anne Bednar. ‘She said it would be a problem, and she had to contact the diocese.’

The diocese’s website lists “immorality” as a cause for termination, and Naiad says her status as an unmarried pregnant woman was the reason she was fired.

She was basically given an ultimatum: either plan to get married or lose her beloved job. Naiad wanted to get married on her own terms.

Not only does the former teacher desperately miss her students, but she also feels hurt and victimized by the decision. “I feel like I’m a rewriting of ‘The Scarlet Letter’ at this point, just minus the affair,” she explains.

Reich said she plans to appeal her firing, but was not sure if she would hire a lawyer. Naiad’s circumstances have created a heated debate since she went public with her story.

Love bites can actually be very dangerous for your health

in Uncategorized

Back in 2017 A teenager passed away in Mexico after getting a love bite

Love bites, or hickeys, can actually have detrimental effects on your health, but not many people know this.

Julio Macias Gonzalez,from mexico passed away from a stroke after a love bite from his girlfriend caused a blood clot in his neck.

Image result for lovebite

While this is extremely rare, it is not entirely unheard of a woman from New Zealand had a hickey-induced stroke that left her with paralysis of her left arm, back in 2010.

Love bites are giving to the soft, tender parts of your skin, especially your neck. When you get an intense love bite, the capillaries beneath the skin break causing an ugly bruise that stays for weeks.

Image result for lovebite

Hickeys can also lead to deep vein thrombosis, which can lead to a pulmonary embolism.

Dying from a hickey is more than likely not going to happen to you, but Popular Science says that venous blood clots kill more people each year than breast cancer, car crashes and AIDS put together, every year.

Love bites can also pass the oral herpes virus.

If you get a hickey from someone who has an active cold sore, they may actually transfer the virus onto you. However, people with cold sores should be engaging in any sexual contact of any kind while it is still active.

To avoid getting hickeys so easily, up your iron intake as people with iron deficiency tend to get hickeys far easier. The key for getting rid of hickeys, even though there is no cure, is to stay hydrated and eat well.

Breaking: Man fighting for his life after contracting flesh-eating bacteria on family kayaking trip

in Trending

A family is in shock and a man fighting for his life having contracted a flesh-eating bacteria while on a kayaking trip in Second Creek.

Ricky Rutherford and his wife Cassey, both from Alabama, spent a day kayaking with their kids. When Ricky returned to work after the trip, however, his temperature reached 103 degrees and he was experiencing cramp in his legs.

Ricky thought it wasa result of working in a warehouse while the weather was hot.However it transpired to be something much more terrifying. The following day, Ricky discovered his leg was red and swollen. His wife Cassey explained in a Facebook post:

“When he undressed he found his leg was red and swollen. We immediately went to the ER last night and they told us it was cellulitis possibly contracted from our kayaking trip Saturday and treated him with IV antibiotics and sent him home with two more. They told him if there was any change to come back.”

Ricky’s condition deteriorated further and he was rushed to hospital the following morning, where doctors ran tests for a strain of flesh-eating bacteria.

Surgery followed, wherein a five-by-six inch chunk of his leg was cleaned out and sent for tests. Later on Monday it was confirmed that Ricky had contracted necrotising fasciitis.

“My husband is fighting for his life right now because of this horrible thing,” Cassey continued. “What seemed like a normal fun activity that we enjoyed as a family has turned into a nightmare.

There have been between 700 and 1,200 confirmed cases in the US since 2010. Cassey wants to make people aware that, contrary to popular opinion, a victim doesn’t need to have any open wounds or sores.

Speaking to WAFF, she said: “There was nothing. But the doctors told us it could be a microscopic hole that it could come into and still spread like that. It’s hard to believe that there was a group of us and my husband, being the healthiest immune system there, got this.

He’s never sick. He doesn’t even have a doctor. To know that he got that when the rest of us didn’t is insane.

“I don’t want anyone else to go through this. On Saturday, I was having to think about burying the love of my life. No one should ever have to go through that. Do not get in that water! It’s not safe. Don’t jeopardise your family for a day of fun. It’s right here in our backyard.”

Man May ‘Never Walk Again’ After Breaking Neck On Waterslide

in Trending

One may never be able to walk again after breaking his neck in two places on a waterslide in Spain.

It is feared that 23 year old, David Briffaut, may be paralyzed for life after the horrific accident that occurred while he was going down a waterslide at Aqualandia in Benidorm.

The young man from Essex snapped two vertebrae in his neck when he slid down head-first on a board and into the water.

Briffaut, who was abroad with his girlfriend, Penny Bristow, was immediately taken to hospital and placed in intensive care.

A JustGiving page has since been set up for Briffaut in the hope of raising funds for him after he suffered “suffered catastrophic injuries to his spinal cord”.

David Briffaut

On Monday 8th July 2019 David Briffaut, 23 years old, was enjoying a holiday in Jávea on the Costa Blanca Spain with his girlfriend Penny and another young couple,” the description on the crowdfunding page reads.

“A couple of days before they were due to fly home to Essex the four decided to travel down the coast to Benidorm and visit the Aqualandia Waterpark. What began as a fun day out ended in tragedy when David suffered his horrific injuries coming down a waterslide.

David is currently on life support in Hospital in Alicante where he is expected to undergo more surgery, and once he is considered stable enough arrangements will be made to fly him home to the UK by Air Ambulance.”

David’s mother Lorraine said: “We are living in every parents’ nightmare. Our son went on holiday with his girlfriend and we have been told he might never walk again. All we can do now is pray that he can recover.

“He is sedated but is aware of what has happened to him. David is getting fantastic care at the hospital but we want to get him home to England as soon as he can be moved. We are in the hands of the doctors and just have to wait and see.”

“He is getting excellent care but would like to bring him home as soon as possible. All we can do is pray and hope that there is some recovery. We have been told David cannot feel anything from the chest down. Sometimes these are injuries from which the body does recover and that is what we can hope for.”

A spokesman for Aqualandia has since said that it is “simply false” to conclude that the ride is inherently unsafe from these recent events.

He explained that before the park is opened each season, an external company makes an “exhaustive review” of all the slides. Additionally, the park’s staff conduct a daily check each morning.

Moreover, we have video footage which shows Mr Briffaut didn’t follow the guidelines for Splash,” the spokesman said. “Aqualandia has a long, 34-year history and safety is our top priority. Our rules and recommendations are clearly displayed all the park and must be adhered to by our visitors.”

Amazon Alexa Dials 911 When Abusive Boyfriend Threatens To Kill His Girlfriend

in Trending

Amazon’s Alexa device has been blamed for a lot of things throughout the years. Remember when she began to laugh creepily at people out of nowhere! However she made headlines this week for all the right reasons, after helping put an alleged abusive boyfriend behind bars for violent threats he is accused of making against his girlfriend.

On July 2nd, 28-year-old Eduardo Barros became angered by his girlfriend while the two were house-sitting. It all kicked off once Barros noticed that his girlfriend received a text message from another man, where he accused her of cheating.

The verbal argument allegedly escalated into a physical altercation, where Barros waved a gun in the air threatening to kill his girlfriend. But apparently, Alexa was having none of it.

The whole scenario could have gotten much worse, had Barros not said a few trigger words that caused Alexa to perk up.After allegedly threatening to kill his girlfriend, Barros supposedly asked, “Did you call the sheriffs?

Those five little words were all it took for Alexa to dial the local police. Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Felicia Romero explained that the device instantly recognized the question as a command.

An arrest warrant affidavit obtained the harrowing moments the girlfriend says she endured before police arrested Barros.

Barros told her she was not going anywhere and he was going to kill her. When 911 called her phone, Barros saw the caller ID and threw [her] to the floor. Barros then kicked her while on the ground at least 10 times in the face and stomach.”

Because he’d been in prison before and didn’t want to return his anger was roused: “Barros told [the victim] he could not believe the cops had been called and he was not going back to prison and that she knew he was a felon. [The victim] stated she thought she was going to be killed or shot.”

What made the situation worse was that the daughter of his girlfriend was also home at the time. Thankfully she was unharmed and her mother only sustained minor cuts, so there was no need for a visit to the hospital. Both were escorted out of the house once the cops arrived, but Barros was not about to surrender to police without a fight.

SWAT team officials and crisis negotiators were soon called to the home in an effort to coax the man out.It would not be easy, though. Barros was eventually put in handcuffs and taken into custody all thanks to Alexa!

The unexpected use of this new technology to contact emergency services has possibly helped save a life,” said Bernalillo County Sheriff Manuel Gonzales III in a statement.

This amazing technology definitely helped save a mother and her child from a very violent situation.
