A Superhero Is Born: Pregnant Woman Survives Lightning Strike, Has Emergency C-Section Delivery

lightning-baby.jpg

Greatly pregnant Kendra Villanueva and her guy Ian Gordon were watching a 4th of July fireworks display when CRIZZITY CRASH!, they were both struck by lightning. You know that motion picture ‘Powder’? Well Powder’s mother got struck by lightning while she was pregnant with him and that’s how he got all his powers. Me? I had low oxygen during birth that triggered brain damages.

Gordon suffered a ruptured ear drum where the lightning either got in or left his body. Villanueva had a bleeding finger where the electricity had left her body. She bothered with her unborn kid.

“I got up and I didn’t think she was visiting make it for sure,” Villanueva said. Thankfully, first responders in the location were mins away and got to the couple quickly. Villanueva needed to be hurried to the healthcare facility for an emergency C-section. Her infant was born and although physicians aren’t sure yet, they think Kimberly Samantha Rose Gordon will be fine.

And she has absolutely earned her nickname. “Last name’s Gordon, so little Flash Gordon,” Gordon told station KRQE.

Awwww, little Flash Gordon. I wonder what kind of superpowers she got. Most likely something electrical or elemental. I’m gonna be truthful, I’m kinda jealous. So, below’s the strategy– “Fly a key on a kite throughout a lighting storm?” Haha, YEP! Then as quickly as I get struck I’ll knock my girlfriend up and produce a superbaby that’ll be able to support us financially.

Thanks to LupusYonderboy, who purposefully tries to find houses developed under high-voltage power lines to increase his possibilities of producing a superbaby.

Lackluster chemical tracking program is leaving emergency responders in the dark, says Reuters

4866642415_c472359307_z_large

Fires or explosions like the one at a fertilizer plant in Texas this spring could be exacerbated by problems simply knowing what chemicals are in a building. Under the federal Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act, companies must create an inventory of what hazardous chemicals they are using, storing, or releasing. But a Reuters report has concluded that this system — in which facilities must provide what’s known as a Tier II report to local and state emergency response officials — is hamstrung by incomplete reporting, haphazard enforcement, and poor auditing.

After looking at Tier II reports from recent years, Reuters found “dozens” of errors, some of which ended up in public databases or ended up confusing emergency…

Is it legal to shut down cellular networks in an emergency?

Cell-tower-san-jose-3-stock-1024_large

In the wake of the tragic events in Boston today, the Associated Press had earlier reported that Boston Police had ordered a shutdown of cellular service throughout swaths of the city, perhaps out of fear that additional explosive devices may be rigged to detonate using a remote trigger. Carriers have since disputed that a shutdown occurred or was ever ordered, but it raises the question: would it be legal for a police department or government agency to pull the plug?

It’s clearly a tough call. Residents, Boston Marathon participants, friends, family, and officials clearly benefit from having as many communications channels open to them as possible, but there’s no question that the threat of another detonation is a dire one that…

PLZ HELP: Emergency Texting To 911 Available By 2014

texting-to-911.jpg.

Since no one suches as speaking on the phone, the 4 biggest cellular phone providers have actually agreed to make texting to 911 readily available by May 15th, 2014. Not gonna lie, I already thought they accepted texts and were simply disregarding me. ‘DELIVER AMBULANCE, HOT SAUCE TOO SPICY.’.

” Access to 911 must catch up with how customers interact in the 21st century– and today, we are one action closer towards that essential objective” said FCC chairman Julius Genachowsk.

As soon as the carriers are set up, local emergency response centers will certainly still need the correct equipment, software and exercise, so the function will not be offered instantaneously. Nevertheless, at some point the carriers and FCC expect to offer 90 % of the populace with text-to-911 features. The solution will not support third-party texting applications or roaming individuals.

In the meantime, the providers will carry out a much-needed alert message warning anybody who delivers a text to 911 that their message was not gotten, and that they should make a phone call instead. That auto-reply system will be up and running by June 30, 2013.

.

No word if 911 operators will need to take classes in text-speak to understand exactly what the hell individuals are attempting to say, however based upon the idiotic text messages I get from my buddies I picture it’s probably a good concept.

GW: HLP I FELL OFF THE SPACE.
911: Room?
GW: ROOFING, BRK EVRYTHING PLZ ASSIST.
911: Please remain calm, what’s your address?
GW: 1410 Mockingbird Drive.
911: We just dispatched an unit.
GW: However I’m at a buddy’s location right now.
911: And just what’s the address there?
GW: \* cat image \*.

That’s how I’m gonna die, I’m calling it. No– texting it PIZAZZ! “No zing.” Absolutely no zests, got it.

Thanks to key11 and Denise, who call for support the old made method: ASSIST! ANYBODY, ASSIST! CAN ANYBODY HEAR ME? HEEEEEEEEELP!.
