  • Hero police officer saved 'many lives' by bear hugging suicide bomber  

    Golocal247.com news

    A 'hero' Afghan police officer saved “many lives” by putting a suicide bomber in a bear hug, authorities say. Sayed Basam Pacha died when he confronted the man wearing an explosive vest in the Afghan capital of Kabul on 16 November. His brave actions prevented the bomber from getting closer to a security checkpoint outside a hotel where a political meeting of supporters of an influential regional leader had just finished. The bomber killed 14 people, including seven more police officers, and injured 18, when he detonated his device, however the death toll would have undoubtedly been higher without the officer’s decisive intervention. “He’s a hero, he saved many lives,” Kabul police chief Basir Mujahid told the New York Times. “All seven of those policemen are heroes but especially him. “Just think if that suicide attacker got past the gate, what would have happened - well you cannot even imagine.” His father, Gen Sayed Nizam Agha, said his son “sacrificed himself to save other people”. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack, with the Taliban denying any involvement. Harun Mutaref, who was at the gathering, told AFP, said he saw “many bodies including police and civilians lying in blood”. “After lunch as we were exiting the hall a huge explosion shook the hall, shattering glass and causing chaos and panic,” he said. In October, a suicide bomber thought to be as young as 12 killed five in Kabul’s diplomatic zone, with the Islamic State again claiming responsibility.

  • Hunter mutilated in bear attack has face rebuilt in pioneering surgery 

    Golocal247.com news

    A hunter left disfigured from a near-fatal bear attack has had his face rebuilt after undergoing months of surgeries. Lee Brooke’s nose and moustache were “ripped off” his face during the grizzly attack during a hunting trip in Wyoming in October last year. The 60-year-old told FOX 31 he came across an elk he had shot the day before on his excursion, but quickly realised a bear had already claimed the kill. He turned to leave when the bear suddenly attacked, knocking him unconscious. When he woke he found the aggressive animal standing over him. Mr Brooke recalled the shock of seeing his “nose and moustache laid out on the ground”, adding: “Now I knew what was wrong with my face.” He underwent months of surgeries  Credit: FOX31 Denver (KDVR-TV) He explained: “I felt her sniffing my cheek. I felt her whiskers. “I should’ve bled to death right there. I should’ve at least drowned on my blood.” With blood in his eyes blurring his vision, he managed to reach for a steak knife in his pocket, later joking: “I don’t know that I would have been brave enough to stab her if I could see her. “I had to lean in to stab her in the head. So I was [that] close to her nose.” He spent around an hour alone in the woods before help arrived, recalling: “I said ‘Lord I could do with a little help about now!’” His brother-in-law, George Neal, eventually found him and remembered seeing Lee’s torn-off nose and upper lip on the ground. He grabbed the body parts and stuffed them in Lee's pocket before calling 911. He said the bear “ripped his face right off”. A wild bear (not pictured) attacked him in Wyoming Credit: AP Mr Brooke underwent months of reconstructive surgery at the Swedish Medical Center’s Burn and Reconstructive Unit in Colorado. Dr Benson Pulikkottil and Dr Lily Daniali removed a fibula and a flap of skin from his leg, then used the bone and skin to rebuild his face. Doctors will eventually reconstruct his nose, possibly even using a part of his own nose they managed to preserve. “They were so confident and compassionate and communicated really well back and forth,” said Mr Brooke. “Everybody was phenomenal. They built me up and never let me down. They’re the best of the best.” Woman’s yoga session interrupted by bear licking her neck

    Golocal247.com news

    A dog who  was abandoned by her owner at an airport has died of a "broken heart". The dog, called "Nube Viajera'' or Wandering Cloud by the vets who treated her,  spent a month wandering around the terminal at Palonegro airport near Bucaramanga, Colombia hoping to be reunited with her owner. According to witnesses, she sniffed people at the airport before giving up the search and lying listlessly in a corner of the terminal. Nube viajera  Credit: CEN Both passengers and workers offered the dog, who was no more than two years old, food - but she refused to eat. "It is presumed that she had an owner and a home and that they abandoned her because the dog never left the airport," Dr Alejandro Sotomonte told Noticias RCN. Clearly malnourished she was taken to a shelter after somebody alerted an animal rescue group, the Mirror reported. By then the once healthy dog was so weak she was barely able to stand. According to vets despite being given food and medicine via intravenous injection, the dog's health deteriorated further into sadness and depression before dying.
