Teenager attacked while waiting in emergency room

Surveillance footage caught a teenager getting brutally attacked in an emergency room in Michigan.

The 19-year-old was checking in when the attacker ran up behind her and started punching her in the head.

The footage shows security officers and hospital employees responding quickly to the victim and the attacker, but the teen is still suing the hospital.

“She is completely blind-sided. She has no idea that she’s going to get attacked while she’s waiting at the front desk, she gets sucker punched,” said Majed Moughni, the victim’s attorney.

Reports say the teenage attacker had been discharged earlier that day and had been bothering other patients before going after the girl.

The teen’s attorney believes the attack was religiously motivated.

In a statement, the hospital said they cooperated fully in the investigation, and it wants all patients to feel welcome.

Thief caught on camera breaking into cars in Cape Coral

A thief targeted a Cape Coral neighborhood, and surveillance video caught him breaking into an unlocked car.

It happened on the 400 block of Bayshore Road early Friday morning.

The victim said she noticed belongings in her boyfriend’s van had been shifted, and realized what happened after reviewing footage.

In the video, the thief can be seen opening the car’s door and rummaging through the center console for valuables before attempting the same act at another home.

“It’s unsettling, especially when you see the footage of him breaking into the car. I would hate to think that somebody was going through my car, so I definitely feel for my neighbors,” the victim’s neighbor, Rachel Whittaker, said.

A similar incident happened the same night just a block away.

The victim of that car break-in incident also had his vehicle unlocked.

In both cases, the thief was able to get away with cash. Many neighbors in the area said the incident could’ve been prevented.

“There are people that are willing to take advantage of any opportunity and unfortunately if we leave our doors unlocked we give them that opportunity,” Ruben Zamora said.

The Cape Coral Police Department has not said if the two incidents are related.

Is Burger King really coming out with a Chocolate Whopper?

So, you’re hungry enough for a Burger King Whopper, but your sweet tooth is craving chocolate.

Why not have the best of both worlds?

Whether or not this is an April Fools Day stunt remains to be seen, but Burger King advertised a Chocolate Whopper is coming soon, maybe, on its Facebook page this weekend.

The burger would be made up of a chocolate cake bun, flame-grilled chocolate patty, raspberry syrup in place of ketchup, white chocolate rings, milk chocolate leaves, and vanilla frosting.

Okay, now let’s all admit it, that sounds spectacular, regardless of what “health experts” and “nutritionists” might have to say about it.

But, with Aprils Fools Day on Sunday, this is surely a joke, right?

Only time will tell, maybe.

Fire destroys house in Bonita Springs

A fire burned down an entire house in Bonita Springs early Saturday morning.

It started burning at 5 a.m. on Valois Drive, and as of 9 a.m., fire crews were still at the home investigating.

Firefighters said they first got a call at 5:30 a.m. from the next door neighbor.

That neighbor said he was reading the newspaper when he heard glass blowing out from windows, then saw the house on fire.

The fire damaged adjacent houses as siding was melted and even falling off of the house next door.

The home was for sale, and nobody lived inside.

Nobody was injured.

An investigation into the cause of the fire is ongoing.

Florida Everblades continue hot play with 5-3 win against Greenville

The Florida Everblades entered Friday night sitting at the century mark for points on the season.

After a 5-3 win over the Greenville Swamp Rabbits, the Everblades remain atop the South Division with 102 points with only five games remaining, five points up on second-place South Carolina.

Entering the game the Swamp Rabbits had been great on special teams, killing off their last 15 power plays.

That trend continued at the beginning of Friday night’s game as Greenville extended that streak to 17 straight kills.

But midway through the second period, Blades’ forward Brett Bulmer got a stick on Derek Sheppard’s shot redirecting it into the back of the net.

“Great to see Bulmer get involved, he works so hard and is all in. He certainly deserved to get rewarded on the power play there,” said Everblades coach Brad Ralph.

From there the floodgates would open for Florida.

Later in the second period, Mitchell Hear picked up his team-leading 64th point of the season with a rip from in front.

And in the third period, Bulmer got on the board with his second goal of the game, and for the second time, he was assisted by Derek Sheppard.

Sheppard was appearing in only his eighth game this season for the Blades.

With his two assists tonight, Sheppard now has five points in those eight games.

“He’s been really huge at both ends of the rink. He’s brought a little offensive flair, and for him to find me twice, it feels good,” said Brett Bulmer.

Saturday night the fun continues at Germain Arena.

The Everblades will take on the Atlanta Gladiators and are encouraging you to bring your pet to the game.

The Blades are hosting Pucks and Paws night.

You can bring your pooch to Germain.

Purchase a seat for them at the box office for 10 dollars, and half of that will go to the Gulf Coast Humane Society.
