    The man who fought a brutal battle with a rogue kangaroo has described the moment he crash tackled the animal to the ground as it clawed his face. Cliff Des from Ballina on the north coast of New South Wales told the Today show he approached the eastern grey to shoo him away after the '6ft buck roo' tried to 'rip his little dog out of the yard'. 'It didn't want to go away,' he said. 'It just put it's claws up and got on it's back feet and started chasing me.' Footage of the viral brawl shows a frantic Mr Des sprinting away from the irate animal before stumbling and hitting the ground. The ruthless marsupial then stomps on the man, who gets back on his feet desperately clutching a stick and swinging it wildly in self-defence.  'Where I landed I was fortunate enough to land on a stick… but after three whacks it snapped like a carrot and I thought this guy means business. He's gonna mongrel me real good,' Mr Des said.  Cliff Des from Ballina, the man...

    A Pennsylvania motorist spoke out about the moment he warned other drivers about the Pittsburgh bridge collapse before one of the cars rolled down into the debris.  Driver Jeremy Habowski considers himself lucky to be a survivor after he and other motorists were unable to stop their vehicles in time during the collapse.  'The scariest part was definitely going over the edge because there was a gap and my car left the ground,' Habowski told CNN. He then checked on another driver following the collapse and attempted to stop other vehicles from driving into the debris. 'I got off the bridge and started crawling up the hill to warn other drivers,' he continued. 'But the silver car ended up going over when I neared the top.' Other vehicles, however, managed to stop in time after the silver car went drove over the edge. During the collapse, four vehicles were on the bridge at the time with only 10 minor injuries reported at the scene, according to Pittsburgh Fire Chief Darryl Jones. 'It was a lot to take in,' Habowski added....
    New York City's new mayor on Monday vowed to end the scourge of gun violence plaguing his city - reviving a disbanded police unit, injecting cash into community projects, and vowing to dismantle weapons trafficking networks. On Friday a 22-year-old police officer, Jason Rivera, was shot and killed while responding to a domestic violence call in Harlem - the first officer killed by gunfire in the city since July 2017. Eric Adams, a former captain in the NYPD, who took over as mayor on January 1, said that Rivera's murder should act as a catalyst.  'We are going to do a lot more than pray. We are going to turn our pain into purpose,' he said in a City Hall press conference.  'We will not surrender our city to the violent few.' There have been 73 shootings so far this year in the city - an increase of 23.7 percent on last year. A total of 82 people have been shot, up from 67 in the first three weeks of 2021.  Eric Adams, the mayor of New York, on Monday...
    Nestling among pastures and streams on the shores of a New England lake, Bradford, New Hampshire (population: 1,662), is a place where nothing much of note ever happens. It has a single set of traffic lights and one of the lowest crime rates in America. So when the noise of two small planes flying high overhead broke the peaceful dawn one summer morning in 2020, puzzled residents soon realised something was afoot. Dick Morris, a carpenter, first heard a buzzing noise at 5am. 'At first I thought it was a paraplane — basically an engine with a seat and parachute, which is common around here. You hear one for ten minutes and it's gone. But this went on and on. 'I went out to load my truck at 7am and the plane was still going. I thought, 'What the heck is this guy doing? Then I noticed another high-altitude plane, so there were two buzzing round and round.' Another local came across a queue of 15 vehicles stationary in the main road, and demanded to know who the drivers were...
    The state of Georgia experienced rare snowfall on Sunday, and many Georgians were eager to take advantage with outdoor activities like sledding.  In fact, some were so excited for the outdoor fun that it didn't even matter that none of the snow was actually sticking. Video captured by actress Brec Bassinger, 22, shows a crowd of Georgians in a local park doing their best to sled down a hill — even though only a smattering of snow can be seen on the mostly grassy hillside.

    Daily Covid cases in South Africa have fallen for the fourth day in a row as Omicron continues to fade in the variant's epicentre.  Data from the National Institute For Communicable Diseases (NICD) shows 15,424 South Africans tested positive in the last 24 hours, down by a third on the nearly 24,000 cases confirmed last Tuesday. A fifth fewer people were tested for the first in the last 24 hours compared to the same period last week, but test positivity — the proportion of those tested who are infected — has been trending downwards for eight days. But hospitalisations and deaths – which lag two to three weeks behind the pattern seen in case numbers due to the delay in an infected person becoming seriously unwell – have risen. More than 630 people were hospitalised across the country, up only 5 per cent in a week but the highest daily number in the country's fourth wave.  The previous record was last Wednesday when 620 people were hospitalised. Meanwhile 35 deaths were recorded, a 46 per cent uptick on last Tuesday. The...

There he met up with Pat Maloney and Greg Kurcab, both Chicago fire captains, when they went to the disaster site with a procession of CFD and suburban volunteers driving from Chicago."Coming across the George Washington Bridge everyone was silent, because there was like no more seeing this on TV.

    Brittney Gilliam, 29, has filed a lawsuit against officers with the Aurora Police Department  A black woman whose family was 'traumatized' after being 'handcuffed at gunpoint' in August after police wrongly believed she was driving a stolen car has filed a lawsuit against the Aurora Police Department. Brittney Gilliam, 29, was driving the car with her young sister Na'Kiya Jackson, 12, her six-year-old daughter Luvly Tubbs, and two nieces, Emonne Gilliam, 17, and Teriana Thomas, 14, when Aurora cops detained them because they believed Gilliam was driving a stolen car. The lawsuit, filed in Arapahoe County District Court, comes after District Attorney George Brauchler's office reviewed the case and cleared the officers of criminal charges. Five police officers are named as defendants in the case, as well as Chief Vanessa Wilson and the city of Aurora. Gilliam is seeking punitive, compensatory and economic damages to be determined at trial. David Lane, Gilliam's lawyer, said the suit is the first to be filed in district court under a new law passed last year amid the summer's George Floyd protests, KDVR reported....
    A shocking video captured in Western New York appeared to show a white man in military fatigues punching a black man several times in the face, before pinning him to the ground and sitting on his chest. The violent exchange, captured on video by Said Hamideh, occurred along Elmwood Avenue, in Buffalo, on Thursday afternoon. In footage of the incident, the black man, who Said believed to be mentally ill, is seen walking towards the white soldier and lunging toward him. However, as the man approaches, the soldier punches him hard to the side of his face, dazing the man, before forcing him to the ground and sitting down on his chest. ‘I really didn’t like how he was sitting on his chest,’ Said told DailyMail.com, comparing the scene to the death of George Floyd, the black man died in Minneapolis police custody in May, gasping for breath under the knee of Officer Derek Chauvin. ‘I thought that, in the wake of George Floyd, it was inappropriate for a white man in uniform to be putting his body weight on...
    The owner of a Minneapolis salon set on fire during riots over George Floyd's death in May, said recently that rather than helping her rebuild her business, state and local officials opted to tear down the building and stick her with the bill. "I haven't gotten anything, not a penny," Flora Westbrooks, the owner of Flora's Hair Designs, told "Fox & Friends" on Thursday after host Peter Doocy asked her how much aid she had received from the government. Instead, the city of Minneapolis tore down the building and charged Westbrooks for it — at a whopping cost of $200,000. "[The] bill is going to be over $200,000 just for tearing things down and putting up a fence there, so it's going to be lots of money that I can't afford that I don't have," she said. In a statement provided to Fox News regarding the project, city media relations manager Casper Hill said that the building was at risk of collapsing and was torn down to "protect the public." Westbrooks found that explanation quite rich as...
    Tuscon Police Chief Chris Magnus offered his resignation on Wednesday, following the death of a 27-old-man who reportedly died while in police custody. Magnus made the offer during a news conference, after the death of Carlos Ingram-Lopez became public, according to The Associated Press. The Tuscon city council and the city manager still have to sign off on the resignation before it becomes official. Ingram-Lopez died of sudden cardiac arrest on April 21, while he was handcuffed and restrained after he'd ingested cocaine, the medical examiner's office said. His grandmother had called the police after Ingram-Lopez began to behave erratically, the AP reported. He was facedown on the ground with a blanket over his head when he stopped breathing. Mayor Regina Romero, a Democrat, said she is still contemplating Magnus' resignation offer but praised him as “an honest and great” police chief.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday slammed the “far-left” push to take down statues to controversial historical figures, saying the monuments are being roped to the ground “like they are Saddam Hussein.” McConnell, R-Ky., on the Senate floor Tuesday, recalled his comments earlier this month when he noted that civil discourse in America “faces a crossroads.” Since then, protests against police brutality that had escalated into riots have largely returned to being peaceful -- but a push to target statues has rapidly accelerated, expanding beyond those of Confederate figures to include likenesses of everyone from Christopher Columbus to Ulysses S. Grant. FROM GEORGE WASHINGTON TO ULYSSES S. GRANT: STATUES, MONUMENTS VANDALIZED EXTEND BEYOND CONFEDERATES AMID BLACK LIVES MATTER PROTESTS “Well, recent days have reminded us it is not just our present-day debates that far-left radicals want to overwhelm,” he said. “They also want to rewrite our past.” McConnell listed the monuments that have been defaced in recent days—noting that in Portland, Ore., a mob “graffitied a statute of our first President, pulled it down, and burned an American flag over his...
