Strange: 4yr-old baby comes home with cocaine

A mum was horrified when her four-year-old

daughter came home from daycare with crack

cocaine on her.

Sabrina Straker said that her daughter Serenity

returned from Little Inventors Day Care in New

York to show her small capsules of the white

substance - saying that another child gave it to her

and it was a "tooth".

The mum, who thought the substance looked

suspicious, rushed to the police , who told her it

was crack cocaine.

The mum said to ABC News that her daughter

was behaving in an odd manner, so she

immediately rushed her to the hospital

"She couldn't sit down," Sabrina said.

"She was beyond bouncy, very loquacious, just all

over the place, literally, talking to herself, looking

in the mirror, saying she sees three of herself.

"Once they did the urine test, it came back

positive that she had cocaine in her system".

The outlet reported that daycare officials believe

someone threw the drugs over the school's fence

to get rid of it, and police are now investigating

potential child endangerment charges.

The mum is thankful that her daughter spat the

substance out instead of ingesting it, or she could

have lost her little girl.

The drug typically causes the heart to beat faster,

a raised temperature and over-confidence -

according to Talk To Frank - and carries many

serious risks.

"Had my daughter ingested the capsule and not

spit it out, I would be planning a funeral," Sabrina

said to ABC.

"Luckily because she spit it out she's still here."

Killer dad stuffs daughter's body in suitcase

Plummer’s criminal convictions allow the state to
seek an extended term. In 2005, he was convicted of
child abuse in Virginia when his 8-month-old son
drowned in a bathtub after he was left unattended, The
Richmond Times-Dispatch reported.

A Virginia man is being charged in association with

the death of his 23 month old daughter. Police found

the toddler girl's body in a suitcase next to train tracks

in New Jersey earlier this year. The child's father has

been arraigned on a count of disturbing or concealing

human remains.

Travis Plummer, a 37-year-old man from Richmond,

VA has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Authorities say Plummer took 23-month-old Te'Myah

Layauna Plummer from her mother in Virginia last fall

and traveled to New Jersey with the decomposing

body wrapped inside a suitcase. The body was found

April 11.

A cause of death hasn't been announced.

Authorities believe Plummer left the suitcase in a

friend's garage in Jersey City, and dumped it near the

tracks after police came to the friend's house in


The FBI tracked Plummer to San Juan, Puerto Rico,

where he was arrested April 19.

The crime is punishable by five to 10 years in prison

under New Jersey law. But the state will be filing a

motion to extend Plummer’s term and seek a larger

sentence, Assistant Prosecutor Lynne Seborowski said.

Plummer’s prior criminal convictions allow the state to

seek an extended term. In 2005, he was convicted of

child abuse in Virginia when his 8-month-old son

drowned in a bathtub after he was left unattended, The

John Legend's wife posts 'sexy' photo, but fans are 'killing' her for it

John Legend's wife Chrissy Teigen just released some

new pics of her body - out pregnancy. Chrissy just

gave birth 6 months ago, and she's proud of her new


Before giving birth, Chrissy was a model for men's

magazines - like Maxim and Sports Illustrated.

But her body has gone through a lot of changes since

then. And some of her "fans" don't think that the new

pics of Chrissy are very flattering.

Here are some of the comments online:

  • It must be painful for her to see her old pics from being a Sports Illustrated model to this...
  • She looks like my laundry lady
  • Why does this woman call herself a model?
  • Standards are slipping these days.

Chrissy is hoping to change the look of models - so

that women of all shapes are accepted into the field.

Flights grounded, passengers stranded as unions shutdown Lagos airport

Hundreds of passengers were on Wednesday

stranded as protesting members of the aviation

unions shutdown operations at the Murtala

Muhammed Airport 2, operated by Bi-Courtney

Aviation Services Limited.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that

the unions embarked on the protest alleging

BASL’s sacking of 20 employees who indicated

interest to unionise.

The protesting unions are the National Union of

Air Transport Employees (NUATE), Air Transport

Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria

(ATSSSAN) and the National Association of

Aircraft Pilots and Engineers (NAAPE).

As early as 6am, the union members, who defied

early morning downpour, barricaded the entrance

to the MMA2.

Their action came in spite of a court order

restraining them from embarking on the protest.

The unionists, who chanted various solidarity

songs, accused BASL management of violating

extant labour laws by not recognising the unions

and preventing staff from joining unions in the


They prevented passengers going to catch their

early morning flights, and also airline officials and

people with businesses inside the terminal from

gaining access to the premises.

The protest also caused heavy vehicular traffic

around the airport environment, which spiraled to

some parts of Ikeja and the Agege Motor Road.

Airlines affected by the action include Arik Air,

Medview Airline, Azman Air, Max Air, Dana Air and

Aero Contractors, which operate flights from the


There was heavy presence of security operatives

including the Police and officers of the Nigeria Air

Force in the area during the protest.

Mr Frances Akinjole, General Secretary, ATSSSAN,

told NAN that the unions were compelled to carry

out the action following the refusal of the BASL

management to accede to their demands.

Akinjole said: ”This issue started since May when

these workers were laid off for indicating interest

to belong to unions.

“We met the management asking them to

reinstate these workers and recognise their rights

to join unions but they refused.

“The regulator of the industry, the Nigerian Civil

Aviation Authority (NCAA) as well as aviation

security agencies have intervened in series of

meetings, but BASL management has refused to

do the needful to avert this crisis.”

Akinjole denied knowledge of any court order

restraining the unions from carrying out the action,

stressing that what they were doing had legal


Also, Mr Olayinka Abioye, General Secretary,

NUATE, said the unions had issued the notice of

strike to the public to afford travelers the

opportunity of making alternative traveling


Abioye urged the union members to remain calm

and refuse any form of provocation by security

agencies deployed to quell the protest.

However, Bi-Courtney in a statement issued by its

spokesman, Mr Steve Omolale, said the company

had obtained a court order from the Federal High

Court, Lagos, restraining the unions from shutting

down Nigeria’s only privately-owned terminal.

“We will like to bring it to the attention of the

entire public that the Federal High Court in Lagos

in suit number FHC/L/CS/16412/18 has granted

an order restraining the unions from carrying out

their threats of disrupting the activities of the


“Pursuant to this order, members of the unions

found in the premises of MMA2 would be liable

to trespass.

“We reserve our right under the law of Nigeria to

deal with such person as a trespasser,” he said.
