Newborn with Umbilical Cord Still Attached Flung Out of a Hospital Window in China

To abandon a child this way is cruel.

Jiangmen, China—an unidentified woman threw her newborn son out of the window at Jiangmen People’s Hospital on Sunday. Perhaps in haste, the mother did not bother to cut his son’s umbilical cord. The child flung out of the women’s restroom on the first floor.

A woman surnamed Zeng saved him. She was passing by the medical facility when she heard the poor child’s cry. According to her, there was still blood on the child’s body.

“My first reaction was to find a doctor, but then I feared he was about to die soon, so I picked him up, covered him with a piece of cloth and ran to the hospital,” Zeng narrated.

“I was so scared that my legs were shaking when I arrived in the hospital,” Zeng said. “But it’s a life and I just couldn’t look the other way,” she added.

They brought the child to the hospital’s intensive care unit (ICU) for monitoring. Fortunately, he had not sustained any life-threatening injuries. The child is full term, and he weighs 2.8 kg.

“I think the mother had a reason to do this, or that she wasn’t prepared to be a mother, so I don’t blame her. But she should know that there are people who can help if she has any difficulties,” Zeng explained.

The Southern Metropolis News, via SCMP, said the authorities are still searching for the child’s mother. They inspected the hospital’s medical records but found no clues.

Check out the world’s most expensive and most valuable cracker.

By

"Titanic" is one of the most award-winning and critically acclaimed films of all time. It has lingered in the hearts and minds of many people as much as we are deeply moved by the sad love story of Rose and Jack. But more than that, it's the real tragedy behind it that had us bawling our eyes out while watching.

The film took its inspiration from the RMS Titanic , a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic ocean in April 1912 and took the lives of over 1600 people.

Just recently, another discovery has taken us back in time, in the form of--Spillers and Bakers Pilot "Cracker." You may find it amusing but the 103-year-old cracker from the RMS Titanic has recently been bought for $23,000 at an auction in England. Yes, it's as legit as the fact that it's now the most expensive cracker in the world....

Several weeks ago, we shared with you the news about the United States’ announcement that they will sail their warship near the location of the controversial China-made islands in the West Philippines Sea. Well, it seems U.S. pushed through with their plans and China is completely unhappy about it.

U.S. officials, on the other hand, brushed it off and said that they will conduct more similar missions soon. ...

Russian Submarine That Can Cut Underwater Internet Cables Worries US Officials

American officials are worried that Russians may tap or even cut U.S. underwater cable wires through its newly launched submarine.

American officials are highly worried about what Russian submarines operating near underwater Internet cables are really up to. They are particularly fearing about possible attacks that the Russians may be cooking up against the cables.

Under the sea is a massive bed of Internet cables that account for approximately 95 percent of global communications and is said to cost about $10 trillion in business. Forty four years ago, the U.S. government started tapping the network of cables and released submarine USS Halibut, which discovered and subsequently spied on a Soviet telecommunications cable.

In 2004, the U.S. navy introduced the USS Jimmy Carter, which is said to be equipped with sophisticated equipment that can help to tap underwater cables and interrupt global networks....
