Florida surgeon mistakenly removes woman’s kidney during surgery

 

A Florida doctor is facing losing his license to practice medicine after he mistakenly removed a perfectly healthy kidney from a back-surgery patient because he thought it was a cancerous mass.

 

According to the Palm Beach Post, Maureen Pacheco entered Wellington Regional Medical Center on April 29, 2016, to get bones in her lower back fused following a car accident. When she woke up from surgery she found out that an assisting surgeon had removed one of her kidneys while she was under sedation — giving her no choice in the matter.

 

The report states that Pacheco first met with Dr. Ramon Vazquez shortly before the operation, with Vazquez only scheduled to make the initial incision as orthopedic surgeons stood by to do the back surgery.

 

After opening Pacheco up, Vazquez identified one of her kidneys as what he thought was a cancerous mass and chose to remove it, only to discover afterward that he had removed a vital organ.

Wesley Chapel man hid camera inside roommate's bedroom, deputies say

 

WESLEY CHAPEL (FOX 13) - A Wesley Chapel man was arrested for placing a hidden camera to watch his roommate, deputies said.

 

Pasco County deputies arrested 24-year-old Michael Petralia on a video voyeurism charge. Deputies said he placed a camera in the attic of the home with the lenses peering through a small construction hole in the victim’s bedroom, without her knowing.

 

Investigators said Petralia made sexual advancements towards the victim by flashing his private parts and leaving sex toys throughout the house. When they found the camera’s memory card, deputies said there was video showing Petralia placing the hidden camera in the attic.

Pasco deputies: Elementary principal stole $900 from 9-year-old

 

LAND O’LAKES — A 50-year-old elementary school principal was arrested Thursday after deputies said he stole money brought to school by a 9-year-old student with a mental disability, according to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.

 

Connerton Elementary School principal Edward John Abernathy, of Land O’Lakes, is accused of stealing $900, deputies said.

 

On Oct. 23, the student brought $2,100 of his parents’ money to school. Once teachers realized, deputies said they took it, counted it and locked it in the principal’s office.

 

When the student’s mother went to collect the money, Abernathy only returned $1,200, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

 

Detectives later determined Abernathy kept the rest.

 

Abernathy was booked into the Land O’Lakes Detention Center on a charge of grand theft.

I don't know anyone who keeps that much cash laying around.  Maybe his parents are drug dealers.

Florida Man Turns Himself Into Human Boat Trailer Hitch

 

A man in Florida may lack common sense, but he makes up for it in ingenuity.

 

Over the weekend, an unidentified man in Sebring was photographed sitting in the trunk of a car using his hands to hold a boat trailer for at least a few blocks, according to WFLA TV.

 

The woman who photographed him told the station she did not know the speed of the car he was in, since she followed him for only about 45 seconds, according to The Orlando Sentinel.

Not sure which is stupider. Somebody trying (and apparently succeeding) to tow a boat that way. Or somebody knowingly maneuvering next to those idiots, to take a picture.

These wild monkeys thrive in Florida—and carry a deadly virus

 

In the heart of central Florida lies Silver Spring State Park—a large patchwork of forests and wetlands with a spring-fed river flowing through it. One of Florida’s first tourist attractions, the park was once known for its scenic vistas and native wildlife. But for the last 80 years, the park’s biggest draw has been its monkeys.

 

That’s right—Silver Spring State Park is home to at least 300 rhesus macaques, a monkey native to south and southeast Asia. The animals are breeding rapidly, and a new study estimates that the monkey population will double by 2022 unless state agencies take steps to control it.

 

The study, published October 26 in the journal Wildlife Management, claims that such an increase could put the health of the park and its visitors in serious jeopardy—because, among other problems, the monkeys carry a rare and deadly form of herpes virus called herpes B. It’s extremely rare for herpes B to spread from a monkey to a human, but when it does, it can cause inflammation of the brain and spinal cord leading to brain damage or death.
