Weird news - Taken to hospital with shark attached to arm

Human shark interaction has been taking place at record levels in the recent few years. Even though the numbers of these attacks are low (and investigation reveal that in most cases there is usually some trigger for more sharks to be present - change in feeding stock, or weather changes, or something similar), the fear of being attacked by a shark when in the water is one of the most traumatic thoughts - just the visibility of a shark in beach waters causes all bathers to rush out of the water. Shark attacks are taking place all over the world, with the most reports from the US, South Africa and Australia; and each incident is reported in great detail (with the fatalities due to the shark attack also scaring people from going into the water).
People are terrified of the power of the Great White shark, with the thought of this incredibly large and powerful shark swimming stealthily under a swimmer and then coming up with the mouth open and teeth ready to slash and bite being the stuff of horror movies, and the Jaws franchise did a lot to scare more people from sharks. However, there are a number of species of sharks that have attacked humans in the past; in some cases, experts say that the shark attack is because the shark mistakes the human to be similar to their prey and takes a bite to explore (the power of the bite can be pretty traumatic and can even cause death use to blood loss). In the current case, this lady was bitten by a small shark, a 2 foot long nurse shark which could not be shaken off and she had to be taken to the hospital with the shark still attached to her arm (link to article):
Paramedics in Boca Raton rushed a beachgoer to the hospital with a two-foot-long nurse shark clinging to her arm after efforts to disengage it failed. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported that the 23-year-old woman calmly walked up to a lifeguard station Sunday with the shark's jaws locked on her arm. Her boyfriend was helping hold the shark. Boca Raton Ocen Rescue told the newspaper that paramedics were called, but were unable to free her arm, even after the shark had died. So they loaded woman and shark into the ambulance and head for Boca Raton Regional Hospital. The Park Service says people swim near nurse sharks every day without realizing it and without incident. "Attacks" are rare and typically are the result of the shark being bothered with a hook, spear or hand.

Weird news - Woman regains sight due to injury after years

There are still many aspects of the human body and its various components that are not easily understood by doctors and medical science. From time to time, one comes across incidents that are sometimes seen to be miracles, where a medical practitioner is not able to logically and scientifically explain why something seems to happen; this does not necessarily mean that it was a miracle but that the level of understanding of medical science of what happened is not yet sufficient.
In the current case, it would seem that a miracle happened. A lady lost her eyesight 20 years back through a car accident and an injury to a spine in 1993. Then recently, she had a fall inside her house and hit her head, and then had to be hospitalized and had operations. And then after an operation, while coming to, she had a surprising observation; she was able to see again. The Doctor had no real reason as to why this happened; with a possible scientific reason being that a blood vessel supplying the brain had got blocked during the earlier accident and the recent one causing the blockage to get removed.

A 70-year-old woman in Florida who was been blind for over 20 years has regained her sight after falling over and hitting her head at her home, baffling her neurosurgeon who says it is a “true miracle”. Mary Ann Franco, gradually became blind after injuring her spine in a car accident in 1993. Then, more than two decades later, another accident and a subsequent operation appears to have led to the recovery of her sight, although doctors are still trying to work out how exactly this could have happened. “I was fully blind all I could see was blackness,” she told The Independent. “I was in my living room, going over to the door. My foot caught on a tile, and it flipped me. I hit my head in the back, and hit it on something else, maybe the fireplace,” she said.

Weird news - Killing a customer through a curry meal

Typically, murder involves a trial. But this murder would normally be through a gun, through a knife, killing a person through poison or by some other direct, violent means. Even if you got somebody killed through an assassination contract, it does involve violence, even if this was indirectly. However, there are other ways to kill somebody, even if this is done indirectly, or even though actions that might be deemed careless, or something similar. What happens to the case where somebody has an allergy and you do something that aggravates that allergy and causes a massive medical reaction within the body and causes death, whether instantaneously or even after admission into the hotel.
In the current case, the owner of restaurants has been charged for murder for the use of a material that contains peanut even though the item is advertised as nut free. For people who are allergic to peanuts or other such items, the allergic reaction to peanuts or other allergens is incredible and can also cause death depends on the quickness of treatment and the amount of allergic reaction (link to article):
A Bangladeshi-origin owner of a restaurant in northern England went on trial today charged with manslaughter after a man with a severe nut allergy died as a result of dining at his restaurant. Mohammed Zaman denies manslaughter by gross negligence, perverting the course of justice and six food safety offences in relation to the death of Paul Wilson. "Zaman received numerous warnings that he was putting his customers' health, and potentially their lives, at risk. Tragically for Paul Wilson, Mohammed Zaman took none of those opportunities and ignored all of the warnings he was given," prosecutor Richard Wright told Teesside Crown Court in North Yorkshire.
