A hotel owner became trapped in his own luxury elevator for several days before being rescued by a delivery man, according to fire officials in Austria.

The Swedish hotel owner of an Austrian hotel, Thomas Fleetwood, was caught inside his faulty elevator for four days before a bread delivery man heard his cries for help on Friday, police said.

The 58-year-old was in good physical condition after his ordeal in the Hotel Eden, located in the spa town of Bad Gastein, near Salzburg, police said.
"He told police that he had taken a course in hunting survival in the Swedish army, which was very useful in this case," a police statement said.

The delivery man, a friend of the hotel owner, alerted firefighters after gaining access to the hotel with his own key in order to bring a stack of mail that had accumulated in front of the hotel, inside. Once inside, the man heard cries coming from inside the elevator. He immediately called rescue workers who rushed the man to a nearby hospital. The man was released from the hospital in good condition.

“Being stuck in an elevator is an extremely traumatizing experience, especially being locked in there alone for four long days. The man did not suffer physical injuries, but I am sure he will be terrified from the elevetor for years to come,” Tiffany Brooks, 32, of Portland, Oregon told after learning about the hotel owner.

The man later said that he left his cellphone on his desk, therefore, he was unable to call police on his own, according to press reports.

(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested and charged with rape related charges after raping a 5-year-old girl and locking her up for 2 days, according to police reports in India.

The girl, was in serious condition Saturday after being raped and tortured by a man who locked her in a room in the capital of India for two days, officials said.

The incident, caused outrage across India.
The girl disappeared on Monday and was found Wednesday by neighbors who heard her crying in a room in the same building where she lives with her parents, a police official in Delhi said. The girl was found alone locked in a room and left for dead, he said.

A 24-year-old man who lived in the room where they found the girl was arrested on Saturday in Muzaffarpur in Bihar state, about 1,000 kilometers or 620 miles east of New Delhi. The man was flown to New Delhi, where a judge ordered his detention.

The girl suffered severe internal injuries, cuts and bite marks on the face and torso, a medical superintendent of the government-run hospital in New Delhi, where she was being treated said. The official described the condition of the girl as serious and said doctors were trying to stabilize her condition.

“This man is worse than an animal for torturing a little innocent girl like that and leaving her to die alone in a locked room. He deserves the death penalty,” Edna Kumar, 43, of New Delhi, India told after learning about the girl.
Some are outraged after reports circulated that police refused to open an investigation when the parents of the girl came to report the girl missing, according to press reports.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

A topless barber shop in Australia became extremely popular in a short period of time after men began flocking to get their hair done, according to press reports in the United Kingdom.

The topless hair shop, offers customers to have their hair cut by a barely-dressed female hairdresser.

“Barber Babes”, based in Brisbane, has employees wearing only pants or underwear. Besides haircuts, the shop offers head massages, eyebrow waxing, blow-drys and shaves.

Jasmine Robson, owner of the company, said the idea came from her belief that most men find it inconvenient to go to the barber, and wanted to give them an extra incentive to get their haircut.

She added: "We found that many exotic dancers are qualified hairdressers who do not do what they like because wages are pretty abysmal. Some of the barbers are available for dances, but not while you are getting the service at Barber Babes. They are serious about their art and do not take it lightly."

While the service has been very popular, Collective Shout, a movement against the objectification of women, has expressed its disapproval.

Melinda Liszewski said: "What we are seeing is the crossing of the sex industry in more general areas. This barber shop reinforces the idea that women exist only for the sexual arousal of men."

“This is a great idea. Getting a haircut is boring and now it will become extremely interesting,” Raymond Hall, 22, of Brisbane, Australia told after learning about Barber Babes.

However, not everyone agreed with Hall. “This is definetly like sexual exploitation of women and this shop should be shut down by the government. It brings shame to women,” Virginia Ward, 39, of Brisbane, Australia told

Juror lands in jail for contempt after texting during trial

(Scroll down for video) A man who served his jury duty was jailed after he sent a text message during trial.

The Oregon man spent two days in jail after a judge caught him texting on his cell phone during a trial, according to Marion County Sheriff's department.

Benjamin Kohler, 26, served on a jury in Salem, in a case related to armed robbery when the Marion County Circuit Judge, Dennis Graves, caught him using his cell phone.

Before the trial began on Tuesday morning, the judge warned the jury that using their cell phones is strictly prohibited.

On Tuesday afternoon, the deputy district attorney dimmed the lights in the courtroom so jurors can see a video of an interview between the robbery suspect and a police officer in Salem.

That’s when Judge Graves saw the glow of a cell phone coming from Kohler’s shirt. The judge called a recess, dismissing all jurors except for Kohler.

Deputies said that Kohler did not deny using his phone and offered no explanation as to why he did it.

The judge made a decision to hold Kohler in contempt of court and ordered him to spend two days in the Marion County Jail.

"Each member of the jury has the responsibility to devote their full attention to the witnesses and the evidence presented," Graves said in a press release. "In this case, Mr. Kohler did not meet his obligations and did not comply with the direction of this court," the judge added.

Kohler who works for his father at the Northwest Millwork in Salem spent most of Tuesday and Wednesday in the county jail. He was released Wednesday night.

“He is a nice guy and I wish him well, but as a juror he has a duty to listen to evidence. Come on, it is someone’s life he is playing with, it’s in the jury’s hand to decide the fate of the man, it is a big responsibility,” Scott Green, 22, from Salem, Oregon told after learing about Kohler’s contempt charge.

Judge Graves said that he hopes that Kohler’s time in prison would serve as a lesson to all jurors in the future. An alternate juror took Kohler’s place on the jury.

Man arrested after having seven month love affair with horse

Tony Hall-Rivas

(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested after he was caught with his pants down in his neighbor's barn.

A horse owner saw a man, who was later identified as 47-year-old Tony Hall-Rivas, running from her barn. He was in the process of pulling his pants up. The woman became suspicious and she called police.

The woman contacted authorities because there was evidence that the man abused her horse. It took several months for the authorities to catch the man as he always ran away before they arrived.

Surveillance camera was set up in the barn. The video captured images of the man hiding in the barn and sexually assaulting horses. The sickening love affair lasted about seven months before the perp was caught. The horse has long been castrated, according to the owner of the horse.

Police finally arrested the man after he left his DNA in a hat.
“I was upset when I heard someone defending people having sex with animals by saying that a man’s personal life is no ones business. ‘Some men like to be with women, some like be with men, while others like to be with animals, fighting for equal rights means equal for all,’ some say,” Jennifer Smith, 23, from Minneapolis, Minnesota told after hearing about the incident.

Hall-Rivas, admitted to police that he had an affair with the horse for about seven months. He also told police that the first time he tried to have sex with the animal the horse kicked him, according to local press reports.

Hall-Rivas was booked on charges of burglary, trespassing and sexual abuse of an animal. His bond was set at $2,000.
Sadly, this is not the first man who broke into a barn to have sex with a horse. A while ago, Rodell Vereen, 50, from South Carolina, was arrested for having sex with a horse. The elderly female owner caught him red handed and held him at gunpoint until police came to arrest him.
