Funeral where dead man woke up

(Scroll down for video) A man woke up just in time before being buried alive at his own funeral, according to a statement released by hospital officials in Zimbabwe.

Mourners ran in panic when the dead man came back to life at his own funeral.
Friends and family who were at the funeral jumped out of their skins and ran for their lives when Brighton Dama Zanthe, 34, began shaking in his coffin Monday.

Those attending the funeral initially thought that their friend, who they believed was dead after a long illness, had come back from the afterlife to haunt them.
Lot Gaka, an official at the Zimbabwe Workers Transportation Council, somehow managed to stay calm. He leaped into action to save his friend.

Gaka quickly pulled the blankets of Zanthe’s body and called an ambulance.
Zanthe was rushed to a nearby hospital in the Gweru Provincial, where he spent two days in intensive care before being discharged last week.

“This is really freaky. I can’t imagine being at a funeral where the dead suddenly wakes up. If I ever saw this at a funeral I would be scared from attending a funeral ever again,” Susan Davis, 32, of Orlando, Florida told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the dead man who woke up at his funeral.

"I do not know what happened, and I just remember being on a life support system in the hospital," Zanthe said.
He added: "All is history for me what I can only confirm is that the people gathered at my house to mourn, but they gave me another chance, I'm alive and I feel good now."Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Elderly Man arrested after employing female senior citizens as prostitutes

(Scroll down for video) An elderly man is accused of running a prostitution ring which employed elderly women as the prostitutes.

James Parham, 75, was arrested for allegedly running a prostitution ring from his apartment in Englewood, New Jersey’s public housing complex for senior citizens.

Parham allegedly used both young women from the neighborhood as well as older women who lived in his low income, senior citizens housing complex, police said. Parham allegedly told police that the prostitutes were mostly "women addicted to crack." So far, none of the alleged prostitutes were arrested.

Resident Cheryl Chaney, 66, was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a nuisance for allowing drug use in their apartment. Police have learned of the criminal activity after residents complained that strangers came in and out of the complex frequently.

“Many people in the community were shocked by the allegations against Parham. The most shocking was the claim that he used the elderly women as the prostitutes. I think that he preyed on the women because he claims that he used women who are addicted to drugs. Drug users are known to do anything to get their hands on drugs,” Frank Nelson, 43, of Englewood, New Jersey told YourJewishNews.com after the arrest of James Parham.

World's fattest man is now world's biggest weight loser after losing 650 pounds

(Scroll down for video) The world’s fattest man is now the world’s biggest weight loser after losing 650 pounds.

The former world's fattest man celebrated a milestone, after shedding nearly 650 pounds.

Paul Mason, 51, lost two thirds of his total weight of nearly 1,000 pounds after gastric bypass surgery funded by the National Health Service or NHS, which reduces the stomach to the size of an egg.

The former postal service employee from Ipswich, Suffolk, now weighs about 330 pounds and said that his goal is to reach 200 pounds. "I have still a long way to go," Mason said, who promised to go from the fattest man in the world to the world’s biggest weight loser.

Mason's medical bills so far are believed to have cost taxpayers more than $1.6 million. He is now fighting the NHS to fund a new surgery that would cost up to $50,000 to remove loose skin left after his substantial weight loss.
Mason used to consume 20,000 calories a day, about 10 times the recommended daily level, on a diet of supersized take out foods, fried foods and forty bags of chips.

But after surgery, he threw away his electric wheelchair and switched to a diet of vegetables and small portions. Mason blames childhood bullying for his binge eating disorder and said that it was exacerbated by the death of his father in 1986.

“I am surprised that he did not have a heart attack from eating so many unhealthy foods. I applaud him for making the decision to stop his bad habits and he is sticking to it. I hope he has the strength to stay on his current diet,” Mary Lee Jensen, 59, of London, England told YourJewishNews.com after seeing the before and after photos of Paul Mason.

Firefighters once removed the wall outside his house and used a forklift in order to place him in an ambulance when he needed a hernia operation when he weighed nearly 800 pounds in 2002.

(Scroll down for video) A man just couldn't help himself despite being on honeymoon with his new wife, according to a statement released by Florida police.

The newly married husband requested sex from a prostitute while on his honeymoon with his new wife, authorities said.
Mohammed Ahmed, 21, allegedly left his blushing bride in his luxury suite so he could meet with the prostitute who he had seen online, but the prostitute turned out to be an undercover police officer.

Ahmed was arrested, along with 92 other men, pimps and prostitutes, as part of the Sheriff's Office of Polk County undercover sting.

Sheriff Grady Judd said in a statement that Ahmed and his new wife, of Illinois, were on vacation at the Omni Hotel at Champions Gate last week.

He responded to an advertisement on Backpage.com and agreed to pay for sex.
When he did not return, his wife contacted police to report him missing, only to discover that he had been thrown in jail and booked on charges of soliciting prostitution.

“How stupid is this guy going out with prostitutes while on his honeymoon with his new wife? Something is definitely wrong with his marriage. I hope the wife left him in jail and ran off,” Linda Johnson, 34, of Orlando, Florida told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the cheating groom.

Ahmed was also allegedly in possession of marijuana.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

(Scroll down for video)A teacher was arrested after he sexually abused a boy without disclosing he was HIV positive.

Mario Hunt is a teacher, an assistant and assistant track coach at the Cahokia high school in Illinois. He is accused of having sex with a boy during school hours.

Hunt, 35, of Cahokia, Illinois is accused of molesting a 17-year-old, boy and exposing him to the HIV virus, and police said more victims have filed reports. Police said Hunt may have spread HIV to children at school after having sex with them knowing that he carries the virus.

He was arrested and charged with sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual abuse and transmission of HIV. Police have not publicly said if the boys were infected with HIV after the sexual contact occurred.

“How can a teacher betray a student like this? Having sex with anyone without disclosing that he has HIV is a crime, especially doing it to a student who trusted his teacher,” Susan Garcia, 30, of St. Louis, Illinois told YourJewishNews.com after hearing about the HIV positive teachers’s sexual abuse against his student.

Before this arrest, there had been a complaint against him for inappropriate social media posts to students. His bail was set at $300,000. Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

(Scroll down for video) An entire family was detained and sent for a mental health examination after they were found walking totally naked in the street, according to a statement released by North Carolina police.

Hopefully, they were at least wearing sunscreen in order to be protected from the strong sun.
Walking down a busy street in Charlotte, North Carolina, this weekend was a woman, about 20-years-old clutching her newborn baby, and her mother, about 40-years-old. A toddler was also with them totally naked.

the naked family caused a traffic jam on the busy Providence Road.
"They were all totally naked," Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Capt. Rod Farley said while describing the appearance of the group. "They were just like Adam and Eve," he added.
Resident Jill Mead was driving by when she was shocked by the scene. “It blew my mind," she said.

When police arrived and questioned the group they told the officers that God told them to walk naked.
“Apparently, the Lord told them to undress and walk down the street," Farley said.
The naked family was taken to a nearby hospital for physical and mental evaluations.

“People all around the world will do the strangest things in the name of religion. Something is definitely wrong with this family as we all know that God did not speak with them. I wonder if they truly believe that God told them to walk naked,” Lisa Smith, 31, of Charlotte, North Carolina told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the naked family.

"The initial evaluation showed that nothing was wrong with the group besides the fact that they were naked," Farley said Saturday, after the incident.

A negligence claim was filed with the Department of Social Services, the police officer said.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
