A toddler son was thrown into a river in September following which his father is now behind the bars who called him ‘the devil’ before throwing his son into the river. In connection with the death of his 11-month-old son, Zakari Bennett-Eko, the father, Zak Bennett-Eko, 23 has been convicted of manslaughter, according to the BBC News reports.
According to court documents, Bennett-Eko believed that his child was evil as he had paranoid schizophrenia. On September 11, Bennett-Eko pushed his son in a stroller and left his home. On the way, he met two women whom he claimed were evil and were trying to harm his son. According to Manchester Evening News, he then began to swing his son from side to side as he continued to a river and ultimately swung his baby into the river. A witness attempted to save the toddler son but in vain.
The river took the baby too far whose dead body was later found by the authorities. After tossing his son into the river, Bennett-Eko rushed to the Lock Keeper pub in Radcliffe and entailed the sequence of events that happened with him. Police then arrived at the venue and questioned Bennett-Eko about his son. He replied that he had tossed him in the river. Moreover, Dr. Qurashi of the University of Manchester believed that Bennett-Eko’s mental condition wasn’t that bad to be unaware of what he is doing to his own son.
In addition to that, Eko also admitted that he did hesitate a little before throwing his son during the assessment trials. He told the doctor that he does not have a realistic answer to account for his hesitation and as a result of which, he is now facing lockup in a secure psychiatric unit.
California cops’ Memorial Day tribute busted by spelling police
Just throw in the “e” for effort.
A well-meaning salute to heroes by the San Jose Police Department was cited for bad spelling on Twitter, where the cops botched an operative word.
“Remembering and Honoring Our Heros,” reads a graphic celebrating Memorial Day.
Several commenters, all of whom should expect to get a ticket if pulled over for speeding in the Silicon Valley area, noted that a heros is a type of fish found in South America.
Only 10 people who’ve gotten Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine have had severe allergic reactions – and more than 4 million doses have been given out
The odds of having a severe allergic reaction after receiving Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine are looking incredibly slim.
On Friday the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released its first comprehensive trove of data detailing how many people have had confirmed allergic reactions after getting Moderna’s new shot.
Among more than 4 million doses of the vaccine that were administered nationwide from December 21 to January 10, just 10 people reported confirmed cases of anaphylaxis after vaccination, which is a severe allergic reaction requiring administration of epinephrine. That rate of anaphylaxis cases is 2.5 per million.
An additional 43 vaccine-takers had less severe nonanaphylactic allergic reactions, with symptoms including itching (especially in the mouth and throat), rashes, and “sensations of throat closure.”
There have been no reports of death so far, and patients have generally recovered well after these allergic reactions, though five of the 10 severe cases had to be admitted to intensive care first. ( Pfizer’s new COVID-19 vaccine , too, has been very rarely associated with severe allergic reactions .)

All of the confirmed cases of anaphylaxis after administration of Moderna’s shot so far were in women, which isn’t a huge surprise when you consider that most of the non-elderly people who’ve been vaccinated so far are healthcare workers, an industry which is 76% female in the US.
In addition, according to CDC data, more than 2.4 million woman have gotten Moderna’s shot, compared with 1.4 million men (an additional 125,000-plus people who got Moderna shots didn’t record a sex.)
Most of the anaphylactic reactions happened within just minutes of vaccination. Only one of the ten cases took longer than 30 minutes to present, post-vaccination:
For these reasons, the CDC is recommending that all vaccine sites have doses of epinephrine on hand, and that people who get vaccinated should wait 30 minutes at the vaccine site before heading off, just in case something happens.
“It’s important that anybody who has had anaphylaxis talk to their vaccinator about that, and make sure that if they choose to be vaccinated, they wait the 30 minutes,” Dr. Thomas Clark, who’s been tracking allergic reactions after vaccination at the CDC, told reporters earlier this month .
Nine of the 10 patients who had severe, allergic reactions after Moderna’s shot had a history of allergies, and the most common allergies among them were to drugs (six patients). Just one patient with a severe reaction after vaccination had a food allergy.
“You know, many, many people with histories of allergies were vaccinated uneventfully,” Dr. Clark added.
People who do have an allergic reaction after their first shot of Moderna or Pfizer’s vaccine should not get their second dose, the CDC says.
