We’re gonna have to do something about these trees.

Fallout TROME - Was it a kidney stone, or multi-organ failure and septic shock? We’re gonna have to let the judge decide. Or the jury. I’m not sure how they do it at the Superior Court in Fairfield, Connecticut.

They don’t tell us much else. They do give us this sort of cheesy comic horror show intro vibe with this tidbit, though:

AEW is entertainment wrestling.
‘Dynamite was held in Ontario, California this week and during Red Velvet’s match against Cora Jade, quite a few fans in the crowd were noticeably distracted for a good portion of the bout.’
‘According to PWInsider, there was a good reason for the fans in the crowd being distracted as another fan in the audience needed assistance from EMTs, leading to the crowd going silent during parts of the match.’ [Emphasis added]
Actually, according to PWInsider:
‘That situation is why the crowd was distracted and muted during that match live.’ [Emphasis added]
“Muted” and “silent” are, in this case, two different things.
It sounds like they didn’t even stop the match. They just muted the crowd in the broadcast and the wrestlers “wrestled” on through. That’s kinda funny.

‘He spent the next week in the hospital with a collapsed lung.’

‘[The] Air India pilot was getting trained for Boeing 777 and was at its flight dispatch when he suddenly suffered a cardiac arrest and collapsed. The pilot was around 37 years of age […]’
The article includes this section on possible causes of the increase in pilot and passenger deaths:
‘Reasons For Young Deaths At Airport
According to various reports, pilots of the Indian carriers have been complaining of tiredness and stress and blamed their ‘punishing’ rostering with back to back night shifts and allocation of flights which makes them stay away from their homes for days together.’
So that schedule affects the young more than the old? And passengers as well as pilots? That’s TROME logic right there.
Anyway, yes — there’s no mention of the shots in the article. There never is.
