JUN 26 REPORTS
1) "I have late-stage ovarian failure": Amouranth backs out of Ibai's La Velada boxing championship citing medical issues
Late stage ovarian failure. Ah… yeah.
Jun 26 - From Twitter: ‘I tend to keep my medical stuff private —and I would have kept my current situation out of the public eye but I feel like I owe you all an explanation on account of a few cancelled high profile appearances… I was informed in March that I have late stage ovarian failure. Beyond that, my body has been in perimenopause/menopause for some time. Over the last year I have noticed a lot of confusing changes (mental and physical) that had no obvious explanations, but just kind of shrugged them off. I was completely unaware of anything serious until March. Since then I have undergone many tests and diagnostic procedures & my doctors concluded that not only do I have these conditions, but that my case is accelerated, as my hormones and other markers indicate a more advanced prognosis.
I will be undergoing daily injections for 7-14 days during which I will (potentially) suffer from headaches, nausea and aches, which would be no big deal, and was also warned against “high impact physical activities”. I found out the seriousness of my diagnosis after I had already agreed to appear in the La Velada boxing event, and decided I would go forward with it and wait to do the injections until AFTER the event so that I could still compete. But due to extreme medical developments, I have to start them today.
I had hoped to just box through the symptoms, as I could handle a little nausea or some headaches, but my medical team strenuously vetoed that decision due to the “potential for extreme injury or death” related to a heightened chance of my ovaries torsioning/twisting while undergoing the treatment and doing extreme physical activity. I regretfully have to drop out of La Velada last minute. I'm incredibly upset about this, and I'm sorry to anyone I've let down.
I'm hoping for a quick and painless treatment, and maybe I can get the opportunity to get in the ring next year if everything goes well.’
Amouranth is a 28 year-old Twitch streamer famous for streaming herself doing things like hot-tubbing and playing video games in a bikini. I don’t need to point out she’s not a likely candidate for postmenopausal symptoms.
2) Amazon Says a Worker’s Death Was Not Work-Related. But a 911 Call Appears to Contradict the Company’s Narrative.
‘On the afternoon of June 2, Amazon worker Roger A. Kieca died after suffering a medical emergency while working at the company’s cross-dock facility in Joliet, Illinois. The temperature in Joliet that afternoon was 90 degrees.
Amazon has repeatedly denied that workplace conditions had anything to do with the death of the 59-year-old, and stated that the tragedy was “due to a non-work related medical incident.”
“There is no evidence that this unfortunate incident was related to tasks the employee was performing as part of his standard work in our climate-controlled facility that did not exceed 77 degrees,” Maureen Lynch Vogel, an Amazon spokesperson, wrote in an email on June 4, two days after Kieca’s death.’
Here’s a joke:
‘New information collected by In These Times and Workday Magazine also raises questions about the circumstances surrounding Kieca’s death. An audio recording of a 911 call placed by another Amazon employee, which was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, shows that the individual making the call believed the cause of Kieca’s medical distress was possibly “dehydration” — the only potential cause cited by the caller. This recording appears to contradict Amazon’s narrative that the cause of death was not related to conditions in and around the warehouse, and raises questions about whether his death could have been prevented.’
How is that a joke? Here’s where they got “dehydration” from:
‘After his symptoms changed, Amazon says it called 911 (when asked, the company would not reveal what his initial symptoms were or how they changed, citing unspecified privacy issues). The company did not specify who at Amazon made the call, but said the call came from someone with the company.
In the audio recording of the call, which was made at 1:19 p.m. on June 2, a woman can be heard requesting an ambulance. She explained that Kieca was within the “medical facility,” where he was unconscious but breathing, and had medical staff with him.
The dispatcher asked, “Do you know what caused this?” After getting no response, he repeated, “Ma’am, do you know what caused this?”
She replied: “Not sure. Dehydration.” Less than two minutes later in the recording, emergency responders can be heard saying that Kieca had gone into cardiac arrest.’
Got that? Goes unconscious. Goes into cardiac arrest. They’re thinking dehydration. Why? The Amazon worker pulled the diagnosis out of thin air.
‘He worked as an electric pallet jack operator at Amazon’s MDW2 cross-dock warehouse that allows the company to ship in bulk and is known for the rapid movement of goods.’
His job was to walk behind a machine that both lifted pallets and drove them. He worked the switch and steered the machine. It sounds like a lot of walking, and that’s about it.
This sounds like a classic medical emergency. Actually, it sounds like a classic shot injury. And everybody’s wringing their hands, working feverishly — hell, suing each other — to ensure the diagnosis is ABTV (Anything But the Vaccine).
‘One person died after they drove into oncoming traffic on STH 57 in the Town of Lyndon and crashed into another vehicle.
According to the Sheboygan County Sheriff's Office, the incident happened on the southbound lanes of STH 57 near County Road N. The two vehicles crashed head-on. The person who was driving on the wrong side of the road was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. The other driver was brought to the hospital with serious injuries.’
No mention of a medical emergency, but no worries — Detective Chad Rabbit is on the case. Medical emergency. For sure. How do I know? Look at the road. Google maps shows us Hwy 57 near Lyndon. Think how determined you’d have to be to drift into the otherbound lane on this road:
You can see from the distance marker that the meridian is about 40 ft. wide. The driver didn’t simply cross a double yellow line in the middle of the road, or cross a few feet of pavement. There’s 40 ft. of country farmland between the two lanes here. Something very seriously went wrong and it stayed wrong for some time before the crash happened. That’s my guess.
4) PLANE TRAGEDY Brit, 29, dies after falling unconscious on British Airways flight to the Caribbean with his mum
‘Local media said the London man became "unresponsive" on a flight on Thursday, June 22.’
‘Upon landing in Antigua, the passenger was rushed to a local hospital where he was treated in the emergency room.
However, he later died at around 6.30pm after revival attempts failed.
British Airways confirmed to The Sun Online there was a "medical emergency".
Cops are investigating the sudden death but do not suspect foul play.’
‘One woman was hospitalized after a medical emergency caused her to fall off the back of a motorcycle in Central Kansas.’
‘When officials arrived, they said they found a 2002 Yamaha motorcycle driven by Dennis B. Barr, 56, of Great Bend, had been headed south on the roadway.
KHP noted that Barr’s passenger, Sherri R. Landes, 53, of Hutchinson, suffered a medical emergency and fell off the bike.’
She fell off the bike. Gnarly.
‘A medical emergency caused the driver of one Jeep in Shawnee Co. to veer off the interstate and down a steep embankment over the weekend.
‘[…] a 2014 Jeep Wrangler driven by Guy Niederhauser, 36, of Kansas City, Mo., had been headed east on the interstate when Niederhauser had a medical emergency.
KHP said the emergency caused the Jeep to veer off the interstate and down a steep embankment into the tree line.
Officials noted that Niederhauser was treated for minor injuries by AMR at the scene, however, he was not taken to a local hospital. He was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.’
Not taken to the hospital. A lot of times what happens is people just pass out and then come to again. Weird.
7)Wrongway crash that killed 32-year-old also claims his 3-year-old’s life: She ‘ran into her daddy’s open arms’
‘A 3-year-old girl died of her injuries a month after an Oakdale vehicle crash that also took her father’s life.
Alex Ripka, 32, was driving to drop his daughter off at her grandparent’s house, so they could take care of her while he worked at a friend’s farm, according to a GoFundMe. He needed to be there by 4:30 a.m.
William Alexander Flores-Zamora, 28, of St. Paul, was driving the wrong way on Interstate 694 — travelling south in the northbound left lane — when he crashed head-on into the car that Ripka was driving on June 1 at 2:24 a.m., according to the Minnesota State Patrol. Flores-Zamora and Ripka both died at the scene.’
Nothing in the story about the driver having suffered from some kind of medical emergency that precipitated the crash. But you can see it’s the same situation as the earlier story: that’s about a 40 foot-wide grass meridian the driver had to cross in order to end up driving the wrong way in the otherbound lane. They were out. There’s no way around it.
‘It was a chilly January morning when Karen Silverio suddenly collapsed as she was walking into work as a standardized patient at Rowan-Virtua School of Osteopathic Medicine.’
‘That same morning, Rowan University police officer Patrolman Rachel Hare had been an officer for just six months and had just finished her morning briefing when a call came through dispatch reporting an unconscious female. Patrolman Hare and Sgt. Maurice Anderson arrived first at the scene where they found Silverio unconscious with no pulse and a purple complexion. Hare began giving CPR compressions. It was the first time she had ever performed this life-saving procedure on a person.’
‘Moments later, Krzysztof Zembrzuski, now a fourth-year medical student at Rowan-Virtua SOM, pulled into the parking lot for his rotation in the Geriatrics department when he spotted Silverio on the ground with the police officers. He instinctively sprang into action to help the officers and rotate CPR compressions.’
‘There seemed to be little hope when paramedics arrived and transported Silverio to Jefferson Stratford Hospital. She had not been breathing for 45 minutes.’
‘Nine days later, Silverio, who had been in a coma and on a ventilator in the ICU, was released from the hospital with a full recovery. She was diagnosed with a rare heart condition called mitral annular disjunction and given a defibrillator and pacemaker.’
‘A man needed emergency medical treatment at an RAF parade in Wendover yesterday (25 June).
Thames Valley Police reports that it assisted a man who was suffering a “medical emergency” at yesterday’s event.'
Paramedics treated the man at the scene, before he was rushed to hospital.’
‘On Saturday June 24, 2023 at approximately 1:53 pm, the Effingham County Sheriff’s Department was notified of an unresponsive female at Lake Sara. The female and her friends were staying at a private residence along Shumway Cove. The friends advised the female was entering the water from the dock ladder when she suffered a medical emergency. Her friends who were on the dock at the time assisted in getting her on a water mat and called 911. The female was transported to HSHS St. Anthony Hospital where she was pronounced deceased at 3:01 pm.’
She just got into the water and bam! We’ve seen this so many times. Drowning numbers absolutely have to be off the charts these days. They must be.
‘A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "We were called to a medical emergency at a private address on Foley Street. Two ambulances, a paramedic officer, and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford attended the scene.
"Upon arrival we found a man in a critical condition. He received treatment from ambulance staff at the scene and was conveyed to the Royal Stoke University Hospital via land ambulance with treatment continuing en-route.”’
‘Officials with the Utah Highway Patrol reported a car collided with a semi-truck then continued to hit the center median on the highway.
The driver of what appeared to be a blue Nissan was transported to a nearby hospital in critical condition. It was unclear if the driver of the semi-truck sustained any injuries.
Officials said the crash blocked the two left lanes of the highway and was closed for about two hours while crews cleared the scene.
The cause of the crash remained under investigation, however officials believe the driver of the car may have experienced a medical emergency.’
I believe they may be right.
