Woman Killed By Runaway Shopping Cart

A 60-year-old grandmother was killed by an overloaded shopping cart in Shanghai, China. The accident happened at the Lianhua supermarket on Friday morning.

CCTV footage captured the woman pushing her own cart down a flat escalator in the store. The woman apparently heard a sound that made her turn around seconds before the runaway cart sped down the escalator and crashed into her, throwing her violently against a concrete pillar.

Seconds later, 2 men are seen sprinting down the escalator to help the woman. But she died from massive internal bleeding.

Coy Mathis believes he is a girl

A 6-year-old boy who believes he is a girl won the right to use the girls room at his school after his parents threatened to sue the Colorado school system for requiring him to use a separate bathroom.

Coy, who has identified as a girl since age 4, was pulled from the Eagleside Elementary School in Fountain, CO, and home schooled while the lawsuit wound its way through the courts.

He has not undergone a sex-change operation. Therefore, he is still physically a boy.

Coy’s parents, Kathryn and Jeremy Mathis, were shocked that the school prohibited their child, who has boy’s genitals, from using the girls’ restroom.

“This automatically singles her out and stigmatizes her,” Kathryn Mathis said. “It sets her up for future harassing and bullying, and creates an unsafe environment. The school has a wonderful opportunity to teach students that differences are OK, and we should embrace their differences, instead of teaching them to discriminate against someone who is a little different.”
