Cardi B sent her prayers to the survivors of Haiti's devastating magnitude 7.2 earthquake that left over 1,300 people dead on Sunday.

The epicenter was located about 100 miles west of Haiti's capital city Port-au-Prince.

The devastating earthquake comes a month after Haiti's president Jovenel Moise was assassinated by armed members of a hit squad with ties to Miami and the Dominican Republic.

On Saturday, Cardi B, real name Belcalis Almanzar, took to social media to share her sympathy and prayers for the Haitians affected by the earthquake.

"I got a soft spot for Haiti and [its] people. They my cousins. I pray for Haiti they go thru soo much... God please cover that land and its people," she tweeted.

Tennis superstar Naomi Osaka, who was born in Japan, said she will donate all her prize money from an upcoming tournament to the Haitian people.

The Republic of Haiti is located on Hispaniola Island and shares its eastern border with the Dominican Republic where Cardi B's father was born.

Haiti has a history of killer earthquakes. Hispaniola Island sits between two large tectonic plates that are always active.

The 2010 earthquake in Haiti left an estimated 300,000 people dead and 1 million people without homes.

A gender reveal stunt in a Cessna plane went horribly wrong when the plane crashed into the sea as the expectant parents looked on.

The accident happened off the coast of Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico, on March 30, Yahoo reports.

Cellphone video shows the light aircraft dropping pink powder to reveal the gender of the unborn child as a girl.

The plane flew overhead and then dropped out of the sky. Shocked family and friends screamed as the plane crashed.

Authorities say four people were on the plane. Two people -- the pilot and the co-pilot --died. The Navy Guard did not explain if the other two people were rescued.

Gender reveal parties have increased in popularity over the years. Some of the parties have ended in tragedy, including a 26-year-old dad who died in an explosion.

The blogger who started the gender reveal craze 10 years ago spoke out after forest fires threatened lives during some parties.

"Stop having these stupid parties," wrote Jenna Myers Karvunidis, who blogs under High Gloss and Sauce on Facebook. "For the love of God, stop burning things down to tell everyone about your kid's penis. No one cares but you."

Amari Dancy thought she chose the perfect hiding place during a game of hide and seek with her cousins while on coronavirus lockdown in her Virginia home.

The 18-year-old chose to hide in a washing machine but the game ended when she got stuck in the machine and was unable to free herself.

"We already had hid underneath the bed, in the closet, and we couldn't go down to the basement," Dancy told NBC News.

Medics and the Prince Williams County Department of Fire and Rescue arrived to help rescue Dancy from the machine on Sunday, according to NBC News.

The heroes removed the machine's top and yanked Dancy out of the machine just before midnight Sunday.

"I mean it's pretty embarrassing, but all I can do is laugh it off. I had a laugh out of it, my family had a laugh out of it, I'm OK. As long as I'm OK, that's all that matters to me."

Video from the rescue operation made its way to social media where Dancy became an overnight star and racked up a few hundred new followers.

"I just wanted to be out of there," she said.

Jose Mangual

13-year-old Jovan "JoJo" Mangual's name has been added to the list of known victims who were crushed under tons of mud, trees and rocks in Oso, Washington's mudslide on March 22.

JoJo's body was found in the mudslide and officially identified on Thursday.

JoJo's father, Army Staff Sgt. Jose Mangual, showed up at the site every day, wading through the debris looking for his son.

“I want to be there, I want to find my son. I wouldn’t do it any other way,” he said in an interview with CNN Monday.

Mangual searched through mud that was 70 feet deep in some places. “Of the five deployments I’ve been on, nothing compares to this,” he said.

Objects spotted on satellite images

The missing Malaysia Airlines plane reportedly flew on for four hours after it lost contact with radar and vanished early Saturday morning.

Flight MH370 carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew members has now been missing for 6 days. 12 countries are involved in the massive search efforts.

A Wall Street Journal aviation reporter, quoting a source at Rolls Royce (the maker of the plane's engines), says flight MH370's engines continued to send data long after the transponder turned off.

But Malaysia officials -- who have been less than forthcoming -- denied the Wall Street Journal report.

Malaysia aviation experts also dismissed satellite images released by China yesterday, saying there was no debris found floating at that location in the waters south of Vietnam.

flight MH370 flew hundreds of miles off course

Malaysian military officials say the missing Malaysia Airlines plane made a U-turn about 40 minutes after taking off from Kuala Lumpur early Saturday morning. Flight MH370 suddenly vanished from civilian radar at 35,000 feet and descended about 600 feet. Military radar shows the plane flying in a westerly direction hundreds of miles off course, and at a low altitude for about an hour before the military radar lost track of it.

This is an interesting development because it means someone in the cockpit turned the transponder off. The transponder sends transmissions about the plane's location to air traffic control radar.

Ships and planes from 10 countries are participating in the search for the plane. Officials are ruling out terrorism. Flight MH370 was carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew members when it disappeared.
