Her life jacket was later found, but there was still no sign of her.Adults were in the boat at the time of the accident.San Diego lifeguard Lt. Rich Stropky said that the boat was not operating under its own power when it happened, and was drifting with the waves and wind.Rescue efforts were halted around sunset as conditions it became too dark for divers to safely continue.The lake has clearer water than most, a help for search crews, but it also has a lot of underwater debris, Stropky said.“There’s big huge rocks you can get snagged on, and there’s lots of trees and branches and that makes this type of thing always dangerous,” he said.Search crews were back in the water after daybreak Sunday, and the lake will be closed for recreation Sunday to aid in the recovery, according to Foster.Lifeguards spoke to the boat operator and were able to narrow down a location to restart the search using SONAR, according to San Diego Fire-Rescue spokeswoman Monica Munoz.

San Diego DA clears police in custody death of Earl McNeil

McNeil died in a hospital 16 days later due to brain damage from lack of oxygen, she said.According to the medical examiner’s office, a high level of methamphetamine in McNeil’s system could have been enough to cause his death. McNeil was agitated for two hours starting when he first came into contact with National City police officers in front of their headquarters, and that could have led to heart and respiratory failure, Stephan said.Stephan played a 55-minute compilation video of the events following McNeil’s arrest, including paramedics trying to revive him as they prepared to take him in for medical and psychological evaluation.Before playing the video for reporters, Stephan informed McNeil’s family that officers and deputies would not be facing criminal charges in connection with his death. She said they were respectful of her decision, calling them “extremely wonderful people.”McNeil’s death prompted a series of protests and arrests at city council meetings in National City in recent months.The events that led to the one-time gang member’s death began shortly before 5:30 a.m. May 26, when McNeil called the National City Police Department’s emergency-communications center from a telephone near the entrance to NCPD headquarters.“During his conversation with the dispatcher, McNeil requested to speak with an officer and made paranoid, threatening and irrational statements,” according to a statement from the agency. “When officers arrived to speak with McNeil, he was very agitated (and) paranoid and said he was in possession of a controlled substance.”In order to “de-escalate the situation,” officers handcuffed McNeil, the memo states. At that point, he allegedly began resisting and spitting at the personnel, prompting them to put him in maximum restraints and take him to San Diego Central Jail.“During the intake process with county jail staff, McNeil exhibited signs of medical distress, and NCPD officers called for paramedics,” according to police. “Paramedics responded and treated McNeil at the jail. McNeil was transported by paramedics to UCSD Medical Center for additional treatment.”McNeil died in the hospital on June 11.Stephan said McNeil was an informant for the District Attorney’s Office in the 2003 murders of two women and the wounding of a 7-year-old boy in the Dr. J’s liquor store shooting. McNeil — who had a substantial criminal record — was a witness in the case and the only benefit he received was relocation money for his family to move out of San Diego due to safety concerns, the county’s top prosecutor said.Warning: The video contains content and strong language that viewers may find disturbing.

UK for fair peaceful elections in Bangladesh

first_imgUK releases the 2017 Foreign & Commonwealth Office report on `Human Rights and Democracy` on Monday.The United Kingdom has said they would continue to stress long-term importance to Bangladesh’s development of “free, fair, inclusive and peaceful” elections, says a new report.In its Bangladesh chapter of the 2017 Foreign & Commonwealth Office report on ‘Human Rights and Democracy’ the UK said they would continue to engage closely with Bangladesh on the Rohingya issue, according to UNB news agency.The UK government praised the Bangladeshi government and people for having accepted and assisted over 700,000 Rohingya refugees who fled Myanmar from August 2017 onwards.The UK also welcomed repeated government assurances that any returns of Rohingya refugees would be voluntary, safe, well-informed and dignified one.The UK took an international lead in supporting the refugees and in mobilising international attention to the situation in Rakhine State.Conditions in Rohingya refugee camps raised particular risks of violence against women, many of whom had already suffered appalling violence in Rakhine State, says the report.Working with UN and other agencies, the UK ensured the humanitarian response included help and support for the survivors of sexual and gender-based violence.It says they will support progress towards gender equality, including on girls’ education, where a focus will be on promoting equity in access, retention and learning outcomes for the most marginalised girls; combating modern slavery; pressing the authorities on enforced disappearances and extrajudicial executions.The UK will continue to engage closely with Bangladesh to support freedom of expression and other democratic freedoms.The report observed that the human rights situation in Bangladesh saw no substantive improvement in 2017.Credible reports of enforced disappearances, extrajudicial killings and torture by government agencies continued, as did government pressure on opposition parties, civil society and the media, claimed the report.The report observes that the human rights situation in Myanmar deteriorated sharply in 2017, with the crisis in Rakhine dominating the second half of the year.The UK continued to have serious concerns about human rights, including ethnic cleansing, restrictions on freedom of religion or belief, freedom of expression, and a lack of accountability for human rights violations and abuses, according to the report.Looking ahead to 2018, the report says the UK stands ready to help the government of Myanmar implement the recommendations of the Advisory Commission on Rakhine State.”The UK also welcomes the establishment of an international advisory board. Any returns of refugees to Burma (Myanmar) must be safe, voluntary and dignified and have independent monitoring by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees,” said the report.Humanitarian support to refugees in Bangladesh, through DFID, totalled 59 million pounds in 2017, said the report.”In 2018, we’ll continue funding important projects on freedom of expression and preventing sexual violence, while expanding our work to help tackle hate speech and other underlying drivers of inter-communal tensions,” says the report.last_img

PM in the list of top 100 global thinkers

first_imgPM in the list of top 100 global thinkersPrime minister Sheikh Hasina has made her room in the list of top 100 global thinkers as the famous US-based Foreign Policy journal came up with a register of world leading thinkers.“Sheikh Hasina has responded to the greatest security challenge facing Bangladesh with a generosity . . . Rather than turn away the approximate 700,000 Rohingya who fled persecution in Myanmar, Hasina welcomed them and allowed them to remain in her country,” the journal wrote justifying their decision for incorporating in the list of its Current Issue: Winter 2019.Sheikh Hasina has been named among the 10 top global thinkers in the category “Defense and Security”.Referring to the background of the list, the Foreign Policy said they selected the leading global thinkers cautiously considering their stake in shaping the world mind.“In a year of worldwide economic crisis and dangerous wars, of radical innovation and newfound realpolitik, street revolution and blunt rhetoric, we could think of no better way to make sense of it than through the big ideas of those who shape our understanding of the world,” the article read.last_img read more

Qatar council backs permanent residency law for foreigners

first_imgQatar relies massively on foreign labour. AFPQatar has moved closer to granting permanent residency to foreigners after its senior legislative body approved a draft law, first announced in the wake of the ongoing Gulf crisis.State media reported the Shura Council agreed on Monday to back a law which would grant residency to expatriates who provide valuable services as well as to the children of Qatari women married to non-Qataris.”The Advisory (Shura) Council approved a draft law on permanent residency,” the Qatar News Agency reported.Permanent residents would be allowed to have free state education, healthcare and be given the right to own property.It is thought to be the first such law proposed by one of the energy-rich Gulf states.It was first announced last August just two months after Qatar was boycotted by neighbouring former allies in a bitter diplomatic dispute.Like other nations in the region, Qatar relies massively on foreign labour.Its current population of 2.71 million, a record, is made up of almost 90 per cent non-nationals, many helping the country prepare to host the 2022 World Cup.There are some 315,000 Qatari nationals.The residency proposal will now be considered by Qatar’s cabinet and Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani before it becomes law.last_img read more

Suspended HISD Chief Auditor Back To Work

first_img Share The chief auditor for the Houston Independent School District has been ordered back to work, five months after he was abruptly suspended. In March, HISD informed Richard Patton that he was being suspended and reassigned to home duty for alleged “misconduct and other performance concerns.”HISD never gave an example or further explained his suspension.It came months after Patton questioned the district’s administration of its school construction projects and a massive budget shortfall of more than $200 million.Patton later filed a whistle-blower grievance, claiming he was retaliated against because he reported suspicious activity to law enforcement officers.Now HISD says in a statement that it “has resolved the issues related to his temporary reassignment.” He’s been directed back to duty as chief auditor, effective Wednesday.last_img read more

DC Authorities ExCon had Help in Wealthy Familys Slaying

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) — An ex-convict likely had help from others holding a family captive inside their mansion for at least 18 hours, authorities said.During their ordeal, the business executive and his wife told others to stay away — even ordering a pizza deliverer to leave two pies at the door — as they frantically arranged for $40,000 in cash to be dropped off at the home.But once the money was left on the seat of a red sports car in the family’s garage, Daron Dylon Wint struck and stabbed Savvas Savopoulos, the CEO of the American Iron Works company where he had once worked as a welder, Wint’s charging document said. At a court hearing Friday, Wint was ordered held in jail on a murder charge.Savopoulos’ wife, Amy, their 10-year-old son Philip and their housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa also were killed, and then the house was set on fire with matches and a flammable liquid.The fire began on the queen-sized mattress where the boy’s body was stabbed and burned, authorities said.Firefighters found the adults’ bodies in the next room. Evidence shows the women suffered “blunt force and sharp force trauma” before the $4.5 million mansion was set on fire.Authorities linked what may have been two different men to Amy Savopoulos’ blue Porsche 911 the day of the killings. One, “with short, well-groomed hair,” was spotted driving erratically away from the crime scene. Another, wearing a dark hoodie, was videotaped carrying a bucket near where the Porsche was set on fire later that day.The pizza gave Wint away. His DNA was found on the crust of a partially eaten slice of pepperoni, one of two pies ordered the night of May 13 while the family and the housekeeper were “being held against their will,” an affidavit said.A woman believed to be Amy Savopoulos paid for the pizzas by credit card and told the delivery person to leave the food on the porch, because she was “nursing her sick child” and would not come to the door, the document says.Wint, who was tracked down by U.S. Marshals and arrested Thursday night with two other men and three women, appeared in a white jumpsuit in court Friday.A court document said authorities believe the killings “required the presence and assistance of more than one person.” None of the people detained with Wint were immediately charged with any crimes.Wint is being represented by Natalie Lawson, a public defender. His defense argued that authorities lack probable cause, since a suspect seen driving the Porsche had short hair. Wanted posters issued while Wint was a fugitive showed him with long hair.D.C. Superior Court Judge Errol Arthur agreed with Assistant U.S. Attorney Emily Miller to deny bail, noting that Wint was arrested with some of the missing money, and that the DNA from the pizza ties him to the slayings.U.S. Marshals and police had tracked Wint to New York and back before dozens of officers swarmed a car and truck in the nation’s capital, arresting the whole group without a fight.Wint’s record was cited as a reason he should be held. He was arrested three times for assault in 2006 and 2007, serving a 10-month sentence in New York, and then convicted of assaulting a girlfriend in Maryland in 2009.In 2010, he pleaded guilty to malicious destruction of property after he allegedly broke into a woman’s apartment, stole a television, vandalized her car and threatened to kill her infant daughter. Also in 2010, Wint was arrested carrying a 2-foot-long machete and a BB pistol outside the American Iron Works headquarters, but weapons charges were dropped after he pleaded guilty to possessing an open container of alcohol.Acting District of Columbia U.S. Attorney Vincent Cohen said outside the courthouse that prosecutors’ “work is not done” and that they “intend to unseal additional search warrants in the coming days.”___Contributors include Brian Witte, Alex Brandon, Sarah Brumfield and Ben Nuckols in Washington; Meredith Somers in Upper Marlboro, Maryland; Colleen Long in New York City and Carolyn Thompson in Buffalo, New York.last_img read more
