1. Hillary Clinton faints at 9/11 event ‘after becoming overheated’. Doctor confirms she’s suffering from pneumonia.
Hillary Clinton’s doctor has revealed the 68-year-old is suffering pneumonia, after she was seen collapsing at a 9/11 memorial service in New York.
The Democratic presidential candidate arrived at the event at around 8.15am but left suddenly around an hour-and-a-half later.
In a statement Dr. Lisa R. Bardack said: “Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies. On Friday, during follow up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia. She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule.
“While at this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated. I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely.”
The diagnosis comes after Donald Trump’s team and his supporters repeatedly made claims that the Democratic candidate has health issues and is physically incapable of being president.
Nick Merrill, a Clinton spokesman said: “During the ceremony, she felt overheated, so she departed to go to her daughter’s apartment, and is feeling much better,”
Mrs Clinton emerged from her daughter’s apartment just before lunchtime telling reporters she was “feeling great.”
“It’s a beautiful day in New York,” she said.
2. Newborn twins left in coma after being cared for by unregulated nanny.
Newborn twins have been rushed to hospital and spent 20 hours in a coma after being left in the care of a nanny sourced from a popular Facebook page.
The parents of the twins hired the nanny to assist the mum in their home. The mother was present while the nanny helped care for her newborns.
According to The Courier Mail, they were rushed to hospital last week when their mother could not stir either of them for a night feed.
Queensland police have confirmed they are investigating suspected harm to children and the nanny has been charged with working without a blue card. The nanny was found on a 3,000 member online parenting forum.
She told the parents she had a Working With Children Check but unfortunately the family was not aware that they needed to sight this documentation and verify it.
The babies have since recovered and returned home.
3. Dogs killed, revived and then killed again in Monash Uni experiment.
In an experiment designed to test how well hearts can be preserved before organ transplants when the donor has already died, a number of greyhounds have been suffocated and then revived after having their hearts removed and reinserted.
The experiment at Monash University has been dubbed by animal activists as “shocking”.
Humane Research Australia chief executive Helen Marston told Fairfax Media it was unnecessarily cruel to the greyhounds involved because they were effectively killed twice.
“People believe these things happened a long time ago or somewhere overseas, but these experiments are happening right here right now, under our noses,” she said.
“Quite a lot of them are paid for with our tax dollars.”
