On February 13th, 2012, a Ukrainian tourist died after being struck with a speed boat‘s propeller, while on vacation in Sharm al-Sheikh, Egypt. The man and his friend (who filmed the incident) were staying at City Sharm Hotel, which has a 4-star rating. As the man started to come up for a breath of air, a speed boat and its propeller crashed through the man and severely cutting him. Although he was still alive after the incident, the hotel wasn’t prepared for such an incident and the Ukrainian tourist bled to death.
If you are not epileptic and feel like seeing the full 13 minutes of the incident, please see below:
Трагедия произошла в Египте 13.02.2012 г. Администрация отеля и компания Пегас никак не отреагировала на трагедию. Россияне, Украинцы да и другие братья славяне не как не защищены от хаоса этой феодальной страны. Всё это произошло практически в акватории пляжа отеля.
In English (rough translation):
The tragedy occurred in Egypt 2/13/2012, the hotel management company, and Pegasus did not react to the tragedy. Russians, Ukrainians and even other brothers Slavs are not as vulnerable to the chaos of feudal country. All this happened almost in the waters of the beach hotel.
The British native was having sex with her husband in the Adeje area on the Spanish resort island of Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands, when she suddenly fell from the balcony, and over the handrail. Luckily, she was spared because her ankle was caught in between two bars and prevented her from slamming into the marble floor below.
Her husband was able to call emergency services who later had to remove the bars to free the naked woman. She was fortunate to have only suffered a broken ankle.
A police spokesman said: ‘Her good luck was that getting her leg caught stopped her from falling. Her bad luck was that she broke her ankle, was naked and couldn’t get free.
‘It isn’t a police matter so she isn’t on any charges but we warned her and her husband to think about safe sex in the future.
‘Had her leg not been trapped between the banisters, the consequences could have been much more serious.’
This must have been one hell of a vacation and they’ll most definitely be bringing home an awesome story. Most adventurous sex? These two take the cake on that one for sure. I have to admit I’m somewhat jealous that I can’t tell someone I almost died during a sexcapade.

David Shawfield is demanding that he be left in jail after he was originally brought in for leaving his children in a boiling hot car. The father, from Miami, Florida, had apparently yelled to a friend that came to get his three children, “Don’t bond me out! I never want to get out.”
The 49-year-old allegedly earlier told an arresting officer: ‘That was only like the second time I had done this. Oh, well. I could use a vacation’ after being told he was going to jail.
When a deputy was dispatched to come and pick up the kids, the arresting officer wrote: ‘The driver became irate and walked over…and began to yell at the children, “See? I’m going to jail because you wanted something to drink. I’m never going to get out. I hope you’re happy”.’
The arresting officer reported: ‘The suspect’s eyes were bloodshot and his pupils were fixed. His face was flushed and he was unstable on his feet. The suspect [told me he] was on sleeping pills and psych meds.’

A group of Papua New Guinean tribesman hunted a foreign couple through the forest to a river, then shot them with arrows and pelted them with rocks, the Associated Press reported Tuesday. Matt Scheurich, a 28-year-old New Zealander, was struck in the chest and stomach by arrows as the tribesmen attempted to molest his french girlfriend, an anthropologist, last month.
Tours to villages in PNG’s remote highlands, which are marketed as unique opportunities to visit fascinating indigenous communities, are becoming increasingly popular. Unfortunately, violence is perhaps the only common theme among native cultures.
PNG’s terrain is so rough that many villages have entirely different traditions and languages than their neighbors. One rite of passage many of these peoples shared (and may still share in places) is headhunting: Young men are not considered adult until they kill an enemy in battle and behead him. Think of it as a strange combination bar mitzvah and bris.
While Scheurich’s head was probably not the prize the tribesmen were after, it can be inferred that their intentions were probably not benign.
Meeting diverse peoples has become a priority for international travelers – no doubt a positive development – but talking to strangers can be risky even for adults. Not all savages are noble (and some nobles are savage).
The premium placed on the exotic has driven a certain sort of person to take increasingly extreme risks as the beaten path has gotten beaten wider and wider. India is easy, so travelers head to Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka is peaceful, so they move on to Borneo. Borneo is accessible, so travelers look to PNG.
PNG is incredibly dangerous. Hurrah.
The U.S. State Department recommends that visitors take precautions before traveling in the highlands and in the capital Port Moresby, which is basically Mos Eisley on the ocean.
Apparently an addendum should be added to those recommendations advising visitors to cover their tracks.
Okay, so I’ve heard many things about Papau New Guinea, including a tribe that has young men eat the semen of the older tribesmen to enter into adulthood; To me, that just sounds like a blowjob, but whatever. Now I hear that they are HUNTING tourists?! I am no longer interested (nor was I ever) in visiting this place. I’d much rather play video games about hunting than actually be hunted. I’d also like for my 13 year old boy (if I had one) to just get a shaky voice as he’s entering manhood and not have to deal with sucking off his elders.
