HORRIFIC: Woman Kills in Escalator as Metal Panel Gave Way

A woman identified as Xiang Liujuan, 30, was reportedly killed after falling into an escalator in a shopping centre in central China on Sunday.

Xiang was able to push her child to safety as she fell in after a metal panel at the top of the escalator gave way, causing her and her toddler to stumble.

Unconfirmed reports said that maintenance works had been carried out on the escalator recently, and workmen had replaced the metal panel but forgotten to secure it with screws.
Safe to say 'beware of escalators?  May the soul of the reposed rest om peace!

SAD: Grandmum Cissy to bury Bobbi Kristina Brown as she dies at 22

It must be a very sad and emotional time for Cissy Houston and the Brown's family as they lose Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of Bobby Brown and late Whitney Houston on Sunday 26th July, 2015.

Bobbi Kristina’s grandmother, the singer Cissy Houston, was named Bobbi Kristina’s co-guardians with Bobby Brown in May. She had to bury Whitney when she died under similar circumstances as her daughter in 2012 and now she has to bury her granddaughter as well.

My heart and prayers are with Cissy and the Brown's families.
