4. Mum saves son before plunging into escalator mechanism in department store in China

Warning: The following video has some disturbing content. Viewer discretion is advised.

This is a tragic ending for a mum who managed to save her two-year-old son just before she fell through an access cover of an escalator at the Anliang department store in Jingzhou in the central province of Hubei in China.

In this security camera footage, Xiang Liujuan, 30, was seen with her son going up using an escalator. Upon reaching the top, the access cover collapsed as she stepped on it. She managed to throw her son towards one of three women at the top who put the toddler to safety before she got dragged down the escalator’s mechanism. One of the women tried to help her by grabbing her hand but a few seconds later, the mum disappeared into view.

The firefighter’s retrieval took over four hours and they had to open the machine to recover the body of the mum. Sources said that the said escalator had just gone under maintenance and workers forgot to screw the access cover back into place.

A NSW mum took to Facebook her appeal to find the one who battered her son after his car bumped the attacker’s utility vehicle in a car park on Friday.

Kathy Chapman was enraged upon learning that her son, Jesse, 17 was brutalised by a still unknown attacker near the Anzac Memorial Walk around 11pm. In an interview with Sydney Morning Herald, Jesse said that he had just attended a church youth group gathering in Newcastle and was on his way home when he accidentally bumped his Hyundai into a white ute. He said that the attacker opened the door of his Hyundai and as he was about to say sorry, the man punched him.

“I remember during the attack trying to say sorry and I’ll pay for it, but he just wouldn’t listen,” he said. Jesse suffered two black eyes, bruising and swelling on his face and nose after getting knocked on the ground. He immediately reported the incident to the Newcastle police station after he left.

Ms Chapman said that the suspect’s name was said to be Matt. However, the certain Matt’s vehicle was not damaged. She said it was the one that damaged the bumper of her son’s car with its towbar. She took to Facebook to express her rage against the attacker and ask for help in finding him:

“Please share so we can find the bastard that did this!!!! If you seen it or know the guy that brags please contact us!!!!”


1. Mum imprisoned for admitting having sex with 12-year-old boy

Parenting News Stories | Stay At Home Mum

A Melbourne mum was locked up in jail for having sex with a 12-year-old boy.

The 40-year-old woman, who cannot be named, pleaded guilty to sexual abuse under the age of 16, for having sexual relationship with a boy who was her daughter’s friend.

The relationship began in 2011 when she began driving her daughter and the boy to school. She admitted to having sex with the boy once a week over a period of five months and did not use condoms, which led to her giving birth to a girl in May last year. A DNA test confirmed that the boy was the baby girl’s father.

The boy’s parents later found out about the baby and the relationship of their son and the woman, and reported it to the police. The woman was sentenced at the Victorian County Court to at least three years and six months to a maximum of six years in prison.
