The Girl Dragged Into Water By Sea Lion Now Has A Rare Infection

The little girl who was dragged into the water by a sea lion in British Columbia now has a hazardous infection. A terrifying video taken Saturday showed the girl being dragged into the water by her dress as onlookers screamed. The incident reportedly took place just after the sea lion had been fed breadcrumbs.

“There was somebody beside [the sea lions] that was trying to feed them,” the girl's father, Mr Lau, told CBC News. "My daughter went to the front to try to see the sea lions, to get a closer look." The girl was saved by the swift response of her grandfather, who immediately jumped into the water to drag her to safety. “If he had one- or two-second doubt about that, my girl could have been gone by then,” Lau said. “That reaction makes him a hero.”

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the Vancouver Aquarium has confirmed that the girl is being treated for "seal finger," a rare and hazardous infection caused by bacteria from a seal's mouth infecting a person's open cut. If untreated, the condition can cause massive swelling leading to the loss of fingers or limbs. "She's going to get the right treatment," Aquarium spokesperson Deana Lancaster told NBC News.

Aubameyang Seals German Cup Win For Dortmund

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's penalty won the German Cup for Borussia Dortmund as they beat Eintracht Frankfurt 2-1 and ended a run of three final defeats in a row.

Ousmane Dembele’s strike in the eight minute was cancelled out by Ante Rabic in the 29th-minute before Aubameyang then chipped his 40th goal of the season from the spot after Christian Pulisic was brought down.

Victory provided a positive finish to a difficult season for Dortmund, who finished third in the Bundesliga, and suffered trauma when their team bus was damaged by an explosion before a Champions League quarter-final match against Monaco on 11 April.

Burundi Forces Unwed Couples To Marry By Year-End


Unmarried couples have until the end of the year to legalise their relationships, the Burundi government revealed,  as part of an effort to reform morals in the country.

The order follows the launch of a campaign this month by President Pierre Nkurunziza “to moralise society” in the tiny nation which for two years has been in the grip of sometimes violent political upheaval.

Interior ministry spokesman Terence Ntahiraja stated that the country was facing a population explosion which he blamed on “illegal marriages”, polygamy, bigamy and “hundreds of schoolgirls getting pregnant”.

He said church and state-sanctioned weddings were the solution and were a patriotic duty.

Nkurunziza said Burundians should show their love for each other — and their country — by getting married.

The government has since been pressuring unwed couples across the country to tie the knot.

The governor of the southeastern province of Rutana has ordered that “persons living in common-law unions” should be put on a special list by 22 June, while the governor of the northwestern Bubanza province has demanded unspecified “sanctions” against aisle-dodgers.

Former Texas Nurse, Charged Again With Baby Murder

A former Texas nurse has been charged with the death of an 11-month-old baby, more than 30 years after she was jailed for killing a toddler.

Genene Jones, 66, is accused of injecting Joshua Sawyer with a toxic level of Dilantin in December 1981, the year before she killed Chelsea McClellan.

Jones, who is suspected of killing as many as 60 infants, was sentenced to 99 years for the little girl's death.

But a legal twist at the time Jones was jailed for Chelsea's murder meant she got a reduced sentence in return for good behaviour making her due to be released in March next year.

Jones, dubbed the "Angel of Death" in US media, had already been sentenced for injecting and nearly killing a second child, shortly after the initial conviction.

But the former nurse, who worked in San Antonio and neighbouring Kerr County during the late 1970s and early 1980s, is still "suspected in dozens of infant deaths", according to district attorney Nico LaHood.
