    Plumbers have found all kinds of things inside sewer pipes that shouldn’t be there, but what this man discovered is extremely disturbing.

    During a routine job at a Brooklyn home on January 10, the maintenance worker was attempting to unclog a pipe when he opened up one of the duct’s elbows. Inside, he found the remains of a human fetus.

    It isn’t clear how long the fetus had been there or if it had died beforehand, but police say it appeared to be around four months into development.

  • They Claimed Their Little Girl Went Missing But Police Found Her Hidden In Their Restaurant

    media.galaxant.com_000_491_244_340x252-1484343657

    79.3 percent of reported accounts of child abuse involve one or both of the child’s parents.

    A couple in Jackson, Ohio, recently contributed to this statistic. With two children and their own business to look after, their plate was certainly full. From the outside, the family seemed to be happy, but that facade crumbled once the couple’s five-year-old daughter was found dead.

    The parents of Ashley Zhao told police that she was missing earlier this month. According to them, when her mother went to check on her after a nap, she was nowhere to be found.

    A child advisory was issued for the area, as police suspected that the little girl had wandered out the back door of the couple’s restaurant.

    More than 70 police officers, the FBI, and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations were all looking for Ashley. The search finally ended when the girl’s dead body was discovered in the back of the restaurant.

    Both parents were arrested, and during questioning, police learned that on the night of the incident, the mother had struck her daughter several times in the head. Afterward, the girl was on the ground oozing a “green fluid” from her mouth, so her father decided to take her to the bathroom to clean her up.

    When he returned with Ashley, he placed her back on the restaurant floor and discovered that she was no longer breathing. After a failed CPR attempt, the couple chose to hide the body and report their daughter missing.

    They will appear before a judge in the coming days. They were charged with various counts of murder and assault and their bail is set at $5 million.

  • Traumatized Girl Live Streams Suicide After Being Sexually Abused By Family Member

    media.galaxant.com_000_491_184_340x252-1484323511

    Child abuse effects nearly 700,000 children under the age of 18 annually.

    Of these children, nearly four out of five are abused by at least one of their parents. Constant abuse and belittling can have negative impacts on a child’s self-esteem and personal life. Whether the abuse is physical, verbal, or simply emotional, the child if often left feeling as though they aren’t good enough and may never rise to meet life’s high expectations. Many take their own lives.

    In 2014, nearly 1,500 children in the U.S. either took their lives or were killed by their own abusers. While these tragic events might not have been national news 20 years ago, with the creation of social media and streaming services, every suicide attempt can quickly become a worldwide event.

    Twelve-year-old Katelyn Nicole Davis of Cedartown, Georgia, revealed a traumatic family secret to her friends and followers during a live stream on her social media accounts.

    The young girl broke down in tears as she shared with the world that her stepfather had emotionally, sexually, and verbally abused her since marrying her mother.

    During the live broadcast, she could be heard saying her final goodbyes as she is prepared to take her own life.

    Sadly, she hung herself from a tree in her backyard while her friends watched in horror from their mobile devices.

    Despite their best efforts to save Davis, emergency responders were unable to resuscitate the poor girl and she was pronounced dead on December 30.

    In the days leading up to her death, Davis kept an online journal in which she detailed many incidents involving her stepfather and his abusive tendencies. She also said that she’d begun self-harming.

    In prior broadcasts on Davis’ social media also revealed that she was having a hard time managing life while dealing her family troubles.

    As more and more people received word of her publicized suicide, Davis’ video spread across social media.

    Police were able to remove the stream from her own Facebook page, but as of now, they can do nothing to prevent the video from being shared across platforms online.

    Some fear that the spreading of such a tragic video could inspire others in similar living situations to attempt copycat suicides.

  • Dogs Are Suffering In This City, But People Are Stepping Up To Help

    media.galaxant.com_000_490_986_690x252-1484138668

    I absolutely hate being cold in the winter, and I’m sure our furry friends do, too.

    Even though dogs and cats have natural coats to keep them warm, if they’re outside when freezing temperatures hit, they’re at risk of frostbite or death. In Turkey, where street dogs are customary and incredibly common, volunteers are stepping up to help these beloved pups.

    Estimates reveal that there are around 150,000 stray dogs in Istanbul, Turkey. Unlike in America, Turkish people welcome the presence of free-roaming dogs in their cities.

  • Babysitter Burns Infant In Tub, But The Parents Are The Ones Facing Jail Time

    media.galaxant.com_000_490_913_340x252-1484070477

    On December 27, 2016, Patric Eddy and Candace Matthews’ 16-day-old baby, Mia’Kota, was severely burned while under the care of a 16-year-old cousin.

    Officials say the incident was an accident, as the teenager inadvertently turned off the cold water instead of the hot while trying to bathe the baby in a sink. She told Mia’Kota’s parents and assumed they would take her to get medical treatment immediately after they picked her up.

    However, the teen and her mother took the baby and called 911 when they found 25-year-old Eddy and 26-year-old Matthews passed out in their Ada, Oklahoma, home the next day.

    According to court documents, Matthews said “that she could not take the child to the hospital because she was high on meth,” even though the baby was suffering from first and second-degree burns.

    Mia’Kota is now recovering at a burn center in Arkansas, but she could have died if nobody came to check on her.

    Only a day after Victoria Martens turned 10 years old, she was raped and murdered while her own mother watched.

    While this is disturbing enough, her autopsy has revealed even more horrifying information. Not only did Victoria have alcohol in her system when she died, but she also tested positive for the human papilloma virus (HPV), confirming that she had been sexually abused before.

    Her mother, 35-year-old Michelle Martens, also admitted that she enjoyed watching her boyfriend, 32-year-old Fabian Gonzales, rape her little girl before he strangled her to death in August 2016.

    Little Victoria’s body was found dismembered in a bathtub in her mother’s Albuquerque, New Mexico, home. Detectives believe that Gonzales and his 32-year-old cousin, Jessica Kelley, murdered her.

    Martens told investigators that before Victoria’s death that she had looked for men online to rape her daughter.

    Martens, Gonzales, and Kelley are currently in jail while awaiting trial.

  • What’s Hidden Just Below The Ocean Surface In Cancun Is Hauntingly Beautiful

    media.galaxant.com_000_490_979_340x252-1484094092

    Growing up, I never considered myself much of an art fan, but that totally changed during my college years.

    You might say that my tastes developed much like a fine wine, because now, I take every opportunity I can to walk around museums and see various exhibits in all their beautiful glory.

    Most museums that people go to feature collections of artwork scattered across multiple rooms. If you’re lucky, you might find yourself in the presence of a work by da Vinci, Monet, or Warhol. Just about every museum has something that sets it apart from the rest, but the Museo Subacuático de Arte (MUSA) is unlike any I’ve ever seen before, and it’s taking art to new depths.

    In 2009, MUSA became the world’s first underwater museum.

    It can be found in the waters surrounding Cancun, Isla Mujeres, and Punta Nizuc, Mexico.

    With more than 500 permanentlife-sized sculptures, MUSA is considered to be one of the largest underwaterattractions in the world.

    The impressive museum is the brainchild of Jaime González Cano, the director of the National Marine Park; Roberto Díaz Abraham, the former president of the Cancun Nautical Association; and sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor.

    It was created with the intent of demonstrating how art and environmental science can interact with one another.

    Each one of MUSA’s sculptures is made of specialized materials that help promote active coral life.

    Many of the pieces depict everyday activities.

    While Taylor created most of the sculptures, there are also contributions by a variety of amazing artists such as Enrique Miralda, Karen Salinas, and Salvador Quiroz.

    The museum covers over 4,500 square feet of the ocean floor.

    Art lovers can visit MUSA by either scuba diving through it or taking a glass-bottom boat tour.

  • He Was Digging On A Farm When All Of A Sudden The Earth Gave Way

    media.galaxant.com_000_490_947_340x252-1484079955

    At one time or another, most of us have probably dug a hole in our yard.

    We might’ve just been playing around as kids, or perhaps we were burying a time capsule or a dearly departed furry fried. Usually, we only come across dirt when we’re digging, but when one 19th-century laborer was digging a trench on a local farm, he made a very interesting discovery.

    While the man was working away at his trench on a farm in Kent, England, his shovel was suddenly swallowed up by the ground.

    He told many people of his shovel’s bizarre fate, and eventually the tale made its way to local schoolmaster Jason Newlove.

    Newlove investigated the area and realized that the land below the farm was hollow. To look into the matter further, he tied a length of rope around his young son Joshua and lowered him down into the abyss through a hole.

    Upon his return to the surface, little Joshua told an elaborate story about a temple-like cavern that he saw. He mentioned that the entire thing was covered in seashells.

    Newlove knew that this underground grotto was something special, so he set out to make the site a tourist attraction. Soon, the Shell Grotto was born. The Grotto opened its doors to the public in 1838 and has been a popular destination ever since.

    The cavern is just 104 feet long, but it boasts over 4.6 million shells. They cover nearly 2,000 square feet of wall and ceiling space.

    Most of the shells are arranged in elaborate designs like the one below.

    In 2008, a restoration group called the Friends of the Shell Grotto was established to help preserve this incredible place for many years to come.

    To this day, no one knows who made the Shell Grotto or when exactly it was built.

    Some people believe that the Grotto was a temple, while others think it was a secret meeting place. It’s likely that the world will never know what it truly was.

  • Gravity-Defying Dog Jumps To Grab A Tree Branch, But Look What Else He Does!

    media.galaxant.com_000_490_958_340x252-1484083095

    If I know anything about dogs, it’s that they love to chase things.

    Playing fetch with my family Labrador was one of my favorite activities growing up in the middle of the woods. My pup, like many pups, would go after tennis balls, stuffed animals, and hilariously large sticks — but I’ve never seen a dog go after a branch that was still attached to a tree.

    One eager German shepherd did just that, proving that he’s a true master of the high jump. What a talented animal!

    If you think that sounds amazing, wait ’til you see what happened once he sunk his teeth into the biggest stick ever.
