300-pound man crushes woman at NY Mets baseball game
Ellen Massey always counted being struck by a baseball or a bat at Shea Stadium among the hazards of being a Mets fan, but she never thought a 300-pound man would come crashing down the stands -- and onto her.
That's what the Manhattan resident, 58, said happened on Monday, Opening Day at Shea. Shortly after the seventh-inning stretch, she said, a man dressed in a green Army-type jacket tumbled from higher seats and onto her back, knocking the wind out of her and, ultimately, causing serious injury.
"I only know he came flying," Massey, 58, said Wednesday from her bed in Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx. "I was literally not able to breathe for about half-a-minute or so. The first thing I was aware of was not being able to breathe, and then when I was able to breathe I was aware of the pain in my lower back."
"I have to say that in going to a baseball park, the only fear that has ever entered my mind is that I'd get hit by a hard ball," she said. I didn't expect a 300-pound human missile to hit me in the back. That doesn't come up on my list of fears." Full article here.

High school police officer pays student $50 to get naked
A police officer assigned to a high school asked a 16-year-old student last month to take off her clothes while he photographed her in his office and even paid her $50, according to an arrest affidavit.
The affidavit said that Helms took several dozen photos of the girl in his office March 6 but that she was clothed. The next day, the student returned, and Helms asked again if he could photograph her, according to the affidavit.
This time, according to court documents, Helms put a chair in front of his office door and asked the girl to remove her shirt, bra and pants. He then photographed her topless and gave her $50 "to induce her to stay a little longer," the affidavit states.
George Wesley Helms, 35, was fired from the Hutto Police Department last month after police were tipped off that he had taken inappropriate photos of the girl, Hutto police said. After a monthlong investigation, police arrested Helms on Tuesday and charged him with sexual performance of a child, a second-degree felony that carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
