40-year-old teacher marries 16-year-old student

A 40-year-old high school teacher and cross country coach has resigned and married a 16-year-old student.

Wuchae coached Hager at South Brunswick High School, where she was a star runner. He lives less than two miles from her home. Hager's parents said they did all they could to keep the couple apart after noticing a deeper-than-usual friendship between them.

The Hagers said they reluctantly signed a consent form allowing their daughter to marry her coach. "He had all the power in the world -- all he had to do was say, 'I can't do this,'" Betty Hager said. Schools Superintendent Katie McGee said she was shocked and disheartened. » Article here

Girl's feet cut off after ride malfunction at Six Flags

A girl's feet were cut off Thursday when a free-fall thrill ride malfunctioned at the Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom Amusement Park in Louisville, Kentucky, police said.

A cord wrapped around the 16-year-old's feet and severed them at her ankles while she was on the "Superman Tower of Power," a police dispatcher said. The girl was taken to a local hospital.
An unidentified witness said she saw a cable on the ride snap. "The people on the ride just came and hit the ground," she said. "When I got up there, the lady she was just sitting there, and she didn't have no legs. ... And she was just there, calm, probably in shock from everything."

The park remained open, but the ride in question was shut down and will remain so until the full investigation is complete, Goldberg said. During the ride, passengers are lifted to 177 feet, suspended momentarily and then dropped, according to the park's Web site. » Article here

17-year-old shoots carjacker who pulled gun on mother

A man with a gun was trying to force a woman out of her car at a fast-food drive-through when the woman's 17-year-old son wrestled the gun away from him and shot him.

Carl Chestnut, 44, of Kenner, is expected to survive wounds to his head and body, and will face armed robbery charges once he is released from the hospital. It would have been safer to hand over the keys and let the gunman drive off, Sheriff Harry Lee said Monday.

Fortunato said the 53-year-old woman was in line at an Arby's Roast Beef Restaurant about 1:30 a.m. Monday when Chestnut walked up and pointed a gun at her, demanding their money and the car.

When he leaned inside, aiming the gun with one hand and trying to yank her out with the other, the 17-year-old grabbed the gun, Fortunato said. He said it went off once as they strugged, but did not hit anyone. Once the youth got the gun, he shot Chestnut several times, Fortunato said. » Article here
