American Airlines employee accused of hitting woman with stroller

A dispute between passengers and a flight attendant is bringing another black eye to the airline industry, just weeks after a violent incident went viral.
The latest incident occurred Friday on a flight that was getting ready to take off from San Francisco to Dallas.

A video posted to Facebook captured the moments after an employee allegedly took a stroller from a woman and hit her with it, narrowly missing the baby in her arms. The video shows the distraught woman holding her baby and crying, asking flight attendants to give her the stroller back.



A fellow passenger gets up and confronts the flight attendant.

“What’s the guy’s name who did that with the stroller?” the man says. “Is he an American Airlines employee?

 I want to know his name personally. That’s ridiculous.”

Another passenger can be heard saying “he smacked her in the face with the stroller.”

About a minute later, the employee who apparently wrested the stroller from the woman returns to the cabin, at which point the …

Chelsea beat Spurs in thriller to reach FA Cup final

Late goals from Eden Hazard and Nemanja Matric sealed a 4-2 victory for Chelsea over London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in a rip-roaring FA Cup semifinal at Wembley on Saturday.

It was only the fourth time in the competition that a semifinal had featured the current top two in the top flight and it did not disappoint as the title rivals produced a sizzling contest.

Brazilian Willian, surprisingly selected ahead of Hazard in the starting line-up, twice put Chelsea ahead, first after four minutes with a free kick and then close to halftime from the penalty spot.

Twice Tottenham roared back with Harry Kane heading them level after 18 minutes and Dele Alli making it 2-2 with a superb finish seven minutes after the break.

Tottenham, who are four points behind Chelsea in the league after a brilliant run of form, dominated at times but their hopes of a first FA Cup final since 1991 were sunk late on.

First Hazard, who replaced Willian with half an hour remaining, buried a low shot past Hu…

Mel B's former nanny suing for defamation

Mel B's former nanny is reportedly suing the star for defamation.

Lorraine Gilles has filed a lawsuit against the former Spice Girls singer after she was involved in declarations made by the star surrounding her divorce from estranged husband Stephen Belafonte.

Mel claimed that Stephen had been having an affair with Lorraine, whom the 41-year-old singer claims was pregnant with Stephen's baby prior to having an abortion.

The 'Wannabe' hitmaker also goes on to accuse Lorraine and Stephen of "pilfering money" from her, and in another declaration claimed that the nanny had control over the star's personal sex tapes which she feared Lorraine could spread.

Lorraine has now reportedly branded these statements as false, and is suing the brunette beauty for defamation, according to TMZ.com.

US to honour 'dumb' Australia migrant deal

The United States has confirmed it will be going through with a migrant resettlement plan made with Australia.
US President Donald Trump once called the deal, which was agreed under his predecessor, "dumb".
The agreement allows for up to 1,250 asylum seekers to Australia to resettle in the US.
The agreement would be honoured, but not necessarily admired, visiting Vice-President Mike Pence said after talks with Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull. 
Mr Pence was speaking at a joint press conference with Mr Turnbull. 
Australia has controversially refused to accept the refugees, most of whom are men from Iran, Afghanistan and Iraq, and instead holds them in offshore detention centres on the Pacific nations of Nauru and Papua New Guinea.
In the first two weeks of his presidency, Mr Trump said he had a bad phone call with Mr Turnbull, when the Australian filled him in on the deal. 
Mr Turnbull later said he was disappointed that details of the call had been made public.

A woman's selfie has gone viral for a rather unfortunate detail in the background.

A US woman is being trolled on Twitter over what might just be the impressive floordrobe we’ve ever seen.
Identifying herself only as ‘Shelbs’, the woman posted a #mirrorselfie to her social media account celebrating “sundress season”.
Heard it was sundress season pic.twitter.com/TXbXrtLFKe — Shelbs (@_shelbizzle) April 18, 2017Yes, sure, lovely outfit. But… Would you take a look at that mess!
We’ve all left clothes lumped on the floor at one point in our lives (okay Mum, several), but good old Shelbs has taken it to another level.
Literally. She has somehow managed to defy physics and store clothes on top of her window.
Is… is she trying to fashion some kind of hipster curtain?
The mystery woman has since been inundated with comments and re-Tweets from people either horrified or suitably impressed by her unique clothing storage system.
You clearly went through other seasons before coming to that conclusion https://t.co/bD6J60pZzw — #ClaudeKnows (@ClaudeKnows) April 20, 2017
