Rachel Youngs told WDAF reporters that she at the Target store on Shawnee Mission Parkway getting groceries on the morning of Friday, Nov. 2, when the disturbing incident allegedly took place.
Youngs said an unknown woman with a dog approached her in the baby section. The woman seemed friendly at first, Youngs recounted, and told her she thought her 9-week-old baby was adorable.
“I made a comment on how cute her dog was, and she went around to the front of my cart and made a comment about how cute my baby is,” Youngs said. “She made a comment saying, 'Yeah, I'll trade you my dog for your baby,' and I thought she was just joking,” Youngs said.
The Verruckt slide at Schlitterbahn Water Park in Kansas City commenced on Tuesday, Oct. 30, the Wyandotte Daily reported, following the slide's closure in Aug. 2016 in the aftermath of the tragic accident.
Caleb Schwab was killed while going down the slide when he struck a metal rod that held a safety net in place.
Officials at the West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) have released security camera footage of the Oct. 28 break-in.
The footage shows an unidentified man wearing a hoodie approach the ambulance to investigate. The thief leaves, but comes back moments later and breaks a side window in the ambulance. He then leans inside and steals a number of items.
Authorities are appealing to the public for help identifying the thief.
"It really does make you question the morals of some people," said Nathan Hudson, the WMAS Emergency Services Operations Delivery Director, in a statement.
He called the theft "despicable" and said it affected the ability of the ambulance crew to respond to an emergency and thus put citizens at risk.
“I cannot begin to understand why someone would do this to an emergency blue lighted vehicle which has the sole responsibility of helping people," Hudson said. "This despicable crime has meant an ambulance is off the road and unable to respond to 999 calls whilst it’s being repaired; money which would’ve been better spent elsewhere in the service to help respond to patients."
Ambulance crewmembers had a number of items stolen, including an iPhone. Paramedics were treating a patient in the vicinity while the thief committed the crime. They returned to the vehicle to find the driver's window had been smashed and their personal belongings stolen.
"Can you identify this individual who broke into an ambulance & stole personal belongings while the crew were treating a patient in a nearby property?" reads an appeal to public tweeted by @OFFICIALWMAS, the official Twitter account of the West Midlands Ambulance Service.

Sergeants Christopher Russo and Kirby Tonkin responded to numerous calls that a kangaroo was in the water in the Mornington Peninsula area, south of Melbourne, on Oct. 27, according to Belinda Batty of the Rosebud Police.
"The kangaroo had made it back to the beach upon their arrival and had been covered in a blanket by a member of the public," Batty said.
But as the officers were monitoring the animal, "it decided to turn around and hop back into the surf."
"It began to swim but got into difficulty in the swell and breaking waves," she said, adding that the kangaroo went under water several times and began to drown.
The officers dragged the unconscious animal out of the water and performed CPR in an effort to resuscitate the animal.
The kangaroo is now recovering after the dramatic rescue.
Sgt Tonkin said it was a "good feeling", according to the Herald Sun, adding "every life is worth saving and we just did what we could."
The kangaroo was wrapped in blankets and taken to Rosebud Police Station, where it was assessed by a local Wildlife Centre.
"We will let him recover at his own pace but he has a paddock full of grass and lots of water to drink and he seems very happy with that," said Michelle Thomas, director of the local Animalia Wildlife Shelter, according to the Herald Sun.
Local resident Mia Grant saw the kangaroo bounce across the road towards the beach. "I saw him swimming and started filming but he suddenly got caught in the backwash of the waves so we got him out and waited for police," she said, according to the report.
For some reason the animal became frightened and bolted back into the sea.
"He had less than a minute… he went under and as he came up you could see foam coming out of his nose. He was drowning," Sgt Russo said.
"I grabbed his tail and Kirby cradled his head and dragged him onto the beach and cleared his lungs to get the water out of him. Then we just started to push on his chest and he started breathing again and I could feel a heartbeat."
Grant was full of praise for what the officers did. "You see a lot of bad things and to see someone so instantaneously race in after an animal gives you faith in humanity," she said.
Officers took the marsupial to the local police station.
"The roo is currently being cared for but is said to be in good spirits and lucky to be alive given the amount of salt water he inhaled," Batty said.
This footage was shared by Guardia Civil, who said they located a car submerged in 10 feet (3 meters) of water around 820 feet (250 meters) from the shore.
The final death toll from the floods reached 13 on Oct. 17, following the discovery of the body of a nine-year-old boy. The car he had been traveling in with his mother and sister was swept away by the flood, according to The Local.
Officials said that about 174,207 pounds of chicken wrap products that contain vegetables that may be contaminated with Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes are subject to the recall, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
Consumers are urged to check if they have any of the recalled products and get rid of them.
“FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase,” officials stated in a release.
USDA officials have classified the recall as Class 1, meaning the health risk is high.
SK Food Group, located in both Groveport, OH and Reno, NV, is the supplier of the recalled product. The recalled items were shipped directly to consumers through catalog sales in California, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Texas.
The frozen, fully cooked chicken wrap items under recall were produced on various dates from Oct. 15, 2017, through Oct. 15, 2018, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The recalled products bear establishment number “EST. 45367” or “EST. 20552” stamped on the product centerfold.
Officials said there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions because of people eating the recalled Jenny Craig products. They advised anyone experiencing symptoms of illness or injury to consult a doctor.
USDA sources said the problem was discovered Oct. 14, 2018, when SK Food Group was notified that the vegetables used to make their chicken wrap products were being recalled by their vegetable supplier following concerns about listeria and salmonella.
Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Pregnant women with the infection can suffer miscarriages and stillbirths.
In healthy people, listeria may cause short-term symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, high fever, nausea, severe headache and stiffness. Food contaminated with salmonella can cause salmonellosis, a common bacterial food-borne illnesses.
The most common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product. The illness usually lasts four to seven days.
Most people recover from salmonellosis without treatment.
Older adults, infants and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness.
Officials urge anyone concerned that they may be suffering from salmonella or listeria related symptoms to contact a healthcare provider.
Puyuma Express 6432 went off the rails in Taiwan's north-eastern county of Yilan, near Taipei, at about 5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 21, according to the Straits Times, citing the semi-official Central News Agency.
The train is believed to have come off the tracks close to Xinma station, close to the town of Su'ao about 70km (43 miles) from the Taiwanese capital Taipei, the BBC reported.
At the time of reporting, an estimated 30 to 40 passengers remained trapped inside the overturned train carriages.
Footage captured at the site of the accident showed derailed train carriages laying on their side or heaped on top of one another. People can be seen standing nearby, looking on in shock.
"I was shocked, and I was terrified, and felt so unsafe," dog owner Amy Goggins told Fox5 reporters, adding that the incident happened around 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 14, in front of the Fox Theatre on Peachtree Street in midtown Atlanta.
Goggins said that as she and her pet were walking down the sidewalk, out of nowhere a stranger kicked her dog in the head.
"My reaction was to start screaming and crying and he started threatening us. He said he would hurt me, and next time he saw me, he would rip the dog's head off," the woman said.
Goggins insisted the attack was completely unprovoked.
"My dog and I were just walking and minding our own business and the dog was right in front of me. He wasn't in this man's path, or he wasn't barking at him or anything," she said.
The Atlanta woman called the police immediately after the alleged attack.
She said her six-year-old Pomeranian mix suffered minor bruises and will be fine.
Goggins added the encounter has left her more anxious.
"It has caused me to be more vigilant of where I walk and who I pass," Goggins said.
The incident has put other area dog walkers on alert.
"Getting hit or beat or taken advantage of by some random person is very concerning," Jenae Register told Fox5 reporters.
Goggins has posted on social media about the frightening encounter and hopes raising awareness will help keep people safer.
"Being more aware, having a better sense of awareness-- just making sure you look around," advised Register.
Goggins worries the man who allegedly kicked her dog may be suffering from mental health issuses.
"I feel sorry for him to know what kind of state he might be in to do this kind of thing, and I do hope that we can find help for him."
Officials fear the toll could soar, as most of the confirmed dead had come from Palu, a small city 1,500 km (930 miles) northeast of Jakarta, while some remote areas have been cut off since Friday's 7.5 magnitude quake triggered tsunami waves.

A video released by the country's defense ministry on Sept. 26 showed multiple launches of supersonic P-800 Onyx missiles, which are part of Russia’s Bastion coastal defense complex.
The ministry said the launches were a part of tactical drills by the North Navy Fleet.
A North Navy Fleet spokesperson told Interfax the missiles system had been delivered to a base on Kotelny Island, in eastern Siberia, to take part in the drills.
“Rocket fire will be launched at a remote target simulating a group of enemy surface ships,” the spokesman was quoted as saying, according to Interfax.
Moscow’s interest in the Arctic stems from the discovery of immense untapped oil and natural gas reserves in the region, as well as from the desire to secure access to the Northern Sea Route (NSR).
“Russia’s future lies in the Arctic,” says Malte Humpert, a senior fellow at the Arctic Institute, The Economist reported. “It will become an essential corridor to extract and transport resources to Asia and Europe.”
The missile deployment comes just days ahead of the expected arrival in the port city of St. Petersburg of the Venta Maersk, a specially strengthened vessel that is the world’s first container ship to venture into the Russian Arctic. The maiden voyage of the Russian ship is reported to be a test run to determine the feasibility of NSR as a shipping route—and a sign of increased interest in the Arctic.
Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a military doctrine into effect in 2014, entrusting Russia’s armed forces with maintaining the country’s strategic interests in the Arctic, according to the Moscow Times.
Christie’s International Jewellery Director David Warren told Reuters in London on Sept. 25 that the sale of this 18.96 carat diamond is an extraordinary event for the auction house.
"In 40 years of working at Christie's I've never seen anything like this in my life,” Warren said. “It was a huge surprise when there it was, we saw it and couldn't quite believe that such a stone existed. It has wonderful purity and incredible brightness. It is beautifully cut, but it is the size and the colour that just take your breath away.”
Dubbed “The Pink Legacy,” the unique rectangular-cut gem will go under the hammer on Nov. 13 in Geneva, Switzerland, Christies said in a news release.
"The estimate is $30-50 million dollars which is the highest estimate we have placed on any piece of jewellery at any time," Warren added.
Rahul Kadakia, International Head of Jewellery at Christie’s, heaped praise on the exceptional jewel.
“The saturation, the intensity of this stone is as good as it gets in a coloured diamond,” he said, according to the release.
“To find a diamond of this size with this colour is pretty much unreal. You may see this colour in a pink diamond of less than one carat. But this is almost 19 carats and it’s as pink as can be. It’s unbelievable.”
Scientists classify diamonds into two main categories—Type I and Type II, with the latter type having a rare, almost homogenous color.
“Pink diamonds fall under the rare Type IIa category of diamonds,” said Kadakia. “These are stones that have little if any trace of nitrogen, and make up less than two per cent of all gem diamonds. Type IIa stones are some of the most chemically pure diamonds often with exceptional transparency and brilliance.”
Christie’s posted an alluring video featuring exquisite close-ups of the gem.
“We are honoured to be offering for sale The Pink Legacy, a Magnificent Vivid Pink diamond, that once formed part of The Oppenheimer Collection,” the post is captioned.
The Pink Legacy has been awarded the highest diamond colour grading—‘Fancy Vivid—by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), the release notes, an honor conferred on but one out of 100,000 diamonds.
“Pink diamonds of any size and depth of colour have always had a special allure. This 18.96 carat emerald cut pink diamond is amongst the rarest of all gemstones,” said Tom Moses, Executive Vice President of GIA.
Fancy Vivid Pink is an even rare category, as diamonds of this particular hue are seldom encountered. In Christie’s 250-year history, only four Fancy Vivid Pink stones over 10 carats have ever come up for auction.
The Pink Legacy, reportedly with no trace of a secondary color and with a balanced saturation, tone and straight pink hue, make this nearly 19-carat behemoth a highly coveted one-of-a-kind.
Christie’s expects it will fetch between $30 and $50 million.
The world auction price per carat for any pink diamond was achieved at a Christie’s auction in Hong Kong in November 2017, when “The Pink Promise,” an oval-shaped Fancy Vivid Pink diamond of just under 15 carats, was sold for $32,480,500 — an impressive $2,175,519 per carat.
The as-yet undetermined species of whale is estimated to be around 20 meters (66 feet) long and weigh about 40 tons, according to the Nine News report, and has attracted visitors since it became lodged on rocks near Wattamolla Beach on Sept. 17.
Whale welfare group ORRCA confirmed the whale was male but has not yet confirmed the species, according to the report.
The carcass washed up onto the beach on Sept. 24.
Sharks have been feeding off the dead whale for some time, as video taken on Sept. 20 by Benjamin Reid shows.
In the footage, great white sharks can be seen violently splashing near the carcass as they feed.
Shaun Elwood of the National Parks and Wildlife Service speculated on the whale’s cause of death.
“It could be sick, it could not have been in well health, it could have been an old whale, or it could have been hit by a boat. It’s really an unknown,” said Elwood, in the Nine News report.
Two local brothers Jai and Kurt Kiggins also captured video as Jai swam in shark-infested waters.
“Probably one of the craziest things I’ve ever seen. The great white came straight up, like face to face, and then turned and kicked away,” said Kiggins.
“Look, it’s stupid,” said Elwood. “New South Wales Police, New South Wales Maritime, and National Parks and Wildlife Service, we really discourage the public from doing anything like that.”
Jai Kiggins dismissed suggestions his actions were foolhardy.
“I’ve you got the [expletive] to do it,” Kiggins said, “I don’t see why not.”
Kurt Kiggins, the one filming the incident, said that when their mother learned of their intentions, she expressed opposition.
“My mom wasn’t very happy about it, because when I left I told her I was going to do it, so she was stressing out all day,” said Kurt Kiggins.
Officials from the NSW Environment Office were considering whether to tow the whale back out to sea, Nine News reported.
A spokesperson said the whale’s size, as well as the beach’s location, meant disposal options were limited.
First responders on Saturday, Sept. 22, came across a mass of fish carcasses strewn across a portion of the Interstate 40 near Wallace, North Carolina, exposed by falling water levels a week after the hurricane-turned-storm made landfall and sparked massive flooding.

Staffers at MAGMA Indonesia (Multiplatform Application for Geohazard Mitigation and Assessment in Indonesia) noted in a statement that Mount Anak Krakatau—or “Child of Krakatoa”—erupted 56 times between Sept. 21-22, spewing lava and ejecting dark smoke.
“Crater smoke is thin white to gray, with a thin to thick intensity, reaching a height of 1000 meters (3280 ft). A total of 56 eruptions with a height of 200-300 m (656-985 ft) have been observed, along with black smoke. Night-time footage from CCTV recorded firelights and incandescent flow.”
Thunder sounds and weak tremors accompanied the eruption, MAGMA Indonesia stated, adding that “people / tourists are not allowed to approach the crater within a 2 km (1.2 mile) radius of the crater.”
Reuters aboard the Japanese helicopter carrier JS Kaga encountered the volcano, known for its deadly 1883 eruption, after the ship's departure from Indonesia’s capital Jakarta.
They captured one of Anak Krakatau’s eruptions on camera on Saturday, Sept. 22, as it catapulted into the air blobs of molten lava.
Observers at the Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (CVGHM) said in a Volcano Observatory Notice for Aviation (VONA) that the volcano posed a level II (CAUTION) threat.
“Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE, Eruption with ash clouds at 22:48 UTC (05:48 local time). The eruption lasted for 115 seconds. Eruption and ash emission is continuing. Ash-cloud moving to south. Best estimate of ash-cloud top is around 1722 FT (538 M) above sea level, may be higher than what can be observed clearly. Source of height data: ground observer.”
The eruption has not caused any disruptions to flights.
Indonesia’s National Agency for Disaster Countermeasure (BNPB) said in context of a previous Krakatau eruption that “this is an opportunity for volcano tourism and education, not all countries have volcanoes, Indonesia has 127 active volcanoes or 13% of active volcanoes in the world are in Indonesia.”
MAGMA Indonesia said that Anak Krakatau has experienced an increase in volcanic activity since June 18, 2018.
Deputies said they responded to a call that a man had stolen alcohol from a Piggly Wiggly store in the town Campbellsport, Fond du Lac county.
Store manager Kevin Harvey told WDJT-CBS reporters that he recognized a man placing bottles of booze into a cart at the Piggly Wiggly as the same individual that had previously stolen alcohol there on four occasions.
Surveillance video reportedly captured the suspect on Tuesday, Sept. 18, as he swiped three bottles of Jagermeister.
Harvey chased the man out of the store, it was reported, but the suspect leapt into a getaway car driven by John Wilson, and fled.
Police chased the getaway vehicle, and the suspect rolled out at some point during the pursuit.
Wilson stopped the car after evading the police for about three miles, ran into a cornfield and hid.
Deputies established a perimeter.
Campbellsport Police Department Chief Thomas Dronbrook said the mosquitoes were out in full force.
"As soon as the sheriff's department arrived that's the first thing I asked for, if he could give me some spray because it was crazy," Dornbrook said.
Within an hour, Wilson emerged from hiding with his hands up.
"When we handcuffed him he asked us to wipe his forehead because he had 15-20 mosquitoes on his forehead at that time," the chief said.
While normally frustrating, itchy, any annoying painful; these mosquitoes ended up being a great crime solving sidekick.
“I tease Sergeant Zitlow, he along with a million mosquitoes helped capture the guy," said Dornbrook, according to CBS.
Wilson faces charges that include evading the police, and obstructing an officer of the law.
Fans captured footage of the air ambulance as it came in for a landing on the field on Sept. 22 at the Oakwell stadium in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England.
The game between Barnsley and Burton Albion, two British football teams, had been due to kick off at 3 p.m., but was cancelled.
Nigel Clough, manager for Burton Albion, said "when it was announced the game was called off all the crowd were applauding respectfully as they realize it's the right decision.”
Stephen Croft suffered a heart attack prior to kick-off and emergency medical services were called in. Air ambulance crewmembers loaded Croft onto a stretcher and transported him to Sheffield Norther General Hospital.

On Sunday, September 9, Brisbane man Hoani Hearne was the first unlucky consumer to report a sabotaged berry. He accidentally swallowed a fragment of needle after eating a strawberry and was forced to visit the emergency room experiencing severe abdominal pain.
On Tuesday, September 11, a woman in Gladstone contacted police after her 9-year-old son bit into a needle embedded in a strawberry.
Police addressed media on Wednesday, September 12, saying they believed the berries originated from one grower in southeast Queensland, affecting only two brands. There were suspicions the needles had been planted by a disgruntled ex-employee.
After a growing number of cases were reported across New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland, police said they believed copycat crimes were taking place, causing six brands to be affected. Farmers were reportedly devastated to take such a huge hit to sales at an already difficult time of year.
In these videos and images, Chantal Faugeras crushes ‘Delightful’ brand strawberries purchased from a Coles in Wingham, New South Wales, finding needles within.

The Boeing 737 aircraft, which was carrying 166 passengers, landed safely. At least 30 passengers suffered ear and nose bleeds, NDTV reported.
Passengers on board Jet Airways flight 9W 697 from Mumbai to Jaipur captured video of the incident, showing frantic passengers and oxygen masks dangling from the ceiling.
An official with the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) told CNN affiliate CNN News 18 that the crew allegedly forgot to press a button to pressurize the cabin. "During the climb, the crew forgot to select the bleed switch due to which cabin pressurization could not be maintained, and oxygen masks got deployed," the official said.
Jet Airways said in a statement that Thursday morning's flight had turned back "due to loss in cabin pressure" and "regretted" the inconvenience caused to its passengers.
"The B737 aircraft, with 166 guests and 5 crew landed normally in Mumbai. All guests were deplaned safely and taken to the terminal. First aid was administered to few guests who complained of ear pain, bleeding nose etc," the statement said. Jet Airways also said the cockpit crew has been taken off duty and that an investigation had been launched into the incident.
Passenger Darshak Hathi tweeted a video of the interior of the cabin as air pressure dropped and oxygen masks came down.
