The boys’ basketball team at St Charles East High School, based in St Charles, Illinois, secured a win over St Charles North on January 12, thanks to an unbelievable buzzer-beating, three-pointer from student Justin Hardy. With barely any time remaining, Hardy stole the ball from St Charles North before taking a three-point shot which turned out to be the game-winner for his team, prompting scenes of delirium as fellow students invaded the court. Footage of the shot, shared by reporter Jake Bartelson shows the ecstatic crowd celebrating Hardy’s nothing-but-net finish. Another clip from the game, tweeted by @jhendriksen, shows the miracle throw from a different angle. The initial clip from Bartelson had over 20,000 views at the time of writing. While the impressive nature of the win is in little doubt, it actually marks the third year in a row St Charles East has handed out a last-second defeat to their St Charles North rivals.

U.S. woman found with eye worm previously known only in cattle

26-year-old woman from Oregon becomes first human to have her eye infected with 14 of these tiny worms previously only seen in cattle.

An Oregon woman has become the first person worldwide known to have had an eye infestation by a tiny worm species previously seen only in cattle that is spread by flies that feed on eyeball lubrication, U.S. government researchers said on Monday.

U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention scientists said 14 translucent parasitic worms of the species Thelazia gulosa, all less than half an inch (1.27 cm) long, were extracted from the 26-year-old woman’s eye over a 20-day period before her symptoms dissipated.

This species of Thelazia worm was previously seen in cattle throughout the northern United States and southern Canada, the researchers reported in a study published in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. They said the study indicates that North Americans may be more vulnerable than previously understood to such infections.

If the worms remain in a person’s eye for a prolonged time, they can cause corneal scarring and even blindness, according to the researchers.

“Cases of eye worm parasitic infections are rare in the USA, and this case turned out to be a species of the Thelazia that had never been reported in humans,” said study lead author Richard Bradbury, who works with the CDC’s Division of Parasitic Diseases and Malaria.

Bradbury said previously it was thought there were only two different species of these eye worms that infected humans worldwide, and that Thelazia gulosa is now the third.

The researchers said the woman noticed a small, translucent worm in her left eye after experiencing irritation. Her frequent outdoor pastimes during the summer months exposed her to the infection, they added.

She was from the city of Gold Beach, located on Oregon’s coast along the Pacific Ocean about 40 miles (65 km) north of the California border.

Previous cases of such eye worm infections have been reported worldwide, predominantly in Europe and Asia and in rural communities with close proximity to animals and with poor living standards, the researchers said.

Eye worms are found in a variety of animals including dogs, cats and certain wild carnivores.
