    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on Sunday blamed high inflation on a “global phenomenon,” pushing back on the notion that Democrats’ spending bills are largely responsible for rising prices. On CBS’s “Face the Nation,” moderator Margaret Brennan asked Buttigieg about Republicans criticizing Democrats for passing last year a $1.9 trillion stimulus package, dubbed the American Rescue Plan, that preceded a rise in inflation that hit a roughly 40-year high.

  • Research recommends safer approach to removing casualties from car accidents

    A revised approach to how emergency services respond to motor vehicle collisions (MVCs) could help to save lives. In 2021 a total of 127,967 casualties and 1,560 deaths were caused by MVCs in England. Of these, more than 7,000 patients needed to be assisted to leave their vehicle. This often involves trained Fire and Rescue personnel using the "Jaws of Life" (a hydraulic apparatus) and other similar tools in order to free people. During this process, patients remain in their vehicle for an average of 30 minutes while slow, careful movements are used, in an attempt to avoid spinal injuries....

The three girls in the car had driven off Interstate-10 straight into the water after trying to follow the directions on their GPS at around 2.30am, according to WLOX. As they reached about 20ft from shore, their car began to sink. 'They...

    A large team of Moroccan workers was in the “final stages” of a precarious mission to rescue a 5-year-old boy named Rayan from a 105-foot deep well that he had been trapped in since Tuesday. Workers were bulldozing cautiously to avoid soil erosion, landslides and falling rocks as they tried to reach the boy. The teams could not descend directly into the well because it was too narrow, the report said. As the frantic rescue effort reached its fourth day, the North African nation was reportedly riveted to live coverage of the rescue effort in the rural village of Ighran,...

    Five months after the end of the US airlift stranded them in Afghanistan, some 156 dogs and 133 cats are finally on board an Il-76 chartered from a Russian transport company Aviacon Zitotrans, which departed Kabul on Sunday and is bound for Vancouver, Canada. “The plane is a total beast, an [Ilyushin] 76-TD, basically built for flying into Siberia in the middle of winter, so we do not expect winter weather to cause any delays or disruptions,” said Charlotte Maxwell-Jones of the Kabul Small Animal Rescue (KSAR), the charity organizing the airlift. The plane, tail number RA-76502, took off from...

    We all followed the events of the cave rescue. We think we know what happened. But we don’t. “The Rescue”, by directors Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin, has peered behind the heroic narrative that was cultivated at the time of the Chiang Rai Tham Luang cave rescue in July 2018. 13 young men – 12 teenagers and their 24 year old soccer coach – rode their bikes to the Tham Luang Caves in Chiang Rai, Northern Thailand, for a quick excursion following training of the Mu Pa (wild boars) team. It was Saturday, June 23, 2018. Following torrential monsoonal...

    Even in the best conditions, Benny Abruzzo admits that striding from one of the Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway towers onto the top of a tram car is a “gulp” step. But what if you have just climbed up that tower’s 80-foot ladder in slippery, frigid conditions in an effort to rescue 20 people who have been trapped in that car, dangling at an elevation of 8,750 feet, for hours. “That tower was covered in six inches of ice,” said Abruzzo, 63, owner of the tramway, the Sandia Peak Ski Area and Sandia Peak’s TEN 3 restaurant. “I had to break...

    BARSTOW, Wash – When game officials and state troopers did not respond, families in northeast Washington spent hours on Christmas Eve rescuing elk that had fallen through the ice into the Kettle River.

About 40 elk from the Selkirk herd made it across the river safely. But, 12 fell through thin ice and were struggling to get out. Stuart’s...
