Summer RANT (Random Advice, News & Tips)August 22nd, 2012 | by admin admin | in | 0
To celebrate the last lazy days of summer, we’ve put together our first-ever RANT blog for you. Random Advice, News & Tips for August. A roundup of tidbits that won’t tax your brain, but may save your life. Or just bring a smile.
1. Five-year-old Rebecca called 9-1-1 to rescue her unconscious mom, while watching her one- and three-year-old brothers. #lovekindyemt
2. Four drunk boaters threatened another boater on the dock at Deep Cove. Their boat then collided with two other boats as they tried to leave. The 34-year-old operator was later arrested in Port Moody as he was trying to back his truck onto the launch to load up his boat. #darwincandidates
3. A 63-year-old cyclist fell and hit his head while riding with his two children in Richmond. An off-duty nurse stopped to help, but the cyclist died from his injuries. He was not wearing a helmet. #bringbrainbucket
4. “Summer sun creates extra glare & potential blind spots - use your visor & sunglasses & be extra cautious at intersections.” #gottawearshades Re-tweet @VancouverPD
5. Between 6 and 8 p.m. on August 14, three cyclists and one pedestrian were injured in motor vehicle accidents in North Vancouver. Two drivers failed to yield. One was blinded by the sun. One cyclist hit a car turning onto the road in front of him. #sharetheroad
6. Seen on La Rambla, Barcelona: A fellow crowds against a Canadian tourist and tugs at his pant cuffs. Meanwhile, the thief’s partner dips into the tourist’s pockets. Tourist yells and grabs for his wallet. In the melée, no one notices the wallet on the ground—except the tourist’s daughter. Tip: Keep your wallet in a secure inside pocket and don’t rely on rookie pickpockets. #closecall
