jfkNEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Chaos continued Wednesday at John F. Kennedy International Airport, as thousands remained without their luggage days after snow closed the airport and a water pipe broke at one of the main terminals.

Some of it was covered with salt stains as if it had been left of the tarmac.

There was little security at the baggage claim area, where passengers from flights arriving Wednesday mixed with those who landed over the weekend in an attempt to find their suitcases.

Some likely weren’t sure if they took the right ones, and they were left in a state of utter frustration.  More

He said a bobcat scratched him on May 16, causing serious injuries after he entered the condo to conduct a fire safety inspection.

She said an employee from the building was supposed to accompany him inside.  More

Wise is arguing that animals such as elephants, which have complex cognitive and social abilities, should not be counted as “things” under the law, meaning they “lack the capacity for any kind of legal rights,” he said.  More
