Luke Shambrook was spotted from a police helicopter before noon in the Fraser National Park in Victoria state 2 miles from his family’s campground where he disappeared from on Friday morning, Police Commander Rick Nugent said.

“We are told that Luke is well, that he is exhausted, he’s suffering hypothermia and he’s also dehydrated,” Nugent told reporters.

5 myths surrounding vaccines and the reality

Posted By Staff

Date: February 4th, 2015

vacWith dozens of measles cases popping up in the United States, Americans are buzzing about vaccines once more — and some old fearful myths are resurfacing.

These myths may be keeping parents from protecting their children from dangerous diseases, when there’s every reason to get them vaccinated.

Vaccines prevents six million deaths worldwide every year, CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta writes.

And there’s basically no reason not to get them. Only one in a million children has a serious adverse reaction.

Those are great odds. You’re 100 times more likely to get struck by lightning than have an allergic reaction to a vaccine, Gupta says. Taking aspirin, for example, is much more likely to cause brain bleeding.  More

Joan Rivers’ Daughter Files Lawsuit Against Clinic, Doctors – were busy taking cell phone pictures

joanNew York – Joan Rivers’ doctors were so busy taking cell phone pictures of their famous patient that they missed the moment her vital signs plummeted — and they ignored pleas from the anesthesiologist to halt the procedure, according to a multi-million dollar lawsuit filed Monday by the comic’s daughter.

For 17 minutes, while her blood pressure, pulse, heart rate and oxygen levels dropped — precipitously — the doctors in the room failed to cut into her trachea to restore the oxygen flow to her brain, court papers said.

Melissa Rivers, 47, filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit in Manhattan Supreme Court against the clinic and the two doctors and three anesthesiologists who treated her 81-year-old mother last August, charging that their negligence triggered a coma that ended in her mother’s death.  More
