'Dead' Truck Driver Turns Up Alive 30 Hours Later
Police remain baffled how a truck driver they thought had been killed in a fiery crash showed up alive more than 30 hours later, 16 kilometres away from the scene of the accident.
Investigators presumed the 51-year-old man had been killed when his truck collided with a four-wheel drive on the Glenelg Highway near Tarrington, in Victoria's west, about 6am Tuesday.
The 26-year-old South Australian man driving the 4WD died at the scene, east of Hamilton, and his 17-year-old male passenger was flown to The Royal Melbourne Hospital, where he is fighting for his life.
The prime mover burst into flames and police believed the driver's body was trapped inside its charred wreckage.
But a farmer found him on his property in Penshurst, 16 kilometres southeast of the crash site, just before 4pm on Wednesday.
He was taken to the Hamilton Hospital with injuries, including burns to his body.
Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Mark Amos, from the major collision investigation unit, said the man, from Glen Waverley, was in a stable condition but had not recovered enough to be interviewed.
"We're trying to piece together his movement from the time of the crash to the time when he was located by the farmer," Senior Sergeant Amos said.
"There's some 30-odd hours when we don't know where he's been.... [and] it's a significant distance to walk, particularly after being involved in such a big crash."
Senior Sergeant Amos said evidence at the crash site suggested the Melbourne-bound four-wheel drive, which was towing a trailer, had crossed onto the wrong side of the road and collided into the front of the truck.
He said it appeared the truck driver, who was driving towards Hamilton, was trying to avoid the four-wheel drive when it left the road.
"For reasons unknown to us, he's left the scene and that's where our investigation is primarily sitting at, at the moment," he said.
Graeme Presser, the farmer who found the man, said he was looking for parts in a shed when the truck driver approached him.
"I didn't see him, I must have woken him up," Mr Presser told Channel 10 News.
"It's just an amazing story. I was a truckie years ago, and I saw this sort of thing years ago and that's why I'm doing this (farming)". - Police baffled by truck driver who vanished for 34 hours after fatal crash
Sigh...Another Thermal Bigfoot
GALLUP, N.M. —There have been sightings of him all over the world, and now researchers said they have spotted Bigfoot in the San Juan River.
Just a few years ago, researchers shot infrared video of a creature in the Jemez. But they aren’t the only ones who think Bigfoot is in New Mexico.
Leading expert Dr. Jeff Meldrum will be in Gallup Thursday talking about his findings. He will show video of what he says is Bigfoot on the San Juan River.
Meldrum will be joined by New Mexico naturalist Rob Kryder, who believed Sasquatch was in the Sandias in the 1990s.
The two will have lectures about Bigfoot as well as audio recordings and more. It will be at University of New Mexico’s Gallup campus in room 220. It starts at 4 p.m. and is free of charge. Video can be found at Is Bigfoot hiding in northwest New Mexico?
Rabid Bats Killing Children in Peruvian Amazon
Health authorities have sent emergency vaccination teams to the remote Indigenous communities in the Amazon to control the rabies outbreak.
At least 12 Indigenous children in communities in Peru’s Amazon have died after being bitten by rabid vampire bats, the Peruvian Ministry of Health announced Wednesday.
“The victims were bitten by vampire bats, animals that feed on blood, in the communities of Yankuntich and Uncun in the jungle in the Loreto region, 1,100 km north of Lima,” Peruvian Ministry of Health official Hermann Silva told AFP.
The deceased contracted rabies and died after being bitten by bats over the course of five months between September 2015 and February 2016. All of the victims were between eight and 15-years-old. The most recent case of death by rabid bat was reported on Wednesday.
Health authorities were not immediately informed of the threat of rabies in the Amazonian communities due to local beliefs about such sudden deaths.
“We have spoken with the (Indigenous authorities) and they reported that the community believed that the death of these children was due to witchcraft, which is why they did not inform us of the rabies outbreak in time,” Silva added.
Health authorities have dispatched emergency health teams to vaccinate the affected communities and control the rabies situation. The communities are very remote jungle villages that can only be reached by river or helicopter and lack prompt access to health service.
The Ministry of Health has advised the communities to avoid going into caves where bats are likely to take refuge. - 12 Children Killed by Rabid Vampire Bats in Peru's Amazon

Nigerian astronaut lost in space...needs $3m to get home
Out of all the Nigerian scam emails I've seen over the years, the following example from 2004 has to be the best:
Subject: Nigerian Astronaut Wants To Come Home
Dr. Bakare Tunde
Astronautics Project Manager
National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA)
Garki, Abuja, FCT NIGERIA
Dear Mr. Sir,
REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE-STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL
I am Dr. Bakare Tunde, the cousin of Nigerian Astronaut, Air Force Major Abacha Tunde. He was the first African in space when he made a secret flight to the Salyut 6 space station in 1979. He was on a later Soviet spaceflight, Soyuz T-16Z to the secret Soviet military space station Salyut 8T in 1989. He was stranded there in 1990 when the Soviet Union was dissolved. His other Soviet crew members returned to earth on the Soyuz T-16Z, but his place was taken up by return cargo. There have been occasional Progrez supply flights to keep him going since that time. He is in good humor, but wants to come home.
In the 14-years since he has been on the station, he has accumulated flight pay and interest amounting to almost $ 15,000,000 American Dollars. This is held in a trust at the Lagos National Savings and Trust Association. If we can obtain access to this money, we can place a down payment with the Russian Space Authorities for a Soyuz return flight to bring him back to Earth. I am told this will cost $ 3,000,000 American Dollars. In order to access the his trust fund we need your assistance.
Consequently, my colleagues and I are willing to transfer the total amount to your account or subsequent disbursement, since we as civil servants are prohibited by the Code of Conduct Bureau (Civil Service Laws) from opening and/ or operating foreign accounts in our names.
Needless to say, the trust reposed on you at this juncture is enormous. In return, we have agreed to offer you 20 percent of the transferred sum, while 10 percent shall be set aside for incidental expenses (internal and external) between the parties in the course of the transaction. You will be mandated to remit the balance 70 percent to other accounts in due course.
Kindly expedite action as we are behind schedule to enable us include downpayment in this financial quarter.
Please acknowledge the receipt of this message via my direct number 234 (0) 9-234-2220 only.
Yours Sincerely, Dr. Bakare Tunde
Astronautics Project Manager
