A 15-year-old boy has died from injuries sustained in a climbing accident on a popular Phoenix mountain that claimed the life of an off-duty firefighter, police said on Saturday. Police in Phoenix, Arizona, said Trevor Crouse died at a local hospital on Friday night after falling about 30 feet earlier in the day while rappelling on Camelback Mountain with veteran firefighter Gary Johnstone and another teenage boy. Johnstone, 50, an experienced rescuer who served on the Phoenix Fire Department's technical rescue team since 2006, also died in the fall. An investigation continues into what went wrong, said Sergeant Steve Martos, a Phoenix police spokesman.

Bridge protest over NYC man's arrest death to proceed

Yahoo! National News - Sun, 08/10/2014 - 01:19

Reverend Al Sharpton arrives to speak before attending the funeral of Eric Garner in New YorkBy Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) - A march to protest the death of a New York City man in police custody will go ahead later this month on Staten Island, organizers said, although plans to walk over the bridge linking the island to the rest of the city have been scrapped. Reverend Al Sharpton, the civil rights activist behind the march, said on Saturday that protesters would drive in a caravan of cars and buses from Brooklyn to the point where Eric Garner, 43, died last month while being arrested by police. City officials said it was not safe for demonstrators to cross the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge on foot. A police officer put him in a choke hold - banned by the New York Police Department more than 20 years ago - and other officers restrained him in a way that compressed his chest as he was being arrested, according to the medical examiner.

Melrose Larry Green, 62, a comedian and occasional guest on Howard Stern’s radio show, peddles bus tours of celebrity homes on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles on Friday, Aug. 8, 2014. Green thinks President Obama’s decision to conduct airstrikes on militants in Iraq is one of political expediency, and he said removing U.S. forces from Iraq in 2011 was a mistake. On Friday, the U.S. unleashed its first airstrikes in northern Iraq against militants of the Islamic State group as a humanitarian crisis worsens.(AP Photo/Matt Hamilton)It was supposed to be over, America's war in Iraq. So all the old emotions boiled up anew as Americans absorbed the news that U.S. bombs were again striking targets in the nation where the United States led an invasion in 2003, lost almost 4,500 troops in the fight to stabilize and liberate it and then left nearly three years ago.
