Crews free man stuck between buildings after bid to impress

first_img SHARE PITTSBURGH (AP) — Crews have rescued a University of Pittsburgh student who became trapped between two off-campus buildings, reportedly after trying to jump from one rooftop to another to impress a woman he had just met.Authorities didn’t immediately identify the man but say he could face charges once he’s treated for what’s believed to be a broken ankle. He was freed about 6 a.m. Tuesday after being trapped about four hours when he fell awkwardly into the narrow, debris-filled space between the buildings.The man was bleeding but waved to TV news cameras as he was wheeled on a gurney to an ambulance.Public safety officials say crews broke a hole through a restaurant wall to reach him, and lowered another medic on a rope to ensure the rescue efforts didn’t injure the man even more.

Player has ‘aroused’ interest from Man United, Red Devils ‘very aware’…

first_imgLast November, we covered a report from Mundo Deportivo, who claimed that Manchester United and Juventus initiated contact with Jordi Alba’s agent Vicente Forés. The left-back’s current deal at Camp Nou runs down in 2020 and Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu admitted the club are working with him over a long-term contract.A ‘Top Secret’ report from Mundo Deportivo claims the defender’s representative met the leaders of the La Liga winners last week, when they agreed on the length of the deal – a five year contract.However, Alba is not satisfied with the salary offered to him as he has seen the likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Sergio Busquets, Ivan Rakitic, Gerard Pique and even Samuel Umtiti being handed better deals.The 29-year-old is aware that he has ‘aroused’ interest from Manchester United and Juventus with his impressive displays and the two clubs are ‘very aware’ of his situation at the club.So far there is no agreement over a salary between Alba and Barcelona and the Blaugrana are of the belief that despite interest from the Red Devils and the Serie A outfit, the fullback will commit his future to the club by signing an extension. Over the past few years, agents have linked their clients to United in order to put pressure on clubs to offer them a better deal.This could possibly be another case where Alba’s camp is using Manchester United links to pressure Barcelona to earn a better contract.Because a move to England, and even a Barca exit, seems unlikely at this Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameChallenge Your Brain With This Must-Play Strategy Game.

Paul almost a ‘shoo-in’ for first test

first_imgWest Indies all-rounder Keemo Paul has staked a strong claim to force his way into the Caribbean’s side final XI for the test match against England later this month following his excellent returns with the ball in his recent Regional first-class outing.   Paul, who has been in and around the West Indies side for the better part of 2018, has only gotten two opportunities at the test level.  His first in the Caribbean against Bangladesh – his debut – last July and the other four months later against India in Rajkot where he went wickless but stroked a promising innings of 47 in Windies first innings. He was then excluded for the final test match of that series and did not feature in West Indies’ most recent test matches against Bangladesh that followed.  His recent form with the ball, however, will inevitably provoke the interest of the Courtney Brown-led selection panel, moreso his rousing returns against the Windward Island Volcanoes, against whom he took his maiden 10-wicket match-haul (10-129) and got the ball to sway either side of the edges for most of the batsmen.    When asked by Stabroek Sport how he felt about his prospect of playing the first test, Paul said: “It’s all up to the selectors but once given the opportunity, I’ll definitely make the most of it… I think I’m ready.” For Paul, whose batting is highly touted and who has shown promising glimpses at the international level, he may, at this point be  competing against one of the out of sorts lower-order batsmen given his ability with the bat and his current bowling form.  The selectors, however, may decide to give him the nod as the first change seamer, on his current form.    Either way, the Essequibian is eager for another opportunity.   “I think my batting is definitely coming back around, and I am feeling pretty confident, and I am working on it a lot so once given the opportunity as I said, I am definitely looking to make an impact… I’ve been on the international stage for a couple of games now, so I want to make a bigger impact in games.” He touched on his gruelling and demanding workload as a seamer, which began during the last Regional four-day season and involved the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and his West Indies duties for which many pundits have expressed worry about.  Paul, however, while acknowledging the demands, explained that he is not too worried about it since he relies heavily on the prescribed rest and recovery regimen and his fitness to keep him going. He also lauded the inputs of former West Indies seamer and current West Indies bowling coach, Corey Collymore – who was an excellent exponent of the seaming delivery – for his guidance and “tireless” mentorship that aided in his development. Paul described, Collymore – a Barbadian – as his “big brother.”last_img read more
