A 78-year-old Utah woman endured a close call when she was stuck in quicksand for more than half a day, but she eventually escaped unharmed.
Sharon Brussell was supposed to show up at an event near Arches National Park and people became worried when she didn’t appear.
After they were alerted, Grand County Sheriff’s Office deputies began searching for Brussell on a bike path she had been known to frequent.
She was finally found in the quicksand with one of her legs stuck up to the knee after about 14 hours in the sticky substance.
It took four people to dig her out because the displaced sand kept sliding back.
The park employee said she was aware of quicksand forming in the area in the past, but indicated that it was a rare occurrence.
KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – Hundreds of American women are being ensnared by Internet scammers based in Malaysia, with some losing over a quarter of a million dollars, as the country becomes an epicenter for online crime perpetrated by Africans, U.S. officials say.
The mostly Nigerian conmen, who enter Malaysia on student visas, take advantage of the country’s good Internet infrastructure to prey on lonely, middle-aged women, wooing them on dating websites before swindling their savings, they said.
The scams are more sophisticated than most Nigeria-based operations – which most Internet users have experienced at some time either via email or advertising – helped by Malaysia’s advanced banking system, which allows perpetrators to quickly set up accounts and receive international transfers.

Nigerian army chiefs are the incontrovertible sponsors of Boko Haram deadly terrorist sect ravaging the north of the nation.
When seeking sponsors of terrorists, one must trace either their finances or their source of ammunition. Based on this, the Nigerian military and security services is the provable sponsor of the sect. Boko Haram leader, ‘Abubakar Shekau,’ thanks the military in his every broadcast for their dutiful supply of equipment to the sect. Boko Haram acquires numerous army tanks, Armored Personnel Carriers, APC’s and all forms of weapons, rounds of ammunition and rockets from the nation’s army.
They [Boko Haram] recently received more weapons and armored vehicles from Damboa barrack as they have from other cheap, successful attacks of Giwa and other barracks in the past. This is direct sponsorship. The ex-military chiefs are also implicated…
