Chilling Twitter Thread Describes The Dire Situation At NYC Hospitals

Despite the fact that COVID-19 has been around since November, many countries (and people) are still figuring out how to grapple with the outbreak as it worsens in countries like Italy and the United States. Unfortunately, hospitals stateside are already reeling from Coronavirus cases. Author Evan Siegfried took to Twitter last night with a chilling update from one of his friends who works at a New York City hospital. The nurse describes an alarming situation that's a combination of under-staffing, lack of supplies, and a serious need for blood. We sincerely hope that people stop hoarding medical supplies so that the professionals can take care of the people who really need help.

New Yorkers React To The State's First Case Of Coronavirus

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the state's first confirmed case of Coronavirus last night, the same day as the first deaths from the disease were announced. The victim, a 39 year old woman who had just traveled to Iran, is currently quarantined in her Manhattan apartment. It's predicted her husband will be host to the virus as well. While Cuomo assured the state that the risk is low, scared commuters and comedians from the city aired their fears and jokes on Twitter. And they're as entertaining as a pandemic can allow. Let's just hope people remember to wash their hands and are able to find some masks. The subway is about to become a very, very scary place.

School Bus Driver Violently Throws 'Kid' Off Of Bus, Shocks Ignorant Passersby

Well, here's a story with an M. Night Shyamalan twist for you! Twitter user @BonLouBoutinshared a video earlier today featuring a bus driver seemingly throwing a student off of his yellow school bus. We're relieved to report he was doing his civic duty and actually protecting the children trying to get to or from school. The small person he ejected from the vehicle was in fact a grown man, much to the shock of the people who had just been admonishing the driver. While the video is kind of amusing, it's also immensely disturbing that a creep could get away with this. We tip our hat to this gallant bus driver for doing what had to be done.

Crazy video of school bus driver throwing kid off of bus, turns out it is a midget / little person, a grown man.

Popular Youtuber Etika Found Dead In New York City

The NYPD's search for 29 year old Desmond 'Etika' Amofah has come to a tragic end. The New York Police Department confirmed earlier today that a body found in the East River was that of the allegedly troubled Youtuber. The police began searching for the popular live-streamer on June 20th following Amofah's disappearance, and before that, the uploading of a chilling video in which he revealed his suicidal thoughts. Many fans were hopeful that this was a moment of  being "overdramatic," similar to a stunt he had pulled in 2018.Things began taking a less hopeful turn when his belongings were recovered, scattered around the Manhattan Bridge. 

Following news of Etika's demise, many peers and fans took to Twitter and Youtube to share their shock, stories of happier times, and to implore people to pay attention to mental health.

 If you are struggling with mental illness or suicidal thoughts, remember that help is available. Talk to someone.

Cringey Thread About An NYC Commuter Is A Public Transit Nightmare

New York City's subway system is notoriously horrible. The MTA offers a melange of inconvenient construction, public defecation, constant delays, and even controversial line closures. Commuters battle with rats, garbage, dancing youths and sometimes even violent passengers. Unfortunately, not every subway saga is as adorable as pizza rat. Vice writer Sara David has opened our eyes to a whole new world of public transportation psychosis. A ludicrous tale involving rush hour and hard-boiled eggs. Brace yourselves - this tale ain't pretty.

Funny subway saga, hard boiled eggs, sara davis.
