Latina Mom Dies In Hospital Freak Elevator Accident 

A mother who had just given birth to her third daughter was reportedly cut in half at a Spanish hospital Sunday when her stretcher became stuck between floors inside an elevator, according to news.com.au.

Rocio Cortes Nunez, 26, was being transported between the second and third floors of Our Lady of Valme Hospital in Seville when the incident occurred.


I’m a total wreck,” Nunez’s husband, Jose Gaspar, told ABC Sevilla. “This cannot continue. Today it has been Rocio, but tomorrow it could be another person.”

David Gaspar, Nunez’s brother-in-law, told Europa Press the family was “devastated,” and Nunez’s mom said she only found out her daughter had died when she heard there was an accident at the hospital and approached a staff member.

“I went to the information desk,” Carmen Nunez said. “They told me that a girl had died, and then they confirmed that she was my daughter. What a cruel death she suffered.”

Nunez had given birth to her daughter, Triana, via Caesarean section and was on her way to a maternity ward at the time of the incident.

Nunez’s stretcher was pushed on to the elevator — which suddenly moved upwards before the stretcher was fully inside, trapping Nunez, whose head was reportedly stuck between the roof and the elevator frame.

Firefighters needed about two hours to reach Nunez’s body, according to local reports.

Aside from Triana, Nunez leaves behind daughters Carmen, 5, and Rocio, 4, The Telegraph reported.

So so sad! R.I.P.

Rap Star Lil Kim Connects With Biggie Through a Medium

In today’s side eye news –self proclaimed Hollywood medium, Tyler Henry, claims to make contact with rap queen Lil’ Kim’s late soulmate –Biggie. 

For those living on Mars, Christopher ‘Notorious Big/Biggie’ Wallace was a Brooklyn born rapper who has consistently been ranked as one of the greatest and most influential rappers of all time. He also founded the group Junior M.A.F.I.A. in which Lil’ Kim became the breakout international rap star. During the time, Biggie and Kim were also carrying on a torrid love affair while Biggie was married to soul singer, Faith Evans. Kim always claimed Biggie as her own man, despite his nuptials to another woman.

Prior to his death, Biggie was heavily involved in the growing East Coast–West Coast hip hop feud with rapper Tupac Shakur and Death Row records. 

On March 9, 1997, Wallace was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles. His shooter is still unknown.

Personally, I don’t know how to feel about mediums because I’ve never spoken to one, but I do think this guy was privy to the same information that WE ALL were about Kim & Big’s “situationship.” I mean I didn’t feel like he stated any facts that we didn’t already know but whatever. Let the guy work.

Check out the clip, what do you think? Are mediums real or real phony?
