Six die as SUV falls into creek
JACKSON, Miss. - Five children and one adult died after a sport-utility vehicle plunged into a rain-swollen creek in eastern Mississippi early Saturday.
Neshoba County Sheriff Tommy Waddell said the victims appear to have drowned after a Dodge Durango went off a county road 20 miles southeast of Philadelphia, Miss., just after midnight.
Five siblings died. They have been identified as 9-year-old Dasyanna John, 8-year-old Duane John, 7-year-old Bobby John, 4-year-old Quinton John, and 18-month-old Kekaimeas John. Family friend Diane Chickaway also died. The sheriff said all were members of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians.
The father of the children, Dewayne John, escaped and remains hospitalized. Their mother, Deanna Jim, and Chickaway's husband, Dale Chickaway, also survived.
Vultures strip visitors' cars
HOMESTEAD, Fla. - Visitors to parts of Everglades National Park are getting tarps and bungee cords to make their vehicles less delectable to vultures.
Migrating vultures have developed a habit of ripping off windshield wipers, sunroof seals, and other rubber and vinyl vehicle parts. Visitors to the park's Homestead and Flamingo entrances are loaned "anti-vulture kits" to protect their vehicles.
Park wildlife biologist Skip Snow said that the vultures are migrating as normal. Park employees have tried to scare away the vultures, but nothing has worked. - AP
