Watch (if you dare): 27cm parasite removed from North Korea defector

Warning: the attached video may not be for the squeamish

Parasitic worms found in a North Korean soldier have highlighted nutrition and hygiene problems experts say have long plagued the isolated and impoverished communist state.

The soldier was critically injured when he was fired on by North Korean soldiers as he crossed the demilitarised zone during a dramatic escape to South Korea, and was airlifted to hospital on Monday (November 13).

At a briefing on Wednesday (November 15), lead surgeon Lee Cook-jong displayed photos showing dozens of flesh-coloured parasites – including one 27cm long – removed from the wounded soldier’s digestive tract.

“In my over 20 year-long career as a surgeon, I have only seen something like this in a textbook,” Lee said.

The parasites, along with kernels of corn in his stomach, may confirm what many experts and previous defectors have interpreted from the food and hygiene situation for many North Koreans.

Experts believe that the discovery of such parasites in the soldier provide indirect evidence that infection problems have been prevalent in North Korea.

Lee said that parasitic worms, once common in South Korea 40 to 50 years ago, had all but disappeared as economic conditions greatly improved.

Hong Sung-tae, a professor at Seoul National University College of Medicine who specialises in parasites, says their presence north of the heavily fortified border dividing the two Koreas could be in part tied to the use of human excrement. “Due to the lack of fertiliser, North Koreans fertilise their fields with human excrement. And this becomes an immediate cause of the parasitic infection,” he added.

Wisconsin Man Accused of Escaping from Police, Stealing Squad Car, Leading Chase
A Wisconsin man was arrested after he allegedly escaped a sheriff squad vehicle, stole a second vehicle and led police on an 18-mile chase on February 12. The Adams County Sheriff’s Office released dashcam video showing the incident on February 16.
Levi Hedding, 27, of Coloma, Wisconsin, had been stopped by deputies from the sheriff’s offices from Adams and Marquette counties on a warrant for charges he had been trafficking heroin, the sheriff’s office said at the time of the arrest. “Hedding initially lied to deputies about his name and attempted to flee on foot before being taken into custody,” officials said.
While officers processed evidence, Hedding escaped through the rear window of an Adams County squad vehicle. He then took a Marquette County squad vehicle and fled the scene, according to officials. He then led officers on an 18-mile chase, which involved law enforcement from the area, the sheriff’s office said.
Hedding crashed the squad car into a ditch in Adams County before attempting to flee on foot, the sheriff’s office said. He was then apprehended by a Marquette County K-9 and deputies from both agencies.
Hedding was charged with possession of heroin with intent to deliver, escape, operating vehicle without owner’s consent, operating with a restricted controlled substance, reckless driving, obstructing/resisting an officer, possession of drug paraphernalia, operating without a valid driver’s license, felony fleeing and felony bail jumping.
The dashcam video shows Hedding’s initial apprehension, his escape from the squad vehicle and the ensuing chase.

Curious Great White Shark Plays With Underwater Camera

Killer sharks just want to have fun.

This great white shark got curious when it recently encountered this underwater camera off the coast of New Zealand. It started with a few playful nudges — then, a full-on grab, bringing the camera to the surface not once, but three times.

The playful footage was captured for the Global FinPrint Project, which studies shark habitats around the world. Overfishing in New Zealand has driven many sharks out of their homes, so finding this playful creature was rare.

Fire at Tibet's Most Sacred Temple Extinguished, But Damage Feared
Firefighters in the Tibetan capital, Lhasa, put out a blaze on Saturday, January 17, at the city’s landmark Jokhang Temple, an ancient site sacred to Buddhists. Chinese state media said nobody was injured.
The fire started at 6:40pm Lhasa time, Sina said, and was “quickly extinguished,” with “no damage to heritage.” Earlier reports in other independent media were more alarming, saying the fire had potentially put the
temple, considered the holiest of places by Tibetan buddhists, at significant risk.
This video was posted to the Twitter account of Michael Ye, who describes himself as a resident of Shanghai.
The oldest part of the temple was built more than 1,300 years ago and the whole structure was added to Unesco’s World Heritage list in 2000 as part of the Potala Palace, according to the South China Morning Post.
