Video shows young girl barely missed by falling stadium debris

Video surfaced yesterday of a young girl barely dodging falling debris from a Ukrainian soccer stadium.

You can see the girl running toward the stadium, and dive to the ground as she spots a large part of the stadium detach and fall toward the ground.

Upon seeing this, she lays on the ground and covers her head, as the large window misses her by what appears to be inches.

According to Bleacher Report, Donbass Arena is home to Ukranian Football club Shakhtar Donetsk, and was damaged during the nation's tensions with Russia.

Ten indicted in major international human trafficking and bothel bust

A federal grand jury in San Francisco has indicted ten people who allegedly ran a network of 40 brothels throughout the Bay Area employing women trafficked primarily from Asian countries, the U.S. Attorney's Office has announced.

Federal prosecutors said the defendants operated 30 brothels in cities including Pinole, San Mateo, Redwood City, Sunnyvale, Belmont, Fremont, Cupertino, Santa Clara, Foster City, San Bruno, Colma and South San Francisco from at least August 2002 through July 2014.

Members of the enterprise also sent a number of outgoing wire transfers to Asian countries from at least March 4, 2004 to Oct. 3, 2013 to other members of the group and to known prostitutes.

There were at least 23 such international wire transfers totaling $179,218 to Leow Wan Ru Veron, 54, an alleged recruiter of prostitutes in Singapore, and 20 totaling $109,300 to Chonthicha Jaemratanasophin, 48, an alleged prostitute living in Thailand.

The charges in the indictment include conspiring to conduct enterprise affairs through a pattern of racketeering activity, use of a facility in interstate and foreign commerce to promote prostitution, laundering of monetary instruments, importation of aliens for an immoral purpose and transportation in interstate and foreign commerce for prostitution.

Prosecutors said seven of those named in the indictment were arrested today and made their initial appearance in court, including Allen Fong, 58, of San Mateo; Robert Chun, 54, of San Francisco; Jie Mu, 43, of San Francisco; Laurence Shu Kwan Lee, 36, of San Francisco; Kevin Hartig, 58, of Daly City; Angelina Chuong, 39, of San Francisco and Jaemratanasophin.

Jaemratanasophin was detained, while the others were released on bonds ranging from $100,000 to $500,000.

Fong is scheduled to appear again on Dec. 16 at 2:30 p.m. before U.S. District Court Judge Richard Seeborg, while the other defendants are scheduled to appear in Magistrate Court at 9:30 a.m. on Oct. 29.

C-section planned for pregnant woman hit by tow truck

A woman nearly eight months pregnant was involved in a tragic accident, and is now fighting for her life.

Jenny Quiles was on her way to the doctor for a check-up, and was crossing First Avenue North in St. Petersburg when she was hit by a tow truck.

Her husband Angel told FOX 13 that seconds before the crash, Jenny shielded her belly to protect her unborn child.

Thankfully the baby is doing well and doctors are planning a C-section in a couple of weeks.

As for Jenny, she's listed in critical condition. Doctors said she is unresponsive and suffering from a severe brain injury, but remains stable.

The young couple has been married for nearly a year, and had their whole lives ahead of them.

"She has changed my whole world. She taught me to open my mind. She has been a blessing to me.”

Angel said he's not sure what to do next. Medical bills are stacking up; the baby is coming soon and they were not financially prepared for this accident.

As Jenny remains in the hospital and the baby's due date nears, family and friends have set up an account to help the Quiles family with the unexpected medical bills, and the arrival of their new child.
