2-Month-Old Nearly Loses Toes After Strand of Mom’s Hair Cuts Off His Circulation for Hours

A 10-week-old boy is recovering after nearly losing four of his toes when a strand of his mother’s hair became tangled on his foot, cutting off the baby’s circulation for at least 12 hours, his mother says.

“It was a horrible experience,” Alex Upton, 26, said of the ordeal that landed her infant son, Ezra, in the hospital last month.

Upton, of Paignton, England, said she was awakened by Ezra’s cries, and became confused when the baby wouldn’t drink any milk. Then, Upton said, she noticed that four toes on Ezra’s foot were red and swollen.

The concerned mom of two looked closer and saw that a single strand of her long, brown hair had become wrapped around his toes, and was cutting off the baby’s blood circulation.

“It must have been on there for 12 to 14 hours because I only noticed it in the morning,” Upton said. “I pulled at it and realized how tightly it’d wrapped around his toes. It’d tangled around three or four of them. I felt awful.”

Upton tried for more than 15 minutes to remove the tangled hair, noting that she used a pair of tweezers to ultimately cut the strand away. She took the boy to a local hospital where a doctor gave her antibacterial cream for Ezra’s damaged toes.

Upton said she feared that Ezra’s toes would have been removed had she not found the hair in time.

“I’m normally really safety conscious with the kids, but I had never expected this to happen to us,” she said, noting that Ezra is back to his “normal” self.

“My advice to any parents would be when you’re changing or putting on socks, or even getting them out of the bath, check thoroughly and make sure you turn clothing inside out first to remove any stray hair.”

A hair tourniquet can occur when babies even just a strand of hair ends up in places like a diaper, or sock without a parent noticing, according to Today. The strand can wrap around a baby’s toe, finger, or umbilical stump so tight that it can cut through the skin and cut off blood circulation.

“Hair easily gets stuck in things when they’ve been in the washing machine too, so it’s important to check,” Upton said.

Father of Two Nearly Dies After Being Bitten By Rattlesnake’s Severed Head: ‘It Was Very Scary’

A man from Corpus Cristi, Texas, is recovering in the hospital after receiving more than 20 doses of antivenom to save him from a bite he received from the severed head of a rattlesnake.

On May 27, Jennifer Sutcliffe was beginning to prep her yard and garden for a family cookout that day when she came across a startling sight.

“I was pulling the grass and little weeds that were growing,” Sutcliffe, a nurse, tells PEOPLE. “I reached down to pull a clump of grass that was growing by one of my flowers — and I almost grabbed a rattlesnake.”

The snake, a four-foot long Western diamondback, was slithering through the garden and had come dangerously close to the mother of two. Sutcliffe called out to her husband, Jeremy, who ran over with a shovel and rammed it into the venomous animal, decapitating it. With the snake’s head severed from its body, the couple figured they were clear of any danger. But when Jeremy reached down to dispose of the animal’s remains almost 10 minutes later, the snake sunk its fangs into the fingers of his right hand.

Sutcliffe called 911 and helped her husband into their car as she tried to find a local hospital with rattlesnake antivenom available. But as she drove, Jeremy’s condition rapidly worsened, and it seemed as if they were quickly running out of time.

“We only got two miles down the road before he started going in and out of consciousness and having seizures. It was very scary,” Sutcliffe, 43, recalls. “I was trying to keep him calm, alert and awake, and just letting him know we were getting help.”

RELATED: Alabama Father Paralyzed After Venomous Coral Snake Bite: He ‘Thought It Was Just a Kingsnake’

With Jeremy fading, Sutcliffe pulled over and waited for medical personnel, who then rushed Jeremy to a helicopter and flew him to Christus Spohn Shoreline Hospital. Once there, Jeremy went into septic shock, and doctors had to place him in a medically induced coma by that evening.

“His blood pressure kept bottoming out, so they were giving him a lot of fluids,” Sutcliffe says. “I thought maybe he was going to be okay, but then the doctor told me it was a very grim scenario, because of the amount of venom that he got. That’s when I realized he wasn’t out of the woods.”

With her husband on a ventilator and his organs failing, doctors told Jennifer several times during those first 24 hours that her 40-year-old husband may not make it through the ordeal. Thankfully, Jeremy survived that first critical day, and doctors were able to stabilize him.

Jeremy made it out his coma on May 31, after receiving a total of 26 doses of antivenom, a massive amount considering bites typically only need two to four doses, Jennifer says. As of Thursday, Jeremy remains in stable condition, though he is experiencing acute renal failure.

“He’s stable, but he’s still on dialysis because his kidneys aren’t working,” Sutcliffe says. “They’re doing a lot of wound care as he lost the skin on his right two middle fingers, it’s just a high risk of infection for that wound.”

The couple has set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for Jeremy’s medical expenses, which has so far raised $ 200 of their $ 10,000 goal.

RELATEDWoman Mauled By Bear in Montana Walks Miles to Safety With Skull Fracture

According to National Geographic, when a snake is decapitated, its head still has the capacity to carry out reflexive action, such as being able to open its mouth, bite and inject large amounts of venom. They are able to keep these reflexive abilities up to an hour after having their heads severed. In a story that made headlines in 2014, a chef from China was fatally bitten by a severed cobra’s head while he prepared to cook its body for soup — some 20 minutes after he decapitated it. In January of that same year, an Austrailian man was bitten by a red-bellied black snake 45 minutes after he severed its head with a shovel.

It’s important to point out that not all snakes in North America are venomous, and are harmless to humans. But if you are bitten by a venomous serpent — such as a rattlesnake, coral snake, water moccasin and copperhead — Mayo Clinic suggests that you remain calm, remove jewelry and tight clothing before you start to swell, and position yourself so that the bite is below or at the level of your heart until you can get medical attention.

“One of the things I’ve learned is if it ever happens again, is if we’re able to step away from the snake and not getting bitten, go into the house and call 911,” Sutcliffe says of what she would do differently. “Have them come to take care of the snake, that would be the best scenario next time.”

Jamie Otis Is Celebrating Christmas Nearly One Month Late — but She Has a Good Reason

There’s a very good reason why Married at First Sight star Jamie Otis just got around to celebrating Christmas with her family — they had the flu during the actual holiday.

“Family Road Trip!” she wrote on social media Saturday, alongside a series of sweet pictures of her and husband Doug Hehner spending quality time with their four-month-old daughter Henley Grace.

“Heading up to see my family for Christmas🎄 Yeeep, Xmas!🙈 ,” she added, explaining, “We had the flu the weekend we were suppose to go up.🤧

Otis, 31, also added that getting a good family photo to document the trip was harder than she expected.

“Trying to take a family pic to document the trip is seriously the worst…we ended up taking a selfie in the parking lot,” she wrote.

RELATEDJamie Otis Reveals If She Would Let Daughter Henley Find Love on Married at First Sight

Following the birth of their daughter in August, the couple — who met for the first time as Otis walked down the aisle towards Hehner on Lifetime’s hit show — opened up to PEOPLE about why they were relishing every second with their newborn.

The reality star revealed that shortly after losing their son — whom the couple named Johnathan Edward — four months into Otis’ pregnancy last summer, the couple began trying to have another baby. And finally, on Johnathan’s due date in December, they found out they were expecting their daughter.

“I’m not usually superstitious, but I definitely think Henley was a gift from her big brother,” Otis revealed.

“Then I have to remember that that’s how I found love and if I had never opened my mind and my heart, I wouldn’t be standing here with my beautiful daughter.”

Either way, the reality star isn’t ready to think quite that far ahead yet. “Let’s just pump the brakes!” she added.

Timbaland Reveals He Nearly Overdosed On Painkillers: ‘Through That Whole Thing I Saw Life’

Timbaland is opening up about a scary addiction he says almost took his life.

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the producer revealed that he “was on drugs” until three years ago.

“I was on OxyContin,” said the 45-year-old.

Timbaland said that he first began taking pain medication in his 30s after dealing with nerve issues from a years-earlier gunshot wound. He eventually began to abuse the drug, falling into what Rolling Stone called a “cycle of depression and addiction” as his career struggled and his marriage ended.

“Music is a gift and curse,” said Timbaland. “Once you’re not popping, it plays with your mind. The pills helped block out the noise — I’d just sleep all day. I remember JAY-Z told me one time, ‘Don’t do no more interviews’ — because I was saying crazy s—.”

Things got so bad, his girlfriend Michelle told the outlet, she wouldn’t sleep for fear he’d stop breathing in the night. Her nightmare came true three years ago, Timbaland said, when he suffered what he thinks was a near-fatal overdose while he was asleep.

“All I can tell you is that there was a light,” the rapper said. “I woke up trying to catch my breath, like I was underwater. But through that whole thing I saw life — I saw where I would be if I don’t change, and where I could be if I did.”

He said he weaned himself off the pills, and eventually stopped taking them completely, which lead to withdrawal. “But I thought about Michael Jackson,” he said. “I didn’t want to be old and taking these pills.”

RELATED VIDEO: Empire Stars Tell What Music Fans Can Expect

Though Timbaland said he still sometimes smokes marijuana and drinks alcohol, he’s overall healthier and has dropped 40 pounds.

The star also wants to get a message out to young artists in the hip-hop community, who may suffer depression and turn to medication.

“These kids come from a place where they don’t have money, don’t have a real home,” said Timbaland. “It affects them, and you hear it in the music.”

Sharon Osbourne Says Simon Cowell Is ‘Doing So Much Better’ Nearly a Week After Hospitalization

 

Simon Cowell is on the mend after his hospitalization.

Early Friday morning, the America’s Got Talent judge, 58, was rushed to the hospital after fainting and falling down the stairs at his London home. His rep said he couldn’t sleep and was trying to get a glass of hot milk.

Now that he’s had nearly a week to rest  — he missed the first live episodes of the current season of X Factor UK in England on Saturday and Sunday — fellow judge Sharon Osbourne said Cowell is “going to be okay.”

“He’s doing so much better,” Osbourne, 65, shared on Wednesday’s The Talk. “His partner, Lauren, came down to on both nights, so she was there flying Simon’s flag.”

“She was just saying that he suffers from low blood pressure anyway,” Osbourne said of Cowell’s partner Lauren Silverman, with whom he shares 3-year-old son Eric. “Because of the concussion, that’s why he couldn’t come back.”

WATCH: Simon Cowell Rushed to Hospital After ‘Scary’ Accident at His London Home

Following the scary incident, Cowell admitted that the moment was a wake-up call reminding him that he needs to take better care of himself.

“I’d gone to get some hot milk because I felt ropey. On the way back upstairs, I just remember feeling really dizzy,” Cowell told The Sun.

He continued, “Next thing I know someone was putting a neck brace on me and I had a terrible headache, which must have been from me hitting the stairs. I was worried at first that I’d done some real damage.”

“Sometimes we get a reminder that we’re not invincible and this was certainly mine. It was a huge shock,” said Cowell, who returned to his London home hours after his hospitalization on Friday afternoon. “They think I fainted because I had low blood pressure and so I have got to really take good care of myself to sort that out. After all I am a dad and have more responsibility than ever.”

Cowell concluded: “I know I was very lucky I didn’t hurt myself seriously. It could have been a lot worse. I must say, everyone at the hospital were incredible. I’m truly grateful.”

RHONY Feuding Got So Bitter the Ladies Didn’t Talk for ‘a Month’ — and One Star Nearly Quit

The Real Housewives of New York are about to take another bite out of the Big Apple — but not without a little hesitation.

Dorinda Medley tells PEOPLE Now that she was hesitant to return for season 9 of the series after facing accusations of drug use from her cast mates.

“I think the whole season hampered a lot of us from coming back to the show,” admits Medley. “I don’t think it was just one thing. I kind of left the show last year feeling like it was quite dark.”

“It’s one thing when you have the controversy and then you have the resolution and you have all those whacky moments,” she explains. “But, it was dark.”

During the season 8 reunion, Sonja Morgan and Bethenny Frankel accused Medley of using cocaine. “Everybody knows you do drugs,” charged Morgan.

In response, Medley said, “I don’t do drugs. How would I do all these drugs when lives with me? I’m home every night.”

“Usually after the reunion, everyone goes to dinner and they have a great time. Everybody just like slithered out of there, we didn’t even speak to each other for a month,” Medley explains of the aftermath.

BLACKOUT: Dish Subscribers In 36 States Lose Access To Nearly 130 Stations

(Reuters) – Dish Network Corp said subscribers have lost access to more than 100 local stations due to a distribution dispute with Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc, affecting viewers of a string of ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC channels.

Dish said 129 stations in 36 states and the District of Columbia were pulled from its service on Tuesday, in the latest of a string of distribution disputes between media conglomerates and pay TV companies such as Dish.

Dish and Sinclair had agreed on fees to carry its TV stations but the broadcaster was holding out to try to negotiate a carriage agreement for a cable channel it does not yet own, Dish, the second-largest U.S. satellite TV company, said in a statement.

“Sinclair rejected our extension offer and has chosen to use innocent consumers as pawns to gain leverage for the economic benefit of Sinclair, while causing substantial harm and disruption to the lives of consumers,” said Warren Schlichting, Dish’s senior vice president of programming.

Sinclair could not immediately be reached for comment outside regular U.S. business hours.

 

 

Dish had filed a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission on Aug. 15 regarding Sinclair’s intention to black out channels.

Dish asked for a stay action the next day after the two companies agreed to a short-term contract extension to renegotiate a new retransmission agreement.

Like other pay-TV operators, Dish has been losing subscribers as viewers shift to online video offerings by rivals such as Netflix Inc.

In another distribution dispute in December, CBS Corp and Dish reached a multiyear deal hours after CBS pulled CBS, CBS Sports and Showtime from top Dish markets, blacking out NFL football games and TV shows such as “The Big Bang Theory.”

A Nearly Unrecognizable Game of Thrones Actress, and More Best Dressed From BAFTA TV Awards

Across the pond in London last night, Brits celebrated their TV stars with the BAFTA TV Awards, and the fashion, as you’d hope, was simply smashing (Briticism required). The best-dressed mix included actresses we’ve have grown to love, plus new names with style so sharp (not to mention a Game of Thrones actor or two), it might be time to start tuning in internationally. Take a look:

sophie-mcshera-black-white-dress-bafta-tv-awards-2015
Sophie McShera, Downton Abbey‘s Daisy, still surprises when she’s in anything but a kitchen apron (and there have been so many seasons for us to get used to the phenomeon!). Last night, she picked an elegantly simple combo of floor-sweeping skirt and cropped top.

maisie-williams-blue-lace-dress-bafta-tv-awards
The other surprise glamour girl was Maisie Williams, who looked sweet and super feminine in a periwinkle lace pick by Self Portrait. Her Game of Thrones arc might have her out of the boyish togs, but it’s still doubtful that anything this divine is coming up for Arya.

ophelia-lovibond-snake-print-dress-bafta-tv-awards
British beauty Ophelia Lovibond has made her mark in U.S. television, appearing stateside in Elementary, and one could argue our style sense has rubbed off on her. Rather than go the prim English rose route, she picked a crop-top gown with a scaly-but-glam snake print.

donna-air-pink-dress-bafta-tv-awards-2015
The best angle of Brit TV presenter Donna Air’s peachy gown was from the side, where the shape of the sculpted hip panels was on full display. That construction wasn’t just for looks, either—the custom House of Fraser piece had LED lights on the sides and bodice that lit up.

dianna-agron-black-sheer-dress-bafta-tv-awards-2015
The night’s award for chicest American in London certainly went to Dianna Agron, who did all-black with sheer sleeves that reached to her wrists. Her top is from Simone Rocha and the skirt is Comme des Garçons.

For further proof that it’s insane to see favorite TV characters IRL, please reference all of these Game of Thrones women.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Sandwich Is Nearly 80,000 Calories And Cooked On A Tank

Arnold Schwarzenegger is making a sandwich — and you know the “Terminator” star isn’t going to settle for ham and swiss.

The former California governor and action movie hero teamed up with the gang from Epic Meal Time to produce the “Steak & Egger Sandwich,” a 78,583-calorie monstrosity fit for Conan the Barbarian. It features bacon and eggs cooked on the metal surface of Schwarzenegger’s tank. (Yes, he has his own M47 Patton tank… because, why wouldn’t he?)

The video promotes a contest on Omaze for After-School All-Stars, a charity backed by Schwarzenegger that provides after-school activities for kids. For just $ 10, contestants can win a trip to hang with Schwarzenegger and Epic Meal Time’s Harley Morenstein, make an epic meal together and go for a ride in that tank.
