I had no idea she had health problems. For a while, it seemed like H.W. was going to go since he was in and out of the hospital.

Southwest flight 1380 ATC Recordings Emergency Landing at Philadelphia
Fatality and injuries wrote:
According to statements by passengers, the passenger in the seat next to the failed window was partially ejected or "sucked out" of the cabin by the explosive decompression[22][23][24] resulting in the top half of her torso being outside of the fuselage.[25] Other passengers pulled her back into the cabin and attempted to plug the hole in the fuselage where the window used to be using jackets and other items. This was not successful, and these items were ejected from the aircraft. The victim, Jennifer Riordan, a Wells Fargo Bank vice president from Albuquerque, New Mexico,[26] was critically injured and died in hospital later that day.[22][23][13]

Peggy Phillips, a retired nurse, and Tim McGunty,[27] an emergency medical technician, began CPR on Riordan.[28] The CPR was continued for 20 minutes until landing. The coroner later reported that the cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head, neck, and torso.

TotalBiscuit dies

The Cynical Brit did some really good game reviews so this will be a loss. Some didn't like his style but he told it as it was... there was a tendency to shill in the last few years but he stuck to he views well

My only complaint was closing off his youtube comments, and shunning most social media. (I mean, I get it, being a public spectacle is hard, but is it really hard to leave them running and to just ignore them? I guess it was.)

Sad to hear about his passing though. I could swear I saw him post a video the other day.

Harlan Ellison

Name sounded vaguely familiar, but I'm not directly familiar with his works.

With this rant, I'll definitely check out his stuff: Harlan Ellison -- Pay the Writer

Saman Gunan
Quote:
The 38-year-old was working as a volunteer when he lost consciousness underwater during the rescue mission late last week as he placed extra air tanks inside the cave.


He was a former member of the Royal Thai Navy’s Underwater Demolition Assault Unit, which is known as the Thai Navy SEALs. After quitting from the unit, he worked as a patrol officer at Bangkok’s international airport.

He recorded a video of himself just before he left for northern Chiang Rai province to join the rescue effort. In the video he said he wanted to help “bring the boys back home”.

“Loaded all my stuff on to the plane. I’m ready to fly to Chiang Rai,” Mr Gunan said in Thai on the self-shot video, reported the Associated Press.

“See you at Tham Luang in Chiang Rai. May good luck be on our side to bring the boys back home.”
