Weird news

A New Hampshire woman who became stuck in a swimming pool after the ladder broke, turned to Facebook to ask for help to get out.

Sixty-one-year-old Leslie Kahn was swimming in her pool on August 11 when the ladder broke, leaving her stranded. She said she didn't have the strength to pull herself. No one else was home and her cell phone was inside.

She used a pool pole to drag the chair her iPad was on and posted in a community Facebook page, asking for help. She said she labelled the post '911' to get people's attention.

A woman, who lived nearby showed up, followed by the police and a neighbour.

Kahn, a breast cancer survivor, told WMUR-TV that sometimes you help others and other times, you ask for help.

It wasn't exactly the catch a Florida man was hoping for while fishing in the Atlantic Ocean. Instead, deputies say a drunken 22-year-old woman cursed at him before swimming up to his fishing line, biting it and swimming away with the rigging.

St Johns County Sheriff's officials tell local news outlets the fisherman told deputies the incident happened Tuesday evening as he was fishing with a rented pole near St Augustine.

Deputies asked Alexandria Turner to come to the pier office, but she became belligerent. Investigators say Turner created a scene and upset the "sense of public norm at the pier" when they tried to take her into custody.

She was arrested on suspicion of intoxication and resisting arrest.

A lawyer wasn't listed in court records.
