“She didn’t have to suffer,” Adela Aguilar said, shaking her head as she recalled the moment her granddaughter said goodbye to her last month.

Adela Ramírez had just turned 28 and had made a major decision: she was leaving Cuyamel, a small town in northwestern Honduras, and heading to the United States.

“I told him – ‘Don’t go. Here you live well. Here you can live wherever you want, working,'” Aguilar told CNN affiliate Televicentro.

Still, Aguilar said her granddaughter was confident she would find a better life in the United States, where her mother and sisters already lived.

Now Aguilar and other family and friends have told Televicentro they are heartbroken and stunned after learning that Ramírez was among dozens of migrants found dead this week in a tractor-trailer in San Antonio, in Texas.

Investigators are still working to identify the victims of what a Homeland Security Investigations officer called the deadliest human trafficking incident in US history. At least 53 people have died and some victims may be under the age of 18.

Authorities said migrants from Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras were among the dead. And in communities thousands of miles from San Antonio, members of devastated families are beginning to come forward to share stories of their loved ones.

Two brothers were thrilled to find work in the United States and send money to their mother

Karen Caballero told reporters that her sons’ trip to the United States was meant to be the start of a new chapter in their lives.

“We planned it together as a family, so they could have a different life, so they could achieve their goals and their dreams,” she said. “That was the starting point.”

Authorities said his sons, Fernando José Redondo Caballero, 18, and Alejandro Miguel Andino Caballero, 23, were among the victims. Alejandro’s wife, Margie Tamara Paz Grajera, 25, also perished.

Speaking to reporters outside her home in Las Vegas, Honduras, Caballero shared how much she adores her sons.

“For me, my sons have always been the most beautiful children in my world,” she said.

She told Telemundo her sons were thrilled with the trip – the same way they had been when they were young boys waiting to go to a birthday party. They had wanted to build him a house with the money they would earn working in the United States.

“Triumph and stay focused,” she told them before leaving.

Karen Caballero is comforted during an impromptu conference at her home in Las Vegas, Honduras.  His two sons were among the victims of what is described as the deadliest human trafficking incident in US history.
The brothers’ grandfather, Miguel Ángel Lara, told CNN en Español he sensed something serious had happened. The family had lost contact with them, he said, and then he learned of the San Antonio tragedy.

“Someone said to me, ‘Watch TV.’ And I looked, and I said, my boys are here.”

She texted her friend that she crossed the border

Back in Cuyamel, Adela Ramirez’s relatives told Televicentro they struggled to come to terms with her death.

“We were like sisters,” said Claudia Vallecillo, a close friend.

“I can’t believe the news,” Vallecillo said, showing Televicentro the house where Ramírez had lived with his mother and sisters.

The balloons from Ramírez’s recent birthday party are still in the living room, near the motorcycle she rode. Sandals and high heels line the wall of her bedroom, where a stack of photos includes an image of her 2015 graduation from the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Institute in Puerto Cortés, Honduras, with a major in business administration.

“I’m here, and seeing his things, I feel even worse,” Vallecillo said.

Adela Ramirez appears in a 2015 graduation photo.

Ramírez’s mother and sisters had all left for the United States within the past year, family members told Televicentro.

And Ramírez left to join them last month, Vallecillo said. The two friends stayed in touch throughout his journey.

On Monday morning, Ramírez sent Vallecillo a series of text messages asking him to keep it a secret.

“I’m in the States now. … But don’t tell anyone,” she wrote.

“Now I’m going to be with my mom and my sisters,” Vallecillo said, Ramírez told him.

But Ramírez never had the chance to reunite with his family. Later that day, the truck was found in San Antonio.

As they grieve, Vallecillo says Ramírez’s loved ones hope authorities will help bring his remains back to his hometown.

“We are asking the government to help us and send us her body so that we can bury her here,” she said, “to see her for the last time.”

CNN en Español’s Ana Melgar, Elvin Sandoval, Marlon Sorto and Isabel Rodriguez contributed to this report.

ESCUINTLA, Guatemala — The Make-A-Wish Foundation has caused some controversy this week as it recently left a young twisted metal fan drives an ice cream truck through a river of lava.

“Oh my god, it’s like that video game he plays so much,” said Holly Connor, referring to her critically ill son who plays in 1996 twisted metal 2 almost daily. “I don’t know why Ashton loves this game so much, but it’s his favorite thing in the world. It’s so special, what they did for him. And paint that ice cream truck to look like the one of Sweet Tooth, it’s just the perfect touch.

“Is my son okay?” she added, watching the ice cream truck sink into the lava.

The nonprofit, which helps fulfill the wishes of children with serious illnesses, sprang into action and a helicopter crew rescued the boy from the smoldering ice cream truck before he crashed. completely disintegrates, the boy’s wish to play twisted metal in real life having been achieved

” I want to go back there ! said young Ashton, after all the crew and spectators had been escorted out of the volcanic area. “It was like in the game! They let me run over a guy on a motorcycle!

Many have wondered if the good intentions of the Make-A-Wish Foundation went too far in recreating the gameplay of the iconic vehicular combat game.

“Look, meeting John Cena or running on an NBA court, I get it,” said Troy Gandy, Ashton’s stepfather, who thought the whole trip to Guatemala was a bit too much. “But they’re now letting kids fulfill their violent video game fantasies?” What happens when a child asks them for a bazooka or something? I don’t really want to be in town when a child who loves fortnite is Make-A-Wishing, you know what I mean?

As of press time, the Make-A-Wish Foundation had many Los Angeles residents worried by starting to build a series of ramps across the city’s rooftops.

Family’s truck stolen from Lakewood Hospital parking lot while visiting son in intensive care https://www.soc-usa.org/familys-truck-stolen-from-lakewood-hospital-parking-lot-while-visiting-son-in-intensive-care/ Tue, 21 Jun 2022 03:30:00 +0000 https://www.soc-usa.org/familys-truck-stolen-from-lakewood-hospital-parking-lot-while-visiting-son-in-intensive-care/ LAKEWOOD, Colo. — This week was life changing for Kristi and Casey Koons. “I literally don’t think there’s anything else we can take,” Kristi said Monday.

LAKEWOOD, Colo. — This week was life changing for Kristi and Casey Koons.

“I literally don’t think there’s anything else we can take,” Kristi said Monday.

Their 19-year-old son, Cole, was involved in a motorcycle accident in Longmont on June 11 while on his way to work. The accident happened near Nelson and airport roads when, they say, a car pulled up in front of him.

“He fractured his femur, his tibia. His pelvis was broken, his ribs were cracked and his lungs were punctured. Internal organs were punctured. Shoulder blades and shoulder. And then he has a lesion traumatic brain injury and skull fractures,” says Kristi.

As of Monday afternoon, Cole remained in serious condition in intensive care at St. Anthony’s Hospital in Lakewood, fighting for his life.

“He’s in a coma. They don’t know if he’s going to wake up,” Kristi said.

The couple are awaiting news at a hotel opposite the hospital, an hour from their home in Loveland.

Just a week after the accident, they faced their next challenge.

“My sister-in-law was here at the time, and she said, ‘Who had the truck earlier today? “And we were confused by the statement,” Kristi said. “And she said, ‘We watched him go. “”

The couple say someone stole Casey’s 2009 Ford F-250 from the hospital parking lot on June 18. He thinks he misplaced his keys and a heartless thief took advantage of their vulnerability.

“I should have double-checked, but I didn’t. I didn’t think it through,” Casey said. “I thought I put them in my pocket, and I must have missed that.”

His truck contained work tools and helped haul a trailer for his flooring business. The family planned to use it to also pull an RV they planned to rent so they could stay near the hospital without paying high hotel room rates.

“Our souls are just crushed, and there’s nothing left for us to do,” Kristi said.

Lakewood police have not found the truck and do not know who may have it. The insurance, the couple says, will only give them half the value of the truck, or about $15,000.

“I can’t take that money they’re going to give you and go somewhere and buy a truck like that. There’s no way,” Casey said.

Centura Health sent Denver7 the following statement regarding the theft:

Security at St. Anthony’s Hospital has been notified of this incident and is reviewing all video footage. St. Anthony works in conjunction with Lakewood Police in their investigations and provides uncovered evidence of crimes committed on hospital premises. Additionally, St. Anthony security teams have increased campus outreach and patrols to minimize crimes occurring on the property.

For now, Kristi and Casey have no choice but to go back and forth between the hotel and the hospital in the hope that their son’s condition improves and that their truck is found.

Ontario Provincial Police in Norfolk County are investigating a fatal crash involving a motorcycle and a pickup truck.

Emergency crews were called just before 7pm on Friday south of Brantford near Waterford.

Police said the motorcycle was traveling north on Cockshutt Road when it collided with a truck on Thompson Road East.

The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the truck had to be extracted from the vehicle by firefighters and is currently being treated for serious injuries.

“It was a very hectic situation,” said Sgt. Ed Sanchuk of the Ontario Provincial Police.

Police are investigating the cause of the crash and closed roads in the area for most of the night.

Tuesday evening, just 10 minutes from the area, another motorcyclist was killed in a collision.

“We see this regularly,” said Sgt. Sanchuk. “These collisions are entirely preventable.”

Robert McCready is a member of North of 42 Riders and says he rides the stretch of road every day.

“People don’t seem to be paying the attention they used to,” McCready said. “They always want to find a place where they want to be, whether it’s in a car or on a motorbike.

“I want to make sure I get home to my family. My kids.”

According to the Ontario Provincial Police, the intersection of Cockshutt and Thompson roads was once a two-way stop with a speed limit of 80 km/h. Last year it was upgraded to a four-way stop and downgraded to a 60 km/h speed limit.

Sanchuk asks drivers to be aware of their surroundings and drive at the appropriate speed to get to their destination safely.

A vehicle intentionally swerved into a motorcycle in an apparent road rage incident on Saturday, sending the motorcyclist to an area hospital and the driver of the vehicle to the Comal County Jail for assault, announcing the police.

David Ferguson, the city’s communications coordinator, said New Braunfels police were called to the 600 block of South Walnut Avenue around 8:13 p.m. Saturday.

“They were initially dispatched for an accident between a motorcycle and a Dodge Ram 2400 pickup truck,” Ferguson said, adding that both vehicles were traveling in the southbound lanes of the 100 block of South Walnut when the incident began. .

“The motorcycle driver claimed that the truck driver was driving erratically in front of him, with the truck producing thick clouds of diesel exhaust,” Ferguson said.

Ferguson said the preliminary investigation indicated that when the motorcyclist attempted to pass the truck, the other vehicle swerved into its lane, causing the collision.

“All of the above was listed in the original investigation,” Ferguson said. “The motorcycle driver sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center. The truck driver was taken into custody and incarcerated in the Comal County Jail.

Kentyn Roger Carley, 18, of New Braunfels, has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He was released from county jail on Sunday after posting $20,000 bond.

No information was available Monday on the condition of the motorcyclist, a 19-year-old man from Cuero, who has not been charged in Saturday’s incident.

Arrested pair suspected of distribution

New Braunfels police arrested two men who allegedly threw several bags of crystal meth out of a vehicle window during a traffic stop early Monday.

Ferguson said officers stopped an SUV in the 100 block of Merriweather Street around 3:42 a.m. Monday.

“The officer noticed traffic violations committed by a black Chevy Trail Blazer, which was pulled over at this location,” Ferguson said. “The vehicle came to a stop and the officers made contact with the two occupants; they saw one of them throw a bag out the passenger side window which was later determined to contain methamphetamine.

Ferguson said the amount of drugs in the bag thrown from the vehicle, and others found individually wrapped inside the SUV, totaled about 30 grams of methamphetamine.

Miguel Francisco Valenzuela, 36, and Matthew Martin Sanchez, 25, both of New Braunfels, were arrested and charged with manufacturing and delivering a controlled substance, Sanctions Group 1, between 4 and 400 grams.

Valenzuela was released from county jail on Tuesday after posting $50,000 bond. Sanchez remained jailed pending the same bond early Tuesday afternoon.

On Saturday, a mob set fire to a dump truck following the murder of two young men on motorbikes in the city’s Central District.

The crash happened near Saleem Centre, UP Morr, within the confines of New Karachi Police Station, where the dump truck hit and ran over two young men heading towards Nagan Chowrangi on a motorbike.

The truck driver fled after the accident leaving the vehicle behind after which a large number of people who had gathered at the scene set fire to the truck in protest at the accident.

The burning truck caused a massive traffic jam on the road from Powerhouse Chowrangi to Nagan Chowrangi. The fire department was also notified of the incident, which sent a firefighter to the road and saved the truck from being completely burnt out.

Police and paramedics transported the bodies to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital for forensic formalities. Later, the bodies were transferred to a morgue.

The victims who appeared to be between 22 and 24 years old have not yet been identified.

The police have registered a case and are looking for the driver.

In another road accident, a 40-year-old man, Shafiq, son of Faiz Ali, was killed after a fast vehicle hit him on the Lyari highway near Jahanabad in the Pak Colony region.

The body was rushed to Karachi Civil Hospital. Police said the deceased man resided in the same area and further investigations are ongoing.
