Mom of two dies after suddenly getting sick on flight to US from Dominican Republic

A central Indiana mother of two died after falling ill on a U.S.-bound flight from the Dominican Republic on Wednesday, according to reports. 

The woman, 41, was on American Airlines Flight 2790 from Punta Cana to Charlotte, North Carolina when her health took a sudden turn, police said. 

She was given CPR on the plane and then the aircraft was diverted to the Turks and Caicos Islands, a British Overseas Territory located in the southeast of the Bahamas, local police said.

Medics and police were dispatched to the aircraft and the woman was transported to a local hospital where she was later pronounced dead, according to a Facebook post by the Royal Turks and Caicos Island Police Force.

Officials said a post-mortem would be conducted to ascertain the cause of death.

American Airlines confirmed to Fox News Digital that the flight was diverted to Providenciales International Airport (PLS) and that the woman was taken to hospital. The airline said that the flight continued its journey to Charlotte the following day.

“We are in disbelief and our hearts are broken,” wrote Stephanie Quinn in response to the police statement.

Quinn described her sister-in-law as the only girl out of five siblings and the mother of two “beautiful children with big hearts and straight As.”

It is not clear if the 41-year-old had been flying with her children or other family members when she fell ill.

‘Baywatch’ star defends bikini pics, says she ‘won’t be bullied’ by online trolls

Donna D’Errico won’t back down from internet trolls.

The “Baywatch” beauty was recently targeted by a group of “hater women” online who reported harmless bikini photos to Instagram.

D’Errico, a top OnlyFans model, refused to allow the abuse, and despite a few photos being pulled from her account after they were reported, she reposted the snaps for her nearly 3 million Instagram followers and faced being shadowbanned by the platform.

“I can’t allow that to happen,” Donna exclusively told Fox News Digital. “I want them to see that I won’t be bullied.”

‘BAYWATCH’ STAR DONNA D’ERRICO REVEALS TOP ONLYFANS REQUEST: ULTIMATE ‘GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE’

D’Errico admitted her plight against online critics is “an ongoing battle.” She regularly posts fun and flirty bikini pics and videos on her profile but was flagged numerous times for violating community guidelines.

Before she knew it, content had been removed from her page, including a behind-the-scenes video from a photo shoot where Donna posed in a hallway wearing a tight black dress with cutouts across her waist and bright red heels. 

She reposted the video with a lengthy caption. 

“It’s not nice to go on peoples accounts reporting perfectly fine photos and videos to cause their account to get flagged and posts to get removed,” she wrote. “Feeling bad about yourself doesn’t make it okay to try to bring down someone else to make you feel better about yourself. I’m putting this right back up. Nothing wrong with this video. Some people hate seeing others shine. Sending out positive vibes to you all, even the ones who did that.” 

‘BAYWATCH’ STAR DONNA D’ERRICO ON ONLYFANS AND FAITH: ‘I’M NOT DOING PORN’

Donna then shared on her Instagram stories, “I’m shadow banned again because a group of hater women report everything I post. Fully clothed photos and videos I’m forced to remove when IG is filled with full on nudity.

“The bullying and hate and jealousy on here is out of control. That’s why I like the site I’m on in my bio. No hate, no bullying, no jealousy. This is so dumb!”

Meta is investigating the removed content, Fox News Digital confirmed.

When asked why she believed her images were flagged, D’Errico chalked up the bad behavior to people who feel like they “need to tear others down” to “feel better about themselves.”

“I know that a lot of people are like that, especially on social media, because they can sort of hide behind their account and be anonymous,” she said. “Then they sit back and watch the fallout of what they’ve done, and it pleases them because they see someone else being taken down that maybe they have some jealousy of. I don’t really know exactly.”

D’Errico noticed that women are more often critical of her content, something she’s struggled with for years as she’s propelled her image online.

“I’m constantly blocking and deleting really, really cruel and mean comments that only women seem to make,” Donna said. “Honestly, I have to laugh about it because the alternative is being offended or hurt or feeling bad about myself … and I don’t allow that.”

D’Errico, who starred as lifeguard Donna Marco on “Baywatch,” admitted she would be “wounded for a week when someone said something evil” to her.

“My self-confidence would plummet. In the entertainment industry, you’ve got to have confidence or at least be able to be confident,” D’Errico said. “That’s very hard to do when you’re internalizing things that are being said to you that are ugly.”

By reposting the photos users deemed unacceptable, D’Errico believes she’s fighting back against her haters and taking control of her own image.

“I won’t allow them to do that to me. I won’t stand for it, and I’m not going to be suppressed,” she emphasized, “Standing in your power isn’t standing in your ego.”

D’Errico has been more confident than ever thanks to the success of her OnlyFans page, where she shares content with adult subscribers.

She credited OnlyFans as “one of the best things I’ve done” in a previous interview with Fox News Digital. D’Errico said engaging with her fans on the site makes her feel “feminine and beautiful and sexy. The money is another aspect that, it’s just way more than I anticipated that it would be.

“Where else could I get this kind of, you know, this kind of non-judgmental, non-bullying, having fun, feeling sexy, feeling pretty, being told that I’m pretty, being told you look so great all the time. … It’s like a dream. Why would I not do it? I wish I’d done it years ago, honestly.”

When she initially joined the site more than a year ago, D’Errico received numerous requests for feet photos. 

“I don’t really get that anymore. Now, they mostly want to see me, like in everyday life, just the real me and everyday life,” the former Playboy Playmate said. “Maybe wearing a T-shirt, making coffee or, you know, just that kind of thing. That’s the biggest request.

“I’m like, ‘Well, I don’t have any makeup on and my hair is in a ponytail, and I’m kind of in sweats,'” she said. “‘I don’t care. I want to see that.’ So, they like that because I think it gives them kind of that what I call ‘the girlfriend experience.’ It may be.

“I think I call it the girlfriend experience because I think they get the same thing out of it that I do. They get to log in and have fun kind of having an experience that they would have if they had a girlfriend. But then they log off, and then they’re gone. There’s nobody to check in with.”

8-year-old’s national anthem at NBA game makes big social media splash

A social media video of a young girl’s performance of the national anthem prior to the tipoff of a recent Indiana Pacers game continues to draw millions of views.  

Kinsley Murray stood at center court inside the Pacers’ home arena Feb. 26 wearing a patriotic dress and white gloves and delivered her rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

The Pacers posted a video of her pregame performance on the team’s TikTok account, and the video had gotten more than 23 million views and 2.2 million likes as of Friday evening.

“The passion. the outfit. this anthem performance was unmatched.” the Pacers captioned the post. Murray has performed the national anthem at hundreds of sporting events over the years.

She also performed “O Canada” before singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” Monday.

A social media user identifying himself as a school teacher and Kinsley’s father, Shafer Murray, said she performed at a Washington Huskies basketball game in early 2022.

In 2021, Kinsley gained attention for her national anthem performance before the start of a Gonzaga women’s basketball game.

“I love to honor our country,” Kinsley, who was 6 years old at the time, told KREM-TV. “The louder the roar, the better I get.”

The social media reaction to Kinsely’s latest performance varied widely. Some offered their applause, while others voiced criticism.

Some defended the young performer and pushed back against comments some viewed as negative.

“I watched that video and seeing all of the disgusting comments, all the hatred, all the bully comments to that girl is absolutely atrocious,” TikTok user Midnight Michaelson wrote. “I would like to see everybody come on here now and tell you how sorry I am and how apologetic you are for attacking this little girl.”

Business owners torn over California exodus share ‘how bad’ things really are

California’s businesses share the same “headache,” being personally torn between closing their doors or moving to other states over high crime and taxes.

“I have considered moving to a different state,” Flavio Carvalho, an attorney and law firm founder in the San Francisco Bay area, told Fox News Digital. “I don’t agree with the direction California is going, and I hate the fact that I am forced to support it through my taxes.”

“We have wanted to move for at least the last three to four years,” Bulletproof Pet Products CEO and CFO Cherie Falwell also said. “Especially since Biden has been president. Things were already expensive here. Now they are so expensive we can hardly afford to do business. However, moving is expensive, and with interest rates on homes, it is difficult to move.” 

“We are L.A., California natives, and have never lived or worked anywhere else,” Trish Aquino, who owns a digital marketing business with her husband Brandon, weighed in. “It was our financial strife, prospecting struggles and concern for our children’s futures that made us finally consider a move to Frisco, Texas.”

RESTAURANT OWNERS WARN NEW CALIFORNIA LAW WILL MAKE MENU PRICES SKYROCKET: ‘CRIPPLING TO EVERYBODY’

More than 86% of business owners in California say that crime has increased in their area, while 67% from the same survey claimed to be considering moving their headquarters out of the Golden State, according to the latest numbers from RedBalloon and PublicSq.’s Freedom Economy Index.

The national survey includes 80,000 business owners, with 10% of those respondents being based in California, RedBalloon CEO Andrew Crapuchettes noted.

“Employers we’ve been talking to have been planning a move or thinking about a move since 2020,” Crapuchettes told Digital. “And what’s happening is, in the last couple of years, every time Gavin Newsom does a new stupid thing, it makes it a lot easier for them to make that decision.”

“[It’s a] headache,” the CEO continued. “They are dealing with regulation, they’re dealing with taxes, they’re dealing with crime… They’re still generating economic activity, but this invisible groundswell of businesses [are] planning on leaving the state, and that’s because of those bad policies.”

Top reasons employers in the survey want to leave California include high tax rates, anti-business policies, “woke” public school systems and high crime rates.

All three owners — Carvalho, Falwell and Aquino — claimed crime has increased in their respective neighborhoods.

“The building where I have my office has just installed floodlights throughout the parking lot, installed new doors and upgraded the security system to improve safety,” Carvalho detailed. “Throughout the neighborhood, there are signs reminding people not to leave valuables in their cars.”

“It used to be this very nice town, now it is just horrible,” Falwell said. “We have been in our home for 17 years, we have had mail theft. The crime has impacted my desire to even leave my house or business.”

“We are blessed to work from home, so we have no additional property to worry about and protect. That being said, I don’t feel safe walking my kids around the block,” Aquino expanded. “I’ve witnessed a hit-and-run of a parked car right in front of my house, midday high-speed chases on our street, a freeway exit beggar [getting] into a van and a person shooting up in front of a commercial trash can.”

“My car was hit while parked at my previous job, we’ve had shredded refuse stolen out of our recycling bin,” the marketing firm owner added. “There was a shooting at our mall late last year, and we hear search copters overhead every other week… You don’t realize how bad things are until you’re asked to recollect and actually list it out.”

Although California has one of the highest tax burdens in America, RedBalloon’s CEO and some of the employers recognize the emotional difficulty in leaving their longtime home.

“[In] hotel California, you can check out any time, but you can’t leave. It’s hard to get your business to move somewhere, and particularly for conservatives… We try and make things better where we are,” Crapuchettes said. “It takes a lot to make a conservative leave where they grow up, leave where they have their business established. And so this is kind of a big deal that these businesses are moving.”

“I had my first job when I was 13 years old, working for a car upholstery shop. In high school, I worked the fields of Harrison Farm in the San Joaquin Valley… I love my state and my country, and I think I am somehow supposed to fight for its future. So I have not left California yet,” Carvalho said.

After troubles with touring homes and finding a new church, the Aquino family ultimately decided not to move to Frisco.

“These were just a couple of the factors that made it abundantly clear to us that God was slamming this door in our face… I hope that we will have the Godly wisdom to accurately discern how to ensure that our business thrives versus just survives,” Aquino explained. 

Texas, Florida and Nevada stand as the top state choices where the three entrepreneurs would consider moving their businesses and families.

“The business environment is a lot friendlier. There’s plenty of talent in those states. The taxes are way better,” Crapuchettes pointed out. “We saw Elon Musk head to Texas, PublicSq. move their headquarters from Southern California to Florida. And we’ve talked to lots and lots of other businesses that are doing the same thing.”

Attorney Carvalho shared a similar opinion.

“Florida appeals to me because of the policies of Gov. [Ron] DeSantis, the warm weather, and the ease of travel to Europe, the Caribbean or South America,” he said.

“We would love to move our home and our business to Nevada,” Falwell said. “We have considered other states like Texas, Florida and Tennessee. The reason for those states, especially Nevada, is because the taxes and cost of living are cheaper. [The] minimum wage here is horrible.”

Reflecting on the inevitable economic impact of the California business exodus, Crapuchettes warned of “dramatic impacts on the state, on their economy, on their budget. That’s what I think is the interesting story, is [that] a lot of this activity hasn’t happened yet, isn’t caught in the economic data, but it’s coming and it will have huge impacts.”

Former Border Patrol chief says Biden White House punished him for ‘feedback’

The former chief of the United States Border Patrol made a bombshell claim Thursday that he was essentially punished for offering “feedback” to the Biden administration that was critical of how it was operating its border control responsibilities.

Former USBP Chief Rodney Scott observed live coverage of President Biden meeting with current USBP Chief Jason Owens and Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector Chief Gloria Chavez near Brownsville, Texas, and described it as a “photo-op” for the president to appear engaged against the migrant crisis.

“[I]t’s for the cameras… I hate to get political, but I believe the reason that the Biden administration is down there is if he got that briefing in the White House, there’d be no cameras. There’d be no show,” Scott said on “The Story.”

“But they know what it takes to secure the border.  We handed them the most secure border in the history of the United States and and a roadmap to keep it that way and make it even better, [yet] through 94 executive actions, President Biden completely destroyed border security.”

EX-ICE CHIEF SCOFFS AT HOCHUL’S SUDDEN OUTRAGE OVER VIOLENT MIGRANTS: ‘POLITICAL COVER’

Scott added that, despite claims by the administration and some in Congress that Biden needs new legislation on his desk to secure the border, he has within his executive authority the ability to undo his Trump-era policy reversals.

The former chief added he hopes Biden will listen substantively to any advice given by Border Patrol officials or rank-and-file. However, he claimed his offer of advice led to his early retirement.

“I hope [agents are] free to speak openly. But I can tell you from my experience in the Biden administration, that was not the norm. If they speak freely, they’ll probably be out of a job,” said Scott, who became chief in 2021 under Trump and departed the agency during Biden’s tenure.

Anchor Martha MacCallum asked Scott if he experienced that outcome when he spoke out.

“That is exactly what happened to me,” Scott claimed. “I was following orders to a certain extent. But I gave feedback, and I told them where I thought things were going to go wrong – And they did not listen to any of the advice we gave them whatsoever.”

Scott said he was eventually “reassigned” but chose to retire from the agency and speak out publicly about the border crisis without fear of such alleged retribution.

COMMUNITY LEADER SAYS BOSTON ‘PASSING THE BUCK’ AS MIGRANTS RELOCATED TO REC CENTER

Scott later claimed the Mexican government has shown the ability to stem the migrant crisis somewhat when it also enforces its own established laws, telling Fox News there is “less criminality” seen when the Obrador administration does so.

The Mexican government, however, has also signaled they hope for Biden to be re-elected, versus having to engage with Trump again, Scott further claimed. That dynamic is the reason behind any current extra border security enforcement by Mexico.

However, the former USBP chief said that situation further accentuates why the American administration should be the one acting effectively to secure its own border, instead of “exporting our national security” to Mexico City.

“Border patrol should be empowered to arrest people crossing the border, and we should hold them in custody or outside the country in other cases adjudicated. It’s common sense,” he said.

“Right now we’re relying on another country to slow down the flow. But guess what else that means? … Mexico and the cartels to pick and choose who enters this country instead of [Biden]…” 

Scott also appeared to note the reported distinction between migrant-crossing figures at Brownsville – where Biden visited – and Eagle Pass – where Trump visited.

“They don’t want big groups of illegal aliens in the background. They wanted to go to someplace slower,” he said, claiming there is also an “unseen aspect” in that city due to the presence of NGO’s that operate to facilitate migrant shelter and transportation services.

“One of the problems with the Senate bill that no one’s talking about is it had $1.4 billion more for those NGOs,” he said.

In remarks at Eagle Pass, Texas, Trump suggested border agents are engaged in “a war” at the Mexican boundary, while the chief of the agency’s union said his agents are “mad as Hell” that Biden visited Brownsville, where he said there has been a trickle of migrants compared to the deluges being seen in Eagle Pass or farther west in California.

“This is a ‘Joe Biden invasion’,” Trump added after National Border Patrol Council Brandon Judd spoke.

Fox News Digital reached out to both the White House and U.S. Customs & Border Protection but did not receive a response from either by press time.

SEE IT: ‘Distracted’ driver careens off the road, plummets 200 feet and lives

An Oregon State Police trooper was in the right place at the right time when a car went flying off an embankment, landing 200 feet below.

The agency posted dashcam video of the Feb. 25 crash on Highway 224 near Southeast Tong Road in Clackamas County on Facebook, and said it was caused by the car operator’s “distracted driving.”

The dramatic four-second video taken from a trooper’s patrol car shows a vehicle approaching from the opposite direction prior to driving into the dirt on the side of the road and launching into the air, falling below. 

“The vehicle drove off the roadway after the driver took their eyes off the roadway and landed approximately 200 feet down an embankment,” OSP said in the social media post. Police did not say exactly what the driver was doing before the car went airborne off the cliff.

The unidentified driver was able to get out of the car before emergency personnel arrived at the scene and deployed a rope system to carry the driver up the hill to safety.

The driver, who police say “is fortunate to have survived,” was taken by ambulance to a local hospital for treatment of injuries.

NBA star once saved teammate by boat after anti-Israel protesters shut down bridge

Klay Thompson and Draymond Green have been teammates for a decade. They have nine NBA All-Star selections between them, and both have been crucial pieces of the Golden State Warriors‘ championship core.

Last November, Green made his unexpected debut on Thompson’s boat. During a recent appearance on the “7PM in Brooklyn with Carmelo Anthony and The Kid Mero” podcast, Green detailed his first visit to it. Green noted that the vessel was a key part of a rescue mission. 

Green was trapped on the San Francisco–Oakland Bay in mid-November when demonstrators forced the closure of the Bay Bridge, which frequently carries some of the heaviest amounts of vehicle traffic in the region.

At the time, Green had recently returned to the Oakland area following his five-game suspension for his role in a physical altercation with Minnesota Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert.

WARRIORS STAR ANDREW WIGGINS OUT INDEFINITELY DUE TO ‘PERSONAL MATTER,’ COACH STEVE KERR SAYS

Green was attempting to travel to the Warriors’ practice facility, but the bridge was shut down due to pro-Palestinian protests in the area. 

“There was a protest on the Bay Bridge,” Green mentioned.

After a few ideas to make it across the bridge proved unsuccessful, Thompson arrived on the scene with his boat, Green said.

“Klay came on his boat across the water to pick me up in Jack London Square in Oakland,” Green explained as the hosts began to laugh. “[VP of team operations] Eric Housen tried to get the cops to like escort me through. Nothing could work, you could not get across.”

Green added that the whole ordeal whadbeen captured on video. Notably, Thompson was believed to have owned the boat for around four years prior to Green climbing aboard for the first time on that fateful day.

Although Green and Thompson have developed and maintained an impressive chemistry on the court, the boat story seems to speak to the apparent limited amount of time they spend together outside of basketball.

Chocolate recalled over fears of potentially ‘life-threatening’ allergen contamination

A Pennsylvania-based company recalled a chocolate bar over allergic reaction concerns, the Food and Drug Administration announced Wednesday. 

Electric City Sweets from Scranton, Pennsylvania, recalled 1,644 Red Velvet Milk Chocolate Bars “due to undeclared milk in the ingredient statement and allergen statement,” according to the FDA press release. 

Individuals with milk allergies or sensitivities run the risk of experiencing an allergic reaction, which could lead to potentially life-threatening anaphylaxis. No illnesses had been reported as of Wednesday, according to the statement released. 

VALENTINE’S DAY CHOCOLATES SET TO BREAK HEARTS AFTER COCOA PRICES HIT RECORD HIGH

The recall started after a consumer reported the issue to the retailer where they initially purchased the chocolate. 

“The milk-containing product was distributed in packaging identified with the allergen on the front panel display however it did not reveal the presence of milk in the ingredient list as required,” the statement read.

CHEMICAL FOUND IN CHEERIOS, QUAKER OATS, OTHER OAT-BASED FOODS LINKED TO POTENTIAL HEALTH ISSUES: STUDY

Only two specific lots were impacted by the recall. The chocolate was available via online ordering off of the Electric City Sweets website as well as Wholesale accounts that serviced cities in Pennsylvania, Florida, California and North Carolina. 

Fox News Digital reached out to Electric City Sweets for additional comment. 

Chocolate prices soared to an all-time high last month, with ongoing shortages putting a squeeze on chocolate manufacturers and consumers. The price of cocoa has been on the rise due to crop damage in West Africa.

A Reuters cocoa poll in early February forecast a global deficit of 375,000 tons in the 2023/24 season, more than double that indicated in the previous poll in August, and marking a third successive deficit for the market.

Musk reinstates ‘misgendering’ rules a year after he ended policy on X

After Elon Musk acquired the Twitter platform in response to a satire outlet being banned for misgendering, he has since defended reinstating a version of rules against such conduct. 

Musk famously purchased the Twitter platform after it had suspended the Babylon Bee, a Christian satire outlet for tweeting a headline naming the U.S. Assistant Secretary for Health Dr. Rachel Levine, who identifies as transgender, as 2022’s “Man of the Year.”

But after having rebranded the platform as X, Musk appears to have replaced certain guidelines against misgendering or using the former names of transgender individuals. In an article headlined, “X quietly revived anti-misgendering policy that Musk dropped last year,” Ars Technica was reportedly among the first to note “X’s updated policy confirms that X will ‘reduce the visibility of posts that purposefully use different pronouns to address someone other than what that person uses for themselves, or that use a previous name that someone no longer goes by as part of their transition.’”

“Musk has since been called out on his platform by some of its most popular users,” the activist behind LibsOfTikTok, Chaya Raichik, wrote. “Apparently X might’ve reinstated their “misgendering” rule so I gotta test it out… Richard Levine is male. He is a man. Dylan Mulvaney is male. He is a man. Ellen Page is female. She is a woman. If I get suspended you can find me at @libsoftiktok.”

As of Saturday morning, that tweet and the account are still active. 

JK ROWLING FIRES BACK AT ACTIVISTS PUSHING FOR TRANS SEX OFFENDERS TO BE PUT IN WOMEN’S PRISONS

Musk responded to Raichik posting a screenshot of the platform’s “Use of Prior Names and Pronouns” policy by writing, “This is just about repeated, targeted harassment of a particular person.”

“Using the correct sex based pronouns for someone is ‘harassment’? We’re being forced to lie? What about harassment in general?” Raichik asked. “There are accounts who repeatedly target and harass specific individuals in an obsessive way. What constitutes ‘repeated’ and ‘targeted’ and why do only one group of people get this special treatment?”

In a tweet, Musk argued, “You’re not going to get suspended.”

Raichik replied, “Yeah just shadowbanned and less tweet visibility.”

Fox News Digital reached out to Twitter for comment. This article will be updated with any reply. 

Other prominent users called out Musk as well.

“‘Wokeness is a mind virus destroying our civilization…here’s how I’ll enforce it,'” conservative commentator Auron MacIntyre wrote, appearing to mock Musk. “Aren’t you going to have to hit @TheBabylonBee for this? Wasn’t that the whole point?”

“A man is a man. The truth is not harassment, unless someone wants to force others to lie,” conservative intellectual Christopher Rufo said.

“You speak a lot about the mind virus which has infected the West,” the activist known as Billboard Chris said. “Nothing represents that more than gender ideology where authoritarians expect us to lie to affirm a delusion that people are the opposite sex. Now we’re going to be penalized for telling the truth? It’s absurd and an infringement on free speech.”

‘But you know that calling a man ‘he,’ no matter how often it’s done, isn’t harassment. This just punishes people for telling the truth,” conservative commentator Allie Beth Stuckey wrote.
