A patient in need of a new heart successfully underwent surgery even after the helicopter carrying the organ crashed on the roof of the hospital.
A medical helicopter, AgustaWestland AW109 was reported being out of control before landing and overturned on the landing site above the Keck Hospital in Los Angeles.
All three helicopter passengers were reported safe without serious injuries. In the incident around 3.15 pm, the helicopter fan blade was believed to have hit a part of the hospital roof, causing debris to fall down before the plane overturned on the hospital roof.
Rescue teams managed to retrieve organs brought from San Diego using the helicopter and handed it over to hospital staff.
Even so, the medical officer who was believed to be carrying the organ had tripped, before falling on the floor with the ‘organ’.
However, the swift action of the staff at the location managed to save the organ and succeeded in the organ transfer mission to the recipient at the hospital within two hours after the accident.
One of the witnesses of the incident was reported to have said that he thought there was an earthquake when the helicopter overturned on the building.
“The building shook. I thought it was an earthquake, ”Javier Chamorro, 59, told local media.
People in the surrounding area also claimed to have seen debris from the top of the building fall down. No casualties were reported.
Food Review: COVID-19 Variant Getting Stronger, Try These 5 Foods To Boost Immune System
COVID-19 cases continue to rise, taking daily precautions such as washing your hands, social distancing, exercising, and getting enough sleep is key to lowering the risk of infection. COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization. Maintaining a healthy diet to help boost your immune system may also give you an edge.
Individuals with certain pre-existing illnesses like diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and respiratory issues are at a higher risk of having COVID-19 complications, it also aggravates with age as the general immunity reduces as you get older. It is important for your immune system to stay in tip-top shape. Try these 5 foods.
Yogurt is a great source of probiotics, which are good bacteria that can help promote a healthy gut and immune system. Recent studies have also found probiotics to be effective for fighting the common cold and influenza-like respiratory infections. Sarin recommends choosing plain yogurt rather than anything too flavored or sweetened and topping it with fruit and honey. Those on a dairy-free diet can still benefit from almond milk and coconut milk yogurt options.
Broccoli is also rich in vitamin C. Just half a cup contains 43% of your daily value of vitamin C. Broccoli is packed with phytochemicals and antioxidants that support our immune system. It also contains vitamin E, an antioxidant that can help fight off bacteria and viruses. To get the most out of this powerhouse vegetable, eat it raw or just slightly cooked.
Not only is garlic full of flavor, but it’s packed with health benefits such as lowering blood pressure and reducing the risk of heart disease. Garlic’s immunity-boosting abilities come from its heavy concentration of sulfur-containing compounds, which can help fight off some infections. Garlic has been shown in the past to help ward off the common cold. It is an easy vegetable to work into your diet. You can add to it anything from pasta sauce and salad dressings to soups and stir-fry dishes.
4) Red Bell Peppers
Red bell peppers reign supreme when it comes to fruits and vegetables high in vitamin C. One cup of chopped red bell peppers contains about 211% of your daily value of vitamin C. That is about twice more than an orange has. Vitamin C contributes to immune defense by supporting a variety of cell functions and can lower the risk of respiratory infections. It can also help the growth and repair of tissues in your body. Daily intake of vitamin C is essential for good health because our bodies do not produce it naturally.
While sun exposure is the best source of vitamin D, it can also be provided by some foods, including mushrooms. Mushrooms as a vitamin D source found that the ‘sunshine vitamin’ can help enhance the absorption of calcium, which is good for bone health and may also protect against some cancers and respiratory diseases. Mushrooms are great as a side dish or appetizer.

Tokyo Paralympics: Different Fates For Two National Swimmers Despite Missing Finals
TOKYO, Aug 27 — Two national swimmers suffered different fates despite failing in the qualifying stage on the third day of the Tokyo Paralympic Games today.
Despite finishing in last position in the second qualifying heat of the S5 women’s 50 mm butterfly (physical disabilities) category, Brenda Annellia Larry put on a commendable performance by improving on her personal best in the competition held at the Tokyo Aquatics Centre.
The 16-year-old Sabahan clocked 1 minute 00.62 second (s) to finish seventh.
The country’s youngest athlete to the Tokyo Paralympics previously had recorded a personal best of 1: 09.72s in Singapore in 2019.
Chinese swimmer Dong Lu won the heat in a time of 40.74s followed by her compatriot Jiao Cheng who did 43.05s while third place went to Brazilian swimmer Joana Maria da Silva Neves Euzebio (46.32s).
Brenda finished 13th out of 14 swimmers from the two qualifying heats with only the top eight making the cut for the final.
Meanwhile, another national swimmer, Jamery Siga, was clearly frustrated when his dream to at least renew his personal best in the men’s category of the same did not materialise after clocking 40.32s.
His previous best personal best was 38.28s done at the World Swimming Championships in London in 2019.
The 36-year-old Sarawakian admitted that a poor start in today’s competition resulted in him finishing in last place in the third qualifying heat.
Jamery, for whom this is his third Paralympic appearance, finished sixth in the heat while Tao Zheng from China topped the competition and also broke the world record with a time of 32.34s, followed by Yaroslav Semenenko of Ukraine with 34.55s while host swimmer Kaede Hinata took third place with a time of 37.8s.
Meanwhile, Jamery, who was stricken by polio at the age of five, which caused his right arm to shrink, also revealed that his campaign at the Tokyo Paralympics is probably his last given his advanced age if he wants to compete in Paris in 2024.
“I apologise to all Malaysians for not being able to do my best, maybe this is my last Paralympics, age is also catching up,” he told Bernama in a tearful voice.
However, he is still interested in continuing to represent the country and will return to focus on his next missions in tournaments as well as other sporting events, including the Asian Para Games in Hangzhou, China next year.
