PERHAPS an eye check is in order?
Shoppers in China’s Guangxi
Province were left in a state of
shock this week, after a woman,
Ziang Zhen, drove down a
shopping centre staircase in her
bid to find a parking spot.
Ziang told media that she was
following signs to the shopping
centre carpark when the ground
below her car “plummeted and
became so bumpy”.
Milling shoppers were instantly
plunged into a state of panic, with
many running for their lives down
the stairs to avoid getting
squished by the vehicle.
Realising her predicament, Ziang
parked her car on the steps,
calling a local tow truck company
to winch it back to level ground.
The shopping centre has since
apologised for its poor signage.
CELLS get carpenter put in a cell.
Trouble began for carpenter
Jason Gaspard after he was called
to repair a door smashed in during
a robbery in East Sussex, UK.
During the course of the job
Gaspard cut himself on the glass,
leaving a bit of himself on the job
after he had finished his work.
Police inspecting the crime scene
then took a sample of the blood,
and believing it to be that of the
perpertrator promptly arrested
Gaspard and threw him in prison.
After an hour cooling his heels in
a cell police realised their mistake
and released him without charge.

A 99 year old US man, Leo Plass,
has finally completed his teaching
degree at the Eastern Oregon
University in La Grande, having
started it all of 81 years ago.

was just one semester short of
achieving his qualification in 1932
when the Great Depression
forced him to drop out of
university and take up a job with
a logging company.
He never gave up his teaching
dream however, re-enrolling at
university a few years ago, and
finally graduating this week.The above article was sent to subscribers in Pharmacy Daily's issue from 17 Jun 11 To see the full newsletter, see the embedded issue below or CLICK HERE to download Pharmacy Daily from 17 Jun 11
