Father jumps off cliff to his death while his wife and son were watching and filming (video)

A father vacationing with his family in Spain has died while performing a cliff-jumping stunt that went wrong.

 

The harrowing footage was captured from a nearby boat where the man’s wife and son were filming.

 

The video shows the 31-year-old Dutch tourist readying to make the 100-foot plunge in the Malgrats Islands on Thursday, May 12.

 

Unfortunately, he miscalculated and as he took the plunge off the cliff, he seemingly realized his leap wasn’t going to clear the sharp, jagged rocks below.

 

He let out a scream of terror before clipping the jagged rock and hitting the water.

 

“Oh my God!” the woman recording, said to be his wife, screams.

 

The report says authorities were called to the scene shortly after the accident, and they were able to locate the man’s body.

 

The man, his wife, and son had rented a boat for the day to tour the rocks on one of the Malgrats Isles by Santa Ponsa. The man reportedly hired the boat so his wife could film the stunt.

US To Roll Out New Vaccine Against Omicron BA.4, BA.5

The White House has said a new type of COVID-19 vaccine specially designed to protect against the Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 subvariants will be available next month.

If the shots meet FDA standards, they will likely be available in early to mid-September, White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha said on Tuesday.

The Biden administration is currently trying to “get out of the acute emergency phase” where the US government is buying the vaccines, treatments, and diagnostic tests.

“My hope is that in 2023, you’re going to see the commercialization of almost all of these products,” Jha said. “Some of that is actually going to begin this fall, in the days and weeks ahead,” he added.

Separately, first lady Dr. Jill Biden tested positive for COVID-19 and is experiencing mild symptoms, her spokesperson said Tuesday.

This was after President Joe Biden also tested positive for the COVID-19 and had to be isolated even as he has recovered.

Chebukati Accuses Cherera, Rebel IEBC Commissioners of Trying to Force Re-run

Chebukati Accuses Cherera, Rebel IEBC Commissioners of Trying to Force Re-run

Electoral commission chairman Wafula Chebukati has finally told his side of the story regarding his fallout with fellow IEBC commissioners who disowned the presidential election results.

In a statement Wednesday, Chebukati explained that the four rebel commissioners led by Vice Chair Juliana Cherera tried to have the results moderated to force a repeat election.

“During a briefing meeting held on 15th August 2022 at around 3.00 pm before the final declaration of the Presidential Election results, the four Commissioners demanded that the Chairperson moderates the results for purpose of forcing an election Re-run contrary to their oath of office,” Chebukati said.

Cherera, Francis Wanderi, Justus Nyang’aya and Irene Masit allegedly wanted Chebukati to declare that neither William Ruto nor Raila Odinga hit the 50 percent plus one vote required to secure a first-round win.

“This is tantamount to subverting the Constitution and the sovereign will of the people of Kenya. The Chairperson refused to yield to this unconstitutional and illegal demand and proceeded to declare the results of the Presidential Election as received from the polling stations, and contained in Form 34A, in accordance with the law,” Chebukati added.

The IEBC chair also mentioned that he involved all the commissioners, contrary to their claims that the vote tallying process was opaque.

“As the gazetted National Returning Officer and in the spirit of teamwork, the Chairperson involved all Commissioners including Juliana Cherera, Francis Wanderi, Justus Nyang’aya and Irene Masit in all activities of verification and tallying,” he said.

Their duties were well defined in writing and allocated at the National Tally Center (NTC). They had access to all results beforehand and interchangeably announced them for six (6) days in the full glare of live television.”

Chebukati also clarified that the declaration of presidential results is the sole responsibility of the Chairman of the Commission.

“This constitutional mandate falls squarely on the chairman of the commission, who is the National Returning Officer as gazetted in Notice No. 4956 of 28th April 2022. The role of national returning officer for presidential election is not a shared responsibility and not subject to plenary decisions of the commission. All returning officers including the national returning officer for presidential election took an individual oath of secrecy before embarking on their duties,” wrote Chebukati.

“In addition, the chairperson and commissioners took oath of office at the time of appointment. It is an oath of office that the chairperson faithfully executed, when he declared the results for the presidential election on Monday, 15th August 2022.”

Daniel Musyoka Murder: IEBC Official Received Phone Call Before He Went Missing

As investigations into the shocking death of Embakasi East Returning Officer Daniel Musyoka continue, it has emerged that the IEBC official received a phone call before he went missing on Thursday, August 11.

A detective privy to the probe intimated that officers were pursuing a mysterious caller who phoned Mr Musyoka while he was on official duty at the East Africa School of Aviation tallying centre in Embakasi East constituency.

“Currently, the phone records are part of the focus as this investigation goes on,” said the detective as quoted by the Nation.

“It will be important to know who is the person who made the call that saw the returning officer leave his work station never to be seen again until his body was found this week.”

Detectives have also reportedly established that a signal from Musyoka’s phone was last detected in Mihang’o, Utawala, Nairobi County, some 12.4 km from the tallying centre.

Meanwhile, UDA party politician Francis Mureithi, who lost to Babu Owino in the Embakasi East MP race, alleged that Musyoka was killed for refusing to engage in electoral malpractice.

The politician also claimed there are witnesses willing to testify but are scared for their lives.

“I demand that thorough investigations be carried out so that Mr. Daniel Musyoka’s family can get justice. I demand that the Witness Protection Program be applied in this case given that there are numerous potential witnesses willing to come forward but are scared,” Mureithi said.

Embakasi East MP-elect Paul Ongili alias Babu Owino on his part condemned the killing and called for a speedy probe.

“I am saddened by the death of former Embakasi East constituency IEBC Returning Officer Mr. Musyoka. I send my condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of the late Mr Musyoka. I urge the relevant authorities to conduct thorough investigations and bring the culprits to book,” Owino said on social media.
