I’ve noticed them in Kingston too.”I was really shocked by it, it’s obviously encouraging teens to have underage sex and it’s wrong.”I used to go to under 18’s nights and they definitely weren’t advertised like that, I just can’t believe it.”The term ‘pop ya cherry’ in particular obviously implies that if you’re a virgin you should go there to have sex.”I’ve got a nephew who is 8 and nieces around the same age and I would hate having to explain to them what that means.”There are loads of school kids who get off at that bus stop so they’re obviously deliberately targeting them.”The manager of Bisoux Lounge Jay Sexton said: “The event is nothing to do with the Bisoux Lounge.”A promoter asked if they could do a under 18s event there. Which hasn’t 100% been confirmed.”So if bad press is released my solicitor will be contacting you as this event hasn’t been advertised on any of our social media, website or newsletters.”You can’t go by some random person putting up a poster up. If we had advertised then I understand what your saying but this has nothing to do with our venue.”Pop Ya Cherry have also been approached for comment.

Video shows air crash victim on the runway before she was hit

first_imgA VIDEO FROM the helmet camera of a firefighter responding to the crash landing of an Asiana Airlines flight in San Francisco shows at least one rescuer was aware someone was on the ground outside the aircraft and even warned a colleague.Yet two fire trucks subsequently ran over an injured passenger.The video, first aired by CBS News on Tuesday, shows the girl, 16-year-old Ye Meng Yuan, lying in the grass before she was struck, according to an attorney for her family. A coroner concluded she was alive at the time and died when she was later hit by a fire truck.In the video, a firefighter with a helmet camera tells the driver of a fire truck that there’s a person in front of him. A fire truck-mounted camera shows a firefighter directing the truck away from the person.What’s not clear from the video is why rescuers didn’t try to move or clearly mark the presence of the person on the ground during the chaotic aftermath of the 6 July crash at San Francisco International Airport.(AssociatedPress/YouTube)The video, which was released to The Associated Press yesterday by attorneys for the girl’s family, reflected much of what officials have said, only with more detail.About 15 minutes after the driver of the fire truck was alerted to the girl’s presence, the video shows that same truck running over her, according to CBS. Footage of her being run over was not aired in the CBS News broadcast.The helmet camera shows another truck driving over her minutes after that, according to CBS News, which said it obtained the video from a person close to Yuan’s family.The San Francisco Chronicle first reported on the video’s content, but did not release the video publicly.It’s still unknown how Yuan got out of the plane.“At least five firefighters knew of her presence before she was covered in foam. Nobody examined her, nobody touched her, nobody protected her, moved her or did anything to take her out of harm’s way, and then they abandoned her there,” said Anthony Tarricone, an attorney for Yuan’s family, which has filed a legal claim against the City of San Francisco.San Francisco fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said on  she could not comment on the video because of the pending litigation.In all, 304 of the 307 people aboard the Asiana flight survived after the airliner slammed into a seawall at the end of a runway during final approach for landing.Read: Asiana chief defends ‘experienced’ pilots as investigators question themRead: Passenger survives plane crash while capturing it on cameralast_img read more
