#1 Plane crash: Two Irish men left with critical injuries after plane they were traveling in crashed in a public park in St. Petersburg, Florida. A third man and a woman who were also onboard the craft walked away from the crash with minor injuries. The Piper Cherokee narrowly missed an apartment building before it crashed down on the park. The cause of the accident is not yet known but fuel starvation has been suggested.

#2 Bus attack: 16-year-old teenager made appalling threats to two Bus Eireann workers during attack last August. The boy threatened to stab the two workers and rape their kids during a violent outburst at Bus Aras in Dublin that started when the driver of the bus told him that he was 90 cent short for the fare. Gardai had to be eventually called in to restrain the young man, who has 11 previous convictions for diverse offences. The judge said that the severity of the threats may warrant a custodial sentence.

#3 Sait Canbullu: A hoax claim made over the weekend to say that teenager Sait Canbullu had been kidnapped in Wexford town may result in the caller facing charges. It is believed a teenage girl knowingly made the hoax call, which cost the taxpayer about €100,000 in terms of police time, helicopter deployment, and a full alert being dispatched to ports and airports to watch out for the boy.

A blood stained hoe located nearby is believed to be the murder weapon.
