New husband killed in work accident
Man crushed days after starting job
He was trying to bring wife here
By Alejandro BUSTOS, Staff Reporter
A newly married man, who was helping his wife immigrate to Canada from India, died yesterday after being crushed in an industrial accident in Scarborough.
The victim, identified by sources as Salim SIDAT, 30, was killed after being caught around 8: 15 a.m. in a clothes pressing machine at Rio Textiles Exporters Ltd., at 1840 Ellesmere Rd. near Bellamy Rd.
"He just started last week on the job," said Mohamed PATEL, a friend of SIDAT.
"Just last night (Tuesday) I thought to myself that I should call him so I could talk with him," PATEL said. "Now it's too late."
Stunned Friends gathered at the business after hearing the news.
One man, who was so distraught he couldn't speak, could only mumble the name " SIDAT" when asked to describe his friend. His eyes then began to tear up before he left to compose himself.
Others said they were too devastated to talk.
Toronto police determined SIDAT's death was the result of a mishap after they spent the morning at the site.
The Ministry of Labour has issued a stop work order against Rio Textiles while it investigates, spokesperson Belinda SUTTON said.
She could not provide more information about the accident because it's still being probed.
A person who answered the telephone at Rio Textiles said the company had no comment.
PATEL's Friends reported that the native of India went to an immigration lawyer on Tuesday so he could sponsor his wife who is still there.
The couple were married about two months ago, they added.
SIDAT's cousin is the only relative he had in Canada, PATEL said.
PATEL reported that he spoke to SIDAT's brother in England and the sibling is making plans to come to Canada for the funeral.

son hides as mother of 3 slain
Female suspect seen fleeing after stabbing
By Alejandro BUSTOS and Jim RANKIN, Staff Reporters
In the stale midday heat, a woman stepped from a townhouse on Dorney Ct. and broke into a run. She urged the three young children with her to do the same, yelling at them to keep up. Inside, another woman -- a best friend, say neighbours -- was in the process of bleeding out from a stab wound to the chest.
That is how Toronto's 29th homicide of 2005 began yesterday.
Following a search of a nearby home, led by the Emergency Task Force, police last night were still piecing together what happened, and weren't ready to name a suspect in the killing of a single mother with three children, whom neighbours identified as Susan CAMPBELL.
At least one of the slain woman's children, a young boy, was home at the time of the stabbing, said neighbours in the townhouse complex near Lawrence Ave. W. and Allen Rd.
The boy was hiding upstairs when the first two officers arrived on the scene, said Nicola, a neighbour who donned a pair of gloves and tried to help police stop the flow of blood from a wound 4 centimetres wide in the middle of CAMPBELL's chest.
"The boy told police who did it," said Nicola, who did not give her last name.
The two women were close, neighbours said.
"They were best Friends," said Veniece MORGAN, who lives next door to CAMPBELL. " They were together all the time." Neighbours said both women had three children and the children often played together.
CAMPBELL, in her early 30s, also had knife wounds on an arm, and was struggling to get up as Nicola and the police tried to control the bleeding. She was also talking. "Give me some water. I need to get up," Nicola recalled her saying.
There were also signs of a struggle, splatters of blood in the kitchen and smears on the wall, she said. "She bled out a lot," Nicola said. "You could tell that she was struggling."
Another next-door neighbour, who arrived before Nicola, said she could hear her "neighbour fighting with someone."
"They were cussing each other," said the neighbour, who didn't want to be named. "And I heard the walls banging and then heard someone fall down the stairs."
She then saw a second woman with three young kids -- two girls and one boy -- run out of the victim's home. At this point, the neighbour went outside and peered into the home through the open front door. "I saw blood on the walls and I saw her lying on the floor and she was screaming for help," she said.
A young boy who was with the woman running away from the townhouse asked to use a neighbour's phone but was told to keep on running, said Tina, another neighbour, who did not want her last name published.
Another resident of Dorney Ct. said she saw a woman with three young kids flee the area.
"They (the children) couldn't catch up with her because they were slow," said the resident, who also did not want to give her name.
"The little boy was saying, 'Mommy,' and he was crying."
CAMPBELL was rushed to hospital but later died.
Homicide Det. Stephen RYAN arrived at the scene last night and could only confirm that there had been a death.

Action urged in heat death
By Alejandro BUSTOS, Staff Reporter
Poverty, brutal summer heat and a lack of city regulations killed a man last week, activists say. Richard HOWELL, who lived in a boarding house in the west end, "died of heat-related" causes, the Toronto Disaster Relief Committee said yesterday.
Social advocates held a news conference to demand a coroner's inquest.
An inquest would "discover how it is possible that a man can live in government-supported housing, paid for with his government disability cheque... and still die for the price of an air conditioner," said Bob ROSE, project co-ordinator for the Parkdale Activity Recreation Centre, where HOWELL used to go.
On June 29, the day HOWELL died, humidity made the temperature feel like 37°C, according to Environment Canada.
Dr. James EDWARDS, supervisor coroner for Toronto east, told the Star last week that the death of a man on June 29 "was probably related to the heat, although we can't say that definitively at this stage in our investigation." But he said he couldn't comment on any specific death when asked about HOWELL. Activists also called on the city to introduce a bylaw that would control temperatures in residential dwellings during the summer.
Councillor Mike FELDMAN (Ward 10, York Centre) said that while this bylaw may seem like a good idea, it is not feasible to refit buildings, many of them older than 50 years, with air conditioning.
"I'm trying to be realistic," the city's deputy mayor said. "Yeah, it's a nice idea. But is it economically possible? I've got a list of 70,000 people who are just waiting for social housing," he said.

Drive-by shooting narrowly missed kids
Children aged 3 to 15 had just moved from attack site
2nd unidentified man wounded in west-end area
By Alejandro BUSTOS, Staff Reporter
A large group of children barely escaped being hit by gunfire as a young man was gunned down near the home of close relatives in west Toronto.
Shamari BELNAVIS, 20, was killed Tuesday evening after being shot in a townhouse complex on Humber Blvd., near Weston Rd. and Black Creek Dr. A second unidentified man, 19, was wounded and released from hospital, police said.
Neighbours said yesterday the shooting could have been much worse. Roughly two dozen children were playing British bulldog in the area, before moving to a neighbour's house to practise for Caribana moments before the attack.
"If they hadn't moved, at least six of them would have been shot," said Natasha RUDDOCK, 15, who was with the group of youngsters aged 3 to 15.
BELNAVIS' half-sister Shenika SIMMS, 16, said she and her mother had just moved into the Humber Blvd. home June 1, but would now likely move.
BELNAVIS was the father of a boy, 2, and girl, 3 1/2; his current girlfriend was pregnant with a third child. He grew up in the Jane-Finch area but was not living in Toronto.
Neighbours yesterday said early Tuesday evening a vehicle pulled into the parking lot behind SIMMS' home. Two men jumped out and started to run down a short path into the townhouse complex. A third man stayed in the driver's seat.
When the men started to shoot at BELNAVIS, said residents, he lifted 4-year-old Jaden JAMES, the half-brother of SIMMS, behind the fence to protect him.
SIMMS said BELNAVIS had just been telling her "You are my little sister and you have to grow up like a princess."
The last words he said to her were, "Before I die, I want you to become a celebrity."
Moments later, SIMMS walked into her home and heard gunshots.
Police, who responded to the call around 8: 30 p.m., said they are looking for three suspects in their late teens or early 20s who were driving an older-model, maroon Dodge Caravan.
The shooting was not an accident, said police.
One neighbour said her daughter, who was in the group of children, was traumatized.
"My daughter told me, 'Mommy, I don't want you to go outside, because I don't want you to be shot,'" she said.
