Storm topples tree on woman
By Jennifer O'BRIEN and Kate DUBINSKI, Free Press Reporters, Fri., October 13, 2006
Filomena PALMEIRI shelters herself with a blanket from a howling snow squall yesterday. She was watching her son's football team from Mother Teresa high school battling the Saint Thomas Aquinas high school team at Aquinas's field in London. (Dave CHIDLEY, The London Free Press)
Yesterday's unexpected snowsqualls and wind gusts broke a large tree that fell on and seriously injured an elderly woman.
It was just one of many calls paramedics faced yesterday because of slick roads and weather-related injuries.
The elderly woman was walking along Central Avenue near Wellington Street when the tree fell.
"She sustained extensive internal injuries," said Middlesex-London Emergency Medical Services duty manager Chris DARBY.
"She was not trapped under the tree, but she was under a branch. Paramedics were able to immobilize her and treat her before transporting her" to hospital.
The woman was simply "in the wrong place at the wrong time," DARBY said.
Accidents occurred throughout the day, including one at Adelaide and Oxford streets, where a vehicle crashed into a former bank building, DARBY said.
The injuries in that crash were not serious.
A car crash southeast of London that claimed the life of a 27-year-old Langton woman also was blamed on slick and snow-covered roads.
Norfolk County Ontario Provincial Police said the driver of a minivan that slid into oncoming traffic on Concession Road 2 in the former Houghton Township near Tillsonburg died from her injuries.
Jaclyn SZALKAI, 27, of Langton, was pronounced dead in a Tillsonburg hospital after the 2 p.m. crash. Ontario Provincial Police said snow and slush-covered roads contributed to the crash.
Another crash south of London sent a minivan driver to hospital with minor injuries. The driver in that crash T-boned a dump truck, which slid into the opposite lane of traffic.
The truck driver steered his vehicle back into the southbound lane of Highbury Avenue near Westminster Drive and wasn't injured. He was on his way home because he'd been told Highway 401 was too slick to work on.
The fall blast of snow caused havoc elsewhere in London yesterday.
Blinded by the snow, University of Western Ontario students, many in T-shirts, raced for the nearest cover.
The first squall dismayed students taking part in a Bike for A.I.D.S. bike-athon outside Western's University Community Centre.
"Oh no, this was not supposed to happen," groaned organizer Samantha ROBERTSON, holding an arm over her face to block the wind as balloons danced behind her and jugs holding donations tipped over.
"What the hell is going on?" shrieked a woman, head down as she plowed through a white wall of snow.
"Um, Okay folks, we are just going to break for a few minutes here and reassess the situation," announced the lead singer of a band that had been playing on a stage.
While organizers did so, students ran in all directions, often bumping into one another in the scramble.
But not even wintry weather could break the spirit of the 150 people participating in the bike-athon, designed to raise money to buy bikes for workers with African A.I.D.S. agencies.
"Well, I guess it's a tradition," Jackie STRECKER said. "The first year we ran it in April and it snowed, so this year we moved it to October, and look at this."
Though the snow may have come as a surprise to most people, it isn't really out of the ordinary, an Environment Canada meteorologist said.
"This time of year, the air masses travel across the Great Lakes…. You're warm, then the next day you're cold. That's the way it goes," Andre Cyr said.
Yesterday's snowsqualls came to southern Ontario after crossing Lake Michigan and tossed about one centimetre of snow onto London.
That's far from the record, said Cyr, citing a 6.8-centimetre dump on October 12, 1988.
Flurries are expected to return tonight when the low dips to -2°C. Highs for the next few days will be in the high single digits, well below the normal high for this time of year of 14.9°C.
Analynda MIELKE and Bill CHERNIAK of University of Western Ontario's Triathlon Club were at the bottom of a hill when the snow hit.
"It was really, really intense," said MIELKE, her face wet.
Though wacky weather may have cut into on-site donations for the event, organizers of the bikeathon still hoped to reach their $10,000 goal, STRECKER said. Each of 14 teams paid $200 to take part and a charity party was planned for last night.
Last year the event raised $7,500, which bought about 32 bikes to be sent to A.I.D.S. workers in Africa.

Marshmallow-stuffing contest at Ontario fair kills woman
Playing chubby bunny is 'like spraying Styrofoam' in esophagus, paramedic says
By Joe FRIESEN, Page A2
Janet RUDD was just being helpful when she agreed to take part in what she thought was a bit of lighthearted fun -- a marshmallow-eating contest known as chubby bunny at the Western Fair in London, Ontario
It was a decision that led to her death, and many observers wonder why this game, which killed a 12-year-old girl at an Illinois school in 1999, is still being played.
Janet and her twin Jennifer, 32, were strolling at the fairgrounds Tuesday evening when they were approached by a fair organizer who needed two people for a contest.
The game calls for participants to stuff their mouths with marshmallows until they can no longer say the words "chubby bunny." As more marshmallows are added, the words become increasingly garbled, which is meant to entertain the crowd.
Janet, described as a kind, gentle woman who liked to crochet and lived with her parents, agreed to take part.
Jennifer declined, but watched her sister take the stage with seven other contestants. She made it through the first round with one marshmallow in her mouth. Jennifer then returned to the horticultural booth where the twins were working as volunteers.
A few minutes later, after putting four marshmallows in her mouth, Janet quit the contest and walked away from the stage. Fair officials say she spat out a wad of thick, white goop before leaving, and was 10 metres from the stage before she signalled for help.
She collapsed, unable to breathe. A crowd gathered around her. First-aid workers tried to perform cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and called an ambulance. The local ambulance service was on scene within minutes, but couldn't revive her. According to Chris DARBY, duty manager for Thames ambulance, Janet went into cardiac arrest.
He says there was little the emergency services could do to help.
One of the most dangerous aspects of this contest, he said, is that participants can laugh or cough when their mouths are crammed with thick, melting marshmallows.
"You breathe in at the wrong time and you draw a huge airway obstruction down into your airway that is essentially self-sealing," he said. "It's like spraying Styrofoam in there."
The coroner's office is investigating the incident.
The chubby bunny contest, which once ran alongside country-fair staples such as the potato- and apple-peeling contests, has been cancelled. Fair manager Dave TAILOR/TAYLOR said it won't return next year.
"It was programming that was unfortunate," Mr. TAILOR/TAYLOR said. "I would imagine we wouldn't be having that one again out of respect for the family of the deceased."
Joseph Hageman, a pediatric intensive-care specialist in Evanston, Illinois, who wrote a journal article about chubby bunny, is surprised that it was played at a public fair.
"It's really not a game. It's incredibly dangerous. It's something people shouldn't be doing," Doctor Hageman said.
Dr. Hageman's article was a response to the death of 12-year-old Casey Fish, a Grade 6 student from the Chicago suburbs who died after playing chubby bunny at school.
Casey's father, John Fish, has waged a long battle to alert people to the dangers of the game.
"The game is insane," Mr. Fish said in a telephone interview. "You have these esophagus-sized plugs and you're not allowed to chew them or swallow them, but your saliva's acting on them and making them slippery -- I mean it's inevitable that someone is going to die."
Mr. Fish said he had been consoled by the fact he hadn't heard of any other deaths related to chubby bunny, but was deeply sorry to hear of Janet RUDD's death.
"I did everything that I could to try and stop this game. I'm very sorry for the loss of this woman and my heart goes out to her family," he said.
"We appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show and she reran the segment twice…. Two of those segments, she ended her show pointing at the camera saying 'Don't play chubby bunny.' The American Academy of Pediatrics also issued a nationwide alert against this game after my daughter's death."
Mr. Fish sued the teacher, the school and the school district. They agreed to a $2-million settlement.
The RUDD family hasn't yet decided whether to take legal action. A funeral is planned for next week.

EBY, Herbert Clifton
Herbert Clifton EBY of Feversham passed away in Grey Bruce Regional Health Centre on January 7, 2006 in his 90th year.
Herb was born in Elsinor, Ontario on August 8, 1916, the son of the late Gideon and Georgina EBY. In 1926 the EBY's left the farm at Elsinor and moved to Feversham and purchased what was to become known as "Eby's Store".
Herb aftended public and continuation school in Feversham and in 1936 he married Madge DAVIDSON. The young couple resided in the apartment above the family store and Herb worked for his father. In 1937 their son Stephen was born and shortly thereafter, Herb, Madge and baby moved to Barrie where he worked at a hardware store and drove a taxi.
In 1946 they returned to Feversham to take over the general store as the elder EBY's moved to Walters Falls. In 1950 their daughter, Sally May, was born. Herb purchased an insurance business from Norman HARRIS and for the next 15 years he and Madge operated the store and the insurance business.
Herb was an active member of many community organizations and as many of his generation was involved in getting what is now known as the "old community centre" established. He enjoyed many years in the bowling league there. The church was an important part of the EBY's life and for 40 years Herb was an Elder at Burns' Presbyterian Church in Feversham.
1986 was a landmark year for the EBY's as they celebrated 40 years of operating the store, their 50th wedding anniversary and made the decision to sell the store and retire to the home they purchased in the village.
Left to mourn his passing are Madge, his wife of 69 years, son Steve, daughter Sally, son-in-law John HOOD, grand_son Kevin HOOD, sisters Marguerite FORSYTH and Marion DOBIE as well as many nieces, nephews and Friends.
A funeral service was held in Burns Church on January 10, 2006 with Dr. David GLADWELL officiating.
