Woman Escapes Kidnapping While Jogging In Bridgewater [Video]

RIDGEWATER, MA – A Bridgewater man has been arrested in connection with the attempted kidnapping of a jogger Sunday morning. Police said Gordon Lyons, 57, tried to force a 37-year-old woman into his car while she jogged down Pleasant Street.

The attempted abduction happened around 7:35 a.m. Sunday morning. Video recorded by a nearby business (below at around 0:50 in the upper left corner) shows a man, who police identified as Lyons, stop his car, get out and run toward the woman. Police said he grabbed the woman’s arms and attempted to pull her toward his car. During this time, he allegedly sexually assaulted her.

The woman fought back, and she and Lyons fell to the ground, according to police. Lyons fled the area, and the jogger took of a photo of the car as it drove off.

Women Escapes Kidnapperhttps://patch.com/massachusetts/easton-ma/woman-escapes-kidnapping-while-jogging-bridgewater

Relying on your cell phone during emergency crisis, why it may be a bad idea.

Last weekend, many of my friends and family decided to attend that unprecedented event that swept through downtown Washington, dominating the news and headlines. No, not that one. I am talking about the Women’s March on Washington.

Originally planned and permitted for 250,000 people, a respectable number to be sure, it ballooned to at least twice that, and probably more depending on whom you ask. And while I’m not sure if recently inaugurated President Donald Trump heard the protesters’ message, I do know one thing: He wouldn’t have been able to take a call from them.

I’ve been testing cellular phone technology for a very long time. I used to be The Washington Post’s “Can you hear me now?” guy who would head out once a year armed with cellphones from every network (there were a couple more back then).

I would spend the next several days visiting 58 sites around the region, everywhere from the Navy Yards to a Maryland shopping mall to White’s Ferry out in the wilds of Loudoun County. I would stop at each location and make a series of calls on each phone to a recorded line so I could monitor the call quality and success rates. The results were published in a big four-page color spread in the middle of the paper each year, complete with a map of my results and a feature I would write about my experiences on the trial.

Why we are setting our Goals for 2018 higher than ever!

With security in an  inconsistent world on the forefront of every ones’ mind today.  Medical Alert Devices are not longer for the elderly.  Here at STAT Medical we are working diligently to change the perception of these devices.  In this blog you will find some disturbing statistics.  That is not to alarm anyone but bring education awareness to everyone.  In this year, we will be working on a new device that will create peace of mind for the entire family.

  • Parents sending their children to college
  • Adult children that are left to take care of the elderly parents with dementia.
  • Parents with special needs children.
  • Domestic Violence victims that needs silent immediate help without their attacker seeing them reach for a cell phone.

These are the target markets that I am focused on:

  1. Campus Safety
  2. Special Needs Community
  3. Senior Population
  4. Domestic Violent

Statistics are compelling with these target markets.

CAMPUS VIOLENCE

Stats: The number of shootings increased 23 percent to 49 incidents during the 2006- 07 to 2010-11 school years.

 RAPES ON CAMPUS

One in 5 women and one in 16 men are sexually assaulted while in college

More than 90% of sexual assault victims on college campuses do not report the assault

63.3% of men at one university who self-reported acts qualifying as rape or attempted rape admitted to committing repeat rapes

SPECIAL NEEDS COMMUNITY

Roughly half, or 49%, of children with autism attempt to elope from a safe environment, a rate nearly four times higher than their unaffected siblings

ELDER CARE

  • One in four Americans aged 65+ falls each year.
  • Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall; every 19 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall.
  • Falls are the leading cause of fatal injury and the most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults.
  • Falls result in more than 2.8 million injuries treated in emergency departments annually, including over 800,000 hospitalizations and more than 27,000 deaths.
  • In 2014, the total cost of fall injuries was $31 billion. The financial toll for older adult falls is expected to increase as the population ages and may reach $67.7 billion by 2020.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been victims of [some form of] physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime.
