A Texas woman has been arrested after trying to use Craigslist to dump off her unwanted 3-year-old son. Stephanie Redus, 29, told police she’d been suffering from depression and anxiety in the days before posting the ad, but she couldn’t take medication because she’s pregnant with another child.

She signed her May 1 post with the name “Desperate.” It read:

Hi, I’m trying to adopt out my three year old son. I’m not in a good place in my life and don’t feel like I can care for him properly, but I don’t know where to start. If you or know anyone who is interested in caring for him please let me know. I’m a single mom and can’t do this. Thanks, Desperate.

Burning US railroad bridge collapse caught on camera

Amateur footage shows a Texas railroad bridge dramatically collapse to the ground like a stack of dominoes after a long batte by firefighters to extinguish the blaze.

Firefighters fought for 15 hours to try to put out the fire on the railroad bridge between San Saba and Lometa in the US state of Texas, before conceding defeat and letting it burn out.

The bridge, which spanned the Colorado River, then dramatically collapsed in flames.

The collapse was caught on camera and uploaded to YouTube by Jamie Smart.

According to local media, the bridge, which was used to transport freight, could cost up to $10m (£6.6m) to rebuild.
