Woman given three days to live at birth is now a college grad

Born with multiple physical disabilities, Nekhidia Harris was given just three days to live.

But on Wednesday, the 24-year-old, who stands just over two-feet-tall, walked at her graduation from Medgar Evers College, according to a new report.

“I feel so excellent,” Harris told ABC New York. “After the hard work, and sleepless nights sometimes, all-nighters, it feels really good that I accomplished my Bachelor’s [degree] in social work.”

It was a day doctors predicted would never come for Harris, who was born with brittle bones and other health issues requiring multiple surgeries over the years.

But Harris keeps looking toward the future and will soon embark on a Masters program at York College in Queens.

“Use my brain as my height, and I’ve stuck with that,” the Edward R. Murrow High School alumna told the network. “And I

Woman suffers permanent brain damage after drinking a liter of soy sauce

An American woman suffered permanent brain damage after she drank a liter of soy sauce in an attempt to ‘cleanse her colon.’

A 39-year-old woman drank the condiment believing it would flush toxins from her body, recounted Dr Bernard on his medical YouTube channel Chubbyemu,

Instead, she ended up going into cardiac arrest and was left with irreversible nerve damage.  

Doctors at the hospital discovered that she had 200 grams of salt in her blood, which is five times the lethal dose.

They tried to bring the sodium levels in her blood – but the change was too rapid, which resulted in her being left brain dead.

Crystal Mangum ‘Snapped’: Durham woman in Oxygen TV show …

I don’t know how this one slipped past me: Durham’s Crystal Mangum was the subject of a “Snapped” episode on the Oxygen network earlier this month.

Mangum, of course, was the dancer at the center of the Duke Lacrosse scandal from 2006. But “Snapped” is primarily concerned with her 2013 conviction for the murder of her roommate and boyfriend Reginald Daye, who Mangum stabbed in 2011.

The episode features news footage and interviews with Durham Police Department crime scene specialist Al Brown, WRAL crime reporter Amanda Lamb, Raleigh attorney Joseph Cheshire V, friends and family members of Mangum and Daye, and others.

The episode aired on Oct. 7 and has been in reruns, so you can still catch it on TV. But if you can’t wait for the rerun to roll back around, you can watch online at Oxygen. It looks like it will be available online
