US woman compelled to dump 14.8 liters of breast milk at Heathrow

LONDON —A US mother-of-two, who was compelled to dump 14.8 liters of breast milk at security at London’s Heathrow Airport, has spoken about her humiliation and the ‘incredibly unfair’ security rules.

In an open letter posted on Facebook, Jessica Coakley Martinez, who was travelling without her eight-month-old child, said she felt ‘embarrassed’.

“You made me dump out nearly two weeks’ worth of food for my son,” she said.

Heathrow says the UK government’s rules on carrying liquids on planes are set out for passengers on its website.

The rules, set out by the Department for Transport, say that liquids may only be carried in containers holding 100ml or less in a transparent and re-sealable single bag.

The website says exceptions are made in the case of baby food or baby milk but only if the passenger is traveling with a baby. It says excess liquids should be carried as hold luggage.

Martinez wrote that, although she should have looked up the rules, the regulation that breast milk was not allowed if the mother was travelling without her baby was “incredibly unfair and exclusionary in consideration of all of the other working mothers like me”.

“Being a working mother and ensuring both my job and my child get exactly what they need is the hardest thing I’ve ever done but you managed to make it nearly impossible in a single afternoon,” she was quoted as saying by the BBC.

She wrote: “If I acted irate, it’s because it was the only appropriate reaction I could muster.” I now don’t have the option to solely breastfeed my son because I don’t have enough milk to supply him while I’m at work, despite all of my best efforts.

CAPE TOWN — A single man from Bloemfontein in South Africa reportedly died on Valentine’s Day afternoon after he masturbated 62 times in a row.

Identified as 33-year-old, David Mabuza died of heart attack on Valentine’s day afternoon, after he masturbated jaw-dropping 62 times in a row.

Mabuza, who lived with his parents, was found dead in his bedroom after apparently masturbating too much. It is speculated that he was suffering from depression due to being ‘extremely lonely’ on Valentines Day.

David’s mother called security officials after discovering his dead body in his room.

David’s mother told Nusa reporters “One hour passed since I had called him out for lunch. David was the kind of boy to steal food off your plate when you were not looking, I knew something was wrong when he didn’t come out to eat, he was a great kid” she said as she began to cry.”

Officer Ronny Mkhize told reporters what they saw when they opened David’s bedroom door.

“The young man was on his bed… his pen*s was detached from his body, it must have been so intense it just came off his body, we found his pen*s gripped in his left hand so tightly we couldn’t get it out, it was tragic,” he said.
