It’s never easy rooting for the Mets, but things really couldn’t get worse for one longtime fan.Alex Swanson, 54, is suing the club over an injury he sustained while attending a game at Citi Field. On June 5, during a Mets game against the Giants, an employee accidentally shot him in the face with a T-shirt launched from a T-shirt cannon, giving him a concussion and leaving his retina dangling, according to the New York Daily News.

Swanson was taken to a medical station but declined a trip to the hospital. He was conscious and could see — despite some swelling. 7 On Your Side Investigates: Mets fan sues team over T-shirt cannon injury he says nearly blinded him https://t.co/2seIMYKLeI pic.twitter.com/Y7d4wEOIL2— Eyewitness News (@ABC7NY) October 1, 2019A CAT scan was done the following day and, according to Swanson’s lawyer, revealed a concussion and eye trauma.”I still have floaters — little black specks — over my cornea. The doctor says the retina could detach at any moment,” Swanson said.The Long Island native said the team has offered him free tickets, but that isn’t enough. Swanson has decided to take legal action and wants to see an end to T-shirt launchers. The team has not issued a statement regarding the lawsuit. The Mets finished the season in third place in the NL East with a 86-76 record.

The Kootenay Ice are going to get a fantastic Christmas present in the form of an abundance of home games after spending most of the current BC Major Midget Hockey League season on the road.Kootenay plays 14 of its next 18 games in West Kootenay arenas after completing a horrendous part of the schedule on the road this BCMMHL season.“We’ve been on the road for most of the first half . . . and when we’ve played in Nanaimo and Victoria we’re getting home at one in the morning, which is a little tough,” said Ice coach Rob Wright.“We’ve got some home stretches coming but we’ve got to try to get some wins in those home games.”The Ice took a point from the Valley West Hawks in BCMMHL action this past weekend in Surrey.A goal by Shawn Campbell of Castlegar in the final minute of Saturday’s contest lifted the Ice to a 4-4 tie.Sunday, Valley West skated to a 4-2 win over the visiting Ice.Kootenay, playing with a short bench after a few players were held out of the game for internal reasons, held a 2-1 lead going into the third period on goals by Kobe Nishida of Nakusp and Nelson’s Keaton Roch. However, Valley West outscored the ice 3-1 during an eight-minute span to take a 4-3 lead.That set the stage for Campbell to score the tying marking on the power play to give Kootenay the tie.Evan Gorman of Trail scored the final goal for Kootenay.“We can play 40 to 50 minutes but we’ve got to learn to play 60 minutes to have success in this league,” Wright said.“When we’ve got teams down we’ve got to finish them.”Sunday, Valley West held period lead of 2-0 and 4-0 before Kootenay scored twice in the third period.Ellis Junker of Castlegar and Campbell scored for Kootenay.Kootenay, 3-16-3, is back home for a pair of games against the Vancouver Northeast Chiefs.The Chiefs are tied for fourth in BCMMHL standings with Valley West Hawks.Saturday, the NDCC Arena in Nelson is the site of the 3:30 p.m. puck drop game.Sunday, the teams play at 7:30 a.m. at the Cominco Arena in Trail.

II Yet few of them have survived the kind of horrific journey that 12-year-old Atahurahman enduredFor 3 months he drifted across the Bay of Bengal which separates India and Southeast Asia to the Andaman Sea on what can only be described as a modern-day slave ship The creaking vessel’s hold was retrofitted by human smugglers to carry more than 400 people packed so tightly together they often sat with their arms cradling their bent knees Twice-daily meals were limited to a handful of gruel and a few gulps of water A couple of months into the trip the captain and other gun-wielding traffickers abandoned ship leaving the passengers to their fates Food–even grains of uncooked rice–ran outThen began what one International Organization for Migration official described as "maritime ping-pong with human life" Eager to make landfall in Malaysia the migrants–a mix of ethnic Rohingya from Burma escaping persecution and Bangladeshis fleeing poverty–headed toward the jungle-choked coastline But the Malaysian maritime force under government orders to refuse such boats shelter pushed the vessel north toward ThailandRelatedportfolioThe Plight of the Rohingya by James NachtweyportfolioThe Plight of the Rohingya by James NachtweyThe Thai authorities fixed the boat’s engine and tossed some food and water to the passengers who by this point were drinking their own urine But they then towed the boat back to international waters wanting nothing to do with the despondent human cargo The cycle repeated itself: back to Malaysia back to Thailand back to Malaysia

Atahurahman who is a Rohingya walked dazed through a temporary camp set up by Acehnese officials Women and children huddled in an abandoned paper plant their occasional wails piercing the air Men sprawled under tents Medical staff tried to revive the sick including toddlers with the swollen bellies of prolonged malnutrition At least 10 others died en route and were thrown overboard say those who survived the ordeal "We thought we would die in the sea" says AtahurahmanHomelessIf all the uprooted individuals like Atahurahman around the world were to form their own country they would make up the world’s 29th most populous nation as big as South Korea The recent increase in refugees is driven by conflict especially in Syria the Central African Republic and South Sudan as well as by economic crisis Already about 1800 African and Middle Eastern migrants have perished in the Mediterranean this year as overloaded boats sank before reaching EuropeYet of all the world’s desperate migrants the Rohingya deserve special sympathy A Muslim ethnic minority that lives in the west of Burma known officially as Myanmar the Rohingya are not simply poor and persecuted by members of the country’s Buddhist majority They also lack the most fundamental measure of identity: citizenship About 140000 Rohingya have been herded by the government into fetid disease-ridden camps since sectarian tensions with local Buddhists erupted in 2012 That violence which disproportionately affected the Rohingya culminated in what Human Rights Watch deemed "ethnic cleansing" Visiting one such ghetto a UN humanitarian-affairs official said she witnessed a level of suffering "I have personally never seen before"At least 200000 Rohingya have sought refuge in neighboring Bangladesh a country even poorer than Burma The Burmese government maintains that the Rohingya aren’t Burmese at all because they are recently arrived illegal immigrants from Bangladesh "Bengalis" who have flooded across the border Yet many Rohingya have lived in Burma for generations and used to hold Burmese citizenship before laws changed in 1982 Unable to access normal schools and hospitals because of their official statelessness Rohingya are also limited in whom they can marry and how many children they can bear While international advocates as august as the Dalai Lama have rallied to their cause Burma’s own human-rights icon Aung San Suu Kyi the Nobel Peace Prize winner and democratic opposition leader has declined to strenuously defend them "The Rohingya have been discriminated against significantly and that’s part of the reason they are fleeing" US President Barack Obama told a group of Southeast Asian students at the White House on June 1It’s little wonder then that the Rohingya risk the journey to Muslim-majority Malaysia to endure menial jobs unwanted by locals (Though cases of rape torture and execution along the way have been recorded it’s difficult to corroborate every story each Rohingya tells) The route from western Burma’s Rakhine (or Arakan) state has taken them aboard rickety boats often owned by Thais to the Andaman Sea then overland through the forests of Thailand into Malaysia Often the price agreed upon back in Burma (or in refugee settlements in Bangladesh another point of departure for migrants) changes en route and the Rohingya along with an increasing number of Bangladeshis are imprisoned in camps until family members back home or in Malaysia pay upRelatedMalaysiaRohingya Survivors Speak of Their Ordeals as 139 Suspected Graves Are Found
