White House, Republicans Reach Deal to Avert US Default

White House and Republican negotiators reached a tentative deal to raise the US debt ceiling and avert a default that threatened to send tremors through the global economy, according to people familiar.

President Joe Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy must now shepherd the framework deal, negotiated in extended discussions, to final legislative passage over the objections of hardline lawmakers in both parties. There’s little margin for error, with Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warning that an extension must be finalized by June 5 to avoid a historic default that would send borrowing costs soaring.


Caught on video: NYPD cruiser uses dangerous maneuvers to force scooter off Queens highway

QUEENS (WABC) -- An NYPD police cruiser used several unauthorized and dangerous maneuvers to force a scooter rider off a Queens highway.

In video posted to social media, the cruiser is seen swerving in front of, behind and almost into the moped - forcing the operator to take an exit ramp.

It appears to have happened in the southbound lanes of the Whitestone Expressway in Queens.

Former NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said the video raises a number of issues.



Jet Door Opens in Flight, but Plane Lands Safely

The unexpected opening of an emergency exit door on an Asiana Airlines plane making its landing on Friday in Daegu, South Korea, left passengers shaken, and nine of them were hospitalized after they experienced difficulty breathing.

The police arrested a man in his 30s on suspicion of forcing open the door. The suspect, who could face charges of violating aviation security laws, did not reveal a motive, said Kim Hyeong-su, an officer in the criminal affairs division of the Daegu Dongbu Police Station.

The plane, which left Jeju Island at 11:58 a.m., was at an altitude of 700 feet and minutes from landing at 12:38 p.m., when a man seated in the emergency exit row next to the door forced it open, a spokesman for the airline said. According to FlightAware, the plane was traveling about 170 miles an hour at that point in the flight.

Normally when a plane is mid-flight, the difference in air pressure inside and outside the cabin prevents the doors from opening. But the plane was so close to the ground that the difference was negligible, allowing the door to be unlatched, said the airline spokesman, Baek Hyunwoo.
