GREAT LAKES, Ill.  (WKRG) –The father of an 18-year-old Navy recruit who died in boot camp confirms the young seaman recruit was a Mobile, Ala. native and a Baker High School graduate.

Kelsey Nobles passed away Tuesday after collapsing. Doctors said she went into cardiac arrest.

“She just passed out after her last PT (fitness exam) and couldn’t be revived,” Harold Nobles said.

Her father said Kelsey had the biggest heart. 

“She was just full of energy. She would give anyone anything, her last dollar,” said Harold. “She was the sweetest soul. That’s the best way I can describe her.”

Nobles said the Navy promises a full investigation.

This is the second death under similar circumstances at the Navy boot camp in Great Lakes, Ill. in the past few months. 

Because of that Kelsey Nobles’ father has questions. 

“For me, I’m just like what’s wrong? These young people are so excited about serving their country and going into the military. Are they doing enough to check them? Does physical testing need to be more in-depth?,” Nobles wondered. “Right now we are just focusing on getting her home and grieving first.”

ESCAMBIA COUNTY, Fla. (WKRG) — A 23-year-old “non-verbal, immobile” woman was sexually assaulted and impregnated while in a health care facility, according to a lawsuit.

The mother of the woman is suing National Mentor Healthcare LLC which operates the Pensacola Cluster health care facility where the 23-year-old was living. The family is suing for over $15,000 in damages. 

The lawsuit states the 23-year-old woman is non-verbal, immobile, and lacks dexterity in her hands and arms, required a tube for feeding, along with multiple other physical limitations. The woman lived there from September 28, 2010, until February 7, 2018, and was totally and completely dependant on the staff at National Mentor’s Pensacola Cluster facility, the lawsuit states. 

The lawsuit states the woman went to Westgate School, a school for children and young adults with disabilities, on weekdays during that time. According to the lawsuit, the only time when the 23-year-old was not under supervision at Pensacola Cluster was when she was at Westgate. 

It was there at Westgate in January 2018, the lawsuit states, where employees found physical injuries to the woman, including hip bruising and noted behavioral changes. 

After being notified twice, the lawsuit states Pensacola Cluster failed to report injuries to the Florida Adult Abuse Hotline and failed to seek medical treatment.

The lawsuit states the 23-year-old’s caregivers removed her from the facility after a medical exam revealed the broken hip, signs that she was raped, bruising, as well as a confirmation that she was pregnant. The lawsuit states the woman later suffered a miscarriage. 

The lawsuit alleges the 23-year-old old was raped at least once and impregnated while in National Mentor’s care. 

Three employees from the facility are named in the lawsuit: Joyce Stokes, Shaneice Pace and Jennifer Prorock. 

The Escambia County Sherif’s Office says its investigation into the sexual assault case has exhausted all leads to a possible suspect.

MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — A Mobile County woman’s Halloween fun turned into a medical emergency. Part of her costume took a frightening turn. 

Anna Tew was ready to start creeping around in the dark this coming Halloween in her new zombie costume. But she’s the one who got the scare when she realized her fangs weren’t going anywhere. 

It cost Anna Tew nearly $3 to finish her transformation into the undead. But the expense grew when her fake teeth wouldn’t come out. 

“I was trying to remove them then because they were just tight,” Tew told WKRG.  Tew used the glue that came with the teeth, however, the adhesive wasn’t temporary. 

Tew says, “It went on and on and I was trying to get them out, and after it was over with, I tried until it was like 2 o’clock this morning. They wouldn’t budge.” Tew continued, “I even took a pair of wire clippers and cut the tips off of those.” She says she was in excruciating pain but wasn’t sure whether to go to the emergency room. Eventually, she found an emergency dentist who could help. 

“He talked about drilling. They had a saw, talked about taking [them] off in sections, and they couldn’t numb it because they were scared they would actually pull my teeth out,” said Tew. “So he went in and picked and pulled and I squealed like a baby and they got them out.”

Dr. John Murphy was able to rescue Tew’s teeth Saturday at his office at the Alabama Family Dental. 

“Just the natural state of your teeth, and your gums can sometimes cause something to adhered and get stuck,” Dr. Murphy explains.

Tew says she learned a lesson and one she hopes to save others from. Tew says she will never use them again.

MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – A gas station surveillance camera captured video of a driver backing into a pump and starting a large fire.

MOBILE, Ala (WKRG) – In a Facebook post shared more than 2,000 times, a Mobile woman claims she was kicked out of The Shoppes at Bel Air because of her shorts.

In the post Gabrielle Gibson writes:

I was literally harassed and kicked out of the Bellair mall in Mobile, AL today because of what I’m wearing. Apparently grown men couldnt contain themselves so I get kicked out. Security officer J. Mathis initiated that he was looking at my ass cheeks and it was a problem. Dont look at my ass then theres a thought? As well security officer Davis and head of security Jim chavis were extremely rude and completely unprofessional about the situation. I told them i have bigger thighs and its just to hot for jeans that I cant help they ride up a bit. It doesnt bother me then it shouldnt bother you. They went as far as to threaten to call a police officer. From what i seen today everyone had short shorties on. I mean come on its August and 100° outside. I dont know why i was pinpointed. Im just disgusted with the behavior of all these people. I was just having a good time trying to look around. Everyone can share this. This whole incident has made me embarrassed.

She also shared a link to a Facebook event called “Bel Air Mall “Daisy Duke” SlutWalk” where women are being asked to come to the mall in their “Daisy Dukes” on Aug. 4.

Ok ladies – it’s time to bring out the booty shorts and crop tops (if you’re feeling it.) One gorgeous young woman was SHAMED and ASKED TO LEAVE because her shorts were “too short.” I have personally worn shorts shorter than what she wore and walked past security and police and no one said one word. It’s summertime. In South Alabama. It’s hot. WEAR WHAT YOU WANT. Don’t allow anyone to shame you for what you choose to wear. We’re banding together to support our sister in solidarity – women’s bodies are not shameful. We shouldn’t be forced to cover up because men can’t control themselves. Bring your ass (literally) and descend on Bel Air with us. Share with your friends! #SistersInSolidarity #StopShaming#WhatIWearDoesntEqualConsent

WISH-TV’s sister station WKRG has reached out to the Shoppes at Bel Air for comment and is waiting to hear back from their corporate offices.
