‘Taste the last kiss of death’: HIV-positive man spits in ER nurse’s face

An Alabama man with HIV was charged with felony assault last month after he was accused of spitting in an emergency room nurse’s face as the woman tried to treat him, police said. 

Montrel Dewaun Minor, 28, of Aliceville, is charged with assault with bodily fluids, a felony charge because he has a communicable disease, jail records show. He was booked into the Tuscaloosa County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail. 

Court records allege that Minor “became belligerent and combative and had to be physically restrained in order to receive the treatment” June 11 at Northport Medical Center, The Tuscaloosa News reported. Even while restrained, he was able to raise himself up enough on the gurney to spit in the nurse’s face, the report said. 

Minor’s saliva came into contact with the woman’s mouth and nose, the News reported

He told the nurse to “taste the last kiss of death,” according to the court records. The records did not say why Minor was in the emergency room that day.

The nurse told investigators she immediately began decontamination procedures for HIV exposure and has thus far tested negative, the News said. She will again be tested six months after exposure. 

The HIV virus cannot be transmitted through saliva, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It can only be transmitted via the blood of an infected person, through unprotected sex or through breast milk. 

The CDC estimates the risk of a health care worker being exposed to HIV on the job at less than 1 percent. The main risk is of being stuck with a needle that has already been used on a patient with the virus. 

Children, 13, 12, bitten by sharks in rare incidents in New York 

Two children were bitten by sharks Wednesday in separate but extremely rare incidents, prompting officials to close the beaches near Fire Island.

>> Read more trending news

It is the first time a shark has bitten someone in the area in 70 years, officials told The Guardian. There have only been about 10 reported shark bites on the island since 1837, and the last one was in 1948.

"It's just crazy. It's incredible," lifeguard Bella Coan told WABC. "There's never been a shark attack on Fire Island. All the older guys, they've never seen this."

Lola Pollina, 12, was bitten around noon about 10 feet off the shore near Sailor Haven Beach, according to WLNY.

"It was just like a quick kind of pull," Lola told WNBC. "I was kind of in like shock, almost, 'cause it pulled and I kind of looked at it and I was like, 'Oh, my gosh.’" 

She told WLNY the shark was about 10 inches with an orange body. She ran out of the water and the shark swam off, she told WNBC.

“I saw a lot of thrashing and her trying to get to me,” her mother, Barbara Pollina, told WLNY.

Lifeguards helped treat Lola before she was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to WLNY. She said the incident will not keep her from going back into the water. 

Around the same time, Matthew Donaldson, 13, was boogie boarding about 4 ½miles away at Atlantique Beach when a waved knocked him off his board and a shark bit him, leaving a tooth embedded in his skin, according to WABC. He was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

"It wasn't sharp, it was just kind of a shock feel," Matthew told WABC. "Because it was really quick, it was like one second, went like that and then it just let go immediately."

The tooth is being analyzed to determine the type of shark species, according to WNBC.

And while officials have not “totally confirmed” they were shark bites, all of the Fire Island beaches are closed with authorities investigate. The Town of Islip also closed its ocean-facing beaches, according to WABC.

"We're seeing this as an opportunity to remind everyone the water is beautiful, it is magnificent here on the South Shore of Long Island, but the water is treacherous," Angie Carpenter, town supervisor, told WNBC. "We need to be careful at all times."

Time magazine has put its on mark on the summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. 

The graphic artists at the magazine have morphed the two leaders into one for its latest cover.

The illustration was created by Nancy Burson, a visual artist. The image, according to Time, “is meant to represent this particular moment in U.S. foreign policy, following the pair’s recent meeting in Helsinki, Finland.”

“A year and a half into his presidency, Trump’s puzzling affinity for Putin has yet to be explained. Trump is bruised by the idea that Russian election meddling taints his victory, those close to him say, and can’t concede the fact that Russia did try to interfere in the election, regardless of whether it impacted the outcome,” Time wrote in its statement

This isn’t the first recent controversial Time cover featuring Trump, CNN reported.

Last month, the publication used a photo of Trump standing over a crying child to illustrate the plight of children and their parents who are being separated crossing the border from Mexico. 

The photo of the girl came under fire after it was learned that the child was not separated from her mother, CNN reported.
