Pilot 'could have prevented' chopper crash which killed 10

  Pilot 'could have prevented' chopper crash which killed 10 A helicopter crash which killed 10 people could have been prevented if the pilot had followed emergency procedures relating to low fuel warnings, an inquiry has found. The helicopter plunged onto the roof of the Clutha bar in Glasgow in November 2013 - killing pilot David Traill, two crew members and seven customers.A Fatal Accident Inquiry (FAI) took place before Sheriff Principal Craig Turnbull in a Hampden court in Glasgow between April and August this year.It heard how five low fuel warnings were acknowledged during the helicopter's final flight.

Jameela Jamil was a model in the early aughts and well on her way to being a rising star in that industry until fate stepped in — or rather drove in.

At 17 years old, the "Good Place" actress was hit by a car, which left in a wheelchair. But don't feel sorry for her. She credits the car accident with saving her life.

"I only modeled for a while and then I got hit by a car and ended up in a wheelchair, which probably actually saved my life," she told Cosmopolitan. "Otherwise, I would probably still be a model with an eating disorder."

The car accident, she said, gave her some perspective.

"I got hit by one car into another car and basically destroyed my back. I was in bed for about a year and in a wheelchair for about six months after that," she said. "At that point, I had gained about 70 lbs on steroids, so I was 'too big' for modeling. I also developed a sense of purpose to protect my body after that and stop starving myself."

It wasn't an easy fix, but she got over the hump.

"I still had an eating disorder mentality," she recalled, "but I stopped actively starving myself once I got better because I realized that my body was fragile and I was taking it for granted."

Jameela Jamil in a blue shirt: Jameela Jamil is not afraid to speak her truth — and let the rest of the world in on it too! Ever since the Good Place actress called Khloé Kardashian out for adhering to and glorifying diet culture — first, by calling her diet obsession “sad” in January, then by slamming her for promoting a weight-loss drink in March — the world has been paying more attention to the body-positive activist’s thoughtful crusade and critical opinions. “I think a lot of people in the public don’t speak out about things that they could well use their platform to speak out with,” Jamil exclusively told Us Weekly in January 2019. “They’re afraid of sticking their neck out because if you do, your head gets chopped off.”              Jameel, who became an #AerieReal role model in 2019, also started the I Weigh movement, an Instagram account that reminds its followers of the value of equality, confidence, self-worth and authenticity with inspirational messages and photos. The star has been open about her own past battles with an eating disorder and feeling mentally ill after trying to live up to Hollywood ideals. Now, she tries to protect teens and young girls from the potentially damaging effects of trying to achieve perfection. And though the British DJ — who was accidentally called by her character’s sister’s name on The Good Place by E! on the carpet at the 2019 Golden Globes — will publicly slam any star for irresponsible behavior, it’s nothing personal. “All I care about is what [Khloé Kardashian] puts out into the world for young girls,” she clarified for Us in March 2019. “I’m not trying to get anyone canceled, not trying to cancel all celebrities and influencers who do this. I just want them to start being more responsible and to start looking out for the mental health of young people because I was a young person who wasn’t looked out for by celebrities I was looking up to. It really damaged me.” She continued, “We all have work to do. But there’s not that much pressure, it’s not hard to know: Don’t sell non-FDA-approved products that are powder on the internet and pretend that’s how you got your face and body. Just don’t do it. Don’t lie. Be honest, it’s not that hard.” Jameela Jamil, we salute your fierce attitude! Scroll through for her best activist moments, social media clapbacks, celebrity slams and more.
