Swine City Brewing, which plans to open at 4614 Industry Drive in Fairfield, has applied for its state liquor licenses.

The business applied for three licenses Aug. 10, which would allow them to operate a brewery, operate a winery, and to distribute bottled wine.

In May, the Journal-News reported that the new brewery would offer an ever-changing tap list as well as cider and wine.

“We intend to be a family-friendly facility with private outdoor areas for small and large events,” Ebben previously told the Journal-News.

The venue also offers ample indoor and outdoor seating areas and a stage for live music, he said.

Video captured by Argentinian mother Carolina Kotur shows the moment her son was nearly struck by lightning as he played in their yard during a recent storm. Even with other tall objects apparently around him, the electricity seemed to aim right at him.

The unnamed 12-year-old boy survived the near-strike, reports the Daily Mail. In the moments before the lightning bolt struck, the boy was playing with an umbrella and a drainpipe that was gushing water.

Kotur says she was inside comforting her daughter, who is frightened by such storms, when she began filming.

“It was morning. I was with my daughter in the room, calming her, because she is scared of lightning, said Kotur. “My son was walking in the rain and I started filming because I was making a joke, and right next to him the lightning struck.”

“Thank God, nothing happened to him,” she added.

The Daily Mail reports that the strong storm system has claimed the lives of people and livestock in Argentina and neighboring Paraguay.

An East Liverpool, Ohio, woman died at a Pittsburgh hospital after police say potentially lifesaving help didn't arrive.

The officer says he feels defeated. He and his partner found a woman suffering from a brain aneurysm.

Patrolman Jacob Talbott and another officer found the woman unresponsive Saturday morning. 

They said they called right away for an ambulance, and dispatchers said one would be on the way.

But after waiting, they said they called back and were told the EMS crew wasn't coming – and the other two local ambulance companies couldn't come either.

“We were just going to take her to the hospital ourselves. We didn't have time to wait for an ambulance company out of Hancock County in West Virginia,” Talbott said.

So Talbott put the woman in the front seat of his cruiser. The other officer jumped in the back seat and started CPR. They sped off to a local hospital.

The woman was then flown to a hospital in Pittsburgh, where she died.

“I was holding out hope, saying a lot of prayers, asking for a miracle that she'd make it. Finding out she didn't make it is rather tough,” Talbott said.

Talbott said he wants answers from the ambulance companies and said it's unacceptable that none of them showed up.

“I'm not real happy that an ambulance service committed and five minutes later they no longer have a crew available,” Talbott said. 

The woman's name has not been released.

The name of the company that initially agreed to respond but didn't is Ambulance Service Inc., police said.

The company did not answer WKBN’s request for comment.
