Anxious parents rushed to the school Fighting for his life to hospital by air ambulance the 26-year-old was rushed to his chest. suffering a gunshot wound of an apparent drive-by shooting The victim just metres from a nearby primary school. At this stage a male is in a stable condition at hospital. The bullet has passed through the wound so he is very lucky. The school locked down as anxious parents rushed to collect their children. We tried to ring the school half a dozen times so we can't get through to the school. Witnesses say the wounded man staggered onto the road

and flagged down a passing car before collapsing in a pool of blood.

He fell to the ground, he was on the ground. As I was driving past he was on his knees and fell to the ground. And police have shot a robbery suspect in the leg outside a suburban police station after he lunged at officers with a knife.

Media personality Rex Hunt has admitted paying women for sex in a series of affairs since the early '90s. Hunt says the women weren't prostitutes and his wife is vowing to remain by his side. A testy Rex refused to speak after his morning walk. I asked you not to roll. But he and wife Lynne put on a united front as they faced the Melbourne media. A grilling from 3AW stablemate Neil Mitchell prompting a tearful apology Ashamed. Guilty. I've let the most beautiful person in my life down. Hunt admitted to paying three women for sex since the early '90s. His wife of 34 years says she discovered the affairs over a year ago.

I haven't forgiven him but I sort of have an understanding of why these things happen. Her well documented bipolar disorder said to contribute to the 57-year-old's infidelities. The self-confessed sleaze says he paid up to $1,000 a day for sex and then a one-off hush money payment of $50,000. The girl's happy - she's got no money, I got my rocks off - how good is this? Everything is fine until you get found out. Luke Waters, Ten News. Residents in Queensland and northern New South Wales were treated to a spectacular light show last night when a mysterious green object streaked across the sky. The strange sighting initially sparking fears of a plane crash. These are just some of the images taken by startled residents late last night. Some thought they'd photographed a UFO others described it as a giant fireball. But it turns out a meteorite was hurtling towards earth. It came down and it lasted for 3-4 seconds and it went straight across and landed somewhere. The object was first spotted early evening. Traffic controllers and aircraft reporting the sighting. Police initially received reports of a plane crash

as local radio stations were inundated with callers. CALLERS: It was the most incredible thing I've ever seen. It was as big as a basketball. Disk jockeys even ringing NASA for an explanation. It looked like a firework right towards the end. It was green. The meteorite was seen travelling east to west. It's thought it came to rest inland near Warwick, south of Toowoomba. Police say a farmer raised the alarm after seeing a fireball on his property but no flames were found. As they streak in they can become very hot and actually explode. And don't be concerned if you missed the light show, astronomers predict there's more to come. At certain times of the year there's an extra concentration when there are meteor showers. Kate Donnison, Ten News. 'Oops she's done it again'. Britney cops more accusations of bad parenting. That story when the Morning News returns.

And bathroom ball games - the new invention turning toilet breaks into a competitive sport.

At least 19 people have been killed and nearly 40 people injured

in a violent attack in Baghdad. Police say gunmen stormed a car park in the city's north-east and shot five security guards before detonating explosives under an oil tanker, killing 14. The injured have been taken to hospital, many people are suffering horrendous burns. Authorities aren't sure what prompted the attack. Riot police in South Africa have clashed with striking security guards. The violence began after a 5,000-strong mob

rampaged through the streets of Cape Town. Police fired rubber bullets and stun grenades to disperse the crowd. Dozens were arrested after shops were looted and cars trashed. The striking security guards are demanding improved wages and working conditions. A bomb scare has brought a British city to a standstill. The bizarre threat didn't come from terrorists but the discovery of a 1,000 pound World War II bomb. It was in the middle of the Mersey right beside Liverpool City Centre that the World War II bomb was found. A routine survey of the river by a Royal Navy minesweeper uncovered the device last night. This yellow marker buoy was attached by a team of divers. The bomb was lifted to just below the surface then towed out to sea. The bomb scare caused long delays

not least for 250 people onboard ferries from Belfast and Dublin. They had to wait almost 12 hours at sea before the docks were finally declared safe.

Oh, it was lovely. It was like a holiday on board. There's no problem. We played, there was drink and food. They were very good to us. Liverpool was a key port for Britain in the 1940s especially for the Atlantic convoys, and the German device found today was one of thousands used to attack the city. This was one of the most powerful, destructive bombs that were dropped on Liverpool during the war. It's called the 'penetration bomb'. It's supposed to land, drill into the target and explode to cause the maximum degree of damage. After sitting on the sea-bed for 60 years, it's unlikely that the World War II device would have gone off without a controlled device by the Royal Navy But when you found a 1,000 pound bomb, you don't take any chances. About 200 Indonesian villagers are refusing to leave their homes on the slopes of Mount Merapi despite warnings it could erupt at any time. Clouds of gas and debris continue to spew from the volcano although scientists say it's quieter than in previous days. Indonesia's President toured an evacuation centre and surveyed the volcano for himself. Many villagers still bear scars from when the volcano last erupted in 1994, killing 60 people. Britney Spears is under fire again for allegedly endangering her child. The pregnant pop star was snapped carrying her son the wrong way in a car seat. Motherhood has not been a smooth ride for Britney Spears. Britney busted again! Days after confirming she's pregnant with her second child she's back in the headlines for allegedly endangering her first. There she is driving and, oops, Britney does it again. At least this time Sean Preston was in a car seat. Problem is, he was facing the wrong way. Most child restraints say on their information that the American Academy of Paediatrics recommend less than one-year-olds have their infant rear-facing. US Government guidelines recommend infants under one travel backwards because baby seats recline further that way, providing greater support for a baby's head. Paediatricians warn front-facing infants risk brain damage because they're neck muscles are too weak to cope with the jolting and lurching. It was just three months ago when Britney was snapped driving with Sean Preston on her lap. Last month authorities were called when he fractured his skull after falling off a high chair. And it's only another four months until Britney and her rapper husband welcome baby number two. more about motherhood every day I think Britney is learning each and every day and she's getting better little brother or sister comes along so by the time Sean Preston's she'll have it down.
