Last week, she was spotted out for the first time since the announcement in honor of World Mental Health Day. Her severe morning sickness kept her from escorting her eldest son, Prince George, to school for the first time in September.

Hostage shot by police nine times during bank robbery files lawsuit

A woman taken hostage during a deadly bank robbery filed a lawsuit against a law enforcement agency for more than $75,000 after being injured. 

>> Read more trending news

Officers shot Julie Huff nine times while trying to take down Cedric Norris. Norris was supposed to be in prison in Texas when he robbed the Bank of Eufaula. 

Norris walked into the bank and shot and killed Randy Peterson. He shot another employee and then took Huff, who had been in the bank as a customer, as his hostage. 

Her attorneys say the gunfire from police left her disabled, unable to work and feeling that her quality of life had decreased. 

KOKI-TV tried to contact the defendants listed in the two lawsuits. Some have not returned calls, while others were advised not to comment on the pending litigation. 

Her attorneys sent the following statement:

Julie Huff was an innocent customer at the Bank of Eufaula when she was taken hostage. The Bank failed have proper security measures in place which caused her to be taken hostage and then severely injured. The Bank had multiple, unmonitored entrances and exits which encouraged this armed robbery. The Bank also failed to have an armed security guard which is in violation of proper banking standards. Further, the Law Enforcement officers knew Ms. Huff was an innocent hostage yet they deliberately shot her nine (9) times. Not one of the nine (9) bullets which hit Ms. Huff came from the kidnapper. All the bullets came from the law enforcement officers—one of whom shot her with an AR15. She was severely injured and has undergone many surgeries. Ms. Huff feels very lucky to be alive, but she has been permanently scarred and injured as a result of the failures of the Bank of Eufaula and the reckless and careless actions of law enforcement.

Some students getting paid to walk around Washington campus as digital billboards

A start-up in Bellevue, Washington, has taken the concept of billboards, made it digital, and a lot smaller. Nomad has launched the product on college campuses around the country -- starting with the University of Washington.

On the way to class on Monday, Derek Ishii made $15 on the University of Washington campus.You’ve probably seen a human sandwich board before — those people who wear advertisements like a poncho. Think of Ishii as the millennial version of that.

“On my way to class, I just open up the app, click the start advertising button,” Derek told us, showing us the iPad he straps to his backpack or his chest.He’s a "nomad" — working for the Bellevue start-up with the same name.Jonah Friedl, 23 — barely out of college himself — founded the company when a restaurant he worked for while attending Washington State University tasked him with developing a unique strategy to attract student customers.“If we want to put people on campus, put these representatives on campus — it’s really hard to do that — hard to track, hard to manage," Friedl said. "So we thought we could build some technology to help us out with that."Here’s how it works: A brand like KIRO 7 will advertise on the screen. The nomad then wears the screen around campus. Due to sensors in the screen, the company can tell which areas they go to and how many interactions they have.Then, Friedl tracks it.“This shows density of exposure -- where they’re getting the most impressions,” he told us, showing us a map of the University of Washington campus on his computer, with areas highlighted like weather radar.Sometimes impressions mean handing out a coupon card with a code, seeing how many are redeemed -- “and then correlate sales or app downloads and attribute that to Nomad,” Friedl said.

The nomads themselves — mostly college students — can lease an iPad from Nomad (the company) or use their own. Like rideshare drivers, they “walk” when they want to, with some limitations.“Obviously 1 a.m. on a Monday isn’t very valuable, so we can kind of control when they’re out there and when it’s available to them,” Friedl said.

Ishii does it every day — he says — because getting paid to walk to class is what’s paying for class.

“Most of the financial responsibility is on me for paying for college,” Ishii concluded.

Georgia has Airbnb's most desired rental property in the world

Treehouses. People want to stay in treehouses.

>> Read more trending news

Airbnb, the online home rental site, recently released its top wish-listed destinations and properties for October, and treehouses were at the top. 

As Airbnb put it, "A penchant for fantasy is evident when examining the most Wish Listed properties by type. The adventure of an outdoor treehouse is by far the most popular type of property on Wish Lists."

The most desired of those desired treehouses, based on the frequency with which active listings appear on people's wish lists, is one in Atlanta.

Hidden away in Buckhead, there are three connected treehouse rooms that rent for $375 a night, with a two-night minimum.

The living room, bedroom and deck are connected by rope bridges. The bathroom is in the main house, a 30-second walk away.

The first vacancy, according to the Airbnb listing, is in March.

Other desired treehouse locations include this one in Italy and this one, which has a pool, in Bali.

Maybe treehouses aren't your thing. In that case, check out the Seashell House in Mexico or this "Pirates of the Caribbean" getaway in California.

The staff at the Cranston, Rhode Island, dentist's office made the best of the bizarre and surprising situation.

They'll need to have a window replaced, as the bird smashed it during the break-in. 

In the post, they say it’s just one of those strange things that can happen, and that, no, they do not take turkeys as patients. 

By the end of the day, the glass had been cleaned up and the room had been cleaned and disinfected. The office says it'll take one to two weeks to replace the window and it apologizes for any inconveniences to its patients.

Sorry, parents, one of this year’s hottest toys for Christmas is already selling out

It’s mid-October. Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet?

>> Read more trending news

If not, you may already be too late to snag one of this year’s hottest toys.

The L.O.L. Surprise! Big Surprise, which is sold at major retailers such as Target, Walmart, Toys ‘R’ Us and Amazon.com and is the equivalent of last year’s Hatchimal, is already nearly impossible to find.

So what is an L.O.L. Surprise! Big Surprise, you ask? Honestly, I have no idea. The L.O.L. Surprise brand taps into the insanely popular unboxing movement by allowing children (frequently elementary-school-age girls) to peel back numerous layers of surprises, such as stickers, charms and outfit accessories, before uncovering a collectible doll. The brand has been topping sales charts since it debuted in 2016.

According to the L.O.L. website, its latest offering, the Big Surprise, “provides the ultimate unboxing experience” with “50 never-before-seen surprises inside.” All of those surprises are packaged neatly inside a large, glittery copper ball that can double as a purse and is sold for $69.99.

If you can find it, that is. It’s currently sold out on Walmart.com, ToysRUs.com and Target.com, but you can buy it from third-party retailers on Amazon.com. However the sales prices there start at $114.

Think you’re the only one who may have missed out? Never fear. Apparently it’s an international ordeal.
