Mullica Woman Falls Into Septic Tank

A woman was stuck underground for three hours after falling into a septic tank behind a home in Mullica Township, New Jersey Thursday, authorities said.
The 57-year-old woman fell about 10 feet into the sewage tank in the yard of a home along Nesco Road, authorities said. The opening is 30 inches in diameter.
Firefighters were called in from Atlantic City — some 30 miles away — to assist in the prolonged rescue. They used a ladder truck to lift the woman from the tank on a backboard.
Officials said the woman was injured in the fall. The severity of her injuries is not immediately known, but she was flown to an area hospital by medical helicopter.

On Today's date at 2:40pm, officers were summoned to the 3600 block of Nesco Road in the Nesco section of Mullica Twp for a call of a person that fell into a hole in the rear yard of a home. Officers arrived and found 57 year old Tami Camp conscious and alert complaining of severe back pain in the bottom of an old abandoned septic tank approximately 10 feet underground.

It was quickly determined that this incident was a confined space rescue event. Atlanticare E.M.S. along with the Elwood, Nesco and Hammonton Fire Departments responded. The Atlantic City Fire Department's Confined Space Rescue Team responded as well. Utilizing the Hammonton Fire Department's Tower Ladder Truck, the Atlantic City Fire Department conducted a rescue utilizing a system of ropes and braces to remove the patient safely. The patient was then airlifted to Atlanticare Hospital from a medivac helicopter which landed at the scene of the event. A Mullica Twp. police officer and then an Atlanticare EMS worker entered the the hole utilizing a ladder to provide care prior to Atlantic City Fire Departments arrival.

It is believed that the victim fell through a rotted cover of the abandoned septic tank around 2:00pm. It took approximately 30 minutes for her son to hear her screams for help. Her son went to a neighbor's house to call 911. It is estimated that she was in the hole for approximately 2 1/2 hours before being removed.

The Mullica Township Police Department would like to thank all that were involved in this rescue. The event required a great deal of technical skill and patience to remove the victim safely.

Mistrial In Menendez Case

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The federal bribery trial of Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez ended in a mistrial Thursday when the jury said it was hopelessly deadlocked on all charges against the New Jersey politician and a wealthy donor.

Menendez, 63, is accused of using his political influence to help Florida eye doctor Salomon Melgen in exchange for luxury vacations in the Caribbean and Paris, flights on Melgen's private jet and hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions to organizations that supported the senator directly or indirectly.
Prosecutors said Menendez pressured government officials on Melgen's behalf over an $8.9 million Medicare billing dispute and a stalled contract to provide port screening equipment in the Dominican Republic, and also helped obtain U.S. visas for the doctor's girlfriends.

Mullica School Honors Veterans

This year, school was not in session on Veterans Day, which fell on a Saturday, so districts around the region are holding events to honor veterans throughout the week.
  In Mullica Township, where on Thursday, more than 60 veterans from the area, many with children or grandchildren in the school system, will be celebrated.
Principal Matt Mazzoni, said the event began many years ago, before he came to the district.
“It’s a part of our history and the kids are learning it in text books. But there’s nothing like it if they get to see everyday people in their community that have served in a war,” Mazzoni said.

Informational update regarding the escape from Harbor Fields Detention Facility

On November 15, 2017 at 12:20 am, four juveniles escaped from the Harbor Fields Juvenile Detention Facility in Egg Harbor City, NJ.  The individuals are identified as Stephine Woodley, Raymir Lampkin, Michael Huggins and Donovan Nickerson.  Their photographs are being provided and they are considered to be dangerous.

As a precaution all Township of Hamilton Schools, St. Vincent DePaul School and Greater Egg Harbor School District schools are closed today.

If anyone has any information regarding the escaped juveniles please call the Atlantic County Sheriff’s Office at 609-909-7200.
 New Jersey State Police and Bridgeton police took three of the teens into custody in Bridgeton — about 35 miles from Egg Harbor City, the Atlantic County Sheriff's Office said.

 Michael Huggins remains on the run and should be considered dangerous.  Huggins is charged with 1st degree murder

The search for Huggins continues

Harborfields takes in offenders accused of more serious crimes, or who have a longer arrest record.  Atlantic County has a shared services agreement with other counties which pay to have their offenders sent to EHC.   Only eight inmates were in the facility at the time of the escape.

Egg Harbor City Escapee update: 3 out of 4 subjects are in custody, the 4th is believed to be out of the area. We have no reason to believe that the 4th subject on the loose is in our area.

Illegals Storm Senate Building

A couple of quick questions come to mind when most law-abiding Americans see illegal aliens storming our government buildings: “Is there anywhere else in the world where hundreds of illegal aliens are storming government buildings that house lawmakers, to demand the same rights afforded to legal citizens? And does I.C.E. have the day off or something?

Hundreds of illegal and legal immigrants descended upon the Hart Senate building Thursday afternoon, gathering in mass protest of the Trump administration’s decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Act.

Pipe Organ Dedication Concert In Mullica

MULLICA TOWNSHIP — The pews were full Sunday afternoon at the historic Batsto-Pleasant Mills United Methodist Church as about 130 people listened to a dedication concert featuring a pipe organ built in Italy using antique methods.
“This is the smallest pipe organ I have ever dedicated in my life,” organist Steven Ball said of the 177-pipe organ that fit snugly into a corner, but put out a powerful sound. Ball and trumpet and piano player Jim Commander played mainly hymns and other pieces from 17th and 18th century composers such as Henry Purcell and George Friderich Handel.
“Some may know me from my work with the largest pipe organ in the world, in Atlantic City,” Ball said of the organ in Boardwalk Hall, which has more than 33,000 pipes.

Evelyn Schoenstein, of Egg Harbor City, said she attended to hear the music and revisit the church she has known her whole life. Her parents are buried in the cemetery there.
Organ builder Daniel Taccini, 51, of Rome, restores pipe organs for a living and has built just five of the instruments.
“This is my business card,” said Taccini, who said he has a passion for building them and spent about $20,000 building this one and shipping it to the United States. He will return to Rome on Tuesday, but is hoping to find more work in the U.S., saying there isn’t much work in Italy anymore.
Taccini has restored many organs from the 18th century and even earlier, so he was familiar with the building methods for creating sound without electricity.
“This is my kid,” he said. “My bambino.”

The church dates back almost to the 18th century, having been built in 1808, so the two are a perfect match, Ball said.
Ball lives in the historic Elijah Clark house within walking distance of the church. He is a friend of Taccini, and helped arrange for Taccini to lend the instrument to the church.

“Ever since the land was given by Elijah Clark (for the church), there has been a relationship between the stewards of the house and the church,” Ball said. He is continuing that tradition, he said.
Daniel Walters, of Margate, grew up in the Nesco section of the township and also has family buried there, he said. He knows Ball from his volunteer activities helping get the Boardwalk Hall organ restored.

“I have many fond memories here,” said Walters, who was there with wife Maria. “It’s always good to come back to the country. There’s a lot of history out there in that cemetery.”
The Rev. Dave Carber said services are at 9 a.m. Sundays, and the church plans to have more organ concerts in future.
“The church is not just a museum piece,” Carber said. He said it is involved in toy drives and a food pantry to help needy families in the township.
