Brisbane Father’s Heartbreak After His Pilot Son Tragically DIED In A Freak Plane Crash

A Brisbane family have spoken about their ‘beautiful’ son who died after his plane fell out of the sky.

Darcy McCarter was killed alongside another pilot on Monday afternoon after the Cessna 210 aircraft they were flying crashed outside Darwin airport.

The young man had been travelling to Elcho Island, off the coast of the Northern Territory, where he was based.

The light plane lost both wings as it ripped through bushland and crashed on a rural road shortly after take-off.

It is believed to have been carrying a dead body to the island for burial.

His father Phillip McCarter, who is an air traffic controller at AirServices Australia, wrote a Facebook post to honour his son, describing himself as ’empty’ now that Darcy is gone.

‘Many of you will already know, but we lost our beautiful boy yesterday,’ the post began.

Hundreds of friends of the family have shared their deepest condolences beneath the post, many of whom spoke of special memories they had shared with Darcy (pictured left)

‘He was flying out of Darwin to Elcho Island, where he was based as a pilot serving the local community. We don’t know what happened, but the plane crashed and the two pilots on board didn’t make it.

‘As you can imagine we are all absolutely heartbroken and cannot believe this has happened. We have lost our darling boy and brother to Ella. We can’t imagine our lives without him and love him with all our hearts. We love you.

‘I am empty.’

The six-seater, single engine Cessna 210 left Darwin Airport on its way to repatriate the man's body at Elcho Island when it went down near Howard Springs

Superintendent Tony Deutrom said heavy rain at the time of the crash was being considered as a factor.

‘This time of year is quite notorious for inclement weather and that will form part of the investigation,’ he said.

‘There’s obviously a body of work that needs to be undertaken… before we can draw any conclusions as to what it was doing.’

Investigators from the Australian Transport and Safety Bureau are on their way from Canberra to investigate the 200m radius crash site.

‘Your Mum Is Going To Get F***ing Raped Today’

Disgraced businessman Salim Mehajer has allegedly threatened to rape a custom car mechanic in a vicious and expletive-ridden phone recording.

Police are investigating after a man, reportedly Mehajer, was recorded making disgusting threats to a staff member at Queen St Customs, a vehicle repair shop in Revesby, in Sydney’s west.

‘You f****** Shia dog, I’m going to f****** rape you,’ the man on the phone can be heard saying.

Threats were also made to rape the mechanic’s mother in the recording which was leaked bySeven News on Tuesday.

‘Your mum’s going to get f****** raped today you f****** dog.’

In the tirade of abuse, derogatory comments were also made about the man’s religion, Shia Islam.

‘You’re a Shia dog, you mother*****,’ were heard on the recording.

The recording is now being investigated by Bankstown detectives.

Detectives reportedly questioned witnesses to the abusive phone call on Tuesday.

The victim of the verbal abuse told Seven News he did not want to be identified.

He also said he was surprised the phone call was leaked and did not know how the police obtained a recording.

Mehajer is no stranger to allegations of abusive tirades.

In 2016 Mehajer filmed himself threatening to rape the parents of his estranged wife Aysha in a shocking video message filmed after the pair separated.

‘Aysha, you’ve got five minutes to give me a call… I’m going to rape your mum. Your mum and your f****** dad,’ Mehajer said.

In the confronting video, Mehajer also told his estranged wife ‘I hoope you die you f****** sl**’.

The video was reportedly sent to Aysha after the former beauty therapist moved out of Mehajer’s home in 2016.

Mehajer was rushed to hospital last Monday after he crashed his car on his way to court.

He failed to show up to two separate hearings last week on medical grounds, with a spokesman for Mehajer slamming claims the accident was staged as ‘evil’ and ‘ludicrous’.

He appeared in court on Tuesday over a civil dispute related to a land transaction.

In September 2015, Salim Mehajer was also accused of making vicious threats to a man at his gym.

Mehejar reportedly threatened to kidnap Lindt siege survivor Joel Herat after an incident with Mr Herat’s father Bruce at a gym in Burwood, Sydney’s inner-west.

Mr Herat told a Burwood court Mehajer told him ‘I’m going to find where you live motherf***** and I’m going to kidnap your children’.

Mehajer was not convicted, telling the judge ‘those certain words don’t exist in my vocabulary’.

Judge Says Daniel Morcombe’s Killer Deserved To Be Protected Behind Bars

The man responsible for torturing the killer of missing 13-year-old Daniel Morcombe stalked his victim for a month, plotting out the best way to hurt him.

Adam Paul Davidson, 31, poured boiling water on Brett Peter Cowan as he sat at a table playing cards with other inmates at the Wolston Correctional Centre in Queensland.

Prosecutor Mark Whitbread told Brisbane District Court inspiration had struck Davidson when he saw a man pass through the gates of the prison in compression garments.

Adam Paul Davidson (court sketch pictured) stalked child-killer Brett Peter Cowan for a month to decide on the best way to hurt him

After seeing a man in a burns suit with horrific scarring, he decided to pour boiling water on Cowan, who is serving a life sentence for murdering missing teen Daniel Morcombe

The man was covered in horrific scars and wearing a burn suit after a similar attack had been directed at him.

‘He would love that scarring to be on Cowan,’ Mr Whitbread said.

In sentencing Davidson on Monday, Judge Ian Dearden said every person was entitled to be treated respectfully, no matter how appalling the crimes they had committed.

‘We are all precious human beings, it doesn’t matter who we are,’ Judge Dearden said.

‘You have no entitlement to act as a vigilante.’

Davidson attacked Cowan using a a mop bucket filled with boiling water, which he poured over the man’s head.

As the child-killer screamed ‘why why why’, Davidson used the empty bucket to beat him over the head.

Cowan was playing cards with other inmates at the Wolston Correctional Centre in Queensland (pictured) at the time 

Davidson said he acted alone in the attack, and referred to Cowan as a 'f***ing grub' (pictured: A cell at the high security prison)

Cowan, 48, received superficial burns to 15 per cent of his body, including on his head, chest and leg, and was treated in hospital to prevent infection.

He was left permanently disfigured.

Davidson told investigators he attacked Cowan ‘for a little bit of retribution’ and he wanted him ‘to feel the pain like someone like Daniel Morcombe has felt’.

‘I did it. Only me no one else was involved. He had it coming, he’s a f***king grub,’ Davidson said.

Davidson was sentenced to three years for his actions, but will be released on parole next month after time served.

Davidson said he wanted Cowan to 'feel the pain like someone like Daniel Morcombe (pictured) has felt'

Daniel (pictured) was just 13 when he was abducted and murdered in 2003.  His remains were not recovered until August 2011

Daniel Morcombe’s remains were found in August 2011 after an elaborate police operation prompted Cowan to confess and lead undercover officers to where he dumped Daniel’s body.

Cowan was found guilty of murder, indecent treatment of a child and interfering with a corpse. 

Davidson has been jailed for a series of unpaid hotel bills, which he booked with maxed out credit cards, as well as holding up a Queensland bottle shop using his finger pointed through his pocket in place of a gun.

Millionaire Centrelink Fraudster Convicted of Ripping off Taxpayers Is Finally Evicted

 

A ‘millionaire’ Muslim woman who rorted the public housing system for nearly two decades by posing as a battling single mother has finally been evicted from her taxpayer-funded flat.

Rebecca Khodragha lived in the Punchbowl apartment in south-west Sydney for 18 years, failing to tell authorities her husband owned a lucrative business which reportedly collected a million dollars a year.

Ms Khodragha was found guilty of two counts of fraud in November last year and was sentenced to three months jail, which she served as home detention at the Punchbowl unit.

She unsuccessfully appealed her sentence in February and the Department of Family and Community Services said it would immediately commence proceedings to evict the convicted thief.

On Monday, Ms Khodragha finally spent her first night without government-owned housing.

A man at the Punchbowl unit on Monday was seen loading Ms Khodragha's belongings on to a rental truck

‘She is no longer a public housing tenant and she will never, ever be allowed back into public housing,’ Family and Community Services’ Paul Vevers told Seven News.

He raised his arms and refused to comment when asked if the fraudster would pay back the money she ripped off Australian taxpayers.

Ms Khodragha married husband Khaled in an Islamic ceremony in 1991, but their wedding was unregistered.

Documents revealed Khaled’s electrical contracting business, which raked in $1million each year, was registered to the Punchbowl apartment, according to Seven.

The couple also reportedly had two other properties – a Lakemba unit and a Greenacre house – at the time.

On Monday, Ms Khodragha (pictured earlier this year) finally spent her first night without government-owned housingShe had been living in a Punchbowl housing commission in Sydney's south-west since 1999

‘She’s not just cheating the taxpayer, she’s cheating people in need,’ Mr Vevers told the broadcaster in February.

After a tip off from the public, Ms Khodragha was prosecuted and ordered to pay back more than $80,000 in rent.

According to Housing NSW, around 60,000 people are on the waiting list for public housing.

Hundreds of Australian Soldiers Caught On Facebook Group Promoting Child Abuse, Rape and Domestic Violence

Scores of serving members of the Australian Defence Force are allegedly part of a Facebook group which shares material promoting domestic violence, rape and sexual abuse of children.

The Victims of Abuse in the Australian Defence Force Association has undertaken an analysis of eight per cent of the 30,000 likes of the Facebook site SNAFU – Situation Normal All F***D uP-and identified 100 serving Australian defence personnel so far.

 

Some of the material shared on the site carries misogynistic messages or cartoons and memes promoting child sex abuse.

Scores of serving members of the Australian Defence Force are allegedly part of a Facebook group which shares material promoting domestic violence, rape and sexual abuse of children

‘There’s a picture of a poor girl naked, hanging from a rope and a rafter and the meme reads – if you rape them right you don’t have to kill them, they will kill themselves,’ association secretary Jennifer Jacomb told AAP.

‘It shows the ongoing culture of abuse is alive and well in the Australian Defence Force.’

Another meme reads: ‘The best part of a hooker dying on you?… the second hour is free.’

Ms Jacomb alerted Veterans Affairs Minister Dan Tehan to the site in July.

The group represented a national security risk was been monitored by foreign nationals in China and Russia.

A Defence spokesman said the department did not endorse the SNAFU Facebook site.

Some of the material shared on the site carries misogynistic messages or cartoons and memes promoting child sex abuse.

‘The use of the Commonwealth logo on the SNAFU site is also not sanctioned by Defence,’ the spokesman said.

‘Defence has approached Facebook and requested the page be shut down for violating Facebook’s community standards.’

The defence force’s investigative service has been looking into the site to determine whether any serving members or Defence public servants have engaged in unlawful or inappropriate use of social media.

The Facebook site SNAFU was taken down on Monday afternoon (pictured: a crude image posted on the Facebook group)

‘Anyone found to have acted contrary to Defence policy will be held to account with disciplinary or administrative action being taken against them,’ the spokesman said.

‘Anyone found to be engaging in criminal behaviour on the site will be referred to the relevant authorities for further investigation.’

‘Penis-In-Vagina Sex Is Not The Ultimate Sex’

A controversial ‘No’ campaign commercial that references sex and male and female reproductive organs has been banned from playing on Australian television until later at night.

The free-to-air commercial funded by the Coalition for Marriage references quotes from Minus18, Australia’s largest youth-led organisation for the rights of LGBTQ people.

‘Penis-in-vagina sex is not the only sex, and certainly is not the ultimate sex,’ the advertisement references the government-supported group.

The latest polls show the ‘Yes’ vote has a strong majority of nearly 60 per cent of the vote with more than two-third of ballots being turned in.

The latest polls show the 'Yes' vote has a strong majority of nearly 60 per cent of the vote with more than two-third of ballots being turned in

The commercial, which is set to air on Australian TV on Monday night, was given an MA rating due to its ‘depictions of implied sexual activity and verbal sexual references’ and as such cannot appear any earlier than 8.30pm.

The 30-second ad beings showing footage of Roz Ward, the founder of Safe Schools, addressing a pro-same-sex marriage rally.

‘It’s a total contradiction to say; yeah we want safe schools coalition, but you can’t get married to the person you love,’ Ms Ward says.

Victorian pastor Heidi McIvor, who has been featured in other Coalition for Marriage commercials, then speaks over the top of a Minus18 quote.

The advertisement claims allowing same-sex marriage will lead to bigger issues for Australian parents in raising their children and what they are exposed to as a part of the education system

‘None of the mothers I know are homophobic, and they don’t want to see bullying, but this isn’t that. It really feels like it’s part of a bigger agenda,’ she says.

The Coalition for Marriage disagreed with the mature audience classification, arguing the Minus18 references were part of the Victorian government’s curriculum made available to students from Year Seven and above.

‘It beyond belief that taxpayer-funded LGBTIQ sex and gender education materials openly made available to students of all ages are given an MA rating for television,’ spokesman Lyle Shelton said.

‘The issue of these materials, of parents’ rights, and the direct relationship with changing the Marriage Act are there for all to see, and parents should beware.’

Queensland Prisoner Gets Extra Three Years For Torturing Daniel Morcombe’s Paedophile Killer

A man jailed over unpaid hotel room bills and a bizarre robbery where he used his finger as a makeshift gun says he acted alone when he poured boiling water on Daniel Morcombe’s killer.

Adam Paul Davidson pleaded guilty in the Brisbane District Court on Monday to one count of torture, and is expected to be sentenced later in the day.

On August 5 last year, he poured boiling water over the head of Brett Peter Cowan, who was jailed for life after abducting and killing 13-year-old Daniel Morcombe on the Sunshine Coast in December 2003.

Adam Paul Davidson said he acted alone when he poured boiling water over Brett Cowan's head, disfiguring him permanently

The court heard Davidson, 31, plotted and watched Cowan’s movements for a month to find the best way to harm him.

Prosecutor Mark Whitbread said Davidson poured a bucket of boiling water over Cowan’s head while the then 46-year-old was playing cards with other inmates at the Wolston Correctional Centre in Queensland.

He then struck Cowan in the head with the bucket three to four times.

Cowan received superficial burns to 15 per cent of his body, including on his head, chest and leg and was treated in hospital to prevent infection.

The child-killer was left left permanently disfigured.

The court heard Davidson got the idea to scald Cowan after he saw another prisoner bearing horrific scars and wearing a burn suit from a similar attack.

Davidson told investigators he attacked Cowan ‘for a little bit of retribution’ and he wanted him ‘to feel the pain like someone like Daniel Morcombe has felt’.

‘I did it. Only me no one else was involved. He had it coming, he’s a f***king grub,’ Davidson said.

Cowan was found guilty of murder, indecent treatment of a child and interfering with a corpse.

The Morcombe family declined to be present for his sentencing, in which Supreme Court Judge Roslyn Atkinson spoke at length about Cowan’s crimes.

She described his crime as ‘entirely abhorrent.’

‘You didn’t look like a monster, you didn’t look like a paedophile, you looked like an ordinary person,’ she said.

‘You knew if he ran away, you’d be caught. So you killed him. You killed him because you didn’t want to get caught.

‘Everything you did to that boy is horrific and disgraceful. I’ve seen no evidence in the months you’ve been in this court that you ever felt any remorse for what you did.

‘You have tragically and pointlessly snuffed out a young life.’

The sentencing hearing for Davidson continues.

Daniel Morcombe went missing on December 7, 2003. His body was not found until August 2011

Right-Wing Milo Yiannopoulos Says Australians Should Vote ‘NO’ To Same Sex-Marriage

Highly controversial conservative activist and self-proclaimed ‘champion of free speech’ Milo Yiannopoulos married his boyfriend in Hawaii earlier this month.

But the right-wing firebrand has urged Australians to vote ‘No’ to same-sex marriage ahead of his first tour of the country.

‘My gut would be to vote against it,’ the openly gay 33-year-old said on Monday.

‘I’m gay and a Catholic. The highest priority for me is making sure no church, no believer anywhere, is required to violate their religious conscience.

Highly controversial conservative activist and self-proclaimed 'champion of free speech' Milo Yiannopoulos as urged Australians to vote 'No' to same-sex marriage

‘I think those things can co-exist perfectly peacefully. I think the state probably should recognise a gay couple who want to commit to one another.

‘But the paramount consideration is not those gay couples – it is religious freedoms.’

He said governments aren’t attempting to ‘make gay people’s live’s better’ by legalising same-sex unions.

‘It’s normally warfare via legislation designed to punish conservatives and people of faith,’ he said.

Yiannopoulos also revealed he held concerns that legalising same-sex marriage could have what he said was an unfavourable affect on ‘gay culture’.

From opposing gay rights, transgender issues and also the 'Black Lives Matter' movement, Yiannopolous' views are often divisive

‘One of the few advantages of being gay was that you could tumble out of a nightclub at 1am on a Tuesday and no one could have a go at you for it.

‘But if we’re buying into these institutions like marriage, I worry that there will be a deadening effect on gay culture.

‘So my instinct would be to vote against it and to look at some kind of proposed law that people could read and think about.’

From opposing gay rights, his controversial comments on transgender issues and the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement, Yiannopolous’ views are often divisive.

The so-called ‘internet supervillain’ shot fame after he was banned from Twitter when he was blamed for a campaign of abuse directed at Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones.

He has likened feminism to cancer, Islam to AIDS and he was sacked as Tech Editor at Brietbart News after audio surfaced of him appearing to condone sexual relationships between teenage boys and older men.

The so-called 'internet supervillain' has previously likened feminism to cancer and Islam to AIDS

A petition demanding Minister for Immigration Peter Dutton deny Yiannopoulos a visa has attracted just over 1,000 as of Monday.

A counter-petition, set up by political commentator Mark Latham, has been signed well over 11,000 times.

It is understood that his visa will not be cancelled and his tour will go ahead.

‘Aren’t they sweet? The best they could do was marshal 900 people to sign that petition,’ Yiannopoulos said.

‘There was about 10,000 who signed the counter-petition to let me in.

‘I just find it sweet, adorable and charming when people get so upset about a gay man having the wrong opinions and telling the wrong jokes.’

Yiannopolous bring his Troll Academy Tour to Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and the Gold Coast from December 1.

‘The response had been absolutely amazing. We’ve just announced a second show in Sydney – the first one sold out in a couple of weeks,’ he said.

‘And then my book comes out in Australia in November. So it’s going to be a whole Christmas of Milo Down Under.’

‘The Odds of Him Surviving Were Incalculable’

The sole survivor of a fishing tragedy that has left six men presumed dead has opened up about the horrific hours he spent treading water at sea, fearing the same fate as his friends.

Ruben McDornan, 32, was one of seven men aboard cucumber trawler ‘Dianne’ when it capsized off the Queensland town of Seventeen Seventy on Monday night.

He managed to escape the sinking vessel by fitting through a tiny gap in a door before clambering to the hull of the boat.

The Queensland fisherman was helplessly tossed around on the rainy and cloudy evening, sadly ‘hearing his friends inside trying to get out.’

Commercial fisherman Mal Priday and his wife Linda heard Mr McDornan’s desperate cries for help as he entered his eighth hour treading water in horrendous seas.

‘He said he doesn’t know how he got out through a gap that small, but he got out,’ Mr Priday told The Courier-Mail.

Mr McDornan and his wife Sammy are pictured on their wedding day in July last year

‘Unfortunately, his mates behind him were unable to do the same.’

Adam Bidner, 33, Chris Sammut, 34, Eli Tonks, 39, Zach Feeney, 28 and 45-year-old skipper Ben Leahy are presumed dead.

The bodies of two of the six men were retrieved on Saturday and the search resumed on Sunday.

But, after locating and searching the ship’s wreckage and surroundings, police divers found no sign of the men by Sunday afternoon.

The bodies of the two men recovered have been identified but names have not been released as next-of-kin continue to be notified. Friends confirmed one was crewman Adam Hoffman.

The sailor who rescued Mr McDornan (pictured) spoke of the emotional moment he was pulled to safety

Coastline patrols will now search on foot, by boats and planes for the remaining men.

Mr Priday called the odds of Mr McDornan surviving as ‘incalculable,’ particularly as he pulled the 32-year-old out of the water with ‘not even a piece of debris to hang on to.’

‘I’m not into hugging, but he gave me a hug I’ll never forget,’ Mr Priday told The New Daily.

'There was relief mixed with utter sadness and concern for his mates,' Mr Priday (pictured) said

‘There was relief mixed with utter sadness and concern for his mates.’

Mr Priday said the exhausted fisherman’s first words to his rescuers were: ‘I’m just so happy to see you guys.’

Mr Priday, who was sailing with his wife Linda and two other crewmates, said it was a ‘one in ten million’ chance that they crossed paths with the sole known survivor.

Queensland Police divers resume their search on Sunday for four fisherman after their trawler capsized and sank off the Queensland coast

‘If there was a one or two degree change in course or if we were travelling at a different speed, we wouldn’t have met him at the time we did,’ he told the Whitsunday Times.

‘I’ve pulled people out of the water before but have never been in a situation like that in the middle of the ocean in rough conditions with a guy in the water saying come and get me.

‘I’m not looking forward to it happening again either. The timing of the whole thing was remarkable.’

Mr McDornan’s wife Sammy took to Facebook on Friday to thank her husband’s rescuers after an emotional reunion.

‘We got our boy back yesterday, and he is doing OK considering everything that has happened,’ she wrote.

‘Our love, thoughts and hope are with our slugger families still without their boys, please keep them in your thoughts. Thank you all so very very much!’

Gladstone Police Inspector Darren Somerville said the two bodies had been brought back to shore for identification after they were pulled from the boat on Saturday.

The husband and wife are seen as they reunite following Mr McDornan's horrific ordeal

 

‘There’s a lot of debris including mattresses, fridges freezers, blankets, lifejackets – everything you’d expect to see on the inside of a boat, which makes it extremely difficult for the divers to see,’ he said on Saturday.

‘It’s not the best scenario, we had hoped to clear the whole vessel today, that hasn’t happened.’

Police used sonar equipment to locate the Dianne about two-to-three nautical miles off Round Hill Headland on Friday afternoon.

The vessel is about 30 metres underwater and was being guarded overnight with a 5km exclusion zone.

Inspector Somerville said the families of the missing men were being kept informed and were understanding of the difficulties facing divers.
