This is awful!
A mother of three, Jan Harding, is fighting for her life in the Salt Lake City hospital's burn unit after an alleged accident of disastrous proportions.
The 67-year-old, who is also a grandmother and a retired school teacher, was recently eating at Dickey's Barbecue Pit in South Jordan, Utah, after attending church when she took a sip of her sweet tea. She immediately spat it out and said to her husband Jim, "I think I just drank acid."

We’re so glad that no kids got hurt after this horrifying scene!
A 14-year-old boy stole his grandfather’s car and went joyriding around Syracuse, Utah. The cops got a call about a stolen vehicle, and they tracked this teen down and before long were in a high-speed pursuit!
The underage driver sped THROUGH A PLAYGROUND full of kids too!

Don’t follow this school’s strict dress code and they’ll follow it for you!
That’s what a group of girls who attend Wasatch High in Utah are learning this week, as they were shocked to see that their yearbook photos had been EDITED in order to show less skin in the pics!
There was barely any skin to begin with, and teens had no idea that the school administration was going to do that!

What’s the plan, Phil?!
Oh he’s got a plan! A business plan, that is!
Modern Family funny man Ty Burrell just opened his very own Bavarian-style beer garden in his hometown of Salt Lake City!
If he’s as good a bar-owner in real life as he is a real estate agent on TV, we think this place is going to be a HUGE success!
Beer Bar will serve up
