Twenty people were injured, with seven sent to hospital, when a promotional stunt in Seoul for LG's G2 smartphone went wrong, the company has said.

      What I don't get is this: turkeys can fly. At least the wild turkeys that live in the woods of southern Quebec do.

        Wild turkeys weigh half as much as domesticated turkeys, and domesticated turkeys are bred to not fly.
