A Southern California high school student has died after the homemade model rocket he attached to his skateboard deck to propel it forward exploded, killing the student and injuring his friend.

According to authorities, 18-year-old Bernard Moon, of Thousand Oaks, California, died after the blast Monday night while he and a fellow, unnamed 17-year-old senior at Thousand Oaks High School were experimenting with the homemade rocket-propelled skateboard in the courtyard at Madrona Elementary School in Thousand Oaks.

An Indonesian singer known for performing with live snakes has died after being bitten by a king cobra onstage.

Irma Bule, 29, is not a household name in the English-speaking world. But in Indonesia, she is known as a singer of dangdut, a pop fusion of folk, South Asian film music, and rock and roll that rose to prominence in the 1980s.
