    A 14-year-old girl in Wisconsin has been charged with attempted murder for allegedly cutting another teen’s throat, NBC News reported. 

    The attack happened in the town of New Richmond on Wednesday. The victim survived. 

    The attacker allegedly rode her bike to the 15-year-old victim’s house and broke bowls over her head, using the shards as knives.

    According to court documents, the attacker told her victim she was a psychopath committing her first kill and that she would likely kill again. She allegedly asked the victim if she wanted to “die now” or “bleed out.”

    [NATL-DFW] Airlines Reading, Responding to Social Media Rants
    A new study says airlines are reading posts made by customers complaining over delayed or canceled flights and poor service, and are responding to those messages. Dallas-based Southwest Airlines has a team tracking Twitter, Facebook and other online sites 24 hours a day. When a customer vents about a problem, a representative reaches out to them. "The approach is really how can we help, wait a minute we hate to hear that.... so what is going on, give us some information and let's see what we can do to straighten this out," said Lisa Goode, with Southwest Airlines. Social media teams help airlines by rebooking customers or by helping keep them more calm by relaying information when problems crop up. (Published Thursday, Sept. 29, 2016)

    The 14-year-old is being held in the county’s juvenile jail, according to police. NBC News is not identifying her because of her age.
