In this June 19, 2015 photo, Dr. Gustavo Quintana, who helps people with terminal illnesses end their lives, speaks during an interview in Bogota, Colombia. Most of the procedures he performs are in people’s home, with the patient surrounded by loved ones. Sometimes music is played. During the nine minutes the procedure typically lasts he whispers the same soothing mantra while injecting a cocktail of lethal drugs: “Rest, you’re going to sleep for the last time, a restorative sleep.” (AP Photo/Fernando Vergara)BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — Dr. Gustavo Quintana walks out of a modest, two-floor apartment building in southern Bogota. Inside his black doctor's bag are vials containing anesthesia and muscle relaxants, a syringe and a rubber tourniquet. The man known in Colombia as Dr. Death has just ended the life of his 234th patient: a middle-aged woman suffering from incurable stomach cancer.

Rescuers battle rough seas as they search for survivors from the ill-fated ferry near the pier in Ormoc City, central Philippines on July 3, 2015Survivors reported seeing up to 150 sacks of cement in the ship's cargo area before it capsized in relatively calm seas off the central port of Ormoc on Thursday, city councillor Godiardo Ebcas told AFP. Bloated bodies spilled out of the Kim Nirvana's wooden hull as a crane lifted it from the water and placed it on Ormoc port, he said. The death count was bigger than the 45 reported by the coast guard, which was based on the ship's passenger list, though the guard counted the same number of survivors.
