Teen proclaimed hero after rescuing 3 teenage girls from sinking car
A 16-year-old from Mississippi was then hailed as a hero rescuing three girls from a car that sinks in a river 3 July. The girls drove their car off a boat ramp, drifted 25 meters into the Pascagoula River and began to sink around 2:30 am. The three teens followed their GPS, which was mismarked, and led them straight into the river.
Corion Evans, a strong swimmer, heard the girls calling for help, jumped into the water and rescued them, as well as a police officer who was struggling to swim. Evans noticed that the officer was struggling to stay afloat and swam him to safety.
“I was like, ‘I can’t let any of these people die,'” Evans said. “’They have to get out of the water’. So I just started getting them, I didn’t even think about anything else.”
Lamb healthy again after fall from truck
A newborn lamb recovered incredibly afterwards falling off a truck in Australia. The lame fell through an opening on March 14 in a vehicle traveling along a busy highway.
The lamb, Constable Sam, was born on the same day of his accident. Constable broke both of his front legs in two places and suffered a fractured skull and serious injury to one eye as a result of his fall. Officials rushed him to Edgar’s Mission farm reserve after finding him injured on the side of the road.
“His skull fracture is no longer broken and his once badly injured left eye seems to have been lost from sight,” he said. Edgar’s Mission said in a statement. “His wobbly legs are now strong and imbued with a sense of victory and his wagging tail cannot hide his joy at the renewed and splint-free mobility that is now his.”
Kat returned to family after escaping her carrier at the airport
A pet from Boston cat is back to its owners after escaping from a transport cage at Logan International Airport three weeks ago. The cat, named Rowdy, escaped from her carriage when Patty and Rich Sahli landed from a flight from Germany.
For weeks, the animal evaded airport staff’s attempts to capture her. Rowdy’s escape sparked a massive search involving airport and Lufthansa personnel, construction workers and animal welfare lawyers, as well as the use of wildlife cameras and traps for safe release. Rowdy received a health check and will be returned to her family.
“I’m a bit in disbelief,” Sahli said on July 6. “I thought, ‘What are the chances of getting her back?’ But I got a call this morning and I’m so shocked.”
