Snowstorms in China have delayed thousands of travelers nearing the Chinese New Year. This woman thought her flight was cancelled. All the other passengers were rerouted and caught different flights but ten hours later, the plane still took off with its single passenger.

And just in time too.

Baker recognized the smell of gas near a school a few days later, and reported the leak to authorities, preventing a potential disaster.

Dean Martin said it best:
