Not one but Two! Two happy rescue kitten stories by the same volunteer rescue group, and we are twice as happy. An adorable black kitten, now named Kevin, has been rescued from inside of a car engine in Ballymena. And the other kitten, a calico kitten beauty named Cotton, was rescued after getting trapped in an industrial site under a raised oil tank. Twice the rescued kittens, twice the good news, and twice the gratitude.
You can't really see what happens, but you know it's heroic.
That's State Trooper Eric Devers, who leaps over a guardrail to save a truck driver that had crashed off the highway in Miami County, Ohio. According to the video's description:
An officer with the Ohio State Highway Patrol was honored this week for saving a semi-truck driver's life back in April. Dashcam footage just released shows trooper Eric Devers arrive at the scene of a crash and immediately sprint toward the driver. The trooper found the man still belted into his seat. Shortly after, his eyes rolled back into his head and he stopped breathing, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said.
The truck driver apparently had an atrial fibrillation, which is a quivering or irregular heartbeat that caused him to pass out while driving.
And hey! How cool is CPR? You should learn it yourself and become a hero like that guy there.

Reza Baluchi was attempting to run from Pompano Beach, FL to Bermuda in an inflatable bubble. Although the Coast Guard officially warned him not to make the attempt due to dangerous water conditions, he set off on his journey anyway. Since he was making the journey totally alone, the coast guard had to save him.
This isn't his first attempt, he was also rescued in 2014 during a similar trip:
This happy reunion is the product of good police work. Lola the pug went missing and her owner Kate was devastated. Local police found Lola with people they suspect stole her. The full story is in the video description included below:
Police have arrested three people and charged one as part of their investigations into a series of burglaries and other thefts in the Harlow area. Officers executed a search warrant at a location in Fern Hill Lane, in Harlow, yesterday morning. Two men, aged 34 and 22, and a 23-year-old woman, all from Harlow, were arrested on conspiracy to burgle. The woman was also arrested on suspicion of theft after a pug was recovered during the searches. They were all taken to Harlow Police Station for questioning before being released on police bail pending further enquiries. The woman was released without charge in relation to the theft of the pug as there was insufficient evidence to proceed. The dog was later reunited with his owner at Harlow Police Station. Owner Kate Witham said: “I had been so worried about Lola since she went missing so when I got the call from the police I was over the moon. As soon as I saw her, her little tail went into overdrive and I instantly knew it was her. I am just so happy to have her back.”
Detective Inspector Alison Hooper said: “We have been working hard to tackle a recent spike in burglaries and car crime in the Harlow area and these arrests are just part of our response. We have also recently charged another man with conspiracy to steal and two others with burglary and they are currently before the courts. If anyone has information which could assist our enquiries then I would urge them to call Harlow CID on 101. Alternatively they can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, it offers rewards of up to £1,000 for information leading to the arrest and or conviction of offenders.”
