TEXAS TODDLER SAVES THE DAY
A Texas mother is alive today because of the quick thinking of her three-year-old daughter last week. Officials say Miranda Craig suffers from narcolepsy and she collapsed unconscious to the floor of their house.
That’s when her little daughter Dorothy – just three-years-old – quickly picked up a cell phone and dialed 9-1-1. When a dispatcher answered, Dorothy said simply, "Mommy." The dispatcher coaxed a little more information from the toddler and authorities tracked the cell phone signal to a general area and went door-to-door before finding the Miranda.
Miranda, who has lived with the condition since she was 14, says she taught her tot to dial 9-1-1 when she was really little. She said this is the second time Dorothy has called 9-1-1 for her mother. Mom was treated at home – and everyone’s doing okay.
A plane from the Netherlands going to Spain had to make an "emergency" landing!
Many planes have been forced to make emergency landings due to medical emergencies or technical difficulties.
But for one Transavia flight that was travelling from the Netherlands to Spain, the "emergency" that caused a flight diversion was a passenger's "unbearable" body odor.
Flight HV5666 en-route the Spanish holiday island of Gran Canaria was forced to make an emergency landing after passengers began to vomit and faint from the stench emanating from the "unwashed" man, reported British news outlet the Mirror on Friday (June 1).
The man in question had smelled so bad that staff onboard the Boeing 737 reportedly attempted to quarantine him in the toilet.
The crew's efforts proved futile, however, leading pilots to make the decision to make an emergency landing in the Portuguese city of Fargo.
The man was then removed from the aircraft, where medical personnel took him onto a bus.
One passenger, Mr. Piet van Haut, said the stench of the man was "unbearable". "It was like he hadn't washed himself for several weeks," added the Belgian. "Several passengers got sick and had to puke."
According to the Mirror, Transavia airline confirmed that an emergency landing was made due to "medical reasons".
Joe the Deliveroo guy to the rescue.
Lots of us are afraid of spiders, so many that it’s one of the most common phobias out there. And there are plenty of reasons the creepy, crawly things make people nervous, one of the most important being that some of them bite! So when a student in the U.K. discovered she was trapped in her apartment with one of the eight-legged creatures, and she was too scared to kill it herself, she came up with the perfect solution: order food delivery.
Demi Sweeney spotted the spider but she was too scared it would fall on her head if she approached it, so she had to think fast. Her creative solution to the spider situation? She ordered KFC via Deliveroo and hoped her driver would kill the intruder for her. She asked Deliveroo if it would be possible for the driver to act as exterminator and the company told her she could ask, but admitted the driver could actually be more afraid of spiders than she is.
Sweeney made the request anyway and it all worked out, well for her yes, the spider? Not so much. Joe the Deliveroo driver saved the day, killed the spider and became Sweeney’s “actual LIFESAVER” as she puts it in her shoutout to his bravery on Twitter.
SO keep this in mind if you’re scared of spiders and find yourself with one in your home. Delivery drivers could save the day for you, too. And if not, at least you get food out of the deal.
