Ms Goss said she felt sorry for the children, so agreed to let a homeless woman move in 12...

    Arizona – -( from 12news.comIt was not just one good Samaritan that helped the wounded Arizona State Trooper.  We now know that there were at least three good Samaritans. The first was the man who was headed to California with his wife when he saw the Trooper, Edward Anderson, with an attacker on top of him, pounding Anderson’s head into the pavement, Trayvon Martin style. His ability to quickly assess the situation and take action is somewhat remarkable. The event occurred at milepost 89 on I-10, at about 4:30 a.m. There are no street lights in this remote area.  That...

    An American family found the deceased mother shark on a beach in Cape Town, South Africa, but noticed that something inside the creature was still moving. Realising there could be baby sharks inside, the gruesome but remarkable footage shows the man using a knife to perform a makeshift C-section on the animal. As the beachgoer cuts into the shark, a witness can be heard saying: 'Err... I don't think there's a baby in there.' But moments later something begins to wriggle inside, causing the good Samaritan to jump back and shout as a baby shark squirms in his hand.
