Mike Patterson dived into a creek to save a stranger’s 4yr old child from drowning. Sadly, the water was shallow and as a result he broke his neck in three places and severed his spine. He is now in intensive care and doctors have confirmed he is paralysed from the waist down. Mr Patterson has no health insurance. A Facebook page – Friends of Mike Patterson’ – has been set up for those who wish to make a contribution to help his family meet the cost of his care

[Hhmm, is anyone, like me, wondering why – if the water was shallow – the child’s mother didn’t just wade into the creek and grab her kid ?]
Looks pretty pleased with herself, doesn’t she?

She was so incensed, listening to these boasts, that she . . .
This is the sight that tugged at a good Samaritan’s heart – a man, Dave Thomas, – sat holding his dog’s paw through a gap at the bottom of a cage, saying a last goodbye before the dog is put to sleep.
The dog, “Buzz Lightyear“, was taken into the Pound when Thomas was jailed for a few days for a traffic violation. Now that he was out, though, he didn’t have the $400 needed to free his dog from the Pound and Buzz was scheduled to be euthanised
Touched by the sight of Thomas and Buzz together, Maria Sanchez posted the pic to Facebook and . . .
Now, however, she has agreed to have sex with him – on one condition . . .
This vid is starting to trend on the internet
And it’s easy to understand why – a rubbish goalkeeper. Some photos posted on Facebook making fun of him. Friends rally round. Goalkeeper gets new found confidence, pulls off wonderful last-minute save to give his team their first victory. A heart-warming tale of a loser being bullied, friends rallying round in support, and loser turns into hero. Could almost be a comic book story.
