Boy Saved Money for Video Games But Donates All $450 to Local Food Pantry

AVON, Ind. (WTHR) — Most kids can't wait to spend their allowance on a new toy or video game.

But one Avon Middle School North student decided to give $450 to a local food pantry.

Brecken Hayes, the soon-to-be eighth grader got a little help from a friend to present that check to the Mary Lee Maier Food Pantry this morning.

We first told you about the food pantry last fall when the shelves were bare.

But the community came through and helped fill it back up.

And now Brecken hopes giving his money to the food pantry will help more people...

Hailed as Hero ‘Spiderman’, Muslim Climbs Building to Rescue Baby

PARIS – A Malian Muslim immigrant has been hailed a national hero in France after scaling a building to save a four-year-old baby; he has also been granted honorary citizenship and a job as a fireman.

“Congratulations to Mamoudou Gassama for his act of bravery that saved the life of a child,” Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo tweeted, The Telegraph reported on Monday.

“He explained to me that he had arrived from Mali a few months ago dreaming of building his life here.

“I replied that his heroic gesture was an example for all citizens and that the City of Paris will obviously be keen to support him in his efforts to settle in France.”

Hidalgo also lauded the 22-year-old’s heroism and said she had called him to thank him in person.

She hailed him as the “Spiderman of the 18th”, a reference to the Paris district where the rescue took place on Saturday evening on a street in the north of the French capital...

An Indianapolis woman reacted quickly to save a 3-year-old boy in danger of drowning in a pool, only to find that his pregnant mother also needed her help.

Cave rescue: 'Hope became reality' says Navy Seal chief

The head of the Thai Navy Seals has said "hope became reality" with the successful rescue of 12 boys and their coach from the Tham Luang cave.

"There was only a tiny bit of hope, but that's all we had to work with."

The group was trapped in the cave by rising water and rescued in a dramatic operation that captivated the world.

The complex, three-day rescue saw four boys emerge on Sunday, four on Monday, and the final four boys plus their coach on Tuesday...

Birmingham college student walked 20 miles to 1st day of work so his boss gave him his car

When a young Birmingham college student's car broke down the night before he was supposed to start a new job, he didn't panic. At least not for long.

Instead, Walter Carr walked. From Homewood to Pelham. All night. In the dark. 20 miles or more.

A Carver High School graduate and U.S. Marine hopeful, Carr walked throughout the early morning hours Friday because he needed, and wanted, the job with Bellhops moving company. He made it to Hoover by 2 a.m. and then to Pelham at 4 a.m.

It was in Pelham that the trek took a surprising turn. Kindness and concern from four Pelham police officers coupled with publicly-posted words of amazement and admiration from the moving company's clients about Carr's work ethic and dedication, led to a massive pat on the back Monday from Bellhops CEO Luke Marklin.

Marklin drove in from Tennessee under the guise of meeting Carr for coffee to personally thank him. That meeting ended with Marklin surprising Carr by giving Carr his own barely-driven 2014 Ford Escape...
