Dad leaves kids in car – age 8 girl acts quickly to save brother seconds before kidnapper crosses border

Two small children survived an apparent kidnapping attempt near the border in San Diego. It appears a woman was trying to cross the border to Mexico to get away with the car, but fortunately, their father had prepared them for emergencies with a special cell phone. The brave 8-year-old girl was able to call for help.

Their father parked at a beauty supply warehouse in Lincoln Park, leaving his daughter Malaiah and her younger brother in the car while he went in. It was a hot day, so he left the car running and the air conditioner on.

In just a couple minutes, a woman had spotted the running car and made her move.

“SHE LOOKED AT THE CAR AND SHE SAW IT RUNNING AND SHE SAW KIDS IN IT. THEN SHE JUST GOT IN IT AND DROVE AWAY,” MALAIAH SAID.

Her father saw the car driving off and came running down the street from the store to catch them.

“I SAW MY DAD COMING OUT THE STORE AND I SAW HIM BANGING ON THE WINDOW, BUT SHE ROLLED THE WINDOW UP,” MALAIAH SAID.

That’s when Malaiah remembered the phone, which would now be critical for her survival. She called 911.

“Me and my little brother got kidnapped!” she said.

The operator asked where she was, and she spotted a sign for the Mexico border. Then the alleged kidnapper tried to get the phone away from her. Thinking quick, Malaiah moved away and got to where she couldn’t be reached.

Then the driver threatened to crash the car. Malaiah recalled what she said:

“Give me the phone or I’m going to drive in circles and crash into the freeway wall.”

Finally, the little girl gave up the phone, but by that time, the police had already located them. Guns drawn, they rescued the kids and took the woman into custody.

Malaiah and her brother were rescued with just two minutes left before the woman would have arrived at the border.

Her bravery and quick thinking likely saved her life and her little brother’s life. Then she bravely faced reporters, explaining what had happened with amazing calm and poise.

Authorities say they don’t yet know what the motive was. The woman was unknown to all involved.

 

Teacher Scolds Little Girl For Falling Asleep In Class, Then Student Reveals There’s No Food At Home

Teachers have it tough. Many have walked out of the classroom and formed picket lines to protest low wages and lack of resources. These generous patient and caring individuals are overworked, underpaid, underappreciated and continue to have their financial and classroom resources slashed.

One woman named Rachel Faust, a first-grade teacher from Miami took matters into her own hands, and she ended up changing the lives of her students and those attending her school. It all started during class when one of her students kept falling asleep at her desk.

Rachel took the little girl out into the hallway to scold her. It was here where she’d learned a terrible fact that is all too common for many students across the country.

The student was starving. Her last meal had been lunch the previous day. 90% of students at the inner city school come to class hungry.

“I’M SO SORRY MS. FAUST, I’M JUST SO HUNGRY. I MISSED BREAKFAST, AND WE HAVEN’T EATEN SINCE LUNCH YESTERDAY,” THE LITTLE GIRL SAID.

This tragic news broke the 24-year-old’s heart. She couldn’t change the home situations of these kids, but she vowed to make their time at school joyful and positive. With the hard work and help of staff, the students in this poverty-stricken area achieved A levels in state testing.

Because of her love and dedication to her students, Faust was featured on Ellen. The talk show host told Faust that she was to be featured in a segment showcasing people doing good across the country.

The passionate teacher was assigned to her school. She didn’t want to leave. As she sat with Ellen, she spoke of her pride in her students and how humble she was to be part of such a fantastic group of professionals.

“I am not facing hunger. I can go home and cook myself a warm meal. I know where my bed is at night. My babies don’t, and they come here with a smile on their face,” Faust said. “The very least  I can do is come in with a smile on mine.”

Faust didn’t know the surprise Ellen had in store for her and her school. The teacher revealed she spent $1,000 of her own money to purchase supplies for her classroom. Faust wouldn’t have to use any more of her funds to be sure her kids had all they needed Ellen partnered with JCPenney to donate $100,000 to the school.

Ellen rules! She uses her celebrity and influence to bring joy and love to the world. She’s all about light, love, positivity. She does good for those in true need. She gives back, and that is why so many love her.

23-year-old mom makes history with rare birth that only happens every 480 years

Alexandra Kinova, 23, and her partner Antonin Kroscen were looking forward to growing their family. The couple already had one child together. Twins were prominent for both their families. Alexandra found she was expecting; the good news? She was going to have twins.

The parents-to-be couldn’t believe their luck. How cool was it that they’d carry on the tradition of bringing twins into the world?

Fast-forward a few months later, and doctors gave them the shocking news: they weren’t having twins; they weren’t having triplets either. Alexandra was carrying quadruplets.

But a month later, something incredible happened. Doctors noticed the fifth baby: “When we finally found a fifth head, I started to cry,” said Kinova, whose chances of conceiving them naturally were one in seven million.

The sexes of the children would be revealed at birth. Two of the little ones remained hidden from the ultrasound. As in situations like these, the couple took the news in stride.

Alexandra intended on breastfeeding all five babies.

“The first child I nursed for almost a year and a half, and I want to breastfeed now. ‘While I know that some will be on artificial nutrition.

“I very much look forward to seeing how they will look,” Kinova said before giving birth.
When it was time for the babies to be born, 40 professionals including doctors and midwives were scheduled to be present. Kroscen barely made it to the birth on time after his train was delayed.

“I was crying all the way since I feared I would not manage it,” he said.

Can you just imagine the organized chaos in that delivery room? I wonder if the babies were handled like items on an assembly line.

The five children were brought into the world without any complications. The two are proud parents of four boys: Deniel, Michael, Alex and Martin. They had one baby girl they named Tereza.

This was a historic milestone for the Czech Republic. Their children were the first quintuplets ever recorded: “In our country (birth) statistics have been recorded since 1949 and there’s no mention of quintuplets. In the Czech Republic quintuplets are born on average once every 480 years,” doctor Alena Mechurova said.

Though they were in good condition, mother and babies were sent to intensive care. The five little ones were given a 95% chance of growing up healthy.

Instead of one new baby, they have a family of six. We wish them all the best of health, happiness and love.

Nervous Boy Slips Note To Officer. When Cop Sees It He Immediately Jumps Out Of His Seat

With all they see, it takes something pretty different to shock a police officer, but a nine-year-old Florida boy named Noah managed to do just that.

Noah and his mom were eating breakfast in a Lakeland, Florida, restaurant when in walked police officer Eddie Benitez. The little boy wanted to approach Officer Benitez, but he is shy and didn’t dare talk to him directly.

Noah’s mother, Amanda Cantin, could tell her son wanted to go over to the officer, but she wasn’t sure why. Then Noah told her he had an idea, but he needed her help.

Noah told her he wanted to pay the officer’s bill with his birthday money. With help from his mother and their waiter, Noah had Officer Benitez’s receipt in his small hands.

He then wrote a message on the back that read: “I want to be you when I grow up. Thank you for your service.” Dashing to the officer’s table, Noah set down the receipt and returned to his mother.

Officer Benitez picked up his receipt and read the note scrolled on the back. Emotionally moved by the youngster’s message, Officer Benitez hurried to their table. Later, Amanda and Noah recounted the surprise on the officer’s face as he read Noah’s note.

The officer thanked his admirer and requested a picture with him.

The Lakeland Police department shared this touching encounter between officer and young boy on their Facebook page. They wanted to honor Noah for his good deed and future aspirations.

Since the age of five, the little boy has wanted to be a cop. Noah knows what he wants in life, and he isn’t afraid to say it: “I’m going to make the world a better place and capture the bad guys,” he declared.

We think Noah’s gesture reaffirmed Officer Benitez’s faith in his job. Benitez spoke of what Noah’s actions meant to him: “It meant everything. It meant that I’m supposed to wake up every morning and put on this uniform and go out there and do what I do. You know? It means that I need to keep trying to be a good example to all these young guys,” he said.

We are so touched and moved by Noah’s kindness. He’s well on his way to becoming a good citizen!

This Mom’s Son Died An Hour After He Swam At The Pool. I Had No Idea This Was Possible.

In this article you will read about the story of Johnny Jackson who went to cool off and swim at the neighborhood pool. His mom, Cassandra watched how her son enjoyed in the cool water. One hour later, when they went home, John said that he is a little bit tired and sleepy.

She was thinking that her son is tired because of the water and the heat. He fell asleep and later when Cassandra went to wake him up, she saw the most appalling thing for every parent.

John didn’t show any signs of life and there was some substance like white foam on his face. Later, the examiner noted that the cause of death is suffocation of drowning.  Everybody were asking how can healthy and young boy drown one hour after swimming?

Cassandra was astonished and shocked. She didn’t realize how can her son talk or walk with lungs filled with water. What she didn’t know is that there is something called dry-drowning. This is a delayed type of drowning and is dangerous as the momentary type of drowning.

The first signs of dry-drowning are rapid changes in the kid’s behavior, hard breathing and excessive tiredness. In case you see any of these signs after swimming, you should take your child in the hospital as soon as possible.

Every second is important for the younger children. A doctor will intubate your child. This means that air will be compressed in the child’s lungs and the water will be ejected out. The most serious thing is that the lungs need to be filled in with air and absorb the oxygen. The capacity to do this process is limited and suspended, and combined with water it can result with death.

The postponed drowning is not that rare as you may think. Did you know that 10-15% of all drowning deaths are credited to dry-drowning? Yet there are many people who have never heard of it which means that they will never recognize the symptoms of this type of drowning.

Mom Leaves 6-Year-Old Alone With Newborn Baby…What Happens Next…

Bringing a new baby home always has its fair share of challenges and difficulties. Suddenly life as you knew it is not the same and everyone has to adjust to having a new – and very needy – person in the house.

One of the biggest fears moms of multiple children face is how their older kids will react to the new baby. Will they take to their new sibling or will jealousy come between them?

While I’m sure that was at least a thought in this mom’s mind, after walking in on this precious scene she knew right away she need never have worried.

She walked out of the room for just a moment and left her newborn son in the care of his six-year-old brother. When she walked back in, what she found made her heart melt.

Her older son had begun to sing “No One Like You” by John Denver to the baby, and it is one of the most precious things we have ever seen!

“I like your eyes. I like your nose. I like your mouth, your ear, your hand, your toes,” he sang.

At one point he looked up and realized his mom was watching, but that didn’t stop him from finishing the sweet lullaby.

“There’s no one, no one exactly like you,” he sang to his brother.

We know this little baby is going to have a loving and loyal protector in his older brother! A sweet and precious friendship that will continue for the rest of their lives!

Did you love watching this precious boy sing to his baby brother as much as we did? So share this!

5-Year-Old Calls 911- “He can’t hardly breathe”Amazing

Savannah is a five-year-old girl that has a very special talent. That talent showed up when her father was having problems breathing. They were at home together at their Hancock County, Indiana property and she dialed 911 on her own. She talked to the 911 operator, Jason Bonham and it turns out that it is one of the cutest calls of all time.

The operator assured Savannah that everything was going to be okay and that help was coming. She was relaying the information to her father but she wonders if it is okay if she and her father stay in their pajamas. People are going to be coming into the house any minute, after all, and she wants to be ready for them.

The operator tells her to stay by her father’s side but she is insistent that she wants to go to her room and put on something else. He is trying to keep her focused until the ambulance arrives. At that point, she starts introducing the family dog to the operator who is ‘friendly but barks a lot’.

This is a conversation that you really need to listen to in order to appreciate it. You may never have the opportunity to sit in on a 911 switchboard but if you did, a little girl like this would make your day.

Mom In Labor Thinks Doctor Is Acting Strange, Then She Looks At His Feet And Sees It

We put a lot of trust in our doctors. We expect them to know what they’re doing, act professionally, and help take care of them.

That’s what Las Vegas mom Alex Sims expected when she went into labor, but when her doctor walked in it was clear something was off.

Alex’s actual doctor was on vacation, so she was told on-call obstetrician and gynecologist Dr. Frank DeLee would be helping her deliver her baby instead.

When he came in the room, though, Alex’s mom, Sheree, said she could smell alcohol on his breath. Then Dr. DeLee started talking about how he had just come from happy hour.

“I smelled alcohol,” Sheree recalled. “That’s what preceded the conversation about him coming from the bar. Because I said, ‘Oh, he smells like alcohol.’”

She began to film the doctor with her cell phone, and what she captured is truly alarming.

“Wasn’t that many people in the bar when I left,” he told one of the nurses.

“I’m sorry. Did you waste a drink?” she asked.

They then began to banter about his preferred choice of alcohol – tequila – and one of the nurses commented that DeLee had “been at happy hour since he left my C-section.”

That’s when Sheree noticed something that truly shocked her – under DrLee’s gown he was barefoot and wearing Bermuda shorts!

Then things got even worse.

“I kept telling the doctor, ‘I can feel everything. I think the epidural wore off,’” Alex recalled. “And he’s like, ‘Oh just scoot your fat ass down,’ and, ‘Oh, I bet you wish your doctor would have came back in town.’”

“It was just jaw-dropping,” she said later. “I just couldn’t fathom why all this was going on in the midst of me having a child.”

If all of that weren’t bad enough, when Alex’s son, Jared, finally came out, it was clear there was something wrong with his arm. Doctors later determined that DeLee’s rough delivery had caused Erb’s Palsy – paralysis of the arm due to nerve damage.

Alex now has a lawsuit against DeLee, as well as the nurses, who should have intervened when they realized the doctor was not fit to be working.

She has since learned that this was not the first time DeLee has been accused of malpractice. In 2012, he settled a case of “negligent vaginal delivery resulting in shoulder dystocia,” and also has another half dozen reports of possible malpractice that have involved insurance payouts totaling more than $2.7 million.

Now Alex is seeking not only justice for her and her baby. She wants to make sure DeLee can’t be in the position to hurt anyone else.

“Someone needs to be accountable,” she said.  “And I just feel like, if I don’t speak up for my child, who will?”

The 17-year-old slept at a friend’s place. The next morning, nothing was the…

Cody Dietz from York, Pennsylvania, was a typical teenager. As a 17-year-old he liked to hang out with his friends and often had sleepovers. That had been the case when one night, something happened that changed his life forever.

Cody’s mom Bonnie tried to reach her son on his cell phone to find out when he was expecting to get home and he didn’t answer. When a short while later he still hadn’t returned the call, she knew that something was wrong. She tried reaching him again and again but he didn’t pick up. Bonnie started to panic.

You can find out more about Cody’s story in this video:

Finally Cody’s father’s phone rang, but it wasn’t Cody calling. It was Cody’s friend who told them that Cody couldn’t stand up and was mumbling unintelligibly. Holding the phone to Cody’s mouth, all his father heard was a gurgling noise coming from the other end.

Cody’s parents knew something was seriously amiss, so an ambulance was soon on its way. When the paramedics arrived, they first suspected that Cody had suffered a stroke. He was immediately taken to the closest hospital in a rescue helicopter and there their suspicions were confirmed. The hospital neurologist, Dr. Ray Rechwein, was extremely concerned about Cody’s condition: “The timeline of the diagnosis is key. Many of the therapies have the best outcome when done within six hours. Cody’s delay in diagnosis was close to 12 hours,” he explained. Cody was in critical condition and an MRT scan showed that he had had a stroke on the left side of his brain. He only had a 20% chance of survival.

The time that had passed between Cody’s stroke and his arrival at the hospital made it necessary for doctors to perform a complicated surgery that required the removal of the top of his skull to relieve the pressure on his brain. They would also lower Cody’s body temperature to 33 °C (91 °F), a procedure used on patients undergoing open heart surgery or brain surgery. The cooling of the body reduces the brain’s oxygen consumption and prevents brain cells from dying. After the operation, Cody spent three weeks in an induced coma while his parents feared for his life.

While Bonnie sat at her son’s bedside and tried not to give up hope, she remembered that Cody had shown symptoms a week before suffering the stroke. He had spoken slowly and slurred his words and she had noticed constant trembling in his limbs. Now the reason for this strange behavior was clear.

When doctors revived Cody from the coma, the extent of the damage caused by the stroke was obvious: the right side of his body was paralyzed and he could no longer speak or write. Doctors told the family that his rehabilitation would take a very long time and they shouldn’t expect him to make a complete recovery.

But then something very unexpected happened: only four weeks after the stroke, Cody surprised everyone when he was able to speak again, and after two years of intensive rehabilitation, he was back to perfect health!

After this harrowing experience, Cody has dedicated himself to educating other teens and their parents about the symptoms that can be the warning signs for an oncoming stroke. “I wish I would’ve gone to a doctor before my stroke, but who knew?” Cody reflected. His mother Bonnie has also been trying to raise awareness about the risks and the symptoms to look out for, which include a feeling of faintness, facial paralysis, slurred speech and vision problems. “My advice to parents is don’t ignore any signs your kid may have,” Bonnie warned.

The biggest problem with strokes is that they are so difficult for people to recognize. Many assume that only older people can suffer a stroke and ignore the symptoms when they appear in younger people and children. The tragic irony of this is that doctors have actually noticed an increase in the number stroke cases among teens and children and believe it may be caused by increasingly unhealthy lifestyles. Many teens smoke, drink alcohol, and take drugs believing that nothing can harm them and many of them find out the hard way that they are not “immortal” after all. When teens and their parents are more aware of the risks and can identify the symptoms, hopefully strokes can be prevented or at least dealt with before it’s too late.
