It’s actually not at all uncommon for news helicopters in cities that have them to lend a hand when covering an incident. There’s usually a lot more cooperation in the sky than you might think.
IF ELEPHANTS never forget then this swift rescue of a drowning elephant calf by two adult elephants will be a lesson in pool safety the family of gentle giants will be sure to remember.
It’s amazing footage because of the clear cooperation between these two animals working together to save the calf. They’re much more intelligent than most would give them credit for.
“If he didn’t have any help, I don’t know what would have happened to him.”
The person who passed this along(*) commented “There is still hope for this country!” Absolutely! I’ll also amplify that in two ways: 1) there’s still hope for this planet: good news transcends all borders, and 2) these types of things continue to happen all the time, they’re just … under-reported. Hence: Not All News Is Bad.
(*) Sure, I take suggestions, though I generally don’t have too much trouble coming with good news on my own – it’s out there, if you know where to look, my job is to give it greater visibility. If you run across something you think represents some good news that more people should see just reply to one of these with a link to the original source. I can’t guarantee I’ll use everything I get — heck, I can’t even really tell you what my specific criteria are – but I generally know it when I see it. Please do make sure it’s from a legitimate news source and relatively recent.
It can take all night for this mountain park’s search and rescue team to find missing hikers – but thanks to new drone technology, a recent search was over in a matter of hours.
Drones are actually hamstrung in many jurisdictions due to privacy and other concerns. Let’s hope that this great example of their value helps make them become more generally usable by search and rescue.
When a man pulled his truck into a Buffalo, New York auto repair shop, the workers were stunned into silence.
Another case of the worst bringing out the best. I love that there was simply no question … this wrong had to be made right, and everyone dropped what they were doing to make it so.
Different types of equine or horse therapy have been shown to be beneficial for many different situations. It’s great to see it available for these deserving vets, and a great bonus that it can benefit the horses as well.
HuffPost UK has spoken to some of the capital’s amazingly generous residents.
I’m sensing a tagline for Not All News Is Bad, since I seem to use it often, and I’m sure I’ll say it again: The worst in us brings out the best in us.
A park of inclusion.
What a wonderful idea.
The gesture “has inspired so many and touched the hearts of thousands.”
Quoting the person who posted it on Facebook: “A small act of kindness, coincidentally captured in three quick photos, has inspired so many and touched the hearts of thousands.”
My favorite quote is at the end of the article: “He’s 95 years old and he’s a World War II veteran, … He’s a hero. In our eyes he’s our hero.” Indeed, as are the police officers and everyone who stepped in to help.
