Good News: Babies, Chimps, and First Responders

Here are a few more good news stories making the rounds.

1.  A ten-year-old girl in Missouri named “Miracle” called 911 last month when her mom went into labor three weeks early, and helped deliver the baby herself.  Now she says she might want to be a doctor when she grows up.  Her baby sister Jayla is doing great.  (Here’s a photo.)

2.  Speaking of newborns:  Have you seen the video of a chimpanzee being reunited with her baby at a zoo in Kansas last week?  Zookeepers had to do an emergency C-section on Tuesday, and they were separated for two days.

They put the baby in the mom’s pen on Thursday, and let her in.  It took 20 seconds before she realized he was there.  Then she immediately rushed in and hugged him.  Even the zookeeper filming it started crying.  (Here’s the video.  It happens at :28.)

 

3.  Remember the plane that crash-landed on a golf course in Wisconsin last week with over 50 shelter dogs on board?  Some of them have already been adopted, by the first responders who helped save them.

4.  A 23-year-old guy near Vancouver got busted for drunk driving last Wednesday and will lose his license for three months.  But instead of being a drunken jerk like we’re used to, he thanked the cop for stopping him and gave him a hug.
