There was a woman at the station who had her nine-month-old baby, Daniel, in a stroller.  She turned for a second to tend to her other kids . . . and the stroller ROLLED ONTO THE TRACKS.  The train was bearing down . . . and Delroy didn’t hesitate.  He jumped down onto the tracks and picked up Daniel while the train operator jammed on the brakes.  The train stopped just FEET from Delroy and Daniel.  And it would’ve run the baby over if Delroy hadn’t jumped down to save it. The baby was taken to the hospital for some cuts and bruises.  Delroy played it extraordinarily humble . . . he said, quote, “Everybody is making me out to be some sort of superhero . . . anybody in that situation should’ve done what I did.” Even though Delroy missed that interview, he had another one yesterday . . . and got the job.  He was hired to do maintenance at JFK Airport and was given a starting salary of $9.50 an hour . . . $2 more than the usual starting salary.

The moment Junior Alexander Guy activated his very first cell phone, calls started rolling in. He was threatened, harassed and accused of murder at all hours of the day and night.”You deserve to die,” the callers would say. “You murderer!” Turns out that T-Mobile had given Guy the cell phone number formerly used by George Zimmerman — the man who in February shot and killed Trayvon Martin in Florida. When Zimmerman’s 911 tape was released, so was his number: 407-435-2400. Zimmerman got rid of the number and it was given to 49-year-old Guy, who got his first cell phone on May 7.

After Frank was told that his lung cancer had spread to his heart and he had only months to live, he and his wife Wilma sold their house, canceled their health insurance, and put together a bucket list of things they wanted to do before death parted them. But after spending all their money, plus several thousand dollars more, the Kiwi couple learned the bittersweet truth: Frank was just fine. “I’m short on my credit cards for 80,000 [New Zealand dollars] and the money we had left went on a business and that didn’t work out so we are broke,” Wilma said. In addition to letting their house go at a significant loss, taking expensive trips to Australia and Fiji, and going on lavish spending sprees, Frank also started smoking and drinking coffee — two things he quit after being told he had cancer. The pair didn’t worry about getting into debt because they figured Frank’s life insurance would cover it. They returned to Wairoa to pass what they thought were their last days together. “If the pain got too bad I was going to kill myself, but the pain never came … everyone was surprised I was still alive.In fact, Frank’s health was improving: In December 2011, nearly two years after he was diagnosed with terminal cancer, an ultrasound revealed that Frank was cancer-free.

Eric Reinert, a 22-year-old Minnesota man, has had to learn to walk all over again after contracting rat lungworm disease in Hawaii.

Reinert, who was in Hawaii’s Puna district to learn about organic farming, told WCCO that the illness began with stomach cramps.

Dallas has owned a store called Dallas Jewelers in Louisville, Kentucky for more than 35 years, and offers the balloon rides for $425 as part of an engagement package.
