VEGAS VICTIM HAS EMOTIONAL REUNION WITH HIS HERO
Tragedy often brings out the best in people, and nowhere was that more evident than Sunday night in Las Vegas when hundreds of concertgoers jumped into action to save strangers' lives.
When bullets started flying, Tom McIntosh ran like everybody else and helped his wife and another woman escape over a wall. But just before he could get away, he was shot in the leg. He still managed to make it over the wall, but he was bleeding profusely.
Suddenly, James Lawson stopped to help. Lawson, an Army Reservist, used a belt as a makeshift tourniquet to stop the bleeding and stayed with him for about 10 minutes until he was able to load McIntosh onto a pickup truck and drive him to the hospital.
McIntosh credited Lawson with saving his life. Yesterday, McIntosh was being interviewed by Savannah Guthrie of the Today show and said he would love an opportunity to thank Lawson again in person. That's when Lawson surprised him and the two men had an emotional reunion on live TV.
10-YEAR-OLD SPENT SUMMER HANDING OUT LUNCHES TO THE HOMELESS
A 10-year-old boy in Massachusetts made the most of his summer vacation this year by handing out lunches to the homeless.
Liam Hannon and his father, Scott, launched the charity project, which they called "Liam’s Lunches of Love." Each week, Liam and Scott would make 20 lunches and then walk the streets of Cambridge, handing out the food along with bottles of water.
Over the summer months, the father and son handed out a total of 300 lunches.
Scott is understandably proud of Liam and happy that Liam’s big heart was able to touch so many people over the past months. (WBZ-TV)
MYSTERY COUPLE REGULARLY PAYS FOR DINERS' MEALS AT APPLEBEE’S
Some customers of an Applebee’s restaurant in Pennsylvania have been surprised when their meals have been paid for by a husband and wife, who have – so far – remained anonymous.
At least a few times each month, this mystery couple has been paying the tab for strangers.
Employees of the restaurant say the husband and wife sit at the counter three or four times each week and sometimes, when their meal is over, cover the check for another table along with theirs.
One of these gifts was for big party of 16.
The employees and the manager of the Applebee’s know the identity of the mystery couple, but are protecting the secret in hopes of keeping this touching – and fun – thing going. (KDKA-TV)
