While the police have been vilified in the mainstream media as of late, there are still a vast majority of law enforcement officers out there whose “protect and serve” ethos is intact.

Thanks to the quick thinking of one Texas police officer, in fact, a despondent young man is still alive…despite his attempted suicide from a highway overpass in Arlington.

Body cam footage posted on Arlington Police Chief Will Johnson’s Twitter page shows the moment that Arlington Police Corporal Deric Sheriff figured out a plan for a passerby truck driver to park his 18 wheeler directly under a young man, positioning on an overpass, who was “contemplating jumping.”

“You wanna pull underneath the bridge and park under the bridge in case he decides to jump, he’ll land on the trailer?” Cpl. Sheriff is heard saying to the truck driver, Dwayne Crawford, on the video.

The officer lamented that it took several moments to find a suitable tractor trailer for his rescue mission, as the highway was littered with flatbeds at the crucial moment.  The lower height of these haulers wouldn’t have made enough of a difference for the suicidal young person, and a full sized, box-style truck just happened to pull around in the nick of time.

Crawford arrived with his rig in the nick of time.

“As soon as I went under and started under the bridge, I looked up. The young man looks down at me, and I thought, ‘Oh, man. He’s serious,’” Crawford told KDFW. “As soon as I got under the bridge with my tractor and got the trailer under it, I felt a thump.”

And, because you just have to see it to believe it:

WATCH: Tiny Pup Protects 12 Year-Old Owner from Vicious Wild Animal

GOOD DOG!

Published

There are times in every dog owner’s life in which man looks down at beast and wonders just how peculiar and unique this relationship really is.

There are no companion animals more attuned to the human existence than our dogs.  (I’m sorry, horse-owners, but y’all come in a close second).

These are members of the family who feel a duty and nobility about doing the dirty, animalistic work of the group…no matter the size.

In Toronto this week, a young girl and her small dog made big news.

An incredibly brave little Yorkie defended its owner, a 10-year-old girl, from a coyote that attacked the pair while out for a neighborhood walk in Toronto this week.

The Yorkshire terrier, who the family rescued six years ago, suffered “extremely serious tissue injuries to her spine and her leg,” Dorothy Kwan, 10-year-old Lily Kwan’s mother, wrote on a crowdfunding page to raise money for the veterinarian bills.

“You can see our dog putting herself between my daughter and the coyote,” Dorothy Kwan wrote. “Even after she was seriously injured, she continued to bark and chase the coyote away. She fought back.”

The entire scene was captured on video:

The underdog yorkie did spend some time in a canine ICU, but returned home after a few days with 40 stitches and one heck of a story.

Joey Chestnut’s Gutsy Performance Breaks Another Hot Dog Eating Record

A feat unmatched for Chestnut, who is growing accustomed to the glory.

Published

on

One of the 4th of July’s most time-honored traditions may also be one of its zaniest, and this year was no exception.

Every Independence Day, the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest amazes spectators and onlookers alike, as the larger-than-life characters of the professional eating world take the stage for what is widely considered the ultimate test of their “sport”.

And no, this isn’t the rinky-dink affair that you might find at your local frankfurter spot.  The pageantry and fanfare are unparalleled, as evidenced by the introduction afforded to the world’s most prolific hot dog downer.

And, if you thought for one second that Chestnut was going to phone it in in 2021, you’d be dead wrong.

Chowdown champ Joey “Jaws” Chestnut broke his own record to gulp to a 14th win in the men’s Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest on Sunday, while Michelle Lesco took the women’s title. Chestnut downed 76 franks and buns in 10 minutes. That’s one more than he did in setting the men’s record last year, when the contest unfolded without fans because of the coronavirus pandemic. “It just felt good,” Chestnut, of Westfield, Indiana, said in an ESPN interview after his win Sunday. “Even if I was uncomfortable, having everybody cheer me and push me, it made me feel good.” Lesco, of Tucson, Arizona, downed 30¾ dogs in 10 minutes and called her win “an amazing feeling.” Reigning women’s champ and record-holder Miki Sudo skipped this year because she’s expecting a baby in a few weeks with fellow competitive eater Nick Wehry.
