VIDEO: Police Officer Frees Trapped Mother by Lifting Entire Car by Himself

And just months after receiving an award for saving two people from a burning building.

Many Americans grew up with a number of stories, some being urban legends,  centering around the human psyche’s ability to push our anatomy past its limits in profound and wild ways.

For instance, there is the story of Aaron Ralston, who was forced to use a pocket knife to remove his own arm after being pinned under a boulder during a hiking incident.  The event was later turned into a movie starring James Franco, after the tale gained widespread publicity.

And let’s not forget about those who train themselves to withstand the elements in ever-more daring ways.  Wim Hof is but one example, using breathing and meditative techniques to put his body into wildly uncomfortable situations without batting so much as an eye.

And then there’s the one story that we’ve all heard a million times:  An average individual who, bolstered by adrenaline, is able to move an entire vehicle by themselves in order to save someone else.

This week, a prime of example of this feat of strength was broadcast to the world.

A deputy in Virginia single-handedly lifted an overturned car to free a woman pinned underneath. In a bodycam recording that the Gloucester County Sheriff’s Office shared Tuesday on Facebook, Deputy Jon Holt can be heard pulling over in his patrol vehicle and telling dispatch that the car is “flipped upside down.” The one-minute clip at the scene of the accident on May 7 then shows Holt running to the vehicle, where one child is screaming that his mother is stuck, per the AP. The deputy helps another smaller child out of the car, and then he can be heard groaning as he lifts the vehicle. “The driver was laying underneath the vehicle with her head pinned by the sunroof,” the sheriff’s office wrote on Facebook. “Seeing the trauma her child was witnessing, Deputy J. Holt went into overdrive.”

The video, while heroic, can be a little difficult to watch:

The officer was heralded as a hero in the incident, which came after he was already awarded a high honor for his selflessness in saving two individuals from a burning building last year.

McAfee Dead in Prison After Repeatedly Declaring He Would Not Kill Himself

Social media users were quick to remind the world of McAfee’s own words.

John McAfee is a computing legend, having pioneered the way in which systems and networks protect themselves from viruses, malware, spyware, and all the other assorted evils of this internet age. But now he lies dead, having allegedly committed suicide in a Spanish prison cell. Antivirus software tycoon John McAfee died by an apparent suicide in a Spanish jail cell Wednesday evening — hours after reports surfaced that he would be extradited to face federal charges in the US, according to local media. The eccentric tech entrepreneur was arrested in October and was awaiting extradition when he was found dead, police sources told the newspaper El Pais. The newspaper reported McAfee was pulled from his cell in Barcelona and police are investigating the circumstances around his death. Authorities aren’t shying away from calling it a suicide already. “Everything points to suicide,” the newspaper reported, citing justice department officials in the country. A second Spanish newspaper, El Mundo, also reported McAfee had died by an apparent suicide in the jail. But here is where it gets strange:  McAfee has been utterly insistent and consistent about the fact that he would never, ever take his own life, explicitly telling his followers on social media that, should he ever be found dead of suicide, he was killed. https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1316801215083225096?s=20 https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1200864283766251521?s=20 https://twitter.com/truthcrumbs/status/1407788935628079113?s=20 The investigation is ongoing at this time.

Lab Finds Zero Fish DNA After Testing Subway’s Tuna Sandwich

You can “eat fresh” at Subway, but can you eat fish?

For years we’ve told ourselves that there has to be a better way to do fast food.  Or, at the very least, a healthier way. And so new chains are constantly popping up, while the old staples adapt.  There are salads for sale as places like McDonald’s these days, which is something that kids who grew up in the 80’s might have had a hard time believing would ever occur. In the realm of healthy fast food, there is but one king:  The unbreakable Subway.  Not only did the brand survive having a pedophile as their spokesperson, but they currently operate more physical restaurants in the world than even the aforementioned burger purveyor. But an alarming new study has some wondering if, while they were “eating fresh” with a tuna sub, they were even eating fish. The New York Times published a report Sunday, which revealed that lab tests didn’t find “amplifiable tuna DNA” in Subway’s infamous tuna sandwich. NYT submitted “60 inches worth of Subway tuna sandwiches” from three separate Los Angeles locations for lab analysis in wake of the lawsuit filed earlier this year alleging the sandwich chain was serving customers “a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna.” The suit claims that independent lab tests showed the company meant to “imitate” tuna’s appearance by blending together these unknown ingredients. The study, commissioned by NYT, failed to not only identify tuna DNA, but the lab couldn’t even determine the origins of the fish in the provided sandwiches. “No amplifiable tuna DNA was present in the sample and so we obtained no amplification products from the DNA. Therefore, we cannot identify the species,” the results read. But it’s not all bad news: “There’s two conclusions. One, it’s so heavily processed that whatever we could pull out, we couldn’t make an…
