I don’t believe in coincidences.

In a powerful moment captured on video, a Minnesota firefighters’ 9/11 memorial display had a very fitting visitor:

An American eagle.

The Andover Fire Department was preparing their tribute to their fallen brothers and sisters who responded to the World Trade Center following the September 11 terrorist attacks when Fire Chief Jerry Streich noticed the eagle landing atop their display.

“Look what landed on top of the aerial on 9/11,” Streich says in the video. “Isn’t that unbelievable? This eagle just landed on the aerial while we were doing the 9/11 memorial. Phenomenal.”

Local KARE 11 reports:

The fire truck, which was parked on the Highway 10 bridge, was holding an American flag to honor and remember those who lost their lives on 9/11. While the Andover Fire Department — along with several surrounding departments — held their tribute, an eagle perched at the top of the aerial truck, creating a chill-inducing moment.

“There’s no better symbol to represent America today than a flag but then for an eagle to land on a fire truck holding a flag, I mean, it doesn’t get much more symbolic than that,” Streich said.

“I had to look at it a few times,” he added, of the moment he first noticed the eagle. “And then I thought, I need to videotape this!”

The video was captured by Fire Chief Jerry Streich, Andover Fire Department #ATeam and has reached over 9.8 million views as of 9/17. To reach Chief J.Streich, contact at 763.767.5192

When it comes to the animal kingdom, there are few beasts more frightening than those in the gorilla family. Their sheer strength is conveyed by their hulking and brutally-muscled bodies, which are capable of producing power at a rate nine times that of man.  Scientists have indicated that a Silverback Gorilla may be capable of lifting up to 1.800 pounds of dead weight. That’s nearly the curb weight of a ultra-compact car. Knowing what we know about these creatures, it stands to reason that almost nothing in the natural world would disturb or deter them…. ….except for maybe a little rain. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8c0YlhgUNFU These gorillas from a zoo in South Carolina have met their match in rain shower, in the above clip which has gone viral this week. The prancing primates were all the rage on Twitter as well. https://twitter.com/cwwaters/status/1127678279740268545 https://twitter.com/MaireCervenak/status/1127533108130189313 https://twitter.com/pg21707/status/1127477442157871105 Some have pointed out, however, that wild gorilla will enjoy a good rain from time to time, leading some to believe that these apes may just be a bit spoiled. https://twitter.com/immellocker/status/1127492640293957633

VIDEO: Cancer Survivor’s First Pitch Ended Up a Low Blow

While the catcher wasn’t able to snag the throw, a camera man just happened to be in the line of fire… in a most unfortunate way.

One of the most wince-inducing first pitches ever occurred at Fenway this week. It wasn’t wince-inducing because it was a bad pitch, per se. It was wince-inducing for where it ended up. Jordan Leandre was invited to throw out the first pitch during Wednesday’s Boston Red Sox-St. Louis Cardinals game at Fenway Park because he is a 17-year-old cancer survivor. Clearly he wasn’t invited for his baseball skills. The teen stepped up to the mound and wound up to let loose a bit of a wild throw toward home plate if not exactly AT home plate. The pitch went high and wide, high enough to fly out of reach for the catcher. But while the catcher wasn’t able to snag the throw, a camera man just happened to be in the line of fire… in a most unfortunate way. Leandre’s pitch nailed Lawrence Eagle photographer Tony Capobianco right in the worst place possible. This video is not to be missed: Wowie. Leandre’s face after the disastrous throw says it all.
