Good News: Jury Duty, Heroic Dads, and “Nextdoor” Neighbors
Here are a few more good news stories making the rounds . . .
1. A 69-year-old in Colorado named Shirley Bennet is happy she got called for jury duty last month, because it saved her life. She was at the courthouse when she had a stroke and collapsed with no pulse. But deputies were quickly able to do CPR. She went back last week to thank them in person.
2. A dad in Australia jumped in front of a snake to save his two-year-old daughter. It bit his foot, but he got to a hospital and he’s okay. He thinks it was an eastern brown snake, Australia’s deadliest type. They’re venomous enough to kill small kids, and sometimes adults.
3. A 44-year-old guy in England named Chris Place signed up for the app Nextdoor last year to look for yard sale type stuff. And he ended up chatting with a 42-year-old woman named Michelle Tooby.
It turned out they lived right next door to each other . . . and had lived within a 10-minute walk their whole lives . . . but they’d never met. So they got to talking, started dating, and now they’re in love.
