American Airlines Employees Save Two Lives in One Day (Freak Files)
An American Airlines Employee Saved Two Lives in One Day
This is exactly the kind of GOOD press United Airlines could use, unfortunately, they have nothing to do with the story . . .
26-year-old Christofer Hatcu works as a customer service manager for American Airlines in Charlotte. And he was working back in January when an older guy COLLAPSED and went into cardiac arrest.
Luckily, Chris was trained as a firefighter before he started working for American. So he did CPR until paramedics showed up, and ended up saving the guy's life.
A few minutes after that, the paramedics told him ANOTHER person had just had a heart attack about ten gates down. So Chris ran to their gate, did CPR again, and saved their life TOO.
Paul Gonnelli was the first guy he saved. He nominated Chris for something called the Real American Hero Award, and he got it this week along with $1,000.
The paramedics say neither of the people would have survived if Chris hadn't jumped in to help.
A Walmart Manager Has Been Charged For Staging a Robbery Where He Got Shot
A guy named Ansar Ali Younis was an assistant manager at a Walmart in Laurel, Maryland back in 2012.
On November 14th of that year, a guy came into the store, demanded all the cash they had on hand, and SHOT Ansar in the arm.
Well . . . after a long investigation, the cops and FBI figured out what REALLY happened. Ansar was actually IN on the plan with the robber and, yeah, he figured that if he took the gunshot they'd never suspect he was involved.
But they DID. And now, he and his buddy who shot him have been indicted for robbery conspiracy, aiding and abetting, wire fraud, and more.
The Golden Gate Bridge Is Finally Installing a Giant Net to Stop Suicides
The Golden Gate Bridge was opened 80 years ago, and since then, more than 1,500 people have committed SUICIDE by jumping off. That's an average of almost 19 people a year.
Last year alone there were 39 suicide jumps off the Golden Gate Bridge, and officers stopped another 184 people who were trying.
Well, San Francisco is FINALLY doing something about it. On Thursday, construction started on a NET about 20 feet down that should catch anyone who jumps off. It will cost $200 million of federal, state, and local taxes and should be finished within four years.
And yes, it's worth it to save all those lives. A study out of Harvard found that nine out of 10 people who try to commit suicide and fail do NOT try to kill themselves again.
