Jeff Smith was trying to pull a stump out of his garden when his muddy boot slipped off the clutch. The tractor flipped, and the steering wheel pinned his chest to the ground.
His daughters, 16-year-old Hannah and 14-year-old Haylee, heard him screaming and ran to help. They reportedly lifted the tractor enough to free his torso and give him room to breathe. Hannah got on her four-wheeler and found a neighbor, who brought his own tractor and used its shovel to finish freeing Smith. He’s doing remarkably well and was just treated for a broken wrist and minor injuries.
A kayaker in California is being called a hero for rescuing a family after their SUV veered off the road and landed in the middle of a river on Saturday. The SUV carrying three children and their parents went out of control and slammed into a concrete mile marker, a tree and a boulder before coming to rest in the middle of the American River near Sacramento, according to authorities.
Mark Divittori happened to be kayaking in that part of the river when the crash happened.
The mangled vehicle plunged into the river just yards behind his kayak. The three children were able to unbuckle their seatbelts and get out of the vehicle so that Divittori could get them to safety. In another stroke of good luck, a fire truck was nearby and was able to get to the family in just three minutes to rescue the parents. El Dorado County firefighters used a life jacket to keep the father's head above water while they cut the roof off the SUV, said Fire Marshal Mike Pott.
An Italian Greyhound named Dauz spent eight months on the lam. His owners believe he was stolen and then went missing, only to turn up last month at an animal shelter in Fairfax, Virginia. He was reunited after the Virginia shelter scanned the digital identification chip implanted in the dog’s neck and notified the family. His owner says Dauz appears happy to be home...and they’re thrilled to have him back!

Billy's grandson, Will, says Billy is preparing hard for his sermon scheduled for November 2013 and started filming for “My Hope America with Billy Graham.”
He can’t see or hear very well so he’s trying to memorize and get things just right for the few minutes he’ll be on camera. “My Hope with Billy Graham” is a massive evangelistic effort to take place throughout November in honor of his 95th birthday, November 7th, in which Christ followers will ask their friends who don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus to their home for a meal and invite them to watch the TV broadcast of “My Hope America with Billy Graham.”
