This has the appearance of a contrived propaganda video where there was another aircraft there to make a video of it.

Furthermore, the incident was not mentioned in the mainstream media which further implies it was contrived.

Nah...if you are gonna send a helicopter that many miles out, best to have back up which likely also had to refuel on that Navy ship.

Fortunately, no blacks were strangled, shot or otherwise harmed in the making of this white supremacist video.

A video has emerged from Cozumel, Mexico of a man flipping over a sea turtle that had become stuck on its back.

In the clip, filmed in July 2017, the man turns the large reptile over so that it can haul itself back into the sea.

"I thought she was dead then she started blinking her eyes. I had to help," the filmer wrote online.

"While on vacation in Cozumel, I wanted to see the sunrise. I was hiking along the beach, and I discovered the stranded sea turtle. I had to help. I turned her back over and followed her to the sea. It was a perfect sunrise."

Video shows the intense moments when a Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy helped save an infant's life in Palmdale.

Security camera footage from May 31 shows two women run across a supermarket parking lot in the 3000 block of Ranch Vista Boulevard and frantically approach Deputy Cameron Kinsey with a child in distress.

The child had stopped breathing and lost consciousness while the women were at a park for a demonstration, authorities said.

Kinsey ran toward the women and performed a "mouth sweep" with his finger and dislodged vomit from the child.

The child began to breathe and was alert again. Paramedics arrived shortly to treat the infant, who was taken to a hospital.

The 11-month-old boy had swallowed a coin blocking his airway. Kinsey's move turned the coin sideways, saving the child's life.

You should consider forming a team to flip Trump supporters off their backs and letting them escape to the sea of real life.

I had the chance to do a good thing today.

:giggle:

Was coming out of the supermarket late arvo heading for my car, and there was a vacant car space in front of where I was heading. I noticed what looked like a wallet lying there plain as day. Picked it up, put my shopping in the car then took the wallet back to the desk at the supermarket. Had a quick look inside.. very nice leather... the guys license ... a trucker.... was there, and there was still $5 in the bill fold, plus all his cards.
I'd just left the store, so I went back in, approached the Help Lady, explained how I'd found it just lying there.. she was very happy to get it.

Then I was returning to my vehicle when I saw a man walking purposely and concernedly towards the entrance. He looked like the guy...!! So I said to him .. are you a truck driver.? YES.. Lost your wallet?. YES. It's OK just handed it in. You look like the guy on the license.

He was happy.!
