"I fall really really far", 4-year-old, Dylan Hayes told a television news station after miraculously surviving a fall of three stories in which the child turned over twice before landing on his feet.

The local television news station reported that the young Dylan was standing on the living room sofa that was moved near the window trying to talk to his neighbors downstairs when he fell out.

"I was terrified," his mother, Jessica Hayes told the television news station. "I did not know what I was going to see when I got to the ground floor," she added.

She had moved the couch next to the window because she was shampooing the carpet in the living room, she told the television news station.

Hayes also said that it must have been her longest trip downstairs in her life.
Despite landing on his feet, Dylan was taken to a local hospital and kept under observation for 20 hours.

Doctors put a neck brace on the child as a precaution, but said that he appeared to have not suffered any injury. Even more surprising, Dylan landed on solid rocks.

"It must have been angels who watch over him," the grandmother of the child, Kelli Hayes, said.
Meanwhile, Jessica Hayes said that the incident reminded her to never make assumptions about the safety of her child. She also moved from the apartment and is looking for a new home on the first floor.

Hunter holds up huge rat 
By: Moses Gold

(Scroll down for video) The largest city in Iran got hit with an estimated 25 million rats with some larger than cats, according to press reports in the United States.

Tehran has a rodent problem, a very large problem. Rats not only easily outnumber the residents of the city, they are also monstrously large. According to press reports, these parasites can weigh up to 11 pounds more than some regular cats.

The city has always had a problem with rats. Each spring, the water from the melted snow dumped from the Alborz mountains, brings the rats out from the underground. Back in 2000, Iran attempted to poison the rats, make them thirsty and forcing them underground in search of water, It did not work. In any event, the rats now appear to be even stronger and larger.

An environmental adviser to the council, Ismail Kahram, said: "They are bigger now and they look different. These are changes that normally take millions of years of evolution."

So now, in addition to chemicals, authorities have deployed sniper teams equipped with infrared lights for night hunting. So far, teams have been successful in breaking down only about 2,000 of them.

"It has become a 24 hour, 7 days a week war," Hadi Heydarzadeh, the head of Tehran Municipality's environmental agency, said last month. "We use chemical poisons to kill rats during the day and at night we use snipers,” he added.

Janai Stafford 
By: John Roberts

(Scroll down for video) A woman without any driving experience was able to step up to the plate and rescue an entire busload of passengers after the bus driver suddenly passed out at the wheel, according to press reports in Baltimore, Maryland.

Police confirmed that the woman, who saved the day when the bus driver became ill while behind the wheel, does not have a driver’s license.

A local television news station reported that Janai Stafford got on the bus in Baltimore, outside a Giant Supermarket. She noticed that the bus had a lot of children on board so she sat down in the front, near the driver.

Shortly after Stafford came aboard, the driver said: "Something is not right. I do not feel good. Something is not right." Then, Stafford said: "He face just dropped on the wheel."

Stafford acted quickly, embracing her inner action hero. She put her foot on top of the driver's foot, slowing the bus down and drove it slowly to the side of the road. "It just happened. I put my foot on his foot, wrapped my arm around him and moved the bus over to the right side of the road," she told the television news station.

Her action would be a heroic gesture for anyone, but Stafford’s quick thinking action was even more remarkable considering that she has no driver's license. She told the television news station that knows how to drive a car, but does not yet have a permit yet.

"I was not even sure where the drivers foot rested," she told the television news station. "I'm either going to press on the gas or press on the brake. Fortunately, I hit the brakes." she added.
After this, a driving test will be a piece of cake.

Truck that dumped ketchup on the road 
By: Sarah Weiss

(Scroll down for video) A busy Nevada highway was suddenly covered in Heinz Ketchup, according to video uploaded to the internet.

It looked a lot worse than it was. A semi truck with thousands of bottles of Heinz Ketchup crashed on I-80 near Reno, Nevada, leaving large red pools of tomato paste all over the busy road.

Fortunately, no one was hurt, but traffic quickly became backed up on Thursday. Sergeant Janay Sherven of the Nevada Highway Patrol told a local newspaper: "I saw red all over the road. No not from bodies, just ketchup.”

Police believe the accident occurred when the truck driver swerved to avoid a car. The truck collided with the median of the highway and hit a light pole, which in turn opened the side of the trailer.

Then came the tomato sauce. Lots and lots of ketchup. State transportation officials used plows to clean the dirty road. All the ketchup ended up in a landfill.

Disco dance club 
By: David Ross

A new studio is helping Holocaust survivors by offering Disco dancing, according to press reports in New York.

The new program aims to help Holocaust survivors in Brooklyn, New York. Since the beginning of this year, Minnie’s Place, a unique dance club in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Canarsie, has hosted elderly survivors for therapy sessions to the pulsating rhythms of 1970s club music.

The club is located inside the Hebrew Educational Society on Seaview Avenue. Minnie’s place is pimped out in black lights, a disco ball and an aromatherapy diffuser with psychedelic images projected on the walls. The facility also installed voice sensitive lights.

Elderly Jews will psychologically and spiritually benefit from the multisensory space, designed in accordance with a therapeutic approach developed in the 1970s by the Institut De Hartenburg in the Netherlands. It is meant to help deal with the pain and anxiety caused by repressed memories of the Holocaust.

"I feel like I'm in heaven," Dora Zalcberg, 89, said. "This makes me forget all my problems and what I went through," she added.
Zalcberg, who was a teenage prisoner in the concentration camp Parschnitz, is one of 350 Holocaust survivors who are expected to use the facility. The dance is free, lasting 30 to 40 minutes once a week.

Girl breaks up with boyfriend after he pushes her off 400 foot cliff

Jessica Powell and Creighton Baird 
By: John Roberts

(Scroll down for video) A group of daredevils set up ropes so they can jump off a cliff.

The adventure might have been fun for most of the group, but one man paid a heavy price by losing his girlfriend over the jump.

Some friends were on a camping trip in Utah, along with their girlfriends, when they set up the ropes so they can jump off the cliff.

The jump is dangerous and can be fatal if one of the secured ropes comes loose.

Several eager jumpers tested the swing and they enjoyed the thrill, but Jessica Powell could not muster up the courage to make the dangerous jump.

Her boyfriend, Creighton Baird, who had already jumped off the cliff with the swing, wanted his girlfriend to face her fears and to give it a try.

Baird tried gently to persuade his nervous girlfriend to attempt the feat, but she was too scared. After 45 minutes, he finally took control and nudged Powell towards the edge of the cliff. He then pushed her off the cliff despite Powell begging him not to push her.

While Powell descended into the canyon she gave a series of chilling screams and then shouted: 'I'm breaking up with you!'

At that point Baird started laughing, telling his friend: “I have just been dumped,” to which his friend replies: “can I have her number?”

Baird then said: “I know one day she will be looking back and thanking me for this.”
Well, that might not happen so fast as the couple officially broke up and are not together anymore.

Dr. Deborah Persaud studying the case 
By: Eva Fett

(Scroll down for video) A potentially breakthrough in the treatment of the AIDS virus was recently announced.

A Mississippi baby born with the AIDS virus seems to have been cured after being treated with an aggressive regimen of drugs immediately after his birth two years ago, an unusual case that could trigger changes to the treatments of hundreds of thousands of babies born in the world every year with the AIDS virus.

The findings were published on Sunday by researchers and marked only the second documented case ever of a human patient who was cured of the infection. The first, known as the Berlin patient was cured as a result of a bone marrow transplant several years ago.

The new case was discovered after the girl's mother stopped treatment and doctors realized that the virus was undetectable even without medication. HIV patients usually must take medication for the rest of their lives.
