(Scroll down for video) Sixteen shoppers were shocked to learn that their bills at Kmart were paid in full by a strange woman.

Sixteen families in Auburn, Maine, received a phone call from their local Kmart last week. The layaway department of the store called to let them know that an anonymous woman had paid all her bills.

The "layaway angel" told the store staff that she had a terminal illness and just wanted to do something good before she died. In just 15 minutes she paid 16 balances, which amounted to about $3,000 in cash, and left.

"I wanted to cry," Joyce Beane, a Kmart manager said. "It was so powerful. It takes something like this to make you think, 'If I face the end of my life, would I take the time to reach out and help people?" She said.

People who saw the anonymous woman said she seemed weak, leaning on the shelves while moving throughout the store.

"This lady has shown there are still good people out there," Rina Thibeau, one of the 16 lucky shoppers, said.

(Scroll down for video) A woman is very angry after she woke up with a mustache after surgery, according to a lawsuit filed in court.

The woman sued her local hospital after a doctor painted a fake mustache and put teardrop-shaped stickers on her face while she was asleep.

Veronica Valdez, 36, had worked at Torrance Memorial Medical Center in Los Angeles, California for 13 years before having a surgical procedure on her finger.

After surgery, while she was still asleep, her anesthesiologist, Doctor Patrick Yang, cut and colored labels before placing them on her face.

"I thought she might think it's funny and she would appreciate it," Dr. Yang said.
"I was violated I was in shock," Valdez said in court documents.

The incident led to a state investigation and a civil suit by the patient against the doctor and the hospital claiming an alleged violation of medical privacy.

A hospital spokesperson admitted that it was a "breach of professionalism" and the people involved "showed poor judgment" while caring for Valdez.

"My client does not think it was funny, obviously. She took it as a complete violation of her dignity and of her status in the hospital," her legal representative, Andrew Ryan, said in a statement.

Hospital officials reported the incident as a potential violation of medical privacy.
The staff involved were disciplined, but it is understood that they kept their positions.

(Scroll down for video) A baby’s trip to the zoo turned into a nightmare after a monkey ripped off his testicle and ate it, according to emergency workers in China.

Hospital officials said that an eight-month-old baby is in the hospital after a monkey tore off one of his testicles and ate it.

The baby was being changed into a clean diaper at a Chinese zoo, when the animal attacked him, pulling off the testicle before it fell to the ground.

An old man picked it up, but a monkey snatched it from his hands and then ran away. The monkey managed to swallow it before it could be captured.

The shocking ordeal occurred in Guiyang Qianling Wildlife Park in Guiyang, capital of Guizhou Province in southwest China.

The baby is recovering in the hospital and his injuries are not severe.

The number of monkeys in the zoo reached uncontrollable levels in recent years, with the family of monkeys expanding from only about 70 to 500.

While animals are fed three times a day, audience members also offer some food despite signs warning against feeding the animals.
