(Scroll down for video) People are angry after learning that McDonald’s fired an employee who paid for firefighters’ food.

Heather Levia, 23, is a mother of twins, working two jobs and is in nursing school. She works very hard, and therefore has an appreciation for the hard work of first responders.

When some firefighters in Olean, New York, came to order food after fighting a house fire in freezing temperatures, Levia paid their $83 bill herself. Later, another fire department ordered food.

After already paying $83 for the first food order, Levia asked her boss if the restaurant could pay the bill. Her boss said no. After checking with the company, Levia was told again that no. She and her colleagues covered the cost of the food.

When firefighters learned that Levia paid the bill, they called her boss to complain. The next day, she was fired after 8 years of working for the company.

Levia said that although she lost her job she does not regret what she did. She said that she would do it again.

A woman waited for many years to have a child, and when she finally gave birth, she killed herself.

Claire Turpin, 42, and her husband Andy of the United Kingdom, had a hard time to conceive, but were eventually successful after lengthy fertility treatment.

Turpin was delighted to discover she was pregnant with twins.

She gave birth to healthy babies, who were named Jack and Eliza.

One baby was born naturally and the other by caesarean section.

Mrs. Turpin took good care of the children, but she developed an irrational belief that she was not good enough to take care of them.

She began fearing that the government will take her babies away from her as she believed that she wasn’t good enough.

Her family sent her to see a doctor and she was prescribed medication.

Turpin’s family said that she was depressed, but there was no indication of suicide.

Sadly, Turpin, who used to work as a hotel manager, jumped from the John Lewis car park in Sheffield and died.

(Scroll down for video) Would you taste a sausage made with baby poop?

Scientist have successfully created sausages from baby poop, and they claim that these sausages are healthier and taste just as good a regular sausages.

They found that sausages which contain bacteria from the baby's stool may be good for your digestive system.

Spanish scientists did their experiment by collecting 43 fecal samples, which were taken from healthy children under 6 months old.

Feces from babies have more probiotics such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, than in adult feces.

The bacteria found in baby poop apparently have healthy properties that make sausages lower in salt and fat.
