A tunnel that was under construction in northern India collapsed during a landslide this month, and 41 construction workers were trapped. But after 17 days and a massive rescue effort, all 41 made it out alive yesterday…………. A lot of people missed this story over the Thanksgiving break: Last Thursday, a half-built high-rise in England caught fire. And a very skilled crane operator saved a construction worker stuck on the roof. He saw him signaling for help, attached a cage to the crane, and lifted it up so the guy could climb in. A two-minute video has been making the rounds online. You can tell how dire it was just listening to the people in the background. The crane operator is 65-year-old Glen Edwards. He said the windy conditions made it pretty tough. But he downplayed the whole thing, saying, quote, “I don’t want to blow it up too much. I’m not that sort of person.” (Here’s the video.)…..And finally………..
Madison Atkinson, a 15-year-old girl CA girl, was a HERO on Thanksgiving, after she helped a three-year-old relative, who was found floating face down in a pool. The little girl’s uncle pulled her out, but didn’t know CPR. Madison stepped in and started performing CPR, which she’d learned in a sports medicine class. After a couple minutes, the little girl opened her eyes and started breathing again. She’s since made a full recovery.
