    4. Pets help children with autism
    Children with autism can benefit heaps by having a pet -- any kind of pet. Researchers at the University of Missouri recently found that children with autism exhibit stronger social skills when a pet lived in their home, although those who have dogs appeared to have greater social skills compared to those who have other pets. The study revealed, however, that children with autism who have any kind of pet are generally assertive when it comes to introducing themselves, asking for information, or responding to people's questions.

    When two officers were called to help a pregnant woman on a Philadelphia train get to a hospital, they helped deliver the baby instead when they realized it was too late.  Sergeant Daniel Caban, 34, and Officer Darrell James, 29, wrapped the newborn with his father's jumper, while other passengers watched and held the doors open to prevent the train from leaving the station. Both mom and baby were taken to the hospital in good health. (buzzfeed.com)
