Police gives piggyback to elderly man struggling to cross busy road in China

A police officer in Mianyang, China was seen coming to the aid of an elderly man who became stranded in the crosswalk of a busy street, hoisting the senior o...

You're in the middle of a busy intersection and you spot an elderly man struggling to cross before the light changes.

He's wobbling on his two walking sticks and gets left behind by his fellow pedestrians as cars and cyclists whizz past.

What do you do?

If you were like this Chinese police officer, you'd swoop in to save the day.  

In CCTV posted to social media, the traffic policeman quickly jumps into action and approaches the man.

With dozens of vehicles backed up, the officer has a brief conversation before hoisting the elderly man onto his back and piggybacking him to safety.

According to Mianyang Traffic Police, while the vehicles waiting for the man did not beep their horns, the officer decided to help speed up the process.

The police described it as a "heart-warming scene".

The 10-year-old on a mission to warm Hobart's homeless

Oliver's brilliant idea to help Hobart's homeless

Oliver Edwards was given a homework challenge to come up with a way to help his community after the May floods in Hobart.

The 10-year-old created Free on a Tree — leaving donated coats hung on trees in public spaces around the city with a sticker that says: "If you need this, it's yours."

"I hope that people [who] need the coats will take them," Oliver said.

Oliver and his mum check the forecast the night before to make sure the coats won't get rained on.

So far they've hung up about 40 coats and hope to distribute 100 coats this month.

Workers demolishing an uninhabited house in Brittany found made an unexpected discovery in the cellar — 600 gold coins.

The coins were discovered after rattling a mysterious, shell-shaped container.

They are Belgian, dated 1870, and have the face of the then-reigning king of Belgium, Leopold II.

Local media reports they could be worth 100,000 euros ($155,000),

The treasure will remain under lock and key until more information is unearthed about its origin.

A group of Stoneman Douglas High School students moved the audience at the Tony Awards to tears with a performance of the song Seasons of Love from the musical Rent.

Their drama teacher Melody Herzfeld received the award for Excellence in Theatre Education as well as a $10,000 prize for the school's theatre program.

Less than six months ago Ms Herzfeld and her students hid in their classroom as a former student shot dead 17 people.

Ms Herzfeld told TIME magazine some of her students relied on art and music to help them navigate the tragedy.

Doggie blood donors are saving fellow bush canines

Husky Jenna lays on ground while Mia sits beside her.

Vets across regional Australia rely on a few loyal animals they can call on in an emergency, like Mia the Great Dane.

Mia is just three-years-old but has donated blood six times at Knox Veterinary Clinic in Dalby, Queensland.

Her first donation saved Jenna the husky, who started bleeding after having seven puppies.

Thanks to Mia, they all survived.

At least two rhinoceros poachers eaten by lions 

Lions maul suspected poacher in South Africa

At least two rhino poachers have been eaten by lions on a South African game reserve, the owner of the lodge said.

A ranger taking guests at the Sibuya Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape on a safari drive on Tuesday afternoon discovered human remains close to a pride of lions.

"We suspect two were killed, possibly three," Sibuya owner Nick Fox said.

An axe and three pairs of shoes and gloves were found later when police and an anti-poaching unit arrived.

The lions had been heard making a commotion in the early hours of Monday.

"We thought they must have been rhino poachers but the axe confirmed it," Mr Fox said.

"They use the rifle to shoot the animal and the axe to remove the horn."

Score one for the lions!!
