Airline Employee Returns Bag To Cancer Patient Passenger
When Stacy Hurt was flying back to Pittsburgh recently, she caught an earlier flight and was separated from her luggage. After maintenance issues, her bag’s flight was cancelled, leaving it stuck in Nashville. She started to panic because inside her suitcase was her medication she takes to cope with the side effects of stage-four colon cancer and a rosary she brings to chemo appointments, which she had the following morning.
So when Hurt explained all this to Southwest Airlines employee Sarah at Pittsburgh International Airport, she got emotional. Sarah assured her she would have a courier deliver the bag as soon as it arrived. Unfortunately, the luggage showed up after the courier went home.
Instead Sarah personally drove the suitcase to Hurt’s home at three in the morning. She left it with a note that reads: “Sorry for the delay getting your bag back to you. Myself and my Southwest family are thinking of you and wishing all the best. Kick that cancer’s BUTT! With LUV, Sarah from PIT.”
Hurt was so touched, she shared the story on Facebook. “This is an example that there are really good people in the world who care and go above and beyond,” she posted. “This woman has restored my faith in humanity.”
Ohio Football Players Save Senior Couple From River
The Cardinal High School Football team from Middlefield, Ohio was finishing up a ten-mile team building canoe trip on the Cuyahoga River when they encountered an elderly couple who needed help. The man was treading water and the woman was in the boat, holding onto a tree branch and they were stuck on the rocks.
Some of the players jumped into the water and helped get the seniors safely back to dry land. The woman saved by the team says the young men saved their lives and the couple wrote a letter to the school explaining how grateful they are for the rescue.
The teammates and the couple are planning to attend the next school board meeting where the players will be honored for their bravery. “It’s nothing special that we did,” player Parker Kosh says. “It’s just something that I feel we should do as humans, just look out for each other.”

Thankfully, homeowner Chuck Graves came to the door quickly. He told the others inside to get out and he used a fire extinguisher to knock down part of the fire before Clark County Firefighters showed up and put the rest of the blaze out. Luckily, everyone was safe and the house didn’t burn down because the paper guy was paying attention.
