Firefighters Help Fill Kiddie Pool On Hot Day
After leaving a medical call, a group of firefighters in Charlotte, North Carolina passed a family struggling to fill a whole kiddie pool using just pots and pans. It was a hot and steamy summer afternoon, so Engine 18 stopped to lend a hand and a hose.
The family was getting ready for a little boy’s birthday party and the firefighters filled the entire pool quickly for them using one of their hoses, saving the family lot of time and many trips back and forth with those pots and pans. Plus, it was probably a lot of fun for that birthday boy.
"What was just a simple task for us turned into laughter, smiles, and a lifelong memory for the neighborhood kids as well as the men on Engine 18,” the fire station write in a post on Facebook. “Proud to serve the WESTSIDE!"

Toddler Heads Home After A Year In The Hospital
Matteo Duran was born with congenital myotonic dystrophy, a genetic disorder that causes muscle weakness. The one-year-old has been getting treatment since birth at Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri, and now he’s finally been discharged.
The toddler will get care from five in-home nurses and requires a lot of medical equipment, but his family is looking forward to having him in the house after all this time. "We've been waiting for this for a long, long time," says Matteo's father, Luis Duran. “I don’t think he knows exactly what’s happening, but I know he’ll love it in his new room. A room we’ve had ready for a long, long time.”

Volunteers Remove 12K Tons Of Trash From Beach In India
Hundreds of volunteers have been coming out and getting to work picking up trash on a beach in India, removing 12,000 tons of plastic. Lawyer Afroz Shah spearheaded the cleanup when he started the Sky Ocean Rescue group last year.
"This beach laps the plastic up," Shah explains."It acts like a net. You must pick it up or the next high tide will take it out and it will never come back. Then it harms marine life."
The Mumbai beach had been waist-high in plastic and something drastic had to happen. Since Sky Ocean Rescue launched, Bollywood stars have gotten involved, donating diggers and tractors to help dig up plastic buried under the sand. Now kids can play in the sand and people can enjoy the surf without the trash.
