Missouri sanitation worker caught on camera helping 88-year-old woman with dementia

Westlake Legal Group good-samaritan Missouri sanitation worker caught on camera helping 88-year-old woman with dementia Talia Kaplan fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/missouri fox-news/us/personal-freedoms/proud-american fox-news/good-news fox news fnc/us fnc article 64159424-28bb-59f0-929c-2a32a3d2cbe2

A sanitation worker in Missouri was caught on camera going out of his way to help an 88-year-old woman with dementia on Tuesday.

Colette Kingston of Kansas City told Fox News on Wednesday that she had a Ring security camera installed on her mother’s home in nearby Independence, Mo., so she could check on her mother, Opal Zucca, who has dementia.

“I get a notification on my phone when there is movement in her driveway,” Kingston said.

When she got an alert Tuesday afternoon, Kingston looked at the video and saw a sanitation worker holding her mother’s hand, walking with her up the driveway.

“He was bringing up her trash can and just helping her walk up the driveway,” Kingston said. “It made me teary-eyed to see that someone would be so compassionate and caring.”

The sanitation worker, identified as Billy Shelby with Waste Management, was heard laughing with Zucca in the video.

“It’s good to see you,” Shelby told Zucca.

“It’s good seeing you too,” she responded. “God bless you as always, darling.”

He added, “Looking good. I like that hair. I got to work on mine.”

The gesture was “sweet and emotional,” Kingston said, and she appreciated it — especially because her mother tripped and hit her head while trying to retrieve the trash can in January.

Kingston said she had seen Shelby before on the camera helping her mother with the garbage.

“I’ve noticed him a few times on the camera returning the trash can, but not to this personal extent,” she said. “It’s like his own grandmother that he’s helping, like one of his family members.”

Kingston said her mother looked forward to seeing Shelby every week and even would say a prayer for him when he came by.

“Just thanking God that he’s there doing his part to help her,” Kingston said.

She was able to identify the kind sanitation worker through the help of Facebook, Kingston pointed out.

“My niece posted it in several groups saying, ‘Does anybody know who this is?’ And then, one of her friends who works for Waste Management said she would help us, and then one of his close friends actually reached out to me,” Kingston explained.

Shelby came to Zucca’s house on Wednesday night, and Kingston got the opportunity to thank him in person.

Kingston said Shelby and her family will attend a Kansas City Chiefs football game together next month. She’s coordinating with the team, which donated the tickets, to ensure he has a memorable experience.

“Knowing that somebody else would care for a stranger like they would their own family member, it reminds me that there are lots of good people still around,” Kingston said, adding that she thought Shelby and her mother will have a lasting friendship.

Video shows Utah trooper risk his life to save driver stuck on train tracks

Westlake Legal Group Utah-Train-5 Video shows Utah trooper risk his life to save driver stuck on train tracks Morgan Phillips fox-news/us/us-regions/west/utah fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/good-news fox news fnc/us fnc b79b07d8-156e-53f5-bfbb-9ddf8ec5f0bb article

A Utah Highway Patrol Officer is being hailed as a hero after he risked his life to pull a man off of train tracks moments before a train barreled through the area.

Dashboard camera footage shows the officer bolting out of his vehicle and running into the path of the oncoming train to rescue an unconscious driver from a vehicle that had crashed on the tracks.

“We’ve got to get out of here, we’ve got a train coming! We’ve got a train coming! We’ve got a train coming!” Trooper Ruben Correa can be heard shouting. Just before the train collided with the vehicle, Correa pulled the driver into the grass surrounding the tracks.

No one was injured in the crash, but the vehicle was destroyed.

“I looked to my left and was able to observe the train was coming pretty fast,” Correa told KSL-TV, “anywhere between 50 – 80 miles per hour.”

“At that point, I actually wasn’t really thinking, I was just doing my job, and the main concern was getting him [the driver] out,” he added.

The vehicle had veered off the freeway, crashed through a fence, and came to a stop on the train tracks after the driver suffered a medical condition. Correa had been handling a traffic stop nearby when he responded to a call of a car on the tracks. “Before I knew it, that train hit that vehicle and we were able to make it out alive,” said Correa.

Correa said he didn’t feel the weight of the situation until he watched the train launch the SUV from the tracks. “That’s when I realized, ‘Oh, wow, that was a lot closer than what I would have liked,’” he said.

Florida man pays off school lunch debt for entire town: ‘Children shouldn’t learn hungry’

A Florida man decided to surprise his community by paying off the lunch debt of every child in their town, Jupiter, but the good news doesn’t stop there. He sparked a movement.

When Andrew Levy found out more than 400 students in his area were unable to receive a full meal because they couldn’t afford to pay for school lunches, he stepped up to the plate.

CALIFORNIA BILLS SEEKS TO BAN ‘LUNCH SHAMING,’ WILL GUARANTEE STATE-FUNDED MEALS FOR STUDENTS

“I thought, ‘That’s crazy.’ Food is something you shouldn’t have to think about,” Levy told WPEC. “Children shouldn’t learn hungry.”

Levy paid $944.34 to cover nine local schools’ lunch debt, something he said was a modest price to pay to make a difference for each child.

“I want to thank you for generosity, these kids will never forget your kindness,” one person wrote, according to Faithwire. “No kid should ever have to go hungry while at school so let’s make this happen in every city and in every state!!!” another added.

The School District of Palm Beach County, a much larger area, set up a form for people interested in helping out erase the $50,000 accumulated for over 180,000 enrolled students.

A South Carolina police officer is being hailed as a hero after a dramatic body camera video showed how his actions helped save a choking 4-month-old infant.

Cpl. Derrall Foster of the Belton Police Department said he arrived at the scene on Oct. 4 to find neighbors waving him down in a panic, Fox Carolina reported.

A baby named Maryelle had stopped breathing after choking on a Tylenol her mother, Kiersten Nivens, administered to help the infant’s teething. The desperate mother had run outside for help after her phone battery died.

“She was not blue yet, but she was not breathing,” Foster told the station. “She was very limp. I saw my 2-year-old as if it were her, and I knew we had to take care of the situation.”

Foster didn’t give up and continued to pat her back multiple times until he heard the perfect sound: Maryelle’s cry.

“Oh God it was very relieving,” Foster said. “I’m just doing my job. That’s all I was doing.”

After the scare, Nivens told the station she was thankful for Foster and all the first responders who helped her child.

Dog missing for 12 years reunited with owner after being found 1,130 miles away

If dogs could talk, Dutchess would have quite the story to tell.

The 14-year-old toy fox terrier was reunited with her Florida-based owner on Friday after disappearing 12 years ago. The pup was found more than 1,000 miles away from home in Pittsburgh.

Humane Animal Rescue says it found Dutchess under a shed on Monday. She was hungry, shivering and needed a nail trim.

The rescue center used Dutchess’ microchip to locate her owner, Katheryn Strang, who drove roughly 1,130 miles from Boca Raton to Pittsburgh to reunite with her long-lost pet.

The Humane Animal Rescue posted a video of their reunion.

Strang was in disbelief when she heard the news that Dutchess had been found, she said.

DOG WOKE VETERAN OWNER DURING HOUSE FIRE, SAVING HIS LIFE

Dutchess escaped one day in 2007 when Strang’s son opened the door to leave for school. At the time, Strang and her family lived in Orlando on a busy street; she assumed Dutchess was either hit by a car or picked up by someone.

Strang said she checked local animal shelters every day after her beloved dog went missing. She also continued to pay the annual microchip fee and update her contact information any time the family moved.

“They are like your babies. You don’t give up hope,” Strang said at a press conference after reuniting with Dutchess, murmuring to her dog: “Where have you been?”

Airman sets world record with 551-pound bench press: ‘Humble and grateful’

Air Force Tech. Sgt. Kenneth Cook is a man of many strengths.

He’s physically one of the strongest men you’ll ever meet. The Florida native recently broke the world record for an unassisted, or raw, bench press at the annual Olympia Pro Powerlifting Competition in September in Las Vegas. He benched 551 pounds while weighing 218 pounds and competing in the 198- to 220-pound weight class. The previous world record was 534 pounds.

But Cook learned a different kind of strength growing up from his mom, a single parent who worked several jobs to keep food on the table and take care of her kids.

“My first acknowledgment of what strength was, was mental strength in seeing my mom do everything she could to take care of us,” Cook told Fox News. “Not once did she complain about the situation she was in.”

The youngest of three, with two older sisters, Cook said he grew up in a neighborhood outside Orlando where a life of crime was an easy way to make money. He was surrounded by people who had money and cars, and he idolized drug dealers and criminals. Cook ended up in and out of juvenile detention halls and later jail throughout his teens.

“I got into a lot of trouble I put myself in,” he said, “from me not finding my way and not knowing who I really was.”

While he wasn’t an angry young kid, he used any anger he did have as an excuse to act out.

“One of the teachers in class said if you don’t pay attention in school, you’ll end up flipping burgers at McDonald’s,” Cook recalled. “My mom worked at McDonald’s a large majority of my life. I took that as an insult and took it to heart.”

US DROPPED MORE BOMBS IN AFGHANISTAN LAST MONTH THAN ANY TIME SINCE 2010: AIR FORCE

During what ended up being the last time he was in jail in Florida, he was lucky enough to meet a man who ultimately set him on the right path.

“One of the guards taught me what being a man was all about,” Cook said. “He talked about growing up, about using the positive people in your life and trying to discard the negative people. Misery loves company, and a lot of the guys I grew up with were just that — misery. Criminal acts were all they knew.”

Something else the prison guard mentioned? The military.

“He talked to me about the Marines, the Army, the Navy, the Air Force — I knew I had to change my life,” Cook said.

In 2006 he joined the Air Force, an opportunity for which he is perpetually grateful, Cook said.

“Ever since then I’ve been trying to excel in every way I could,” he pointed out.

He has met incredible people — from his leadership to his peers, and all forms of family. “Blood makes you related, but loyalty makes you family,” according to Cook.

The military is also how he met his wife, Tech. Sgt. Asia Cook. The couple has two sons, 1 and 4 years old.

Cook has served for more than 13 years in the Air Force, six of those in the security forces field, during which he deployed three times in support of Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom.

He landed at Travis Air Force Base in California in April 2014, where he currently serves as a boom operator, or in-flight refueler, for the 60th Operations Group.

His job is to refuel military aircraft, whether a fighter jet or a bomber, while it’s in the air, “so they can get to wherever they need to go.” He describes it as a “mobile gas station in the air.”

Cook has completed more than 101 convoy missions and 110 combat flying missions in the air — a significant milestone.

He started lifting weights when he first joined the military in 2006. Even though the Air Force is sometimes jokingly referred to as the “Chair Force,” “everyone is striving for greatness,” Cook said.

“Everyone wants to be stronger, everyone wants to be more agile. The Air Force pushes fitness,” he said.

He met a technical sergeant at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii who became his mentor and big brother. The humble, “walking tree stump” of a man — 5-foot-6 and weighing 220 pounds — taught Cook about lifting.

When he arrived at Travis Air Force Base in 2013, two powerlifters approached him in the gym and told him his strength was impressive, “but your form is horrible,” Cook recalled.

AIR FORCE TEST-LAUNCHES INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC MISSILE IN CALIFORNIA

They taught him the basics of the sport, which includes the bench press, back squat and deadlift. When he participated in his first competition at Old Skool Iron gym in 2014, he took second place.

Since then he says he’s been “eating weights.”

“Every time I touch a platform I’ve been humbled and grateful, because of the people around me” who are supportive and encouraging, Cook says. And he’s good — Cook has placed first in every competition since 2014, including last week when he set a new California state record, benching 556 pounds while weighing 224 pounds.

The camaraderie of both the military and powerlifting is something that keeps him humble and driven, Cook said.

“Now I want to set as many records as I can, but I’m not focused on setting records. I get more pride from people wanting to learn from me,” he said. “Records and lifting weights are great, but it’s the people and the smiles, looking into the crowd — that’s the most gratifying feeling.”

While he’s not making money off his lifting skills, he’s “good on my fortune from the people around me,” Cook said.

“At home [in Florida], I was doing everything the wrong way for recognition. Now I’m doing things the right way, and leaving a legacy for my sons,” he said. “Whether you lift weights or do underwater basket weaving, it doesn’t matter. I just want them to see that their dad strived and fought for something, and he did it.”

Five feel-good stories from this week you don’t want to miss

Grab the tissues.

Here are some good stories of surprises, inspiration, and giving back that we could all use this week.

1. STOP! IT’S BIRTHDAY TIME!

Community surprises crossing guard for this 80th birthday

Crossing guard Alec Childress got a big surprise Thursday when he showed up to the corner of 9th and Lake streets in Wilmette, Ill., where he greets children with a smile and the phrase, “Peace, I gotcha!”

But after 14 years of doing this job after retiring, the man who always has something to say was left speechless.

“It was awesome!” Childress told Fox News of the community surprise. “All the kids, the parents…It’s beyond comprehension. I told somebody I need to sit down before I fall down.”

Cancer survivor Katy Payne, 21, has just graduated as a nurse – and is set to work as a children’s nurse at the hospital where she was diagnosed with leukemia aged two. 

A nurse returns to work at the same hospital she was treated for leukemia as a child.

Katy Payne, 21, is a cancer survivor who grew up to become a pediatric nurse, starting her work at Colchester Hospital in Essex, in southeast England, as the newest employee.

“I remember patches of my time in hospital and some of the highs and lows,” Payne told SWNS of her cancer treatment. “The things I experienced have made me stronger, and I have always said I would like to give something back to the hospital, the doctors and the nurses, and everyone that’s been part of my journey.”

A group of young neighborhood sleuths surprised the Roseville Police Department when they called 9-1-1 in response to a missing woman’s notice.

Glenneta Belford, 97, who suffers from dementia and is non-verbal, was found just a few hours after police posted her missing online.

Logan Hultman, Kashton Claiborne and Makenna Rogers, who are all 10, and 11-year-old Hope Claiborne set out and eventually found Belford, several hours after she was reported missing, hiding in bushes a few blocks away from their homes.

“This is a great example of our exceptional community coming together to lend a helping hand. This proves a great point, age is just a number and anyone can help out in a time of need,” police said in a Facebook post.

Shauna Hall was visiting the restaurant in Stafford, Va., last week with her son, but as soon as Hall got out of her van, she dropped her iPhone into a storm drain and she was especially upset because she “just paid off” the phone and had purchased a new Otterbox phone case only days before.

Seth, a Chick-fil-A employee, offered to help.

“Not only did he slice his finger and was filthy from laying on the ground and climbing in the hole, I find out he had actually just gotten off shift and was still willing to help me,” Hall said. “Service with a smile. Just another day at Chick-fil-A.”

Students across the nation celebrate faith on football fields

Over 250,000 students participated in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ student-led “Fields of Faith” event, tackling tough issues like suicide and depression and giving students the opportunity to “open up their life to Christ.”

Julianna Braniecki, president of the FCA chapter at her university, Huddle at Hofstra, shared on “Fox & Friends” Thursday how students had speakers, musicians (including rappers), and student testimonies during the “Fields of Faith” events.

“Last night at Hofstra, we had the pleasure of hosting our first Fields of Faith event…It was really a powerful experience,” she added. “My faith is something that is very important to me, and through my experience with FCA, that has greatly increased that and grown in my love for Christ.”

California firefighters save dog stuck in culvert pipe by using treats

California firefighters saved an adventurous dog from inside a narrow culvert pipe on Tuesday using tools more powerful than the Jaws of Life: tasty treats.

The unnamed pup’s leg became stuck in a pipe off Kearsarge Mill Road in Alta, located about 60 miles northeast of Sacramento, CAL Fire’s Nevada-Yuba-Placer Unit wrote on Facebook.

Former President Jimmy Carter is recovering at his home in Plains, Ga., after he suffered a fall Sunday, according to The Carter Center.

Carter, 95, received stitches above his brow and said he “feels fine” now, the organization said in a statement.

The former president and his wife, Rosalynn Carter, will still attend Habitat for Humanity’s Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project in Nashville, Tenn., which runs from Sunday through Friday, the center announced.

Carter, whose birthday was Oct. 1, is the longest-living U.S. president in history.

He broke his hip after suffering a fall in his home this past May while readying to go turkey hunting. Doctors said he underwent successful surgery.

JIMMY CARTER SAYS HE HOPES ‘THERE’S AN AGE LIMIT’ FOR PRESIDENCY IN APPARENT JAB AT BIDEN, SANDERS

The former president announced in 2016 that he no longer needed radiation to treat cancer, which had spread to spots in his brain.

The 39th commander in chief served from 1977 until 1981, when he was in his 50s.

Carter said last month he hoped “there’s an age limit” to holding the highest elected office in the U.S.

California ‘team of junior detectives’ help find missing 97-year-old woman with dementia

A group of young neighborhood sleuths in California is being hailed for their efforts last week to help find a missing woman.

The Roseville Police Department had posted to Facebook last Monday asking the public for help to locate a missing woman.

Glenneta Belford, 97, was reported missing around 4:15 p.m. in northwest Roseville, spurring police activity in the area. Officials said the 97-year-old suffers from dementia and is nonverbal.

“Recently she’s been known to hide or hunker down in a location,” police said at the time.

As a police helicopter hovered over the neighborhood making announcements that officers were searching for the woman, a group of young sleuths began their own search of the streets for the 97-year-old. Logan Hultman, Kashton Claiborne and Makenna Rogers, who are all 10, and 11-year-old Hope Claiborne set out and eventually found Belford, several hours after she was reported missing, hiding in bushes a few blocks away from their homes.

“She was right here and she was walking and she was talking to herself. And then when we came, she said, ‘No, no, no. Go away, go away, go away,'” Kashton told FOX40.

Hope, the oldest of the group, knew then what she had to do. 
 
“I called 911 and I said that I found this missing woman,” she told FOX40.

Roseville police said when officers arrived on the street in the neighborhood they were “overwhelmed by the number of residents out of their houses, looking around the neighborhood.”

“Our surprised dispatchers took the initial call from this team of junior detectives which helped connect officers to the missing person,” police said on Facebook. “This is a great example of our exceptional community coming together to lend a helping hand. This proves a great point, age is just a number and anyone can help out in a time of need.”

The search didn’t go off without some challenges. Before they found the 97-year-old, Logan told FOX40 he went over a bump on his bike that caused him to fall off. The group had to go back home to get cleaned up.

“So we came all the way back and my brother patched me up,” he said.

Logan’s mother, Alyssa Hultman, said her son gave her a blunt reason why the group found the need to go out searching for the woman on their own.

“He looked at me like I was almost crazy and said, ‘Because somebody needed help, mom. And when people need help you go and help them. That’s what we do,’” Hultman told FOX40. “So that right there, that makes you proud.”
