A grieving father honored his daughter’s memory by bringing a Christmas tree farm to a children’s hospital in Alabama so the kids could pick out their own tree and decorate it with homemade ornaments.

Florida teen dies of mono, dad says: ‘She was a very giving soul’

A Florida teen recently died of the “kissing disease,” or mononucleosis, her father said.

Ariana Rae Delfs, 17, of Fernandina Beach, died after falling ill about three weeks ago, according to local news station WJAX-TV. The teen’s father, Mark Delfs, said Ariana had coldlike symptoms and “seemed to always have a headache” in the weeks before her death.

“The persistent thing all the way through was the headache,” he said.

WISCONSIN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SEES CHICKENPOX OUTBREAK: HEALTH OFFICIALS 

When Ariana failed to improve, her parents took her to a doctor who ran various tests, including one for mono, as per the news station. But a formal diagnosis was not made.

The teen’s symptoms continued to worsen. She was rushed to the hospital the morning after she spent one night “throwing up just constantly,” said Delfs. “We got very nervous.”

At the hospital, Ariana stood up at one point to use the restroom but told her parents she could not feel her legs.

“She felt like her legs were just giving out,” her father said.

Doctors suspected the 17-year-old was suffering a stroke and she was subsequently airlifted to a hospital in Jacksonville.

“Her words were very slurred at times. She was just talking gibberish, and the damage was already beginning at that point, which we just didn’t know,” said Delfs.

Sadly, Ariana received a formal diagnosis in the final days of her life: Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), which causes mononucleosis. The Mayo Clinic says the virus is the most common cause of mononucleosis.

The teen’s brain swelled to the point where it was not able to properly function, meaning Ariana suffered irreversible brain damage. At that point, “we just made the decision that it was time to let her go,” her father told the news station.

Following his daughter’s death, Delfs is urging other parents to take their children’s symptoms seriously and “be on top of it.”

“In our case, it wasn’t enough, but in somebody else’s case it may save their life,” he said.

Ariana, a scholar-athlete at Fernandina Beach High School, an artist, and self-taught musician, was “a very giving soul,” Delfs added. “She would give anybody anything.”

The teen’s funeral was on Wednesday. Her family has also set up a GoFundMe to raise money for “some of her passions, including music and arts programs for children, helping animals and making the world a better place,” the fundraiser reads.

Toddlers with unexplained bruising had ‘pork tapeworm’ larvae in body

Doctors discovered that two toddlers in China with unexplained bruising on their limbs were actually suffering from a parasite infection typically caused by consuming undercooked pork.

The 3-year-old boy and his 1-year-old sister, who reportedly first showed signs of skin discoloration in October, were treated at Shenzhen Third People’s Hospital in early November after the girl developed a cough, AisaWire reported.

NEW JERSEY COMPANY RECALLS CUT FRUIT OVER SALMONELLA CONCERNS

“The child was admitted because of bruises which repeatedly appeared on her body and especially on all four limbs,” Wang Xianfeng, a pediatrician at the hospital who treated the siblings, told the news outlet. “It wasn’t immediately clear what her condition was, so the advice was for her to stay for further tests.”

Xianfeng noticed the bruising was similar to her brother’s, and the pair were given blood tests which showed high white cell counts.

“This clue, together with the discovery that the sister’s bruises were in fact nodules under her skin, led to us testing for parasites,” he told AsiaWire.

IS IT SAFE TO EAT ROADKILL?

That’s when doctors discovered the children were housing Taenia solium larvae in their bodies. The parasite, also called a pork tapeworm, is transmitted to humans through consuming raw or undercooked beef or pork.

Humans who consume undercooked or raw beef or pork are at risk of contracting the parasite. (AsiaWire)

“The larvae found in the children were living between their skin and flesh, causing nodules and bruising,” Xianfeng told AsiaWire, explaining that the larvae don’t always immediately grow into tapeworms, which can cause serious conditions in areas of the bodies.

Xianfeng told AsiaWire that he put the toddlers on an antiparasitic drug to flush out the larvae and that they are continuing to be monitored.

Deserted Alaska child, 5, carries toddler half a mile in below-freezing temps in socks, light clothes: police

A 5-year-old child in a remote Alaska village carried a toddler half a mile to a neighbor’s house in the bitter cold after he was left home alone, police said Friday.

The young child was frightened after the power went out at the home, so wearing only socks and light clothing, he picked up the baby and carried it through temperatures that dipped 31 degrees below zero in the village of Venetie, Alaska, according to state troopers.

Both children suffered cold-weather injuries, according to an Alaska Department of Safety release.

Julie Peter, 37, left the 5-year-old and 18-month-old home alone and has been arrested on suspicion of endangering a minor. Her relationship to the children is not yet known.

ALASKAN DENTIST RODE HOVERBOARD WHILE PERFORMING PROCEDURE, AUTHORITIES SAY

Once the children reached another home, its residence called authorities and troopers arrived Tuesday to check on the children in the village of 175 people.

Like other interior Alaska communities during winter, Venetie — located 155 miles north of Fairbanks — regularly reaches 40 degrees below zero or lower.

The Troopers chartered an airplane to reach the village. It’s unclear how long the children were on their own; all authorities could say is that the child left because he was scared when the home lost power, troopers said.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

A 9-year-old boy killed in a Thanksgiving hunting accident has saved the lives of three others through organ donation, his grandfather said. Colton Williams, who was hunting rabbits with his dad in Springfield, S.C., donated his kidneys and liver.

“I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have prayed, visited, brought meals, made donations or helped in any way during this trying time when Beverly and I lost our only grandson,” Vince Furtick, the boy’s grandfather, wrote in a Facebook post on Sunday. “I saw many of our friends from all over the south today at the funeral in support of our families. God has Colton in his arms now and we truly miss him but rest in the knowledge that we will see him again one day.”

MAN WHO DIED IN SKATEBOARDING ACCIDENT SAVES 6 OTHERS THROUGH ORGAN DONATION

“Life goes on and in Colton’s case, three lives were saved by his donated kidneys and liver,” Furtick continued. “He was the brightest light in our lives and he will be missed greatly. Again, thank you.”

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources called the boy’s death a “terrible tragedy.”

COLLEGE GYNMAST WHO DIED IN TRAINING ACCIDENT WILL DONATE ORGANS

“The indication is that six adults and two children were at the site rabbit hunting,” Robert McCullough, the department spokesman, told the Daily News. “The daddy shot the 9-year-old by accident. They were out in the field when it happened. It’s a continuing investigation, so I can’t really speak to the actual incident, but I would say anytime you’re out hunting, always identify your targets and what’s behind them.”

Colton, a Clemson Tigers fan was who was a fourth-grade honor student at Kelly-Edwards Elementary School, was described as a boy who “enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping and loved playing.”

Girl Scouts say girls don’t ‘owe anyone a hug’ in post about consent, physical affection

The Girl Scouts is reminding its members they don’t “owe anyone a hug” ahead of the holiday season — declaring it could give impressionable children “the wrong idea about consent and physical affection.”

The youth organization for girls published a post online that explains such actions, like giving an uncle a “big hug” or giving an aunt who just gave a child a present a kiss as a thank you, “can set the stage for her questioning whether she ‘owes’ another person any type of physical affection” later in life.

CONDOM BRAND RELEASES ‘CONSENT PACKS’ THAT REQUIRE FOUR HANDS TO OPEN

“The notion of consent may seem very grown-up and like something that doesn’t pertain to children,” Dr. Andrea Bastiani Archibald, the Girl Scouts’ developmental psychologist, said in a statement. “But the lessons girls learn when they’re young about setting physical boundaries and expecting them to be respected last a lifetime, and can influence how she feels about herself and her body as she gets older.”

Bastiani added, “Plus, sadly, we know that some adults prey on children, and teaching your daughter about consent early on can help her understand her rights, know when lines are being crossed, and when to go to you for help.”

COLORADO PARENTS UPSET HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER ASSIGNED SEXUALLY EXPLICIT MATERIAL WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT

The post urges parents and guardians to “give your girl the space to decide when and how she wants to show affection,” as many children “may naturally want to hug and kiss family members, friends, and neighbors.”

INDIAN MAN TO SUE HIS PARENTS FOR GIVING BIRTH TO HIM ‘WITHOUT HIS CONSENT,’ WANTS TO BE PAID FOR HIS LIFE

Allowing children the freedom to decide whether they want to show affection to loved ones during the holiday season “doesn’t give her license to be rude,” however, and children can show affection and thankfulness in other ways that don’t require physical touch, the organization wrote.

Reactions to the Girl Scouts’ Facebook post on Monday were positive, with many writing they wish this was general practice when they were kids themselves. One woman wrote: “My grandma was a huge proponent of this thought. Glad we learned early that our bodies are ours.”

“I ask my kids to say hi/goodbye. It is up to them if they want to provide a hug. And our family knows better than to push it,” another commenter said. “I love this and it definitely applies to all children,” someone else wrote.

Others, however, wrote online that girls do need to give physical attention to family members, saying, “reminder yes she does. It’s called respect, thankfulness, and appreciation for your family” and “Reminder: Until she pays the bills in this house, she will hug her grandparents and she will like it.”

Florida police officers save 1-year-old child choking on cracker in dramatic bodycam video

Police officers in Florida have been hailed as heroes after dramatic body camera video showed how their quick actions helped save the life of a choking 1-year-old child.

Amanda Zimmerman rushed her son, MJ, out of their house in Kissimmee on Saturday after a Gold Fish cracker got stuck in his throat and stopped his breathing. The panic-stricken mother said she waved down a police cruiser that happened to be going down the street.

“I ran out in the middle and waved, and he got out and said, ‘What’s wrong?’ and I just handed him to him and said he’s not breathing,” Zimmerman told FOX35 Orlando.

Body camera footage from the Kissimmee Police Department shows an officer sitting with MJ on his knee and repeatedly thumping on the child’s back. At least five officers responded to assist in the rescue.

“He’s not responding,” the officer says as he continues the modified Heimlich maneuver.

Moments later, another officer looks at MJ’s face and says: “He’s turning purple.”

The officers didn’t give up, turning the child over onto his back and tapping on his chest. As they continue their attempts to revive the child, Zimmerman can be heard screaming her son’s name in the background.

FIVE FEEL-GOOD STORIES FROM THIS WEEK YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS

Sgt. Craig Putriment eventually used a CPR mask on MJ, who then took a gasp of air, FOX35 reported. Zimmerman said he had stopped breathing for 10 minutes.

The resuscitated 1-year-old was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Deputy Chief Betty Holland called the rescue effort an “amazing” display of teamwork.

“There’s no feeling like saving someone’s life and that’s what he did, that’s what they did,” Holland told FOX35.

Zimmerman told the station that MJ is back home doing well and wants to meet the officers who helped save his life.

“He’s not responding,” the officer says as he continues the modified Heimlich maneuver.

Moments later, another officer looks at MJ’s face and says: “He’s turning purple.”

The officers didn’t give up, turning the child over onto his back and tapping on his chest. As they continue their attempts to revive the child, Zimmerman can be heard screaming her son’s name in the background.

The resuscitated 1-year-old was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Deputy Chief Betty Holland called the rescue effort an “amazing” display of teamwork.

“There’s no feeling like saving someone’s life and that’s what he did, that’s what they did,” Holland told FOX35.

Zimmerman told the station that MJ is back home doing well and wants to meet the officers who helped save his life.

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.”

Video shows Foster performing a modified version of chest compressions for infants, tapping her back to dislodge the medicine from her throat. But the child wasn’t responding and appeared lethargic, he told the station.

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.
