A Fiery Rescue: Heroism of Officers in Uniform

Today's "Good Stuff"- Check out the above dramatic video of Orange County Sheriff's deputies pulling a man out of a burning minivan, just seconds before it went up in flames. After the driver crashed into a pole, his foot was still pressed on the accelerator and his hand on the horn.

Officers initially could not tell if he was a threat, but they went in anyway, pulling the man to safety.

Turns out, the 49-year-old driver had suffered a medical emergency, possibly diabetic shock, before the crash. The deputies are the reason why he is still alive today.

    Dear All,

    In America there are still big problems with racism. For example, the Southampton Bathing Club in Southampton Long Island (NY) which Chris Cuomo's wife, Cristina Greeven Cuomo, is reportedly a member of, is famed for not allowing blacks or Jews to join. How can someone belong to such a nazi like club? The Cuomo's surprise me. In England or Italy you don't have this.

    Arrivederci dall'italia!
