Family Reunion for Homeless Good Samaritan

Today’s edition of the good stuff is best called the “better stuff”

It’s an update on the changing fortunes of Joel Hartman.

He's the Atlanta homeless man who found a wallet while digging through trash for food– and returned it to a guest at the Omni Hotel.

The Omni was so impressed, they put him up in a luxury room for the entire Thanksgiving holiday, gave him free room service, a new wardrobe, even a makeover.

Total strangers sent in money.  And now, Hartman even has a couple of job offers.

But even that is not the best part.

All of the media attention helped Hartman’s family, who have been looking for him for years, find him, and have a very special Thanksgiving day reunion.

As great as all of this is, it's just the beginning of the road to recovery for Hartman. He faces treatment for acute ADHD– an illness that's prevented him holding a steady job in the past.

Man Survives Being Underwater for Nearly 3 Days

A story of survival that's almost too miraculous to be real captured in newly-released video of a man being pulled from underwater after he was trapped beneath the ocean for nearly 3 days!

The story reads like a Blockbuster thriller. In May, a tug boat carrying a 12-person crew capsized in the Atlantic off the coast of Nigeria. Two divers were sent to recover the bodies. It was assumed that after two and a half days, everyone aboard had died.

Shockingly, one man – Harrison Okene – was found alive, having found a tiny, 4-ft air space.

Okene looked stunned as the crew continued to reassure him as he takes his first sips of water in days, having survived on only coca-cola and no food.

He told a Nigerian newspaper: "The rest of my life is not enough to thank God for this wonder, it is incredible."
