Domestic Abuse and the NFL

Did NFL executives see video of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee inside a casino elevator?

Perhaps as critically: Did they even need to?

On "New Day" Friday, ESPN's Jemele Hill doubted the league's ability to handle domestic abuse if it took video proof of the incident for the league to take more serious action against the player.

“Somebody telling you they punched their wife shouldn’t be any different than you seeing it," Hill said.

Years Later, 9/11 Memorial Bracelet Washes Up on Beach

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a family is reunited with a piece of jewelry that honors the father they lost in 9/11.  CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Thirteen years ago, Michael Otten's family had engraved bracelets made to remember the fallen firefighter.

Otten's son Jonathan treasured his, saying recently:

"It's a whole memory of how my childhood was, what happened, I just remember wearing it for two or three years, up until I lost it."

He was only eight then. And Jonathan lost it in the worst possible place - in the surf on a Long Island beach.

That was ten years ago.  But that's not the end of the story.

Marlene Quinn, an emergency room nurse, was recently walking on a local beach when she looked down and spotted the missing bracelet.

Quinn used the engraving to get the item back home.

“I find comfort in it that it’s a sign. He’s here. He’s with us," Michael Otten's wife Marion said.

"He’s got our backs and it doesn’t get much clearer than this.”
