Officer John Holder was doing a routine wellness check on 73-year-old Dorothy Shepherd when he realized she was in pretty rough shape after having just gone through knee and back surgeries. He gave her his phone number and told her to call if she needed help.
Ever since, Holder has been helping Shepherd get wherever she needs to go, whether it's a doctor appointment or the grocery store. Chris Cuomo has the full story.
Paul Rosolie says he was eaten alive by a giant green anaconda, the largest and most powerful snake in the world.
The herpetologist, naturalist and author presented himself as prey to the snake after putting on a special reinforced suit with helmet and devices to measure his vital signs, he says in a press release on the Discovery Channel website.
"She got me right in the face," he said. "The last thing I saw was her mouth wide open before everything went black. As this happened, she wrapped around me and took me off of my feet. I felt the suit cracking. It felt as if my arms were ripping out of their sockets."
Rosolie doesn't say much about the experience in the western Amazon, which was filmed in advance, because he wants everybody to tune into Discovery Channel's "Eaten Alive" show 9 p.m. Sunday ET.
From the streets of California to the stores of New York City, protesters are making sure no one forgets the case of Eric Garner.
But some are doing so more violently than others.
Demonstrators flooded a highway in Oakland, California, late Sunday night, prompting a heated standoff in the freeway between protesters and the California Highway Patrol.
Some threw explosives, bottles and rocks at officers, authorities said. Highway Patrol Sgt. Diana McDermott said it wasn't clear what type of explosives were thrown, but she said some in the crowd had Molotov cocktails and M-80 firecrackers.
