A wayward cat is safe after it was rescued from a dam in Indiana.
The Huntington County Sheriff's Department writes on Facebook that a fisherman spotted the feline stranded on the spillway at the J. Edward Roush Lake dam.
Officers could not reach the animal, so Army Corps of Engineers workers decided to help.
The workers got permission to shut down the flow of water, and they launched a boat. Video shows that when the boat reached the spillway, the cat slid all the way down into the arms of the rescuers before it hit the water.
An Idaho woman who thought she was gaining weight because of menopause discovered she actually had a 50-pound tumour that had been growing inside her for decades.
Boise television station KTVB reports Brenda Cridland of Meridian chalked up her weight gain to ageing, but when her health started to quickly decline about eight months ago, she decided to see a doctor.
That's when a CT scan revealed she had an enormous tumour that had displaced her organs and was cutting off the blood supply to her brain. Cridland said she underwent two-and-a-half hours of surgery to remove the mass, which luckily was benign.
Cridland says she lost 65 pounds in the process, and learnt the tumour was caused by undiagnosed endometriosis. She says she ignored red flags about her health, and hopes her story will remind other women that they shouldn't avoid seeing a doctor.
