There is a road in Louisiana called "The Dragon".
Josh Johnston frequently rides this road, but a trip two weekends ago was out of the ordinary.
A man and woman pulled up on a bike and said they heard somebody hollering.
Josh looked down the ravine to see if he could find anyone and saw guy down there, but he was just looking at him with this blank stare. He wasn’t saying anything or moving. Josh then started the dangerous climb down to help.
Philip Polito was killed when he slowed down and was hit from behind by his friend Kevin Diepenbrock’s bike and they both went off the road and down into a ravine.
Kevin had 12 broken ribs and a total of 17 breaks, some of which are hairline fractures on his spine, two punctured lungs, bruises and scratches.
Kevin, recorded cell phone videos for his loved ones, not knowing if he’d ever see them again.
He was there for 30 hours, yelling for help and sharing tons of other motorcycles drive by
It was hard for rescuers to get there and there was no cell service. Johnston’s friend, still on the highway, called Blount County rescue crews to pull Diepenbrock out.
Josh said he was in a flight or fight mode. Only thing he could think of was get him out of there no matter what.

A security guard was running along the sidewalk. A bit farther ahead a Duke police officer was running, too.

He pulled over and offered to help.
The policeman climbed into his minivan and they tracked down a man who had apparently fled from the hospital and was up the road trying to catch a bus. They spot a guy in hospital scrubs and no shoes and the cop says, ‘That’s him,’”
Keith cut across two traffic lanes, opened the door and said, ‘Go get him, officer.’” Keith, who is a longtime bartender, played football, and wrestled stuck around to watch. Before long he realized he had to jump in.
The scrubs guy got the cop pinned down pretty good, and Keith didn’t know if he was going to go for the (officer’s) gun.”
So he pulled the man off the officer and held him down until more police arrived.
Chief of Police presented him with a challenge coin— a military medallion awarded for special achievements — and a letter of thanks.

Haus the German Shepherd
A venomous Eastern diamondback rattlesnake appeared in the DeLuca family's backyard where 7-year-old Molly was playing, the heroic dog stood his ground. The grandmother, who was standing in the doorway of the family's screened-in pool, saw Haus jumping forward and snapping back three times. When she walked toward them to check it out, she realized a snake had approached them and the dog was protecting Molly, keeping himself between the child and the snake.
Doctors initially thought Haus had only been bitten once, because the typical instinct for dogs is to flee. It wasn't until they shaved down his fur that they realized he was bitten three times on his right front leg. The dog is being treated with painkillers and anti-venom medication and is expected to recover, although he may have some kidney damage. Money donated via Go Fund Me is helping to pay his expensive medical costs.
UPDATE: Haus' story was showcased on Good Morning America on Wednesday May 18th. His vet said Haus should be going home that day!
Mary is a lifeguard supervisor with the Galveston Island Beach Patrol. She was patrolling the beach on a Saturday when the waves were choppy, winds were strong and five people were swimming too deep in an area which is typically a dangerous place to swim. They were out too far and weren't strong swimmers and they panicked. As she tried to rescue a the group, they were beginning to overpower her. She would go under water to regain her breath and strength and grab back onto them.
Fighting to stay in control, she says she experienced a wave of strength. She kept telling them not to give up because nothing's worth giving up on a life, especially yours. So she wasn't going to fail. She didn't fail that day balancing a few people at a time on a buoy, she managed to swim each person back on shore to first responders.
