Heroic Man Dives Into Mud To Rescue Impala At Zimbabwe National Park [Video]

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

If you saw another person in distress, would you help? Most people would likely respond with a “yes.” But change the scenario: if you saw an innocent animal in help — even a frightened, thrashing impala, would you still take time to assist? It’s impossible to know until the moment arrives. But fortunately for an impala at the Zimbabwe National Park, a heroic man nearby wasn’t about to let her die.

GoodNewsNetwork reports that after the impala apparently fell in the mud, it unsuccessfully tried to free itself from the muck. Escape attempt after escape attempt, it failed however. Exhausted from the efforts, it was close to drowning. Then, she was spotted by the right man.

The intelligent individual took a moment to tie a safety rope around his waist. Then, he crawled toward the frightened animal. As soon as he reached the impala, the man tied the rope around it legs. He then told his friends to pull them both to safety.

When the impala made it to safe, dry land, it was too tired to move at first. But then, they poured some water in her mouth and she hopped up and ran away. The incredible rescue can be viewed below. For obvious reasons, it has gone viral.



Mankind has become accustomed to believing he/she is at the top of the food chain and that as a result, no other lives matter. But the contrary is true. The ecosystem thrives because of the complicated symbiosis between all life forms. The compassion the man in the video above extended to the impala is the same every person should extend to all creatures. When this happens, the world will be a drastically different place.

[WATCH] Heroic Employee Wrongly Accused Of The Crime He Helped Stop

The City of Decatur Police Department is doing an internal review of an investigation that led to the wrongful arrest of a former Verizon employee who helped stop a crime.

The review comes after 11Alive’s Jennifer Leslie began asking questions about why an investigator relied on the wrong surveillance video as evidence against Omar Malcolm, 31.

Malcolm was one of two employees working at a Verizon store in Decatur on January 23, 2016, when two men in hoodies walked in and tried to steal an iPad from one of the demonstration tables.

Store surveillance video shows Malcolm’s co-worker, Armani Grant, grab one of the men before Malcolm runs up and tackles the other one.

“Was it instinct that kicked in?” Leslie asked Malcolm.

“It was definitely instinct because I’m not a very truculent person, not very aggressive at all,” he explained.

Malcolm got the iPad back, but the thieves got away.

“So you’re probably thinking you’ve got a piece of evidence for police?” Leslie asked.

“Exactly,” Malcolm said. “As far as fingerprints, I thought they were dead to rights because they didn’t have any gloves on or anything.”

A customer called 911 to report the crime.

“What did they take?” the 911 operator asked the customer.

“They didn’t take anything,” he said. “They got beat up by the guys in the store.”

Decatur Police responded and examined the iPad for fingerprints but never interviewed Malcolm or listed him as a witness or employee in the incident report.

Three months later, police came back with a match to Omar Malcolm, the same store employee who tackled one of the suspects and grabbed the iPad.

His prints were on file with police from a misdemeanor charge that was dismissed years ago.

Heroic Senator Vows to Hold Defense Bill Hostage Unless Congress Ends Iraq & Afghan Wars

The Senate on Monday took up the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), passing a motion in an 89-3 vote which allowed the legislation to proceed. That action essentially limits the procedural debate on the legislation and moves the NDAA to a full vote as early as Wednesday morning.

However, Paul made clear on his Twitter account that he had every intention of slowing down the passage of the NDAA – which sets forth the Pentagon’s budget and major programs for the next fiscal year beginning October 1 – until he was guaranteed a vote on amending the AUMF in Afghanistan in Iraq.

“I will object to all procedural motions and amendments unless and until my amendment is made in order and we vote on these wars,” Paul wrote.

He went on to note the length of time that the US military has been present in Afghanistan and Iraq.

“We have been there for 16 years. It is time for them to end. It is time for Congress to vote on whether or not they should end.”

Paul noted that the Senate was in a “quorum call,” unable to act because of his protest.

He vowed to continue the protest until Congress agreed to vote on whether or not to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Paul noted that his protest was for the soldiers, adding that “hypocrites” are happy to “pretend concern over our constitutional duty to declare war” but are happy to “block any vote on ending any of our 7 current wars.”

The senator said that he “sits nearly alone,” but he is happy to fight by himself if needed.

In addition to Paul, the NDAA cloture motion was opposed by Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Oregon Democrat Ron Wyden.

Paul took aim at both the “anti-war left” and the “conservative right” in his series of tweets.

“Where is the anti-war left demanding the wars end? Where is the constitional [sic] conservative right demanding Congress reclaim its war powers?” he wrote.

Although an increasing number of lawmakers have been calling on Congress to pass a new AUMF for Afghanistan, Paul has largely been alone in his mission to put a deadline on Congress for a vote.

Paul did appear to strike at least a partial deal with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) about an hour after initially issuing his threats to delay the NDAA passage, with McConnell guaranteeing Paul four hours on Tuesday to state his AUMF reasoning on the Senate floor, the Washington Post reported.

However, that wasn’t enough to get Paul to back down, with the senator later reiterating his plan to “continue to fight, and if necessary, object, to continue this debate, secure a vote, and force Congress to do its duty.”

The war in Afghanistan, which began in 2001 as a US response to the September 11 attacks, is the longest war in US history.

Idaho Police Department Thanks 'Heroic' Nurse For Standing Up To Utah Cop

An Idaho police department is hailing nurse Alex Wubbels as a hero for standing up to Salt Lake City Detective Jeff Payne, who tried to take blood from a patient without a warrant or consent.

That patient, it turns out, is William Gray, a reserve officer in Rigby, a city about 15 miles north of Idaho Falls. 

“The Rigby Police Department would like to thank the nurse involved and hospital staff for standing firm, and protecting Officer Gray’s rights as a patient and victim,” the agency said on Facebook. “Protecting the rights of others is truly a heroic act.”

Gray, who is also a truck driver, was badly injured in July when a suspect in a car fleeing police slammed into his truck. The suspect died, and Gray was flown to the University of Utah Burn Center. 

In the hospital, police tried to take blood from Gray, who was not under arrest and not conscious and therefore unable to consent to the blood draw. In addition, police did not have a warrant. 

Wubbels told Payne he could not draw blood under those circumstances and even got other hospital officials on the phone to confirm that policy to the detective. 

She was arrested, and eventually released without being charged. 

Payne is now facing a criminal investigation. Another officer is also on leave as the incident is investigated. 

The Rigby Police Department said it was not aware of the incident surrounding the blood draw until last week.

“It is important to remember that Officer Gray is the victim in this horrible event, and that at no time was he under any suspicion of wrongdoing,” the department said. “As he continues to heal, we would ask that his family be given privacy, respect, and prayers for continued recovery and peace.”
