The elderly may seem like easy targets to thieves, but as this story shows, that isn’t always the case. On Monday, an unidentified 90-year-old California woman teamed up with a good Samaritan to chase down a mugger who robbed her outside a convenience store. Is this the beginning of a new crime fighting duo?
Like most tourists in Florida, Gus Hertz was probably just hoping for some relaxing time in the sun. Instead, the Virginia man became a hero after rescuing three people in two separate incidents over a two day period. Well, that puts us to shame.

Although he was run over by a car at 14-months-old and paralyzed from the waist down, Patrick Ivison didn’t let his disability stop him. In fact, the California native learned how to kayak, ski, play rugby and even surf. And now he has one more amazing feat to add to his accomplishments after managing to walk during his high school graduation on Tuesday.
As definitive proof that no good deed goes unpunished, an unidentified Oregon man in his 50s has contracted the plague after rescuing a mouse from the jaws of a cat. Gah! Next time, just let nature take its course, pal.

Wait, you mean the couple from Montana didn’t want the three-bedroom, 2.5 bath fixer-upper???
