A high school senior with autism stole the show at his graduation ceremony on June 9, as footage shared to Facebook shows.
Sef Scott, who is a student at Plano Senior High in Texas, is usually nonverbal but he stepped up to the podium at the ceremony to deliver a powerful speech to his classmates. The speech, which he aptly titled Unexpected, sees Scott tell the audience he has a social communication disorder which means he rarely speaks.

He goes onto explain that his brother, who survived a brain tumor and who often gives speeches on what he’s overcome, inspired him to speak and even helped him write his speech.

His message to always do the unexpected was met with a standing ovation from his peers and their parents, and a video of the speech was shared to Facebook by the Plano Independent School District. It had over 120,000 views at the time of writing.

A 6-year-old boy has died as a result of an attack by the family dog.

Family friend Rick Vaughan said that the boy died after the pit bull attacked him on May 24. Vaughan told Altoona Mirror that the boy's father was cutting grass at the time, but rushed inside after the mother screamed. He then saw "the dog on the boy."

“It was already too late,” Vaughan said, referring to the father's efforts to free his boy from the dog, via the Mirror.

The dog that mauled the boy is now dead, although reports did not specify when or how it died. The family also gave their other dog to police after the tragedy.

“His mother is taking it very, very hard,” the 32-year-old Vaughan said, via the Mirror. “He passed away in her arms.”

The Blair County Coroner said the boy died of blunt-force trauma. The police are still investigating, according to WTAJ. Counselors were called in to assist students and staff at Baker Elementary School, the school the boy attended.

This Scottish Pup Isn’t Too Keen on Walks

Compared to other pups, Samwise isn’t too keen on walkies. He doesn’t budge when his owner Daniel Merrable asks him if he wants to go for a walk on May 19.

The eight-month-old labrador can think of other things to do, like, sleeping on his back with one of his paws in the air, as seen in this video uploaded to Twitter.

His owner, Daniel Merrable, told Storyful how he persuades Samwise to leave his Glasgow flat: “I usually have to coax him out of our flat with treats we place on the steps.”

According to Daniel once Samwise is persuaded to go outside he usually enjoys himself.

Bride and Groom Climb Massive Rock During Ceremony Without Ropes

2018-05-17    0 views
This is the moment a bride and groom didn't tie the knot and climbed a massive rock without ropes - with her in HEELS.

Newlyweds and experienced rock climbers Tom, 26, and Elaine Bunn, 24, reached the summit of the tor in their full wedding attire.

Elaine tackled the 15m (50FT) Haytor in her full bridal gown and heels while Tom decided he'd take on the steepest section in his wedding suit without using ropes.

They got hitched nearby but during a break between speeches and dinner they fled to the Dartmoor landmark to take a series of unforgettable pictures.

The couple of Exeter, Devon, met eight years ago at a local climbing wall and have shared a passion for it ever since.

Elaine, a civil engineer, said: "We have climbed on Dartmoor countless times and fell in love surrounded by it's beauty so climbing on our big day only felt natural, although I usually wear more appropriate attire.

"Tom is such a good climber that I wasn't so much worried for his safety as that of his new suit and shoes. Dartmoor granite can be sharp.

"Getting up Haytor in my heels and wedding dress was not too bad, it was nice to not have to carry all the climbing kit for a change.

"Most climbers know however that getting down is often as difficult as getting up and this was definitely the case for me.

"Luckily my new husband was on hand with a fireman's lift. judging by their faces, I think a few tourists may have got a bit more than they bargained for on this day!

"I couldn't be happier to start the adventure of marriage with an adventure on Haytor and thankfully our wedding photographers were also up for the challenge.

"It was such a good thing to do and has given us some incredible pictures and memories."

The talented pair married at Colehayes Park, Bovey Tracey, on Saturday and the pictures were taken by Cornwall Wedding Photographers.

Elaine added: "We were lucky we had good weather and a handy gap between the toast and cream tea and dinner.

"We just grabbed the chance and shot up.

"We are both quite adventurous so it was the perfect thing to do."

Tom, who is a manager of the Exeter Quay Climbing Wall, said the idea for the climb started as an idea for their wedding cake.

He added: "We wanted to have a cake that was half traditional and half rock faced with Elaine and i climbing on it and it turned into a figurine of me climbing up to her.

"Because the venue was only 10 minutes from Haytor we decided to recreate the cake scene for real.

"We left the guests as they were about to have dinner, both in our full wedding attire and Elaine even kept her heels on. She went up the easiest side on the back but I then free-climbed the harder route.

"We just thought it would look pretty cool. I proposed on the top of a glacier in the French Alps two years ago and we are now on our honeymoon climbing mountains so there is a definite theme.

"Elaine was on board straight away and thought it was a great idea."

Sacramento Police released security and body cam footage showing the May 4 arrest of a man who left the engine of his car on while parked outside a 7-Eleven, after a video of the arrest posted by the man’s girlfriend was shared widely online.

Erin Darby Ortiz posted footage showing a police officer grappling with Craig Williams and handcuffing him on the ground after Williams left his car running while he went into the store. Darby Ortiz wrote that she and Williams had never heard of California’s anti-idling law before, and that Williams was made to spend the day in jail. The long-standing idling law says it’s illegal to walk away from a stopped car with its engine running on a public road.

Sacramento Police on May 9 posted body cam footage of the incident, saying Williams was uncooperative and refused to provide identification to the officer, as well as citing the no-idling law.

A retired Wisconsin prison guard has eaten his 30,000th Big Mac, nearly 46 years after eating his first.

64-year-old Don Gorske of Fond du Lac recorded the milestone at a local McDonald's Friday, May 4. Gorske says he's eaten at least one Big Mac almost every day since May 17, 1972. He has kept most of the boxes or receipts or has made specific notes in calendars that he's kept.

Guinness World Records has recognized Gorske for the most Big Macs consumed since 2016, when his tally was 28,788. Gorske says he's eaten so many because he just loves hamburgers.

He says his cholesterol and blood pressure are normal.
