Mason Wells is an American teenager who has been traveling as a Mormon missionary. He's either very lucky, or very unlucky. To date, he has survived three terrorist attacks after suffering injuries in the latest attack on Brussels. 

He was apparently a block away from the finish line during the Boston Marathon bombing and hours away from Paris during the terrorist attacks in November. 

Thankfully, he is expected to make a full recovery. You can watch an interview with his family here:

It happens so fast but the reporter, Alex Savage, managed to jump out of the way in the nick of time. He posted a follow up video on Facebook assuring everyone he was okay and crediting his photographer, Chip Vaughan, with shouting the alert that saved his life.

Close Call!! Almost got hit by a car live on-air, heart still pounding.

Nicole Sedgebeer found herself stranded in London after missing the last train home. She didn't know what to do (besides burst into tears) until a homeless man named Mark helped her out. 

She explains on her Facebook post that she never expected someone like Mark to come to her aide:

I hope this story makes people look twice when they see a homeless person. Last night I missed my last train home and when I finally got to Euston to wait till the morning, the station was locked. Just as I was about to burst into drunken tears I met my homeless friend Mark. He said he would take me to a cafe that was open as it was too dangerous to walk by myself. He left me after a coffee and a chat and explained that he had to go get his sleeping bag but he would be back at 5 to walk me back to the station. (Me being a typical bitch didn't believe he would come back) It got past 5 and he was a no show. As I got round the corner my homeless friend Mark was running down the street towards me. Not only did he turn up but he had to get a bus to come get me. This man who I probably would of avoided eye contact with if he asked for spare change, completely changed such a negative event into the most eye opening event in my life. Mark you are one special man, I will never look down on a homeless person again This was also his first ever selfie!

The Flight of the Conchords are going on tour. It appears that this is more than a reunion tour, according to the website details:

Jemaine and Bret have new material, which they’ll be showcasing on the road this summer. The “Flight of the Conchords Sing Flight of the Conchords” tour begins on June 11th in the great city of Cleveland, OH and ends July 27th in Los Angeles, CA.


Even if you're not a fan, you may have heard of Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement. Their careers in the States really took off after the HBO TV show 'Flight of the Conchords' based on their comedic two-man band. This is very exciting news for fans. Although they've mentioned a movie in the works, according to Wikipedia they haven't gotten together for a Flight of the Conchords performance since 2012 as part of a Red Nose Day charity video from New Zealand:

This mom and daughter are clearly taking inspiration from a viral picture of a young lady, her twin and her mom. No one could tell the difference between the mom and daughters. Apparently the same has been said of Donna Galt and her teenage daughter Mya.

Although in this case, someone saying it doesn't make it true. But hey, they still got on TV. This was a top story on ITV's 'This Morning' who just can't tell the difference between these two.

The overwhelming response looked kind of like this:

Death by meteorite is a very, very uncommon way to go. Most objects from space disintegrate while entering the Earth's atmosphere. A man in Tamil Nadu, India may be the first person to actually be killed by a falling meteorite in at least 200 years, according to NDTV. Scientists are still analyzing the scrap of material that is believed to be the meteorite for confirmation.  The explosion from the impact also shattered windows in a nearby school building but everyone inside remained unhurt. 



A similar thing happened in Russia in 2013 and it was caught on film. You can see the meteor streaking through the sky on its way to strike a building.
