Newspaper delivery man passes "Bright White Thing" on road – cry for help makes him slam on brakes

in Trending

When I think back to my childhood, I’m so thankful that I was given the safe and stable upbringing that I had.

At the time, of course, I didn’t know just how lucky I was. I assumed all children had love and affection and care because, well, why wouldn’t they? Of course, that rose-tinted illusion isn’t the reality, and millions of children around the world struggle every single day.

Sadly, some of them are abandoned at an early age, which is what happened to one unfortunate baby girl who was dumped by her mother on a rural California road, her umbilical cord still attached …

When newspaper delivery man Aurelio Fuentes Jr. spotted a “bright white thing” on the road, he believed it to simply be an animal. He cautiously approached it, ready to swerve away if needed, only to hear sounds that conjured an impossible second thought in his mind … it was no animal, but a baby.

Dressed in a soiled onesie, the baby girl was lying abandoned along Madera County in Fresno, shortly after 4:30am on Monday morning.

Aurelio reacted immediately, picking up the girl and placing her in the warmth of his car. Then he called 911 for help.

He had no idea how long she’d been exposed to the elements, but knew that she couldn’t have been delivered long ago as her umbilical cord was still attached!

It was a tear-jerking moment. Someone had left this poor baby to her fate, and if Aurelio hadn’t have been alert she might well have died.

Fortunately, she was rushed to the Valley Children’s hospital alive and is expected to now make a full recovery.

No child ever deserves to be abandoned, and for no other crime than simply being born. Thankfully, there remain people humane enough to know that every soul deserves a life.

This baby girl’s welcome to the world was a rough one, but she’s proven herself a survivor!

Young woman begins singing, only for Tom Jones to grab hand for Dirty Dancing hit that brings house down

in Trending

I’ve never been on a talent show before, so I can only imagine the nerves and anxiety one gets before stepping out onto the stage.

That’s only exacerbated when that talent show happens to be televised; when you’re not only singing/dancing/performing to impress judges and an audience, but also viewers in homes around the country.

In The Voice UK: Blind Auditions, the judges base their decisions purely on someone’s voice – their chairs are turned around so that they can’t see who they’re looking at, thus eliminating any prejudice or bias based on appearance. It’s a tough task for will.i.am, Jennifer Hudson, Olly Murs and Sir Tom Jones, but the idea presents a refreshing spin on an industry that’s come under fire before for being too much about looks …

If they convince the judges to hit the button and turn their chairs round, contestants are then given the chance to tell a little about themselves and strike up a conversation once they’ve stopped singing. That’s exactly what happened when young singer and actress Bethzienna Williams delivered her rendition of “Cry to Me” by Solomon Burke.

It was Tom Jones who was most interested in Williams, wondering chiefly how she knew that particular song. When she told him it was due to her love of Dirty Dancing, he confessed to having a bit of an affinity to the track as well.

That was all it took for the expectation train to leave the station. No sooner had Jones admitted to singing the song that very same summer (last year), did people begin to call for him to join Williams on stage and perform an impromptu duet.

Never one to let a crowd down, Jones, famous for iconic hits such as “What’s New Pussycat”, “Sex Bomb”, and “She’s a Lady”, grabbed a mic and began to sing.

For Williams it must have been a dream come true … a legend of the music scene standing opposite her on stage and belting out one of her favorite songs. What’s more, instead of letting the moment overcome her, Williams played her part perfectly, leaving the audience to behold a spectacle worthy of the rapturous cheers and applause.

Watch Jones and Williams’ duet in the video below:
