Track star Derrick Hayes of Columbus High School may have come in first place last week, but the Mighty Cardinals will not continue to the State Championship.
After crossing the finish line, Derrick simply lifted one index finger into the air towards the sky, but now officials have disqualified his win as it is against policy of high school sports to show any excessive act of celebration.
Now, the community has rallied behind Derrick and the apparent injustice the high school is enduring. The KHOU 11 news report has gone viral, and is further featured on DailyMail.
In just a few hours, Charles Ramsey has become an Internet superhero. The everyday man was just hanging out by his Cleveland home when a woman screamed for help at his neighbor’s house. He ended up rescuing her and her daughter from the home.
The woman screamed, “Call 911. My name is Amanda Berry.”
Only after the incident did it register with Charles who he had just saved. Amanda had been missing since 2003 just before her 17th birthday. Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were also saved by Charles.
