Forget being Man's Best Friend. One canine in New York City proved that last Wednesday that he's also Man's Most Amazing Savior.

While waiting on a Harlem subway platform, a blind 61-year old named Cecil Williams passed out and fell on to the tracks.

As verified by multiple witnesses to The New York Post, his guide dog Orlando immediately initially tried to grab his owner's leg and then jumped in to save Williams after he tumbled all the way down.

"He went down, and the dog jumped down," an onlooker tells the newspaper. "He wasn't pulled. [Orlando] was kissing him, trying to get him to move."

Cherilyn McGraw, a special education teacher from North Carolina, is mourning the loss of her husband, U.S. Marine Gunnery Sgt. Brandon McGraw.

Brandon died in a tragic skydiving accident in Australia last weekend, a trip that Cherilyn had won on The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in January.

On Saturday, the married couple headed to Euroa Skydive, an Australian skydiving school, and went up in the same airplane to make the jump.

Employee Ian Matthews said that Brandon, who recently returned from Afghanistan, was an experienced skydiver with more than "a few jumps under his belt."

McGraw, Matthews recalled, "watched his wife do a tandem jump before exiting the plane. He floated for three or four minutes with a good canopy."

"A short time before landing, he suddenly began turning his parachute dramatically to the left and right and eventually crashed into the ground."

Harvard University student Eldo Kim has been named in a criminal complaint alleging he was responsible for bomb threats at the college this week.

His stunt led Harvard school officials to delay some final exams that had been scheduled for Monday, which it turns out was exactly his intention.

Totally worth it.

Kim, 20, of Cambridge, Mass., allegedly e-mailed bomb threats at about 8:30 a.m. on Monday to offices associated with Harvard, including to University police.

The subject line in each of the messages read "bombs placed around campus" and cited "shrapnel bombs" in four buildings on the school's main campus.

"2/4. guess correctly. be quick or they will go off soon," they said.

The Harvard police called in the FBI, ATF, Secret Service, Cambridge Police Department and the Boston Police Department, as well as local first responders.

When doctors told Texas resident Morrissia Sauer she only had a few more months to live, she created a bucket list of items to check off before she died.

Her #1 request? Getting married at a church.

Sauer, who's currently receiving care from Silverado Hospice in Texas, has been diagnosed with congestive heart failure, local station KHOU reports.

Sauer and her husband Johnny were married eight years ago by a justice of the peace, but Sauer, a devout Catholic, always wanted a traditional ceremony.

In order to have her marriage recognized by the church, she wanted to get married in one. Local businesses rallied together to make Sauer's dream a reality.

A Detroit woman allegedly trying to "protect" her pet dog from a stray cat ended up paying a painful price in an amazing viral video making the rounds today.

Short story: Even if you dislike cats, do not attempt to shoo them away by kicking snow in one's face. Cats possess agile, ninja-like skills and precision.

Don't make one retaliate. Not worth the risk. If you do, this might happen:

After the cat responds by pouncing on her and mauling her grill, it choke-slams her to the ground like a WWE wrestler before she beats a hasty retreat.

That's a Top 10 Internet Cat Fight right there ... albeit a one-sided one.

Holding her injured head, she leaves the dog she was allegedly "protecting" behind as the cat approaches the unattended fence. WAY TO GO LADY!

Hopefully the dog decided to take heed and let the visitor do its thing. Usually they just wanna prowl and be left alone anyway. No need to start $h!t.

While the woman clearly didn't expect the cat to attach itself to her face in response to her actions, you can't blame the critter for reacting like that.

No one likes snow.

The Internet. It's can do more than help you find Kate Upton nude photos or crazy Tila Tequila videos.

It can help a little girl reunite with her lost stuffed animal in Great Britain. Allow us to explain:

Last Friday, a woman named Lauren Bishop Vranch discovered a stuffed lion sitting all by his lonesome during a train ride at Kings Cross.

Upon handing it over to a train employee, Lauren was told the item would just be left someplace random… and she was having none of that!

  • Stuffed Animal Found
  • Lost Lion Found

So Lauren took the lion with her to Newcastle and posted a photo of him on Twitter, including along with it a caption that read: "Found this well loved little dude on an East Coast train at Kings Cross - let's find the owner, Twitter!"

We've seen some impressive performances of Anna Kendrick's "Cups" routine from the film Pitch Perfect. There was this tap dancing rendition, for example.

We've also witnessed some epic fails. Seriously, don't try Cups in the car.

But the following has to be right up there on anyone's list, as over 1,500 staff members and students from Collège Saint-Bernard in Drummondville, Quebec gathered this month to take on the intricate, melodic task.

Watch them clink and bag their cups in perfect harmony now:

The alleged war against Christmas took its battle to a new low front this week:

A Walmart in Phoenix, where a Salvation Army volunteer named Kristina Vindiola says she was wishing customers "happy holidays" when a woman stopped and approached her.

"The lady looked at me,” Vindiola told an ABC affiliate. “I thought she was going to put money in the kettle. She came up to me and said, 'Do you believe in God?' And she says, ‘You're supposed to say Merry Christmas,' and that's when she hit me."

Vindiola says the lady struck her in the arm and then went inside the store like nothing happened.

It didn't involve a racist note on a receipt, but another unfortunate situation went down inside a restaurant last week.

Robert Chambers was enjoying a holiday party with co-workers at Morton's Steakhosue in Nashville when he placed a wool beanie on his head toward the end of the meal.

When asked by a manager to remove the item, Chambers explained he needs the extra warmth because he's a cancer patient undergoing chemotherapy.

But Fox 17 reports this didn't satisfy the manager, who said Chambers should have brought a doctor's note and/or called ahead to be seated privately.

Angry words were exchanged between Chambers' wife and the manager, with the party storming out to leave and the manager actually calling police over the incident.
