Typically when you hear the phrase "diving catch," you assume a sporting event is involved. In this case, it was an airport security guard ... catching a baby!

Security agent Grzegorz Paczko was screening passengers at Poland's Katowice Airport last month when he pulled off the amazing feat. Watch:

Closed circuit footage of the catch, recently released online, shows Paczko diving beneath a baby that rolled off the edge of a checkpoint counter.

It's not clear how the baby got to that point in the first place, but wow.

The diving catch happened so quickly, it appeared to surprise the baby's father, who is seen standing right next to the child as he puts on a jacket.

A humble Paczko said the miraculous grab was purely instinctual.

Pope Francis proves he deserves Time's Person of the Year title once again. In a recent interview with La Stompa magazine, Pope Francis publicly supported moms nursing in public, joining the ranks of people ranging from poet Hollie McNish to supermodel Gisele Bundchen who champion breastfeeding in public.

Hey, baby's gotta eat, right? That's what the Pope thinks.

When asked about the state of the world's hungry and what could be done, Pope Francis replied that "people should recycle food and be less wasteful." 

He also said that mothers should not be ashamed to feed their babies when they're hungry and told a story about a time when he encouraged a mother to feed her baby.

"The other day there was a young mother behind one of the barriers with a baby that was just a few month s old. The child was crying its eyes out as I came past. The mother was caressing it. I said to her: madam, I think the child’s hungry. “Yes, it’s probably time…” she replied. “Please give it something to eat!” I said. She was shy and didn’t want to breastfeed in public, while the Pope was passing. I wish to say the same to humanity: give people something to eat!"

While many openly disparage mothers who choose to breastfeed their children in public, the Pope's open acceptance and acknowledgement of the practice as healthy and normal is a breath of fresh air to many.

This is clearly not a man for whom breastfeeding infants is an issue. Can we high-five His Holiness?

Do you think moms should breastfeed in public?

Move over, Becky Jackson! Rion Holcombe is going to college!

Holcombe, a 20 year old with Down Syndrome, was accepted to Clemson University's LIFE program and this video of him finding out he got in has seriously made my Friday morning.

Watch him open the acceptable letter and beam with joy:

Having been accepted, Rion will be moving on to a unique opportunity this fall.

Clemson's LIFE program is a program designed for students with "intellectual disabilities who desire a post-secondary experience on a college campus."

Only 15 students are accepted into the program, which runs for two years.

I never thought I'd say this, but "Go Tigers!"

Best of luck in 2014, Rion Holcombe!

Neal Marshall, a resident of the UK, pleaded guilty to the charge of outraging public decency after he was found naked and masturbating while driving this month.

He was pulled over for speeding after going more than 60 m.p.h.

His lawyer, Adrian Evans, said his client got "carried away."

How do you even do that? One hand on the wheel, the other on ...

Never mind. His attorney did not explain the technique utilized.

"This does not excuse his actions but it goes a way to explain why he was seen doing it," Evans said of Marshall's nude, masturbating joyride through Chester.

This wasn't Marshall's first time being charged with such a crime.

In 2008, the masturbating man was given a six-month community order, and a six-month supervision, after being charged with outraging public decency.

Tre'Viance Markese Walker, a 22 year old Oklahoma man, is behind bars for killing a 5 month old baby on December 7th. 

Walker was busy watching the Oklahoma-Oklahoma State Bedlam game when the baby boy, known at this time as "J.B.," began to cry. He picked up the baby so forcefully that his neck "snapped back" and a few minutes later, Walker dropped the baby into his playpen.

The baby was found unresponsive in his playpen a few hours later. Walker originally denied ever touching the boy but eventually admitted to his aggressive actions.

Walker was allegedly frustrated that he lost $200 on the game. 

He's being held without bond. Hopefully for life.

Frank Schaefer - a pastor for The United Methodist Church in Lebanon, Pennsylvania - was defrocked yesterday for the sin of officiating his gay son's wedding.

Shocked that he could receive such a penalty for an "act of love," Schaefer said he thinks members of the regional Board of Ordained Ministry voted against him reluctantly.

"So many of them came to me and they shook my hand and some hugged me, and so many of them had tears in their eyes," Schaefer told a Fox affiliate. "They said, 'We really don't want to do this, you know that, don't you?'"

Kate Middleton voicemails left by then-boyfriend Prince William were hacked by the News of the World, it was revealed at the former editors' trial.

There's nothing salacious, just highly illegal on the since-shuttered newspaper's part ... and cheesy on William's, since he uses the pet name "babykins."

He also mentions that he was nearly shot with blanks at one point. Ouch?

It is the first time the jury has heard that the Duchess of Cambridge's phone had been hacked, and the transcripts were read aloud in the courtroom.

Former News of the World editors Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson are currently on trial with then-royal editor Clive Goodman and four others.

They are accused of various offenses, which they all deny, including conspiracy to illegally hack voicemails from celebrities, Kate Middleton included.

Another infamous example of their apparent success?

The Duck Dynasty cast released a statement in support of suspended star Phil Robertson, implying that they can't go forward with the show without him.

“We are in discussions with A&E to see what [this] means for the future of Duck Dynasty,” the family statement said of Phil Robertson's suspension.

“We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm.”

The family defended Robertson’s comments and stressed that they are a “family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word.”

“While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible,” the family said.

“Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart’ and ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’"

"Phil would never incite or encourage hate.”

The Robertson family said it has “spent much time in prayer” since learning A&E had suspended Phil over anti-gay comments he made in GQ.

The family also criticized A&E for its actions, saying he was placed on hiatus “for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right.”

Indeed, he sparked a national debate on religion and tolerance in an interview in which the reporter asked him what he considered to be sinful behavior.

The 67-year-old Robertson, who fans of the show know is very religious, said:

Anju Kushwawa, a 28-year-old mother in India, delivered 9 babies at home on Sunday night before delivering a 10th at a local hospital, setting a record in the country.

She was around 12 weeks pregnant and all of the babies passed away before being born.

Doctors believe fertility drugs may have contributed to Kushwawa's multiple losses. After undergoing in-vitro fertilization (IVF) she received very little follow-up medical care. 

Her high-order muliples pregnancy is believed to have been because of a condition known as ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, a complication from fertility medication.

Phil Robertson has been suspended indefinitely from A&E's Duck Dynasty amid the intense backlash over his recent anti-gay comments in GQ.

The family patriarch is famously outspoken and never affair to ruffle feathers (excuse the pun), but these remarks were particularly eyebrow-raising.

Many were offended, but others are attacking A&E, saying Phil Robertson's anti-gay comments are merely statements of his religious and personal beliefs.

Sarah Palin was one of many fans to take to social media in response, charging that the Duck Dynasty star's suspension is an attack on freedom of speech:

“Free speech is an endangered species. The ‘intolerants’ hatin’ and taking on the Duck Dynasty patriarch for voicing his personal opinion are taking on all of us.”

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal also voiced support for his embattled constituent:

“Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the State of Louisiana."
