Amy Van Dyken-Rouen & Tom Rouen

This story makes us believe in miracles!

As we previously reported, six-time gold medalist Amy Van Dyken-Rouen got into a beyond-terrible ATV accident and completely severed her spinal cord back in June.

She was rushed to the hospital with her husband Tom Rouen by her side, but was in such bad condition, the married couple actually said their final goodbyes before she went into surgery.

That's unbelievably heartbreaking.

Lourdes Leon Celebrates Her Summer Before College With A Dip In The Ocean!

lourdes leon is almost a grown woman

She's turning into a young woman right before our very eyes!

Lourdes Leon has been having a splendid vacation in Cannes, France with her family this summer, and it seems like the daughter of Madonna is basically a full grown adult!

Which is crazy to think about because like seriously - when did this happen?! We remember when she was just a cute little girl!

Lourdes was recently spotted this past Friday swimming in the Atlantic Ocean where she took some time to drift in the water after doing some rough-housing with her brother Rocco and her momma's boyfriend Timor.

We absolutely LOVE the necklace we spotted her wearing that bore her name on it — that along with her bikini top absolutely proves how stylish this lil' lady is!

Madonna obviously taught her well!

We can't wait to keep watching her grow into her own!

They've usually got some beef over some fur Kim wore or some selfie with an imprisoned zoo animal.

We're assuming ever since Kim was flour-bombed by a PETA activist, there's now no chance of a reconciliation.

But that doesn't mean PETA is wrong to criticize her for swimming with dolphins!

Sure, lots of people do it, but that doesn't mean you aren't invading the already small space in which a dolphin is stuck, living out their entire life there.

PETA's Senior Vice President Lisa Lange said:

We thought the most dangerous thing in the ocean was a shark… but as it turns out, it might be bacteria!

Health officials in Florida say a strain of Vibrio vulnificus is to blame for sending dozens of beach-goers to the hospital this summer, with 10 people dying from their infections so far.

This bacteria is very similar to cholera and thrives in the warm salt waters off the Florida coast.
