PBS Reporter Miles O'Brien Has His Arm Amputated After MINOR Injury! Full Story HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsHealthInjurySurgeryScary!

miles obrien pbs cnn reporter arm amputated minor injury asia

That's right, we said MINOR injury. Meaning, it wasn't serious.

Not at first, anyway, but the accident happened while Mike O'Brien was on assignment in Asia — and now he's said earlier this month, he had to get his arm amputated just above the elbow.

Apparently after the injury he was diagnosed with "acute compartment syndrome", which blocks blood flow in an enclosed space in the body… and he was given the decision between 'a life and a limb.'

So he had it properly removed!

The incredible thing is that Miles has continued working for the network despite the surgery.

Now, we bet you're all wondering what the minor injury was, right? Well, it happened when he

Wave Of Support Pours In For 2-Year-Old Girl Who Lost Feet In Disastrous Lawn Mower Accident

Filed under: Baby BlabberInspirationSad SadHealthFamily

One of the best qualities that most humans have is that when tragedy strikes - there's usually a number of people who step up to help out.

So when a 2-year-old girl suffered a horrific set of circumstances - she lost both her feet after her father accidentally ran her over with his lawnmower - a number of people from the Florida community have offered to lend their support to their neighbors-in-need.

The most helpful of these good Samaritans may be a former wrestler, now an amputee, who's offered to donate $100,000 to the family, so they can secure a lifetime supply of prosthetic limbs for the girl.

Here's what the potential donor said:

Horrific! Toddler’s Feet Amputated After Lawn Mower Accident!

Filed under: Baby BlabberSad SadFamily

This is AWFUL!

A two-year-old girl, whose family lives in a suburb about 25 miles north of St. Petersburg, Florida, had to have both her feet amputated after a horrific lawnmower accident.

The girl's father Jeremiah Nugent was riding his lawn mower when he saw his wife come running out of the house waving her arms.

The father thought she was telling him he was about to run over something, so he backed up and realized he had just run over his daughter.

He immediately turned off the lawn mower, but it continued to roll down the driveway with their daughter still trapped underneath it.

The toddler's legs were amputated below the knees, but reports say the lawnmower had severed her feet below her ankle.

The girl was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital and appeared to be in stable condition. This tragic event is believed to have been accidental.

This is so sad!

We hope the parents and this little girl find the strength to overcome this horrible set of circumstances.

Help Save An Injured Dog's Life!

Filed under: CharityPuppyDogRescue

Ever thought it'd be amazing to be one of those people bringing blankets and toys to poor outdoor dogs or rescuing dogs from abusive, cruel households?

Well now you can literally help to save a dog's life!

Valentine is a 10-month old pit bull puppy.

She randomly walked into a cement plant where workers found her with her mouth taped shut, rocks and dirt in her stomach, her one front paw broken and the other front paw hanging on only by a piece of skin.

The workers gathered around to help her as she wagged her tail, even when on the brink of death, she was just so happy to receive some friendly attention.

They believe she was beaten then dragged behind a truck.

Valentine is now at The Bear Valley Animal Hospital in California.

She has received several life saving surgeries, should survive her injuries and is going to be fit with a prosthetic paw for the one that had to be amputated.

But she needs help to pay for all her medical bills.

And that's where U come in.

All U need to do is donate HERE and U can literally help save a dog's life!
