On August 11th, on the I-10 Freeway in Gulfport, Mississippi, trucker David Fredericksen witnessed a horrific crash after a Lincoln Town Car crashed into an 18-wheeler's gas tank and went up in a fireball.
While his trucking partner Walter Letterman warned David to not try and save anyone, David decided to do so anyway with his fire extinguisher - a decision that ended up being oh-so-right!

Calvin Harris was almost in another world of Payne.
We reported how crazy Miley Cyrus' 21st birthday bash was at Beacher's Madhouse, which had booty-shaking strippers galore, but apparently the bash almost got too out of hand!
At one point, there was a flight approaching Calvin that was not cleared for takeoff by the FAA.
According to Calvin's Twitter account, a flying little person almost knocked him out, but not before One Direction's Liam Payne stepped in for the rescue:

Disney couldn't have created a better Prince Charming!
He's not only handsome, sweet, and funny. He's a real life hero too!
While serving as a flight lieutenant in the Royal Air Force, Prince William helped rescue some Russian seamen whose cargo vessel sank in the Irish Sea.
He was the co-pilot in a four-man rescue helicopter crew who found the men after responding to a mayday call that went out around 2 am when the vessel's hull cracked.
The team saved two men and have since been out on the hunt for five others who remain missing. The body of one of the crewmembers has already been recovered.
We wish them the best of luck in their rescue mission. What a harrowing experience!
