Man Jumps Headfirst Into Moving Car To Save Driver Having Seizure jumpincar1Dixon Police Department

Dramatic footage has emerged of the moment a heroic man leapt out of his own car and jumped headfirst in to a moving car to save a driver having a seizure.

The dashcam video, from the Illinois police department, shows the blue car rolling through traffic, through a red light and veering off into a different lane at a busy intersection.

The car then approaches a 4×4, which backs up away from the blue car. The quick-thinking driver, Randy Tompkins, gets out of his vehicle and, noticing something is wrong with the other driver, promptly dives head first through the open passenger-side window of the blue car to help the driver and bring the vehicle to a stop.

You can watch the heroic moment here:

Speaking to the Chicago Tribune, Randy said:

He had his arms up by his chest. I didn’t know if the guy was gonna push the gas, jerk the wheel or whatever, so I waited as long as I could to back up.

Once he got about a half-car length away from me, I parked my truck at an angle and jumped out of my vehicle.

Randy then put two fingers into the driver’s mouth to stop him swallowing his own tongue.

He said:

I did that really fast, and then I stopped the car. I was worried, but I would do that for anybody. It just happened to be I was at the right place at the right time.

A statement from the Dixon police department said:

Officers observed a blue passenger car traveling north on North Galena Avenue and had disobeyed the red traffic signal at that intersection. The car proceeded through the intersection, almost striking several vehicles.

A truck, that was southbound in the 1300 block of North Galena Avenue, had to back up to avoid being struck by the car. The driver of the truck could see the driver of the car and observed that something looked medically wrong. The driver of the truck (later identified as Dixon resident Randy Tompkins) exited his vehicle, ran up to the car and without hesitation jumped into the car through the passenger side window in an attempt to stop it. Tompkins was able to get the car in park just as officers approached the vehicle as well. The driver of the vehicle was found to be having a seizure.

Tompkins and the two officers stood by until Dixon City Fire arrived and transported the driver to KSB Hospital. We want to thank Tompkins for his heroism and for coming to a complete stranger’s aid!

In a later Facebook post from the hero Randy Tompkins himself, he said:

Wow I just saved this guy’s life in the blue car i jumped in his car he was having a seizure at the wheel the cops said they saw me jump in his window like dukes of Hazzard it was crazy I saw him coming at me so I backed up real fast to the side and jumped out and jumped in his car to stop it wow my adrenaline is still going.

Not all heroes wear capes!

Prince Harry did something which made a young fan’s day when he met him at Dubbo airport while on the royal tour. 

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently on their 16-day tour, visiting Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga to take part in royal engagements and meet adoring fans.

One of their younger admirers took a shine to Prince Harry as the couple arrived in the drought-stricken town of Dubbo in northwestern New South Wales, where they were met with throngs of schoolchildren waving flags and holding welcome messages at Dubbo Airport.

Five-year-old Luke Vincent, who has Down syndrome, waited patiently for his turn to meet Harry and Meghan and was overjoyed when he was finally able to hug them – so much so that he just could barely tear himself away from the delighted parents-to-be.

He handed Meghan a bunch of flowers before turning his attention to Prince Harry.

Aside from being a member of the royal family, there was one thing about Harry which Luke especially loved – his beard.

The school’s headteacher, Anne Van Dartel, explained the five-year-old’s favourite person in the world is Santa Claus; so even though Harry is a bit younger and a bit more red-headed than the festive figure, his beard was enough to make Luke happy.

In an adorable act, Prince Harry bent down to allow Luke to stroke his facial hair, making the royal beam with delight at the joy he was able to bring the young boy.

Harry crouched down as Luke explored all of the hair on his head, while wife Meghan looked on lovingly.

Speaking about the lovely scene, the headteacher said:

He got a hug from Meghan and then Harry bent down to speak to him and Luke didn’t give him any choice. Luke’s favourite person in the world is Santa Claus, who has a beard. So he rubbed Harry’s beard.

It’s been a wonderful experience for these little country kids to meet people they’ve only ever seen on TV.

Heartwarming!

Retirement home hires naked butlersSWNS

Bosses at a retirement home hired naked naked butlers as a treat for elderly residents, because you’re never too old to appreciate some eye candy. 

89-year-old Joan Corp inspired the bosses to hire the hilariously nude staff, who served 23 guests a three-course meal while wearing only aprons to hide their manhood, but still adding a hint of formality to the occasion with bowties.

11 of the guests were residents at Milton Lodge, while I guess the other 12 were just people who came to enjoy the show.

Claire Martin, activities co-ordinator at Milton Lodge, explained how the situation came about:

Whenever you ask Joan what she wants that day she always says ‘a man’. So we weren’t surprised when she wanted it to be her wish.

We had a chat here and everyone was really keen to support it. We had a look online and found a company called Hunks in Trunks.

It sounds like a Baywatch spin off, but Joan and the other residents were certainly over the moon with having their butlers bare all. One of the residents even tried to steal one of the butlers’ aprons.

Claire continued:

When they turned up we had to let them know what we wanted them to do.

They had a three-course meal with a roast dinner. The ladies’ daughters and granddaughters came.

We asked them to do some harmless flirting, it doesn’t matter how old you are, so why not?

The ladies were really excited, they had all been giggling and they dressed up.

One of the residents in attendance, 99-year-old Doll Jenkins, couldn’t get enough of the men and has requested they return for her 100th birthday celebration.

Because what better way to celebrate having lived a century by having your dinner brought to you by some naked butlers?

82-year-old Gladas Smith, who also enjoyed the show, said:

It made quite a change and the boys done well. It was a good evening.

I like how she had to clarify having naked butlers serve the food made ‘quite a change’ – I’m pretty confident that’s not the usual retirement home dinner routine.

The butlers delivered more than just food, and made sure the residents were entirely relaxed by giving them all massages.

Claire continued:

They all had a massage, the butlers went around asking the ladies if they wanted a massage and they all said yes.

After it had all finished, Doll told the staff she wanted them back for her 100th birthday, so we are going to have them back.

They didn’t stop laughing the whole night, they absolutely loved it.

I’m sure it was a sight to behold!

Hilarious.

Meghan Markle has paid tribute to Princess Diana on the first official day of her overseas royal tour, which she is attending with her husband Prince Harry.

The Duchess of Sussex has been in the headlines everywhere you turn recently – from her marriage to Prince Harry earlier in the year to the announcement of her pregnancy yesterday (October 15).

And, let’s be honest, those aren’t going to stop anytime soon so you may as well get up to date on her recent escapades.

The royal couple arrived in Sydney yesterday for the first day of their overseas tour – which will also see them visiting New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga over 16 days.

Eager fans of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were waiting for them as they arrived, but they may have been too blown away by their presence (or staring at Meghan’s bump) to notice Meghan’s touching tribute to her mother-in-law.

The newly-pregnant royal was wearing a stunning pair of butterfly earrings, which at first glance may just seem like a fashion statement.

However, as the Daily Mail spotted, the exact same earrings were first worn by Princess Diana herself on her 1986 royal tour to Canada.

And this wasn’t the only piece of jewellery that drew attention to Meghan, as she continued to pay tribute to her mother-in-law in the loveliest way.

Meghan paired the earrings with a simple gold bracelet containing blue stones, which may not have caught people’s eye at a first glance.

However, the bracelet is also thought to have belonged to Princess Diana, who was pictured wearing it on several occasions.

This isn’t the first time the couple have paid tribute to Harry’s mother in such a way. When they announced their engagement in November 2017, Prince Harry made sure to pay tribute with the ring.

According to reports, the prince designed the engagement ring and made sure it featured a large diamond from Botswana and two smaller diamonds which were taken from Diana’s ‘personal collection’.

The engagement ring was made by Cleave and Company, Court Jewellers and Medallists to Her Majesty The Queen.

Prince Harry spoke with reporter Mishal Husain for the BBC after the couple’s engagement, alluding to how well Meghan would have got on with his late mother:

Oh they’d be thick as thieves, without question.

I think she would be over the moon, jumping up and down, you know so excited for me, but then, as I said, would have probably been best friends – best friends with Meghan.

The prince also went on to say how he wanted to include Diana’s diamonds in the engagement ring ‘to make sure she’s with us on this crazy journey together’.

And their journey is only getting more exciting! Meghan and Harry announced their pregnancy to the public yesterday (October 15), via a statement by Kensington Palace.
