Second American worker infected with Ebola
An American doctor and another U.S. aid worker helping to combat an outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in Liberia have become infected with the disease.
The first American reported to have contracted the virus is Dr. Kent Brantly, 33, from the North Carolina-based charity Samaritan's Purse.
"Dr. Brantly is married with two children," a statement reads on the group's website. "Samaritan's Purse is committed to doing everything possible to help Dr. Brantly during this time of crisis. We ask everyone to please pray for him and his family."
A second U.S. citizen working in Liberia was also identified as having tested positive for the Ebola virus. Nancy Writebol is employed by SIM in Liberia and was helping the joint SIM/Samaritan's Purse team treating Ebola patients in Monrovia.
According to a statement from Samaritan's Purse, Writebol is married with two children. She was in stable and serious condition.
The highly contagious virus is one of the most deadly diseases in the world. Ebola has killed more than 670 people in several African countries since the outbreak began earlier this year.
There is no known cure for Ebola. Symptoms can begin with a fever and sore throat but then escalates to vomiting, diarrhea and internal and external bleeding.
Spunky 6-year-old shames bike thieves
Six-year-old Roxy is not afraid to give thieves in Portland, Oregon a piece of her mind.
After her dad's road bikes were stolen from the family's garage last month, KATU reports that Roxy couldn't stand to see her dad so sad and wrote a message to the thieves on a sign in her front yard.
"Shame on you bike thieves," she wrote. "Your mom would be so disappointed!"
About a half dozen custom road bikes were stolen, worth thousands of dollars. Roxy's dad, Rob Thompson, also filed a police report.
"At first, she offered to give me her life savings-- that was a heart melter--then this a couple days later she wants to let the world know it's not cool," Thompson told KATU.
Dog passes out from overwhelming joy
There is nothing like that special bond with your dog.
Rebecca Ehalt is originally from Pennsylvania and has been living in Europe for the last two years.
She came home to visit family last week and was also reunited with her pet schnauzer, Casey.
Casey is so excited to see her, she jumps on her and smothers her with kisses. Eventually, the happiness of her return becomes too much for Casey and the little dog passes out on the ground.
But don't worry - she's okay!
