Caught on Camera: A Little Girl's Tireless Attempt to Quench Her Thirst

ABC 22 / FOX 45 Dayton's News Source - Mon, 03/30/2015 - 23:11

TACONY, Philadelphia -- A four-year-old's thirst for a slushie is caught on camera!

The child went so far as to sneak out of the house at three in the morning to get one.

A suburban Philadelphia bus passenger noticed the little girl at the bus stop, soaked from the rain.

He told the driver and the child climbed aboard. That's when Annabelle told everyone all she wanted was a slushie.

Passengers comforted her as the driver called police. Her parents were stunned when police contacted them... but within an hour, she was back home safe and sound.

Annabelle: "Mom, can you take me to Wawa and get me a slushie?"  

Mom: "I will take you to Wawa and get you a slushie," Jaclyn responded. "But listen, promise me next time you'll wait for me, okay?" 

Annabelle: "Yeah, Okay."

And Annabelle's mom said her little girl is not going anywhere without her, again.

MCCALLA, Alabama --  An apology for two teens' disrespectful behavior is now leading to job offers and support for a Jefferson county family. Kyesha Smith Wood says her teen daughters ruined that family's movie outing Friday.

"She's the most gracious, kind, and forgiving woman and I am so humbled by that and I've been telling people the real hero of the story is... I've been getting a lot of attention... but it's her. She took it upon herself to correct my girls and one else around them did," said Kyesha Wood.

The local Sheriff's office in Alabama shared Kyesha's post online, and it's received more than 200,000 likes, 10,000 comments and nearly 47,000 shares!

Americans Not Saving Enough, According to Bankrate's Chief Financial Analyst

ABC 22 / FOX 45 Dayton's News Source - Mon, 03/30/2015 - 22:32

UNITED STATES -- Many of us could apparently be headed for financial disaster if we don't start saving.

A new survey showed roughly half of all Americans save 5-percent or less of their incomes. Nearly one of five people aren't saving at all.

Bankrate's chief financial analyst said people should try and save 15-percent of their income for retirement, emergency finds and other needs.

But, with so many people only working part-time, or not all... that's almost impossible.
