Caught on camera: fisherman helps stingray give birth
A fisherman turned midwife after he helped deliver a pregnant stingray’s pups seconds after catching it. Calvin Conger, 18, was about to use the ray as shark bait when he noticed another stinger sticking out of it. His father, Terry Conger, instinctively pushed down on it, and they all watched on as a baby stingray popped out. Calvin’s mother, Valerie Conger, caught the incredible moment on camera, while his girlfriend, Hannah Harris, cooed in the background. Calvin was out fishing with his family in Port Charlotte, Florida when the incredible event occurred. All three stingrays were released into the water after the amazing ordeal that lasted only a few minutes.

One-Man Band Performs 'When The Saints Go Marching In'
Connor Going wanted to form a quartet but couldn’t find the necessary talent in Glasgow. So he turned to the only singer he knew: himself. Using a combination of technology and great timing, Going simultaneously performs all four roles of a quartet, Tenor I, Tenor II, Baritone and Bass. The result is a quartet made up of just one person singing the classic ‘When The Saints Go Marching In’. Credit: Connor Going.
