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, shrieked 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.

Hot tub Cadillac: friends hope to set world record for fastest hot tub car
Phil Weicker and Duncan Forster have transformed their 1969 Cadillac Coupe DeVille into a fully functioning mobile hot tub, which bubbles as they drive. The pair from Los Angeles, U.S.A. plan to take their turbo-tub to Bonneville Speedway, Utah, in August to set the land speed record for the worlds fastest hot tub. The engineers transformed the vehicle, named The Carpool DeVille, based on a prototype created when they were engineering students at McMaster University, Canada. The team bought the car for $800 and improved its heating, suspension, controls and pool plumbing in a six-year restoration.

Second wedding for 9-year-old boy & his 61-year-old wife
A nine-year-old schoolboy has become one of the world’s youngest grooms for the second time – marrying his 62-year-old wife again. Looking a little taller in last year’s silvery tuxedo, baby faced Saneie Masilela clutched the hand of Helen Shabangu as they repeated their vows one year on. Last year the boy, from nearby Tshwane, tied the knot with bride Helen after claiming he had been told by his dead ancestors to wed. Shockingly his family took the message from the heavens seriously and hurriedly forked out £500 for the bride and a further £1,000 for the big day. The second marriage ceremony was this time held at the home of the blushing bride in Ximhungwe in Mpumalanga, South Africa, in front of around 100 guests. Wide-eyed residents looked on as the married mother-of-five shared a piece of cake, a toast and even a kiss with her young groom Sanele – and long-term husband Alfred Shabangu, 66.
