Lizzie Velasquez was once cruelly called the 'World's Ugliest Woman' but now she's starting an inspirational tour to spread a positive message against bullying. Lizzie is just four stone and has almost zero per cent body fat but her appearance is due to a genetic condition called Neonatal Progeroid Syndrome which causes premature ageing and decreased fat under the skin. In her talks, Lizzie tells the story of how she discovered a video of herself on You Tube at the age of 15 which had been cruelly labelled 'The Most Ugly Woman in the World'. Amazingly instead of causing her to hide away, it became the defining moment which helped Lizzie become a speaker to help other bullying victims. Now, she is setting off on a tour to give talks to teenagers and adults across America and reveals her next ambition is to set up an anti-bullying business. "I want to create an anti-bullying company something to help kids and adults and teenagers," she said.
Amazing CCTV footage captures the moment a pram rolls under a train - and the baby boy survives
THIS incredible CCTV footage shows the moment when a pram rolls under a train in Melbourne and the baby boys survives - just seven months after an almost identical incident. The 15-month-old boy is the latest accident survived without any serious injuries, thanks to the quick thinking of the driver. He stopped the train as quickly as possible, grabbing the pushchair from under the front of the train. Moments before, the pram was dragged along the tracks for several meters while the boy's grandmother, three year old brother and other members of the public looked on in horror. The grandmother of the boys told paramedics afterwards she only turned away for a second when the near tragedy occurred. She was also with the baby's three-year-old brother, who luckily was standing with her at the time.
