Man In China Amputates His Own Leg
In Boading, China, a 47-year-old man used a metal saw and knife to amputate his own leg. Zheng Yanliang was diagnosed with an arterial embolism in his left leg after he began suffering pain in the leg. He was told he would only have three months to live if he did not have the leg amputated. He was unable to afford the surgery at a hospital and a local doctor refused to carry out the procedure. Zheng was recently diagnosed with another arterial embolism in his other leg and made an appeal to the public for help. Dr. Zhang Qiang of Shanghai Wode Medical Center came forward and offered to amputate the second leg for free.
Man Leaves Bride At Gas Station
In Kirchheim, Germany, a man on his honeymoon trip, left his new bride at a gas station and drove about 125 miles before realizing she was not in the vehicle. Eileen Novak said she got out of their van to use the restroom at a gas station and her husband drove off without her.

Novak had no money or phone when left behind and was reunited with her husband with help from the Kirchheim police.
Man Saved By Pulling Bears Tongue
In New Brunswick, Canada, a man walking on his wooded property near Grand Falls, was able to fend off a bear attack by grabbing its tongue. Gilles Cyr said the black bear burst out of the woods and attacked him. “When I opened my eyes it was on top of me, with the friggin’ noise, it’s crazy the way it growls.” Cyr said, “His mouth was wide open right in front of my face so the last thing I remember I had his tongue in my hand and I didn’t want to let go because he was trying to fight me off. He was hitting me with his claws, so I said, ‘If you’re going to hurt me, I’m going to hurt you too.’ So he was biting his tongue at the same time.” Cyr said he thought he was dead. “That’s the first thing you think when you open your eyes and see that friggin’ mouth full of teeth and a tongue in there,” he said. “It’s like an extreme sport.” Cyr was able to escape behind a tree with only superficial claw wounds to his belly and a bite on his knee.
Vladimir Putin Fights Zombies
In Brussels, a Belgian game programmer will release a game this year that pits Russian President, Vladimir Putin against a horde of zombies. Michele Rocco Smeets said his latest project titled, “You Don’t Mess With Putin,” has Putin and a sidekick from the U.S., a fictional alcoholic man who goes by the name of Mike, against zombies that attack at a news conference. Putin’s dialogue in the game is based on actual statements from the official. “Putin has a tough guy image and he’s not afraid to get his hands dirty,” Smeets said. “He hunts, he rides, he shoots. A leader should be strong and in my opinion, Putin is the only leader that really fulfills this image.”
