1. A 30-year-old woman in Virginia broke a world record by donating 6 feet and 3 inches of her own hair to a charity that’s using it for wigs. Her dad came up with the idea 17 years ago. The last time she got a haircut, she was 13.
2. A 61-year-old guy in Michigan has been playing the same lotto numbers for 30 years. And they finally hit big for over $18 MILLION. He says he almost switched to new numbers a while back, but decided to stick with his normal ones, and it paid off. (His winning numbers were 3, 5, 10, 20, 28, and 31.)
3. A farmer in Australia came up with a unique way to pay tribute to his aunt, who lost her battle to cancer. He got all of his sheep to line up in the shape of a heart, and filmed it with a drone. He did it by spreading grain out in a field.
4. We’ve seen a lot of tragic news come out of Afghanistan in the last week. But here’s one piece of good news: A pregnant Afghan woman was evacuated on a U.S. military plane on Saturday . . . and then GAVE BIRTH on the plane.
Her blood pressure dropped. So the pilot descended to a lower altitude, which helped save the mom’s life. She decided to name her daughter “Reach,” because the military call sign of the plane that saved her was “Reach 828.”
