  • Giant boulder nearly collides with Massachusetts church

    "The Lord just kinda said, 'That's enough,'" pastor says

    A massive runaway boulder that stopped within inches of a Massachusetts church has a pastor wondering if divine intervention may have played a part in saving the house of worship.

    "If it rolled another 12 inches, it would have gone right through the building. This boulder was probably 20 tons," Grace Ministries Pastor Rick LeClair told

    The boulder was accidentally jarred loose by an excavation company working in an adjacent lot. Footage of the incident plays like a slow-motion action movie. All that's missing is a guy dressed like Indiana Jones running for dear life.

    As the boulder rolls toward the church, someone behind the camera can be heard to deadpan, "That's not good."

    And indeed, it didn't look good. The boulder rolls, rolls, rolls until it finally loses momentum before it gets to the church.

    "We were standing across the street saying, 'Uh-oh. There it goes,'" LeClair told WCVB. "I was thinking the church was going to get wrecked, but I had this peace about me where it

  • The Boy Scouts from Troop 368 who helped rescue Curry (Scouting Magazine)

    In her role as NBC journalist, Ann Curry has reported from some of the world’s hot spots, including Afghanistan, Iraq and Darfur. But when she experienced an unexpected injury on a New Jersey hiking trail, Curry found herself assisted by the Boy Scouts of America.

    Writing in Scouting Magazine, Bryan Wendell says Scouts from Berkeley Heights encountered Curry on a trail in Harriman State Park in New York. Curry, 57, had broken her ankle.

    “We were hiking along, and we came to a trail intersection,” Scouter Rick Jurgens said, “and a lady was sitting on the ground with her one leg out. We didn’t think anything of it, but one of the guys asked if everything is OK. She said, ‘No, not really. I think I broke my ankle.’ She told us to keep going, but the guys refused.”

    Although Jurgens said he recognized Curry’s voice instantly, his scouts had no idea it was the famous TV journalist. Regardless, they went to work creating a splint for Curry.

    “We work on these requirements, and here’s an

  • It's every parent's ... dream?

    A Texas couple welcomed not one, not two, not three, but four (!) healthy babies on Monday. That's in addition to Anna and Joshua Hall's two daughters, ages 2 and 4. The foursome's big debut came on dad's 36th birthday, a fact that he says will make future birthdays hard to top, CBS-Dallas reports.

    The babies, three girls and a boy, were born prematurely and will have to stay in the neonatal intensive-care unit until they are deemed strong enough to go home with mom and dad.  Doctors think that may take about six weeks. Still, the newborns — Brooks, Elle, Sadie and Ivy — are breathing on their own and doing well.

    Though the babies were born earlier than the standard nine months, they did stay in the womb for an impressive 32 weeks, which is two and a half weeks longer than the average set of quadruplets, according to

    Their parents say they think they know what they're in for when the quads come home.
