A suspected car bomb and suicide bomber struck outside a major soccer stadium in Turkey Saturday — killing 29 people and wounding 166 others, officials said.
Witnesses reported twin blasts and gunfire outside Istanbul’s Vodafone Arena in what appeared to be a coordinated attack targeting riot police, officials said.
The dead included 27 officers and two civilians, officials said. Ten people were arrested in connection with the attacks, Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said. Source
An El Paso Police officer was hit by a drunk driver as the officer was conducting a field sobriety test on a driver from a previous collision.
Without regard for his own safety, the officer grabbed the man performing the sobriety test and pushed him out of harms way before being struck by the police vehicle. The officer was thrown violently into the air after being struck by the car. Miraculously, the officer sustained only minor injuries and was released from the hospital the same morning. The man performing the sobriety test was uninjured. Both drivers were subsequently charged with DWI and booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility.
The hospital did the sweetest thing for us and allowed us to bring my brother's dog in to "say goodbye" so she'd know why her human never came home. If you knew my brother, he really loved his sweet dog. (So many people have asked – He thought he had a migraine, but it was a ventricular brain hemorrhage. They think it was brought on by high blood pressure, and there's speculation that his frequent consumption of energy drinks may have contributed. THANK YOU to everybody for the outpouring of support, but I won't be responding anymore. We are sincerely touched and humbled by others' stories, their sharing in our sadness and the kindness of so many people. Don't worry about the dog! We're keeping her!!! She's part of the family.)

The 33-year-old suffered a ventricular brain hemorrhage and laid in a coma that he would never awake from.
On November 30th, Ryan’s friends and family gathered in his hospital room to say their final goodbyes, including his beloved pet, Mollie.
Mollie’s family wanted the pup to understand why her dad wasn’t coming home. The hospital staff was kind enough to allow the dog to come visit him one last time. Source
