Three 'good Samaritans' have crash-tackled a convicted child-sex offender as he attempted to snatch a 4-year-old boy off his pushbike in a Illinois park.
One of the best examples of the river's myriad functions is the Mississippi.
Springing in Minnesota and merging with the Gulf of Mexico at the southern tip of Louisiana, this is an all-American river.
What I really dug came at the end of my college experience.
Finally, a porthole to another world spontaneously opened: The Actual City Of St. With the advent of the City Museum and City Garden (and general re-building efforts), a diverse population has begun to creep into the downtown streets. Kids can swim and play in a series of fountains and pools, there is plenty of green space for running around, and it’s an oddly artsy-hip retreat.
The City Museum is a wonderland for grown-ups, teenagers, and kids. It is locally rumored to be the largest urban park in the country.
It is an epic five-story playground (formerly a shoe factory) made out of recycled junk. Regardless of its rank, it lays claim to a jaw-dropping Art Museum, History Museum, Science Center, and Zoo. As a college student (as well as for many others of all kinds/ages), it was a constant place of wonder. Swarming with Washington University students, The Loop holds roughly six blocks of varied (and sometimes touristy) attractions.
Buildings were abandoned, I was told it was unsafe, and I didn’t know anyone who actually lived there. I sung the angsty-teen refrain of “I have to get out of this town.” But I didn’t do that.
I went to college roughly four miles from my childhood home and stayed in a dormitory roughly two fire hydrants away from my elementary school.
Witnesses saw a man approach the boy and pull him off his bicycle before hefting him over his shoulder and attempting to run off. Cat and Mikayla's father gave chase and confronted the man as two painters who were driving by at the time responded to shouts for help.
