Kelly Rose’s Good News For People Who Love Bad News

An Indiana State Trooper who saved a man’s life has made another daring rescue — less than one week after the first.  Last Tuesday, WISH TV reported that Sgt. Luke Nathalang was responsible for saving a driver who suffered a massive heart attack.  “They said that I died and they said you don’t get any more massive than that,” Ben Lindley, 48, told WTHR. Nathalang discovered Lindley, whose van had side-swiped a semi truck, on the shoulder of Interstate 65.  Lindley was slumped over and unresponsive, so Nathalang shook him, checked his vitals and performed CPR several times until paramedics took over, WTHR reported. Cardiologists later said that Nathalang’s actions saved Lindley’s life.  On Monday evening, the trooper had just finished an interview about his first rescue — cameras were still rolling, said the Dubois County Free Press — when he was flagged down. A woman said her mother had become unresponsive.  According to the Free Press, Nathalang rushed over and noticed that the woman’s oxygen tank wasn’t functioning. He fixed one of the tank’s valves, allowing the woman to recover.  Nathlang told WTHR, “I always said when I started this career 28 years ago, that … if I could just save one life … I’ll be doing my job.”

Krispy Kreme has made one couple’s special day even sweeter.

On Sunday, 25-year-old David Lewis of Centennial, Colo., proposed to his girlfriend of three and a half years, Elly Steinmetz, 24. The pair started dating in 2009. One memorable day together, they ate Krispy Kreme donuts at a scenic overlook near Denver, Steinmetz told The Huffington Post.

The proposal took place at the same spot, so when Steinmetz said “yes,” Krispy Kreme seemed like a fitting place to celebrate. The couple asked an employee to take a photo and ordered five donuts. But workers behind the counter surprised them with more — way more.

“Krispy Kreme gave us a THOUSAND doughnuts for getting engaged and coming here!” Steinmetz wrote on Facebook Sunday.

On Monday, Steinmetz told The Huffington Post that she doesn’t know exactly how many donuts they received, but it was more than she’s ever seen at one time.

“They came with just bags and bags. And these boxes and boxes of donuts,” Steinmetz said.

At the time, employees were cleaning up for the night, she said. Still, they stopped to personally offer their congratulations.

“It was really cool to see how happy they were for us,” she said.

The couple posed for a few more photos and stopped by Steinmetz’s parents’ home in Littleton, where they ate what they could, drank champagne and brainstormed ways to get rid of the remaining donuts. Steinmetz joked that her father ate an entire box.

The others would go to coworkers, friends and lucky neighbors.

“I was going up and down my street giving donuts away,” Steinmetz said.
