As American Pharoah came out of the far turn and squared his shoulders to let his rider Victor Espinoza stare down the long withering stretch of Belmont Park, a sense of inevitability surged through this mammoth old grandstand. The fans in a capacity crowd strained on the tips of their toes and let out a roar from deep in their souls. It was going to end, finally — this 37-year search for a great racehorse.

No, a battered old sport was looking for an immortal thoroughbred, one worthy to stand alongside Sir Barton and Assault, War Admiral and Whirlaway, Count Fleet and Citation, a horse able to earn the title of a Triple Crown champion.

The Triple Crown trophy, which was commissioned in

When the plane crash occurs, there are usually no survivors, no matter how big or small the plane is. However, this time, earlier this year, it was different.

When the small plane crashed to the ground in the US state of Kentucky, a girl named Sailor Gutzler survived. This brave little child walked barefoot for more than 1.6 km (almost a mile), and she knocked on the Larry Wilkins door. In the crash, she lost both of her parents, sister, and older cousin, and she walked away from the scene, searching for help.

The McComb family is not giving up hope.

Laura and Jonathan McComb and their two children were at a cabin in Wimberley, Texas, on Saturday night when the skies opened, dumping record-breaking rains. Water soon swept the house downstream. Jonathan McComb was found, but the whereabouts of his wife and children remain a mystery.

"We never lose hope," said his father, Joe McComb. "But I think reality is setting in that there is probably a good chance that it might not be the outcome we're hoping for. But you never give up hope."

He said he suspects a loose tree fell and knocked his family's cabin off its pilings, eventually causing it to be swept downriver.

"I don't know how many m

(CNN)Sometimes, life takes twists so fortuitous that they seem inevitably predetermined. That may be the case for Maya Gurung, a 10-year-old girl suffering in post-earthquake Nepal.

I met Maya in Kathmandu earlier this month and told her story on She lost her lower left leg in the April 25 quake and suddenly, her already hardscrabble life became that much harder. She was a poor girl living on unforgiving Himalayan terrain. Without a limb, her life took an ominous turn.

Maya and her father, Bhim Bahadur Gurung, had held high hopes that the doctors who treated her at a Kathmandu hospital would fit her for a prosthetic leg. But the hospital was overwhelmed after the earthquake. M

A high school senior was suspended with only 30 minutes left of her school year after wearing a dress that violated school dress code.

When Evette Reay, a senior at West Side High School in Dayton, Idaho, got dressed on Friday morning, she chose an outfit that made her feel good. “I read in Seventeen that I had to dress for how I felt,” she tells Yahoo Parenting. “If I dressed well I would feel better about myself, and I wanted to feel good on my last day.” Reay, 18, chose a short-sleeved green dress with a lace overlay and sandals.

The family of a girl mauled to death by a dog have described her as a "shining star in the sky" who will "never be forgotten".

4-year-old Lexi Branson died two years ago in a scene of pure horror after being bitten, no, butchered by her pet bulldog at home in Leicestershire, England.

Police said the bulldog, which is not a banned breed, died of stab wounds sustained during attempts to save Lexi.

I feel just horrible for Lexi, her life and all she could ever be, gone, but not so much for her parents. I read that the bulldog may have been frightened from fireworks. It makes little difference what prompted the attack. It happened. That's enough, enough that it could happen and who in

After having her dreams put on hold for almost eight decades, a former medical student has received the recognition she deserves.

At the age of 102, Ingeborg Rapoport successfully defended her doctoral thesis last Wednesday -- 77 years after she completed it. After a ceremony in Hamburg, Germany, in June, it's believed she will become the oldest person ever to receive a doctoral degree.

Rapoport completed her thesis, which focused on the disease diphtheria, at the University of Hamburg in 1938 -- during Adolf Hitler's dictatorship. But, she was denied the chance to properly defend it because her mother was Jewish, the Wall Street Journal reports.

“My medical existence was turned to

In her film, WILD, Reese Witherspoon plays Oregon resident Cheryl Strayed, a recently divorced woman who leaves behind her life in Minneapolis, Minnesota with plans of hiking more than a thousand miles along the Pacific Crest Trail as a way of self discovery and healing.

Despite not being an avid hiker, Strayed overpacks her backpack and begins her trek through the Mojave Desert in Southern California. During her hike, Strayed reflects on her life growing up in Minnesota and the death of her mother, Bobbi Grey (Laura Dern), which caused Strayed to begin a reckless life of sex and drugs, ultimately leading to her divorce. Meanwhile, Strayed's ex-husband, Paul, writes letters to her next lo
