Thanks to the collective power of her fellow commuters, 16-year-old Maja Dabkowska escaped major harm Tuesday morning after she was pinned between a train car and the boarding platform on her way to school.

Video of the incident in Dublin, Ireland, shows Dabkowska sandwiched between the front of the train and the sidewalk as bystanders and passengers rush to help. (Warning: Video may be disturbing to some viewers.)

The clip shows dozens of strangers unite to push on the side of the train. They eventually lift it just far enough to free the teenager who'd been trapped for about five minutes.

"No words to describe how thankful I am to all the people that picked the [train] up in order

If you want to manage your emotions you need to focus as much on what you won’t do as what you will do. TalentSmart, an emotional intelligence training company, has tested more than a million people and found that the upper echelons of top performance are filled with people who are high in emotional intelligence (90% of top performers, to be exact). So, I went back to the data to uncover the kinds of things that emotionally intelligent people are careful to avoid in order to keep themselves calm, content, and in control. They consciously avoid these behaviors because they are tempting and easy to fall into if one isn’t careful.

Here are nine key behaviors that successful people try to av

Our hats are off to Amy Purdy for proudly showing off her prosthetics on the red carpet.

The 2014 Team USA Paralympic bronze medalist proudly paired a minidress with her prosthetic legs Thursday night at the OK! TV Awards Party in Los Angeles, an inspiring choice her fans can't stop calling "beautiful" on social media.

Purdy, 34, a 34-year-old pro snowboarder who also appeared on season 18 of "Dancing With the Stars," lost both of her legs at the age of 19 following a battle with bacterial meningitis.

Doctors gave Purdy a "less than 2 percent chance" of surviving the infection, which put her in a coma for nearly three weeks and also took her spleen, the hearing in her left ear and h

The last eight years of Fatcat the bulldog's life have been hard. In 2006, she was reportedly snatched from outside her owner's home and since then, she's lived a life of neglect and abuse, apparently at the hands of people who had used her as a "breeding machine."

But Fatcat's story recently took a wonderful, fortuitous turn -- and today, against all the odds, she's on the road to recovery and back home with her beloved owner of so long ago.

LaShena Harris says she still remembers the day she lost Fatcat. She told Today.com that she had left the pooch outside her house in Memphis for just a few minutes as she ran in to get the dog's new collar. When she emerged, however, Harris says s

Emily Nunez and her sister have led military lives since birth.

Inspired by her father and uncle, Emily became a U.S. Army 1st Lieutenant in Fort Carson, Colorado. Another of her passions is the new company she co-founded with her sister Becky.

While attending a social entrepreneurship event as a senior in college, Emily realized that there were tons of surplus military gear being routinely thrown away that could be recycled into something reusable. She came up with the idea of turning tents, sleeping bags and parachutes into messenger bags.

The two Nunez sisters launched a Kickstarter campaign that reached its goal of $20,000 in two hours. Eventually they raising $312,000 for the n

A grieving Belgian grandfather is a bit more cheerful now that he has been living with a new puppy given to him by his grandson and family. But, tears and sobs erupted when he was first surprised with the pup earlier this month.

“After a marriage of 63 years together, grandma past away on July 26th after a short, but intense disease,” writes Davy Vanhaesendonck on YouTube after uploading the video August 5.

“Grandpa also lost his dog – all within 4 months. To give him energy and the courage to continue his life, we gave him a present.”

Lexi was found tied up to a Brooklyn fence, bleeding from her eye and her nose and a massive tumor in her head.

Jackie O'Sullivan Rescue believes that Lexi's previous family may have been overwhelmed by medical bills.

"They probably tied her to that fence in the hopes that somebody would help her," she says.

Somebody did. In late March, Lexi was pulled from the New York City animal shelter by Second Chance, a New York-based pit bull rescue group that specializes in dogs who have been abused or neglected, or have serious medical needs. She was brought straight to the emergency veterinarian, who removed the dog's bum eye and as much of the tumor as could be gotten.

Then Lexi underw

TULSA, Okla. - On Monday, an Oklahoma police officer was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of his daughter's boyfriend earlier this month.

54-year-old Shannon Kepler was charged in the August 5 death of 19-year-old Jeremey Lake. Kepler, a 24-year-veteran of the Tulsa police force, also was charged with one count of shooting with intent to kill because prosecutors say he shot at his 18-year-old daughter during the alleged confrontation in which Lake was killed.

Kepler's wife and fellow officer, 48-year-old Gina Kepler, was not charged Monday because prosecutors said there wasn't evidence to support it. She'd been arrested along with her husband on a co

A sheriff's deputy in Virginia mistakenly shot his 16-year-old daughter early Tuesday morning after she snuck out and set off the home's alarm when she entered the garage, The Washington Post reported.

Easton McDonald, a sergeant who worked at the Loudoun County Sheriff’s office for 13 years, reportedly thought someone broke into his garage while his family was asleep. Authorities said by the time McDonald reached the basement, the dark figure walked towards him.

ADVERTISEMENT "At that particular point, he discharges his firearm and strikes the person in the torso area," Capt. Donnie Lang, from the Frederick sheriff's office, told the paper. He heard her voice and recognized it was

This surprising snapshot is rather incredible. Jason Roth, from Miami, Florida, and Jessica Roth, from Lakeland, Florida, both 35, met for the first time at a club near their alma mater, Florida State University, then soon fell in love. However, both had assumed that the club was the place where they have first seen one another. They were shocked when they discovered that, though they're from different towns, they had a picture taken together from 17 years before they "met."

The incredible discovery occurred about a year and a half after the pair started dating. They had previously become aware that they happened to have attended the same preschool during a brief period when Jason lived i
