Nurse saves man from train tracks

An unnamed nurse's quick thinking has saved a man's life in Brisbane, Australia.  Queensland Rail video footage captured the entire scene. 

The video shows the 56 year old man falling onto the tracks.  Queensland Rail employee Jill Lyten ran to the phone to stop the trains while the mystery nurse jumped on the tracks and saved the man.  Talk about a superhero!

Queensland rail released the footage in order to showcase the emergency buttons on the platforms and promote safety.

 



And that's what's good,

Rare solar eclipse visible in Australia

In just a couple hours, individuals in Northern Australia will witness a rare solar eclipse.  The next solar eclipse will occur in 2015.  A solar eclipse occurs when the moon moves between the Earth and the Sun.  This causes a brief moment of darkness. 

Scientists are observing animals on land and under water to see how they will react to the brief "unexpected" darkness.  "This is a relatively short eclipse but we will still find even in a short space birds will fall asleep," said Dick Cijffers, an eclipse tourism operator.


The eclipse will occur at approximately 3:35 PM EST which equates to first thing in the morning in Australia.  More than 50,000 spectators are expected to watch the event in Queensland, Australia.  You can watch all of the live footage here:

Nature has some beautiful surprises!  If you are in Australia, send us your pictures of the eclipse: info[at,]goodworldnews.org

Remember, don't look directly at the eclipse as it could damage your eyes.  Be safe and enjoy natures wonders :)

Singer Kylie Minogue is a Charity Diva

Many of you know the Australian superstar because of her hit songs including "Locomotion" and "Can't get you out of my head".  Or maybe you know her because she is just awesome.  Kylie Minogue may as well be placed in the dictionary next to charity.  She has done so much to raise awareness for breast cancer, AIDS research through AmFAR, Children in Need, and more.

Kylie is a breast cancer survivor herself.  In 2005 she was diagnosed with breast cancer, but she has received successful treatment to rid herself of the disease that affects so many.  Her charitable donations began well before her diagnosis.  After she publicly announced her diagnosis, cancer screenings in the UK went up a third.  "I know a lot of women went for screenings after my announcement," Kylie says, "and a lot of people came up to me and said I saved them. Of course I didn't - but it made them go and get checked."

In 2010, she joined forces with Robbie Williams, Elton John, and the Scissor Sisters to have a breast cancer charity concert.  She has truly become an inspiration and has helped many through difficult times.  There are definitely good people in the world and Kylie Minogue is one of them!

Thank you Kylie!  The Good World News team is jamming out to your music :)
