5 trending stories you may have missed this week
From a Honduras teenager being buried alive to a waitress receiving a 'harsh' receipt note, there was no shortage of attention-grabbing stories this week. In case you fell off the grid a bit, here are a few that made waves.
1. Honduras teenager dies after waking up in coffin To bury a loved one is a painful experience many go through, but to bury a loved one -- the same one -- twice? That's something no one should have to do.
A family in Honduras said they heard 16-year-old Neysi Perez screaming for help inside the coffin they had placed her in, thinking she was dead the day before.
The family used a sledgehammer to break through the concrete tomb before pulling Perez out of the coffin, and attempting to revive her, but were unsuccessful.The relatives say that the tips of Perez's fingers were left bruised, and that the viewing window on her coffin had been smashed.
2. Bears feel grass for first time
After spending 20 years working in a roadside zoo, four elderly bears have a new lease on life.
Thanks to PETA, the bears were released to a wild animal sanctuary, a 24-hour drive away in Colorado, where they'll happily live out the rest of their days. Now, they're free to roam.
3. Model calls out industry for body image expectations
A Swedish model with a body mass index of 17 -- making her underweight according to medical experts -- said she's too fat to model.
19-year-old Agnes Hedengård had a successful career in Sweden, and was even a runner up on "Sweden's Next Top Model." She said she stopped getting work because her body was deemed "too big."
The model took to social media to slam the fashion industry's body standards, including comments she has gotten on her hips being "too wide."
She posted to YouTube and Facebook taking a stand against the fashion industry.4. Missing woman spotted 21 years later
A woman missing since 1994 is believed to have been spotted.
57-year-old Renee LaManna suffers from memory loss and mental illness. The New Jersey woman went missing when she was 35.
It's believed she was spotted in Greenville, South Carolina, at a Taylor's Walmart. There's a huge effort on social media to spread awareness and help find her.5. Diner writes 'LOL' on receipt and leaves no tip
You know those stories that make happy headlines when a server is left an incredibly generous tip? This isn't one of those.
20-year-old Jess Jones is your typical college student just trying to pay for school.
On August 17, the Rutgers student was serving a party of eight on a busy night at D'Jais Bar & Grill. After the hundred-dollar tab was charged to a credit card, Jones noticed her customers left her no tip. Instead, the letters "LOL" were written on the tip line of the receipt, next to the words, "1 hour for food."
Jones of course, took to social media to vent she posted the receipt with a caption that read, in part:"I would have preferred a "$0" tip than a "LOL" tip, but as a waitress, bad tips and harsh notes are all part of the job. Even though they did wait an hour to eat, they remained satisfied with filled drinks and proper notice that the kitchen was a bit busier than normal."
