Top Viral Stories Of The Week - September 25th, 2015

From a nitrogen shot that ruined a teenager's stomach to a Costco fight over Nutella, 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. Officers dance with daughter of fallen deputy at her wedding

The daughter of a fallen sheriff's deputy got married over the weekend -- and to make up for her father's absence, four fellow officers stepped up to help make Kirsten Mundell's wedding special.

Pierce County Sheriff's Deputy Walter "Kent" Mundell, Jr. was killed in the line of duty back in 2009 during a domestic dispute call.

Nearly six years later, his daughter had a police escort down the aisle -- and on the dance floor for the customary father-daughter dance.

Angela Lyons captured the moments and shared the pictures and story on her Facebook page. The post has been shared almost 7,000 times in just four days.

2. U.K. bar fined for nitrogen shot that ruined teen's stomach

A U.K. bar has been fined over $150,000 for improperly serving a liquid nitrogen drink to a customer.

Gaby Scanlon was celebrating her 18th birthday at Oskar's Wine Bar in 2012 when she was given a cocktail containing liquid nitrogen. Scanlon says she wasn't given any instructions on how to handle the drink, so she drank it before the chemical had evaporated.

The gas punctured her stomach lining, and the teen had to spend three weeks in the hospital and have her stomach removed.

The bar pleaded guilty to endangering its customers and admitted it hadn't carried out a safety review before using liquid nitrogen in drinks.

3. 78-year-old man punched in the face over Nutella

The Nutella craze has officially gone too far. According to KTLA, a California Costco shopper was hoarding free samples of Nutella waffles when a 78-year-old man told the hoarder he should just take one sample.

Rather than complying, the 24-year-old man punched the 78-year-old in the face. The senior citizen was taken to the hospital and suffered a one-inch cut above his swollen left eye.

Derrick Gharabighi was charged with elder abuse and could spend the next decade in jail.

4. Mom's bold move after insult in cafe makes waves

A Michigan mom is getting positive attention after she took the high road while dealing with some nasty comments in a Tim Hortons coffee line.

While standing in line with her 22-month-old for coffee and doughnuts, Dianne Hoffmeyer overheard two middle-aged women behind her bashing the woman's appearance.

Hoffmeyer said that the women were insulting her in a hushed tone. They were saying things like "Oh look at her hair, it's nasty looking and the roots are coming through," as well as, "Oh she's a whale, oh the whale needs to eat."

Instead of insulting them back, the mother astonished everyone by buying the two women coffee.

Hoffmeyer then took to Facebook to share the awful incident, and her post quickly garnered over 200 thousand likes and thousands of messages showing support.

That's our roundup for the week. Check back next week for a new batch of stories you may have missed.
