Top Viral Stories Of The Week - October 9th, 2015

From a mother seeing her late grandfather kissing her unborn baby to a 'Jeopardy!' contestant getting attention for his stare down, 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. Mother sees dead grandfather kissing unborn baby In 4D ultrasound

One ultrasound proved it's possible to be creepy and heartwarming.

21-year-old Jade Hornsby, a first time mother-to-be, didn't just get a glimpse of her unborn baby when she went in for her first ultrasound -- the profile of her late grandfather, Jack Hornsby, showed up in the images, as well.

According to Jade, her grandpa Jack died in 2007, but she swears grandpa appears to be kissing her baby in the photos.

While the claim may seem like a bit of a stretch, Jade fully believes that the image in her 4D scan is of her late grandfather. It was taken in 2013 when Jade was 30 weeks pregnant a few months later she gave birth Lacey-Mae.

2. ER nurse breaks down upon realizing hit-and-run patient is her brother

Hearts broke all across the country when this story went viral.

California nurse, Jennifer Medina, was helping tend to a hit-and-run victim who had been brought to the ER where she works.

While doctors worked to revive the unresponsive man, Medina and a fellow nurse went through his belongings for identification.

Medina recalled the moment she realized the victim was her 23-year-old brother, Cesar.

Cesar died at the hospital.

The teen that hit him was arrested for the crime and booked on charges of felony hit-and-run.

3. Dunkin' Donuts apologizes after turning away police officer

Dunkin' Donuts is in hot water after two bad run-ins with police.

The first, according to CNN, was in Providence, Rhode Island, where the local police union said an officer received a cup labeled "#blacklivesmatter."

A few days later at a Dunkin' Donuts in Connecticut, an employee reportedly told an officer, "We don't serve cops here."

The store manager and the employee followed the officer out and apologized, but the cop understandably lost his appetite.

Despite both franchise owners apologizing and the national chain saying it'll work with employees to reinforce the obligation to serve all of guests with dignity and respect, many are threatening to boycott.

4. 'Jeopardy!' contestant being noticed for awkward introduction

America's favorite game show has a new star -- and he isn't just famous for his unmatchable intelligence and rapid response.

The Internet is going wild for Matt Jackson and his stare down during his introductions.

The 23-year-old paralegal from Washington D.C has won 10 games and almost $300,000.

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