• Loganair(ORKNEY, Scotland) -- One beloved teddy bear got left behind by his best friend and had to travel a great distance to be reunited with his owner.Donna, who asked ABC News not to use her last name, was traveling on Monday with her 4-year-old daughter Summer back to their hometown of Orkney, Scotland, from Edinburgh Airport in the country's capital.The mother said the two didn't realize "Teddy," as he is lovingly known, was left behind until they sat down on the plane."I panicked and called the cabin crew guy over, who said he'd [likely] be at security," she added, noting that while going through airport security it was "really crazy.""It must've fallen off of something," Donna said.Donna said they didn't have time to go back to security to look for Teddy. Instead, when she touched down in Orkney, she tried recovering Teddy, whom Summer has had as a best friend since she was born."As soon as I landed, I was frantically calling everywhere trying to get through to anyone," Donna recalled. "But I wasn't getting anywhere with the airport."So the mother took to Facebook, posting a plea in a local group for help with locating Teddy. That's where Loganair cabin crew member Kirsty Walter heard about the incident, offering to help.Walter was able to locate Teddy and personally flew him back Wednesday to Orkney herself to reunite him with Summer."Whenever our team was made aware of the 'grizzly' situation, we knew there could be pandemonium if we didn’t help," Loganair's Commercial Director Kay Ryan told ABC News in a statement. "Our cabin crew team quickly tracked down the bear and arranged for him to be on the next service up to Orkney. It was wonderful to see Teddy back in the company of Summer and we’re pleased to have played a role. Loganair prides itself on bringing everyone, including Teddy, home for Christmas."Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

  • iStock/Thinkstock(BIR AL-ABED, Egypt)-- Bodies lined the walls at a mosque in northern Sinai in Egypt after an attack killed hundreds during Friday prayers.An eyewitness described the perpetrators as having stationed themselves at the mosque's three exits and deliberately attacking those who tried to escape the building, as well as passing vehicles, after first shooting some who were "kneeling in prayer." At least 235 people were killed and 130 more injured, according to Egyptian state news agency MENA."The sight was horrific," the witness, Ibrahim Shetewy, told ABC News in Arabic, adding, "We carried whoever we found alive and took them in pickups and private cars until more ambulances could come and help."Shetewy described the mosque in question as one frequented by travelers on their way in and out of the area. He said the building is "huge" and was lined with bodies and a large quantity of shell casings following the attack."Most of the people from the mosque's village are probably all dead, we saw 2-, 3- and 4--year olds dead. I saw a little boy with a hole ... in his head ... a horrible, horrible sight," Shetewy said. "... The mosque is huge and it was all full of dead bodies.""There was a woman waiting outside for her husband and young child to finish praying; she came inside and found them dead next to each other."He added that people are lined up at a local hospital to donate blood.Photographs taken after the attack each show more than a dozen bloodstained bodies lined up on the ground of a building as those who appear uninjured tend to them.
