stuck in a tree. well, not anymore. and one happy dog who surprised his soldier at his homecoming. >> he's just dancing around the room. this is -- this is -- this is -- >> yeah. christiana is going to kick our show off with the first video and the story behind it. >> this video is just chilling, because of what these two guys were up to. in this video, you see two men, one identified as hymed matta, holding a block of wood and barricading the doors of a nightclub in houston because he's mad. earlier that night, he and his friend were thrown out of this nightclub and he didn't like it. so he left, but came back, and you see he used a block of wood to look the door and prevent it from being opened. and then he and his friend went to the back of the nightclub and doused the back of the nightclub
with gasoline and then lit it on fire. >> what? >> wow. oh, my goodness. >> all of this while the nightclub still has patrons inside. >> geez. >> look at this right here. look at how as his buddy is pouring the gasoline around the building, before his buddy comes back, he lights the gasoline on fire. putting his buddy in danger too. fortunately, everyone inside the nightclub was able to get out of a third door that was not locked. >> there is zero regard for human life in that. i mean, this guy was mad at people who had nothing to do with him getting thrown out of a club. >> what is going on that you think this is a good idea? >> they're thugs. >> fortunately, everyone was able to get out, and there were no reported injuries. authorities are still looking formata, but he has been charged with felony arson, and a warrant is out for his arrest. >> surprised he's not charged with attempted murder. >> his friend has only been
identified as pepe, and authorities are also looking for him. this next one will make you guys sick. look what was caught on camera in the middle of the day at franklin high school near boston, massachusetts. watch this. >> ooh. >> a complete sucker punch. you see this one kid in the white shirt waiting against the wall. you see a guy in a black shirt come by. the kid in the white shirt just hauls off and sucker punches this kid. he hits the ground. the kid in the white eventually tells the person filming to cut the camera and stop recording as he runs off. what a coward. this video was circulating on twitter, passed around on the internet. fox 25 of boston obtained a copy of this video. that's where we're seeing it. the superintendent called this cowardly and disturbing to see. but the police are calling it much more than that. they're saying that both the attacker and the person filming this could face some criminal charges.
they're pursuing both individuals. they're saying this whole thing was premeditated. were they targeting that single kid or did he just happen to be walking down the hallway at the time? >> police believe the attacker was targeting that kid because he was talking trash about him. >> cell phones have really changed up bullying and everything else, because everybody wants to record it. but they always seem to forget they get in trouble when -- i can't wrap my brain around this kind of behavior. >> the victim in this video was taken to the hospital but fortunately, he will be okay. take a look at this 7-month-old kitten. this is corky. if you notice corky's legs are a little different. he suffers from a rare congenital disease, which means that his legs are actually backwards. >> oh, my goodness. >> corky was rescued by one of the co founders of a shelter called cat's cradle that focuses on rescuing cats.
and it gets better, because a surgeon came to the rescue with groundbreaking surgery, really, to help fix this cat's legs. let me show you a video post surgery of corky. look at the little guy! >> he's got green socks. >> so cute. >> corky has actually been in the hospital since his april 5th surgery. there was a complication, because of this surgery, and unfortunately, one of corky's legs ended up having to be amputated. >> oh, man. >> we wanted to check in and see how corky is doing so "right this minute" via skype, we have gail adams one of the co founders, and one of the ladies who rescued corky. tell us what happened with this back leg. >> a few days after his original surgery on april 5th, he had some swelling. and it ended up causing some nerve damage. and the tissue actually started to become necrotic. >> he'll still be able to walk, though, with just three legs, right? >> he's walking better with
three legs than he ever did with four. >> how much did a surgery like this e cost, and aryouh donatio? >> we are doing it just through donations. and i don't know. how much it's going to cost. we haven't gotten the bill, and to tell the truth, we just -- we didn't want to ask, because it didn't matter. people are telling us they're in tears watching his videos. so for just a few minutes, when people see that something good is being done for an animal, it makes us forget about the rest that's going on in the world, maybe not so good. >> is there hope that corky will be adopted, or will you guys hang on to corky? >> what we would hope to do is make him a therapy pet and take him up to the hospitals and visit children who maybe are recovering from orthopedic surgeries or maybe have some type of disability, that they're struggling with and let them know that corky has a tough time too. and if he can do it, they can do it. it russia. ♪ the resort town of sochi, the
