Martin loves his new live at Coney Island's 60th precinct where he spends his days hunting mice, eating turkey sandwich scraps and lounging around!

Paramedic Sister Saves Her Brother's Life
27-year-old Samantha James was on her way home when she came across a van that was in an accident on the side of the road.
She was shocked to see that the driver of the van was her younger brother, Luke – and lucky for him, Samantha is an ambulance driver and paramedic.
Samantha was able to grab her first aid kit from the trunk of her car and save her brother’s life – as well as save his leg, which was severely injured.
Luke was air-lifted to a nearby hospital, where surgeons operated on his leg and got him back up and walking.
Luke explained that without Samantha’s quick action and expertise, he would most likely have to use a wheelchair for the rest of his life, but instead, he’s able to get around on his own and play with his 18-month-old daughter.
