Holocaust Hero Who Saved Children, Nicholas Winton, Dies at 106


Nicholas Wenton was a young clerk at the London Stock Exchange during World War II when he almost single-handedly saved more than 650 Jewish children from the Holocaust. "Britian's Schindler", as he was called, died Wednesday at the age of 106 in a hospital west of London, his family said. Wenton would arrange trains to carry children from Nazi-occupied Prague to Britain, battling bureaucracy at both ends and saving them from almost certain death. British Prime Minister David Cameron said "the world has lost a great man." Jonathan Sacks, Britain's former chief rabbi, said Winton "was a giant of moral courage and determination, and he will be mourned by Jewish people around the world." In Israel, President Reuven Rivlin said Winton will be remembered as a hero from "those darkest of times." Get More at NBC News

Shark Attacks Man Off North Carolina's Outer Banks


A shark attacked a man swimming off the North Carolina beach on Wednesday, biting the 68-year-old several times in waist-deep water around midday, authorities said. The swimmer, who was not identified, was in waist-deep water about 30 feet from the shore of Ocracoke Island when the shark struck, biting him on his left lower torso, his hip, his lower left leg and both hands, National Park Service spokeswoman Cyndy Holda said. "His wound on his leg looked like a 5-inch gash," said North Carolina resident Lynette Holman, who was vacationing on Ocracoke with her husband. "The news spread really quickly, and everyone ran out of the water when they heard what happened." The encounter was the third attack along the North Carolina coastline since this weekend, Holda said, bringing the total number of encounters to at least six since June. Get More at NBC News
