The inspirational teen cancer patient who became an honorary Cover Girl, with the help of talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres, has died. She was 13.

The Florida teen who lost her hair to cancer treatments came to the comedian's attention after posting to YouTube a series of videos that offered practical and uplifting makeup advice.

Man Wrestles Shark Out of Ocean

You know the limerick. There once was a man from Nantucket ... who wrestled a shark with his bare hands.

In an act of sheer badassery, fisherman Elliot Sudal, 24, was photographed reeling in and then wrestling to the beach a 7-foot, 200-pound shark.

"It's just like this epic battle between you and this sea beast. You can't go back to a little fish after that. Everything else is bait," Sudal told ABC News, adding that he returned the fish back to the ocean unharmed.
