What’s Brewing: human chain rescue, trash talk, and hippo’s return

(WTNH)-Dozens of total strangers came together to save a group of people from drowning over the weekend in Florida. The swimmers were getting pulled out by a rip current. Police on scene called for a rescue boat but before it arrived check this out about 80 people formed a human chain. One by one each of them braved the choppy waters to reach the stranded swimmers. Eventually, all of the swimmers got back on dry land.

Their super fight isn’t for another month but boxing champ Floyd Mayweather and M-M-A fighter Conor McGregor are already throwing some punches. The two did a little trash talking last night.
