LONDON, ENGLAND - FEBRUARY 01: Gardener Catherine Cocks pushes a wheelbarrow full of miniature daffodils for planting during spring preparations at English Heritage property Audley End House on February 1, 2016 in London, United Kingdom. The early 17th century country house outside Saffron Walden, Essex, is today only roughly a third the size of the mansion created in 1605-14 by Thomas Howard, 1st Earl of Suffolk, and contains Robert Adam and Jacobean interiors. English Heritage staff across the country have been spring cleaning their historic sites, from castles to houses and even a cold war bunker, to prepare for their seven-day opening in time for the Easter Holiday.

Credit should be given to a group of Canadian teens who got hammered during a sleepover on Saturday. While they may be too young to drink, at least they were responsible enough to realize they were far too drunk to drive. So when one of them passed out and needed to be taken to a hospital, the group was forced to improvise.

After finding a wheelbarrow, the youths loaded their wasted friend into it and set out for Princeton General Hospital, according to Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sergeant Rob Hughes. And it was no easy journey, either. “There’s a pretty steep hill to push up,” Hughes says.

Eventually, the boys were able to flag down a passing ambulance, which brought their buddy the rest of the way. But that’s where their luck ran out. Hughes says officers contacted each of the teen’s parents and told them what their kids had been up to. “Parents, if your kids are going to be staying over at someone’s house, speak to those other parents and confirm,” Hughes says.
