HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - It's so hot in parts of China that streets are buckling. But zookeepers in Beijing are working to keep the animals cool and comfortable. Each animal gets 10 icy treats a day, plus sprinklers are running so they can take a shower any time they want. Zoo managers said, they began preparing for the heat months ago.

Sanford Hospital nurses in South Dakota are taking an extra step to take away a child's fear in the operating room. They sew special operating room caps and scrubs, and have the kids pick out their own. The nurses say kids see this as dressing up, and end up being less scared of being in the OR.
