HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

In what's trending today, the movie "Sully" is being released today. Starring Tom Hanks, it's based on the U.S. Airlines pilot Sully Sullenberger who managed to achieve that thing we always thought was mythical, a water landing. But did you know this? Someone else who experienced a water landing is the film's director. When Clint Eastwood was in the Army he was flying from Fort Ord to Washington state to see his parents when the single-engine Navy plane ditched off Point Reyes. Eastwood and the others aboard had to swim ashore.

There's a cheerleader at Foothill High School in Palo Cedro, California who is battling Leukemia. Before last week's football game, the team decided to give her some love. Ashley Adamietz was diagnosed last month. As the team entered the field before its game against Spanish Springs, each player dropped an orange rose at Ashley's feet. It brought her to tears. She's apparently has been going through daily chemotherapy treatment. This was organized by senior football player Ryan Caetano. He said - Ashley is "part of the cougar family, so why not let her know that we're all here for her. We are. So I wanted to let that be known to everybody, and especially to her, for what she's going through."

The Placer County Sheriff's department posted a video of a bear  that starts to knock over one of its garbage cans. Then you hear the deputy tell him that he shouldn't do it. He keeps warning him and amazingly, the bear listens.

There's a place in Brazil where people stand in line just to take a picture. It has a breath taking view off a cliff with the water behind it. Dan shared what appeared to be very daring pictures of people. When we looked into it, we realized that it just looks like they're taking their lives into their own hands. In reality, the cliff drop is only about 3 feet.
