This doctor restored our faith in humanity

Before heading in to surgery, Dr. Daniel McNeely's 8-year-old patient made one request: could he fix the torn arm of his teddy bear before going under?

McNeely, a surgeon at IWK Health Centre in Halifax, was happy to oblige. "How could I say no?" McNeely wrote on Twitter, along with images of the teddy bear's "procedure."

The tweet went viral, generating more than 35,000 likes and nearly 16,000 retweets. 

The Canadian doctor even made sure the bear was wearing an anesthesia mask for the surgery. "Neonatal face mask — helps to preserve the teddy bear’s anonymity!" tweeted McNeely.

A girl was playing in a lake. Then she found a 1,500-year-old sword.

Isn't this how King Arthur got his start? Eight-year-old Saga Vanacek was playing in a lake in Sweden when she found a sword which experts say dates back to the pre-Viking era.

According to a press release from local museum, the sword — made of wood, leather and metal — could have been made 1,500 years ago.

The sword is now being kept at the museum while local officials search the lake for more relics. 

Meanwhile, some people are calling Saga the "Queen of Sweden."
