    A Massachusetts high school student got more than his diploma Saturday when he received a heartwarming surprise as his father unexpectedly returned from a year-long stint overseas in the military.

    Marshfield Student Broadcasting posted the emotional video on Facebook.

    In the video, the student, Tyler Solomon, is seen accepting his diploma. He then catches a glimpse of his father, Army Sgt. Damon Solomon, who is still in uniform. The emotional graduate rushes from the stage to embrace his returning dad.

    Tyler wasn't the only one surprised at his father's return. Apparently, the entire family was kept in the dark until his father arrived at the football field where the ceremony was held.

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
