How one-punch victim's dad is helping save young lives The sight, sound and smell of Kings Cross is hard for Ralph Kelly to stomach. “I feel sick, to be honest with you. I rarely come back, especially at night time – it’s just a place I don’t want to be," he said. But this broken father will do it, if it means children – as he calls them – get home safely. “You just don’t want to be in a situation where your child has been attacked and nobody – nobody – should have to go through it," he told A Current Affair. © A Current Affair Ralph Kelly speaks with reporter Natalie Clancy about the Take Kare and Stay Kind initiatives.

It was the drone shot that got everyone talking - and questioning - on social media.

Sydney Morning Herald photographer Nick Moir has come to the defence of his photo that caused controversy online, explaining why he couldn't save the animals stuck in mud at Lake Cawndilla near Menindee.

Some people had questioned why photographs were taken, but the animals were not rescued. Moir said he tried to help - but simply couldn't.

"I took the shot with a drone about a kilometre and a half away from the lake bed," Moir said. "People forget if the roo got stuck in the soft mud, it wouldn't have been so great for me either."

Grown Woman Dressed As Baby for Birthday Photo Shoot Becomes Internet Sensation: '336 Months' A South Carolina photographer created a baby shoot for her 336-month-old best friend. A grown woman in South Carolina created a social media sensation by allowing herself to be swaddled like a baby in photos celebrating her turning 336 months old. Photographer Stephanie Smith staged the "baby shoot" for best friend Nicole Ham, who was having a little trouble turning 28. Her birthday is Dec. 29, and everything on her news feed, she told Smith, was images of babies and young families, all of them looking deliriously happy to be celebrating Christmas.

"That's not to say I didn't give it a go."

After reporting the stuck animals to NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, Mr Moir went back to the spot later with another person, who also agreed the mud was too soft to drive on and would result in the car being bogged.

"It would have been irresponsible to go out and do so and it would have been dangerous; only recently a person was attacked trying to help out a roo," he said. "I certainly did feel bad, but the entire point of the photo was to show just how horrible the situation was and to bring attention to it."

The drone shot accompanied a report on the effects of extreme heat and continuing drought on wildlife, following on from the horrific mass fish kill on the Darling River as reported by Peter Hannam.

"The importance of Nick's photo is that it's a reminder that the fish kill was only one of the aspects of an ecosystem under stress," Hannam said.

"Nick's photo illustrates some of the other struggles going on out there, and the fact that other wildlife will soon have similar problems."
