The victims have been identified as Cynthia Peak, 61; Katherine Koonce, 60; Mike Hill, 61; and Evelyn Dieckhaus, Hallie Scruggs and William Kinney, all aged nine.

2. Hockey Canada says 2018 junior players ineligible for international competition

Hockey Canada says players from that team will not be considered for international play until the investigation has wrapped up.

3. Great Dane births 21 puppies in 27 hours

You can call Namina, a two-year-old Great Dane, a supermom. The dog went into labour last Wednesday and it lasted well into Thursday, as Namine birthed 21 puppies over a 27-hour span. Unfortunately, two of the puppies died shortly after birth, but nearly all of the dogs weighed over a pound. Namine’s proud owner, Tanya Dubbs of Pocahontas, Virginia, said she was surprised by the number of puppies born, expecting something closer to 13-14.

4. No atmosphere found at faraway Earth-sized world

Scientists using the Webb Space Telescope have found no evidence of an atmosphere at one of the seven rocky, Earth-sized planets orbiting another star, noting that news does not bode well for the other six planets in that solar system. The Trappist solar system has long enticed astronomers since it was spotted just 40 light-years away.

5. Amateur gold digger makes incredible $220,000 find in Australia
