Here’s what’s trending online heading into the weekend. 

1. A fuzzy image of what is said to be a distraught doctor coping with the loss of a 19-year-old patient has struck a compassionate chord with Reddit users. The poignant photo has received nearly 4,000 comments.

“The man pictured was unable to save one of his patients,” wrote NickMoore911, a Reddit user who claims to be an EMT, and who posted to the photo with the doctor’s permission. “Though this is a common occurrence in our field of work, the patients we lose are typically old, sick, or some combination of the two. The patient that died was 19 years old, and for him, it was one of those calls we get sometimes that just hits you.

“I think people should know that the care providers are just as human as the patients, and this shows that stronger than anything I’ve seen in a long while.”

2. These are the funniest potato chips ever

3. People will sometimes go to great lengths to cheat on a test. On Thursday in India, they were going to great heights. Who are the people scaling this building, some of them as high as four stories up? Friends of and family of students taking India’s nationwide 10th-grade examinations. And they’re not saying hello, they’re calling out answers.
