When Miriam Rodríguez’s 20-year-old daughter, Karen Alejandra Salinas Rodriguez, went missing in 2014, she began tracking the people responsible for the kidnapping and murder. In the three years that followed her daughter’s disappearance until her own death at the hands of the cartel, Rodríguez hunted down at least 10 people, completely on her own.

Rodríguez, unwilling to accept law enforcement’s excuses and unwillingness to look further into her daughter’s kidnapping, began stalking and successfully capturing nearly every living member of the crew that had abducted her daughter for ransom. She took on fake identities, dyed her hair, and got close to those she thought were tied to the kidnappers to get names, addresses, and their daily rituals. On Mother’s Day, 2017, after coming home from chasing down another one of her daughter’s kidnappers, she was shot thirteen times, in front of her home, by some of the people she had helped put away.

Irena Stanisława Sendler (née Krzyżanowska), also referred to as Irena Sendlerowa in Poland, nom de guerre Jolanta (15 February 1910 – 12 May 2008), was a Polish humanitarian, social worker, and nurse who served in the Polish Underground Resistance during World War II in German-occupied Warsaw. From October 1943 she was head of the children's section of Żegota, the Polish Council to Aid Jews (Polish: Rada Pomocy Żydom).

In the 1930s, Sendler conducted her social work as one of the activists connected to the Free Polish University. From 1935 to October 1943, she worked for the Department of Social Welfare and Public Health of the City of Warsaw. During the war she pursued conspiratorial activities, such as rescuing Jews, primarily as part of the network of workers and volunteers from that department, mostly women. Sendler participated, with dozens of others, in smuggling Jewish children out of the Warsaw Ghetto and then providing them with false identity documents and shelter with willing Polish families or in orphanages and other care facilities, including Catholic nun convents, saving those children from the Holocaust.

The Bailong Elevator (Chinese: 百龙电梯; literally Hundred Dragons Elevator) is a glass double-deck elevator built onto the side of a huge cliff in the Wulingyuan area of Zhangjiajie, People's Republic of China that is 326 m (1,070 ft) high. It is claimed to be the highest and heaviest outdoor elevator in the world. Construction of the elevator began in October 1999, and it was opened to the public by 2002. The environmental effects of the elevator have been a subject of debate and controversy, as the Wulingyan area was designated a World Heritage Site in 2002. Operations were stopped for 10 months in 2002–2003, reportedly due to safety concerns, not environmental ones.

On 15 July 2015, the elevator was officially recognised by Guinness World Records as the world's tallest outdoor elevator.
