(KFVS) -

Tuesday morning has provided some great trends that have people talking. Here's a rundown of the top stories online.

A Navy diver surprised his soon-to-be family at the Newport Aquarium in Cincinnati on Monday and the story has been making waves ever since!

Ryan Goodwin had been deployed for eight months and made a big splash when he pretended to be an aquarium diver in the shark tank, answering questions from kids in the audience.

Goodwin then identified himself to his soon-to-be step-daughters but the girls didn't believe it was him until they saw him get out the tank!

Some hotels are encouraging weekend guests to rest up this summer.

A new check-out policy being implemented at some hotels would allow visitors to stay a full 24-hours without an extra fee on Sundays.

A person would just have to book the extra time in advance.

Reportedly, Sunday nights tend to be the slowest for hotels so there isn't much pressure for housekeepers to get rooms ready for the next guests.

Something that seems to be everywhere recently is the story of a squirrel that attacked a snake on a woman's back porch in Arizona.

The woman called 911 and firefighters came to her home to break up the brawl, but not before filming it on a phone.

You can watch the full video of the strange fight by clicking here.

A teenager in England is struggling with a very rare disease that causes her to physically age very quickly.

The disease only impacts approximately 2,000 people around the world and causes tissue and bone under the skin to deteriorate giving the look of extreme premature aging.

One of the worst feelings is when you discover your computer has a virus or is infected by other hazardous stuff.

Take a look at some of the warning signs of an infected computer.

One thing to remember, though, is that even if your computer is not acting strange or having issues, a virus could still be inside your device.

The best way to combat a virus or other malicious problems is to be sure anti-virus software and other computer programs are all up-to-date and running properly.
