    Forensic police investigate a truck at the scene of a terror attack on the Promenade des Anglais on July 15, 2016 in Nice, France.

    A man who lost his wife and son in the deadly truck attack in Nice, France, died Thursday from injuries he suffered in the rampage, according to authorities, NBC News reported. 

    Pierre Hattermann’s wife Francoise and his son were killed in the attack. His 14-year-old daughter is still in the hospital, French newspaper Nice Matin and other media reported. 

    That brings the death toll to 85, authorities said.

    [NATL] Pig Escapes Slaughterhouse Fate, Sells Original Paintings

    A pig who escaped slaughter is now living out her life in a South African sanctuary and painting original works that have sold for up to $2,000.

    "She was really small when I rescued her," said Joanne Lefson, who manages the South African Farm Sanctuary, a haven for rescued farm animals where the pig now lives. "She's very smart and intelligent so I placed a few balls and some paintbrushes and things in her pen, and it wasn't long before I discovered that she really liked the bristles and the paintbrush...She just really took a knack for it."

    Funds from the art sales go towards the sanctuary.
