Tuesday morning online trends 4/30

(KFVS) -

Research shows that Tuesday is the most depressing day of the week, but here's a couple of online trends to help perk you up and give you something to talk about today.

Something that's trending on several news sites is the story of a man who died and left his nearly $40 million fortune to no one.

The man apparently had no children, his wife died in the early 1990s and he reportedly didn't have a will.

According to Yahoo News, the man's fortune is the largest unclaimed estate in New York history.

Relatives will be sought out, but if none are found the estate would become the property of the state.

From the "Weird News" category, officials in California are trying to figure out how a truck got stuck 10 feet up in a tree.

After much investigation, there doesn't seem to be any theory yet as to how this happened and no one was reported hurt as a result of the strange incident.
