What's Fresh 14/04/2017

Cyclone Cook may be bringing devastation to NZ - but these kids don't seem to mind.

Video posted to Facebook by Pukekos Educare Ltd shows children enjoying the rain, by shooting down the slide into a giant mud puddle.

"Spontaneous fun erupted this afternoon as the heavy (yet warm) rains come down in buckets," the caption reads.

"The efficient chain gang of teachers had a shower, warm fluffy towels and dry clothes at the ready!"

It's something viewers hope the children will remember.

"I picture those kids in [more than 20] years still remembering this as the 'best day ever'," one commenter wrote.
