A Delta Air plane's engine reportedly caught fire today after taking off from the Chinese capital. The plane, which was carrying 227 passengers, had to turn back to the Beijing Capital International Airport before making an emergency landing. One passenger described to Beijing News that she had heard a loud bang before the plane 'lost balance' mid-air. It's understood that all passengers and cabin crew are safe and uninjured. A statement issued by Delta Air Lines to MailOnline said that Delta flight 188 'experienced an issue with its engine shortly after takeoff'. The statement said that as a precautionary measure, the flight crew elected to return to Beijing. DL188 departed Beijing at 4:33pm local time, 17 minutes ahead of the schedule, according to the company's website. It was expected to arrive in Detroit at 6:35pm local time. Speaking to Beijing News, an unnamed female passenger said that she heard a loud bang while the plane was flying mid-air. She then said that she felt the aircraft was losing balance. 'It was hard to tell whether it was going up or dropping. Then we heard the captain announcing that we were to turn back.' The same passenger said after the plane had landed, it was surrounded by 'many fire engines and ambulances'. A video clip taken by an eyewitness on the ground shows flames bursting from the right engine as the plane flew over. The aircraft landed safely under power of both engines and taxied to the gate, according to the airline. The company also said that it's re-accommodating customers on another aircraft from the Narita International Airport in Japan, which will depart Beijing 24 Hours after its originally scheduled time. Overnight accommodation in Beijing is said to have been arranged for the affected passengers.
An eight-year-old boy has been the victim of a hit-and-run attack after he was struck by a vehicle while crossing the road. The young boy was crossing Benowa Road on the Gold Coast in Queensland when he was hit by an orange hatchback. CCTV footage shows the car stop for around 15 seconds before driving away and leaving the injured boy at the scene. The boy - who appeared to be on his way to school - then limps to the other side of the road as the car speeds away before he headed back in the opposite direction. Police have released footage of the incident which happened at 8.15am on Thursday morning in the Gold Coast suburb of Benowa and are appealing for the driver involved to come forward. The boy was taken to the hospital with a non-life-threatening leg injury. Acting Senior Sergeant Josh Gunter said it was 'very concerning' that the driver of the hatchback failed to provide assistance to the child or contact appropriate emergency services. 'Anyone involved in a traffic incident like this is obliged to stop at the scene and render assistance,' he said. 'I would encourage the driver of the vehicle involved or anyone who may have witnessed the incident to come forward and speak with police. It is also a timely reminder for drivers to be vigilant in and around school zones.' Police are also appealing for anyone who may have dash cam footage of the incident to contact police or Crime Stoppers.
The driver said he 'just about stopped' before hitting the cyclist but did hit the back of the bike in the incident in Pelsall in the West Midlands.

A kite surfer used survival techniques to make a life raft out of his equipment in dangerously cold water while emergency services searched for him in the sea. Devon coastguard teams, lifeboat crews, an ambulance and a search and rescue helicopter were called to reports of a kite surfer in difficulties in North Devon on Monday night. He spent approximately an hour in the 11.4 degrees centigrade water and bent the inflation tube at the front of the kite to create a makeshift life raft and the above video from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency shows how he was rescued.
A man who was allegedly driving erratically down a busy highway has had a lucky escape, after his car was reduced to a wreckage following a high-speed collision. Incredible footage of the moment the driver lost control of his vehicle and clipped a truck, before spinning out of control was captured on the semi-trailer's dash cam. The accident, which occurred on the Roe Highway in Perth, Western Australia, came after eyewitnesses reported seeing the Holden 'weaving in and out of traffic' down the packed highway.
Allegedly a suicide but it looks like he slipped ..... there appears to be another person taking photo's at the top of the tower, while the person who falls is a little lower at just to the left. Very possible the victim was wanting more "Likes" on social media ? Other reports suggest that it was a genuine suicide after he had an argument with his baby-momma who cheated on him, and that firemen had set up an airbag, but there seems to be a lack of activity supporting this.
After the driver miscalculated a turn during a race on the Salmon River in Idaho, a speedboat named Maniac 313 crashed into a pile of rocks. The boat landed upside down, seemingly trapping the passengers underwater. Luckily, they both survived, escaping without any reported injuries.
The horrifying moment a father and son had to jump for their lives after their boat exploded was captured on CCTV camera. Their 25-foot Bertram boat had just refueled and was sailing out of Runaway Bay marina on the Gold Coast when it suddenly exploded and burst into flames. A 19-year-old man in a high-vis vest was standing on the bottom deck of the boat and climbed up to the top a mere second before the explosion. If the teenager had waited even an instant longer he would likely have been seriously injured, but instead he and his father had a lucky escape. They jumped into the water unscathed and were picked up by another boat as their craft burned to the waterline in a huge fireball three metres high. The marina was filled with thick plumes of black smoke billowing from the burning boat and was not extinguished for hours. Police were not treating the blaze as suspicious but were investigating what went wrong.
A tram driver does not even flinch as she bulldozes into a car crossing the line, sending the vehicle spinning into the road and metal and glass flying. Shocking tram cab CCTV shows the moment the driver smashed into a car in Minsk, Belarus. The female driver remains completely poker faced as she ploughs through the people carrier at a crossing. After the collision she calmly stops her tram and gets out. The footage was posted on YouTube, where viewers were shocked and in awe of the drivers' blaise approach to crashing. One commenter said: 'Such calm. It's as if every day the tram is ramming someone.' Another added: 'It is like watching skittles.' One viewer joked: 'No f***s were given that day by the tram driver.'

One is seen leaning back into the smoking Golf to retrieve what is thought to be his mobile
This is the heart-stopping moment a toddler survived after being hit and run over by two cars consecutively. CCTV footage shows the girl, aged two, sprinting on a busy road in Sichuan province before being knocked down in the morning of April 24. The girl was taken to the hospital afterwards and is said to sustain minor injuries on her head. Surveillance footage, posted to Youku, captured the girl's escape which took place at a crossroad in Xichang City. Prior to the accident, the toddler was accompanied by her grandmother, the report on thecover.cn said. Then the little girl wandered off and scurried across a busy road. But her small size meant she could not be seen over the bumper and was invisible to the drivers at the wheel. She was being knocked down to the ground and got run over by a white SUV. She can be seen lying face down on the floor. Moments later, another SUV, also white, moved forward to run over her as the driver failed to see the girl. Her grandmother quickly rushed to the scene and picked up the girl. The girl was sent to hospital for checkup and she only suffered minor scratches on her head. The Xichang City traffic police is investigating into the incident.

It's a scene that would make any parent shudder -- a 4-year-old girl tumbles out of the back of a moving bus in the middle of a busy highway.
Video of the incident shows the back door of the bus springing open and the young girl plummeting to the road. "I couldn't believe it, it was so shocking," said Ryan Ciampoli, who was driving behind the bus in Harrison, Arkansas.
Ciampoli, who is a trained emergency medical technician, ran to the little girl's rescue after her terrifying tumble on Wednesday. His vehicle is fitted with a dash cam that recorded the incident because he sometimes uses it when on duty, Ciampoli said.
At first the girl was unconscious, but he cradled her and talked to her until she came round.
"For a very brief time she had got enough consciousness to say 'where is my mommy?,'" he said.
He picked her off the hot pavement and moved her off the busy road while waiting on emergency medical services. "Obviously you want to leave her laying there, if she's not in danger, but we're in the middle of a state highway," he told CNN affiliate KHBS-TV. "So I couldn't leave her just laying there."
The little girl is recovering at the hospital. She suffered a broken jaw and will undergo surgery.
It is unclear if she opened the door or if it wasn't locked. CNN has reached out to police for comment but they weren't immediately available Sunday.

Thirteen ferry passengers were injured when the boat slammed into a breakwater in a port on the Canary Islands, Spanish authorities said Saturday. Manolo Vidal, spokesman for Naviera Armas, the company that owns the ferry, says that a "loss of electrical power" caused the accident as the boat was leaving the Puerta de la Luz on the island of Gran Canaria Friday night. Emergency services say five of the injured needed to receive attention at a hospital. Televised images showed the ferry hitting the breakwater head-on, sending chunks of the concrete wall tumbling down onto a service road. The regional government says it has activated an emergency plan to deal with the 3-kilometer (two-mile) fuel spill caused when the boat's impact damaged fuel lines running along the breakwater. The company says that the ferry was able to dock following the accident and that the passengers had been placed in hotels.
A fast-acting Georgia firefighter caught a baby that a desperate father dropped out of the second story window of a burning building. Firefighter Robert Sutton was among the first DeKalb County firefighters to arrive on the scene of an apartment fire in the Glenwood neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia on Wednesday when he heard a man shouting from above. 'He was a little guy, so when I heard his father yelling "Help," and saw him hanging out the window with the baby in his arms, I just went into action. I just did what any of the other firefighters out here would have done,' Sutton told Fox 5 Atlanta. 'I just said "Drop him." He did and I am blessed to have been in a position to catch the baby.' Sutton, who grew up near the apartment complex, added that, 'It was my first time in a situation like that.' In the video, Sutton — a 10-year DeKalb County firefighter veteran — can be seen enveloped in grey smoke, standing underneath the window waiting for the baby to fall. Behind him, a second firefighter rushes over to act as backup. Once the baby lands in Sutton's arms, he pauses for a second to cradle the child to his chest and then hurries to get the baby away from the smoke. 'It was a remarkable sight to see something like that. They were on it,' master plumber Larry Carter told Fox 5 Atlanta. Carter, who filmed Sutton's quick-thinking act, was working on the building next to the one that caught fire. 'All of a sudden you heard a man screaming. When I heard there was a baby, my heart started fluttering. But the firefighters [got] up to the window fast and the one guy just caught it like a football pass. It was something to see,' Carter said. After watching the video of Sutton catching the baby, DeKalb County Fire Rescue Captain Tom Burrell said, 'There's not really one thing that prepares you for what Firefighter Sutton and his colleagues encountered yesterday. It's good training. It's years of experience and having a good sense of situational awareness. I'm just really proud.' Sutton attributed the well-timed catch to his training and the commitment he and his fellow firefighters have towards helping people. 'I grew up in this community and it's just an honor to be able to help people here and work with the great guys I work with,' Sutton said. 'We do this together and I'm just happy and blessed to be able to help that father and his baby. It's our job. 'I'm just glad they were both OK,' he added.
A circus crowd gasped in horror as an acrobat plunged the equivalent of a three-storey building from the arms of her husband. But luckily Maria Syulgina sustained only a broken left arm and a mild concussion in the tumble that could have claimed her life. The mishap occurred during her performance in Minsk the capital of Belarus in a show called, 'Incredible fountains. Amazing city.' She was performing with her onstage partner and husband Evgeniy Pisarev. During a crucial pirouette high above the auditorium she failed to cling on to her husband when he slipped and she plunged nearly 60 feet to the ground. The crowd gasped in horror, afraid for the worst as she was tended to by medics. But later came the good news that she was not too badly hurt. She cannot, however, expect any compensation for her injuries, however slight. The circus administration made a statement that there is no way that Ms Syulgina will get any money as it was her own decision to perform without safety equipment. The show's spokesman said: 'Some artists perform without using safety nets. It is their own decision.' Ms Syulgina later explained her decision to risk her life without safety equipment which she said would impede her ability to perform her routine correctly It is not the first time Ms Syulgina has come a cropper during her daredevil act. Five years ago during a performance in Germany she fell and broke her tibia bone. She has been working as a circus gymnast for the past 12 years. She said: 'This is a professional trauma. I am not scared to perform again, every artiste is ready for it.'
While NASCAR drivers get most of the fame and glory, the other team members behind the car are equally important. The six pit crew members allowed over the wall during a pit stop are trusted to get the car in and out with new tires and gas in a matter of seconds. But there’s obviously a bit of a risk handling heavy equipment as cars come flying down pit road. Sunday at the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, Chris Buescher was headed in for a pit stop and was hit by rookie Erik Jones’ No. 77, sending the No. 37 car spinning into his pit stall. The car plowed into jackman Zack Young, who’s relatively OK, all things considered.
A man traveling along a California freeway captured the shocking moment a car that was wedged onto the back of a big rig was dragged miles down the road. Brian Steimke was driving down I-15 freeway on Wednesday afternoon when he witnessed the burgundy Nissan Maxima stuck under the truck. As Steimke gets closer to the car, he notices the driver waving his hand out of the window in an attempt to get the truck driver's attention. 'He's not stopping,' the driver of the car shouted to Steimke. The video, which was uploaded to Facebook, showed major damage to the passenger side of the car. The windshield was also destroyed and the airbags had deployed as smoke spewed from the car while it was being dragged down the freeway. As Steimke drives up and pulls over, another car could be seen braking in front of the truck, forcing him to stop. Steimke then gets out of his vehicle and walks up to the truck driver. 'Why were you driving so far?' Steimke asked the man, who hasn't been identified. The truck driver asked, 'so far?' not seeming to realize he was dragging the car for several miles. Steimke explained to the man that the guy was wedged on the back of his truck, to which the truck driver responded: 'I didn't know.' 'What do you mean you didn't know it dude?' a surprised Steimke asked. 'He's on your truck!' Steimke told the trucker that he needed to get out of the big rig before walking to check on the driver of the Nissan. The badly damaged vehicle was propped against the rear tire of the truck. It's unclear how the car managed to get wedged under the big rig and the driver of the Nissan hasn't been identified.
This is the dramatic moment a truck driver sent sparks flying inside Sydney's airport tunnel this morning, setting off the sprinklers and causing traffic chaos. A motorist filmed as the apparently unaware trucker scraped against the walls and smashed into the sprinkler system, creating plumes of acrid smoke. The crash at 6.45am caused hours of congestion for commuters heading south towards the airport, with one lane closed because it was flooded. At one stage there were 4km queues near the tunnel, but traffic has since eased. The flow of water from the broken sprinklers was so severe that motorists were forced to use their wipers as they inched through the tunnel earlier this morning. Traffic officials told motorists to 'expect significant delays'. The sprinklers were switched off shortly after the crash and no more water is leaking into the tunnel. John Sunde was cycling through the tunnel when the truck hit the sprinklers. He posted a picture of the aftermath on Instagram, adding that the malfunctioning sprinklers had given him an 'early shower'.
This terrifying footage shows the moment petrified passengers screamed and chanted prayers as smoke filled their plane when an engine appeared to catch fire after taking off in Nigeria. Footage captured by a passenger showed people praying loudly, screaming and weeping as the crew prepared to make an emergency landing. Panicked travellers could smell something burning about 20 minutes after take-off and smoke then began to fill the aircraft and alarms went off. The plane was carrying 53 passengers, including a seven-month-old baby, Sahara Reporters said. As smoke filled the cabin, oxygen masks failed to deploy and passengers were told to cover their mouths and noses with wet towels handed out by the crew, the report claimed. Passenger Oriakwu Okwesilieze, who recorded the footage, said the Aero Contractors plane 'started smoking' about 20 minutes into a domestic flight from Port Harcourt to Lagos in Nigeria on Wednesday. She wrote on Twitter: 'I escaped death. I'm still shaky, this experience is one I can't forget easily. Over 30 minutes we were chanting prayers as our flight was filled with smoke. 'Aero flight went up in flames...one of the blades was burning. Twenty minutes after take off, the flight started smoking. For 35 minutes we were chanting prayers, screaming, panicking....like we just took off and I'm about to die? Nah! God can't let this happen. The smoke was so thick we couldn't see, the blades were sparking. 'Pilot said we should calm down but something was burning, smelling and the smoke got thicker, the alarms went off but he said to calm down? 'He said anyone that can't breathe should use a wet handkerchief. Ha! All I could think about was my family. Hell no I'm not dying today. 'I prayed and quoted all the Bible verses I could think of. I was shaking, the plane was moving up and down, women were screaming at the back. I'm just grateful to be alive.' The plane was met by firefighters when it made an emergency landing 35 minutes after take-off. Nigeria's Civil Aviation Authority and the airline are investigating the incident. A spokesman for the airline - whose slogan is 'the reliable way to fly' - said everything appeared as normal during a routine pre-flight check of the plane. He said an alarm sounded and smoke filled the cabin when a passenger went into a lavatory. The spokesman commended the pilot and crew for their 'professionalism' during the emergency. The incident comes two years after another Aero Contractors flight suffered a technical fault during a domestic flight in Nigeria. About 20 minutes after take-off, the plane suddenly lost altitude and began to 'wobble', forcing the flight crew to make an emergency landing. Passengers also recounted smoke coming from the engine during that 2015 mid-air drama.
This is the shocking moment a car was filmed smashing into parked vehicles at high speed causing the occupants to flee. A red Peugeot 308 was caught on camera ploughing into four other cars, damaging two so badly they were written off. The vehicle first crashed into a silver car in the street in Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire, before spinning around 180 degrees and hitting three other cars. CCTV footage then caught the driver, who was wearing red shorts, fleeing the scene while another man and a woman emerge gingerly from the Peugeot holding a dog. And witnesses said the pair were then seen trying to flag down cars to give them a lift away from the area. Residents are then seen gathering around the horror crash, with some pointing and shouting at the driver as he ran off. Stewart Wilson, a bassist in a local band whose van was hit in the incident, said: 'I live opposite to where it happened and luckily had it installed. I saw the red car come down Barcroft Street at such speed. 'It hit the convertible, a Peugeot, and then spun round, hitting at least three or four others.' The red Peugeot initially hit a silver Peugeot 307, before striking the white Ford Transit van, a Volkswagen Golf and a black Renault Espace. The silver Peugeot and the Renault were both written off while the other vehicles sustained minor damage. Eye-witness Sarah Usher said: 'My mum saw this car go past while she was walking my two-year-old son to the shop, sickens me to think this could have hit them.' Kellie Marie Roffee said: 'We drove past five minutes after this, they could have got us if we were five minutes before.' Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to call police on 101, quoting log number 467 of April 19.
