Heart-breaking pictures have emerged showing how a loyal dog guarded its dead friend and even tried to wake it up on a busy road in China. The brown husky, lying in the middle of the road, was killed by a passing car in Zhejiang Province on April 17. The cream-coloured dog desperately pawed and mournfully barked at its dead friend until their own came to pick them up.
An elderly citizen has been hauled from freezing waters by brave rescuers after accidentally falling into a lake while fishing. Incredible footage shows rescuers Siim Malva and Margus Tamme plucking the pensioner from the Harku River in Tallinn, Estonia, after receiving the alert. During the video, they can be seen quickly getting dressed before arriving at the lake and dashing in. The elderly man can be seen using icepicks to keep himself from going under and appeared to be frozen in position as Mr Malva and Mr Tamme hauled him to safety. 'Somebody saw him from the window and called 112,' said Meelis Piller, an advisor to the Communication Office of The Rescue Board. The Estonian emergency services responded to the distress call in just 17 minutes - they received the alert at 2:14pm and the man was pulled out of the lake at 2:31pm. He added: 'Men in the rescue car take three minutes to dress (for an ice rescue). They do it in the car, otherwise those three minutes can be fatal for a victim.' 'Fifteen minutes in cold water can be fatal. 'The man could not move, but he was conscious. He suffered no injuries from the incident.' The man was out fishing when the ice beneath him collapsed, causing him to fall in to the freezing water. After being rescued from the frozen water the elderly man was transported to the hospital for a medical examination. Mr Piller warned: 'We have some people who like to go to ice fishing and they never think about how dangerous thin ice can be.'

One person has died and two are injured after a US Army Black Hawk helicopter crashed on to a Maryland golf course on Monday. The UH60 Blackhawk crashed on to the green at the Breton Bay Golf Course in Leonardtown at 1.37pm on Monday afternoon. It belongs to Fort Belvoir, a US Army base 70 miles away in Virginia. One of its crew died and two others are in serious and critical condition in hospital. They all belong to the 12th Aviation Battalion, stationed at Davison Airfield at Fort Belvoir and were taking part in a routine training flight when the crash occurred. The accident is under investigation. Leonardtown Volunteer Fire Department told DailyMail.com there were three people on board. 'We are deeply saddened by this loss within our community,' said Maj. Gen. Bradley A. Becker, commanding general, Joint Force Headquarters National Capital Region and the U.S. Army Military District of Washington. 'Our condolences go out to the families and friends affected by this tragedy, and our team is focused on supporting them during this difficult time.' Fire fighters were seen trying to pull the soldiers from the wreckage after the crash. Golfers who ran on to the course after watching the helicopter go down were seen carrying one injured person from the wreckage.
Police have confirmed that the helicopter crashed in Leonardtown, Maryland.
Three people were reportedly on board – with at least one killed.
Several witnesses observed the chopper spiral out of control towards the Breton Bay Golf Course.
Elizabeth Willing told The Bay Net that she and her friend were kayaking at the time.
“We saw three helicopters. One of them was lagging behind the other two. It started spinning.
"At first we thought it was doing tricks, then it disappeared behind the tree line and then we heard a big bang.
“I saw the down copter peel off to port and disappear behind the tree line as it and a similar helo were heading toward Breton Bay,” Doug Marek added.
“The two copters had flown over Avenmar and made a port turn.”
Well, time to start the restoration process all over again...
A driver unexpectedly cuts across the road while doing a u-turn, and causes a major collision. The driver ahead clearly didn't have a proper line of sight. If u-turns are legal in this country he should have waited until traffic was clear.
A one-year-old girl miraculously survived after being run over by a car in central China on April 1. The girl just suffered minor bruises. Doctors said that it was hard to explain medically, according to the local Chutian Metropolis Daily（楚天都市报）. Surveillance camera in Chongyang county, Hubei Province shows the girl was playing on the road when she was knocked down and ran over twice by the car’s two wheels. The girl’s father said that the driver was his friend’s son, who didn’t notice his daughter on the road when reversing the car. The girl was checked in hospital. After treatment of the bruises, the girl has almost completely recovered. Doctors said the girl may have escaped without more serious injury because of unusual flexibility of her bones. “But how come the girl was able to bear so much of gravity? It is hard to explain in medically,” said one doctor.

About three dozen firefighting vehicles were sent to the scene, officials said. One nearby house was blackened by smoke.
British F4 racing driver Billy Monger, 17, suffered leg injuries after being involved in a horrific crash during a race at Donington Park on Sunday. Footage of the crash from Monger's dashboard camera - which was broadcasting live on TV at the time of the crash - show his vehicle colliding with another car, driven by Finnish driver Patrik Pasma. Pasma's car was stopped on the track in front of Monger when the teen slammed into the back of it. Following the collision, Monger's car was sent spinning as motor sport fans watched the incident unfold in real time. While Pasma was freed from his car soon after the crash, Monger was stuck in the vehicle for 90 minutes as ambulances arrived on scene. He was eventually extracted from the car at 2.30pm and was taken to hospital by air ambulance. Footage of the crash was aired on ITV, and broadcaster ITV4 later confirmed that Monger was conscious and being attended to. The extent of his injuries is unknown. Pasma's team, Carlin Racing, posted on Facebook: 'Following an incident in race three of the Formula Four British Championship at Donington Park this afternoon, Carlin driver Patrik Pasma was taken to the on-site Medical Centre for assessment.
This is the horrific moment a fuel tanker exploded next to a Louisiana highway, killing a mother-of-two. Dash cam footage captured by Andreas Plyler shows the blast after a fuel tanker rear-ended a dump truck near Luling, Louisiana on Thursday morning. The fuel tanker bursts into a massive ball of fire as drivers pass by on the busy highway. The crash lit the 8,000 gallons of gasoline the ranker was transporting. The 44-year-old driver of the dump truck, Chalanta Brown, was the only fatality, according to Louisiana State police. The mother and veteran truck driver was declared dead at the scene. The 31-year-old tanker driver, Glen Robichaux Jr, sustained moderate injuries, according to St. Charles Herald Guide. He was treated at St. Charles Parish Hospital. Impairment is not believed to be a factor in the crash. State Police spokeswoman Melissa Matey told the Herald Guide that Brown was driving 'at a very slow rate of speed for unknown reasons.' Interstate-310 South was closed for repairs the rest of the day. The investigation is ongoing.
Amusement park visitors had to be rescued by firefighters after they became trapped on a stalled roller coaster 100 feet up in the air. Two dozen people were trapped for nearly four hours on the Joker's Jinx ride at Six Flags America, in Maryland, on Thursday. Prince George's County Fire/EMS spokesman Mark Brady said on his Twitter account that the riders came to a standstill at about 5.30pm. A spokesperson for the park said in a statement: 'Joker's Jinx did not complete its regular ride cycle, causing it to stop at a safe location on the track.' The riders, the youngest being nine and ten, were upright when the roller coaster stalled. Ten passengers were brought down in a cherry picker by about 8.15pm with the rest all being on the ground by 9.20pm. Footage of the incident showed firefighters in a rescue bucket talking with the passengers, none of whom appeared to be in distress, Brady said. Javier Valverde was waiting on the ground as his children Julia, 15, and Desidariaus, 13, were stuck on the ride. 'You're worried for them because you can't go save them,' He told NBC Washington. 'If there was a ladder, I would have gone up the ladder if I could.' When he was finally reunited with his children Mr Valverde said he felt 'very, very thankful'. Six Flags' website describes the Joker's Jinx as having a 'spaghetti bowl' design, with the roller coaster doing 'a cobra roll, a sidewinder loop, a corkscrew, and countless swift reversals'. Six Flags America said: 'The safety of our guests is our highest priority and the ride will be closed for a thorough inspection before reopening.' This is not the first time passengers have been trapped on the Joker's Jinx ride. In August 2014 two dozen passengers became stuck, some for as long as five hours. A judge later ordered the park to pay one family $60,000 - $10,000 for each family member on the ride.
The world-famous Bellagio Hotel went up in flames on Thursday night shutting down the Las Vegas strip. Part of the roof of the resort, which served as the setting for the 2001 film Ocean's Eleven, was ablaze at the 4,000-room hotel, one of the largest in the world. The fire was reported at 10.46 pm last night and some 77 firefighters battled to extinguish the blaze by 11.09 pm. The Vegas Strip was closed to traffic as firefighters tackled the blaze, according to ABC7. There were no reports of any injuries and the cause is being investigated. A shocked bystander filmed the blaze as crowds gathered at the hotel, which is famous for its large dancing water fountain synchronized to music. 'Firefighting efforts were extremely difficult due to the location of the fire and access to the location,' assistant chief Larry Haydu of the CCFD said. Just last month a gunman opened fire during an armed robbery at the same hotel, prompting terrified tourists to seek shelter amid a chaotic scene. At least three people entered a high-end store inside the resort early in the morning, including one who fired gunshots, police said. Witnesses and photos suggest the armed burglary took place at the Bellagio's Rolex store, and show a person in a pig mask with a gun in hand. One woman who was at the hotel when the robbery unfolded described the atmosphere as one of 'mass panic'. 'Everyone running. I'm currently ducked on the floor under a table,' she wrote. In December last year an electrical fire at the nearby Rio Hotel sparked a huge power outage and plunged the city into darkness. At the hotel, 400 rooms were evacuated, and guests had to be accommodated elsewhere just two days before New Year's Eve. Firefighters were called just before 4.30pm to find light smoke coming from a service elevator on the 27th floor, as well as smoke on floors 27, 28 and 29.
This Mini driver came within inches of a high-speed collision with a white van after attempting a risky overtake at a junction. Dashcam footage, filmed on March 14 by Marcus Watkin, shows the white van slowing down and indicating right. The small blue car whizzes past and is forced to slam its brakes and swerve to avoid crashing into the rear of the van. After re-entering the correct lane, the Mini driver continues on despite nearly losing control of the car and ignoring the road-markings telling drivers not to over-take. Captioning the astonishing clip, Marcus said: 'Minding my own business on way back from Oswestry today, coming out of Whittington heading to Ellesmere I was witness to a guy who thought he was on the Italian Job film set.' 'What a tool, I bet his a** went a bit tight during the braking! 'Good job I checked my mirrors when I was braking, as i spotted him starting to overtake.' The footage has received more than 16,000 views and has been shared by almost 230 social media users. One viewer, Bridie Tonge, said: 'Blooming scary. There are some idiots around.' Keren Davies wrote: 'What a bloody idiot.' Steve Evans commented: 'Mini driver doesn't know what those arrows in the road mean then.' Steve Watkins responded: 'Too many folk in too much of a hurry.'
A New York City bus caught fire in Midtown Manhattan during the Thursday morning rush hour. The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but at least one witness told Fox News that they heard an explosion before the bus became engulfed in flames around 6.45am. The intersection of Lexington Avenue at East 45th Street was shut down for more than an hour while firefighters put out the flames. The fire was put out by around 7.15am, but the street wasn't opened again until 8am. No one was on the bus at the time and there have been no reports of any other injuries associated with the fire. Pictures from the scene show the back of the bus charred and that some of the windows had been broken. The engine is located in the back of the bus.
This horrifying footage shows the moment a car edged perilously close to a moving train and was smashed to pieces - sending the driver flying into a lamppost. The bizarre incident saw the vehicle slowly creeping through a closed barrier at a level crossing before bumping into the speeding locomotive. The early-morning collision immediately sent the car into a dangerous spin which ended with it hitting a lamppost and smashing to pieces. The tremendous force of the impact threw the driver from the window at Khuan Niang station in Thailand leaving him injured. CCTV footage of the incident has sparked questions about why the car hit the train, which was travelling from the capital Bangkok to Hat Yai - a city in the country's far south. Most collisions between vehicles and trains involve drivers ignoring barriers, flashing lights and other warnings before the locomotive arrives. But this time it was already heading past at full speed when the car struck. The barrier is said to have been working completely normally before the incident. Nobody except the driver was injured but the car has been written off with serious damage also caused to the train carriage. It was part of new rolling stock recently introduced to the line. The footage has been viewed across the globe after it was uploaded to a page for train enthusiasts on Facebook.
Surveillance footage captured the moment two trucks hit a wall and blocked the way in a section of tunnel on the Huyu Highway between Chongqing and Shanghai. A man got out of his sedan car after seeing the pile-up ahead, to try and warn other drivers in the tunnel.
Two buses in China sideswipe each other on a small country road, causing a panic among the passengers. The oncoming bus driver appears to have over-steered slightly as the road curved.
A thrill-seeker came within inches of death when she fell out of a bungee swing at a fairground. Shocking footage shows the woman tumble out of the swing but luckily her legs remain stuck in the ropes so she doesn't fall to the ground. As the swing races past the ground, the upside-down woman's head comes dangerously close to smashing into an elevated platform. She remains dangling as the swing eventually comes to a halt with the help of two shocked onlookers who grab her arm to slow the bungee as it swings back and fourth. The accident happened at the foire du trône, an annual fair held in a park in central Paris. Footage was posted online with the caption: 'Accident presque mortel à la foire du trône 2017 (near fatal accident at the foire du trone 2017).'
Terrifying footage captures the moment a mother flipped her car 14 feet into the air after swigging vodka while driving with her baby son. Tania Chikwature, 32, was three times the drink drive limit when she crashed her Nissan Qashqai while hurtling towards a roundabout on the A605 in Peterborough. Her toddler, aged 20 months, was sat in the back of the car but fortunately, escaped without any serious injuries. Chickwature, from Conventry, was jailed for 26 weeks for driving with excess alcohol and dangerous driving, at Peterborough magistrates' court.
This harrowing dashcam footage shows a motorcyclist reaching speeds of up to 170mph - just minutes before his best friend was killed in a horror crash. The video has been released by police as a warning to drivers tempted to break the law by speeding during the recent sunny spell. The terrifying clip shows the bikers Fred Bowden and Andrew Prowse weaving in and out of traffic at the highest speeds ever recorded. The 25-mile ride in Devon and Cornwall left witnesses fearing for their lives. Police officer Tim Swarbrick said: 'I would appeal for all motorists to adhere to the speed limit. 'Watching this video was not pleasant viewing and the subsequent incident was a tragedy for everyone, not least the traffic officers who had to attend the collision. 'At that speed, there is just no time to react and what we have seen on the video is truly shocking. 'The footage shows the bike carrying out dangerous overtaking manouvres, contravening white lines and actions which force other motorists to move out of the way. 'Other drivers being overtaken during this journey made comments that one or both of these motorcyclists may die - sadly this proved to be the case.' With a camera strapped to his motorbike Bowden followed Prowse as the pair broke the speed limit 30 times in just 20 minutes. He was still filming after 25 miles when his friend clipped a car with his Kawasaki ZX10R and was thrown under an oncoming camper van. Mr Prowse, 46, was decapitated and died instantly. In a horrific scene inadvertently caught on camera by Bowden, he became 'tangled up' in the vehicle's wheels and his legs and head were torn off. Off-duty St Ives policeman James Gallienne found a scene of 'blood and unrecognisable body parts' and immediately called 999, the court heard. The officer told a previous hearing: 'I could see a small video camera mounted on the fuel tank of the black bike - I could see it was still running.' It later emerged that Bowden had been clocked during the chase at a top speed of 156mph - but his speedometer had reached speeds of 170mph, Truro Crown Court heard in 2009. The court was told that Bowden was caught speeding 30 times - riding 70mph in a 40mph limit, 100mph in a 60mph limit and 124mph in a 70mph limit. Bowden, a 42-year-old father-of-four from Helston, Cornwall, pleaded guilty to a charge of dangerous driving but escaped a jail term. He was given a 51-week jail sentence suspended for two years, fined £190 and disqualified from driving for three years. The prison sentence was suspended after the dead man's family asked the court to show lenience because he and Bowden had been close friends. Judge Christopher Elwen told Bowden at the time: 'This wild ride came to an end with the tragic death of your long-time and close friend Andrew Prowse. 'What has been seen on the video was a prolonged course of dangerous driving with grossly high speeds and inappropriate overtaking. 'Motorists were alarmed and afraid for their lives. You will have to live with this for the rest of your life. 'In view of exceptionally powerful mitigation I will suspend the prison term for two years.' Bowden, a car mechanic, had intended to take his son for a ride that day but Mr Prowse, his friend since school, arrived at his house and suggested they go for a ride. Mr Prowse, also of Helston, then fitted his video camera to Bowden's petrol tank and the pair raced along the A30 in Tolvaddon, Camborne. One witness told his passenger as they were overtaken by the speeding pair: 'Those idiots are going to die if they carry on driving like that'. Minutes later Mr Prowse overtook a Ford Mondeo at 100mph, clipped a hatchback and was thrown under a van. At an inquest into Mr Prowse's death, the couple driving the camper van, Michael and Julia Clements, said they were 'traumatised' by the accident. Mr Clements, an artist, said: 'That scene will stay with me for the rest of my life.' Defending Bowden, Robert Linford said: 'Nobody can punish him as much as he has punished himself. They had ridden together a lot. 'Mr Prowse was known to the defendant since their school days. They were best friends and their family were close. He must now live with the knowledge of what happened to his friend.'
A bus and a car were swallowed into a large sinkhole formed on Chennai's arterial road Anna Salai, after a portion of the street caved in, Sunday. Several bus passengers suffered minor injuries in the incident.
A driver in south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region recently drove his off-road vehicle into a street lamp, after quarreling with his wife on the phone. Surveillance footage shows that at 02:10 of April 5, an off-road vehicle smashed down a street in Heshan City. The vehicle kept going for several meters before fully stopping. After police arrived, they found fragments of vehicle and lamp scattered everywhere on the road. The front of the vehicle was distorted severely, with its windshield broken and two airbags deployed. The lamp was smashed into pieces. The driver narrowly escaped with no injuries. He first refused to admit he was the vehicle owner, but later confessed the whole thing. "According to his account, he was driving northward along Renmin Middle Road and quarreling with his wife on the phone. When he passed the accident site, he was so agitated that he jerked the steering wheel. The speed was high so the vehicle smashed into the side of the road, then the lamp and a stone seat before stopping," said Ling Wanxian, police officer of Traffic Police Brigade of Heshan Police Station.
More than 20 people have reportedly been injured and 16 hospitalized after a train going from Moscow to Brest collided with a commuter train. It happened after a man reportedly crossed the tracks, prompting the use of the emergency brakes. Four carriages were derailed, with one turning upside down and visibly wrecked.
One unsuspecting roller-coaster rider’s fun was intercepted when a pigeon collided with his neck in midair. At the opening of the Ferrari Land theme park at PortAventura Park in Spain, one man decided to take on the highest and fastest roller coast in Europe, which launches riders to 111 mph in just five seconds. Strapped into the ‘Red Force’ ride, a camera was set up to capture the whole thrilling experience. During the ride, which is the landmark experience at the new €100million park, the roller-coaster’s trajectory collided with that of a bird in flight. Taken aback – as you would be – the man quickly brushed off the stray bird, dashing him off his chest in a seemingly brutal moment of panic. The bird fell sideways to reveal a rather ominous blood splatter, which pretty much confirms the bird didn’t survive the collision. Bizarrely, the rider recovered quickly, after turning to his friend and sharing a few words on the incident. The same can probably not be said for that poor bird.
