This is the terrifying moment a United Airlines plane's engine started spitting flames after a bird strike mid-flight. The Miami-bound flight was forced to turn back to Chicago's O'Hare Airport shortly after takeoff at around 8.30am on Thursday. A passenger sitting in a window seat filmed as the flames shot out from the engine. 'What to do when your plane engine blows and bursts fire? Thank the pilot for landing and have a beer,' he said. The plane turned around and the passengers were put on another plane around two hours later. A United Airlines spokesman said the crew successfully shut off on engine after the bird flew into it and landed the plane using the other one. The airline is also offering passengers compensation. 'The crew opted to shut down one of the engines following reports of a bird strike. 'We swapped aircrafts and the flight re-departed at about 10.40 local time. We're reaching out to customers to offer them compensation,' a spokesman told DailyMail.com. While there is little to prevent damage once birds strike, it said the company was investigating ways to stop them from flying in to the engine in the first place.
The driver of the truck that miraculously avoided plowing into the back of a school bus carrying 20 school girls is being hailed a hero after his quick thinking prevented a catastrophic pile up on Sydney's M5 motorway. Daniel O'Sullivan, who was driving just metres behind the truck, has revealed his initial panic when spotting the bus load of school children suddenly pull in front of the 22 tonne semitrailer that was travelling at 100km/h. 'I expected carnage on the road, I expected a catastrophic event,' he revealed to 9 News. 'I could observe children in the bus, I expected they'd be severely injured if not killed.' The witness also pointed out that it appeared as if the bus driver had no intention to stop the bus following the incident. 'I put my car in front of the bus and slowed him down and a truck driver observed what i was doing and we herded him into the help point area,' he added. Kazem Afkhamisaddoghi has since apologised for the frightening near-miss at around 8am on Thursday morning. CCTV footage released by police shows the bus allegedly pulling out in front of a semi-trailer on the busy motorway at Hammondville during the Thursday morning school run. The truck driver, Daryl Wilson brakes heavily causing his vehicle to jack-knife in order to avoid a collision. The driver told 7NEWS: 'I'm very, very sorry about this. 'I don't know how I can to say it because my English language is not very good and I can't say all the words in my heart.' The 60-year-old also praised the quick-thinking of the truck driver. A student on the bus spoke to Daily Mail Australia about the horrifying near-crash. 'We were going to West Hoxton for an AFL gala day. We were on the M5 to begin with and then the bus pulled off to the side,' she said. 'He was halfway into the furthermost lane and then realised that was the wrong lane to be in so he decided to go back onto the M5.

Shocking footage has captured the moment a truck driver jumped out of his cab into the highway after his vehicle burst into flames. Video obtained by Denver news station KDVR-TV shows the man scrambling away from the burning tanker as traffic speeds by in Greenwood Village, Colorado. Two Good Samaritan construction workers were then seen running toward him and helping him away from the blaze as smoke billowed into the air. Another witness told KMGH-TV that the driver's leg was on fire. The fire quickly engulfed the truck and sent a large plume of black smoke billowing into the sky. Firefighters sprayed foam on it and across both sides of Interstate 25 about 12 miles - 19 kilometers - south of downtown Denver. Investigators say the truck lost a tire and crashed into the concrete barrier median - but it's not clear if that ignited the fire. The tanker smoldered along the retaining wall, separating northbound from southbound lanes on Interstate 25. The highway was also closed along with a nearby light rail station, forcing motorists to seek other routes through Denver's busy southeast corridor. Shailen Bhatt, executive director of the Colorado Department of Transportation, said workers will experience 'a pretty snarled p.m. commute' Wednesday. All northbound lanes near the Denver Tech Center, a group of corporate buildings that line the interstate, were expected to stay closed through the evening. Crews - who worked throughout Wednesday night - have opened some southbound lanes, and Bhatt said he was 'cautiously optimistic' that all lanes of the interstate will be open by Thursday morning's commute. 'Crews have begun milling the northbound lanes to evaluate the maximum depth of damage to the asphalt. 'At this time, there is not an estimated time of reopening of the northbound lanes,' a statement from CDOT said on Wednesday night. The hospital, Swedish Medical Center, where the driver is being treated told DailyMail.com it will release a statement but the driver's condition was confidential.

A body was found in a California river on Monday, 18 days after a local teen was filmed being swept away by its icy currents. Raymond Cabalfin Jr, 19, was seen leaping into the American River with a female friend after they and their pals hiked the Lake Clementine Trail near Auburn, 30 miles outside Sacramento. She was able to climb out, but Cabalfin was seen shouting for help as he was quickly pulled away by the river, the Sacramento Bee reported. The body, which has not yet been confirmed to be Cabalfin, was spotted in the water near the Robie Point hiking area at around 3pm on Monday. It had been seen by a hiker around three miles downstream of where Cabalfin disappeared, near the Robie Point hiking area. A California Highway Patrol helicopter confirmed that it was a corpse, and authorities then retrieved it from the water. 'The body that was recovered today was consistent with a body that had been submerged in the water for some time,' Scott Liske, the supervising ranger for the Auburn State Recreation Area, said. 'It was obvious that this body did not enter the water in the last 24 hours.' Cabalfin's family has been notified, but the body is too badly decomposed to be identified by them. Instead, identification must be made by the coroner's office. There was no obvious trauma to the body, authorities said. Neither Cabalfin nor his friend were wearing life jackets or other flotation devices when they leaped into the water. But even if they had, the coldness of the water, coupled with the large volume and fast currents, would have posed a serious danger. 'With multiple years of drought, a lot of visitors to the river forgot what it's like with real runoff, Liske said. 'When you jump into the cold water, it's a shock to the system. 'This is all of the rivers this year from Northern California to Central California. They are all charged with fast cold water. We are urging everyone to stay alive by staying out.' He added: 'But if you want to go into the water, wear a life jacket,' Cabalfin's family had opened a GoFundMe page in order to pay for private searches; as of Tuesday it had raised $5,560. Cabalfin exercised at a local gym and was in 'really good shape,' Evan Alexander, the boyfriend of Cabalfin's older sister, told the Sacramento Bee. 'He grew up in a traditional Asian family and was very sheltered,' Alexander added, saying he hoped to be a nurse or doctor one day. He also said that officials had bungled the investigation. 'Parents were not notified by any agencies about the incident,' he said. 'They only heard about it from his friend who was there when he was swept away.'
A passer-by saved a female driver who accidentally backed her car into a river last Thursday in Taicang city, east China's Jiangsu Province. Surveillance footage shows a white car backing into a parking lot in an automotive parts factory but then suddenly reversing at high speed through a fence stretching along the river. The river water was more than three meters deep and the car was sinking. The driver climbed out of the car's sunroof and called for help. An employee of the factory named Li Jiabo was the first to come to her rescue. A weak swimmer, Li not only failed to save the driver but also got himself into danger. At that time, a passer-by across the river jumped into the water to help them. The young man first dragged the exhausted Li onto the river bank then saved the driver with the help of the crowd. Local police identified the Good Samaritan as Huo Junwei, 27, and said they hoped to offer him an award.
