Cable cars can be fun, unless you get stuck on one for about four hours. Skiiers found themselves in that exact situation when the cable cars in Kuzbass, Russia stopped working. Rescuers were able to get everyone down safely but it took several hours.
Next, a car lost control and went straight into a canal in China. Firefighters were on the scene in moments with one of them leaping into the water to rescue the driver, still submerged in the front seat. She was rescued and fortunately suffered serious injuries.
