What would've been a manly descent from a towering pine tree goes dramatically off-script when our adventurer runs afoul of some tasteful wooden signage on his way down! At least trees are
At least trees are kinda made for climbing—silly Stephen Wassung thinks parking meters are made for people too! Unfortunately, this particular meter was a couple of inches too tall for comfort. Legend has it Stephen's still numb today!
Although Jeff Rose deserves our congratulations for a race well-flown at the National Championship Air Races, he's also getting our condolences after his victorious "Reno Rabbit" accidentally slams into a competitor's plane at the end of a high-speed landing and cuts itself in half! Thankfully, Rose did not suffer any injuries.

This is NOT the PJ these cops were looking for... just a case of similar-looking cars. Whatever "PJ" did, it must have been pretty serious for one of these officers to almost immediately begin battering down Leon's car window! As glass flies, we can only imagine the shock our poor driver must have felt. The duo's temporary suspension probably came with little relief for innocent and traumatized Leon.
No word on the whereabouts of the real PJ.
Unless you're racing across a continent, speeding's a pretty time-inefficient risk. If you're late heading to work 15 minutes away, hitting 90mph on the freeway might only save you a minute or so... and only if you're not pulled over or wrecked! View Now

It's this nightmare situation (and Hollywood script) that has this suddenly claustrophobic groomsman going almost crazy in this stalled elevator while laughing friend Dustin Temesvary records.

Although there's no "Shirts versus Skins" football game being played in sight, this topless tourist seems like he's going long for an imaginary football pass on a mountain trail near Machu Picchu before one of the ancient Incan stones rolls! Even we think he's a goner until fellow tourists find the poor guy holding on for dear life from several miraculously placed trees just a few feet below the edge of the trail.

Even when you've got an airplane between you and the "Wild Blue Yonder", the brute strength and force of nature is enough to toss you around! But in extreme open-air sports like paragliding and hang gliding, it's just you and your understanding of weather versus temperamental Mother Nature.
These three adventurers around the globe get themselves in sink-or-swim situations but thankfully, walk away from these midair crises older, wiser, and with some scrapes to prove it!
Some fans can be extremely upset after a game, win or lose. In this video, Rangers Football Club fans destroyed restrooms at their rival team's stadium, Celtic Park in Scotland. Police are investigating the incident following the Old Firm Scottish league derby.
More rowdy sports fans took to the streets after Manchester City beat Manchester United. The game drew more than 70,000 fans but two men squaring off on the street started a brawl involving more than a dozen people. View Now

You don't need to be a jumpmaster to understand a parachute only does its job (keeping you alive) if it's attached to you. An overeager and oblivious novice BASE jumper somehow overlooks this life-saving and completely elementary fact when he crashes Chris Mcdougall's jumping class on a Croatian bridge and nearly kills himself!

But besides the weird outcome, this high-speed ride must have been terrifying for whoever was inside!
If snakes could scream, this bizarre video would be a case where it would be appropriate. Not only does this persistent Aussie reptile manage to hold on, it even crawls up the windshield and tries to join the panicking humans inside the car! View Now
With loveable representatives like Winnie-the-Pooh, Smokey Bear, and Baloo, bearkind is a wonderful (and necessary) member of nature. But when aggressive grizzlies try to snack on Kayla Furlotte's ducks... her Canadian family gives their uninvited guests a stern (and explicative-laced) send-off. View Now
We can't imagine what this deranged robber had in mind with those 10 white roses... but they certainly didn't merit beating an elderly Russian woman nearly senseless in her own flower shop!
Not surprisingly, we've got booze to blame for this dangerous brawl that sends glass, punches and even bodies flying in a spiteful hit-and-run convenience store alcohol dispute between violent customers and fed-up staff who refused to sell alcohol to this unruly trio.
Although the saying goes "an elephant never forgets", I think we'd all be kinder to animals if we knew just how much they remember! There's no mistaking the happiness and joy we see in the eyes of the nearly-drowned pooch pedestrians haul out of sewage during a Facebook Live broadcast in India. View Now
If you're not in a heavy off-road SUVs or sedan, wading into rushing waters is a death-wish or at least a long swim. We get the feeling that kind of nonchalant attitude is what landed this stranded Nepalese dude on his precarious waterfall perch in Kathmandu! Thankfully, he looks relieved when the military arrives to rescue him.
In an encore rafting performance, LycanOfSparta's back! But this time, the rescuer becomes the rescued when a scary rapid throws our hero over the side.
Those big green forest plants that make great firewood, log cabins and maple syrup can be a clueless woodsman's worst enemy. Even a team of lumberjacks-in-training with a 19-0 removal record runs into trouble when an ordinary-looking tree goes rogue. Although it seems like their "tried-and-true" method is more "tried-and-epically-failed", we'll give these guys from Exploring Alabama a pass because of their great overall record!
