When mom always warned you not to run with scissors, she was more right than we ever knew! A steamy shower, slippery floor, and an insidiously placed broom created the perfect storm that landed this unfortunate Chinese man in the ER impaled on what we all thought was a harmless tool! Thankfully, the sharp pole enters his shoulder instead of his chest so he'll leave with a scar instead of a more serious injury.
What wouldn't you do for a puppy in need?
Demolishing a sidewalk, for one! Inches of concrete slab couldn't get between a crowd of Argentine rescuers and an Alsatian somehow squeezed into a storm drain in Bahia Blanca. They literally rip off the entire "roof" before they're eventually able to haul the frightened but thankful pooch to safety. This feel-good story's silver lining is that he's up for adoption—if you can spring for the ticket to South America, of course!
Remember that catchy feel-good song about "the circle of life"? Two decades later we still can't get it out of our heads but now and again, we find some cringy wake-up calls to remind us this happy "circle" is a lot bloodier and NSFW in the wild. Thankfully, Momma Hippo arrives on-scene before hungry lions prematurely turn her baby into a meal! View Now
In a nightmare scene straight from a mom's horror movie, a pair of armed carjackers coolly confront a Mexican mom and her two kids in an SUV. Violent car thefts are a part of life in Ecatepec so our horrified mom knows she has to surrender her car keys and move fast if she's to save her family from these professional criminals! Tragically, police are nowhere in sight so the only help mom gets is from a conscientious bystander who helps her carry the kids to safety.
Even if you're a human, wandering onto an active racetrack is flirting with death! Can you imagine the terror this poor dog feels is when he realizes there's a turbocharged Bolivian rally car almost on top of him?
We almost stopped watching because we don't want to see the little guy get hurt... but then the unbelievable happens!
In a nightmare scene straight from a mom's horror movie, a Mexican mom and her two kids in an SUV are confronted by a pair of armed carjackers. Violent car thefts are a part of life in her town so our mom knows she has to move fast if she's to save her young ones from these professional criminals!
Although police are still catching up to these bad guys, they were quickly on the scene for these tech-hungry motorbike robbers on a busy highway and brought this high-speed chase to a crashing halt.
Cyclists racing in a championship in Bloomington, Illinois pile up in a terrifying crash. First, a rider fell down on a turn, next the rider with the point-of-view camera crashed, and then you can hear cyclists piled up behind those two. But, that is nowhere near the worst part of this accident. Once on the ground, the riders found thumbtacks on the course and stuck in their tires. Reportedly, 15 riders had tacks in their tires by the end of the race. Police are still investigating the incident. View Now
Boat races turned into a scary scene during the 2016 Lake of the Ozarks Shootout in Missouri. You can see one boat speeding down the water, before it flips over and rapidly starts to sink. The boat's driver was luckily tossed from the boat and not strapped into any seats. The driver was taken to a local hospital and is expected to be OK. View Now
Because so many police departments have turbocharged pursuit cars and special training, running from officers is pretty pointless. Unfortunately, enough rare cases surface where suspects do make a successful getaway that others will try their luck too! Sometimes it's nature to blame, others it's superior horsepower, but we can guarantee the added criminal charges and danger to everyone on the road aren't worth it!
We guess the only thing worse than falling to your death in a tangled skydive parachute is falling to your death in your backup "just in case" tangled parachute! Nevertheless, our falling friend is committed to untangling his twisted reserve lines because they're all that's left! Miraculously, he managed to untangle the backup cute and eventually land safely.
Like human kids, it looks like animal youngsters they don't need any help getting themselves into crazy situations! Because their bovine parents probably couldn't bail them out of their shenanigans, we're glad stand-in human babysitters were around to haul this underground cow to safety and give a little extra boost to a soggy sheep.
WARNING: Don't try these professional stunts at home!
Italian cyclist Michael Guerra might have just discovered a race-winning secret when he plays with the laws of physics to send him flying past traffic in this Dafne Fixed bike commercial! Could his aerodynamic plank position be the future of high-speed biking? View Now
When the situation is scary enough, road rage can sometimes get the best of us. This cyclist in London, England was in the bike lane doing what he's supposed to when a truck speeds by. Even though the truck was inches away from him, the cyclist wasn't injured. He just becomes very angry.
It's cases of aggressive driving that basically wrote these traffic tragedies and near-misses. Of course, narcissism behind the wheel is a lot easier to handle when you're in a tiny compact. Turn that Prius into a hulking semi, a pick-up truck and a heavy van, and suddenly you've got more lives to worry about than just yours when you drive in the wrong lane, zone out or aggressively pass!
The people involved in these accidents are so lucky that they're OK, they should probably buy a few lottery tickets. Terrifying footage shows an airplane that flipped over during landing at an airport in Brazil. Multiple people were on board, but everyone was OK. View Now
This video is incredible, but we would definitely never want to experience this next adventure in person. A lion charged at tourists on an up-close walking tour in South Africa's Kruger National Park. There were two licensed guides on the tour who both knew the area well. View Now
This scary video out of New York City shows a little girl climbing around on a fire escape. The man filming the video got the girls attention just before she crawled back inside her apartment. You can even see the girl climbing the stairs. It doesn't appear that the girl was injured. View Now
Even though time is money, sometimes you lose a lot more money if your "time-efficient" plan turns into an expensive mistake. Take this Russian freighter overloaded with thousands of tons of massive pipes on the rough seas. A couple heavy waves and these flimsy wire restraints pop like they were string! Now, a fortune in concrete pipes is sitting at the bottom of the arctic! View Now
It's a familiar location for daredevils, but 26-year-old Eirik Ulltang's jump qualifies as one of the most challenging. After two years of preparation, Eirik jumped across the peaks of Svolvaergeita in Norway on his bike. His team says this is the first time anyone has jumped with a bike on this mountain and we're not surprised. Eirik is a trial cyclist and had to climb 1,000 feet up the mountain with his bike on his back. Then, Eirik had to wait at the top until he was fully prepared to make the jump. View Now
