Two women in India put their lives in jeopardy by posing for a selfie in the middle of a raging river. After realizing they couldn't get out of the river by themselves, a group of rescuers spent almost two hours fighting against the powerful current to save them. The important thing is that those women are safe, but let's hope they learned something from this ordeal...

Kids Swim Across River To Get To School & RNLI Rescues Stranded Teens

It's amazing what a child will do to get to school every day and this small group of kids in Indonesia power through the rapids of a river for their education. While it appears they all have a system and no child is left to cross alone, this is surely a dangerous choice. They are in desperate need of a bridge! Meanwhile, in England, RNLI quickly came to the rescue of two teenagers taking shelter from the waves in a small cave near the Seafield House. However, this wasn't going to be an easy rescue as the waves were harsh and rocks close. With the use of an inflatable boat, they were able to get close enough to send a rescue member out on a safety line. View Now
Some Rivers Are Better Left Un-Crossed

Some Rivers Are Better Left Un-Crossed

Every time our roads flood we see unfortunate souls try their luck at Mother Nature's water casino and pay dearly. The 4wd 4x4 Australia rescue group had successfully crossed this small stream under normal conditions so the rising, angry waters didn't scare them as much as they should. One swept-away SUV later, we hope these older-but-wiser drivers have learned a sad but life-saving lesson! In a nutshell: Six inches of still water is enough to fry your steering ability and even stall your ride, leaving you trapped. One foot of water is enough to float your vehicle (say goodbye, folks!). Two feet of rushing water will sweep away any vehicle—from SUVs to sedans and even heavy lifted pickup trucks! Like the National Weather Service says, "Turn Around Don't Drown". View Now

Neighbors' Argument Gets Heated & Instant Karma For Thief
