A young male lion in South Africa discovered that it had taken on more than it could chew when a water buffalo flipped the lion several feet into the air in a daring attempt to rescue a fallen comrade. The captivating scene was captured in a video that has been watched more than 23 million times on YouTube.
During a training exercise, firefighters mistakenly pumped jet fuel instead of water onto a flaming mock-up of an airplane crash.
KING 5 obtained video that shows an enormous fireball erupted when the fuel hit the flames at the training site.
“When the firefighters put water on a fire that had been deliberately developed for training the fire got bigger instead of smaller,” said Bob Calkins of the State Patrol, which is investigating the incident.
Calkins said investigators believe that the academy’s oil/water separator – which recycles the water used for fire training exercises – did not correctly filter the jet fuel used for the exercise from the reclaimed water.
So crews filled their tanks with water tainted with jet fuel -– a combustible combination.
Calkins said an expert hired by WSP is investigating whether the 1990’s oil/water separator malfunctioned or whether academy employees did not operate it correctly.
A guy who does prank videos on YouTube has a new one, where he sits down next to people at the airport while they're talking loudly on their cell phone. Meanwhile, he's on HIS cell phone, but he starts responding to everything THEY say.
It takes most of the people 10 or 20 seconds to figure out what's going on. But then when they ask what he's doing, he acts like they're interrupting HIS call.
Two new animal videos are picking up some views on YouTube. One shows a rat trying to run down an UP escalator in the San Francisco subway. And he just can't quite get to the bottom. It goes well with the sad Beatles music in the background.
