A guy in Australia went skydiving back in November, and had a SEIZURE in mid-air. And he just posted the footage on YouTube.
It happened at about 9,000 feet, and his instructor managed to get to him around 4,000 feet and pull his chute. Otherwise he would have died. ( They jump at :45, and he starts having a seizure at 1:06.)
A reporter in Chattanooga, Tennessee named Caitlyn Jones was on the side of the highway, talking about how bad the roads were Wednesday night . . . when a truck crashed into a guardrail about 50 feet behind her. It happens at 1:20.
38-year-old bowler Hakim Emmanuel became just the 26th bowler in history to roll a USBC-approved 900 series, throwing an incredible 36 consecutive strikes last week in Massachusetts. Emmanuel had never thrown a perfect game in his career and had a 217 average in his league, but after notching the first 300 he remained perfect for the rest of the night.
The Mayville Police Department is currently investigating a traffic accident that occurred at Mountin's Piggly Wiggly, 1440 Horicon St., on Friday.
A 92-year-old guy in Wisconsin crashed into NINE CARS on his way out of a parking lot on Friday. He told police that his foot got stuck on the gas, and he just panicked. Which doesn't really make sense, since he stopped in the middle and went into reverse.
It's not clear if he'll lose his license, but he's not facing any charges. Luckily no one was hurt.

A Weatherman Got Way Too Excited About Lighting During a Snowstorm
Jim Cantore from The Weather Channel was in Plymouth, Massachusetts over the weekend, to report on the snowstorm. And he got WAY too excited about some LIGHTNING during the storm.
There were a total of six lightning strikes, and he went nuts every single time. It's so over the top, he was clearly trying to go 'viral.' Because it's just not that exciting. He also described the storm by saying the area was, quote, "getting absolutely PUKED on."
