Gang of sharks comes way too close to divers

Caribbean reef sharks are an exciting sight for divers, although they are intimidating enough to raise the hairs on the back of the neck of even the most adventurous. When these reef sharks appeared on a dive in Belize though, they brought a pair of bull sharks, one of the most aggressive and unpredictable of the shark species. They look similar to Caribbean reef sharks, but they are bulkier and have a very different nature. What started as a quiet dive became more thrilling than these divers expected. The sharks passed close enough to give a very clear view of their cold eyes and impressive teeth. The truth is that shark attacks are rare, even in the case of bull sharks, and if the divers remain calm, stay together and stay vertical, their chance of experiencing a serious problem is very small. Even though they know this to be true, the divers can be seen moving closer together and instinctively pulling their feet and hands in closer. The sharks are almost ten feet long, always hungry and always curious. They have no hesitation about approaching and even swimming among the divers. They may have been looking for a free meal because sharks have learned that scuba divers often spear lionfish, an invasive species that divers are committed to culling for the benefit of the reef. It would be dangerous to spear any fish in the presence of hungry sharks, as it would encourage feeding behavior and competition among the sharks which would make them much more likely to bite a diver. Divers also know that there is a fine line between curiosity and aggression and that improper behavior will have serious consequences. The divers in this video all surfaced without any incidents, but they were all surprised to have been greeted by the bull sharks. This dive took place on a wall near the famous Blue Hole near San Pedro, Belize. Reef sharks are a relatively common sight but it is quite rare to see bull sharks swimming so close to scuba divers.

Angry Yellowstone Bison Use Road As Runway Causing Traffic Jam1m18s

Angry Yellowstone Bison Use Road As Runway Causing Traffic Jam

You won't believe Jan and Tanuja's crazy encounter with two male bison while they were driving through Yellowstone. Tourists find themselves in massive traffic jam of bison, but luckily nobody was harmed. This tense standoff could have ended much worse! Traffic jams are one of the most common excuses for being late, and even though a bison-induced traffic jam may sound like a lie, it is sometimes the truth. Watch how determined these two male bison are to make their way across the street, causing drivers to hit their brakes and stop. Video shows several cars caught in a traffic jam, having stopped on the middle of the road after the bison decided to use the road as their runway! People stayed in their vehicles, which was probably a good decision given the numerous people who have been injured after getting too close to these large animals. While bison herds aren’t exactly the most common roadblock, they block traffic more than you would think, especially around Wyoming’s Yellowstone National Park. No use in blowing your horns in these kinds of jams. The bison will let you know when you can go, and that is after they are done with their show! Nearly 5,000 bison, the nation’s largest bison population on public land, roam freely inside Yellowstone National Park and often block the road. Footage clearly shows bison running alongside the road and ahead of the vehicle, where they slow down to a walk. Luckily, after they were done flaunting their large bulky bodies, they branched off into the wilderness. Yellowstone is the only place in the United States where bison (Bison bison) have lived continuously since prehistoric times and are somehow the gem of the place!

Heavy Winds Send Massive Grain Bin Rolling Across Highway37s

Heavy Winds Send Massive Grain Bin Rolling Across Highway

A windstorm was wreaking havoc through several parts of southeast Alberta on October 18, as a low-pressure system moved through the Canadian province. Power was out in several areas of the province and authorities received reports of several semi-trucks being rolled over, as well as two train derailments, as winds of up to 80 miles per hour swept the province. The strong winds also fueled the wildfires burning through southern Alberta, which have forced mass evacuation of residents in the affected areas and caused many communities to declare a state of emergency. In this video, what appears to be a grain bin can be seen rolling across a road outside Provost, Alberta, Canada, obviously torn out of it’s foundations in a nearby farm. Finding one rolling across the highway in front of you isn’t actually the worst thing that can happen with these agricultural mainstays: on certain occasions, they explode. When highly-combustible grain dust builds up in the tubes, all it takes is a little bit of friction or static electricity to spark an explosion. Now that is something you do not get to see everyday. While the silo can be seen rolling right between the cars travelling in opposite directions on the road, it just keeps rolling towards the field on the other side of the road, not causing any noticeable damage. It is unknown whether it has been returned to its owner. Credit: Facebook/Kyle Kostiuk via Storyful

Construction Site Workers Escape Injury In The Nick Of Time25s

Construction Site Workers Escape Injury In The Nick Of Time

We all know there is always risks when you work in a place such as a construction site. Having that in mind, we can all agree that this is a bit over the top. Here we have quite the scary situation where out of the blue fall a dozen two by fours from the top floor of the building. As soon as the first person notices they start running away from the wreckage. For most of the guys it turns out to be for the better while one of them did not get that lucky. As one of them starts running it appears that he runs straight into the board that is falling with a crazy speed towards the ground. The board lands right in front of him, tripping him to the ground and probably twisting his ankle in the process. Fellow construction workers run to his aid, but that man is lucky to be alive. One wrong step and that plank could have landed on his head, causing a far more serious injury. Thankfully, it has been reported that he is now in good health aside of the board landing right on his head. He is never going to forget how lucky he was in this situation. This is just another proof that helmets are a must at construction sites. Good on this guy for following safety precautions!

Car on fire causes major traffic jam1m19s

Car on fire causes major traffic jam

After a day scuba diving at Porteau Cover Provincial Park, the cameraman and his wife were minutes out of the area when they came across a traffic jam and noticed billowing black smoke in the near distance. Hearing sirens in the distance, Brent continued to shuffle through traffic to get closer to the front of the line as he knew this was going to be a time consuming incident. Once near the front of the stopped traffic, Brent got out and began recording as the firefighters tackled the blaze. Being in a rural area, the firefighters of Britannia Beach are volunteers, which meant approximately a 20 minute arrival time from the time of the 911 call. Once they arrived they sprung into action and got the gear all ready and began fighting the 2 fires. The mini one being the vehicle, and once that was under control a second group of firefighters tackled the grass fire beside the highway.

Motorcycle rider bails at the last second to avoid collision1m16s

Motorcycle rider bails at the last second to avoid collision

It's a huge responsibility to ride a motorcycle. You may fit easier in traffic and getting to your destination can be faster, but without the right equipment and steadfast awareness of your fast-changing surroundings, riding the bike can take a serious toll on your health, even your life. This footage is quite disturbing, so be advised! One motorcycle rider in Novosibirsk, Russia manages to avoid a near-death experience on the highway at the last second after colliding head on with a truck taking a left turn. He swerves as he sees the truck entering the lane, but is unable to avoid it and falls on the road, before losing the bike and letting it crash and fly off the ground after hitting the rear of the truck! As all traffic stops to avoid further damage, the biker manages to get up, check himself and his bike and after assessing the damage, or seemingly lack thereof, get back on and continues with his journey. Thanks to all drivers who share these disturbing footage's, so that we might learn from the mistakes of other traffic participants. Be mindful of everyone on the road!

Drone almost swallowed up by Lake Berryessa glory hole4m28s

Drone almost swallowed up by Lake Berryessa glory hole

Lake Berryessa is the largest lake in Napa County, California. This reservoir in the Vaca Mountains is formed by the Monticello Dam, which provides water and hydroelectricity to the North Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area. Check out this drone that hovers at approximately 1,000 feet above Lake Berryessa and then descends into the famous glory hole and almost gets lost forever. Our guess is that all the water draining into the spillway created a sort of vacuum that made the drone unstable the further it goes down. What a close call! It takes some real skill to be able to get a drone that close to the glory hole without falling in. What a spectacular sight though, isn't it? Check out this close call with a drone!

Angry Lion Attacks Safari Car In India1m41s

Angry Lion Attacks Safari Car In India

This blood-chilling footage shows the moment a ferocious lion tried to topple a safari car in an Indian wildlife park. The gripping video shows two lions attacking the car in which a group of tourists was travelling. The video of the incident was captured by a driver, who was driving a safari bus in Bannerghatta Biological Park in Karnataka, India. One of the lions is seen pouncing on the car and trying to bite off the rear glass while the other lion stands near the front wheel. The shocked cries of the panicked tourists are clearly audible in the video. But the quick witted car safari driver managed to speed away before the situation got out of hand. This video keeps you on the edge of your seat as you wait to see what the lions will do next! The situation could have gotten way scarier is they had been driving an open safari vehicle. Good thing no one got hurt, as this could have been a very serious incident! Although lions seem cute out in the wild, it is best to avoid them as much as possible. Remember, wild animal safaris use covered cars for a reason. So if you ever have the chance to go on a trip like that, remember to keep calm inside whenever one of the residents decides to take a whiff at the safari car's insides. **Please contact video@catersnews.com to licence this content** Company Information: Caters Clips is owned and operated by Caters News Agency Ltd, an international multimedia content provider.

Circling sharks aggressively bump into diver1m20s

Circling sharks aggressively bump into diver

Divers must complete a 3 minute safety stop after a dive, hanging suspended at 20 feet while they expel nitrogen that builds up while they are at depth. If they ascend too quickly they will be in serious danger. These divers were shocked to see a 9 foot shark suddenly appear and approach them from below. It was joined by six other large sharks. They moved in and around the divers, with one of them bumping its nose in the diver's groin. They made repeated passes and sudden approaches. In such close encounters, curiosity can quickly turn to feeding aggression. While shark attacks are extremely rare, these divers were relieved to reach the boat without injury.

Wingsuit proximity flight comes inches to hitting cliff1m14s

Wingsuit proximity flight comes inches to hitting cliff

Check out this POV footage of some near-fatal wingsuit proximity flying in Le Brévent, France. These daredevils come INCHES to the cliff walls, trees and terrain. The National Geographic did an exploration on the reason these flyers meet their death during this extreme activity, after a video of a BASE jumper meeting his own death surfaced on the Internet. This man’s real name was Armin Schmieder, an Italian who lived in Freiburg, Germany. He was a 28-year-old father to a young child. BASE is an acronym standing for the types of objects participants may leap from: Buildings, Antennas, bridges—aka, “Spans"—and the Earth itself, in the form of cliffs. Last year was the deadliest on BASE record. “The simple truth is that wingsuit BASE jumpers don’t know what they are getting into, don’t know how to practice the sport safely, and don’t even know enough to know how little they know." is written in the NG article. Le Brévent is a mountain of Haute-Savoie, France, first opened in 2012. However, following a series of accidents within a short amount of time, it was closed by local authorities. It remains one of the most technical exits in the world, and for good reason!

Close encounter with Humpback whale and baby42s

Close encounter with Humpback whale and baby

Found in oceans and seas around the world, humpback whales typically migrate up to 25,000 km (16,000 mi) each year. Humpbacks feed in polar waters, and migrate to tropical or subtropical waters to breed and give birth when they fast and live off their fat reserves. Their diet consists mostly of krill and small fish. Humpbacks have a diverse repertoire of feeding methods, including the bubble net technique. Like other large whales, the humpback was a target for the whaling industry. Once hunted to the brink of extinction, its population fell by an estimated 90% before a 1966 moratorium. While stocks have partially recovered, entanglement in fishing gear, collisions with ships and noise pollution continue to impact the population of 80,000. In the deep blue waters of the Pacific Ocean off the Tonga coast, a baby whale swam straight towards this scuba diver. As it did, he realized to his horror that he was in danger as he was now inadvertently between the baby whale and its massive 15 meter, 35 ton mother. Luckily, he managed to escape unharmed, but did manage to capture footage of the incredible up-close encounter.
