Watch How This Witty Perp Escapes Police Car Through Garage Doors

It sounds like a scene from some satirical or adventure movie, but trust us on this, this is very much real. One very clever and resourceful perp decide to make a final run for it , after being brought to Porter County jail, when the policemen who brought him for booking left the cruiser door AND the garage door wide open. Sounds too good to be true, but we have the CCTV footage to prove it. A 25-year-old Michael Maldonado made the 100-meter-dash from the garage of Porter County jail in Indiana on Monday, March 26, when he noticed that the jail garage door took its sweet, sweet time closing down. Two squad cars arrived in the garage, one holding Maldonado, and park at the door leading to booking. The officers get out of their vehicles and move away, their backs turned on the perp in custody, knowing that he is safe in the locked car. If you take a closer look at the squad on the left, you may notice it shaking and some ruckus going on inside. A moment later, the driver’s side door opens and out comes Maldonado, shoeless and darting for the exit before the automatic door shuts down. It took the policemen a while to process what was happening. By the time they realized it, their perp was out and free, with a pair of glistening handcuffs to boot. The footage has been watched over 30,000 times in just one day, proving that yes, officers of the law are always comedy gold. The following morning, Porter County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Sgt. Jamie Erow confirmed a statement that Maldonado has been found and brought back into custody.

Police Officers Save Choking Baby Amidst A Busy Intersection1m26s

Police Officers Save Choking Baby Amidst A Busy Intersection

Officers Oklander and Sidders go into action after stopping to help a disabled motorist and quickly realizing a young two-month-old baby had been in trouble. The whole action then turns into a life-saving effort. Incredible police body cam video captures the moments Shaker Heights police officers saved a baby who was choking in a car parked in the middle of a busy intersection. The baby begins to choke while riding in the back seat. Her mom knows she has to get to her daughter quickly, so she stops the car in the middle of the street. She seems kind of frantic and doesn’t really know what to do. The baby starts choking on her milk which is coming out of her nose so she puts the hazards on and gets out of the car and sprints to the back seat to try and help her baby. And it is as if by hand of God two police officers come out of nowhere and help her with the back thrusts for her to breathe . It is a real miracle that the two Shaker Heights police officers just appear out of the blue right at the moment when the baby stops breathing. One of the officers takes the child and places her face down over his forearm, performing a version of the Heimlich maneuver commonly used for infants. After several swift blows to the baby’s back, the officers hear a cough. I can hear air moving,” the officer says. “She’s moving air. Okay, she’s breathing.” Then they pass the baby to the mother, who uses a nasal aspirator on the child. What an amazing job! Thank God for them because, if it wasn't for them, the mom would be probably still be out there doing CPR on her child. And is s a sigh of relief for the officers and for the mother, who knows how lucky she is.

Curious Emperor Penguins Take A Selfie Video In Antarctica 38s

Curious Emperor Penguins Take A Selfie Video In Antarctica

The selfie-snapping animals are at it again. Two emperor penguins in Antarctica captured a short video of themselves. The black and white flightless birds are filmed closely inspecting the equipment after stumbling over it in the Australian research station on the ice-covered continent. After coming across the camera which was left on the ice, the curious penguins inadvertently captured the selfie video. The penguins took the opportunity to check out their reflections and it didn’t take long for the naturally curious birds to seize the opportunity for a selfie. While the video at first shows a handful of penguins from a low vantage point, one bird soon waddles over to the camera and with a single impressive kick knocks it over. The penguin angles the screen to focus only on its face before being joined by a companion. Because everyone has that one friend, another penguin soon nudges its way into the frame. For about half a minute, the two chirp and cock their heads inquisitively at the screen, before perking up and shaking their heads (and bellies) repeatedly. Emperor penguins are native to Antarctica , with the emperor being the largest of the 18 penguin species. They’re also known to breed during the Antarctic winter when temperatures can drop down to -50C. The video isn’t a true “selfie” - the camera was recording when the birds approached it - but charmed viewers don’t seem to mind.

Nonchalant Mid-Air Conversations Between F-22 Pilots And Refueler3m27s

Nonchalant Mid-Air Conversations Between F-22 Pilots And Refueler

Did you know that there are approximately 5000 commercial airplanes in the sky at any given moment? Do you think that that’s impossible and that the sky couldn’t possibly fit that many at a time? Well, just think about the fact that beside the commercial planes carrying passengers and cargo , there are also military planes and other aircrafts crisscrossing the sky. It’s truly remarkable. Out of all of the modes of transportation, air transport requires the most amount of fuel. This is what makes it one of the greatest air pollutants in the world. But regardless of the damage it does, it is still the fastest way of getting from point A to point B. Sometimes the distance between these two points is greater than the fuel capacity of the aircraft and this is where tanker planes come into play. The tankers are larger aircrafts carrying fuel that can refuel smaller aircrafts mid flight either using a probe-and-drogue technique or a flying boom. The latter requires a boom operator, an aircrew member which is tasked with operating a long expandable metal arm that attaches to the receiving aircraft. The tanker’s flight duration depends on the crew fatigue and the fuel capacity in the tanker. The aerial refueling allows for longer flights as well as carrying bigger loads of cargo and personnel. This footage shows us some insight of the day-to-day adventures of the people on board of the tanker planes. Watch the refueling of F-22's and listen to some of the casual conversations between the In-Flight Refueler; Senior Airman Jordan Smith, deployed from Travis Air Force Base, and the F-22 pilots.

This Baby Octopus Just Hatched And Is Already A Master Of Disguise10s

This Baby Octopus Just Hatched And Is Already A Master Of Disguise

You have probably seen the birth of various aquatic animals. They are either live births, where the baby animal comes out of the mother and starts swimming right away or they develop in an egg sack and comes out a while later. But we have not seen the birth of a baby octopus, until now. In a curious video posted by the Virginia Aquarium on their Twitter feed, a baby Caribbean octopus, no bigger than the nail on your pinky finger, hatches from a bundle of eggs that look like a fragile bouquet. You will notice that right away it changed color, going from a milky white to a bright purple. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, since the Caribbean reef octopus is known to be a master of disguise. They use special muscles to open and close little sacs of pigment in their skin called chromatophores and this little guy was probably responding to the black tabletop beneath its tank. The mom of this baby octopus came to the aquarium six months prior to the babies hatching and when she said the eggs, they had already been fertilized. It turned out that this incredible species, no bigger than a softball, can store their partner’s sperm for up to 100 days. The survival rate of baby octopi is pretty low, sometimes only one or two will survive out of an entire clutch. But the team at the Virginia Aquarium plans on raising whatever babies do survive and exhibit them at the aquarium.

Historic Footage Shows Falcon Heavy's Side Boosters Landing Simultaneously

Space Exploration Technologies Corp., doing business as SpaceX, is a private American aerospace manufacturer and space transport services company headquartered in Hawthorne, California. It was founded in 2002 by entrepreneur Elon Musk with the goal of reducing space transportation costs and enabling the colonization of Mars. SpaceX has since developed the Falcon launch vehicle family and the Dragon spacecraft family, which both currently deliver payloads into Earth orbit. SpaceX's achievements include the first privately funded liquid-propellant rocket to reach orbit, Falcon 1 in 2008, the first privately funded company to successfully launch, orbit, and recover a spacecraft, Dragon in 2010, the first private company to send a spacecraft to the International Space Station, Dragon in 2012, the first propulsive landing for an orbital rocket, Falcon 9 in 2015, and the first reuse of an orbital rocket, Falcon 9 in 2017. As of March 2017, SpaceX has flown ten missions to the International Space Station under a cargo resupply contract. NASA also awarded SpaceX a further development contract in 2011 to develop and demonstrate a human-rated Dragon, which would be used to transport astronauts to the ISS and return them safely to Earth. Footage from SpaceX's first test launch of the Falcon Heavy rocket lift off on Feb. 6, 2018. Shortly afterward, two of its first-stage side boosters separated and landed back at Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Gloria. Check out the incredible sight! Credit to 'SpaceX'.

Adorable Nigerian Dwarf Goat Prances Around Enclosure49s

Adorable Nigerian Dwarf Goat Prances Around Enclosure

Dwarfism is not only seen in humans, but it can also be observed in other species. But unlike our kind, there are specific goat breeds that have naturally occurring dwarfism, such as the Nigerian dwarf goat, which is a miniature goat breed of West African ancestry. The original animals were transported from Africa on ships as food for captured carnivores (yikes!) being brought to zoos; the survivors were then maintained in herds at those zoos. Despite their not so happy history, these cutie pies are now popular as pets and as family milkers because they are very easy to maintain, and also they are very petite. Because of their high butterfat, they are also used to make cheese. This particular newborn Nigerian goat is a resident in the Oregon zoo, and he loves to spend his time jumping on stuff and overall being cute. This goat still doesn't have a handle on the basic motor skills, but despite being a newborn, this adorable goat will soon learn how to properly jump and prance around without falling. Nigerian goats are known for being very gentle and intelligent, and if their owners start bottle-feeding them from young age, they become even more connected. They are very popular pets, and understandably, have taken the Internet by storm. And judging from the cuteness of this little guy, they will soon take over the web and cats will finally have a worthy Internet opponent.

Penguin Casually Jumps Into Research Boat In Antarctica18s

Penguin Casually Jumps Into Research Boat In Antarctica

“Good afternoon, gentlemen. My name is Mr. Penguin and I would like to become part of your Australian Antarctic Division team.” We assume that is how this adorable encounter went, because we can’t think of a solid reason why a penguin would jump on a dinghy filled with scientists, who happen to be human! The footage shows the dinghy sitting still amind the ice in Antarctica, when all of a sudden a penguin literally flies out of the water and lands between the equipment, much to the entertainment of the dinghy’s occupants. The footage was captured by communications specialist Matthew McKay, who was travelling through sea ice at the time. The team was collecting water samples for a research project in Newcombe Bay, when they got the friendly visit. According to the team, this particular curious fellow is an Adélie penguin. The black and white flightless bird waddled along the edge of the boat, took a good survey of the bags of equipment stacked on top of each other at the bow, then turns around and goes right back in the freezing water! According to a spokesperson for the Australian Antarctic Division, a total of eight of these curious birds greeted the boat and its researchers. This team from the Australian Antarctic Division is working out of Casey research station in a territory of Antarctica claimed by Australia. It is the third Australian station to occupy a site on Vincennes Bay, and is located in the Windmill Islands, just outside the Antarctic Circle.

POV Footage Shows Firefighter Catching Child From Burning Building1m13s

POV Footage Shows Firefighter Catching Child From Burning Building

There can be no shred of doubt that you have to be incredibly courageous to be able to work as a firefighter. Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it; these men and women know what is at stake every time they go to a burning building and they still decide to put their lives at risk to save others. But if there are still people out there that still believe firefighting is one of the safest professions today, just show them this video. After watching it, no one will able to convince you out of the fact that firefighters are, in fact, heroes. The footage was released from Dekalb County Fire Department on Monday, January 15, showing a department building caught ablaze. Firefighters are running up and down the street, rushing to rescue everyone in the building before dousing it with water. The whole thing looks like a clip from a biopic; the point-of-view, the clarity of the footage, the severity of the flames, it all looks so surreal. The thing looks like it might just be CGI, for all we know. But then, something happens right before the viewers’ eyes, that will make you snap out into reality. As the firefighters were busy tending to the blazing tongues, tenants from the third floor are climbing down the firefighters’ ladder propped on their balcony. A father is climbing down one of the ladders, with his daughter in his arms. The firefighters are waiting below just in case something happens. And it does happen - the father tosses the 5-year-old daughter down into the arms of the strong hero, waiting on the ground. The firefighter, later identified as Captain Scott Stroup, runs away from the burning building , with the screaming child in his arms, to the EMTs waiting to accept the victims of the fire. To Captain Stroup and to all the firefighters involved, hats off. Credit to 'Dekalb County Fire Rescue Department / Local 1492'.
