BMW leaves road and crashes into Mini on garage forecourt

This is the aftermath of a serious car crash that saw a BMW leave the road at Helston, in Cornwall, south-west England, careen across a junction and crash into a £11,000 Mini Cooper parked on a garage forecourt. The force of the impact ripped the Mini's bonnet open, rolled a massive granite boulder and scattered grass and earth clods over other cars for sale on the forecourt. Local news services quoted the police as saying that no one was hurt in the incident and that “the driver is currently assisting police with enquiries around the incident.” The incident took place on February 18.

Elephant causes traffic chaos after stopping trucks to steal food

This is the astonishing moment a wild elephant causes traffic chaos after raiding passing trucks - to steal bundles of sugar cane. The enormous beast was spotted after it wandered onto the busy highway in Chachoengsao, Thailand. Wildlife officials arrived but were powerless to control the brazen male jumbo as it plundered passing lorries in search of the freshly collected crop. The suitably full elephant finally trudged back off into the jungle two hours later at around 5pm having stopped more than 12 different vehicles, hungrily sniffing out the sweet treats. Onlooker Arnie Banpho said: ''He was a big elephant so nobody was brave enough to get near him and push him back into the trees. ''Cars were driving very slowly passed him and there were big queues while they waited for him.'' Kovit Boonphanuk, Head of Wild Elephant Care at the Khao Ang Rue Nai mountains, said: ''The elephants in this area are friendly and never harm anyone. He only wanted some food. ''Truck drivers who use the road regularly are familiar with elephants and take extra care but this was an unusual occasion when the animal stopped many vehicles and would not leave. ''We would like to remind anyone who encounters elephants while in their vehicles to stay well back, do not use the car horn and do not shout at them. ''Let the elephants continue what they are doing, or they may become angry. Elephants often travel in herds and there may be others nearby.''

In the video, filmed in February 2017, a player slides down the ice toward curling rings at the other end. The origins of human curling are unknown.

Snowmobile rider gets taken out by own sled

A snowmobile rider got wiped out by his own vehicle - before it went careering down the slope and crashed into a tree in Montana earlier this month. In the video, filmed in West Yellowstone, the hapless rider is trying to make it back to his sled after falling off when it slides downhill and hits him.

"Then Nathan - aka the Snake - was working on getting his turned upright (when) the roll happened. "It completely levelled him and drove itself downhill into small pines, causing major front-end damage." According to an official local tourism site, winter brings an average annual snowfall of 143 inches

Indian man ends up with two hearts after surgery

+++CLIENTS PLEASE NOTE: EXTREMELY GRAPHIC CONTENT+++ A 56-year-old man received a life-saving cardiac surgery but ended up with two beating hearts inside his chest. The man, suffering from end-stage heart failure, had been admitted to Apollo hospital in the South Indian city of Hyderabad, to undergo a heart transplant surgery. When a heart of a brain dead 17-year-old donor became available on February 10, Apollo surgeons realised that it was too small for the recipient. “The donor heart was of normal fist-size. The recipient’s heart was the size of a small football,” Dr A.G. Krishna Gokhale said. There was no time to wait for another donor as the patient was in a critical condition. So, the doctors decided to keep the old heart rather than replace it. They cut away a part of the patient pericardium and squeezed the new heart between the right lung and the original heart in a procedure that lasted seven hours. The new heart has been connected to the diseased heart, which continues to be in its place. Both the hearts beat complementing each other to ensure a smooth blood circulation in the body. “The surgery, heterotopic or piggyback heart transplant, is rare and worldwide only about 150 such procedures have ever been reported,” said Dr Gokhale. The patient has recovered satisfactorily and the doctors say he will have to keep a close watch on his heart as there could be new complexities.

Who let the dogs out! Welcome to the British Siberian husky racing championships

One normally associates Husky dog racing with snow-covered landscapes, yet the UK lead the world in what is known as ‘on dry-land mushing’. And there is no better place to see one of the fastest-growing dog sports in the world than the British Siberian Husky Dog Championship. Teams of dogs and their owners, drivers and trainers congregate at various forest venues throughout the short winter season (Mid- November to early March) to compete for the UK championship title. The first Siberian Husky dogs came to Britain in the 1960s, but the first race was not until 1996. Since then, the sport has become more popular and evolved into a serious competition championship. These race meetings are held on trails throughout Britain. Each meeting has races with classes for two, three, four, six and eight dog teams of Siberian Huskies. This contest, at Elvedon Forest, was the penultimate in this year’s 2018 British championship. Since there is rarely snow in the UK, competitors race on what is known as a ‘Rigg’ - a 3 or 4 wheeled contraption resembling a trike. The dogs are harnessed to the Rigg and complete the course on a time trial. The championship is highly competitive, but the safety and welfare of the dogs and the drivers are paramount. So before racing can commence, each Rigg must pass scrutineering to ensure it is race worthy; that the steering and brakes are in good order. Each set of dogs race against the clock, 2 minutes divide each team. The forest circuits range in distance for the different teams and are also adjusted according to weather conditions on the day.

Plane makes emergency landing after engine catches fire4m30s

Plane makes emergency landing after engine catches fire

This is the terrifying moment passengers looked out of their plane window to see propellers not spinning - after an engine caught fire. The Nok Air twin-propeller aircraft carrying 84 people took off from Sakon Nakhon, Thailand, at 3.10pm but just ''two minutes'' later its engine was engulfed in flames. Hair-raising footage shows smoke still coming from the plane's engine charred black around the engines with the farmer's fields visible below at an altitude of around 5,000ft. Power to the engine was cut - leaving the Bombardier Dash 8 Q 400 to make a swift u-turn and perform an emergency landing at the airport it had just left. The co-pilot can be heard telling passengers that there is an ''engine failure'' and apologising for the inconvenience. It landed at around 3.25pm some 15 minutes after take-off. One passenger described how the aircraft ''shook slightly'' during the fire and feared that something ''much worse'' was about to happen. Fellow-flyer Wee Boonsena said: ''We had just taken off and about one or two minutes later suddenly there was fire coming out of the exhaust of the engine. ''This happened two times about 5,000ft high and it was a bit scary. ''But thanks to the training of the pilot and the professionalism of the crew it was handled safely. Nok Air confirmed that the plane made an unscheduled landing.

Canadian PM Justin Trudeau visits Indian wildlife sanctuary with family

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday visited an Indian wildlife sanctuary with his family. Trudeau was joined by his wife and their three children aged 2, 9 and 10 at the Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Centre in Mathura.

Wildlife SOS runs a bear rescue centre in Agra and an elephant rescue centre in Mathura. The Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Centre (ECCC) was established in 2010 in Mathura and provides critical medical treatment and lifetime care to 24 rescued elephants.

Rehabilitated wild monkey gets huge hug from family when released58s

Rehabilitated wild monkey gets huge hug from family when released

This is the touching moment a monkey was given a huge hug by its family after it was released back into the wild. The clip, which was filmed in Amanzimtoti, South Africa last week shows Tracy Rowles releasing a rehabilitated vervet monkey called Pearce. Last month, a student at Kingsway High School in Amanzimtoti, South Africa, spotted the young vervet monkey in need of help with a seriously injured leg. The student contacted Umsizi Vervet Rescue Centre, a rescue organisation run by Rowles. A team of volunteers went out as quickly as they could and, after hours of trying, eventually caught Pearce. Pearce’s family members were furious, fearing the team was going to hurt the young monkey. Pearce was taken to the vet and then to the rescue centre to recover. Three weeks later and it was time for him to be released, but finding Pearce's family was far from easy. Vervet monkeys roam for many miles. However, after hours of searching, the team eventually located them sitting on top of a building on some school football fields. When Rowles opened the cage, Pearce hopped out and climbed the building on which his family were sitting. Recognising him at once, a family member hauled him onto the roof where he was embraced warmly by his troop, who had perhaps feared they'd never see him again.
