This is the terrifying moment surfer Marcelo Luna is battered by a massive wave after failing to get on a jet ski with his teammate. Drone footage shows Luna successfully riding a huge wave during a big swell off Praia do Norte in Nazare, Portugal.

Indonesian toddler smokes 40 cigarettes a day3m54s

Indonesian toddler smokes 40 cigarettes a day

This chain-smoking toddler has developed an insatiable habit - and puffs through 40 cigarettes a day. Two-year-old Rapi Ananda Pamungkas started by picking up used butts outside his mum's market stall in Sukabumi, Indonesia. But within days he was hooked - and would constantly pester passing shoppers to give him cigarettes. The adults initially found the youngster's demands endearing and plied him with cigarettes while laughing as he lit up. But Rapi - nicknamed Rap - soon started becoming aggressive and throwing tantrums when he couldn't get his beloved ''meroko'', the local term for cigarettes. Rapi's mother, Maryati, 35, admitted on Monday (13/08) that she buys two packs of cigarettes a day for the boy to stop him from going ''beserk''. She said: ''My child is used to smoking while drinking coffee and eating cake. ''He has been smoking every day for around two months. If I don't give him a cigarette, my child goes berserk.'' Maryati said that Rapi started around two months ago by collecting cigarette butts scattered on the road which older lads lit for him. After that, he demanded cigarettes from passing adults and his parents who run a food stall, which also sells cigarettes. The mother said that it had been difficult to ban her child from smoking because he will ''cry all day'' if he can't smoke. Maryati added: ''If Rapi doesn't get cigarettes he cannot sleep. He will start rampaging and crying. It's expensive, because we have to buy them for him. He likes to do it all day. He can smoke about 40 every day.'' Rapi's father, Misbahudin, 40, said he also smokes but doesn't know why his child started the habit. He added: ''I cannot say no to him when he asks for a cigarette. I don’t even smoke that often. I only smoke at work. When my son smokes he likes to have a cup of mochaccino.'' The parents said they will take the toddler to see a doctor to try and kick his smoking habit. Indonesia has one of the highest numbers of smokers per population in the world and a growing problem of child smokers. Around nine percent of under 18s smoke regularly. In 2010, the two-year-old boy Aldi Rizal achieved notoriety after it emerged he also would smoke two packets a day, with footage showing him happily smoking cigarettes.

This is the shocking moment a man tries to snatch a little girl as she walks with her mother. CCTV footage from Neihu district in Taiwanese capital Taipei shows the mum walking her seven-year-old daughter home from school when the man struck. The suspect Chou, 33, who later claimed it was a case of mistaken identity, can be seen standing outside a restaurant when he spots the mother and daughter, and suddenly reaches out his arm to grab the child’s rucksack. The girl appears to scream and her mother does too, with the parent desperately trying to pull her daughter away from the man, who refuses to let go of the schoolgirl’s bag. The girl is lifted into the air and the two grown-ups then involved in a game of "human tug-of-war", reports described. Restaurant staff and a number of passers-by came to the mother’s aid and Chou eventually let go and walked away from the area. Wu and her daughter were both shaken by the incident but not injured, police from Dahu Precinct said. They said the suspect claimed he mistook the mother and child for someone else, the police added without elaborating. Authorities investigating the incident revealed Chou to be a licensed lifeguard working as an instructor at a nearby public swimming pool.

Hyenas relentlessly harass lions until they give up their kill

Hyenas relentlessly harassed two lions until they gave up their kill in Kruger National Park in South Africa on July 12. “We arrived at a watering hole where a pride of lions killed a buffalo two days earlier,” the filmer explained. “There were only two female lions still at the carcass. There wasn’t much left of the carcass and the lions had been keeping the pestering hyenas at bay.” “The two lionesses were surrounded by over 20 hyenas and clearly outnumbered,” the filmer continued. “The rest of the lion pride already gave up and moved away from the action.” “The hyenas were harassing the lionesses with their mock charges accompanied by their noisy giggles, yelling and whines,” the filmer said. “Suddenly, one lioness had enough, jumped up and charged towards the scavengers furiously while growling nonstop. The lioness eventually realized that she was risking her life and suddenly decided to turn back and run towards the other lions.” “Immediately, the hyenas went and claimed the leftovers of the kill,” the filmer said. “One lioness roared one last time before the lions finally decided to turn around and let the hyenas take over the remains of their kill.”

This is the moment a 'ghost' appears to walk through oncoming traffic before later appearing in front of a grocery store.  The male apparition was picked up on CCTV cameras outside a shop in Pangasinan, Philippines, on June 20 at 2pm.  Surveillance footage from the same store shows a similar figure emerge 13 hours later on the same day as it lurks ominously next to a delivery man.  The spooky sightings have baffled staff at the shop and even security guards have been alarmed by it.  Michael Forto said: ''I couldn't believe my eyes. I thought these things only happen on television. It seems that the shadow is looking at the delivery guy.''  The grocery mini-mart is located in front of the town plaza and locals believe the apparition is the spirit of somebody with a grudge.  Jenny Renalto, who works at a shop near to where the ghost was captured on film, said: ''Now I'm scared to walk near this area.

It leaves during the night, but comes back to sleep during the day. ''It has been doing this for 12 years. He is very loyal. I don't know if all bats are like this.

Thai hero rescues tourists washed away by flash flood

Dramatic footage captured the moment two tourists were washed away by a flash flood before a brave onlooker leaps into the water to save them. The two men were 'tubing' at a country park in Nakhon Nayok, Thailand, yesterday (August 13) when the heavens opened. A sudden deluge of water swept them away downstream before they desperately clung to a low hanging branch. Park worker, Khun Nalon, 40, was then seen plunging into the water on an inflatable ring to paddle after the stricken pair. He caught up with them further downstream and helped to drag them to the shore. Speaking after, Nalon said: ''I saw the men and was hoping they could hold onto the tree but then they let go. ''The water is very dangerous so they were not safe. I could not leave them. I am a good swimmer so I jumped in to help them.'' The Khao Yai National Park where the rescue happened is a popular nature reserve which was packed with locals who had the day off for a national holiday celebrating the country's annual Mother's Day. Sudden monsoon downpours caused the streams to burst their banks - sending tonnes of water spilling over. Hundreds of visitors were stranded in a resort inside the sprawling park with water levels too high for them to leave. They had to wait until evening when the water had subsided. Park official Wichai Pornleesaengsuwan said the flash flood was caused by heavy rainfall coming down from the mountains. He said: ''This is the worst flooding I have seen here for ten years. We are trying to ensure that everybody is safe and there are no injuries.''
