'Ghost’ caught on camera walking through traffic in the Philippines

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. Every time I go past I can sense something scary.  ''I keep remembering what was on CCTV and the image of the man walking across the road comes into my head.''

US man films dolphins beaching themselves to feast on fish

A South Carolina resident captured this remarkable video of bottlenose dolphins beaching themselves to catch fish. The clip, which was captured at Folly Beach earlier this month, shows the marine mammals performing what is known as 'strand feeding.' Working together, the dolphins corral fish close to the shore and then charge, driving the fish and themselves out of the water. Once the fish are beached, the dolphins snap them up with ease before slipping back into the sea. "On this occasion, the dolphin actually waited for me to kick a beached fish back toward him before re-entering the water," said the filmer Ashley Wolfe.

Wild bat has been returning to the same house for 12 years

This wild bat has been returning to the same house for the last 12 years - earning himself the nickname Dracula. The nocturnal creature - which bears a sinister resemblance to the iconic Bram Stoker villain - first appeared in their front garden in 2006. They left small pieces of fruit out for the bat and it continued to return each night. Homeowner Reno Maratas, 50, even put up a small piece of wire and hanging food baskets at their home in Davao province. The bat goes hunting each night then returns every morning to sleep upside down with his wings wrapped around his body. Reno said: ''We did not put a leash on the bat. 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. There is something he likes about this area. ''When the bat's sleeping he looks like Dracula, so that is what he have nicknamed him.''

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.''

Police search for two backpackers who sunbathed in the middle of a road in Taiwan

Police in Taiwan were hunting two backpackers who shocked locals when they started sunbathing in the middle of a road. The shirtless lads laid out a pink towel on the tarmac at a busy junction in Changhua County on Sunday afternoon. Wearing their swimming shorts and both sporting beards and long hair, they then reclined as they soaked up the sun. Baffled locals took pictures of the pair before they were reported to the police. Officers arrived shortly after 4.40pm but the men had already disappeared after the incident. Confused residents joked that the lads had become lost and ''mistaken Taiwan for Hawaii''. Lin Xuxu said: ''Foreigners should know that you can't come to Taiwan and use the road for tanning.'' Huang Jiasong added: ''Is this normal abroad? I've never seen people go sunbathing on the road before.'' Others urged drivers passing through the busy intersection to ''be careful'' while some said there are ''handsome and domineering half-naked men'' in the road. Wang Yingzhou, the head of the Lushan Police Station, said they were alerted to the bizarre behaviour at 4.40pm and immediately deployed officers. He added: ''Two foreigners were sunbathing there. We immediately sent staff to the scene, but the two men had left and could not be found. Pedestrians are not allowed to stay on the road, and they are not allowed to lie there to sunbathe.'' According to the country's road laws, running, chasing, swimming, sitting or lying on frequent traffic routes is enough to hinder traffic and will impose a fine of 300 Taiwanese dollars (7.50GBP).

"My heart is beating so fast," said the filmer, with a huge sigh of relief.

This is the dramatic moment a flash flood swamped a restaurant sending tourists running for their lives. Dozens of people had been gathered in the cafe at the Khao Yai National Park in Nakhon Nayok, Thailand, yesterday (August 13).

The resort in the popular wildlife area was packed with locals who had the day off for a national holiday celebrating the country's annual Mother's Day. Hundreds of visitors were stranded after the downpour at different parts of the national park. Onlooker Wanruadee Wongpheung said: ''The water had come down from the river at the Nang Rong waterfalls. It was scary and I was worried about all the people who were there.''

Vet gets into dead elephant's stomach during post mortem

This is the moment a vet gets into the stomach of an elephant during a post mortem. Veterinary doctor Mahesh Babu, who works in Kerala, India, wanted to collect internal body parts of the dead elephant and send them for lab analysis. After attempts to scrape them off using instruments proved unsatisfactory, he did the unthinkable. He lowered himself into the belly of the behemoth, which had been split open during a post mortem procedure, and carved out the organs he wanted with a knife. A forest official who was present at the spot praised Babu. “He is very passionate about his job and committed to the welfare of animals,” he said. The 35-year-old elephant had died of electrocution near Marayur in Idukki district on August 8. The elephant had been considered a rogue as it had developed a habit of raiding crops and villages for food. Many farmers had illegally fenced their farms with electric wires to keep it away. The elephant died trying to pull out a fence. Local police have arrested a local farmer holding him responsible for the elephant's death.
