Cop helps out proposal by 'arresting' groom-to-be but it nearly backfires

Carlos was determined to make his proposal to girlfriend Brittni one to remember. To do so, he staged an elaborate prank, enlisting the help of Brittni's whole family and even the police. J Danielle, the cousin to Brittni, decided to film the proposal when Carlos told her he was going to involve the local police department. In the clip, filmed earlier this week by Brittni's cousin J Danielle in Lafayette, Louisiana, Carlos is being detained inside the police car while a cop is telling Brittni and her party of friends to get back inside the hotel. And it doesn't sound like he's messing about. The policeman finally lets Carlos out of the police car and goes back inside the building with his girlfriend. After a kerfuffle, Carlos gets down on one knee and proposes. The risky prank nearly backfires as a stunned Brittni walks away. But in the end, the answer is what Carlos wants to hear. “She was very surprised and in shock, which turned out to be a very happy moment for her,” writes J Danielle. ++THIS VIDEO HAS BEEN BLEEPED FOR SWEARING.

Incredible moment metro train halts to save man’s life

++CLIENTS PLEASE NOTE: THIS VIDEO HAS BEEN LOOPED++ This is the incredible moment a train halts to save a man who was crossing the tracks. The incident occurred in New Delhi on May 22. Mayur Patel, 21, was waiting to catch a Delhi Metro train when he realised that he was on the wrong platform. CCTV footage at the Shastri Nagar station shows him jumping down on the tracks and crossing them to catch a stationary train on an adjacent platform. But as Patel gets in front of the train, it starts moving, and he scrambles to get on to the platform. The alert driver applies brakes to stop the train but not before knocking him down. Patel, who was not hurt, was detained by the Metro officials. He told them that he had just come to Delhi and it was his first ride in the Metro. “I did not know how to get to the other platform,” said Patel. The officials fined him for the offence and let him go. Crossing tracks in Delhi metro stations is an offence and can draw a fine of Rs 500 (£5.50 ) or a prison sentence of up to 6 months.

Eyewitness captures tense moments during shootout in Panama City, Florida

A man suspected of engaging in a shootout with police in Panama City, Florida, on May 22 has been found dead, according to media reports. The filmer, who works in a bank near where the shootout took place, captured the tense moments on video. He said that the suspected shooter was a customer at his bank. In the footage, gunfire and sirens can be heard as the eyewitness films from his position inside the bank. Then a SWAT officer in body armor is seen rushing to the area, followed by an armored vehicle with more officers. Later on, a bomb squad robot is seen rolling down a ramp. “While working at my local bank today, I had no clue I would be so close to all of the action as there was a live shooter just outside my place of work,” the filmer said. “Before we knew it, we heard gunfire and immediately turned on the intercoms at the tubes for our drive thru, so we could hear what was going on,” the filmer said. “A lady from the SWAT team told us to immediately evacuate the branch and lock ourselves in the bank,” the filmer continued. “We watched everything unfold from the drive-thru window after that.” “One of my co-workers is nine months pregnant and her baby is due next week, so the officers helped escort us out of the branch and into our vehicles,” the filmer added. “When we found out the shooter was one of our customers, we were all stunned. He was always very quiet and kept to himself, but never seemed capable of this. He’s a business owner and a lot of people in the community knew him from K&H Lawn Services.”

Adorable husky puppy born with three legs is now bounding along

This adorable husky puppy who was the runt of the litter is coming on leaps and bounds - despite being born with just three legs. Two-month-old Orca came out last in a group of six other dogs and there were fears for her health after she was missing a limb. Owner Nutzaa was worried she might not be strong enough to survive and had the female puppy checked over by vets who gave her the all clear. Now two months on, Orca has the most energy of all the dogs - and spends her days jumping on the other pups and hopping around the yard outside the family home in Khon Kaen, Thailand. Nutzaa said: ''Orca is very high-spirited. She has so much energy. "At first she struggled to move around but once she figured her way around she became the fastest of all the puppies. ''A lot of people have asked to adopt her but she's not going anywhere. I want to keep her with me all the time. She's so cute, everyone loves her very much.''
