These are some of the luckiest folks around! They’re walking along, minding their own business, when — BAM — something nearly takes their lives. For some, it’s a car. For others, it’s a semi-truck or massive wooden log. But no matter what almost stole their lives away, each one of the people in this heartstopping clip is more than lucky.
They’re blessed! We’re just glad surveillance and dashboard cameras were running so we could watch these hair-raising moments unfold from the safety of our own homes!
Being a walking pedestrian anywhere in the world is risky. However, according to a study by AARP, the American Public Health Association, America Bikes, and Safe Routes to Schools National Partnership, there are actually several cities in the United States that pose a severe threat to walkers. Shockingly, four of the ten worst cities for pedestrians are in Florida: Orlando, Tampa-St. Petersburg, Miami-Fort Lauderdale, and Jacksonville.
The remaining six are also in the South: Memphis, Tennessee; Raleigh, North Carolina; Louisville, Kentucky; Houston, Texas; Birmingham, Alabama; and Atlanta Georgia. These densely populated cities have a higher rate of pedestrian mortality than anywhere else in the States – merely crossing the street in these places could have serious consequences.
This heart-pounding compilation clip shows motorists coming within inches of unexpecting pedestrians, and cars colliding and missing walkers by the hair on their chinny chin chins. Every single one of the people seen in this compilation is more than lucky to be alive today!
They came within inches and seconds to death but cheated it narrowly. This compilation is an excellent reminder to keep our heads on a swivel and always pay attention to your surroundings. One momentary lapse (just like some of these folks had) could be the final nail in the coffin! Take a peek at these bone-chilling moments for yourself below!
The staff at Good Hands would do anything for their pupper pupils – even if that means braving the chilly Canadian winters to gather them for doggy daycare. Their unique pick-up method is unlike anything we’ve ever seen – and now it’s going viral online for all of the right (super cute) reasons.
Every day, the Good Hands bus driver makes his rounds and stops outside of the daycare customers’ houses. They’ll honk the horn and get out to help the furry travelers into the bus. Rain or shine, snow or sleet, the Good Hands bus makes its way through Cape Brenton.
Some of the pups are even sent to “school” with a backpack full of their daily necessities. While the pickup bus is a great feature for the pups and their owners, it’s the facility itself that really keeps the dogs happy!
As soon as the bus parks and the driver releases the dogs from their roadway-safe kennels, the pups sprint into the building. It’s time to party! There are balls, squeaky toys, stuffed animals, kiddie pools and kind staff members to play with!
Good Hands is truly a dog’s dream and an owner’s best friend. Learn more about Good Hands’ innovative pickup method and their awesome outlook on pet care below. There’s a reason why this incredible doggy daycare is so popular around town. Now we can only hope other doggy daycare facilities follow suit!
From the flowers to the food, weddings are planned down to the minute. One couple who were excited to get married had no idea what was about to go down on their beautiful day.
Tricia and Neil had a beautiful day planned to celebrate their wedding on February 3, 2017. But what they didn’t know is that their family and friends had a special flash mob planned!
At first a man interrupts their vows and freaks the couple out. Was it an ex-boyfriend? An angry ex-girlfriend? Maybe a family member who disagreed with their nuptials?
It turned out to be the start of an epic flash mob to the song “How Great Thou Art.” During the video (Below) you can tell the people in attendance had no idea this was happening. Tricia was in tears by then end – you may be too!
While it is understandable for an endangered and hungry elephant to destroy a farm in their search for food, these elephants are often unaware of the fact that they are unknowingly consuming plants that contain poisonous compounds. We cannot blame an animal for their need to eat and we cannot blame farmers for wanting their crops to produce the necessary yield so that they can continue to survive.
Luckily, there is a solution available that allows the farmers and the elephants to coexist in perfect harmony. Did you know that elephants just so happen to be terrified of African honey bees? This is very understandable, as many of us humans tend to share the same fear. As such, the farmers of the region have finally decided to put these bees and allow them to protect their crops.
The elephants also need to be protected from themselves and by keeping them away from potentially dangerous plants, these animals will no longer be compelled to consume items that may lead to their own demise. A program has been created to ensure the continued prosperity of farmers and the continued safety of elephants, a program that is known as the Elephants and Bees Project.
If you would like to learn more about this amazing initiative and the myriad of awesome ways that it will help elephants and bees that reside in the proud nation of Kenya, then be sure to check out the video below to find out more. Not only do the elephants leave the area as soon as they hear the buzzing of bees, but they even take these opportunities to send off warnings to their friends and loved ones as well.
This is one of the most genius plans that we have ever had the privilege of enjoying and we had a fun time learning more about the proper methods for ensuring the protection of crops. If you enjoyed this clip as much we did, then please do not hesitate to share away.
