A parkour athlete has been filmed "surfing" a fridge down a multi-storey car park in a London suburb.

The dangerous-looking stunt was filmed in Surbiton, southwest London.

A worker emerged unscathed after the scaffold he was standing on collapsed and landed on a car in central China.

Video filmed in Jingzhou City in Hubei Province on July 10 shows the scaffolding being supported by two men suddenly leaning over and collapsing onto a nearby car.

The scaffolder falling several metres lands on the car, rolls off and remarkably lands on his feet upright.

Although the car was damaged, the worker was not injured.

The case is under investigation.

This man and woman took more than eight minutes to manoeuvre a car into a "rather large" parking spot – before giving up.

CCTV footage filmed on June 22 in Farnborough shows the moment the hatchback attempts to parallel park – holding up traffic in the process.

Eventually, the driver of another car offers to help, but he too has trouble fitting into the spot.

After multiple attempts, the car drives out of shot, seemingly having given up.

The scenes were captured on the security camera of graphic designer Jacqui Parker.

"I was waiting for a parcel," says Parker. "A few days later whilst fast-forwarding through the footage I noticed the car was taking ages to park."

The 45-year-old adds: "I found it funny that both a man and woman couldn't park the car.

"Most people have no problem with the parking space and just reverse straight in."

This six-year-old boy loves police officers and wanted to say thank you to his local cops.

Reynaldo Bautista, 45, was among hundreds of thousands of people affected by Typhoon Henry causing flooding across the Philippines over the last week.

But the father-of-two showed off his positive spirit by donning his swimming trunks and lounging in his living room as if he was relaxing in his very own private pool.

Speaking Filipino, he says to the camera: ''Come on, let's take a bath. This flood has given us a private swimming pool. Nice. Come on in, the water's warm.''

The footage was filmed at Reynaldo's home in Bulacan Province on July 14. Reynaldo's wife, Susan, said the family will wait for the water to subside before attempting repairs.

She said: ''I wouldn't quite call it relaxing by the poolside, but I suppose it's making the best out of a bad situation.''

“This encounter was a thrilling experience for everyone on the vehicle and definitely had everybody’s hearts racing,” the filmer added.

This is the moment a cop risks his own life to save a passenger hanging from a train’s door.

The cop grabs the man but loses balance and falls down. Other passengers on the platform rush to pull both of them to safety.

The incident occurred at Panvel in Mumbai, India, on July 14.

A Mumbai resident, Ravi Balu, 25, tried to catch the Panvel-Nanded Express, which had begun to move.

Due to his heavy backpack, he failed to get into the running train. Balu lost his balance and managed to grab the door handle.

The train sped away dragging Balu along, who hung on precariously, desperately avoiding slipping into the gap between the platform and the tracks.

A Railway Police Constable Vinod Shinde, who was on duty, saw the unfolding mishap and rushed to help Balu.

A few passengers, who had Spotted Balu ahead of Shinde, didn’t dare to help him as the train’s momentum could have dragged them also underneath.

But ignoring his own safety, Shinde grabbed Balu and fell down along with him. A few alert passengers rushed to pull both of them to safety.

Sunil Udasi, PRO, Central Railways told reporters: “The train could have dragged Shinde as well and crushed him. He risked his own life to save the passenger.”

The Railway police took the lucky but shocked passenger to their office and cautioned him not to take such risks in future.

This is the moment a group of Indian villagers capture a six-foot-long crocodile and haul it up over a 40-feet deep irrigation canal.

The crocodile resists but is forced to give in.

The incident occurred at a village in Vijayapura district of South India on July 13.

The crocodile was spotted at an irrigation canal, which draws water from the nearby Almatty dam, one of India’s largest reservoirs.

The villagers were baffled that the crocodile had escaped from the reservoir and walked over 20 km to reach their village.

After villagers alerted, forest officials went to the spot and launched a rescue operation with the help of local men.

They caught the 175-kg reptile with nets and tied it up with ropes.

“The challenge was in lifting the crocodile out of the steep canal wall. The reptile was unwilling to make the climb. But they managed to lift it step by step,” said Sangamesh Halepeti, 43.

The forest officials took the crocodile back to the reservoir later and released it.
