3:01 pm
university president now? >> give us the face. i'll begin today's show with some surveillance footage from an australian pharmacy. the woman behind the counter in the pharmacy is truke lee. she's one of the owners of the store, along with her husband, peter vu. you see two men come into the store and truke trying to figure out what to do. the commotion starts. she high-tails it and runs. her husband peter in the back office at the top of your screen comes out to try to help her. he chases one of the guys down, the guy charges him with what looks like a giant knife or a machete. but that's not all there is to this video. as this is going on, this man with the knife is asking where's your money? where's your money? peter, knowing his two children are in this back office, quickly opens the till and just says have what you want.
3:02 pm
that's 8-year-old jamie, the boy in the green shirt, and his 2-year-old sister, justine. but watch what this brave little boy does, pushes a chair out of the way, has his 2-year-old sister's in his, you can see the card rack turn as he moves it and gets around it to try to protect her. >> how brave of the little boy to keep his head straight and be able to protect his sister and get her out of harm's way. >> did anyone get hurt? >> no one was injured. they did get away with money. peter vu, the owner of the store, said the whole thing lasted no longer than 30 seconds. this was the second armed robbery in the last six months. the pharmacy had also been broken into four times previo previously. that's bo mcmahon, he lives in a camp out in the woods in alabama. he came in contact with a
3:03 pm
cottonmouth. >> i saw it swimming down the creek, i hit it with the machete, killed it. picked it up. he picked the head up. >> that's one of his camp mates who killed the cottonmouth, so bo is like, huh, let me put my hand in there. >> probably something like this. hey, watch this. >> the nerves, i guess, it bit down on his finger. >> i didn't know the thing would still bite with the head cut off. it bit me. >> maybe wait a day. you know, his friend just cut the head off of the snake and you immediately put your finger in the snake's smooth? give it a little time to -- >> stop wiggling? >> yeah. >> i fell down a few times. you seen that. i couldn't help it. >> a cottonmouth is a venomous snake. he's not getting bitten by a garden-variety black snake. he has a cottonmouth bite. >> they said the bite was not that serious. he still had to go to the
3:04 pm
hospital. listen to what bo had to say if asked if he would do that again. >> would you do that again? >> what's that? >> play with the snake? >> no, never again. the situation gets out of hand quickly in this video. being shot on a cell phone in front of a walmart. >> you're about to tase me? >> there's a walmart contracted security guard standing out front. these two guys are taking video of the front of the store on their camera phone. the security guard says don't take any video of me. >> i'm doing it of the sign, of the walmart. not you. promise. >> a few seconds into t the security guard goes show me your i.d.. >> nobody has to show i.d., sir. >> yeah, you have to show i.d.. >> sir, you are grabbing me? are you serious? calm down. put it down. >> are you serious? you're about to tase me? >> is this a tasering event? really? >> my first question is why and
3:05 pm
what are these guys filming in a walmart parking lot? >> are they filming to try to instigate this guy? it escalates, but it doesn't get to the point of the security guard pulling the trigger. one of the other guys in the video puts his hand up to calm things down -- >> get your hands off me -- >> don't tase me, sir. >> we're leaving. we're leaving. we're leaving. >> you're not going anywhere now. >> why didn't he say you're trespassing this is private property, take your camera elsewhere. >> i have not broken the law, sir, so -- >> yes, you have. at this point is, you can go to jail. do you understand? >> the two men were arrested and handcuffed, they were later released when a houston police officer arrived. no charges were made. the two men were given criminal trespassing warnings. we reached out to walmart. they promised a statement on this situation, we have not received that statement before we went to air with this story.
3:06 pm
we talked to the houston police department, he is not part of the houston police force. >> he may have felt they were completely disobeying what he asked? >> even if that's what he thought, there's no call for a taser in the situation. again, we don't know what happened before the video started recording. >> you're about to tase me? check out this scene on this canadian freeway where the road was really paved with gold. >> this is the crash scene of a huge brinks truck carrying 3 million to $5 million worth of canadian coins. >> oh, my gosh. >> they're all spilled all over the road. >> do you know what denominations of coins? >> it's all small coins. >> >> loonies and toonies. >> investigators are still trying to figure out what it is
3:07 pm
that happened. >> must have been some mechanical failure which our officers will determine, or the driver fell asleep. >> i'm shocked to see how far and wide these cars spread out. that must have been a heck of an impact. >> the impact left the driver and passenger of this truck in serious condition and caused four other vehicles to crash. the clean-up process is intense, so they enlisted the help of a crane magnet. >> i don't know if it will find it all. there's some inside the truck, outside the truck. >> you know guys will be out there with metal detectors. >> and if you're a kid with a sweet tooth, this is also where you want to be. one of the other trucks involved in the crash was full of candy. >> candy and money? >> it's like a giant highway pinata. michael vick is on video crusading against animal abuse.
3:08 pm
>> just seems a little fabricated. >> see what vick says and who he's saying it to. you've seen this. a guy holding up traffic. you haven't seen this. >> what? >> watch what happens when the
3:09 pm
3:10 pm
. welcome back to the show. don't forget to check in at rightthisminute.com. great videos all day long. i'm going to now call russia the land of dash cams, that's where this video comes from. >> we got this video from live leak. >> the light turns green, the person on the motor bike is not going anywhere. the person behind him is like, hey, come on. the person on the bike doesn't like the honking. >> what?
3:11 pm
>> and brings out the axe! >> he's carrying an axe on his scooter? >> why did he have an axe? where was that thing? >> he's like the hells scooter of russia. >> i know. look how quickly the other car -- >> the light was green. go, dude. i would have beeped, too. >> the scary part is he is calm and cool about the whole thing. he doesn't get all crazy. puts the kick stand down. pulls the axe out of the axe holder on the scooter. >> i will say the scariest part is not he's calm, it's that he carries an axe. >> he could be a lumberjack or an axe murderer. nfl quarterback michael vick is part of a new ad campaign for the humane society. in this ad campaign, he is talking about his now incredibly famous conviction for participating in a dogfighting ring. he served 21 months in prison.
3:12 pm
he was convicted back in 2007. >> i wanted to be a voice in the fight against animal cruelty, i don't want kids to go down the wrong path. i don't want more animals to be hurt. >> are those his words or words of the humane society that is paying him to do this. >> he says he wants to make up for all of the wrongs in his past. >> this stuff always confuses me. just because somebody makes a mistake like michael vick did, can they just say they're sorry and pay their time and be done with it? do they have to be an advocate on the other side now? it seems a little fabricated. >> i think the fact he is going to talk to kids who would have never heard the message until michael vick came and told them, that's a positive. >> people say this often, it's true, you learn more in life from making mistakes. >> i think it's a poor choice. i don't call that a mistake. >> he had bad judgment. he had time to think, and i do feel like he has learned something. there's another commercial out there, too, about 30 seconds
3:13 pm
long. look at it as well. >> if you see animal cruelty in your neighborhood, speak up. make the call in this particular ad he is asking people to speak up if they see animal cruelty. >> i like the humane society, i hope this reaches some people. >> we want to know what you think about this ad campaign. head over to our facebook page, facebook.com/rightthisminute. >> tomorrow on "right this minute" -- >> we have seen quite a few proposal videos. no, i don none of them as beautifully shot as this one. >> that's tomorrow on "right this minute". >> a go-pro camera lost in the ocean in it many family memories. >> a lot of personal stuff. who does it long to? unraveling the mystery to the videos and finding the owner next. and just in case you didn't celebrate the holiday like these women -- >> still plenty of time to
