tv Right This Minute KICU May 8, 2012 3:30pm-4:00pm PDT
hello, everyone, i'm beth troutman. we have today's best videos "right this minute." >> you don't want that. >> you don't want that! >> what is that? terrorizing a boatload of guys? see the panicked rush to get to safety. you want to reach out and help. what's an end-of-school party without somebody jumping from the roof to the pool? >> but when you look closer, ian actually hit the pavement first. >> we have got the incredible survival story. a guy gets his order at a fast food joint and then wonders -- so how did that giant straw get in there? >> in your bag? >> this came out of my bag.
and it's the video that proves beggars can't be choosey. >> he's just being an ass. it's time to get today's show started. and christiane has our story. >> for a group of people traveling on the strait of georgia in british columbia, the ride became very exciting when they saw this in the water. >> you don't want that. you don't want that! you don't want that! you don't want that, guys! >> i don't think they want that. >> what is that? >> that is a cooler that was swimming right next to the boat. >> a cougar as in a cat or as in a woman? >> he's got the engine! >> it seems like the cougar swims under the boat so they did end up killing the engine so that they didn't harm the cougar. >> that's worse than, like,
reeling in a shark. you get a shark on board, he can't really move around. you stay clear, you're okay. you get a big cat on board, you're in trouble. >> in this part of the video, they zoom in and look, it was trying to get on the boat. >> go, go, go! >> my heart is breaking for this cougar because you want to reach out and help. >> but what do you do here? do you rescue him or what? because you could be putting your lives in danger. >> in danger. >> they're not dead in the middle of the ocean here. they are pretty close to land. so i feel like the cougar could have swam over there and saved himself. take a look at this city surveillance footage from buffalo, new york. i want to warn you, it is tough to watch. pay close attention to the people on the right side of your screen as they come walking through this intersection. >> oh, my god! oh, my gosh!
>> it barely missed the guy who's left standing in the middle of your screen. he got away just in time. it did hit the person in the middle of that crowd. >> it looked like he turned right for it. >> the guys seemed to see the car coming or at least the lights. they try to get onto the sidewalk, but that's right where the car is headed. >> he was taken to the hospital right after this happened and believe it or not, treated and then released. >> wow! >> this was a hit-and-run. the driver of this car was a 19-year-old nigerian exchange student, but there were so many people who saw it, they quickly started calling 911. and within five minutes, police had this guy in custody. >> did he do it on purpose? >> that matter is still under investigation. they're trying to figure out in this group of people was targeted or if this was an accident. they do say that they don't beli believe that alcohol was involved. >> it's amazing he was launched like that and then released from the hospital that night. >> listen to what the mayor had to say. this is byron brown.
>> our message is clear that if you commit this kind of crime or any other kind of crime in the city of buffalo, we are watching. the video surveillance cameras are always watching. >> it always seems like there's somebody who wants to jump from the roof to the swimming pool at the big end-of-the-year party, right? take a look at this one. this is at colorado state university at the rams village apartment complex in fort collins. this is sophomore ian smith. he jumps off the roof. and you see him eventually in the pool. looks like a successful attempt. but when you look closer, ian actually hit the pavement first. a body then sort of rolled into the pool. ian got seriously injured during this. according to his brother, he broke his ankles. he broke his heels. he has multiple broken vertebrae in his lower back, and he's in critical condition. >> he could be paralyzed.
>> some of the paramedics say this guy is lucky to be alive. kusa did a story about this. the reporter in this video shows the distance between the house and the swimming pool. >> this is the edge of the building. he had to go all the way over here to the pool. >> that's quite a broad jump from the top of a house. ian doesn't even live at this apartment complex. and some witnesses at the party had said that there was some drinking going on. >> everyone was, like, don't do it! >> oh, my god! >> you hear everybody realize what's going on. >> oh, my god, he's bleeding. >> there was, like, almost a pool of blood there in the swimming pool. you can see still moving around, had to be helped from the pool. >> i don't even feel bad for the kid because who thinks to run off a roof into a six foot deep pool. even if he made it into the pool, it wouldn't have been good. >> where's his friends? they should be there stopping him. >> some of them were saying don't do it, dude, but he just
wasn't listening. >> run! >> oh, my god! >> oh! >> that blood-kurlgcurdling scrs from a woman taking video of a tractor trailer stuck on a track in north carolina. >> but she's yelling "run!" >> who is she yelling "run" to? >> so the driver and passenger of the rig. if you watch closely to the left, you'll see those two people getting out of the way seconds before the train crashes into this truck. >> oh, whoa! >> and it barrelled through there. do you know what the truck was carrying? >> the truck was full of cotton bale.
>> honestly, of all the things to be in that truck, nobody was hurt. but the mayor is getting fed up. this is the fifth time in ten years this has happened. >> these are accidents that can be prevented if the truck would just obey the signage, we wouldn't have this. >> there are signs there that clearly say trucks are not allowed to use this crossing. >> if that train derailed, that could have been a huge disaster. >> our friends at wsoc got a few images of the aftermath. you can see the truck now is not stuck anymore. it drives away with what's remaining of the trailer stuck to it. >> oh, my goodness. >> are you kidding me? >> the mayor of the city is considering closing this crossing for good. a bunch of dudes, motorcycles and some drama, and you've got a tv show. >> typically motorcycle brotherhoods are pretty secretive. >> we'll hear from the founding father of the laughing devils

>> it's a happy meal, right? >> so then he goes back to the counter and starts asking, did you guys put this in my bag? >> i know it's not real. i just pulled this out of my bag. is this like a kids meal? >> that came out of your bag? >> this came out of my bag. >> that came out of your bag? >> i don't know how else to put it. >> is this a joke or something? >> i guess this is what a prankster magician does. >> yeah. this is fichick-fil-a. >> you can name restaurants by the decor? >> fast food detective. >> not again. >> that one's longer. >> one of the fast food chains, i like about them, they have the really thick straws. >> you get more drink in your

girlfriends. they were out to dinner. he was sent there to make sure nothing goes down. >> a photographer has just hit charles in the face with his camera.

you need to ride an american-made motorcycle so your gold wing won't work. you need to be there for your brother. you need to believe in the brotherhood that we share. >> for guys that just love motorcycles, are we going to see a lot of cool bikes and rides? >> you're going to see some awesome bikes including mine and some good rides. >> but no gold wings? >> no gold wings. >> you'll see us passing a few. >> oh! all right. that's okay. you guys want to check out "the devil's ride," it premieres tuesday, may 8th, at 10:00 eastern. so far we've seen people from bad lip reading dub over presidential candidates, but now they've tackled a popular song. that song, gotye's "somebody i used to know." ♪

some producers entered in this video for an anti-puppy mill psa competition for the humane society. >> i live in a small wire cage. >> my entire life. >> no one loves me. >> no one touches me. >> i live in filth. >> i cry for help. >> but no one comes. >> all the kids in this video have either adopted or rescued a dog. and so they're telling the stories that dogs can't tell when they come from puppy mills. >> i am america's dirty little secrets. >> i am a multibillion-dollar industry. >> when you buy a puppy from a pet store, you keep me here. you keep me in business. >> please love me.
>> please help me. >> when you stop buying. >> i will be saved. >> please adopt from your local rescue or shelter and make the world a better place. >> this is so effective. because when you put the face of a child in this scenario, you can't help but react to it and nobody wants to see their child in a situation like this. why would you want a puppy in a situation like this. >> if this was a bunch of adults in these cages, it wouldn't be half as powerful, i think. >> i think producer jennifer peterson and geno andrews did a good job because puppies can't speak for themselves. >> go rescue a dog. >> yeah, what she said. >> rescue dogs have this very nice temperament. i have one and i happen to adore him. >> yeah, my next dog's going to be a pound puppy. baby elephant loves the sand.

their windows and feed away. >> what do you feed a donkey? >> carrots, pretzels, bread, whatever you have in your fridge and waucnt to get rid of. >> don't you feel like there would be some crazy noise coming out? he's just being an ass. >> he is. okay. now you're just a few minutes away from the end of the show. and spending a lot of time on our favorite website, say with me now, rightthisminute.com. rightthisminute.com. okay, now back to the show. a race caught on camera. lots of cameras. the entire go pro race experience. >> bingo. >> experience it for yourself from every angle next.
who can take down darth maul? no one but 18-month-old ari who lives in orville, california. >> is that a motion-sensitive darth maul? >> that is a darth maul bank, and her dad said that she is amused by this thing. so he thought, let me show her the ways of the jedi. he puts the light sabre in her hands, and it's ari versus darth maul. let me tell you, the force is with this padawan.
>> she just kept waving the thing. >> this looks like a david and goliath story. >> if she doesn't get him with the light sabre, she'll get him with her extreme cuteness. >> cute will always beat the dark side. the force is strong with this one. >> darth maul got beat up by a little baby girl. in a onesie. wouldn't you love to know what dogs are thinking? >> yeah. >> some researchers at emory university in atlanta are trying to figure it out. this whole project is called the dog project. and the dog you're looking at is callie who belongs to one of the researchers part of this project, gregory burns, a professor of neuroeconomics. >> we hope this opens a whole new door into canine cognition, cognition of other species. >> they're scanning the part of the brain that has to do with human interaction. >> and really paving the way for
understanding interspecies communication. >> they trained two different dogs to actually crawl into an mri machine. >> the dog has to walk up some steps to go onto the patient table, go in the mri, shimmy down and stick her head in a head coil and then hold still. >> this is the first time that a scan of a dog's brain has been taken while a dog was awake. >> i want to know how much they really think they're going to figure out because yeah, they want to go on walks and they want to eat food. and that's about it. >> but what they can find out is possibly what kinds of language they understand. how much they understand. how hand signals and things affect the dog's brain. >> this is all real interesting, but i think when a dog shows up with a leash in its mouth and wants to go for a walk, i think that's kind of universal. >> wouldn't it be great to see if you could get a scan of the dog's brain when he's sitting there with the leash in his mouth? >> he's saying i want to go outside. i want to tinkle. >> the reason we care, i think

experience. >> bingo. the challenge is a big deal to racers. if you want to win a race, this is the one you want to win. so it's on a public road, right? so could i take my jeep and be in the race? >> no. the guy in the ferrari in this video, he can't even test. >> yeah. shoo-in for second. a go pro on that would be awesome. that's it for us here at "right this minute." we're so glad that you joined us. we'll see you tomorrow. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com
