9:31 am
rescue operation. and the story of a wife who buys her man some beer. >> how sweet. >> but this is how he repays her. >> are you kidding me. >> she walked away from the car and has not stopped walking ever since. we're all familiar with the saying just the tip of the iceberg. the tourists in this video got to see what was below the tip of the iceberg. this is off the coast of argentina. parts of this iceberg cracked off and it causes the iceberg to lose balance and pretty much flip over so the bottom comes up, the top goes down and watch. it just kind of starts to break the surface of the water, slowly come up. it looks like waterfalls in the middle of the ocean. >> what's interesting to me always when i see something like this is to see how much ice is
9:32 am
formed under the water. you think that like when you see an ice cube in the water they just kind of melt away once they're at the bottom. >> it is like the iceberg did a 180. whatever was hanging underneath the water was less buoyant and it just flipped over. that comes up out of the water but then that starts to crumble and melt. check out this video from the uk. four guys enjoying a fun afternoon on a scooter. by fun afternoon, i mean these guys are about to attempt a robbery at a jewelry store. they ram one of those scooters through the door to break in. a couple of the guys on the scooter wait outside and two of the guys on the scooters are preparing themselves for a quick get-away. this old man, 71-year-old michael graver, realized these guys are breaking in to this store. so when he saw this going down, he decided he was not going to let this happen and the

9:34 am
the reason i'm telling but it now, is because a man, 34-year-old dwayne marsh, has been found guilty of conspiracy to commit robbery and he is expected to be sentenced with four other people who have pleaded guilty to the same offense. >> right on. >> this is like a perfect example -- and no disrespect -- but old man strength and old man toughness. fm. you guys won't believe this incredible truck driver rescue from china. >> in this video you see from news 24 out of india, this driver was going down some type of ramp and the car flipped over on its back. >> this happened at a construction site. going down a ramp, then something happens and it just rolls right on to its side. >> down in a hole? >> then on to its back. here's the amazing thing. they were able to get the driver

out after an intense rescue. >> you got to think he's in that like steel sort of box. maybe that's what kept him safe sglp interesting. look at the driver, how he's crouched in there. >> oh, my gosh. >> and they worked to get this guy out. obviously no easy task. look, there he is. there's his face, you see his face, his nose, he's just covered in what looks like black soot. >> it looks like they used like hydraulic jaws of life to move some of that stuff out of the way. >> one of the people in the rescue operation is carrying him out on his back. once you see where he is, and how he was stuck in there, you're thinking, how did they even tell it was him unless he was screaming. and how did they get him out? >> the accident itself zblsh it was a construction site. when he was going down it was kind of like slow motion like, whoa, i'm not supposed to be going this way. then boom, it flips over on its
9:36 am
back. got a video for you guys from the youtube channel military notes. it shows u.s. soldiers teaching afghan soldiers how to use these fragmentation grenades. >> pull the pin, put your arm out, direction you throw it, then you'll throw, and then as soon as you throw, you're going to get down. >> then of course they go out and they try it out for themselves. think it's safe to say they don't have little league in afghanistan because these guys don't have the best arms. >> that's live ammunition. >> oh, yeah, these are live grenades. these aren't fake ones. but watch this guy. you can hear all his buddies totally laughing at his wet rag of an arm that he has. >> the best part about this is that the instruction was to point in the direction that you throw. he points and then throws it that way. so i hope he just points far off
