>> you're getting close. >> yeah. >> once they get to the top, there's not much contemplating very much we're at the top, it's time to jump. >> three, two, one. see ya! >> you see the first guy pull the chute and shortly thereafter the second guy does well. we see his descent which relative to the climb itself was a split second. >> whoo hoo! >> had a solid free-fall. must have been really high. easier to go up higher in a plane and takes less time. >> you see the guy land safely. we immediately get the view from behind him. >> good grief. >> three-hour climb, y'all. >> didn't what to do that again for three hours? >> whoo-hoo!
black forest fire in colorado has burned thousands of acres, destroyed hundreds of homes but the video from the colorado fire department shows firefighters standing their ground, saving a home from the devastating fires up there. >> you see the fire's trying to creep up into the trees. >> narrated by a specialist for the colorado springs fire department and takes us through the technicalities of what these guys do to effectively protect a home. listen. >> saw patio furniture, stacking it up here, it's not spread out all over the place and catches on fire. you'll see the fire starting to creep to them. >> imagine being in that position, just holding your ground, watching this fire march towards you at about six inches a minute. notice, though, they're not spraying water all over the place, they're preserving their resources. here's why. >> what we're trying to do is allow the fire to burn out all of the fuel around the house and
let it blow right on by and then we don't have to worry about that reigniting. we're saving water resources for when we really need them. >> also, a good, healthy fire burning. down low in the grass, not reaching up into the crown of the trees. >> the firefighter's applying a small amount of water where the fire has met up with the mulch. >> and worked exactly like they were expecting it to. >> the fire has nowassed through and burned around the house, and leave the house intact. >> wow. >> wow. >> right? >> crazy. >> unreal. >> the firefighters' tactics worked perfectly. credit goes to the homeowner for keeping the tree limbs cut above ten feet. did a lot of good things. only thing wrong, they had a lot of mulch around the outside of the house which is nothing but fuel. so that's what the firefighters were trying to protect? >> 5:30, you've seen what it took approximately 2 1/2 hours to do and that's structure protection at the black forest fire. >> a truck and a tanker collide
on streets of turkey and it is not good. you can see here, that truck is making a turn. here comes the tanker. >> this was captured on surveillance camera on the highway. watch what happened. >> oh. >> full of crude oil, nick. as you can see, a huge fireball, plumes of smoke and fire went hundreds of meters in the air. sadly the tanker driver and his son were severely burned in the accident. >> oh, that's heartbreaking. >> took workers about two hours of intense work to get the fire out. here you can see other footage of the fire while trying to put this out. >> wow. you can see how quickly it started spreading from get-go. it's huge. >> you can see the tanker's turned on its side. the truck that hit the tanker did not catch on fire but it did get a banged-up front end. >> how do you pull in front of a giant tanker? i don't understand. i'm thinking, no, no, he's not going to pull out. >> i have a couple of really
adorable animals for you that don't seem to be afraid of humans. we have a brave little fox in need. >> got his hand caught in the jar. >> i thought that was his tail. >> this fox comes straight up to the human for help. >> and watch what this man does. >> look at this. pulls it right out. runs off into the brush. but he does a little th turnaround. >> so preshcious. i love it! i didn't know for a fact that's a thank you for saving my life. >> yep. >> i interpret that as, quick throwing your trash all over my neighborhood i get stuck, so clean your litter up. >> i'm astonished it went up to the human. >> gail, you're going to be astonished by this as well. a fawn in our presence and this fawn not scared of humans and not scared of human-built
structures. >> he learned how to walk. i need to challenge myself a little more. >> listen to the folks behind the camera. >> her little boy's growing up so fast. >> hoping it's the last time. he doesn't belong on stairs. belongs out in the field somewhere. >> so cute, though. it's a robot that can kick your robutt at air hockey. >> that's a problem. >> mean defense. does he have any offense? >> why this machine is a real game changer. >> and man's best friends are in big trouble. when man spots something nasty on the floor. >> who produced this delicious salad for me tonight. >> they know who ?.=(=pcpcpcpcpcpcpcpcpc2h
up. try to light that on fire. that doesn't work. leaves the lobby. grabs a bag of trash, starts that on fire, and kicks it into the poster. this dummy, of course, was caught on multiple cameras. prosecutors say he stuck around to watch the fire. police were able to identify him and able to arrest him. pretty much immediately. cost about $1,000 damage to the lobby. atm had to be replaced, that cost $23,500. you know there's going to be a camera in an atm lobby. >> why would they stick around to watch it? >> because you're a goofball. >> witnesses watch wad was going on and called police and fire. he was go'ing through a difficult time. going through a financial breakup, turned to drinking and may have been intoxicated during the event. he also claimed he didn't remember doing this. he was like, yeah, now i remember.

on the right the driver of the black car decides to make a right hand turn and takes him down. >> guy has a blinker on. car had a blinker on. scooter rider looks like he was a little impatient. >> the scooter rider was abltog. i'm going warn you, robots are going to take over the world. >> warn us now? you've been warning us since the show started. >> but now you're going to believe me. now robots are winning at air hockey. >> that's a problem. >> okay. he plays a mean defense. does he have any offense. >> nicholas, this robot has it all. this was all put together by some folks at the university in japan. this robot is made up of a four
axis robotic arm, two high-speed cameras and an external pc, and it tracks the game at 500 frames per second. and this robot can change its strategy based on human performance. so it kind of analyzes what the human is doing, changes its strategy, accordingly. and forces the human to have kind of a psychological game with the robot. people who have played against this robot say it is challenging, even though they know they're going to lose to this robot. they like the psychological challenges. and tests have shown that this robot is successful in detecting players' behaviors, forcing them to change strategy. >> can you score on this thing or is it a total brick wall? >> in this video we don't see the human actually score against it. i don't know if anybody's ever scored against this thing. >> wow. >> but the crazy thing is, it in essence almost thinks. >> that is really freaky.
