in big trouble. >> how a strong gust blows a semi right off the road. some hikers high on a mountain are stunned to come across this 1-year-old puppy. >> see the amazing rescue from the middle of nowhere. a snow blower clears one side of the highway only to -- >> blow it back to the other side. >> a look at how they roll in the ukraine and we're looking for april fools day videos. we called in mr. april fools himself. hear the expert advice that could land your video on our show. >> a piece of poop in it. everybody loves it. dash cam video, this time from the united states, believe it or not. we're on interstate 80 just outside of laramie, wyoming, and weather reports predicted high, gusty winds in the stretch. keep an eye on the tow behind
trailer ahead. lots of wide open space and not a lot of trees to protect from gusty winds. see the trailer get out of shape, flopping around, but it is not the trailer in big trouble. it is the truck we're riding in. >> oh! >> 65 miles per hour winds took that semi tractor trailer and flipped it right over on the side. you see the camera crash, dirt coming into the lens. thankfully there were in injuries in this incident. you saw the car in front wobble back and forth and you can't slow downast enough. be making through fine. it is just really luck of the draw, luck of where you are when. two hikers went climbing in
calgary. when they went down they decided let's execute a rescue. what did they rescue? this 1-year-old puppy. >> they just happened upon a puppy in the middle of the hike? >> they looked around. no people up there. it was getting cold. they thought we're going to rescue this fella. >> looks so cold. >> like a rock, all curled up like a rock. >> how did he wind up on a mountain top. >> i am thinking he may have gotten lost. doesn't look like he is starving. >> when you find a dog and it doesn't have a name, you called him rocco. they put him down and he is like, wait a minute, i like being in your arms and he gets along with the program. you can see they have quite a distance to go to get to the bottom of the mountain. at one point they get to an area where there is no way the dog can get his way down without help. look how cute he is.
they must have really good hearts to rescue the dog if you go through all of this. it is not easy to do. they're willing and able and dedicated to doing it. they took him to a vet in calgary and for the most part he was okay but had a problem with his eye and had to put sutures in it. today if they took the sutures out if he is okay there is a family waiting to adopt him and the name is now rome. >> no. they have to go back to the trail head and post a picture of this guy at the trail head. somebody lost this dog. doesn't just wind up there. >> they tried to find the owner. they couldn't. he didn't have a collar on and they scanned him for a chip and he didn't have one. this is a good example why you should chip your dog. you don't know where they could end up. usually it is police responding to incidents of road rage. this youtube uploader believes it is the police causing the road rage. this was in charleston, south
carolina, the guy filming from his vehicle. you can tell the officer, it looks like at first he is blocking this guy, like not speeding up, not letting this guy get around, staying parallel with the other vehicle in the right lane. at first it isn't that big of deal. this is maybe the speed limit. then keep watching this video because it gets a little crazier. the guy with the camera gets in the right lane and eventually passes up the cop. >> acting like a really jack. >> from north carolina and you can see this on the car as he passes. watch what happens after he passes. >> chase me down. look at this! look at this. >> oh, my goodness. >> you see the cop speed up in the right lane, pass the guy up, right in front of him and puts the brakes on. then kind of looks like there is
a collision there and the officer just speeds up and drives away. >> look at this! [ bleep ]. >> what the officer doesn't know is that this whole thing was caught on camera including his car number. >> which is why we reached out to the sheriff's department in north carolina and they told us they are aware of the incident and do not have a comment for us. >> what in the world is the officer's car doing close to charleston, south carolina, anyway? he is several hours away from his area. >> of course we don't know what happened before this video. maybe he cut the cop off. you have to say it is not really an excuse to brake check the guy like we saw him do in the video. >> i have a couple of videos from two parts of the globe. they're going to make you say what on earth? first video is footage from abc news in australia. what you are seeing is a truck dumping two tons of toxic waste not far from a preschool.
and in this two tons of toxic waste is asbestos. he did this at 4:00 in the afternoon right when the young kids were being let out of school. >> wait, wait, was this on purpose or was there malfunction on the truck? >> officials believe it was on purpose. some officials say that this truck was kind of casing the area with the license plate covered and then came through about three months ago and dumped this load. they're hoping someone may recognize markings on the truck because he could face a $1 million fine and up to seven years in jail for this. cost taxpayers $13,000 to clean the mess up. from the truly awful to the oddly bizarre, this dash cam footage is how they clear snow in ukraine. if you notice this car with the dash cam is driving down one side of the highway. on the other side of the highway is a snow clearer. not doing a whole lot of good clearing the snow.
all he is doing is clearing from one side and blowing it on the other side of the street. >> and then come back on the other side ask blow it back. >> you see the driver go through this snow blowing apparatus. >> looks like a storm he is driving through. >> so weird. >> what on earth? a police officer pops the trunk and gets a big surprise. >> whoa, whoa, whoa! >> what's in there? >> oh, my. >> the funny story behind the deer debacle. >> like let me out of here. and b.a.s.e. jumpers perform a crazy stunt off a hot air balloon. >> the first guy lowering down like whoa. >> see what happens when the stunt really gets started. >>

officer miller was on the beat in kalamazoo, michigan, and notice the car near a hotel and the guy in the car looked suspicious and then he noticed the trunk area and the guy in the car said why don't you see what i got in there. >> whoa, whoa, whoa! >> what? >> deer? >> oh, my. >> that would be a live deer like the scene in tommy boy. are you flipping kidding me? >> what? >> the guy told the officer, listen, i thought it was dead. >> he hit it. he thought it was incapacitated and take it home and use it to feed the family. as you can see, it didn't make it home. >> the deer was like let me out of here. >> might come jumping out of the thing butt first and stumble and how the heck did i end up here and he scurries off and probably hundreds of miles from his family now. >> looking for the trunk release thing in there.
