4:00 pm
i'm beth troutman. it's time for the best stories and videos of the day "right this minute." firefighters get a call about a girl stuck in a tree. we mean inside the tree. >> i ended up going head first
4:01 pm
about 30 feet. >> see how she was swallowed up and the miracle it took to get her out. a video surfaces of airline baggage handlers going through passengers' bags and taking items. hear about the guy who blew the lid off the whole operation. the video is blowing up. a girl asking jason segal for a date. >> i swear i'm sane, tested and disease-free. >> hear why this singer says the whole thing was a big accident. >> i did not even write this with the intention of him seeing it. >> and the story of cute cockatiels born from an elicit love tryst. >> he is going to town. >> it's birdie style. >> oh! >> what? quick action of neighbors and firefighters managed to rescue five people from a fiery apartment. we got this video from nbc 2 and this all happened in rancho cordova. check out this cell phone video
4:02 pm
a neighbor was able to catch. there are five people caught in that apartment right now. two adults and three children. margaret uton was trapped up there with her grandkids. the fire started in the apartment next door. that neighbor left the apartment, climbed over the balcony and joined margaret to try to escape the fire. >> flames were coming towards the back window. it was just coming closer and closer. >> a neighbor down below, nicole roads, started yelling up to the ball cothis and said throw the grandkids over the balcony, we'll catch them. >> i put my grandbabies off the balcony to these folks here. my grandbabies was not staying on the balcony. >> within seconds the grandkids were safely on the ground and thankfully the firefighters were there in no time because they were literally like 200 yards away. >> i'm so proud of our guys right now. they did such a great job along with our community here in rancho cordova. i honestly believe we saved five lives tonight. >> they are all lucky.
4:03 pm
you see the firefighters guiding down margaret and the neighbor. >> the neighbors were playing the role of firefighters and rescue workers in this one. they were able to save people before the firefighters got there. >> that fire must have spread incredibly quickly to have flames that size with the firefighters able to get there as quickly as they were. ever wonder what happens to your checked baggage after the agent throws it on that conveyor belt behind the counter? >> i always worry. >> at the philadelphia international airport this was happening, surveillance footage we got from live week and it shows an american airlines baggage handler going through passengers' bags and taking items. >> that happened to me. they went through my bag, stole watches and like some crappy jewelry. >> this surveillance footage was actually used in a philadelphia courtroom last week. we got more footage from cbs 3 in philadelphia. one of those men was found not guilty of all charges. his name is victor solar.
4:04 pm
you can clearly see him in this surveillance footage walking up to the guy who is rifling through bags. his attorney says that he was actually a whistle blower in this case. >> he did nothing. he reported it. and his fellow workers attacked him for reporting it. >> these are people's things, you know, and you trust when you hand over your bag you're going to get it at your destination. that's just terrible. >> and now that you can't lock your bags unless some tsa approved lock which pretty much everybody has a key to anyway you're helpless. >> the guy you see in this video here, his name is andre cooper. he pled guilty to the charges of stealing along with one other who was an american airlines employee. the third guy entered a plea agreement. >> i think it's safe to say they won't be checking anybody's bags any time soon. >> it's frustrating because when you look at the airline policy they claim to be not responsible for this huge laundry list of things and the worst part, you paid to check that bag.
4:05 pm
>> yes. >> you paid $35 or however much it is to check your bag so some guy can rifle through and steal your stuff. >> i'm interested to see what you think about this next video. tell me who you think is right and who you think is wrong. we saw it on world star hip-hop and you see an argument between these two guys. here's the thing. they're friends. according to the poster, the guy in the orange shirt and orange hat had been drinking at a party. >> let me ride home. >> no, bro, because on some [ bleep ] you have a daughter. >> his friend in the black shirt is telling him, hey, man, you can't drive because the guy wants to drive not only these people home, but also his daughter. >> i'm going to say it then f the guy in orange had been drinking or is drunk if he is drunk, he should not be getting behind the wheel of a car. >> i swear to god i love you -- i swear to god. >> oh! >> right across to the face after saying, i swear to god i love you. >> it doesn't end there.
4:06 pm
>> oh. >> choked the guy out. puts him to sleep and lays him down on the pavement. >> honestly, as long as this guy wasn't fatally hurt, wasn't seriously injured in any way, i think the guy hitting the guy is right. >> if he really did happen to hurt this guy. >> oh, yeah. >> now you're in some hot water. >> where? >> no. he's okay. he's breathing. >> looked like he knew what he was doing with that chokehold. >> it was a loving, caring chokeout, yeah. the busy streets of turkey can be quite difficult to navigate, especially if you're in some sort of van. this guy decided to take a shortcut and found his way on to the train tracks of the tram and -- >> what? >> what? >> this is the stupidest accident i've ever seen. >> i think what's happened here, he accidentally made a turn on to the tracks by accident. >> right.
4:07 pm
>> and figured i'm going to find my way out somehow. before he could, he was boxed in by one train and head-on into another trai thank goodness this wasn't one of those ultrafast trains because these trains are moving along just as fast as the traffic. this accident could have been a lot worse. don't you think the guy could have just like scooted over there to the left. >> i think he could have done a lot of things. >> first thing was not pull on to the train tracks. >> yeah. what's one of the best things about the super bowl? >> the commercials. >> oh, yeah. >> well, doritos is taking it to the fans to help decide which commercial you might see on the big day. what will your favorite be? >> and meet the guy who puts things in his beard. this time. >> toothpicks. >> 1,000 toothpicks. >> see if the beard hold
