4:31 pm
fate that put this forecast in the right place at the right time. a man tries to ditch a state trooper. >> and is pinned by the trooper's car. >> see why you don't outrun the long hood of the law. >> have you ever been a beer chugger? >> like this? i didn't think so. >> just pop the top. >> and what is that erie sound. it's an internet mystery but steven solved part of the puzzle. >> it's time to kick off our show with video nick found. >> we found this at kcoi, a semi truck crashed into a bmw. the car was perched on the edge of the bridge. inside that bmw is a 36-year-old
4:32 pm
mother, her 10-year-old daughter and a 10 week old baby. that semi truck went over the railing of a bridge, plummeted 50 to 100 feet into the river bottom below, burst into flames. the driver of that truck was killed in the accident. firefighters are doing everything they can. as they are trying to remove the people from the car, they could feel people slipping. stuck in traffic were cbs, construction engineers of the navy. >> they came up and wanted to know if they could help with traffic or something else. they had a large forklift with them that we were able to obtain and have them use so they could support the bmw as it was teetering on the side of the bridge. >> it can't fall. >> this the most haunting shot. you can see the mother peeking out of this mangled, twisted wreck. >> i can't believe the three occupants survived this crash. >> what are the chances that somebody coming that direction
4:33 pm
with a forklift thing like this and willing to help out. >> just by chance they happened to be coming through. it was actually good luck on our part. >> the mother, the 10-year-old, and the 10 week old baby all with nonlife threatening injuries. >> miracles do happen. no way to describe that. sometimes married couples renew their vows because their marriage might have lost the spark. like this story we saw in the uk. this is barry and ann watson. they were married in 2002 but the marriage lost its luster over the year, you know. things weren't going so good. so they renewed their vows in 2011 except this time barry was named jane. barry, as you see here on the left, had himself a sex change and became jane, and the marriage is still going as a same sex relationship.
4:34 pm
>> what? >> yeah. barry said she thought he was cheating on her with another woman but turned out he just wanted to be one. >> they looked happier where barry was a guy. >> complete sex change with all the works. >> i believe so. ann says she does miss barry at times. now she gets to talk to jane about hair, clothes, and makeup. she'll love the person whether that person's name is barry or jane. >> what does she miss about barry? does she say? >> i would think it would be the really main part of barry she's really missing. >> a little bit of a weird turn. >> i imagine they may say love is love no matter what form it comes in, whether it is in the female or male form and they go with it. >> romantic nick calderon here. >> thank you very much. i have two rescue videos for you.
4:35 pm
one is a couple years old that's trending again. >> come on, buddy. >> look at him. he's like oh, gosh, please help me, i'm freezing. >> he's got those puppy dog eyes you can't resist. >> i want to jump in this video and save the guy. >> look at this little dog. this is charlie. charlie is stuck in the indian river in new york. charlie fell through the ice and all these people come to the rescue. you can hear this little dog charlie wimpering. >> you know, i'm glad to see that professional rescuers are attempting this. some people are so in love with their pets, they will try and jump in after them and then they wind up getting in trouble. >> once they got him out of the icy river, they take him and start treating him for hypothermia. they treat him just like they would a person they rescued from the ice. >> they wrap him up nice and snug. >> he's not shaking that water off. he's like blanket around me
4:36 pm
quick. >> this video is 2 years old. it's trending again. it popped up because it's so darn cute. charlie made a full recovery and likes to go hang around the elementary school and say hello to the kids. >> it's going to get taken away by the currents. the next rescue just posted over the weekend. a few guys on a trip to colombia, they are rafting down, pretty tame rapids, but a moving river nonetheless. you can see off in the distance there's some krause right there grazing. look down toward the shoreline. a little cat fell right into the water, slipped through the mud and fell into the water. so the people on this raft, they spring into action. three different guys from this raft, they all dive in together and they all go to this cat's rescue and get him out of the water and back safely to his herd. >> i have to give them credit. they wasted to time springing to action. >> all for a little calf.
4:37 pm
two. >> russia. >> utah. >> i found this story on abc 4 in salt lake city where the dash-cam video of a routine traffic stop goes really bad. a utah highway patrol pulls over this guy for speeding of the police officer asks for his id. the driver turns over what turns out to be a fake driver's license. as you can see the guy took off. he's speeding through the highway, loses control of the truck, veers off of the freeway. the guy tries to escape, tries to jump over a fence, and is pinned by the trooper's car. >>his bonetry to bail out of his truck. i'm thinking maybe he thought if i jump out the police officer will jump out and then i've just got to beat this guy in a race.
4:38 pm
>> the police officer did say he tried to slow down the car but because of the grassy area he was going over he wasn't able to control the car. >> was this suspect hurt by being pinned. >> minor injuries. immediately after arrest he was taken to the hospital for medical clearance. now he is under arrest. >> now he's being arrested for evading and running and all those other -- >> come on our show once in a while. realize that they are not going to get away if they try to outrun the cops. >> always turns out bad. a boxer puppy meets a herd of cows. we dissect the meaning to a lot of sniffing. >> sons of anarchy, hell's angels. >> now this band of bikers with one guy who might be a bit too

4:44 pm
wimpy is one of the most popular fast-food chains in south africa. they have a full braille menu. they set out to let the visually impaired community know about the menus they provide. they visited the three main braille institutes in south africa, braille services, a lewis braille house and blind sa. with a tiny little pair of tweezers they put messages on all of the sandwich buns in braille using sesame seeds. the messages were description of the burgers they were about to serve to some blind indiduals. >> wow. >> those little sesame seeds, ough, they fall off all time. >> i think they were very meticulous making sure there were no missing parts. you can see the buns coming out of the oven. they made 15 buns to serve to 15 individuals at these three different braille institutions.
