Real-Life Survivors

A senior citizen in Germany is lucky to be alive after exiting a parking garage the quick way.

The unidentified 80-year-old woman was pulling out of her space in the multi-level structure when she shot forward and broke through a concrete barrier.

Her vehicle catapulted from the second level and onto the street below. Miraculously, neither the woman nor her husband was injured.  But, the accident caused nearly $30-thousand dollars in damage.


A Guy Robs a Bank Because Jail Is Better Than Living With His Wife

This is one way to get out of a bad marriage.

A 70-year-old guy named Lawrence Ripple walked into a bank in Kansas City, Kansas on Friday afternoon, and passed the teller a note that said, quote, "I have a gun, give me your cash."  And the teller gave him about $2,900.

But instead of running away, Lawrence sat down in the LOBBY with his stolen money.  And the cops got there a few minutes later, since the police headquarters is on the same block.

When they asked Lawrence why he just sat there waiting for them, he explained that he WANTED to go to jail, because it was a better situation than living with his wife.

He even said he wrote out his robbery note in front of her before he stormed out of the house, just so she knew how he felt and what he was about to do.

He's looking at federal robbery charges. 


Couple That Was Stranded On An Island Were Rescued By A Giant SOS In The Sand

On TV and in the movies, if you are ever stranded on a deserted island, writing SOS in huge letters in the sand is a sure way to be rescued. But does it ever work in real life?

The answer is YES! 

About 2 weeks ago, a couple had boarded their boat and set-off on a “one-day trip” from one island to another --- but they got stranded on a tiny, uninhabited island in Micronesia.

Somehow, they survived on limited supplies for over a week when they decided their only hope would be for someone to rescue them.  So, they wrote SOS in giant letters on the beach….and it WORKED!

A U.S. Navy plane spotted their big "SOS" in the sand, and alerted the Coast Guard in Guam, who rescued them.
