• 500-pound goliath grouper eats shark as shocked Florida fishermen watch: 'He just sucked it in'

    There's a reason goliath groupers are called the garbage disposals of the sea - they eat everything in sight, including sharks apparently. A group of fishermen were able to witness a 500-pound grouper's "rare" meal during a fishing trip off the coast of Everglades City, Florida, last week. Captain Jimmy Wheeler with Everglades Fishing Company watched as someone in his group caught a 3-foot shark. As the fisherman started reeling the creature in, a large shadow appeared. Wheeler instantly knew what was going to happen next. "Watch this. You guys are going to freak out," Wheeler warned. "He just sucked it in. I don't remember ever seeing anything this crazy." - Michelle Wheeler Suddenly, an open-mouthed

  • Was that really a look of horror on Melania Trump’s face after shaking Putin’s hand?

    Maybe Melania Trump sees something in Vladimir Putin that her husband has yet to grasp because the U.S. president is, as critics say, besotted by the Russian leader’s steely, autocrat’s persona. A video has emerged showing the first lady’s face after shaking Putin’s hand during his summit in Helsinki Monday with President Donald Trump. The video has gone viral with some tabloids and people on social media saying the first lady betrays a look of horror. The video emerged Tuesday as Trump was back in Washington D.C., trying to backtrack on a bombshell comment he made during the leaders’ joint press conference after their meeting, the New York Times reported. Trump sided with Putin’s denial about Russia interfering in the 2016 election, saying to reporters, “I don’t see any reason why it would be (Russia)” that meddled.

  • Final moments of fatal plane crash caught on camera by passenger

    A small plane carrying passengers on a luxury air safari crashed outside Pretoria, South Africa earlier this week, killing two people and gravely wounding two pilots, the aviation website AIRLIVE reported. One passenger captured the crash on his cell phone in a harrowing video that surfaced Wednesday. In the video, the passenger is pointing his phone out a window of the plane. Smoke can be seen billowing from the left wing as a man says, "It's getting bad. This is getting very bad."   Fire can then be seen under the bottom of the wing, and the flames grow. As the plane begins descending towards the ground, it appears that the pilots cut the engines. The plane is still travelling at speed, and

  • Mom of 17-month-old who died in hot car thought she followed her routine. She didn’t.

    The mother whose 17-month-old baby boy died in a broiling car Friday during her shift at a Pembroke Pines hospital didn’t exactly forget to take him out of the car, according to a DCF incident report. She forgot to drop him off at day care before she went to work at Memorial Hospital Pembroke. “After finishing her day (the mother) proceeded to day care, where she believed she dropped him off that morning,” the report reads. “Upon being informed that (the boy) had never arrived at the facility, (the mother) began to realize what had occurred. “(The mother) drove back to the hospital where she worked and medical staff began to administer resuscitation efforts. (The boy) was transferred to a larger

  • Russian warship ‘carrying £100 billion in gold’ discovered off South Korea

    A South Korean salvage team has discovered the wreck of a Russian warship that was sunk in a naval battle 113 years ago and is believed to still contain a trove of gold bullion and coins worth 150 trillion won, or £100 billion. The Russian Imperial Navy cruiser Dmitrii Donskoi was discovered at a depth of more than 1,400 feet about one mile off the South Korean island of Ulleungdo. A joint team made up of experts from South Korea, Britain and Canada discovered the wreck on Sunday and used two manned submersibles to capture footage of the vessel, with the company behind the discovery promising to use a percentage of the money to fund the construction of a railway line linking Russia and South Korea through North Korea. The video includes images of extensive damage to the vessel caused in an encounter with Japanese warships in May 1905, along with cannons and deck guns encrusted with marine growth, the anchor and the ship’s wheel.  The identity of the 5,800-ton warship was confirmed when the crew of one of the submersibles were able to read the name on the stern.  “The body of the ship was severely damaged by shelling, with its stern almost broken, and yet the ship’s deck and sides are well preserved”, the Seoul-based Shinil Group said in a statement.  Launched in St Petersburg in August 1883, the Dmitrii Donskoi was designed as a commerce raider and fitted with both a full set of sails and a coal-fired engine. The ship spent most of its career operating in the Mediterranean and the Far East and was deployed to Imperial Russia’s Second Pacific Squadron after the Japanese fleet destroyed the majority of Russia’s naval power in the Far East in the opening salvoes of the 1904 Russo-Japanese War.  The Dmitri Donskoii was sunk in 1905 during the Russo-Japanese war Credit: Shinil Group The squadron was intercepted by the Japanese fleet in May 1905 and decimated at the Battle of Tsushima. Assigned to protect the transport ships at the rear of the formation, the Dmitrii Donskoi managed to evade the attacking force, but was later intercepted steaming for the Russian port of Vladivostok.  Haul: the Imperial Navy Cruiser Dmitri Donskoii sank more than a century ago with - it is thought - 5,500 boxes of gold bars and coins still on board Credit: Shinil Group Around 60 of the 591 crew were killed and further 120 injured before Captain Ivan Lebedev anchored off the island of Ulleungdo and ordered his men ashore. The following morning, May 29, 1905, the ship was scuttled offshore and the crew were taken prisoner by Japanese landing parties. Captain Lebedev later died of his wounds.  There are reports that the Dmitrii Donskoi was carrying the fleet’s funds and went down with 5,500 boxes containing gold bars as well as a separate haul of 200 tons of gold coins. The gold was being stored in the ship's holds to stop the Japanese seizing it. Shinil Group estimates the gold would have a total value today of £101.3 billion.  Half of any treasure found on board will be handed over to the Russian government Credit: Donskoii The company says it is aiming to raise the ship in October or November. Half of any treasure found aboard the vessel would be handed over to the Russian government, the company said, while 10 percent of the remainder will be invested in tourism projects on Ulleungdo Island, including a museum dedicated to the vessel.  A portion of the rest of the treasure will be donated to joint projects to promote development in north-east Asia, the company said, such as a railway line from Russia to South Korea through North Korea.
