12:31 pm
hair. >> elf, i will cut you! well, that's one way to get around. just get your old paddle board. if you're late to work and there's flooding in the area, just get on that. except, you guys, that's not a paddle board. lest go back to the beginning of this whole scene. >> oh! >> this is in valencia, spain. this woman drove urn an overpass. the area was flooded. as you can see, her car got stuck, so she had to climb out of the car. you see the car start drifting away. city officials say witnesses say there was a sign there that said flooded. >> probably under water though. >> did you need a sign? do you need a sign there that says flooded? >> firefighters had to go get this woman out. now, they tried not to get her wet, even though she was wet, as you can see, right up just below her shoulders. there you see one putting her on
12:32 pm
on the helmet. >> that would be you. >> while snapchatting. we have another rescue with firefighters. this time, it's a 2-year-old girl that got stuck in a washing machine. not a lot of information, but they said we don't know how she got stuck in there. i can tell you. she's a 2-year-old. they get stuck in stuff. >> i'm fascinated by the very small, compact washing machine. kind of cool. >> they had to take it apart and use some it only took them 20 minutes. she was unharmed, but once again, chinese firefighters the gold medalists in rescuing people out of sticky, dark situations. >> seriously. 8 1/2 seconds of world record-break sky diving looks like this.
12:33 pm
divers that came together at sky dive arizona to set this world record of a vertical jump. that means that they're all vertically, with their heads upside down, falling down for 8.5 seconds. successfully setting that record. >> that's where i did my jump. i have to say, i would have been scared if there was that many people in the sky doing that. these women really have to know what they're doing to have that much traffic >> right. well, look at it this way. we took 63 people out of the studio to the car park and said grab hands and let go in eight seconds. we couldn't do it. because they were vertical, thern prothey were probably a lot faster. >> they say they reach speeds up to 170 miles an hour. perhaps because of the way they are vertically fall through the sky. now, in this cool video if
12:34 pm
the process. in fact, we get a sneak peek. the day of the event, more than 65 showed up, but not everybody made the cut. meaning, they had really high standards. it was a two-year process to get to this level. and you had women coming from all kinds of different countries to be part of this. >> it's definitely a dream for a lot of women to see something like this and take part in something like this. >> w world record. one of the biggest actual news stories out there is the propensity for fake news. people just cannot tell what is real or what is fake. i've got a perfect viral video example for you. this video comes out of japan. what's happening here is some sort of wizardry.
12:35 pm
cabbage to poison us. making it out of plastic. >> that's right. we have heard this. >> they're using this video as an example. it's gone viral. this is a guy demonstrating how they make fake food to then trick everyone around the world. if everyone has ever spent some time in asia, china or japan, you'll know what's going on is this guy is using wax to create the fake food that goes on display outside the restaurant. displays that are so good they look real. i recently saw this video on internet that shows fake, plastic cab bang. >> what's happening right now is people are faking the iing them with real things they think are fake. for example, this is a real cabbage. this woman has convinced everyone it's not real. >> it's not catching fire at all. exactly how the video showed.
12:36 pm
would have melted over the flame. this is not proof of anything. >> it is proof of something. people will accept anything on the internet. >> be careful what you eat. let's pull back the curtain on some old car parts. >> oh, lamborghini doors. sweet. >> but this guy isn't a mechanic. and he's not look for vintage car parts. he's looking for something and around this shop, sending rodents running. if you look at his shirt, you notice he's from the sunshine coast snake catchers. >> could be a viber. could be a shelby cobra. >> or an actual snake. >> he's actually inside this door here. he's a big red belly. >> it's inside the panel of the door? >> it is. it's got himself a nice hidy hole. >> it's a big one too.
12:37 pm
it's going to be a little tricky. going to take the door off. the snake's coiled itself up into what looks like the old speaker port maybe. so he gets out his stick. >> it's always a stick. and no gloves. they always do it bare handed. >> but he doesn't need anything. just pulls that snake right out. says it's full of grease because it's been running through the shop for a while. it's n it's been eating very well. in fact, the guy who owns this property may see a sharp decline in rodents. >> or increase now. >> we'll give him a wash off and find a nice swampy air why for him and get him away from the houses. >> the snake catcher wipes the snake down with a wet paper towel to get the grease off it as much as possible and then released it in a nearby woodland. it's a giant knit blanket. >> you're thinking, how do you knit that together? just with your hands?
12:38 pm
>> see how they do it. plus, abandoned boxes catch people's attention. >> they immediately called authorities. they immediately blocked off the air why, thinking there were bombs or something potentially dangerous. >> find out what's in the boxes next. for everyone to gather around. and you know what else i'm thinking? lights! some help. got it! and the ornaments might take a little bit more time. k bullseye?
