TRENDING VIDEO OF THE DAY:
There's video of a five-year-old named Sadie on YouTube, and her parents started recording after she found out her baby brother won't STAY a baby and she was DEVASTATED. Apparently they also explained DEATH to her for the first time, because she freaks out about that too.
Two women were trespassing on a railroad bridge in Indiana a couple of weeks ago when a freight train caught up with them.
The video from the Indiana Rail Road Company was released yesterday, and it’s horrifying.
You can hear the freight train whistling frantically as the women scramble in front of it to get off the bridge and the tracks.
Just as one woman looks like she’ll be able to jump to safety, the other one falls down right in front of the train, and her friend goes to help her. That’s when they disappear from view.
Bottom line: both women walked away from the incident. Okay, more like they ran away from it, and drove off in a nearby vehicle.
The local sheriff has identified them, and is now tracking them down, treating the incident as a crime.
After getting run over by a freight train, I can’t imagine that handcuffs are really going to scare these women…
Zac Efron is the first celebrity to appear on NBC’s new reality show, Running Wild with Bear Grylls, and for some reason, took that as the opportunity to open up about his struggles with alcohol and drugs.
It’s a two-day survival show, throwing the celebrity into the wilds to see how he or she can handle it. Bear is along for the trip, plus a camera crew.
And during the filming, Zac confessed to Bear that the whole Hollywood thing overwhelmed him.
He said the pressure of being out there with the press and the people had him reaching for a social lubricant.
Whatever it was, he didn’t name it, but you can bet that will be the new buzz word around Tinsel Town.
I fully expect a bar along Sunset to change its name to Social Lubricant before the week is out. You watch.
