5-Children-Take-Flight-In-An-Inflatable-Castle-croppedIn 1992 an inflatable bouncy castle took flight with 5 children inside. To save them, a 21 year-old man grabbed one of the trailing ropes, climbed up to the castle 15 meters in the air and pulled each child out, before losing his grip and falling through the canvas roof of a dodgems tent. He survived but suffered an electric shock from the dodgems, while also sustaining a leg injury that required 52 stitches.

uiver-cropped80 years ago a town in Australia rescued a lost aircraft by turning the power on an off to spell the town’s name in Morse code. Residents used car headlights to help it land on the racecourse, pulled it out of the mud the next morning and sent it on its way to second place in an air race. Sadly, the aircraft later crashed in the Syrian Desert, killing all on board.
