A security camera in an alleyway of Ninghai in China's Zhejiang province captured this heart-stopping footage of mail couriers catching a two-year-old toddler after she fell from the fifth floor of a building. According to BBC and other news reports, the delivery men took notice of a little girl dangling from a window above after hearing her cries and promptly responded by cushioning her fall with outstretched arms. Two of the men suffered injuries from the impact, but the little girl managed to escape with just a minor wound on her face.
Los Angeles Police Department officers found themselves in a rather awkward situation at the Robotoki video game developer studio after an employee accidentally hit their security system's "armed threat" panic button. The office just happened to have a life-sized statue of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 character Simon "Ghost" Riley on display by the entrance, armed with a menacing-looking mock assault rifle. When police arrived on the scene and noticed the gun-wielding figure, they immediately stormed the building in a tense 15-minute standoff. After realizing the effigy was not a threat, the police reportedly left the building while laughing at the absurd incident.
