This I didn’t know. Beware loons if you came across a fallen tree. Evidently, they can spring back up and crush you, like some horror movie. Who friggin knew? A kid in Queensland is lucky to be alive after he was playing around a fallen tree when it sprang back up and crushed him under its roots. Fortunately, his quick thinking family members were able to use nearby vehicles and chains to lift the tree. He’s OK but had to nurse broken ribs and femur, two collapsed lungs and a squashed heart. Luckily, if a tree falls in Queensland you can hear a scream!

What could be more embarrassing for a moose than getting stuck in a tree? Probably nothing! The poor thing was just minding its own beewax, getting drunk on fermented apples, when suddenly she found herself good and wedged in the fork of the tree. Bummer! Enter a Swedish rescue crane , which managed to winch her to solid ground. Hmm, that will be one mighty hangover she’ll be nursing.
You know we all have to die some way, but rolling down a hill in a wheelie bin, gosh. John Peake was known as an “extreme dude” who liked better than to have a laugh, drink beer with the boys and look for an adrenaline rush. Unfortunately his life came to a sudden and tragic end after he and a friend lay on top of a wheelie bin and rode it down a steep descent in NSW. The bin hit a gutter and he flew headfirst into a tree.
