Dubai Firefighters Reach New Heights

Firefighters in Dubai are set to become even more like superheros with the introduction of jetpacks.

Dubai Civil Defence recently launched the Dolphin, a jetski equipped with a jetpack and fire hose which will allow firefighters easy access to fires on boats, bridges and shoreline buildings.

The jetpack forces water at high pressure through the firefighters' boots, propelling them up into the air and allowing them to reach tall bridges.

The government's media office has released a dramatic training video of a firefighter racing through the city's canal on the Dolphin. He then takes to the air and with a hose over his shoulder manages to put out a pickup truck fire. As part of the Dolphin plan, they also intend to create floating fire stations to tackle blazes from the water.

The director general of Dubai's Civil Defence, Major General Rashid Thani Al Matrooshi, said the Dolphin will shorten response times during peak traffic hours, when the city state's traffic can prevent emergency vehicles moving quickly through the city.

London Traffic Police Sparks Brawl with Chasidic Jews

A traffic warden was bundled to the ground by a group of Orthodox Jewish men after he tried to run one of them over with his motorized scooter.

Astonishing video footage shows the warden mowing down one of the group, before his bike arches up and smashes down onto a man as he tumbles into the road. The shocking incident unfolded after the group confronted the warden as he tried to flee the scene in Hackney, north London.

It is not known how the confrontation erupted, but before the collision eye-witness footage shows the warden hit some of the men with his helmet - after wildly swinging it around like a weapon. After the warden is thrown from his scooter, footage shows the group, who appear to be Orthodox Jews, grappling with the man and holding him face down on the floor by his arms.

Police confirmed the incident happened at around 1.50pm on Monday.

The warden allegedly told the men he 'would come back later with my boys' after an initial altercation in which the group said they would 'report him to the council for misconduct'.

However, it was also reported the warden was 'surrounded by eight-to-10 Orthodox Jews' before the attack, with the group said to be 'following him' and 'blocking him into a parking space'. He is said to have tried to call for help via his radio but was drowned out by 'shouting' from the men. One witness told the Sun:  'He [the warden] revved up his bike and drove straight towards him at full speed. I couldn't believe what was I seeing.

Biker Crash Lands on Car Trunk

A motorcyclist who crashed into the back of a car on a Washington state highway had a lucky escape from injury when he ended up sitting on the car's trunk.

Brian Becton posted a dashboard camera video online showing the scene that unfolded last week Tuesday on Interstate 5 in Tumwater, Washington

The video shows a car traveling at a high rate of speed quickly brake when it approaches the rear of a slower-moving vehicle. A motorcycle traveling behind the car has trouble braking fast enough to avoid impact and the two vehicles collide, leaving the motorcyclist sitting on the trunk of the car.

The car's driver doesn't appear to initially notice the crash, causing the man sitting on the trunk to knock forcefully on the rear window.

The car pulls over a distance down the road and the motorcyclist is eventually seen pacing at the side of the road -- visibly upset, but free from serious injuries.

Orangutans Using Saw to Cut Tree Branches

Incredible footage reveals a female great ape using a saw to skilfully divide a branch in two.

The talented ape uses her right hand to hold the tool and her feet to grip the tree branch like a vice. She even blows away the sawdust to inspect her work like a true craftsman.

She previously learned this skills by watching builders at work in the region. When she spots a robot orangutan copying her behavior, the great ape immediately becomes more competitive.

The scenes were filmed in Borneo as part of the BBC One series 'Spy In The Wild', which features eerily realistic robots disguised as a series of different animals.

During the fascinating footage, the female organtutan is also introduced to the shows' robotic version of herself. 

After some moments of filming, the robot orangutan sits alongside her while performing the same task. Here facial expressions mirror those of the real orang using remote control and make her feel at ease, Rather than be put off, the female becomes competitive, furiously sawing to beat her rival.
