Police warn people not to eat spoiled, trash-picked turkeys

Last week, the police department in Falmouth, Maine, had to warn residents to steer clear of black market Butterballs. A supermarket had to discard frozen turkeys that thawed out because of a mechanical failure. Police say the problem is that someone collected them from a trash bin with the idea of redistributing them. Police say people should beware of the black market turkeys because they’re dangerous to consume. They urged any consumers who came across them to put them in the trash where they belong. (AP News)


Firefighters who form a giant human pyramid on top of a moving fire engine cheat death when they smash to the ground

This is the heart-stopping moment firefighters showing off their acrobatic skills at a traditional parade cheat death after losing their balance and smashing to the ground. The nine men had used their ladders to form a human pyramid on top of one of their fire engines driving through the Mexican resort city of Puerto Vallarta at slow speed along streets lined with crowds. But as the vehicle neared the municipal council offices with its sirens sounding full-blast, the pyramid collapsed as the firefighters veered violently to the left and plunged several to the ground. The man at the top – who was fortunately wearing a helmet – could be seen desperately clinging onto his ladder before crashing through a palm tree at the side of the road. Three of the men below him missed the side of the fire engine and ended up injured on the ground. The incident happened during a traditional parade to mark Mexico’s Revolution Day, marking the start of a major ten-year armed struggle which transformed the country’s culture and government.

Cycling company causes outrage after suggesting women should buy electric bikes to keep up with their boyfriends

Cycling company Pinarello has pulled an advert that suggested women should buy electric bikes to keep up with their boyfriends after it caused widespread outrage. The brand has launched a new e-bike, called Nytro, and in the press release marketed it at people who are out of shape as they don’t have enough time to train, and women who want to keep up with men. “Nytro aims at a wide target, from the one that has no time to train but would never miss a weekend ride with friends, to women who would like to follow easily the men’s pace, or even the ones who desire to experience cycling as a new way of life, climbing easily and going downhill safely, enjoying every single minute on the bike,” the press release said. Many called the cycling company sexist after it suggested women can’t keep up with men. Pinarello has since pulled the ad. (Telegraph UK)
