Brave Cops Pulled Man From Crushed Car To Say Goodbye To His Family derbyshireANTHONYCRANEAnthony Crane

Police officers who pulled a dying man from the wreckage of a road accident have spoken about the tragic incident.

Two police officers in Derbyshire came across the scene of an accident involving two cars while on their way to another call.

They immediately got out and started to help, noticing a man with serious injuries, including two broken legs, and was still in his car, unable to move.

The officers managed to free the man from his car before putting him on a stretcher as other officers arrived at the scene.

The 72-year-old man officers pulled from the wreckage was airlifted to hospital but didn’t survive. However, thanks to the officers’ efforts, they did manage to give him enough time to say goodbye to his family.

Speaking to Derbyshire Live, one of the officers, who did not give their name, said:

Although we didn’t save his life, the coroner at his inquest said that we gave him a chance to say goodbye to his family.

His injuries were horrific – I could not believe he was still conscious when we got to him, but the fact we helped him say goodbye to his family will always stick with me.

PC Robinson, one of the officers at the scene, said:

We were travelling to another job and went round a corner in the road and were faced with carnage.

We think that it happened just a few moments before we arrived. We had to call off what we were going to and deal with this incident.

There were two cars involved that had hit head-on, and one car was completely crushed.

Then the crushed car started to smoke. We took out our fire extinguishers and reported the incident. It took about five minutes for other officers to join us at the scene.

As the smoke and fire got worse, the officers made the difficult decision to pull the man out of the car. There was no way of saving the other driver.

PC Robinson added:

Unfortunately, there was nothing that we could do for the person in the crushed car except keep the flames under control.

But there was a risk that the flames would spread to the other car so we had to take the decision to pull the other driver out of the vehicle.

The unnamed officer said:

We attended because we are advanced first aiders. We went to the smashed car and we tried to fight the flames but we couldn’t get to him. So we concentrated on the one in the other car.

Since the accident, all five officers who attended the accident – PCs Robinson, Cocking, Meek, Parker and the unnamed officer – have been given a commendation by Derbyshire police Chief Constable, Peter Goodman, for their bravery and service.

At an awards ceremony for the entire constabulary recently, Chief Constable Goodman said:

This is an opportunity to say thank you for all that they have done, but it is also an opportunity to say thank you to the public too.

Our staff do brilliant things day in, day out and these awards are about going the extra mile.

With all the scrutiny police often face, it’s courageous acts like this which remind us what they’re here for.

People who love all things Disney can now add a piece of the magic to their home, as Disney have teamed up with Smeg to release a limited edition fridge. 

The appliance features a picture of Disney’s classic character, Mickey Mouse, reaching for the handle, adding some cartoon fun to your chilled food.

Smeg are a luxury retailer, meaning the fridge comes with a price tag to reflect it. At £1699, the appliance probably isn’t going to be something that’s picked up by people who occasionally take their kids to a Disney film, but will more likely be reserved for Mickey enthusiasts.

It’s probably for the best, as the limited edition fridge is indeed very, very limited. Only 90 of the decorated fridges have been created for the collection, to represent the 90 years since Mickey’s first appearance back in 1928. Adoring Disney fans will have to be quick!

Each fridge will display a limited edition silver plaque showing its unique number.

The fridge is advertised on the Smeg website, which reads:

To mark a year signified by landmark anniversary – it’s 70th anniversary as a company – pioneering Italian appliance brand, Smeg has teamed up with global brand, Disney, to create a limited edition commemorative fridge.

To celebrate the special nature of the partnership, there will only be a total of 90 fridges made for the limited edition collection.

The description continues:

Smeg’s iconic FAB28 fridge is brought to life by an original drawing featuring Disney’s most iconic character, Mickey Mouse, who is also celebrating his milestone 90th anniversary this year.

Both brands are synonymous with bringing the family together. For Smeg, at the heart of the company lies a focus on food, family and entertaining. Meanwhile for Disney, at its core lies the ability to bring people of all ages together, united in a sense of fun, laughter, optimism and hope.

Featuring a ‘True Original’ bespoke sketch of Mickey, each of the limited edition 90 FAB28RDMM3 fridges include an endearing image of Mickey playfully reaching for the fridge’s handle.

There’s been no information released yet on whether the fridge will be Smeg’s only product created in collaboration with Disney, but we can certainly hold out hope for some more affordable Mickey-adorned appliances, like toasters, kettles and microwaves.

Perhaps even other Disney characters too? I wouldn’t mind an Aristocats one!

You could end up with a fully Disney-themed kitchen!

Disney’s website reveals more about the mouse’s 90th anniversary:

It’s 90 years of the mouse that started it all.

Mickey Mouse is a global icon and a ‘True Original’ with universal appeal that brings people from across the world together.

As 2018 marks 90 years since his first appearance in Steamboat Willie on 18th November 1928, we’re celebrating the mouse that started it all with a global anniversary celebration!

The team up with Smeg is one of many collaborations in which Disney are involved in with the celebration of Mickey’s 90th anniversary.

The black and white mouse can also be found on special edition Oreo cookies, which are filled with birthday cake flavoured cream in honour of his birthday.

Fans of the mouse can also celebrate by downloading Mickey Mouse-filled phone wallpapers, donning Disney-themed clothes from Forever 21, and accessorising with #Mickey90 Pandora charms.

Disney have certainly gone above and beyond for Mickey’s anniversary – he’s probably the world’s most loved mouse!

Woman Takes Seven Minutes To Reverse Car Out Of Parking Spot

Parking can be difficult at the best of times. Even in an empty car park there’s a pressure to get inside those annoying white lines.

Then again, without the white lines it’d be total pandemonium. Chaos and mayhem would rule every time you needed to pop to the shops for a pint of milk. The lines may seem like they’re trying to confine us, but really they’re just there to help.

But still, backing out of a tight space can be a pain. And if you are unfortunate enough to find yourself in the perilous situation of squeezing your way out of such a space, well, my advice is take your time, don’t be afraid to readjust, and definitely don’t do what this lady did.

Check it out:

As the video shows, the poor car in the left hand space has already had its back door dented and its hub cap fall off, presumably by the driver in the right hand space who is desperately trying to manoeuvre her way out of the car park and escape.

You’d think the damage is done. And though on the surface it is, the worst is yet to come.

After trying to put the ruined hub cap back on the parked car, the driver goes for another attempt to back out of the space, only to wedge the nose of her own vehicle into the back door of the parked car once again.

Why she didn’t reverse in a straight line we’ll never know, it seems like there’s enough space to, but maybe there’s something off-camera that we’re not seeing. What we do know is that, after making the mistake for the first time, the mistake is unfortunately repeated again and again.

After trying to rub off the damage (though something tells me it’ll take more than spit to get that dent out), the driver finally frees herself from the torturous confines of the parking space, and drives away.

One person who was not trying to escape a parking space, but desperately try to hold one to one, was filmed in a car park in New York.

Instead of driving into it, however, a woman ran in to save the space for herself rather than let anyone else use it.

Footage filmed on another driver’s dashcam shows the young woman running over to the empty space just as the vehicle starts to drive into it.

Despite not being in a car, the anonymous woman then refuses to move, insisting her father had been waiting nearby for the spot in a white Jeep Compass.

As the video shows, though, the Jeep is nowhere to be seen:

With the woman declining to move, pointing to where the Jeep was supposedly waiting, the other driver begins honking their horn hoping she will eventually leave.

At this point the woman’s mother comes over to join her, standing by her side in the spot during the strange stand-off.

Fortunately, a kind motorist who was leaving the car park managed to diffuse the situation before things turned too ugly.

You would think, usually, the comradeship between truckers goes someway to pulling them through the long, lonely nights of nothing but empty roads.

The relationships built between drivers on the CB radio as they drive for hours and hours across countries must go someway to providing some sort of relief. Just as bus drivers always wave to one another, long haul truck drivers are also part of a select few with more than a job title in common.

Then again, we’ve all been on long, late night journeys that seem to go on forever. The kind where, no matter how fast or how far you drive, the road always looks the same, and you have that unbearable sense of never actually going anywhere.

Which, I’m assuming, happened to this driver, whose reckless driving and threats of violence over the radio ended in a bizarre bit of road rage, and the other driver informing the police of his actions.

Check it out:

Filmed in British Columbia, Canada, the driver who caught the footage on his dashcam, said:

I was driving an extended super B which has two trailers and 30 wheels. In all It’s over 100ft long. I had the cruise control set at 95km/h in a 100km/h two-lane highway. I was passed in an intersection by a loaded log truck.

My speed was ranging from 90-97km/h, changing over the slight grade changes, while in cruise. Bad words, reckless driving, threats of violence over the radio with lots of ‘trucker language’.

Still dark just before 6am, in heavy smoke from wildfires nearby and the log driver becomes aggressive after being high beamed.

He aggressively brakes down to 33km/h and for a while, won’t accelerate past 60, then swerves wildly across both lanes before stopping all traffic to kick my truck. Unwarranted road rage at 6am.

After a heated and lengthy exchange between the two drivers, the driver in front slams on the brakes, gets out of his truck and marches towards the other truck.

As he approaches the cab, however, he seems to change his mind, and instead of picking a fight with the other driver, he starts taking out his anger on the truck itself, kicking at the wheels are trying to pull at the front of the engine.

At the end of the video, as both drivers are back behind the wheel, the man behind the camera alerts the police to reckless actions of the driver in front.

Luckily, it seems there wasn’t any real damage to the trucks, just some bruised egos.

As we all know though, road rage can turn into instant karma pretty quickly.

Like it did for this guy:

It’s unknown what sparked the conflict, but it’s safe to say we know it ended.

As the green pick up truck came up in front of one car and got nearer to the silver car, the driver attempted to swerve into it. A downright reckless and dangerous move to say the least.

The attempt obviously backfired – the driver lost control, swerved across the freeway, almost hit another car in the process and slammed hard into a stone barrier.

Road rage is never pretty.
