Take A Look At This! A 100 Foot Car Fall, A Home Eating Sinkhole, And A Cat Returns Home

This car plunged about one hundred feet down the side of a cliff Sunday in the Angeles National Forest.

Its elderly driver was trapped for nearly twenty-four hours until he was spotted and rescued.

He was hospitalized with a broken wrist and injured ankle.

A sinkhole swallowed this mobile home in Florida Monday...

The residents had to make a quick escape through the window:

"We opened it up, pushed the screen out, threw my dogs out, threw a couple clothes out, and he grabbed me and yanked me out the window and all of a sudden it just collapsed."

Experts believe sinkholes are forming in Florida because farmers have been pumping more water to protect their crops from freezing in the recent cold snap.

Simon ran away while being evacuated ahead of Hurricane Ike in 2008.

His owner was studying in Paris at the time. She returned home for Christmas this year and, though Simon had been missing for more than a year, she found him in her neighborhood.

My heart just stopped, I said that's my cat, I know that's my cat. And sure enough as i crossed the street he didn't move, he came a little bit closer to me and i just started crying on the sidewalk.
