A 4-year-old boy was standing near the store when a car driver lost control over the vehicle and was approaching the boy at high speed.
It is not known exactly what happened, but the driver of the car hit the boy, sending him flying down a flight of stairs before he fell, after a few seconds he got up and ... safe and sound run off crying to his dad who didn’t know what happened until the next day.
Everything happened in just few seconds.
Who said that miracles don’t happen ;)

Padaung. Long-neck women (35 pics)

Padaung or Kayan Lahwi is a group of the Karenni people, a Tibeto-Burman ethnic minority of Burma.
Women start wearing the brass neck coils at the age of five. Each coil is replaced with longer coils as the weight of the brass pushes the collar bone down and compresses the rib cage. Contrary to popular belief, the neck is not actually lengthened; the illusion of a stretched neck is created by the deformation of the clavicle.
Many ideas regarding why the coils are worn have been suggested. One of them is the coils might be meant to protect from tiger bites.
Kayan women, when asked, acknowledge these ideas, but often say that their purpose for wearing the rings is cultural identity (one associated with beauty).

A concert was planned on Moscow last Saturday but it had to be cancelled. Why? Well, the reason is simple. As we can clearly see on the pictures, the roof collapsed on the stage itself. So, the concert obviously was cancelled and bands such as Scorpion or Alice Cooper had to cancel too. For more photos, go inside the post.

Edit.
As it says in the author’s portfolio, it’s a “modern spin on vintage tales with twisted turns”.
Very creative and original work.

Three small children don’t deserve to live in conditions like this.
Their parents have turned their apartment into a real dump, there is no other word for it.
And if one of their neighbors did not call the police, who knows how long would these children suffer from this.
The parents were sentenced to three years, and frankly, good for them ...

She managed to combine the love for animals with her passion for painting, which resulted in a wonderful series of animal paintings. When she drew them, the artist has not only managed to capture the spirit of each of them, but also to convey individuality, grace and strength of each animal.

The owners of these houses stood up to the various companies wanting to buy their properties.
However, these companies were not bothered, they have solved the problem in their own way because people don’t count for them.
