Very often Russians park their cars in garage blocks that are sometimes located far from their houses and are built in lines. Well, this tradition has lead to a real spring “car” flood in Moscow. Some unknown company was installing a heating system not far from a block of garages, and afterwards two water wells “mysteriously” disappeared. Guess what? Over 150 car garages were flooded!

Who would have predicted that ordinary rain can do that with a river in a such idyllic place of Mag-Aso falls on Bohol Island, Philippines.
Everything was normal when suddenly the water began to rise very quickly, the waterfall started to fall heavily and the river current accelerated.
The two guys who were in the water at that time found themselves trapped under the waterfall. This continued for several hours ... The bodies of two guys were found a couple days later, 5 km from this place that seemed to be a little piece of paradise...
