It happens so fast but the reporter, Alex Savage, managed to jump out of the way in the nick of time. He posted a follow up video on Facebook assuring everyone he was okay and crediting his photographer, Chip Vaughan, with shouting the alert that saved his life.
Close Call!! Almost got hit by a car live on-air, heart still pounding.
Every once in a while, a story comes along and warms your heart.
Someone has been going around placing “scam” parking tickets on the windshields of Asheville, NC cars that have a QR code for online payment leading to a good old fashioned Rickroll. Ah, good, clean internet fun IRL.
Unfortunately, local police and residents are pissed, probably because they don’t get the joke. Transportation Director Ken Putnam was quoted as saying “it was kind of surprising to go to a link for a YouTube video, and then when I went to it, it was featuring some rock star that I didn’t know who it was.” Bless his heart. Apparently the culprit could be cited/arrested for littering if they’re caught, so stay frosty out there, Rickroller.
This mom and daughter are clearly taking inspiration from a viral picture of a young lady, her twin and her mom. No one could tell the difference between the mom and daughters. Apparently the same has been said of Donna Galt and her teenage daughter Mya.
Michelle Dobyne was having a quiet morning making breakfast when she discovered her apartment building was on fire. Speaking to the local news, she described her reaction:
“I got my three kids and we bounced out. Nuh uh, we ain’t gon be in no fire, not today!”
Dobyne and the rest of the residents are okay, but will be without power for at least the rest of the week, since the building’s electrical panels were destroyed in the fire. If any of the other residents are like Dobyne though, they’ll surely be in good spirits.
