What Happened To This Aircraft At 10,000 Feet Will Make You Stick To Taking Trains

If you’re making a list of the worst things that could happen during a flight, a hole being blown in the side of the airplane probably tops it. While it’s an unlikely scenario, this is exactly what happened on a flight that was leaving Somalia’s capital city of Mogadishu.

Shortly after liftoff, an explosion of unknown origin tore a hole in the side of the plane near the fuselage.

Luckily, the plane was at a low enough altitude (about 10,000 feet) to make an emergency landing.

Initial news stories reported that at least one person was killed in the explosion, and two more were seriously injured. An official count of casualties, however, has still not been released by authorities.

What we do know is that the majority of the passengers escaped with no serious injuries.

Even scarier than the pictures is this video that was taken shortly after the explosion. It was recorded by Awale Kullane, the U.N. Ambassador of Somalia.

Well, that is utterly terrifying. Needless to say, officials are still investigating the cause of the explosion. In the meantime, I suggest that you all pay attention to the in-flight safety demonstration the next time you travel.

Watching This Guy Turn Himself Into Creepy Statues Will Give You Nightmares

Being a horror junkie, I have come across all kinds of terrifying photos and videos.

Though many of them have certainly creeped me out, most haven’t actually gotten under my skin and haunted my dreams. That’s because they weren’t even half as unsettling as this freaky performance.

In his work entitled, “Transfiguration,” French artist Olivier de Sagazan sculpts his face into monstrous statues that look like they came straight out of the “Silent Hill” games. When you see it for yourself, I’m sure you’ll agree with me when I say that I definitely wasn’t expecting to come away this disturbed.

The sounds make it so much worse.

Well, I’ll be lucky if I get any sleep after seeing that. Anyone have a night-light I can borrow?

This Video Shows How A Deadly Spider Uses Its Web To Catch Reptiles

When it comes to the world of spiders, there are so many species out there that can cause you a world of pain. One of the freakiest spider species of all, however, is the Australian redback spider. To illustrate just how devious these critters can be, I present to you the following footage.

It was taken last year by Jennifer Fox and her husband as they were packing up to move. When they entered their shed to grab a few things, they saw several western brown snakes caught in the web of a little redback spider.

(via The Daily Mirror)

Well, I’m officially horrified. What’s even crazier is that these snakes are also notoriously dangerous creatures. Nothing is sacred, friends.

One Spider Didn’t Take Too Kindly To This Guy’s Attempts To Capture It

When your house becomes infested with massive spiders, the best course of action is to call a reputable exterminator. The absolute last thing you should try to do is catch them.

That’s a fact of life that YouTuber leokimvideo learned when he tried to catch the giant huntsman spider that wandered into his home during mating season.

All of the nope!

I think I’d just burn my house down and start over. Australia, you never cease to shock and amaze me with your unrivaled creepiness.

They Were Filming An Iguana When This Craziness Happened…What The Hell?

The “Planet Earth” filming crew was recently shooting footage of hatchling marine iguanas when they got a terrifying surprise.

Although snakes are known to eat iguanas, they typically hunt for their prey alone. It’s part of their nature that we all take for granted. Slippery, sneaky loners…that’s how I’ve always thought of snakes, until I saw this video. What the crew caught on camera is a never-before-filmed snake behavior. Take a look.

As a small iguana runs up a rock, a pack of snakes springs from the shadows. Incredibly, this is the very first time snakes have ever been filmed hunting as a group.

A Symptom Of Rabies Is Hydrophobia… And It’s Way More Terrifying Than You Thought

In most parts of the Western world, you no longer have to worry much about catching rabies. Sure, the virus is still out there, but it’s nowhere near as common as it used to be. Sadly, that’s not the case in other parts of the world.

When humans contract rabies, the disease is devastating and almost always deadly unless immediate action is taken. Among the many symptoms of rabies is a severe aversion to water known as hydrophobia. Those suffering from rabies often experience extreme difficulty swallowing, and they panic when presented with liquids. Watch what happens when this hydrophobic man tries to take a drink.

WARNING: This video is not for the faint of heart.

No one on the Internet knows exactly what happened to the man in this video. Judging by his symptoms, however, the prognosis seems pretty grim.

Watching This Guy Feed His Pet Cockroaches Is Just Too Gross To Handle

As much as we’d like to think that cockroaches are the scourge of the Earth and that they serve no purpose, that’s sadly not the case.

In fact, they’re quite useful to reptile owners. As you can imagine, cockroach farming is not necessarily a popular hobby, so the few brave souls who do so willingly are hard to come by.

One of the most popular cockroach farms in the United Kingdom is the Roach Hut. To give you a sense of what life is like at this charming establishment, they have a whole YouTube channel dedicated to demonstrating how they go about their business.

In the video below, they show what feeding time looks like for roaches. Consider yourself warned, because this footage is nasty. Can you get through the whole video?

Yeah…my skin is crawling after enduring that nonsense.

I’m just glad my apartment is free of these buggers. I’m aiming to keep it that way.

When An Underground Water Pipe Explodes, You’re Going To Be In For A Bad Time

When people say you need to be a vigilant driver, you really should take them seriously. While accidents aren’t a guarantee, anything that does go wrong while operating a large, moving piece of machinery is instantly 10 times more dangerous than it would be otherwise. Even a moment of distraction can lead to disaster.

Unfortunately, though, being a cautious driver can only get you so far. There are just some circumstances that are truly too random for you to predict. Case in point: what happened to the poor driver in the video below. They’re being careful and watching the road, but there is no way they ever expected this…

Just wait for it.

Oh man, I really hope they were up to date on their car insurance. Freak accidents like this scare the heck out of me.

This Shark Broke Into A Cage…With A Diver Still INSIDE

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — I’m terrified of the ocean.

Of course, sharks play a big role in that fear. While I understand that they aren’t as bad as people paint them to be, there’s no way I’d ever go swimming anywhere near them. I just can’t risk something like this happening.

During a recent shark cage diving trip in Guadalupe Island in Mexico, things went very, very wrong for diver Ming Chan. As he was watching great white sharks that were swimming just outside of his cage, one of them lunged at the bait tied there and broke in.

While the man who filmed all of this says that the shark was likely just confused and couldn’t swim backwards, that doesn’t make this any less horrifying.

Luckily, Chan is a very experienced dive instructor and reacted quickly by swimming to the outside of the cage’s bottom as this happened.

He is completely unharmed and says that this experience has definitely not scared him away from future diving trips. He is a much braver person than I will ever be.

This Interview With The Night Stalker Will Make Your Blood Run Cold

During the 1980s, one of the most terrifying places in the U.S. was Los Angeles, and it wasn’t because of the traffic or the ridiculous cost of living. A man named Richard Ramirez, also known as the Night Stalker, successfully brought the terror. His capture proved to be one of the most monumental days in the city’s history, but he took 14 innocent lives before that happened.

Shortly thereafter, a reporter sat down with him to discuss his horrific crimes. What he had to say will give you chills.

He was found guilty on all counts and sentenced to death. Although he died from cancer before his execution, the world got exactly what it needed when he took his last breath.
