tv Right This Minute FOX April 22, 2013 9:30am-10:00am PDT
hi, everybody. i'm beth troutman. we have the videos you have been looking for, "right this minute." an amazing avalanche caught on camera. >> that thing just cleared the path. >> there are no trees, nothing. >> find out what the people who captured the video were doing that put them in the right place at the right time. an illegal u-turn on thedoe. >> you can't go that direction anyway. >> i don't know where he could have been turning. >> see what the driver who
caused the crash did next. this may be the most creative birthday gift ever. >> this is impressive. >> cool. >> how a one up led to an entertaining video. and when you are given a warning to stay away from a wild animal, you probably should listen. >> oh! >> meet the monkey with an appetite for technology. winter is turning to spring in many parts of the northern hemisphere. that's creating problems, especially in the higher altitudes. check out this video. what you are seeing is an avalanche at the top of the french alps that was so intense it caused a landslide at the base. you see the snow at the top as the camera pans up.
as it falls down the cliff, it hits the rocks, the dirt, the soil and begins taking that down with it. it looks like a giant water fall racing toward the river. >> you know what it looks like? the people taking the video are on the side of the mountain and happen to be in the right place at the right time. it's going to show you a group of rock climbers that happen to be in the area. look. >> that thing just cleared the pass. there are no trees, nothing. >> that snow has to go somewhere. >> right. experts are saying the reason it's happening is because the snow begins to melt and creates a problem. you are right, it has to go somewhere. it creates a land dam in the small river, the creek at the base of the mountain. there's something beautiful about as it settles. you can see a rainbow. >> more of those bad people doing bad things videos.
this is from philadelphia. two men with masks walk up to the door of this convenience store. one of them as soon as he enters the door, raises a gun, points it at the attendant while the other one hangs out as a lookout. he demands money from the attendant. when he's unable to get the money, he runs out of the store. the suspects ended up getting away. the philadelphia pd needs help identifying these men. hopefully someone will recognize the logos on their jackets. they seem to be wearing the same logo. >> weird. they walked in, they put a gun to an employee's head, walked out. they didn't get anything. strange. >> nope. nope. they got away from nothing. the video is from the u.k. at a small store. the man pays for tick tacks, takes change, comes back with chocolate bars to pretend like he's going to pay for that. when that happens, he ends up
reaching over for the till. >> look at this. >> the clerk starts beating on him. the guy manages to get the drawer out of the register. the clerk wrestles the guy out the door. gets him to drop the cash drawer. the guy ended up getting away with undisclosed amounts of cash. >> a brave cash ear. >> police are looking for this guy, too. this video is a perfect example of why you should not make an illegal u-turn, especially on a busy highway. >> a highway u-turn? who does that? >> you are about to see. watch. >> oh! >> you see this van going down, proceeding as he should. then the van slows down and makes a left and hits the motorcyclist. where he's made a left, you can't go that direction anyway. i don't know where he thought he was going to drive. he would have been driving the
wrong way. you think the car is going to pull away. no. he pulls up, gets closer to the person on the motorcycle and renders the person aid. it was his fault the guy got knocked to the ground. >> at least he didn't drive away. he could have done that, freaked out and driven away. he did the right thing which was come over and help him. >> i don't know where he thought he was going, making that u-turn. >> maybe he was going to park in the white-lined area. maybe he had an emergency, but, who knows. hope the guy is okay. this is not the 1950s. apparently this video is from current times. this is aboard a middle east airlines flight. look at the apparent lebanese woman decided to do. she's saying what better time to light up than right now, up in
the air. a cigarette on an airline, which you haven't been able to do for quite some time. she is being given a talking to by the flight attendant here who is not happy about the smoking. the woman yells back at her. i don't speak lebanese. i imagine she's saying could you please bring an ashtray because there aren't ashtrays here. listen to her. >> she's pointing, how am i going to put it out. >> how am i going to ash this? she continues smoking and puts it out in the end. for quite some time, you have not been able to smoke on airplanes. >> the guy beside her is looking in amazement like what is happening here. this day and age, now is not the time to make an argument with the flight crew. >> nope. >> maybe she hasn't traveled since the mid-80s.
