A dashboard camera of a Taiwanese driver captured the terrifying moment of TransAsia flight GE235 crashing into a river near the country’s capital city of Taipei. The chilling footage shows the plane, a turboprop ATR-72, rolling sharply to the left as it descends over an elevated bridge. TransAsia Airways has confirmed in a Facebook post that the plane carried 58 people — five crew members and 53 passengers. At least 13 people died in the crash.
(Watch the video below…)
The incident was also confirmed by Taiwan’s Aviation Safety Council who issued a statement that there had been a plane crash at around 10:45 AM local time.
Xinhua News: 27 people were rushed to hospital after being rescued from the plane’s fuselage.
The dramatic video and pictures cropping up on social media are staggering; footage of the crash was caught on several drivers’ dashcams.
The taxi cab that was hit by the plane’s wing.
In the dash cam footage, which was tweeted by Twitter user Missxoxo168, the plane’s wing appears to have hit a car traveling along the expressway. Several photos taken by Taiwan’s TVBS showed the taxi cab on the same stretch of road with extensive damage that could have been caused by collision with the plane’s wing.
Survivors were rescued from the river where the plane’s fuselage submerged.
Some of the witnesses captured several footage and pictures from the site of the crash where rescuers are busy on their rescue efforts to extract passengers from the crashed plane, three hours after the country’s aviation authority said there had been a plane crash. Some photos taken by TVBS reveals most of the plane was submerged in water, and rescuers used inflatable boats to reach the fuselage.
Watch the Terrifying Video:
This is the 2nd TransAsia ATR-72 turboprop plane to crash in Taiwan in just six months. In July last year, at least 48 people were killed when TransAsia flight 222 crashed in Penghu, off the coast of Taiwan, after a failed landing attempt due to typhoon conditions. These recent two fatal crashes was a serious blow to the Taiwanese aviation industry, which is still currently working for changes on its safety record after several high-profile crashes in the 1990s and 2000s.
This Newborn Baby was Flushed Down The Toilet. How the Fire-fighters Save Him? Unbelievable!
What kind of mother would do such cruel thing to her own baby. Thanks to the Firefighters for saving this angel.
One of the most horrible stories that I always hate to hear is about depriving a newly born baby of his rights to live a wonderful life. In our present society where almost everything is being accepted no matter how immoral and wrongful it may be, the notion of life is construed to something dispensable. People use facts and science to justify the apparent truth that they want to believe in. And none of the moral concerns are being considered. Hence, from time to time, babies are aborted, abandoned and sometimes left behind by the parents because they just feel they are not ready to have one yet or whatever absurd reasons they have. I always pray for those babies who are aborted and I hope that those who are abandoned and left behind can still be saved.
Just like what happened in this video. A baby was flushed down in the toilet and found out to be stuck in the pipe of the drainage. What kind of mother would do such cruel thing to her own baby. That baby has the right to live! Fortunately, firefighters were immediately informed about the incident. And they did not waste any time to pull out the baby from the pipe because they knew every second counts.
Watch the Incredible Rescue of the Firefighters!

What They Discovered in a 2,000 year old Shipwreck Could Prove Atlantis is REAL!
Whoa! The legend might be real after all…
One well-known story of Plato, a great ancient Greek philosopher, is the destruction of the ancient civilization of Atlantis. The story dates back over 2,300 years ago, but still it remains famous and continuously being narrated. Why? James Romm, a professor of classics at Bard College in Annandale, New York asserted that the tale of the lost city of Atlantis is a story, though uncertain of its truthfulness, captures the imagination in which he further added that it has various fascinating components that people would surely enjoy to imagine. Many have been fascinated by the legend. It has been believed that Atlantis was rich in gold, silver and other precious metals and has once become a great naval power.
Map of Atlantis drawn by 17th century scholar Athanasius Kircher.
Many historians and archeologists have painstakingly searched for clues and evidence of the existence of Atlantis but to no avail. Even scholars and scientist have tried to prove that Atlantis is real. Most of them failed to prove its existence. The story of Atlantis has still remained a myth or just a product of one’s great imagination.

I'm not sure what's more heartbreaking in this story. Writing a whooping $975 million divorce check or having someone who reject it. The said check was apparently not enough for a divorce settlement especially when your ex-husband is a filthy rich oil tycoon.
Harold Hamm, the billionaire CEO of Continental Resources, is now the talk of the town after his hand-written massive check was refused by his ex-wife, Sue Ann Arnall, in their ongoing divorce saga.
Here’s how the $974 Million Dollar check looks like.
