signpost. >> the wing clips the signpost and that's the second crash you hear. that sends it off into the bushes. >> you're okay. kathy, you're okay, babe. >> there's not a whole lot of information on this video but we talked an experienced pilot and instructor who flies out of georgia. according to him he doesn't believe it was an engine failure. it could be a clutch failure. you do hear the engine continue to run, but the plane seems to lose power. >> i mean you know what, i'm surprised it was only that bad. >> this church's chicken in kansas city had been robbed one too many times, so when these three men walked in, showed a gun. obviously to rob the place. the manager, edward turner decided not on my watch. he reaches over and takes the
gun. >> whoa! . >> that was a ninja move, man. >> well that was awesome. and the set-up of the store is to his advantage. because they only had that small little area to stick their hands in. >> and with a quick move like that he was able to steal the gun and still be kind of separated from these guys. >> and that was really brave. the gun was pointed at him. once he reached, the trigger could have pulled and shot him. fortunately nobody was injured. they got away with no money. kshb talked to the manager after the last robbery and this is what he said. >> while we are alive we're painting a picture of what we want tomorrow to look like. and that's what i want tomorrow to look like. >> even if they say that's not what you're supposed to do, you go the to respect what he does. >> and you always say on the show, i wish the robber's mother recognizes him and turns him in. that's what exactly happened in this case because one of the guy's mom recognized him. >> even though there's a couple of guys doing the wrong them you
have people doing the right thing. people living by a moral code and i like do see that. >> the battle of good and evil being played out at church's chicken. [ church bells ringing ] >> this is an example of why dog is called man's best friend. >> this took place in china where the owner apparently fabted in the middle of a roadway. you can see security workers standing around. but look -- this dog refused to move from the owner's side. >> and it's a busy street, it's scary and a lot of noise and traffic. >> listen to the dog, it's barking like, wait a minute, somebody call 911, somebody go get help. i think the dog has seen a lot of episodes of lassie. >> so finally, the ambulance shows up to help this person. they're lifting the person into the ambulance -- >> are they going to leave the dog?
>> is the dog going to run into the street? >> take the dog with them. >> they have to put the dog in the ambulance. >> exactly. that's exactly what they did. they let the dog stay with the owner. >> waterworks, that's cute. >> i don't think a dog is going to be like, oh, cool, thanks for feeding me for eight years and taking me for walks, peace out. >> staying right there and probably in some ways, blocked traffic from hitting this person and -- ha do do you if your flight is canceled and you're stuck in an airport? >> cry? >> if you're one of justin bieber's back-up dancers, you dance to his hit song -- "beauty and the beast." ♪ ♪ ♪ >> they're not just like step-touching. this is full-on choreography.
>> it's like a real performance, they're doing it on the chairs and the pay phone and everything else in the terminal. >> this does beat it. >> surely everybody else was bummed out, so this is a show for everybody else that has to sit there. >> justin bieber is on tour in this area. >> look at all the people passing by. they're just walking by, like they don't even notice it. >> hopefully like tsa and security in the airport didn't get mad that they were doing this. >> that's really cool! cold, snowy roads, trucker beware. >> dude, big gate, red, road closed? >> see what the trucker didn't, next. ♪ ♪ this guy sings to the owner of a lost cell phone. >> i got to say -- i like the song.

factories that makes basically christmas trees. >> polyvinyl chloride. or pvcs to you and me. >> this is how they make a christmas tree that's six and a half feet tall. >> the shredded pvc is pulled through the coil that separates the needles and makes them bushy. >> the branches come out way too long for a christmas tree that would fit into your home or apartment. so they cut these by hand. >> they have robots to do everything and they do this by hand. >> they cut them this way because a mechanical cutting machine would flatten the needles back down. now all that's left to do is attach the branchs to the metal trunks of the trees and it becomes one of the one million trees made here at this factory in china. >> that's cool. you never really sit there and think how is my fake tree made.
