The couple had been snow camping on Jan. 30, but decided to further explore California’s Mendocino National Forest the next day. But the weather quickly turned south and the pair’s yellow Jeep Wrangler got stuck in the snow. They tried, and failed, to dig the SUV out. Keep Reading on Yahoo
A video shared last week on Facebook showed a female passenger sitting in the middle seat of a United flight and saying to a person on her phone that her seatmates were “so big.”
“Oh my goodness, I don’t know how I’m going to do this the next four hours. This is just impossible because they are squishing me,” she said in the video, adding, “At least they’ll keep me warm.”

Passengers on board a United Airlines flight from Newark, New Jersey, to Hong Kong had a lengthy stay on the tarmac after their flight was diverted to Goose Bay, Canada.
A medical emergency had originally caused the plane to divert. Once on the ground, the plane experienced mechanical issues.
Passengers were not allowed to leave the airplane because the Goose Bay Airport did not have a customs officer on duty during the overnight hours.
Overnight temperatures dropped to around 20 below zero. Passengers were finally able to get off the plane after 14 hours.

Nearly 300 passengers aboard the Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas cruise ship fell ill with a stomach virus after it departed Port Canaveral in Brevard County, Florida, on Sunday.
A total of 277 guests and crew members have been affected with a gastrointestinal illness, a spokesman for Royal Caribbean Cruises told NBC News on Wednesday.
More than 8,000 guests aboard the ship will receive a refund because of the outbreak, said the spokesman.
“We think the right thing to do is to get everyone home early rather than have guests worry about their health,” he added “Returning on Saturday also gives us more time to completely clean and sanitize the ship before her next sailing.”
A 2 year old child was injured after falling into a rhino exhibit Tuesday at the Brevard Zoo in Melbourne, Florida.
Brevard Zoo said in an emailed statement to ABC News the child fell during the “Rhino Encounter,” a “hands-on, educational experience with Brevard Zoo’s white rhinoceroses.” It also added, “During the encounter, participants and the rhinoceroses are separated by a series of steel poles, according to witnesses, the child stumbled and fell in between two of the poles and at this point, the snout of at least one of rhinoceroses made contact with the child.”
Rescuers are calling the rescue of a 12 year old boy a true “miracle.”
The boy was skiing at the La Plagne ski resort in a group of seven skiers when he was swept away in an avalanche.
Government officials say at least 222 people have been killed and 843 injured after a tsunami hit coastal towns on Indonesia’s Sunda Strait.\
“The tsunami was not triggered by an earthquake,” said one official. “It’s possible that it was triggered by an underwater landslide due to the eruption of Mount Anak Krakatau [that’s Child of Krakatoa]. At the same time there was high tide because of the full moon. So there was a combination of natural phenomena, tsunami and high tide.”
