Four Palestinians are lucky to be alive thanks to Israeli soldiers after being involved in a car accident, the IDF Blog reported.

The Israel Defense Forces said that a car accident in the Jordan Valley injured four Palestinians on Saturday, including a two-year-old toddler who suffered moderate injuries.

Rescuers from the IDF’s 669 Airborne Rescue and Evacuation Unit evacuated the infant and two severely injured passengers to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital by helicopter. The fourth victim, who was lightly injured, was evacuated to a hospital in Nablus.

“The severely injured passengers were Palestinian residents of the area whose car flipped over due to speeding,” Jordan Valley Brigade Medical Officer Lieutenant Moran Gershoni said.

“Our rescue effort was very difficult, because the vehicle fell into a wadi (valley), and we needed to rescue the passengers on foot using stretchers,” she continued. “We arrived at the scene within 10 minutes and then carried out our life-saving procedures on site.”

Last weekend, IDF medical teams in the Jordan Valley responded to more than 10 emergencies, a record number for soldiers stationed in the region. Car accidents happen often in the Jordan Valley, where IDF medical forces typically handle at least one emergency per day.

A man told police that he needed a lot of Red Bull, in order to have energy to find his girlfriend who changed her number.

The 20-year-old man of Yancheng, Jiangsu Province, in China, was arrested in Nanjing, after he had stolen almost 400 cans of Red Bull, in the four days of a grueling pursuit to find his runaway girlfriend.

The young man, named Zhang, was studying in Beijing, when he met a young woman online. He fell in love with the woman and claimed she was his “soul mate.”

The woman lived in Nanjing, so he took his savings of 15,000 yuan (about $2,440) and traveled to be with her.

Zhang blew most of his money to woo the woman and to buy her expensive gifts. Over time, he began to run out of money. That's when the woman, who claimed to be his girlfriend, changed her phone number and disappeared.

Zhang was devastated when he could not find her, but he knew he could not go home and ask for financial help because his parents thought that he was studying in Beijing, which was no longer the case.

Alone and unable to find suitable work, Zhang became homeless and was living on the streets. One day, staff at a supermarket realized that cases of Red Bull were missing from their shelves.

Video surveillance revealed that a young man had been stealing many cases of Red Bull. Staff recognised Zhang as the thief. Zhang told police that he needed energy to keep looking for “his girlfriend,” who he still insisted was his “true love.”

Zhang said he drank up to 10 cans of Red Bull in one day to keep himself energized during the exhausting search.

(Scroll down for video) A woman who owns the title to the world’s biggest hips, likes her assets.

Mikel Ruffinelli, 39, of California, is a married mother of 4, who lives an active lifestyle.

Ruffinelli was an athletic teenager, who had no problems with her weight. She first began to notice that her hips were growing at age 22, just after the birth of her first child.

Ruffinelli said that with every child, her hips grew wider until she was unable to fit through a regular door. Although her waist measures 40 inches, her hips are a staggering 100 inches. It is the biggest in the world.

“When I walk on the street, people pull out their cellphone and take pictures or videos of me,” Ruffinelli said.
Some people ask if they can take a picture with her, while others just take some from her backside when she passed them.

“Some people assume that I had surgery to improve the shape of my body, but it's all natural,” she insisted. Ruffinelli has no plans to lose weight, but she admitted that her size has occasionally caused problems.

Ruffinelli lives in Los Angeles, with her husband Reggie Brooks, and their 4 children. “I love her shape, but it was her sweet personality that first attracted me,” her husband said.
