AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Belgium, a storm brings down a stage at a rock festival. At least 3-people are dead and 70-people are still in the hospital. This is the fourth major stage collapse this summer. The most recent was at the Indiana State fair where 5-people were killed.

Seychelles Island – The beautiful beaches have some deadly sharks swimming nearby. Sharks have killed 2-tourists in the last two weeks, including a 30-year-old man on his honeymoon. Officials are telling people to stay out of the water.

United Kingdom – Another look at how things went down during last week's rioting in London. A mob shattered a store window with a fire extinguisher and when a guy tries to get them to stop; someone sprays another fire extinguisher right into his face blinding him. The crowd immediately breaks into the store.

United States – Someone snapped footage of a woman hitching a ride in the bed of someone's truck with a baby in a stroller. Someone dialed 911 and the lady was arrested. The 8-month-old she was babysitting is ok.

Australia – Meet Boris, the obese pig. His owners say they adopted him, thinking he was a miniature pig, but he just kept getting fatter and fatter. Boris is currently on a diet and he doesn't like it. “He'll do something destructive. Something that will really annoy me, just like a 3-year-old kid." Boris weighs about 500-pounds, since shedding about 50-pounds.
