AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Canada, at least 1-person was killed in Goderich, by a powerful tornado. Winds clocked at 186-miles per hour. One person said, “You could hear everything falling on top of you and I honest to god thought either I was going to die or it was going to be a long time before they dug me out." Homes were destroyed and cars flipped over. Forty people were rushed to the hospital.

Poland – Six people were killed in two separate plane crashes. The first plane flew into a house, the four passengers aboard died. And were told the people in the house jumped out of windows to escape the flames. The other crash involved a plane returning home from an air show. An investigation into both incidents is underway.

United States – A tragedy during an air show in Michigan. A "wing walker” fell to his death while hundreds of people watched. The daredevil tried to maneuver from a plane to a helicopter when he plummeted several hundred feet.

Also in the U.S. a llama is rescued. The animal reportedly got stuck in a muddy pond for days. Firefighters responded first and then they called the local zoo. Once she got on dry land, the llama was weak and a little wobbly, but the vet says she's going to be ok.

Germany – A stunt man tight ropes his way into a world record. With no balancing pole or security harness, he walked up a 2-inch thick cable to the top of a mountain. The half a mile trip, at an altitude of more than 1100-feet, took him an hour and 20-minutes.
