Take a look at this! A massive sinkhole in Toledo, Ohio swallows a car at a busy intersection. The terrifying scene show's a woman's car at least 10 feet under the earth.

Toledo firefighters jumped into action lowering down a ladder to rescue the 60 year-old driver trapped inside. Thankfully the woman survived the fall and is okay.

Police and fire crews say the giant mess may have been caused by a water main break.

Now for another amazing rescue scene this time iin Tallahassee, Florida. Heavy wind and rain sent a tree toppling over onto a car with two people inside. "I thought it was a tornado, so I ran out on my porch. Then the trees were blowing over really hard. And at that time, the car was coming by, it's like slow motion, the tree just came down right on top of the car."

The  passengers inside the car were taken to a local hopital.

Look up! The men up there are a team of precision painters. Their job is to turn a water tower in Silvis, Illnois into a huge golf ball. Their canvas just happens to be 150 feet off the ground, "We have to figure out all the ratios and proportions so we are up there. First we pencil everything on there and then we paint over."

The new water tower will pay homage to the city's John Deere Classic PGA Golf Tournament.
