Texan Nancy Allen was hiking with her daughter 6,000 feet up Washington state’s Mt. St. Helens on Wednesday when she slipped and hurt herself. Allen called the sheriff’s office around 8 PM saying she needed help getting back down the mountain, and search and rescue teams scrambled and reached Allen and her daughter by 11 PM. Officers checked Allen for injuries and then began their descent with Allen in a rescue basket. The team hiked about 2,000 feet down the mountain before taking a break around 5:20 AM. At that point, Allen stopped the effort and decided to hire a private helicopter to remove her and her daughter. The chopper rate was about $1,000 an hour. A sheriff’s spokesman said, “I’m not aware of any incidents like this. This is a first for us, as far as I know.”

It’s tough dealing with a bank when it repossesses your home — especially when the bank wasn’t holding the mortgage. A bank in Wellston, Ohio, entered a rundown home, whose owner had been away for weeks, and sold off or trashed her possessions. The actual house on which the bank had foreclosed was across the street.

An accused burglar fleeing cops in England jumped into a tall garbage can in a park, where officers found him upside down.
