|Aftermath of a gym roof collapse amid heavy snow in|
the Czech Republic. Video shows people inside the
building fleeing as the roof comes down
Up in Minnesota, there's been a thaw after a fairly long bout of frigid weather.
Minnehaha Falls becomes beautiful this time of year as giant icicles hang from the cliff where the falls is.
You're supposed to stay at a high overlook to view the falls in the wintertime. Going down to the actual falls is dangerous, as big chunks of ice can collapse.
But as the video shows, tons of people go down there anyway. Even after, as you see in part of the newsclip that is the video, a woman got hurt when a big chunk of ice recently gave way.
Despite the obvious danger, people are still going right up to the falls. Even more dangerously, they're going behind the big ice cliffs that have formed there, which is really scary.
Next, as I mentioned yesterday, central and eastern Europe is having a rough time with big snowstorms ane intense cold lately.
In the Czech Republic, a bunch of people were playing floorball in a brand new gym. (They hadn't even had the offiicial opening ceremony yet.)
Suddenly, as you see in the video below, the players and spectators heard and saw something, so they bolted for the exits.
Then the roof comes down under the weight of 15 inches of snow. Luckily, the collapse happened slowly enough so that everybody got out of the building safely.
