A tourist in Iceland generously volunteered her time to search for a missing woman. The debacle began when the woman got off a tour bus at a volcano, then changed her clothes before re-boarding. Because the driver didn’t recognize her, she was reported as missing, and police spent the weekend searching for her. After taking part in the search herself, it dawned on the woman that SHE was the one they were looking for and she informed police.

New Mexico corrections officers say an inmate escaped his jail cell by breaking a window bar with a razor blade and a Popsicle stick!  Carlos Garcia told police it took about five months to break the bar on his cell window at the Lea County jail with those materials. He also used plastic, newspaper and more Popsicle sticks to fashion a fake window. But, Garcia changed his mind and climbed back into his second-story cell using a bedsheet!

Hu Seng, paid a courier firm to deliver him to his girlfriend Li Wang as a joke.  The problem was he was inside a box which he neglected to put air holes in!  That became a problem after the delivery driver got lost looking for her address. He had enough air in the box to last an hour, but the trip ended up lasting three times that long, so by the time he was dropped at her office, he was unconscious, and had to be revived by paramedics.
