Must-see video (WTVD)

A skydiver becomes tangled in power lines, a flooded roller coaster, a massive tanker fire, and a brazen thief caught on camera is all part of the ABC11 must-see videos.

SKYDIVER HITS POWERLINES

It was a frightening scene in Tennessee when a veteran skydiving during a Memorial Day ceremony became tangled in some power lines.

As he was floating down, wind caught his parachute, blowing him into wires, causing him to fall to the ground.

Paramedics rushed the man to the hospital.

Eyewitnesses said he gave them a thumbs up as he was riding away in an ambulance.

FLOODED ROLLER COASTER

In Texas, flooding turned an amusement park into a water park.

Rushing water cascaded over one of the rollercoaster tracks at Six Flags in Arlington, after record rain caused a nearby creek to overflow its banks and partially submerge the rollercoaster.

The park was able to open up later in the day.

TANKER FIRE SHUTS DOWN INTERSTATE


A spectacular tanker fire shut down an interstate in Detroit.

Officials said the driver was able to get out of the truck, and no one was hurt.

The driver said he believed a mechanical issue led to the blaze.

The truck was hauling about 9,000 gallons of unleaded fuel.

BRAZEN THEFT CAUGHT ON VIDEO.

Thieves have been hitting pay-at-the-pump machines at gas stations and getting away with loads of cash.

A man was caught on surveillance video going up to the outdoor of a pay-at-the-pump machine, then looking around before unlocking it with a drill.

Moments later, he tied a chain to the box of cash inside.

While he failed, the same suspect has made off with thousands of dollars in cash from several other gas pumps.
