The US Navy come to the rescue when a plane crashes into the sea in the Pacific Ocean and a moose causes chaos when it falls through a small window into a residential basement in Colorado.  

And finally, in New Jersey, USA - a fire at a dance studio forces girls to jump from a first floor balcony to escape the burning building.
