This is something that I must have read somewhere ..

a body of a diver was found in a burning forest (with the suit and air tanks..).He was taken from the water by a fire bomber diving to peek up water from some lake.

can you confirm?

I suppose the tanks in the planes has some sort of net to prevent the entrance of large objects?

Wasn't this a plot of a recent CSI episode? Sounds vaguely familiar...

-The guy who wakes up confused in the bathtub full of ice. With one or both of his kidneys surgically removed and a nearby note to call a doctor.

-The enraged husband who points a gun at his wife during a fight and shoots to kill her....the bullet missing her and going past and out the window...where it strikes the couple's son falling past the window, in the process of leaping off the roof in an attempted suicide.

-A mysterious man hijacks an airplane, is delivered cash, then actually parachutes from the rear stairs of the roaring jet in the middle of the night over a vast stretch of dark forest.....




.....no, wait. Uhhhh....

Original post is an urban legend.

The one about the guy who "parachutes from the rear stairs of a roaring jet" - that is presumably how a hijacker, named "D.B. Cooper" in the media, escaped after receiving his ransom. Neither he nor the ransom money has ever been recovered. It is a true story.

Here's another urban legend:

State troopers find evidence of a fiery impact on the side of a cliff. They are baffled when they find pieces of scorched metal and two human teeth embedded in the impact zone. They later discover that a man had stolen a jet-assisted takeoff assembly from a local air force base, and determine that the man strapped the JATO to his car. Upon ignition there was no way he could stop his car, but an attempt to brake left scorched rubber on the highway and launched his car into the side of the cliff.

A man gains access to a high performance jet engine and attaches it to his automobile. The man then activated the engine and drove down a stretch of deserted road at high speed. He was traveling so fast that he lost control of the vehicle and crashed into the side of a mountain.

Fact or fiction? You be the judge.

Not an urban legend, but still a legend:

A woman walks into a train of the London Undergound late at night. She is almost alone in the train. Opposite her, she sees an old lady between two men. Both men have one of their hands behind the old lady. The old lady keeps staring at the woman without blinking and moving at all. At the next stop a man enters and sits next to the woman. Two minutes later the man gives a woman a note that says:

"On the next stop get out of the train with me. I am a doctor. The old lady sitting on the other side is dead."
