What a scary time.
AirAsia flight QZ8501 was headed from Surabaya, Indonesia to Singapore on Sunday, but has since gone missing 40 minutes after it took off. The last contact that they had with the aircraft was off the coast of Borneo, though the reported times of the last contact are not consistent. One official said 6:17am Jakarta time was the last contact, while Singapore authorities said it was 6:24am.
The search for the plane was suspended once night fell in the region, due to stormy conditions, and it's expected to pick back up on Monday morning.
In the search, Indonesia sent three warships, maybe more, and five planes, while Malaysia sent three boats and three planes, Singapore sent a C-130 plane, and Australia extended an offer to also send boats and planes as well. The search is taking place

Initially the report from Peru was that the young athlete had died, but actually he survived and he knows it's a blessing that he did!

…wait. Where are the lights?
A Boston weatherman was stunned when lightning struck the studio he was reporting live in, subsequently cutting the power off!
The blackout only lasted a second, though. And the weatherman bravely continued his segment.
Thankfully, the internet exists so you can see it all for yourself (above)!
Here's what he said on Twitter:
"Glad I dont use profanity when bolt struck the building, scared the #@%& out of me!"
Even though it was more 'professional' not to use profanity - we think that in terms of television, nothing could've been better.
