DIY Segway

Hot hot webcam action

Apparently, an Iowa woman was helping her horse give birth when it accidentally kicked her, leaving her almost uanble to move. But the whole thing was being broadcast live via a webcam, so viewers from as far away as Germany called local Iowa authorities get help. As CNN reports:

Holzrichter said her husband is a truck driver and she is frequently alone at their eastern Iowa stables. She said without the Web cam she could have laid in the barn for days before anyone would find her.

“I managed to drag my self out of the stall, but I couldn’t close the door,” she said. “So the horse could have finished the job.”
