In this week’s roundup of videos, we’ve got a mix of the terrifying — like flammable water and death-defying balancing acts — and the heartwarming, including an impressive-looking charity drive, an animal rescue and joyous tributes to Nelson Mandela. Without further ado, here are the top videos you should watch this week:
A family in Dixie, Louisiana discovered that their water was flammable, with traces of natural gas appearing in their property’s well water. The Parkers say that the problems with their water began when a local drilling operation set up shop nearby. The company says that they’ll be hiring a third-party inspector to look into the issue and see if the two are connected. Scenes like these have become increasingly common on YouTube and local media outlets since the issue of fracking near well systems was brought to light by the documentary Gasland in 2010.
