    A screenshot from a video taken by a remotely operated underwater vehicle shows two small cannons among the scattered timbers of the shipwreck of Sir John Franklin's ill-fated 1845-48 British Arctic Expedition on the sea floor in northern Canada, when it was found on 07 September 2014 by the Victoria Strait Expedition. British Navy Captain Sir John Franklin set out to seek the Northwest Passage with British Navy ships specially outfitted HMS Erebus and HMS Terror. The Erebus and Terror became icebound near King William Island. When no word from the expedition had been received by 1847, search parties from Canada, Britain and the United States set out to find signs of Franklin and his crew. No member of the crew survived

    MAINZ, Germany - A 6-ton tractor smashed into the bedroom of a family home near the German town of Homberg on Wednesday after its driver failed to secure the emergency brake. The 55-year old female farmer had stepped out of the vehicle to give first aid to an injured cyclist.

    "The tractor rolled 540 yards down a hill and crashed into the house. Luckily, the owner was in the garden at the time and no one was injured," police spokesman Roman Eisenbach told NBC News. The house is now considered uninhabitable as it could collapse at any time, officials say
