Cool pool

If you fancy a dip in this pool, you’ll need a head for heights – it’s 55 stories up at the Marina Bay Sands development in Singapore.

But swimming to the edge won’t be quite as risky as it looks. While the water in the infinity pool seems to end in a sheer drop, it actually spills into a catchment area where it is pumped back into the main pool. At three times the length of an Olympic pool and 650ft up, it is the largest outdoor pool in the world at that height.

Runaway gorilla recaptured in Congo

A Silverback Mountain Gorilla in Congo’s Virunga National Park is re-located to the forests after ravaging the crops of villagers on the outskirts of the park. The gorilla had escaped from it’s compound and was on the run for two months. 

The re-location, that involved anesthetizing the gorilla, took all day and involved carrying a 170 kilo animal up very steep hills in the baking African sun.
