Robbers Raid Hospital Emergency Room (Record TV/CNN)

Patients at a hospital's emergency room in Rio de Janeiro were victims of a gang robbery.

The suspects pointed guns at the patients in the waiting room and demanded their money and other valuables.

The suspects didn't even wear masks or anything to obscure their faces.

No one was hurt but a nurse was almost got shot for not complying with the robbers' demands.

Investigators say there may be a link between this and a previous hospital robbery, and they suspect hospital personnel involvement as well.

Ship Breaks in Half in High Seas (ENEX/BFM/CBS)

A Spanish cargo ship slammed into a dyke and split in two near the French port of Bayonne on Wednesday, injuring at least one sailor and raising concerns of a fuel leak.

The local mayor’s office said the boat, carrying 11 sailors, had run into the dyke amid heavy seas near the town of Anglet after leaving Bayonne in southwestern France.

The prefecture for the Pyrenees-Atlantiques region said efforts were underway to recover the sailors by helicopter but the rescue operation was being hampered by winds of up to 110 kilometres per hour (70 miles per hour).

Officials said a fuel leak had been detected and an emergency plan known as Polmar had been activated to deal with maritime pollution.

The prefecture said one of the sailors was injured but provided no details on the extent of injuries.

Sun Dog Spotted in Kansas (6 News Lawrence/CNN)

A cool sight was spotted in Lawrence, Kansas Wednesday.

See how in this video a bright glow appears a short distance away from the sun?

That's called a sun dog.

It's pretty common in the arctic, and it sure feels like the arctic this winter in parts of the Midwest and plains.

A sun dog typically appears when the sun's rays are refracted off ice crystals in the upper atmosphere.

The ice crystals act as a prism, bending the light rays, and making it look like there's more than one sun in the sky, or that the sun has a halo around it.
