While the cave is a popular spot to visit, a sign outside warns that in the rainy months starting in July, it is unsafe to go inside. The group had been the focus of a search-and-rescue operation ever since the boys and their coach went into the cave complex after soccer practice on June 23 and were caught inside by rising floodwaters. The boys range in age from 11 to 16, and their coach is 25.

For a couple hundred dollars, you can live the life of a race car driver for a day with the Richard Petty Driving Experience on the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The only problem is: the Las Vegas Motor Speedway isn’t safe.

Inside Edition talked to race car driver Scotty Speed about it after the fatal 15-car pileup in 2011. Scotty said he turned down the offer to race that day because the speedway is extremely dangerous. The Las Vegas Motor Speedway first opened in 1996, is much smaller than many others, making corner turns at speeds of up to 155 mph a dangerous feat for amateur drivers.

Spain’s notorious walkway is one of the most dangerous on the planet. Just a metre wide, the rickety path links two cliffs that sit about 200m apart and tower 100m high.

The walkway has been neglected over the years and its poor state forced officials to close it off from tourists. But daredevils still chance it, which has resulted in at least four deaths.
