JACUNDA, Brazil, June 24 (UPI) -- An environmental activist in Brazil released a video showing him shoving two living vampire bats in his mouth.

Arteval Duarte, an activist known for filming bizarre stunts aimed at raising awareness of deforestation and other environmental issues, appears in the video carefully placing the bats in his mouth in Jacunda, Brazil.

Duarte then opens his mouth and the apparently uninjured bats fly away.

Duarte's previous stunts included placing snakes in his mouth and being suspended in a wooden box that was set on fire.

MUNFORD, Tenn., June 24 (UPI) -- A Tennessee wedding took an unexpected turn when a sparkler held by a guest caused the bride's hair to burst into flames.

The video, filmed at a wedding in Munford, Tenn., shows the bride and groom exiting the ceremony under a canopy of sparklers held over their heads by wedding guests.

The bride passes too close to one of the fireworks and ends up with the back of her head in flames.

The flames are extinguished and the happy couple try their exit again -- this time making sure to tell guests to hold the sparklers high up in the air.
