NUMBER 5 - LUXURY BOATS GO UP IN FLAMES
Flames and smoke shot into the sky, dwarfing luxury boats at a local marina on Main Beach off Australia's Gold Coast. Authorities are investigating if the fire that destroyed three boats and badly damaged a fourth was deliberately lit. Arson hasn't been ruled out at this time. Investigators say the fire was fast and fierce, fueled by fiberglass and diesel fuel.
NUMBER 4 - REPORT: ASIANA VICTIM DEAD BEFORE HIT BY FIRE TRUCK
A 16-year-old victim of the Asiana Airlines crash in San Francisco died before firefighters drove over her, according to a new official report.

Three people died when the jet broke apart during landing last year.
NUMBER 3 - BIEBER SURRENDERS
Facing an assault charge, Justin Bieber turned himself in to police in Toronto Wednesday. He has been booked in connection with an encounter with a limo driver a month ago.

Health officials aren't exactly sure what caused the illness, but the symptoms are consistent with Norovirus. Royal Caribbean says passengers will get a 50 percent refund, and 50 percent credit for a future cruise.
