Kim Jong Un’s grand arrival in Russia for his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin encountered a minor snafu on Wednesday.

The North Korean leader’s distinct armored green train pulled up to the station in Vladivostok and came to a stop as North Korean officials scrambled to the door to put down ramps. The staff, however, realized the train’s door did not line up with the red carpet that was rolled out ahead of the arrival.

Video showed an official opening the door and noticing the error. The engineer was then forced to roll the train backward in an attempt to line up with the carpet — but it still didn’t go as planned.

Two North Korean staffers realized the train door was still a few inches off from perfectly lining up with the red carpet when they placed the green ramp down. They appeared to take a moment to think about how they could resolve the issue before ultimately deciding to leave it how it is.

NORTH KOREAN LEADER KIM JONG UN ARRIVES IN RUSSIAN PORT CITY AHEAD OF FIRST MEETING WITH PUTIN

Kim was greeted by a military orchestra before he got into his personal limousine that traveled with him, and drove away. He is expected to attend a dinner reception hosted by Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Trutnev, according to South Korean media.

The despot traveled to Russia with a big entourage — possibly more than 200 people — and lots of supplies. Kim’s officials are reportedly tasked to collect his bodily waste and cigarette butts to prevent foreign intelligence agencies from collecting and analyzing them for clues into the leader’s health.

The North Korea-Russia summit comes two months after Kim and President Trump met for the second time, but ended up cutting their meeting in Hanoi, Vietnam, short after both sides failed to reach an agreement due to disputes over U.S.-led sanction on the North.

The Hermit Kingdom has continued to express its frustration over deadlock negotiations despite Kim insisting after the Hanoi summit that his regime was still committed to denuclearization.

A New York City baby sitter was arrested after she stabbed the mother of a child she was hired to care for when the duo got into an argument over pay, reports said.

Miriam Paloma ended up in handcuffs on Monday after she plunged a knife into the 27-year-old mother’s body and slashed her once inside at a Bronx apartment, the New York Post reported.

“I don’t work for free!” Paloma allegedly yelled during the altercation with the mother.

The woman told CBS New York that her two children, a 4-year-old girl and 7-year-old boy, were in the apartment when Paloma attacked her. She said took shelter after the stabbing by barricading her and her children in a bedroom.

“I didn’t know what to do,” the woman who was stabbed told the news station. “I told her to put the knife down, she wouldn’t put the knife down.”

“Previously she had told me that the agency owed her money, and about two hours later she just came out of nowhere and attacked me with a knife,” she added. “She stabbed me in my back twice, there was blood all over my apartment and children were running back and forth.”

A California amputee was able to joke that he’d now lost two legs skydiving after authorities discovered the man’s $15,000 prosthetic limb — which had detached and tumbled to earth during an otherwise successful Sunday jump.

Dion Callaway, who had his leg amputated after a skydiving accident two years ago, told the Press Democrat that, once he’d landed after a 10,000-foot plunge, he spent hours searching for the prosthesis to no avail.

“I’ve jumped with the prosthetic before, but a rush of air got inside this time and it just flew off,” Callaway said Monday. “I tried to watch where it was falling, but I was so overwhelmed in that moment I could not keep track.”

The limb was eventually recovered at the nearby Cloverdale lumberyard.

ARMY SERGEANT KILLED IN ‘FREAK ACCIDENT’ WHILE SKYDIVING IN NORTH CAROLINA

Micah Smith, the lumberyard’s production manager, told the newspaper that a worker spotted the prosthesis — but mistook it for a soda can.

“Oh, that’s not a soda can, that’s a leg,” Smith recalled thinking when he took a closer look at the object. “It was a nice looking Nike [shoe].”

That report brought out a deputy with the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office, and authorities then set out to find the owner — even posting a “classified” ad on social media: “Missing a leg?”

The deputy eventually contacted people at the nearby airport in hopes of finding the leg’s owner and workers there quickly hooked officials up with Callaway.

Callaway was reunited with his prosthetic leg on Monday and noted it was “in perfect shape — survived 10,000 feet.”

“[Callaway] promises to make a tether and learn from this but fully plans to stick with his passion. Good luck Dion!! Great spirit!!!” the sheriff’s office wrote in a Facebook post.

Callaway told the newspaper that he shattered his heel two years ago after he landed on the ground at a high speed. He went through a year of physical therapy before opting to amputate his leg below the knee.

“Skydiving is my everything and the people I do it with are my family,” Callaway said. “I always seem to come back to it.”

A costumed stranger fighting for justice removed his mask Monday — but it wasn’t Bruce Wayne revealing he’s Batman or Peter Parker confessing he’s Spider-Man.

It turns out the person seen in an Easter bunny outfit brawling with two others this weekend in a viral video has a familiar identity: Florida man.

Antoine McDonald, still dressed in the holiday getup he purchased at Walmart, admitted to being the man behind the whiskers and wiggling nose during an interview Monday with FOX35 Orlando.

McDonald said he was out Easter Sunday with his cousin and friend heading to a club in downtown Orlando — and dressed from floppy ear to thumper in the rabbit attire — when the group saw a man spit on a woman, who then retaliated by punching the expectorator.

“I see this lady and this guy going back and forth, and I’m just looking at it and walking,” McDonald told FOX35 Orlando. “Then I see him spit on her, and she starts hitting him, so I walk over there, I try to help.”

At that point, the man and woman started tussling.

“I try to break up the fight at first,” McDonald said. “I felt I had to do something to help get him off of her to make sure she got away from the fight safely and unharmed.”

Video taken by a club promoter, who goes by “workfth” on Instagram, showed a person in an Easter bunny costume appearing to try to pull two people apart before eventually throwing several punches himself.

The fight continued for several seconds, with the costumed Easter bunny delivering vicious body blows (instead of the usual chocolate-filled baskets). Bystanders watched and shouted as the surreal scene before a police officer finally jumped in and broke up the bunny beatdown.

“Only in Florida. only in Orlando you see a bunny fighting. You’ve got to pull your phone out,” the promoter told FOX35.

The video was posted on Instagram on Sunday night and, quick as a rabbit, garnered more than 1 million views in a day.

No arrests were made Sunday night and McDonald said he and his friends departed the scene and continued with their festivities. He said he didn’t expect to receive so much attention from the bizarre incident.

The Easter bunny was hoppin’ mad Sunday night and ended up in a three-person brawl in Florida.

A video posted on Instagram showed a person dressed as a white bunny running toward two people, who were already wrestling each other on the sidewalk in downtown Orlando, and joining the fight. The costumed character appeared to begin throwing punches after initially trying to pull the two men apart.

The fight continues for several more seconds as the Easter rabbit delivers vicious body blows (instead of the usual chocolate-filled baskets) and bystanders watch and shout. A police officer eventually jumps in and breaks up the beatdown.

The promoter who posted the video told FOX35 Orlando the melee began when a man bumped into a woman. It’s unclear why the Easter bunny jumped in or who was underneath the costume.

“As you can see, the Easter rabbit been taking boxing classes,” said the promoter, who goes by workfth on Instagram.

Three of Danish billionaire Anders Holch Povlsen’s four children were among the nearly 300 people killed on Easter Sunday when Islamic suicide bombers attacked hotels and churches in Sri Lanka, a spokesperson for Povlsen’s company confirmed.

Holch Povlsen, his wife Anne Holch Povlsen and the couple’s four children were in Colombo during the Easter holiday when the suicide bombing occurred. They were staying at the Shangri-La hotel, which was targeted by two suicide bombers Sunday, Forbes reported.

“Unfortunately, we can confirm the reports,” Bestseller spokesperson Jesper Stubkier told Forbes. “We ask you to respect the privacy of the family and we, therefore, have no further comments.”

The spokesman did not provide further information on where the Holch Povlsen family was when the attacks occurred. The identities of the children were not released.

An Instagram account identified as belonging to one of Holch Povlsen’s children featured a post from several days ago showing her and two of her siblings. The Instagram post has since been flooded with condolences for the family, though it’s unclear if those pictured were the children who died.

The 46-year-old business tycoon is the richest person in Denmark with a net worth of $7.9 billion. He is the biggest shareholder of British online retailer Asos and the largest landowner in Scotland. Holch Povlsen also holds significant stakes in Zalando and Klarna.

A couple who went missing after going on a hike in snowy Southern California mountains were found safe Wednesday after rescuers spotted and followed two sets of footprints.

Gabrielle Wallace, 31, and Eric Desplinter, 33, were reported missing Saturday after friends became concerned when the duo didn’t return from their hike by 7 p.m. that day. Wallace and Desplinter were hiking in the San Gabriel Mountains, northeast of Los Angeles, and believed to be headed toward Cucamonga Peak near Mount Baldy.

“Miracles happen, and this is a miracle,” Mike Leum with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department tweeted about finding Wallace and Desplinter alive five days after they went missing.

Search-and-rescue teams from six counties volunteered to help comb through the area for the couple, who authorities believed had limited food and water with them. By Wednesday, strong wind gusts were impeding the efforts.

A Canadian grandmother is still feeling the burn and loving it — at the age of 73.

Lester McInally, from Canada’s British Columbia province, is squashing stereotypes as a volunteer for the White Lake Fire Department, proving she can take the heat at any age.

McInally told CBC News she’s been volunteering for the fire station in Shuswap since she and her husband moved to the town in 2001.

“We decided that we’d better join the fire department because they were giving us the protection that we needed,” McInally told CBC’s “Daybreak South.”

“It’s part of my life,” McInally said. “I’ve been with them probably longer than I had any other office job.”

McInally’s role doesn’t require her to rush into burning buildings. The grandmother acts as support to ensure all fire operations are safe and smooth. She’s taken on various roles in the 17 years she’s been a volunteer.

“If we have a call out, I’d be the staging officer,” she said. “It’s basically keeping track of all the members that are there and then in the evening or after the incident, I make sure that all of them are accounted for and that they’re all going home safe to their families.”

Lester McInally said she plans on volunteering for as long as possible.

McInally also said in a post on Columbia Shuswap Regional District’s website: “I’ve never been the one to pick up a hose…when that pager goes off, I’m down at the hall. I’m there because I know I’m needed.”

Her husband retired from volunteering a few years ago, but McInally is still going strong despite being 73 years old.

“[I want to keep volunteering] as long as I can, as long as I’m still useful to the department and to all the members,” she told CBC News. “We are in recruiting mode at the moment and, face it, any rural fire department always needs volunteers.”

Don’t worry, the cat is feline fine.

Julian Assange was carried out of the Ecuadorian embassy in London on Thursday after the South American nation revoked the WikiLeaks founder’s political asylum, ending his nearly seven-year stay there. Ecuador accused Assange of “repeatedly violating international conventions and protocol.”

As Assange was whisked away by British police, questions emerged about the 47-year-old’s feline, known as the “Embassy Cat,” who had been living with Assange since at least May 2016. Assange even created Twitter and Instagram profiles — both called “Embassy Cat” — where he had posted updates.

Turns out, Assange let his beloved pet go in November so he wouldn’t be trapped at the embassy anymore, Italian newspaper La Repubblica previously reported. The “isolation became unbearable” for the embassy cat and Assange allowing the feline to run free will give it “a healthier life.”

It’s unclear where the cat is now.

WIKILEAKS FOUNDER JULIAN ASSANGE ARRESTED AFTER ECUADOR WITHDRAWS ASYLUM

Ecuador threatened in October to take the cat away if Assange didn’t follow a set of house rules that included cleaning the bathroom and other spaces he and his guests used in the embassy.

“Mr. Julian Assange will be responsible for the well-being, food, cleanliness and proper care of his pet. If due attention is not paid to the pet, the Head of Mission will request Mr. Assange to deliver the pet to another person or an animal shelter outside the Diplomatic Mission,” the memo to Assange stated.

The embassy cat’s social media bio still states, “I live in the Ecuadorian Embassy with Julian Assange : Interested in counter-purrveillance.”

Assange was arrested on charges of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion for aiding Chelsea Manning, a former U.S. Army analyst, in breaking a password stored on a U.S. Defense Department computer connected to a U.S. government computer network for classified documents and communications, the Justice Department said.

“During the conspiracy, Manning and Assange engaged in real-time discussions regarding Manning’s transmission of classified records to Assange,” the Justice Department said. “The discussions also reflect Assange actively encouraging Manning to provide more information.  During an exchange, Manning told Assange that ‘after this upload, that’s all I really have got left.’ To which Assange replied, ‘curious eyes never run dry in my experience.’”

Assange faces a maximum of five years in prison if he’s convicted of the charge.

Police said they were posting about the crash to “bring up a contributing factor [of collisions] that is not covered too often.”

“We know that it is easier for some drivers than others but PLEASE, try to teach new drivers and yourselves to overcome the fear and pull over to a safe place. Lives depend on it,” police wrote in the post.

Cairo is about 42 miles south of Poughkeepsie.
