A Chinese safari park has recruited three people to live with 48 tigers for 72 hours.

They have been given a 10 sq metre cage within the enclosure and will record every aspect of the tigers’ lives for three days.

Qu Hongtao, spokesman of Qinling Wild Animal Safari in Xi’an, Shaanxi province, said: “We want to celebrate the Year of the Tiger and also raise awareness of the need to protect wildlife.”

Men who are overweight have a higher chance of surviving a car crash if they’re wearing a safety belt, a University of Michigan study found.

The U-M Transportation Research Institute study found men who were overweight had a 22 percent lower chance of being killed in a fatal crash than men who are underweight.But the opposite was true if overweight weren’t buckled in. According to the study, men with a body mass index between 35 and 50 were 10 percent more likely to be killed in an auto accident.
