Dirty jobs, death-defying moments and heroism these are the Top Five moments of 2013 Caught on Camera.

We want to warn you, some of this video is graphic. FOX's Jonathan Hunt shows us the moments we just couldn't turn away from.

Number Five: Dead Whale Explosion

Imagine if this was your job, slicing into a dead sperm whale washed up near the Faroe Islands. A marine biologist put all his effort to rid the carcass of its methane gas. We're not sticking around to see how this is cleaned up.

Number Four: Attempted Assasination in Bulgaria 

A loaded gun meant to kill the leader of Bulgaria's ethnic Turkish party, ends up thwarted in Bulgaria. Security guards, tough on the would-be assassin€¦arresting and beating him, all in full view of the press.

Number Three: Meteor Strikes Russia

A ten-ton meteor, racing at around 33,000 miles an hour through the atmosphere in the skies over Russia. A fireball of blinding bright light said to have the power of an atomic bomb, nearly a thousand people were hurt, a hundred people were hospitalized. No one was reported killed.

Number Two: Rescue Diver Helps Cook

A rescue diver finds a hand reaching out for help, in the murky waters of the Atlantic. Alone and shivering at the bottom of the sea, 29-year-old Harrison Okene found himself underwater after the tugboat, where he worked as a cook, capsized 12 miles off the coast of Nigeria.

Number One: Bus Driver Saves Woman

Doing his job, trying to get a bus full of high schoolers to their destination, Darnell Barton, a driver in Buffalo, New York, went above and beyond when he looked out the window and saw a woman in need. Barton approaches the woman, who he said was just barely hanging on, puts his hand on her arm, she turns around towards him, and as he supports her she jumps down to safety.

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
