MEXICOS MOST WANTED-TRX O ANI


NOW TO THE LATEST ABOUT HOW MEXICO HAS CAPTURED ITS MOST-WANTED MAN.

DRUG KINGPIN JOAQUIN GUZMAN, KNOWN AS "EL CHAPO".

HIS ARREST HAS HUGE IMPLICATIONS AROUND THE WORLD,

AND IT COMES AFTER A MONTHS-LONG OPERATION WITH HELP FROM U-S AGENCIES.

MARK POTTER HAS THE DETAILS. Return to index of stories...


MEXICOS MOST WANTED-PKG


New details this morning about the dramatic arrest of Mexican kingpin Joaquin Guzman--known as "El Chapo" or "Shorty"--U.S. and Mexican officials say they'd been hot on his heels for the last few weeks.

They claim to have just missed him after raiding one of his safehouses recently, Guzman had escaped by climbing through tunnels leading away from the house.

This video released by the Mexican Attorney General's office shows a stairway heading down to a tunnel, which then connects to the city drainage system.

On Saturday morning, though, Guzman's luck ran out when Mexican Marines captured him in this condo in the resort town of Mazatlan--for drug agents a HUGE catch!

"Chapo Guzman is without a doubt the most prolific trafficker of cocaine, heroin, methamphetemine and marijuana in the world."

And authorities says Guzman's Sinaloa cartel supplies most of the illicit drugs crossing the U.S. border.

He's been indicted in a half dozen American cities.

Forbes Magazine labeled him one of the world's richest men.

In 2001 Guzman escaped from a Mexican maximum security prison in a laundry truck--inspiring a legend that he was "invincible."

But now that he's behind bars, US officials plan to seek his extradition.

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

"Another warm and humid day"

After the fog lifted, it turned out to be a nice end to the weekend with more sunshine and temperatures in the middle 80s. Our stretch of unseasonably warm weather will continue for the next few days, before another system brings clouds, rain, and a slight dip in the mercury.

Partly sunny skies will take us into the afternoon hours with mainly dry weather. A couple of isolated showers will still be possible, however these will favor our interior zones especially near Lake Okeechobee. Afternoon temperatures will continue to run 5-7° above average as they climb into the middle 80s. Beaches and coastal locations will be a few points cooler due to the development of the west coast seabreeze.

Patchy fog will be a good bet once again tonight as humidity stays high and winds remain light. Overnight lows won't drop by much as they settle into the middle to upper 60s.

Due to the heat and the humidity a few stray showers can't be ruled out for Tuesday as highs remain in the lower to middle 80s under a mix of sun and clouds. By mid week, we'll be tracking another weather system that will increase our cloud cover and up our rain chances beginning Wednesday. We'll also see temperatures take a slight dip as they cool into the 70s for daytime highs and the upper 50s for overnight lows. A few widely scattered showers will continue through Friday with a drying trend as we head into next weekend. Return to index of stories...


MORE DEBT THAN SAVINGS-VO PLASMA


IN THESE ECONOMIC TIMES,

IT CAN BE HARD TO SAVE MONEY FOR A RAINY DAY.

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE OWE MORE MONEY ON CREDIT CARDS THAN THE AMOUNT OF MONEY THEY HAVE IN EMERGENCY SAVING FUNDS.

BOB HANSEN HAS THE STORY. Return to index of stories...


MORE DEBT THAN SAVINGS-PKG


YOU SIMPLY CAN'T TELL BY LOOKING AT PEOPLE. WHO HAS EMERGENCY SAVINGS SET ASIDE AND WHO DOESN'T. UT ONE THING IS CLEAR. WE ALL NEED TO DO IT.

"I always say 3 to six months of expenses, put in emergency savings."

BUT ACCORDING TO BANK-RATE DOT COM. ONLY 51 PERCENT OF PEOPLE IN THEIR SURVEY HAVE MORE MONEY IN A RAINY-DAY FUND. THAN IN CREDIT CARD DEBT.

"I don't know if we don't value savings, we live in a culture today where there is fomo, fear of missing out."

"I think food and dining is one area where people get the ah-hah of wow, we spent a ton of money."

HOLLY PEREZ WITH THE WEBSITE MINT DO COM SAYS CREATING AN EMERGENCY FUND STARTS BY KNOWING EXACTLY WHERE YOU'RE MONEY IS GOING.

"often times people don't look at how and where they're spending. so mint is a great tool to see all your accounts in one place."

THINK OF MINT.COM AND THESE OTHER APPS AS DIGITAL PENCILS AND NOTE PADS. MORE OF A HIGH TECH LEDGER FOR LOW TECH SPENDERS, KEEPING TRACK OF EVERY PENNY.

"so if you use your bank or mint.com, manilla, any of these online services, you are going to have access to helping you understand and organize your spending."

"it's easy to feel overwhelmed, so where do you start to get back on track? financial experts say, start simple."

"Just set your sights on one thing you can tackle throughout the year, whether that's credit card debt, maybe paying down your student loan or saving for that emergency fund that so many people don't have."

"break down your goals into smaller goals. so i always encourage clients who have no money put away to focus on that first 1-thousand dollars." Return to index of stories...

PELVIC VEIN COMPRESSION-OC


WHEN THE SWELLING IN ONE WOMAN'S LEGS BECAME SO SEVERE SHE COULD NO LONGER WALK, SHE THOUGHT HER HAPPY, ACTIVE LIFE WAS OVER.

BRITNEY GLASER SHOWS HOW SHE FOUND RELIEF. Return to index of stories...


PELVIC VEIN COMPRESSION-CLIP PKG


51-YEAR-OLD DEBRA HEBERT IS JUST HAPPY TO BE STANDING AGAIN - AFTER YEARS OF ENDURING PAINFUL LEG SWELLING THAT DOCTORS TOLD HER THEY COULDN'T TREAT.

"They had told me pretty much that for the rest of my life I would be in my bed with my legs elevated because they were so big and they were so swollen."

THE PROBLEM STARTED WHEN DEBRA'S SHIFT WORK JOB BECAME MORE SEDENTARY.

"I couldn't see where my calves and my ankles started and stopped and as the day got longer, my swelling got worse."

CARDIOLOGIST CARL FASTABEND SAYS DEBRA HAD A COMMON CONDITION WHERE THE PELVIC VEIN IS COMPRESSED - REDUCING BLOOD FLOW.

"It's a genetic predisposition for sure, it's more common in women who have had multiple births, it's more common in people who are overweight."

TO SEE WHAT'S HAPPENING INSIDE THE VEIN, A CATHETER WITH AN ULTRASOUND IS USED BY GOING THROUGH THE GROIN.

"We look at the vein through ultrasound from inside the vein and if we see the compression syndrome, we place stents."

"that process happens immediately as soon as the vein compression syndrome is diagnosed. a tiny stainless steel mesh stent is positioned inside the vein to hold it open - and get the blood flowing properly again."

"And then we use the intravascular ultrasound afterwards to confirm that the stent's in proper position is properly opposed to the vessel wall and the result is what it should be."

DEBRA SAYS SHE COULDN'T HAVE DREAMED OF A BETTER OUTCOME.

"It was immediate. The next day I was back up on my legs and I haven't stopped since."

THE ONLY MAINTENANCE DEBRA REQUIRES TODAY IS A PAIR OF COMPRESSION SOCKS.

"No medications, working 7-12s, rocking and rolling, sitting at the desk, exercising, riding the bike, doing yard work, things that I couldn't do for about three years." Return to index of stories...

DOWNED OFFICER KITS-PKG


DALLAS OFFICER JOSHUA BURNS ISN'T HIS DEPARTMENTS FIRST TO BE SHOT IN THE LINE OF DUTY, HIS LIFE IS THE FIRST TO BE SAVED IN PART TO WHAT YOU SEE ON THIS TABLE.

"these kits contain state of the art hemorrhage control equipment that has been proven to save lives on the battle fields of iraq and afghanistan"

THEY'RE CALLED DOWNED OFFICER KITS, SPECIAL BANDAGES, QUICK CLOT GAUZE AND A TOURNIQUET.

"so you can see the tourniquet carried here on the duty belt in a holster."

TOOLS SOLDIERS USE TO LIMIT BLEEDING, DR. EASTMAN SAYS THESE DAYS THE BATTLEFIELD IS CLOSER TO HOME THAN YOU THINK.

"we are entering an area of unprecedented threat, when you look at the boston marathon bombing, you look at any of the active shooters that have happened over the last 12 months we're entering a period of threat that we have never seen or planned for"

32 HUNDRED DALLAS OFFICERS WERE TRAINED ON AND ISSUED THESE KITS PRIOR TO THE 50TH KENNEDY MEMORIAL.

PART OF PREPARATIONS FOR A POTENTIAL MASS TRAGEDY.

"the tourniquet is designed to slip over the wound and extremity, it's a simple tightening."

IT'S A MINIMAL AMOUNT OF TRAINING AND THE MAXIMUM BENEFIT, BLEEDING WOUNDS STABILIZED, AN IN OFFICER BURNS CASE, A LIFE SAVED.

"blood is the currency of life that we use it is the entire reason behind when patients have bad outcomes most of that is from uncheck hemmorage. this is public access hemmorage control and we really have to teach everyone out there." Return to index of stories...

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

"Another warm and humid day"

After the fog lifted, it turned out to be a nice end to the weekend with more sunshine and temperatures in the middle 80s. Our stretch of unseasonably warm weather will continue for the next few days, before another system brings clouds, rain, and a slight dip in the mercury.

Partly sunny skies will take us into the afternoon hours with mainly dry weather. A couple of isolated showers will still be possible, however these will favor our interior zones especially near Lake Okeechobee. Afternoon temperatures will continue to run 5-7° above average as they climb into the middle 80s. Beaches and coastal locations will be a few points cooler due to the development of the west coast seabreeze.

Patchy fog will be a good bet once again tonight as humidity stays high and winds remain light. Overnight lows won't drop by much as they settle into the middle to upper 60s.

Due to the heat and the humidity a few stray showers can't be ruled out for Tuesday as highs remain in the lower to middle 80s under a mix of sun and clouds. By mid week, we'll be tracking another weather system that will increase our cloud cover and up our rain chances beginning Wednesday. We'll also see temperatures take a slight dip as they cool into the 70s for daytime highs and the upper 50s for overnight lows. A few widely scattered showers will continue through Friday with a drying trend as we head into next weekend. Return to index of stories...

RIO PREPS-PKG


RIO IS THE NEXT OLYMPIC CITY.

AND ITS MAYOR CAN'T WAIT.

"There's no view like that. There's no place like Rio."

The stadium for the opening ceremony is ready.

Most venues are not. The main Olympic Park is a building site.

"things are on schedule, on time, and that's what we've got to prove that we can deliver things on schedule, on time."

OLYMPIC OFFICIALS SAY RIO HASN'T A DAY TO WASTE. HE'S A MAYOR IN A HURRY.

"I can guarantee that these games will be ready on time". one hundred per cent? one hundred per cent"

BUT RIO HAS A DARK SIDE.

SINCE IT WON THE GAMES, ITS POLICE HAVE STRUGGLED AGAINST THE DRUG GANGS THAT RULE MANY NEIGHBOURHOODS.

THEY PATROL AGGRESSIVELY - TRYING TO MAKE RIO SAFE FOR THE SUMMER GAMES.

SO WITH SOCHI OVER, THE PRESSURE IS ON, AND OLYMPIC OFFICIALS WILL BE KEEPING THE PRESSURE ON THE MAYOR AND ON RIO.

ONLY 894 DAYS TO GO BEFORE THE NEXT OPENING CEREMONY.
