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.

"A warm Tuesday"

It was a beautiful start to the week across Southwest Florida, with cool mornings and warm afternoons. Our stretch of dry weather will continue through Tuesday, before showers make a return to the area by Wednesday.

After low clouds and a few areas of patchy fog, mostly sunny skies will prevail through the mid day hours. A few high clouds will move in from the west this afternoon, keeping our skies mostly to partly sunny at tims. As winds start to veer more out of the south/southwest, expect daytime highs to warm quickly this afternoon. Away from the coast, expect thermometer readings in the lower to middle 80s, while beaches and coastal locations are a few degrees cooler due to the gulf breeze kicking in.

Clouds will increase a bit tonight and temperatures will be even milder, as they settle into the lower to middle 60s area wide.

By mid week, we'll be tracking another system traversing the Gulf of Mexico. This will keep more clouds than sun across the region on Wednesday with scattered showers back in the forecast. As the cold front passes by late Wednesday and into early Thursday, cooler and drier weather will return in its wake. Daytime highs will return to the middle 70s, with morning lows in the upper 40s by Friday. This will set the stage for another delightful weekend with mostly to partly sunny skies and comfortable humidity values. Return to index of stories...

DRAMATIC SURVEILLANCE VIDEO SHOWS THE EXACT MOMENT OF IMPACT WHEN THE TAXI COLLIDED WITH THIS YELLOW SCHOOL BUS FULL OF CHILDREN.

THE IMPACT SO FORCEFUL IT SENT THE TAXI FLYING INTO A LIGHT POLE AND FLIPPED THE SCHOOL BUS OVER ON TO ITS SIDE WITH THE TERRIFIED CHILDREN TRAPPED INSIDE.

They were completely hysterical, they were screaming yelling, jumping around. they had no idea what was going on or how they were going to get out of there.

JOHN DENMARK WAS ON THE STREET CORNER WHEN THE ACCIDENT HAPPENED. HE WAS ONE OF SEVERAL WITNESSES WHO DIDN'T THINK TWICE TO RUSH OVER AND HELP.

Once we got the door open I just immediately jumped in the bus, just started trying to get people out as fast as possible because I saw blood on the ceiling of the bus so I didn't know if that had been a child or one of the adults.

THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION SAYS THE STUDENTS ATTEND PS 53 AND THE ACADEMY FOR ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERSHIP. IT'S BELIEVED THE CHILDREN ON BOARD MAY HAVE BEEN AUTISTIC OR HAD OTHER SPECIAL NEEDS.

ME: INMATES SNEAK OUT FOR SEX-PKG


--REPORTER PKG-AS FOLLOWS--

WELL THIS IS THE COUPLE THAT WILL LIKELY LOSE THEIR "GOOD TIME SERVED" BECAUSE OF THE TIME THEY SPENT TOGETHER IN A CELL SATURDAY.

THE SHERIFF SAYS RENEE GLANTZ WAS ABLE TO GET OUT OF HER CELL BY JAMMING HER DOOR WITH A PIECE OF CARDBOARD AT ABOUT 11 O'CLOCK SATURDAY MORNING.

"It is believed that inmate Glantz utilized an empty cardboard roll from a toilet paper to manipulate the cell lock from fully engaging."

NEXT, THE SHERIFF SAID GLANTZ MADE HER WAY THROUGH TWO "UNLOCKED DOORS" AND INTO THE CELL OF MICHAEL D'ANGLEO - BEING HELD BY THE U-S MARSHAL'S FOR A BANK ROBBERY.

IT IS NOT CLEAR HOW D'ANGELO JAMMED HIS CELL DOOR.

OF THE SURFACE -- THE SHERIFF SAYS THIS SECURITY BREACH LOOKS LIKE A VIOLATION OF POLICY.

HE SAID THE TWO OTHER DOORS SEPARATING THE MALE AND FEMALE WINGS OF THE MAXIMUM SECURITY SECTION OF THE JAIL WERE LEFT "UNLOCKED" WHILE GUARDS WERE SERVING LUNCH TO THE INMATES.

"Being a corrections officer is a tough job, serving the plates and the trays going up the stairs, down stairs, requiring somebody to open the door every time is a hardship but it is a maximum security unit and we anticipate the maximum security unit is going to be the tightest area at the Cumberland County Jail."

FOUR GUARDS ARE BEING INVESTIGATED, IT COULD BE A WEEK OR MORE BEFORE IT'S DETERMINED IF THERE WILL BE DISCIPLINARY ACTION.

ALSO BEING LOOKED INTO, WHETHER GUARDS CONDUCTED A CHECK OF THE CELLS EVERY 15 MINUTES AND WHETHER THEY LOOKED TO SEE IF THE INMATE WAS BREATHING.

JOYCE SAID GLANTZ PROPPED UP PILLOWS AND CLOTHING TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE SHE WAS IN BED.

BUT IN REALITY SHE WAS A WING AWAY - FOR SEVERAL HOURS BEFORE SHE GOT CAUGHT.

The good thing about this is we're talking about an inmate having sex with another inmate. We're not talking about a death, we're not talking about God forbid, I'm planning a funeral for one of my corrections officers because of the temporary lapse in judgment of leaving the doors unlocks. Because quite frankly, that could have happened." Return to index of stories...

MALAYSIA PLANE SEARCH-PKG


For the first time, we see the two men who used stolen passports to board

Malaysia Airlines flight 370.

Here is one imposter caught on surveillance tape at the airport apparently

posing as an AUSTRIAN. Malaysian authorities identified him in a late night

press conference.

His name - Pouria Nour Mohammad Mehdad - 19 and Iranian. His mother told

police she knew he was travelling on a stolen passport and he was trying to

migrate to Germany.

Tan Sri Khalid Abu Baka, inspector-general of police SOT - 31114 We believe

that he is not likely to be a member of any terrorist group.

The other imposter travelling as an Italian -- also caught on tape was not

identified by name.

SOT REP PETER KING, R-NY -- 15;01;54;09

WE HAVE TO TAKE THIS EXTREMALLY SERIOUSLY AND WE HAVE TO /

RUN IT TO THE GROUND DO EVERY POSSIBLE TYPE AND EXHAUST EVERY TYPE OF

INVESTIGATION.

While others focus on catastrophic mechanical failure or some sort of

accident, Malaysian police say they're looking at the following

possibilities including hijacking, sabotage or psychological problems with

the passengers or crew.

The surveillance video may help police understand the intentions of the two

imposters.

SOT BRAD GARRETT, FORMER FBI AGENT, ABC NEWS CONSULTANT 21:35:44

Are they operating together? Do they talk? And are they acting strange while

they're in line or moving along?

The Malaysian government has given the surveillance footage to the FBI - and

also fingerprints and photographs of the imposters recovered at the airport

.

Authorities in Thailand are questioning the owners of these travel agencies,

-which sold the one-way tickets used by the imposters. ABC NEWS has learned

they were purchased at the same time by an Iranian man, known as Mr. Ali.

Some investigators believe that suggests the men coordinated their

activities.

WEATHER-WX WALL


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.

"A warm Tuesday"

It was a beautiful start to the week across Southwest Florida, with cool mornings and warm afternoons. Our stretch of dry weather will continue through Tuesday, before showers make a return to the area by Wednesday.

After low clouds and a few areas of patchy fog, mostly sunny skies will prevail through the mid day hours. A few high clouds will move in from the west this afternoon, keeping our skies mostly to partly sunny at tims. As winds start to veer more out of the south/southwest, expect daytime highs to warm quickly this afternoon. Away from the coast, expect thermometer readings in the lower to middle 80s, while beaches and coastal locations are a few degrees cooler due to the gulf breeze kicking in.

Clouds will increase a bit tonight and temperatures will be even milder, as they settle into the lower to middle 60s area wide.

By mid week, we'll be tracking another system traversing the Gulf of Mexico. This will keep more clouds than sun across the region on Wednesday with scattered showers back in the forecast. As the cold front passes by late Wednesday and into early Thursday, cooler and drier weather will return in its wake. Daytime highs will return to the middle 70s, with morning lows in the upper 40s by Friday. This will set the stage for another delightful weekend with mostly to partly sunny skies and comfortable humidity values. Return to index of stories...

HEALTH MATTERS-ON CAM


MANY PEOPLE WHO COULD BENEFIT FROM A COLONOSCOPY ARE NOT GETTING THEM.

AND THAT'S FRUSTRATING TO DOCTORS, BECAUSE THE PROCEDURE SAVES LIVES.

IN YOUR HEALTH MATTERS AMY OSHIER GIVES US A CLOSER LOOK AT THE BENEFITS. Return to index of stories...


HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


PKG:

MAYBE IT'S EMBARRASSMENT, MISCONCEPTIONS OR FEAR OF THE

UNKNOWN. DOCTORS AREN'T SURE WHY MORE PEOPLE DON'T TAKE

ADVANTAGE OF ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL CANCER SCREENERS EVER-

THE COLONOSCOPY.

DR. IRMA CRUZ/GASTROENTEROLOGIST

RUNS:

:34 Colon cancer is one of the most common cancers in this country and it is one of the

leading causes of cancer death. But doesn't have to be that way.

IT'S RECOMMENDED FOR PEOPLE FIFTY AND OLDER, YOUNGER WITH A FAMILY

HISTORY- THE COLONOSCOPY IS A PAINLESS, IN-OFFICE PROCEDURE. IT ACTUALLY

STARTS THE EVENING BEFORE WITH FASTING AND A COLON CLEANSE.

DR. IRMA CRUZ/GASTROENTEROLOGIST

RUNS:

2:14 It should be very clean so we can see.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

Performed under sedation, doctors inspect the lining of the large intestine- which

averages about 5 feet long. They enter through the rectum with a flexible scope that has

a light and camera.

DR. IRMA CRUZ/GASTROENTEROLOGIST

RUNS:

3:42 Basically we're looking for polyps which are normal growths in the lining and we can

remove them and this decreases the chances of getting colon cancer.

HERE'S WHAT DOCTORS SEE AS THEY MANEUVER THE SCOPE THROUGH THE COLON.

DEMO

RUNS:

1:07 There's several types of polyps. Some of them are flat

like this. Some of them are pedunculated meaning they have a stock.

USING A SNARE- THEY SNIP THE POLYP- THIS IS A DEMO OF HOW IT'S DONE.

DEMO - colonoscopy tool

RUNS:

:37 We open the snare- we place it over the polyp. We close the snare and the polyp is

removed.

THE GOAL IS TO NIP POLYPS IN THE BUD, BEFORE THEY BECOME DISEASED.

COLONOSCOPY IS THE ONLY SCREENING TEST WITH THE ABILITY TO PREVENT CANCER.

DEMO

5:01 Still only 50 percent of people that should have colonoscopies actually have the

procedure.

SCOPING OUT THE PROCEDURE- MAY HELP PEOPLE CONFRONT THEIR FEARS. FOR LEE

MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM I'M AMY OSHIER. Return to index of stories...
