Better rain chances arrive on Tuesday as the storm system rolls through the area. Expect plenty of clouds as well with highs in the mid 80s.

PISTORIUS TRIAL-PKG


ITS ONE OF THE CRITICAL QUESTIONS OF THE CASEDID PISTORIUS WARN HIS MODEL

GIRLFRIEND THAT HE BELIEVED THERE WERE INTRUDERS INSIDE HIS HOME BEFORE

SHOOTING HER?

NEL

"Why did you not check with her?She's awake. Did you not say 'Reeva did

you hear that?'

Pistorius:

"There was no doubt in my mind that I heard what I heard, my lady. I didn't

need confirmation. I didn't ask her."

Nel:

"We never asked if asked if you asked for confirmation. I asked, did you not

say to her: 'Reeva, did you hear that?"

Pistorius:

No, my lady.

PISTORIUS HAD TESTIFIED HE TOLD REEVA TO GET DOWN AND CALL THE POLICE.BUT

THIS MORNING ADMITTED HE DIDN'T CHECK TO SEE IF SHE HAD DONE SO

Nel

"A reasonable person would have looked where Reeva was. Looked if she was

safe. And if she panicked. But you didn't. You just grabbed the gun."

EARLIER THE LEAD PROSECUTOR QUESTIONED WHY THE BLADERUNNER WOULD BELIEVE AN

INTRUDER BROKE INTO HIS HOME WHEN HE HAD SUCH AN ELABORATE ALARM SYSTEM.

Nel:

"you said 'I deactivated my alarm in my room"

P:

"That's correct, my lady."

Nel:

"Now, you don't know.

Nel:

That cannot make sense. It's just two different things. You're tailoring as

we go."

PISTORIUS CONTINUED TO FIGHT BACK TEARS ON HIS THIRD DAY OF CROSS

EXAMINATION UNABLE TO ANSWER WETHER HIS HOME ALARM WAS ON THAT NIGHT

CAUSING THE JUDGE TO ASK IF THE OLYMIPAN HAD RUN OUT OF STAMINA

Judge Thokozile Masipa -

"Mr. Pistorius, it's important that you should be all here when you're in

that witness box. You understand that?"

Pistorius:

"I do, my lady."

Judge Thokozile Masipa:

"So if you are tired, and the reason you're making all these mistakes

because you are tired, you must say so."

So when Pistorius is under cross examination in the courtroom right here

behind me under South African judicial system he is not allowed to confer

with his lawyer so he is in the witness stand completely on his own.

Nel:

Why would this question make you emotional?

Pistorius:

Because this is how I lost the person I cared about. I don't know how people

don't understand that.

Nel:

My lady, I'm keeping quiet because the witness is clearly in distress.

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.

After another cool start, expect plenty of warmth as move into the afternoon.

We'll see mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies through the PM hours, with highs climbing into the mid 80s. Temps this evening will slowly drop into the 70s.

The atmosphere is far too dry and stable to mention any significant rain chance, and most of us should end up staying dry through the weekend with rain chances only at 20%.

The main focus over the weekend will be temperatures as the warming trend continues across Southwest Florida. Daytime highs over the weekend will climb into the mid to upper 80s, and a few locations may even flirt with 90 degrees by Sunday afternoon.

Looking ahead to next week, the next decent chance for rain will come in the Tuesday/Wednesday time frame as a weak cool front slides down the Florida peninsula.

This next front won't be as strong as the last one, so don't expect much of a cool down once it passes by the second half of the week. Return to index of stories...

HEALTH MATTERS-ON CAM


IF YOUR HEART COULD TALK, IT MIGHT BE ABLE TO TELL YOU WHEN THERE'S A PROBLEM.

NOW DOCTORS ARE USING ADVANCED TECHNIQUES THAT ESSENTIALLY GET YOUR HEART TO OPEN UP.

IT GOES A LONG WAY IN DIAGNOSING A COMMON CONDITION LINKED TO STROKE.

AMY OSHIER REPORTS IN TODAYS HEALTH MATTERS. Return to index of stories...


HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


IT'S COMMON SPEAK TO SAY SOMETHING MADE YOUR HEART FLUTTER. BUT

IN MANY CASES, IT'S TRUE. AND IT CAN BE A SIGN OF SOMETHING SERIOUS.

DR. ROBERT CROSS/CARDIOLOGIST

RUNS:

2:04 When people have a stroke, especially younger patients, there's an extensive

workup done to find the reason they had the stroke. A lot of times there's not an

initial diagnostic cause that you were able to find. A lot of times these what they call

cryptogenic strokes are caused by arrythmias.

AN ARRYTHMIA IS A TERM USED TO DESCRIBE AN IRREGULAR HEARTBEAT.

SOMETIMES CALLED A QUIVERING HEART. THE MOST COMMON FORM, AFIB-

OR ATRIAL FIBRILATION, HAS LONG BEEN LINKED TO A HIGHER STROKE RISK.

IT MEANS THE UPPER CHAMBER OF THE HEART IS OFF-BEAT. THE DANGER

ARISES IF LEFT-OVER BLOOD POOLS IN THE HEART AND CAUSES CLOTS TO

FORM.

DR. ROBERT CROSS/CARDIOLOGIST

RUNS:

3:15 Afib is the cause of embolic stoke. A clot that forms in the left atrium of the heart

because of the arrhythmia, then breaks off and goes up into the brain.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

Afib is also linked to so-called silent strokes. People may not realize they suffered

one, but damage from a stroke shows up later on an MRI. Which is why cardiologists

are often going hi-tech, using an implantable loop recorder to get arrythmias to reveal

themselves.

DR. ROBERT CROSS/CARDIOLOGIST

RUNS:

2:32 It's a wireless system that monitors the patients to see if they have any of these

arrythmias which sometimes could take months to manifest themselves.

DETERMINING WHAT YOUR QUIVERING HEART MAY BE TELLING YOU, IS

IMPORTANT FOR DOCTORS IN DETERMINING YOUR TREATMENT. AND

IMPORTANT FOR YOU- IN LOWERING THE RISK OF STROKE. FOR LEE

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