Temperatures on Wednesday will be warmer and more seasonal than yesterday. Highs are likely to reach 93 at Fort Myers, 90 at Naples and 94 at Lehigh Acres.

"People could of been laying out in my yard dead this morning. I'm glad the police were here and the ambulances."

A FIRE THROWER. GO GO DANCERS. AND STRIPPERS. HE SAYS HE SUCCESSFULLY THROUGH THE LARGEST PARTY EVER TO HIT WEST MICHIGAN.

"I didn't force anything down anyone's throat. I didn't make anyone stay here until 7am or 11 or whenever it is that everyone finally left. I didn't make this kid pass out on my floor. People wanted to be here. That was their decision."

AND IT WASN'T JUST OUTSIDE.

"How many people do you think were in your house at one time? Probably at least 500, but that's. 'In this little house?' Oh yah!"

TAYLOR SAYS HIS HOME GOT SO CROWDED. PEOPLE COULDN'T MOVE FROM ONE ROOM TO THE OTHER. AND THE FLOOR BOARDS WERE SHAKING BECAUSE OF THE ALL THE WEIGHT.

"If I walked in here last night, what would I see? You see people, literally, if you wanted to come let's say the garage and you were walking in, it would have taken you 20 minutes to get to here."

TAYLOR SAYS IT WAS A GATHERING TO CELEBRATE A HIGH SCHOOL FRIEND'S BIRTHDAY. AND ALSO A GOODBYE PARTY FOR HIM BEFORE HE MOVES TO CALIFORNIA NEXT WEEK.

TAYLOR SAYS HIS ADDRESS WAS GIVEN OUT AT ABOUT 4 P-M ON SATURDAY. JUST ENOUGH TIME FOR A HEAD'S UP FOR PEOPLE WHO WANTED TO ATTEND, BUT NOT ENOUGH TIME FOR WORD TO GET OUT TO POLICE.

"I guess someone drove all day, during the party day from Tampa all the way to here, just to come to this party."

THE MECOSTA COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICE SAYS AT LEAST TWO THOUSAND PEOPLE. MANY OF THEM UNDER 21 YEARS OLD. ATTENDED THE PARTY. RESULTING IN AT LEAST SIX DRUG OVERDOSES. AND THE SEXUAL ASSAULT OF A 19 YEAR OLD MOUNT PLEASANT WOMAN.

"What do you say to anyone who says you are responsible? I am. It's my house. You got to deal with it afterwards, but apparently it was worth it."

ACCEPTING PART OF THE RESPONSIBLY. TAYLOR SAYS HE WAS UNAWARE ANYONE AT THE PARTY WAS UNDER-AGE. AND SAYS THEIR PARENTS SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE.

"Anytime you point at someone, you got three fingers pointing back at you and if you are a parent that's got a 14 year old child that's been able to be at my house all night, and according to the police there was a lot of them here. So, I think some parents should do some reflections on their parenting before they start getting mad at me."

NOW MORE POPULAR THAN EVER. TAYLOR ISN'T RULING OUT ANOTHER PARTY.

"Any more parties here? There's always a coming home party."

"I feel like anybody that's got a real problem with me partying out here, in the middle of nowhere is a spaz." Return to index of stories...

SOME STORES, HOWEVER, HAVE BEEN RUNNING OUT OF THE ESSENTIALS.

"If you haven't made it out, I would get here soon as possible because things are running pretty bare."

IT'S RARE ENOUGH TO HAVE TWO STORMS SO CLOSE TOGETHER.

.BUT ESPECIALLY RARE FOR HAWAII. WHICH HASN'T HAD A HURRICANE HIT SINCE 1992. AND HAS HAD ONLY 8 NAMED STORMS SINCE THE 1950'S.

THE OPTION OF USING MAGNETIC IMAGING AS A DIAGNOSTIC TOOL HAS BEEN A GAME-CHANGER WITH MANY DISEASES AND MEDICAL CONDITIONS.

IN TODAYS HEALTH MATTERS. AMY OSHIER LOOKS AT BEING MRI SAFE. Return to index of stories...


HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


MILLIONS OF AMERICANS HAVE THEM- HIDDEN OUT OF SIGHT, UNDERNEATH THEIR SKIN. IMPLANTABLE DEVICES MEANT TO FIX WHAT AILS THEM. BUT THESE DEVICES CAN PRESENT PROBLEMS WHEN IT COMES TO GETTING AN MRI.

DR. CORY DUFFEK/NEURORADIOLOGIST

RUNS:

1:29: The MRI machine itself is an incredibly strong magnet, very unique environment and whenever you're placing anything that's metal or anything that's electronic into that environment, you have to make sure that it's safe.

FOR THE MOST PART, BONE PINS, artificial joints and titanium hips, are made of non-magnetic material. Teeth crowns and dentures are also safe. OTHER IMPLANTS MAY PREVENT A PATIENT FROM GETTING THIS FORM OF DIAGNOSTIC TEST.

DR. CORY DUFFEK/NEURORADIOLOGIST

RUNS:

4:01 Like a nerve stimulator or a pace-maker. The other big ones are endovascular stents, coronary artery stents, stents in a patients aorta.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

Over the past few decades, magnets have quadrupled in power and more scans are being performed than ever before. MRIs can detect dozens of serious ailments such as tumor and stroke-without radiation. Time has brought advances in technology- so that many newer devices are MRI-friendly.

DR. GENE MAHANEY/PAIN MANAGEMENT SPECIALIST

RUNS:

1:44: This modality is similar to a pacemaker for pain.

THE USE OF SPINAL CORD STIMULATORS TO ZAP CHRONIC PAIN IS ON THE UPSWING. THESE DEVICES WERE OFF-LIMITS FOR MAGNETIC IMAGING- UNTIL NOW.

DR. GENE MAHANEY/PAIN MANAGEMENT SPECIALIST

RUNS:

2:53 We were sometimes forced to remove devices, obtain an MRI, and re-implant them. Now with some of the new modalities which are considered MRI safe, we can allow people to obtain an MRI down the road without any risk.

MRI-FRIENDLY PACEMAKERS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE NOW- AND OTHER DEVICES ARE CONSIDERED MRI CONDITIONAL.

DR. CORY DUFFEK/NEURORADIOLOGIST

RUNS:

:50 We have to make sure the scanner we're going to scan that patient on meets all of those conditions.

AS MANY AS 70% OF PATIENTS WITH AN IMPLANTED DEVICE WILL NEED AN MRI IN THE FUTURE-SO IT'S IMPORTANT TO PLAY IT SAFE. FOR LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM, I'M AMY OSHIER. Return to index of stories...

STOWAWAY ARREST-PKG


SOT Rep. Eric Swalwell/ California

"This can't happen."

BUT IT DID HAPPEN. AGAIN.

ON MONDAY, SIXTY TWO YEAR OLD MARILYN HARTMAN MANAGED TO BOARD A SOUTHWEST AIRLINES FLIGHT AT SAN JOSE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT HEADED TO LOS ANGELES WITHOUT A TICKET OR A BOARDING PASS.

AFTER THE SOUTHWEST PLANE LANDED AT LAX, THE FLIGHT CREW CONDUCTED A HEAD COUNT. THAT'S WHEN THEY DISCOVERED HARTMAN DID NOT HAVE A TICKET. SHE WAS TAKEN INTO CUSTODY BY AIRPORT POLICE AND ARRESTED.

SOT Rep. Eric Swalwell/ California:28 -:32

"Certainly San Jose has training issues that I think it needs to fix."

TURNS OUT HARTMAN HAS TRIED THIS BEFORE. AT LEAST SIX FAILED ATTEMPTS AT SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT IN THE PAST FEW MONTHS WHERE SHE'D BREACHED THE TSA SECURITY TWICE, BUT NEVER MADE IT ON BOARD, UNTIL NOW.

IT'S THE SECOND MAJOR SECURITY BREACH AT SAN JOSE'S AIRPORT THIS YEAR. IN APRIL, THE AIRPORT MADE NATIONAL HEADLINES WHEN A 15 YEAR OLD JUMPED A SECURITY FENCE AND FLEW TO HAWAII IN THE WHEEL WELL OF A PLANE, SURVIVING SUB-ZERO TEMPERATURES DURING THE FIVE HOUR FLIGHT.

SOT Peter Forman/Pilot Aviation Expert 1:04 - 1:10

"Usually they would not survive for hours on end up there, so it just boggles the mind."

ON TUESDAY, THE TSA RELEASED A STATEMENT ABOUT THE MOST RECENT INCIDENT - SAYING:

"The individual was screened along with all other passengers to ensure that she was not a security threat to the aircraft. The agency has initiated minor modifications to the layout of the document checking area to prevent another incident like this one." Return to index of stories...
