VENICE PLANE CRASH-PICTOPS DBX


WE BEGIN TONIGHT WITH BREAKING NEWS.

A FATHER IS DEAD, HIS DAUGHTER FIGHTING FOR HER LIFE TONIGHT AFTER GETTING HIT BY A PLANE MAKING AN EMERGENCY LANDING ON A CROWDED FLORIDA BEACH.

chloe. At this time we can confirm one man has died out here from the injuries he sustained.,. After a small plane was forced to make an emergency landing on the sand. Return to index of stories...


VENICE PLANE CRASH-VOWIPE


VO

Take a look at this video -- you can clearly see the plane sitting on the shoreline.

Sheriffs deputies tell me around 2:45 this afternoon, the pilot of this plane sent out a distress signal. It's not clear what was wrong with the plane, but we're told he was unable to reach the nearby airport.

As a last resort, the pilot was told to make an emergency landing along shoreline here. Deputies tell me he was trying to land on the hard-packed sand right along the waters edge.

While the pilot was successful in doing that, were told he hit two bystanders in the process -- a father walking along the shoreline with his young daughter. The father died from his injuries, the daughter was taken by helicopter to a hospital in Saint Petersburg.

Deputies tell us this all happened so quickly, there was no time to warn those on the beach. Return to index of stories...

The fast-moving Ebola virus has struck two Americans in Liberia - both

health care workers risking their lives to stamp out a deadly outbreak in

West Africa.

Dr. Kent Brantly cared for patients inside this isolation center in Liberia,

seen here with his wife and young children, who are now home in the U.S.

A second American health care worker, Nancy Writebol, also tested positive.

And word today a Liberian doctor has died from the disease.

SOT Dr. Richard Besser

"When you look at Ebola outbreaks, the group that is at highest risk of

actually getting it is health care workers."

You can see Doctor Brantly here with the head-to-toe protective gear he must

wear when treating Ebola patients - with not an inch of skin exposed.

SOT Ken Isaacs, Samaritan's Purse VP Program and Government Relations

"We are doing everything that we can to keep our staff safe, but the reality

is it is a deadly disease and it is easily spread."

We don't know yet how the two Americans got infected.

SOT Dr. Richard Besser

"It's not like measles or the flu, where if you are in the same area you are

gonna get sick, you have to have touched secretions from that person or

contaminated area."

THIS YEAR, THE HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS DISEASE SPREAD TO 3 WEST AFRICAN COUNTRIES.

MORE THAN 600 ARE DEAD.

SOT Dr. RIchard Besser.

"People are very concerned about this outbreak, because it's been going on

for so many months, and it's not just isolated to one region of a country,

it's three countries."

Dr. Brantly is listed in stable condition. His colleagues tonight calling

for more international assistance to battle the disease. Return to index of stories...

WEATHER FORECAST-PWC ~ WALL


FULL WX

THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE ABC7 WEATHER STAFF.

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

DRY EVENING WITH COASTAL SHOWER CHANCE MONDAY

Dry conditions will abound along the US 41 corridor this evening, with partly cloudy skies and evening temperatures in the 80s.

Throughout the overnight hours, skies will go mostly clear with low temperatures ranging from the upper 70s along the coastline to low 70s for areas east of Interstate 75.

Monday will again be dominated by an onshore wind flow. That means a few showers or isolated downpours could move from the Gulf of Mexico onto Southwest Florida early on Monday morning and perhaps as late as lunchtime. Though coverage of this rain again should remain overall isolated and mainly for areas west of Interstate 75, you will want to note that in your plans.

By the afternoon, the impacts of some relatively drier air in the mid-levels of the atmosphere will help to keep much of the region rather dry for what's considered normal for a late July day. Any rain or thunder that would be able to develop on Monday would most likely be in communities well to the east of the I-75 corridor.

Temperatures on Monday should range from the upper 80s along the coastal cities like Naples, to the low and mid 90s in Fort Myers and Punta Gorda.

Communities like Lehigh Acres, Immokalee and Golden Gate will have a better opportunity for seeing temperatures top 94 on Monday afternoon.

Tuesday's weather could again be met with a morning shower or two along the coastline, but once again a good chunk of the afternoon should remain rather dry.

Showers and a few thunderstorms return to the forecast by Wednesday with a high of 91 degrees in the afternoon.

TROPICAL UPDATE

A tropical wave noted on satellite off the west coast of Africa will be monitored for possible development this week. As of now, the National Hurricane Center is offering this disturbance a 0% chance of organization in the next two days. However, the feature is moving into an area of the Atlantic Ocean that is a bit more favorable for storms. We will continue to monitor the situation and bring you updates throughout the week.

Other than the previously mentioned tropical wave, there are no tropical cyclones active in the Gulf of Mexico or Caribbean Sea and none are expected to develop within the next two days. Return to index of stories...
