Guatemalan mom to sue U.S. after baby treated at ICE facility dies weeks later

Channel 10 news - Wed, 08/29/2018 - 12:03

A Guatemalan mother who says her baby died after falling ill in a Texas immigration facility is planning to sue the U.S. government. Border agents apprehended Yazmin Juarez, 20, and 19-month-old Mariee in March after they entered the U.S. seeking asylum. Juarez blames inadequate medical care for her baby's death six and half weeks later.

Juarez fled Guatemala with her daughter because she feared for their safety, but she never imagined her dream of coming to the U.S. would end like this. Now she's seeking not only millions of dollars in a series of lawsuits, but justice for her only child, reports CBS News correspondent Mireya Villarreal.

"She had an amazing smile and chubby cheeks. She had never had any serious medical conditions or chronic medical conditions of any kind. She was a healthy kid," said Stanton Jones, Juarez's lawyer.

Lawyers said medical staff at ICE's South Texas Family Residential Center examined and cleared Mariee for custody in March. Jones said within days, the toddler developed a respiratory infection after sharing a room with other children, some of whom were sick.

"What started with a cough and congestion and runny nose, turned into intermittent fevers ... sometimes spiking as high as over 104 degrees," Jones said.

Juarez's lawyers said medical staff prescribed an antibiotic, Tylenol, and honey among other treatments, but Mariee's health continued to decline.

"The medical care that Mariee received inside Dilley was woefully inadequate, neglectful and substandard," Jones said.

Legal papers filed Tuesday say Mariee was still sick when she and her mother were released to live with family in New Jersey. Hours later, the child was admitted to the hospital. Six and a half weeks later, Mariee died.

"It was unimaginably painful for Yazmin," Jones said.

Lawyers said Mariee suffered irreversible brain and organ damage. ICE declined to comment on Mariee's case due to the pending litigation. But in a statement the agency said it "takes very seriously the health, safety and welfare of those in our care ... including providing access to necessary and appropriate medical care."

"To Yazmin justice means more than just money," Jones said, adding, "Nothing can ever bring her daughter back … but she wants to make sure that this never happens again."

Lawyers for Juarez are preparing multiple lawsuits. The first seeks $40 million in damages from an Arizona city, which serves as the government's prime contractor for the Dilley, Texas center. Lawyers for the city did not respond to our request for comment.

Homeless Samaritan suing couple who raised funds to help him

Channel 10 news - Wed, 08/29/2018 - 10:58

MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. (AP) — A homeless man whose selfless act of using his last $20 to fill up the gas tank of a stranded motorist in Philadelphia got him worldwide attention is suing the couple who led a $400,000 fundraising campaign to help him.

Johnny Bobbitt says he's concerned that Mark D'Amico and Katie McClure have mismanaged a large part of the donations raised for him on GoFundMe . The New Jersey couple denies the claims, saying they're wary of giving Bobbitt large sums because they feared he would buy drugs.

Bobbitt's lawsuit contends the couple committed fraud by taking money from the fundraising campaign for themselves. He's seeking undisclosed damages, and his lawyers want a judge to appoint someone to oversee the account.

A hearing on the lawsuit is scheduled for Thursday.

McClure set up the online fundraiser page as a way to give back to Bobbitt, who came to her aid when she ran out of gas on an Interstate 95 exit ramp late one night. It raised more than $400,000 in funds donated by more than 14,000 people.

Bobbitt walked a few blocks to buy McClure gas. She didn't have money to repay him at the time, but sought him out days later to give him the money, and visited him a few more times to bring food and water. They later appeared on shows like "Good Morning America" and were interviewed by the BBC.

But the relationship has since gone sour.

Christopher C. Fallon, one of Bobbitt's lawyers, told The Philadelphia Inquirer that the legal action was taken after D'Amico ignored multiple requests for a full accounting of the money raised by the GoFundMe campaign.

"He's really left us with no choice but to go forward," said Fallon, one of two pro bono lawyers from Cozen O'Connor in Philadelphia whom Bobbitt retained last week.

McClure and D'Amico have repeatedly denied any wrongdoing or misusing any of the money. D'Amico has said Bobbitt spent $25,000 in less than two weeks in December on drugs, in addition to paying overdue legal bills and sending money to his family.

The couple also bought Bobbitt a camper with some of the funds and parked it on land McClure's family owns in Florence. But Bobbitt became homeless again after D'Amico told him in June that he had to leave the property.

During an appearance Monday on NBC's "Megyn Kelly Today" show, D'Amico told Kelly there was well over $150,000 left of the donations.

HUNTINGBURG, Ind. — Two baseball fans have tied the knot at a southern Indiana baseball stadium that was featured in the 1992 movie "A League of Their Own."

Kristopher Weisheit and Brittany Birk took their vows Saturday at home plate in League Stadium in Huntingburg. Their groomsmen and bridesmaids lined up along the first and third baselines.

The (Jasper) Herald reports that the wedding was the first ever held at League Stadium. Maintenance foreman Dale Payne says he's "surprised that nobody had asked before then."

Final farewells to Sen. John McCain begin at Arizona Capitol

Channel 10 news - Wed, 08/29/2018 - 06:36

PHOENIX (AP) — Family, friends and constituents will gather Wednesday at Arizona's Capitol to pay their respects to Sen. John McCain, the first of two days of services here before he departs the state he has represented since the 1980s.

A private ceremony will be held Wednesday morning at the Arizona State Capitol Museum rotunda, where McCain will lie in state. That ceremony will include remarks from Gov. Doug Ducey and former U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl, plus a benediction from Sen. Jeff Flake. It will also mark the first appearance of McCain's family members since the longtime Arizona senator died of brain cancer on Saturday at age 81.

Later that afternoon, the Capitol will be open to members of the public who want to pay their respects. The viewing will go on as long as people are waiting in line, Rick Davis, McCain's former presidential campaign manager, said Monday.

For some Arizona residents, McCain has been a political fixture in the state for their entire lives. He took office in Arizona in the early 1980s, first as a congressman and then as a senator in the seat once held by Sen. Barry Goldwater.

Crews spent the past several days prepping the Capitol for the visitors, hauling in chairs, cleaning up the building and assembling dozens of flags. McCain is the third person to lie in state in the rotunda in the last 40 years; others were Arizona State Senator Marilyn Jarrett in 2006 and Olympic gold medalist Jesse Owens, a Tucson resident, in 1980.

Thursday morning will see a procession through Phoenix on the way to a memorial service at North Phoenix Baptist Church, with the public invited to line the route along Interstate 17.

The memorial service will see multiple tributes, readings and musical performances, including a tribute from former Vice President Joe Biden. Musical choices include a performance of "Amazing Grace" by the Brophy Student Ensemble and a recessional to "My Way" by Frank Sinatra.

From there, McCain will depart Arizona for the last time from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

Another viewing will be at the U.S. Capitol on Friday, with a final memorial service at the Washington National Cathedral.

A website laying out details for the services says to send any flowers to a local VA hospital.

Fire Dept: 2 workers die in scaffolding collapse near Disney

Channel 10 news - Wed, 08/29/2018 - 04:52

ORLANDO, Fla (AP) — Emergency responders say two construction workers fell to their deaths when scaffolding collapsed above the sixth floor of a hotel under construction near Disney World. A third worker managed to hang on and climb to safety early Wednesday.

The accident happened in Orange County just outside Disney property, according to Fire Rescue spokesman Mike Jachles.

He says there were about 18 workers at the scene when they got the call about the accident at 4:15 a.m. They were working at the top of the hotel, above the sixth floor, where concrete is being poured. Jachles says that the support structure gave way, sending two workers plummeting to their deaths. The third worker sustained minor injuries.

Jachles says the sheriff's office and federal investigators are examining what happened.

Cape Cod shark attack victim: I punched it in gills to escape

Channel 10 news - Wed, 08/29/2018 - 04:49

The man bitten by a shark off Cape Cod this month said on Tuesday he escaped by punching the powerful predator in the gills after it clamped down on his leg. In his first interview since the Aug. 15 attack, William Lytton said he'd been swimming in about "8 to 10 feet" of water off Truro, Massachusetts, when he felt an incredible pain shoot through his left leg and quickly realized he was being attacked by a shark.

The 61-year-old neurologist from Scarsdale, New York, said he gave the animal a strong smack in the gills with his left hand, a move that likely saved his life but also resulted in some torn tendons. He now sports an arm cast as well as bandages and a brace around most of his left leg.

"I initially was terrified, but, really, there was no time to think," he said, recounting the ordeal following a physical therapy session at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston, where he's been since Sunday. "It doesn't feel like I did anything heroic. A lot of this was luck."

Lytton said he must have recalled from nature documentaries that the gills were one of the most vulnerable parts of the shark.

After the animal broke its grip, he took a few strong stokes back to shore where he shouted for help. Someone alerted his wife, who had been on the beach with their two young daughters and family friends.

Other beachgoers - including off duty nurses and other medical professionals - helped stem the bleeding and carried him up the dunes to the beach parking lot as he started to lose consciousness from the blood loss.

"The pain was really excruciating," Lytton said. "I remember the helicopter landing and then nothing for the next two days."

Lytton was airlifted to Tufts Medical Center in Boston, where he said he was placed into a two-day coma, underwent six surgeries and had nearly 12 pints of blood pumped into him.

The professor at SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn said he's grateful to be alive, but knows he has weeks more of rehab - and at least one more surgery - before he's back on his feet.

The shark, fortunately, missed critical nerves and veins and didn't leave major bone damage, though pieces of shark teeth were cleaned out of his wounds and his bandages cover "hundreds" of sutures used to stitch back together muscles and skin, Lytton said.

"It looks very artistic," he said diplomatically of his battle wounds.

Lytton was transferred on Sunday to Spaulding, a rehabilitation hospital where many of the most severely injured survivors of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing were treated. He is expected to be there around two weeks before eventually returning to New York for possibly more rehab.

Lytton said he isn't in any rush to wade back into the ocean waters off Cape Cod, where he spends nearly every summer doing research.

"It's kind of terrifying thinking about it," he said. "I know it's not the best thing to say, but I didn't like sharks before, and like them even less now."

Lytton's wife, June, said she hopes the attack is a warning for others to take shark safety seriously.

"It's still not real to me," she said Tuesday standing at her husband's side. "It happened so close to shore. I never thought that could happen."

State biologists are working to determine what type of shark was involved in the attack, which was the first in Massachusetts waters since 2012. The state's last fatal attack was in 1936.

Meanwhile, shark sightings have continued to close Cape Cod beaches as the tourist destination prepares for Labor Day weekend and the last big hurrah of the summer.

A CBS Boston helicopter spotted what appeared to be a great white shark in the water near where Lytton was bitten shortly afterwards.

The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, a group that raises awareness of sharks, says these types of incidents are usually a case of mistaken identity.

"Encounters with white sharks in which people suffer injuries are as terrifying as they are rare," the group said in a statement. "Sharks 'test the waters' with their teeth, much like we use our hands. It is how they determine if what they encounter is prey or something to avoid."

4.4 magnitude earthquake shakes Southern California, near Los Angeles

Channel 10 news - Wed, 08/29/2018 - 04:36

A 4.4 magnitude earthquake struck Southern California around 7:33 p.m. local time Tuesday night, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

The quake was centered about three miles north of La Verne, California, in the San Gabriel Valley. The epicenter was located about 25 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.

USGS said a 3.4 quake followed a minute later.

The Associated Press reported that the main temblor was widely felt as either a sharp jolt near the epicenter or a rolling motion further away. It shook buildings for several seconds in downtown Los Angeles.

The earthquake was felt some 40 miles away in Sylmar to the northwest and 30 miles south in Huntington Beach, AP said.

CBS Los Angeles cited seismologist Lucy Jones who said Tuesday's quake should not be expected to have done damage to structures.

Jones explained the quake wasn't on the Sierra Madre fault -- one of the largest in the region -- but on an ancillary structure.

Ohio State says Texas' Herman was with Smith at strip club

Channel 10 news - Wed, 08/29/2018 - 04:32

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State University has identified Texas head football coach Tom Herman as the Buckeyes assistant who went with Zach Smith to a Florida strip club when they were both Buckeyes assistants in 2014.

University spokesman Chris Davey told the Columbus Dispatch on Tuesday that Herman was the Buckeyes assistant who was mentioned but unnamed in a 23-page investigation report of Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer's handling of domestic abuse accusations against Smith.

Ohio State has said Smith ran up a "significant bill" of nearly $600 of his own money at a Miami-area strip club in May 2014. Ohio State could face an NCAA inquiry if the Buckeyes assistants paid for high school coaches who were present.

Texas officials did not immediately comment.

Herman was the offensive coordinator at Ohio State in 2014 and left to be the head coach at Houston in 2015.

Student allegedly rips MAGA hat off classmate's head, slaps teacher, facing battery charges

Channel 10 news - Wed, 08/29/2018 - 04:18

A Union Mine High School student is facing battery charges after an altercation in her classroom over a Donald Trump "Make America Great Again" campaign hat, reports CBS Sacramento. In cellphone video, a teacher is seen trying to subdue fired-up 17-year-old senior Jo-Ann Butler after she became enraged at a classmate for wearing the MAGA hat.

She grabbed the hat off his head.

"That's a racist and hateful symbol," Butler said.

She is now facing two counts of battery, one on her classmate and one on her teacher, who deputies say she slapped as he escorted her from the room.

Butler says she made the scene to express her political feelings.

"Maybe just wake people up in some type of way, because it's not cool, the environment our classroom is in," Butler said.

Her father says he doesn't approve of the way she behaved in class. "Wasn't handled the way I'd like it," Chris Butler said.

Now he's faced with the legal impact of his daughter's alleged criminal act.

All centered around the political divide across the country.

"I don't agree with grabbing someone's hat and verbally talking to them in that way," Chris Butler said. "But as far as the issue being brought up, maybe this is something that needs to be brought up."

The El Dorado Union High School District's clothing policy allows students to wear political symbols.

A statement released by the district reads:

"… Student and staff safety is our highest priority and the UMHS administration will continue to cooperate with the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office as the incident is being investigated."

Besides her arrest, Jo-Ann Butler has been suspended from school for a week.

The El Dorado County District Attorney will likely decide later this week whether she will be formally charged.

Greenlawn Avenue ramp to close after Labor Day

Channel 10 news - Wed, 08/29/2018 - 03:51

Drivers on the south side are used to traffic changes but a new temporary ramp closure could throw some people off.

The entrance ramp from Greenlawn Avenue to I-71 northbound will close Thursday, September 6 at 9 a.m. for 15 days.

According to the Ohio Department of Transportation, the closure, which is part of the $113 million south side construction project, is necessary to rebuild the ramp and finish a project constructing the flood wall that runs along the highway.

To get around the closed ramp, ODOT suggests two detours:

Greenlawn Avenue to north on Harmon Rd to W Mound Street to I-70 east or

Greenlawn Ave to south on High Street to SR-104 west to I-71 north.

The ramp is expected to reopen on Saturday, September 22, weather permitting.

The South Side Mega Fix started last year in an effort to add a lane in each direction of I-71 between SR-315 and Stringtown Road. It will also build new ramps at the I-71 & I-270 interchange. The project is expected to be completed in 2020.

Police warn new scam in central Ohio hits victims twice

Channel 10 news - Wed, 08/29/2018 - 03:33

MORROW COUNTY, Ohio - Police in central Ohio are warning people to be on guard for a scam targeting people in the area.

A detective in Morrow County says it starts with a phone call from someone claiming to be an attorney with a large lottery corporation. The so-called attorney tells the person on the other line they've been chosen at random for a second place prize. To get the prize, the victim has to contact the "Gaming Commission" to pay taxes.

After the victim pays the first sum, someone claiming to be a judge contacts them again to say the grand prize winner was ruled ineligible and the victim is the new big winner. Again, the winner just has to pay taxes for that prize to win a million dollars.

According to police, one victim in Morrow County lost money in the six-figure amount.

Central Ohio Crime Stoppers says detectives in Upper Arlington are investigating a similar case.

Crime Stoppers is looking to locate additional victims in Central Ohio. If you or someone you know fell victim to the scam, contact Central Ohio Crime Stoppers at 614-461-8477.
