  • Officials have euthanized a mountain lion that attacked a toddler on a trail at a California park, Orange County officials said. According to CNN and the Desert Sun, the attack happened after 4 p.m. local time Monday as a family visited Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park. “The mountain lion came out of somewhere and grabbed the 3-year-old by the neck and dragged him a short distance,” Capt. Tony Bommarito of the Orange County Fire Authority told the Desert Sun. The child’s father then sprang into action, hurling a backpack at the mountain lion, Bommarito said. The animal set the boy free and went for the backpack before climbing a tree, the outlets reported. After the family fled to safety, the boy was treated at a hospital, authorities said. Orange County deputies said the boy is “OK,” the Desert Sun reported. Officials euthanized the cougar with permission from the state’s Department of Fish and Wildlife, the outlets reported.

  • Central Floridians are waking up to the coldest temperatures of the season so far. WFTV Meteorologist Brian Shields strongly suggests  you have extra layers on before you head out the door Tuesday morning. Shields says temperatures will be in the 30’s and 40’s to begin the day and winds will keep things cool as the day progresses.  The highs will only reach the upper 50’s.  And there is more to come, freeze watches are in place for inland Volusia, Lake and Sumter counties for Tuesday evening in what is expected to be the coldest night of the season so far. Is it cold? YES! But this cold snap is nothing compared to what happened almost exactly 43-years-ago when snow flurries fell all across the Sunshine State - even in Miami! On January 19, 1977 a strong cold front combined with a high-pressure area bringing both snow and record low temperatures to Florida and the Bahamas. Snow flurries were spotted in Miami between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m., but officially a trace of snow was measured in Lake Worth.  No snow had ever been reported in southeastern Florida before or since. In the Bahamas, people stopped their cars and emerged from their homes to see the white flakes,  marking the only known snowfall in the 358-year history of the island country.  The thermometer across most of Florida stayed below freezing for 10-14 hours.  A record low of 20 degrees Fahrenheit was recorded in Orlando, the mercury hovered near 27 in West Palm and around 40 in the Keys.  A severe freeze caused an estimated $350 million in damaged to citrus crops throughout the state.  The distracting conditions caused several car accidents, most notably a 10 car pile-up in Tampa.  Then President Jimmy Carter declared 35 counties in Florida disaster areas.
  • A group of 'furries' is being credited with saving a San Jose woman who was being assaulted. The incident occurred over the weekend as FurCon -- San Jose's convention for people who like to dress in furry animal costumes -- was letting out for the evening, police say.  One of the convention's attendees, who wasn't in costume, was with a group of furry friends when he heard a commotion from a vehicle parked on the side of the street.  'It was pretty intense,' says 26-year-old Steven Rodriguez.  'We saw the passenger just whaling on her. Just a full-on punch.'  So Rodriguez and another man pulled the assailant out of the vehicle, only for the man to attack them, Rodriguez says. That's when the furries took action.  A pink dinosaur, a tiger, a cat and a platform shoes-wearing cowboy grabbed the man, threw him to the ground and sat on him until police arrived, according to an incident report. Mobile users see video here.  *WARNING: VULGAR LANGUAGE USED* Demetri Hardnett, 22, was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence.  'It happened very, very fast and it was just a horrible thing to see,' Rodriguez says.  'But overall, everyone was very happy that we stepped in.
  • A suspect is still on the loose after shooting at a house and killing a 10-year-old Memphis, Tennessee, boy playing outside Sunday. That 10-year-old was identified as Jadon Knox. WHBQ spoke to Jadon’s aunt, Twanda, who said the family wants justice. “Jadon was the life of our family. Very, very funny. He loves to keep everyone laughing,” Twanda said. A friend of Jadon’s said they were sitting on a front porch when someone pulled in front of the house and began firing. “This is murder. You killed him. You took his life. He was only 10. His life had not even started,” said Twanda. This investigation is still ongoing. If you have any information about this shooting, call Memphis police at 528-CASH. A GoFundMe has been started to help the family with Jadon’s funeral arrangements, according to the GoFundMe page. If you would like to donate, click here. A candlelight vigil will be held Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at Josephine and Carnes.

  • A GOP rules plan for the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump unveiled by Senate Republicans on Monday could pave the way for the trial to be finished in as little as two weeks, as the plan envisions squeezing 48 hours of opening arguments into just four days, with the option of voting on the impeachment articles without any additional witnesses or evidence. 'Just because the House proceedings were a circus that doesn’t mean the Senate’s trial needs to be,' said Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), who fully endorsed the proposal from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. While GOP Senators said the plan would be modeled on a bipartisan rules deal at the start of the Clinton impeachment trial, there were two notable differences from 21 years ago, governing opening arguments, and the submission of evidence. While each side would get 24 hours to make their opening arguments, this GOP plan would force that time to be used in just two days - raising the specter of an impeachment trial which could stretch well into the night because of those time constraints. Another change would require an affirmative vote by the Senate to simply put the investigatory materials from the House into the trial record, something which was done automatically in the Clinton impeachment trial. Also, even if extra witnesses were approved by Senators, it would not guarantee their testimony on the Senate floor, as there would have to be a vote after the depositions on whether the witness would testify publicly. With a Tuesday debate set on the rules, Republicans also made clear they would not support any move to add witnesses until after opening arguments have been completed. 'If attempts are made to vote on witnesses prior to opening arguments, I would oppose those efforts,' said Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT). Meanwhile, Democrats roundly denounced the GOP rules details. 'The proposal that Majority Leader McConnell just released looks more like a cover up than a fair trial,' said Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE). 'Mitch McConnell doesn't want a fair trial, he wants a fast trial,' said Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI). 'It's all about the cover up,' said Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT). 'These are not the Clinton rules.' 'There’s nothing in this resolution that requires hearing witnesses or admitting evidence — which is unlike any trial I’ve ever seen,' said Sen. Tina Smith (D-MN). 'Under this resolution, Senator McConnell is saying he doesn’t want to hear any of the existing evidence, and he doesn’t want to hear any new evidence,' said Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer, who promised to offer amendments to the plan on Tuesday afternoon. Debate and votes on the rules resolution will start on Tuesday afternoon - and could turn into an extended battle on the floor of the U.S. Senate.
