USA Update

Rick Lord A police pursuit down the freeways of California, a real cliffhanger in Texas, and manning up to save a manatee in Florida on this USA Update

EYEWITNESS ONLINE WEBCAST VIDEO


California... a high speed pursuit in California after a car was stolen in Los Alamitos. Police chased the silver Toyota Camry down the 405 freeway through Seal Beach. It finally ended east of the 605 freeway after a pit maneuver by CHP officers. The driver then quickly exited the car and surrendered without further incident. No injuries were reported...

Texas... a luxury lakeside home is hanging off a cliff and about to fall into Lake Whitney, just south of Ft. Worth. There appears to be a large crack in the cliff the home was built on, with one section already giving way. No one is currently living in the house, which was built seven years ago, and is worth about $800,000 (right now at least)...

Florida... wildlife crews rescued a manatee stuck in a drainage culvert. It somehow made its way into the Clam Bayou in St. Petersburg during high tide, but couldn't get himself back out to open waters. The manatee was measured, photographed, and micro-chipped, and will be released back into the wild once its handlers feel its safe to do so. And that's been a helpful USA Update.
