USA Update

Rick Lord A river rescue in North Carolina, snow stops the shopping in New Jersey, and a troublesome turkey in Pennsylvania on this USA Update

EYEWITNESS ONLINE WEBCAST VIDEO


North Carolina... a woman is rescued from a river after her car slides off the road in Asheville. Icy road conditions led to the wreck but the woman was able to call her husband for help while stuck inside the car. He got there and rescued her before the car filled up with water. She was treated at the scene and then taken to the hospital as a precaution...

New Jersey... a roof collapses under heavy snow at a shopping center in Monroe Township. Several stores had to be closed when the building caved after heavy snow and ice accumulated. Luckily, no one was injured, but this is just one of several similar incidents in this area over the past week...

Pennsylvania... a turkey is trotting around the gas pumps in Washington County. This guy has been hanging around the BP gas station and 7-11 convenience store along route 519 for three weeks now. Employees say the bird likes to hang out on top of the fuel pumps, and chase customers out of the store. Apparently, the turkey also has a sweet tooth for Ho-Ho's. And with that, we've been wingin' it on this USA Update.
