Police officer rescues missing woman with dementia - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Police officer rescues missing woman with dementia from ditch

Good Evening,

Lee Peck from the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working 7 News Nightcast.

We told you at six about a happy ending to a missing person story after an elderly woman with dementia was found by an Lake Charles Police officer in a ditch near her home. Tonight we talk with a family member and the officer who rescued the lady.

Also, a bizarre twist tonight in the case of the New Orleans convenience store employee who put a parking boot on an ambulance responding to an emergency call.

In Healthcast we look at the extreme form of morning sickness that the Duchess of Cambridge is being treated for. KPLC's Britney Glaser explains how it if not closely monitored can be deadly.

Plus, if you've been outside in the last couple of hours you no doubt have started to feel that slight cool down Chief Meteorologist Wade Hampton was talking about. He'll have more on the extended outlook and the much cooler temperatures on the way next week.  

We hope you'll join us for Live at Five and  7 News at Six… until then remember we are online at kplctv.com and on your mobile device.

    This is the first time the group has rehearsed all together. This weekend being the only real preparation. For music director Bob Marcantel, he's only a little stressed out. “My choir members came up to me after the first rehearsal and they said this music's hard, and I said, 'Would you expect anything less?' ” said Marcantel.
