7th arrest in nine months for James Bertrand

Good Friday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's ahead today on Sunrise:

*The man behind the Just for Jesus rallies in Lake Charles is arrested again.  We have details on James Bertrand's seventh arrest over the last nine months.

*18 people die each day waiting on for organ transplants that cannot take place because of the shortage of donated organs.  I find out what's behind the donation shortage crisis and look into the temporary rule change allowing children under age 12 to be considered for adult organs.

*Changes at Moss Regional Hospital in Lake Charles take effect today, including the end of inpatient admissions and surgeries.  We'll detail the transfer of services to Lake Charles Memorial Hospital and West Calcasieu-Cameron Hospitals.

*There are reports this morning that the Obama administration has decided to send more firepower to Syria.  Find out about new evidence that shows Syria's president is using sarin gas against his own people.

*Father's Day is this Sunday and we are celebrating early on Sunrise!  Share your best dad quotes on our KPLC 7News Sunrise facebook page and we might read it on air.

*The extreme heat continues, but will rain bring us a cooldown?  Meteorologist Ben Terry will let us know in the weekend forecast.

Make it a Sunrise day!
