Fatal Wrestling Move - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Fatal Wrestling Move

     Hello everyone.  This is Cynthia Arceneaux in the KPLC newsroom.  You wonder if it matters what your kids are watching on TV?... This should convince you.   A 13 year old boy in New Orleans was performing WWE wrestling moves on his 5 year old  sister and killed her in the process. When emergency crews arrived on the scene, the little girl was lying on the bathroom floor. She later died at the hospital with a broken rib, lacerations to the liver, and internal bleeding.

A happy ending to the missing man story. 85 year old Leroy Stewart, who'd been missing since Monday, was found this morning on Kirkman Street. The elderly man, who suffers from Alzheimers, high blood pressure, and diabetes had wandered away from the Moss Regional Hospital area, where he was waiting on his wife who had a doctor's appointment. The family is relieved Stewart has been found.

Also coming up on 7News... Fluctuating weather patterns, including a cool spring and heavy rains, are playing havoc with local farmers. We talk to soybean, sugar and rice farmers about the effects of this year's challenges. Join us today for Live at Five and 7news At Six.
