Dead man rises after 45 minutes?!! - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Dead man rises after 45 minutes?!!

Good morning!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.

A Kinder man loses his life in a late night accident north of Highway 190 in Allen Parish. 

Meanwhile, a Vinton man is acquitted in the death of a bus passenger in a 2011 wreck in South Texas.

Also today, they look like a pretty ordinary pair of safety glasses, but they actually do much more for the police officers who are wearing them. They carry tiny cameras that can capture everything at a traffic stop.

Plus, some call it a medical miracle. A man is pronounced dead for 45 minutes, but comes back to life!

In weather, Ben tells me today will be much like yesterday with very few, isolated showers. However, that limited chance of rain means our temperatures will soar into the mid 90's, with the heat index value reaching the 97 to 100 degree mark later today. What about our weekend?   Watch Ben's live, local forecast at noon to find out what you can expect.

And it's the biggest fish in the sea, but not much is known about it – until now. Check out what scientists are learning about whale sharks HERE.

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you join us, and have a great day and a wonderful weekend!

    By sunset this evening the temperatures will start to go down and rain will come to an end. Overnight we will be left with mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid to upper 70s. Rain chances are down to 20% overnight. On Monday will have rain chances go back down to 30%. The same upper level high pressure will be migrating back south closer to our area and will limit, but not quite eliminate, our rain chances. Rain chances are best in the afternoon.
