Emergency slides open inside a plane's cabin!

Good morning!

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

The U.S. Supreme Court rules some corporations can hold religious objections that allow them to opt out of the new health law requirement to cover contraceptives for women. However, the court stressed the ruling applies only to corporations that are under the control of just a few people and in which there is no essential difference between the business and its owners – like the Hobby Lobby chain. Look for that story at noon, and you read more about what the ruling means HERE.

Imagine being on a plane and this happens. One of the plane’s emergency slides opens INSIDE the plane’s cabin! At noon, check out the scene that forced the United Airlines pilot to make an emergency landing.

A single vehicle crash on Hwy 26 east of Oberlin last night claims the life of a 72-year-old Oberlin woman. We’ll explain what happened at noon, and you can read more HERE.

A grieving father is fighting for legislation in Texas to add a test to the standard physical given to student athletes – one he says could have saved his son’s life. We’ll see how a simple $15 test could make a difference.

Plus, Chef Jeff is bartending for us as he explains his recipe for a strawberry margarita. You can also find the recipe HERE.

Ben tells me rain will hold off for the first half of the week, but moisture levels remain high, making it very humid. It will feel close to 100 when you factor in the heat index today. What can we expect further into the week and into the Fourth of July? Tune in at noon for Ben’s live, local forecast for the answers, and you can always check out the latest weather conditions HERE.

Remember, if you’re away from the TV at noon, you can always tune in to kplctv.com to watch us online or on your mobile device.

Have a great day, everyone!
