Search called off for possible drowning victim; furloughs begin for federal employees

A day of fishing turns into tragedy in Colbert County. Rescue workers have called off a search for the night for a man who jumped into Cane Creek to save his daughter. Details tonight on the girl and the search for her father.

Furloughs start this week for thousands of federal employees. It's expected to save billions in defense spending. But what kind of impact will furloughs have on the employees and our local economy? Charles Molineaux takes a look at that tonight at 10.

And what would possess Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle to run around town in a neon pink t-shirt? Tonight, a special presentation by a group the mayor asked to join.

I hope you will join us tonight for WAFF 48 News at 10.

See you then!
