Near-drowning victim in critical condition - WAFF-TV: News, Weather and Sports for Huntsville, AL

Near-drowning victim in critical condition

Good Thursday evening. Here's a check of a few of the stories we're working on for WAFF 48 News at 10.

We're continuing to dig for more details on a near drowning in Huntsville. Emergency crews responded to the Quail Pointe Apartments just before 6 this evening. The victim, a 27-yearold man, wasn't breathing when paramedics got on scene. They got him breathing again, but we're told he's in critical condition tonight at Huntsville Hospital.

We're also continuing to follow the story of a 7-year old student at Endeavor Elementary school who was hit and suffered a broken leg when he was getting off the school bus Wednesday. The driver of the SUV apparently won't be charged because she didn't run the emergency signals on the bus from behind or in front. She was at another road at the intersection with no stop signs when the child ran in to the street. WAFF 48's Sarah Navoy is talking to Huntsville School officials, the transportation officials and Huntsville police about what can be done in cases like this in the future.

And we'll have more on a very special high school graduate taking part in commencement ceremonies this evening in Guntersville. We'll have more on a 73-year old man who served his country in the military and waited 55 years to receive his diploma. The end of his 55-year wait this evening.

We hope you'll join us for these stories and more tonight at 10.
