‘Lucky To Be Alive’ Woman’s Near-Death Experience Sparks Change In Folsom

FOLSOM (CBS13) — Doctors are calling a Folsom woman the “1% girl.” In early June, a former high school water polo coach at Bella Vista High School suffered cardiac arrest. She was without oxygen for 10 minutes. Her story is now inspiring an entire community to get CPR training. Lori Durrant works at the D’Artagnan Winery Tasting Room. But on Wednesday the tasting room became a training room, as merchants on Sutter Street get free CPR training. It’s all in honor of Durrant who beat the odds. Doctors say it’s a miracle she’s alive. “It feels good to be back,” Durant said. READ: Woman Claims Smartwatch’s Heart Rate Tracker Saved Her Life Water and Wine. Durrant says that’s what her life has been about until now. Judy Collinsworth with the Folsom Historic District Association says what happened to Durrant outside the tasting room in June shocked the entire community. “Anybody that knows Lori loves her,” said Collinsworth. “She’s such a physically fit person to have this happen to.” “I put my keys in there, and I was just doing that and that was it,” Durant said as…

Bryant’s HR In 8th Gives Cubs Wild 12-11 Win Over Giants

CHICAGO (AP) – Kris Bryant hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the eighth inning to give the Chicago Cubs a 12-11 comeback victory over the San Francisco Giants in a wild, back-and-forth game Wednesday night at Wrigley Field. Nicholas Castellanos and Kyle Schwarber also connected for Chicago, which has won four straight despite losing leads twice in the last four innings. The Cubs moved back into first place in the NL Central by a half-game over St. Louis, which lost to Milwaukee in a rain-shortened game. Castellanos, who went 4 for 5, has homered in three straight games for the second time in his career – he also did it with Detroit in 2016 – and has nine in 19 games since being acquired in a trade before the July 31 deadline. He is batting .392 (31 for 79) with the Cubs. Evan Longoria, Mike Yastrzemski, Stephen Vogt and Kevin Pillar homered for San Francisco, which has dropped three straight. Castellanos led off the eighth with an infield single to set the stage for Bryant, who stroked a 1-1 pitch from Reyes Moronta (3-7) into…

Is It A Bird Or A Bunny? This Optical Illusion Of An Animal Is Confusing The Internet

(CNN) — It’s a bird! It’s a rabbit! No, it’s definitely a bird. But hey, you be the judge. A video of a black animal getting a nice scratch is spreading quickly around the internet as people take sides in yet another great debate. Daniel Quintana, a scientist at the University of Oslo in Norway, is responsible for all this — he found the video on an image-sharing website on Sunday and tweeted it, saying, “Rabbits love getting stroked on their nose.” You see it, right? Since then, it’s blown up — all because Quintana played on a famous optical illusion wherein a rabbit looks like a bird, and a bird looks like a rabbit. His video alone has been viewed millions of times. But here’s the thing: CNN has in fact verified that not only does the video show a bird, it’s specifically an African White-necked Raven named Mischief. He belongs to the World Bird Sanctuary in Valley Park, Missouri, and is 18 years old. Look — here he is saying, “Hi.” The video Quintana posted was taken, at some point, from Paige Davis, Curator of Bird Training…

California King Salmon Rebounds After Drought

Trolling off the California coast, Sarah Bates leans over the side of her boat and pulls out a long, silvery fish prized by anglers and seafood lovers: wild king salmon. Reeling in a fish “feels good every time,” but this year has been surprisingly good, said Bates, a commercial troller based in San Francisco. Bates and other California fishermen are reporting one of the best salmon fishing seasons in years, thanks to heavy rain and snow that ended the state’s historic drought. It’s a sharp reversal for chinook salmon, also known as king salmon, an iconic species that helps sustain many Pacific Coast fishing communities. Commercial salmon catches have surpassed official preseason forecasts by about 50%, said Kandice Morgenstern, a marine scientist with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. Harvests have been particularly strong in Morro Bay, Monterey and San Francisco, but weaker along California’s northern coast. “We’re really surprised to be seeing this many fish being landed so far this season,” Morgenstern said. The salmon rebound comes after three years of extremely low catches that resulted from poor ocean conditions and California’s five-year…

Ontario Mother Left Suicide Notes Indicating Plan to Kill Her 2 Daughters First, Police Say

A mother found unresponsive in the same Ontario home where the bodies of her two daughters were discovered Tuesday afternoon left a pair of suicide notes indicating her plans to kill them and then herself, police said during a news conference Wednesday. The mother, who has not been identified, is in stable condition at a local hospital following her apparent suicide attempt. She remains unresponsive and has not given a statement to investigators, Ontario Police Department Sgt. Bill Russell said. Because she is still receiving treatment and has not talked, the mother has not been arrested or charged at this point, Russell said. “Her ability to talk or comprehend is still undetermined,” he said. The girls’ father, who had seen his 14-year-old and 4-month-old daughters before leaving for work Tuesday morning, discovered their bodies inside the home’s garage when he returned later in the afternoon. The father called police and has been cooperative with investigators despite being distraught. “He’s lost everything at this point,” Russell said. Investigators found a pair of suicide notes indicating the mother’s intention to kill the children and then herself, Russell…

LA County Sheriff’s Deputy Shot In Parking Lot Of Lancaster Station, Suspect Still At Large

LANCASTER (CBSLA) – The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a tweet that two adults were detained Wednesday night in Lancaster after a sheriff’s station was targeted by gunfire, leaving one deputy wounded, but said that the suspect was still at large. The deputy, identified as 21-year-old Angel Reinosa, was shot in the shoulder. According to the sheriff’s department, Reinosa had been stationed in Lancaster for three months as part of the patrol division. “He is doing great, thankfully,” Capt. Todd Weber said. “The wound was minor, and he’s been treated and he’s doing well.” The shooting was reported just before 3 p.m. in the parking lot of the Lancaster Sheriff’s station in the 500 block of Lancaster Blvd., according to sheriff’s officials. Deputy Morgan Arteaga of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau said that other deputies were fired upon, but escaped uninjured. The deputies were in the parking lot behind the station when the shots were fired. The gunfire was directed toward the station’s helipad area, the Los Angeles Times reported. The shots were believed to have been fired from an adjacent apartment building that,…

Villanueva Pushes Back On Judge’s Ruling On Deputy Rehiring, Criticizes Board

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Sheriff Alex Villanueva pushed back Wednesday on a judge’s ruling that said Caren Mandoyan — the deputy who was fired after being accused of stalking and domestic violence only to be rehired by Villanueva — turn over his badge and gun and stop referring to himself as a deputy for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Villanueva also criticized the Los Angeles Board of Supervisors, which has sued the sheriff’s department to block the rehiring stating that the sheriff was “endangering public trust.” And though this dispute centers on one deputy accused of misconduct, both sides maintained that there are larger issues at hand. Villanueva said that this is ultimately a labor issue — one about people being unjustly or unnecessarily fired. “The facts are this is case is about five people — five powerful LA County supervisors who are suing the sheriff because they insist the sheriff cannot hire or fire employees even though I was elected by the voters to run this department,” Villanueva said. The sheriff argued that Mandoyan, who once volunteered on his political campaign, should not…

Young Norco Man Relates Nasty Encounter With Baby Rattlesnake

NORCO (CBSLA)  — Once bitten and twice shy? Bryce Russell, 19, of Norco doesn’t seem to be all that shy when it comes to talking about his too-close encounter with a rattlesnake Sunday. It was a baby snake, but one big enough to carry enough venom to kill. He related the experience to CBS2/KCAL9’s Nicole Comstock and seemed rather matter-of-fact about it. “I mean they’re tucked up, but you can see where they pop out when they strike,” Russell says. He is talking about the snake’s fangs. He showed Comstock the fangs that dug into his foot. Small snake, big surprise. It had to be a bit scary, she asked. “Yeah,” he says, “it was certainly a little uncomfortable. I wasn’t really expecting that.” He had already walked in and out of the house, as had some of his family members. They live right next to hills with hiking trails. But none of the family noticed the rattle snake — about 18 inches long —  coiled up on the corner of their shaded porch on the scorching hot day. While the snake planned a nap,…

Q&A: GM David Forst discusses the state of the Oakland Athletics’ present and future

OAKLAND — September is fast approaching and the Oakland A’s are tied with the Tampa Bay Rays for the second wild card spot. With a rotation patched together with deadline acquisitions and next-man-up standouts outperforming and an offense that delivers night after night despite injuries and prolonged slumps to expensive sluggers, Oakland is looking primed for an exciting postseason push. I spoke with general manager David Forst about how the team came together and a bright 2020 that is hard to ignore despite 2019’s fun. Here’s a breakdown. QUESTION: You’ve taken three-of-four from Houston. You got the first win against the Yankees, you’re about to approach September. How do you feel about the team now? What are the teams strengths and weaknesses as you push toward the postseason? DAVID FORST: This is a team that is a lot like 2018 where, we’re playing about as well as we have all season going into September, which is a great place to be. Obviously taking three out of four from Houston is a really good sign. It not only allows us to pick up a few games…
