How a Sheriff's Deputy Saved a Baby


San Bernardino County Sheriff's Deputy Mike Richardson was questioning neighbors in Rancho Cucamonga about a shooting when he came across baby Payge in a filthy trailer. At the time, she was badly malnourished and emaciated. Doctors say he got to her just in time. Now, nearly three years later, he says saving her life was the joy of his career. Inside Edition Digital's Stephanie Officer has the details.

Dashcam video captures the moment Kiowa County Sheriff's Deputy Jeremy Rodriguez struck 35-year-old Lionel Womack with his patrol truck. Womack, a former police detective from Kansas City, alleges in an excessive-force lawsuit that he sustained serious injuries when Rodriguez "intentionally" drove over him during the August 15 encounter, after Womack fled a traffic stop.
Quick thinking from Sheriff's deputies as they rush to save a woman from a burning car on the side of an Ohio highway. Investigators say a 60-year-old woman's foot got stuck on the accelerator after she suffered a diabetic emergency. As her tires spun in the brush on the side of the road, they set the grass on fire, which spread to the car. Pennsylvania firefighters saved a dog from a burning barn, but the pup was too scared to move, so the firefighter scoops it up to safety.
A restaurant manager is being hailed as a hero for spotting what she said were signs of child abuse. Flaviane Carvalho says a family ordered food at the Mrs. Potato in Orlando, Florida but did not have a meal for the 11-year-old customer. She noticed a bruise on the boy and created a sign that said "Do you need help?" and held it up from an angle that his parents could not see. When the boy nodded yes, Carvalho called 9-1-1 and the parents were later arrested. Inside Edition Digital has more.
Authorities say SWAT team members finished an unsuccessful search for a suspect when 23-year-old Casey Goodson drove by waving a gun. An attorney for Goodson's family disputes that. Although Goodson was not the suspect they were looking for, a sheriff's deputy fatally shot Goodson outside his home following a "verbal exchange." Late today, the Columbus police department turned the investigation over to state officials.
