Teen Asks for Forgiveness From Family of Woman He Killed
A teenager admitted he pushed a log off a cliff that killed a mother as she stood below. Now he's asking for forgiveness from her family. Victoria Schafer was a professional photographer who was taking pictures of high school seniors in Ohio State Park on Labor Day 2019. As she and the students were walking back to the parking lot, a 70-pound log came crashing down on top of the photographer, crushing her. Witnesses tried to help, but the mother of four was pronounced dead at the scene.
Hear from the lawyer and family of Walter Wallace Jr., the Black man killed by police in Philadelphia on Monday. Vice President Mike Pence assailed Joe Biden and argued for four more years of President Trump.

Joe Biden has said he is "honoured and humbled" after winning the US Presidential election. He crossed the threshold of 270 Electoral College votes needed by winning the states of Pennsylvania and Nevada.
In a statement the President-Elect said: "In the face of unprecedented obstacles, a record number of Americans voted. Proving once again, that democracy beats deep in the heart of America. It's time for America to unite. And to heal."
The election has seen the highest turnout since 1900. Mr Biden has won more than 73 million votes, the most ever recorded for a US presidential candidate.
The result denies Donald Trump a second term after a divisive presidency defined by the coronavirus pandemic, bitter culture wars and social unrest.
