chris, this comes at a time when we've had violent encounters on trails... and sidewalks. it was three months ago when a woman in dubuque was attacked and killed while out on her morning walk... so we have seen these situations. yet the message today from the two-time olympic distance runner was do whatever you can to "get away" and, if a fight to stay alive is necessary, in his words "you have to figure out a way to win". todd williams stressed getting away when facing an attacker deep inside the pappajohn business building on the university of iowa campus on friday night... "56:16 if somebody puts their hand on you and you can start yelling a name... " but when there is no other choice... this world- class athlete shows the most effective moves to escape. " 58:56 and the ear... and the next strike... into the eyes. 00:48 and that knee could go into the groin area... 3:05 you have to find a way to win. 4:53, sky she pushes back and kicks... better be a good kick. 8:19... lift...and the hook, wow, that was close."
this isn't just limited to recreational trails or even a specific city. in dubuque, people in eastern iowa were horrified on the news of a 66-year-old woman assaulted and killed by an attacker in september while on an early-morning walk. or a july attack on a woman on a trail inside george wyth state park in waterloo. yet the advice on survival resonates. " 11:23 it's not about fighting back and there's a big emphasis on getting away and creating time. " " 10:45 now i've learned that it's better to run away and get away from a person rather than follow their directions." "13:45 flipping the switch and breaking free and every single second is critical." the university of iowa has reported recent assaults on campus and ui public safety leaders suggest paying attention to surroundings. .. but also use that accessory so many carry... the cell phone... and put the tracking on. "51:55 if you're out and about and your gps is activated, when you hit 9-1-1, what happens is it sends the signal to our office and an icon pops up and our geo map representing you. " we've all scene the fight
williams also told us that to ignore that when crafting a plan for self defense. open palms instead of a closed fist. using any items on the ground -- sticks... dirt in the eyes... anything for a person to buy more time to escape. on my web story on kcrg.com, i've added more of the specific information on self-defense, his group called "run safer"...as well as recent situations where people have been attacked. in a t-v nine followup tonight... searchers in waterloo need volunteers to help look for a missing teenager tomorrow morning. 18-year-old moe sed is a waterloo west student who disappeared on october 22nd. he's originally from burma, and he does have special needs. friends and authorities say he left home on his bicycle and hasn't been seen since. searchers are hoping to get a lot of help tomorrow to comb nature trails and greenbelt areas around waterloo. sed is an avid fisherman, and he
would ride his bicycle on many of the area's trails. " i know we haven't searched a lot of the soft trails so i know we want to get out in that wooded area to see if we can maybe see the bike or find some sign of him being there" the search for moe sed starts at 10 tomorrow morning. volunteers should meet at the embarc office at 220 east fourth street in downtown waterloo where they'll organize and assign search areas. the cedar rapids historic preservation commission wants to save a building damaged in the 2008 flood. the city council is deciding whether to demolish the vacant knutson building next to the mcgrath amphitheatre. the group is asking elected officials to shore up the 128-year-old structure before someone would possibly renovate it. an engineering study found it would cost 400 thousand dollars just to demolish the building. the city council will bring up the issue again on tuesday. tonight a father who's also a soldier is back home

"i'm pretty excited. are you nervous? yeah, a little bit." is a little different. i pledge allegiance.. under the guise of a fundraising meeting.. 07:45:41 oh, i forgot we had a surprise. can you help me out? yeah. cue cards helped austyn introduce a surprise guest. "everyone, please welcome home from active service staff sergeant brent meyer.. my dad. i missed you too.. oh my god i'm crying." tears turned to smiles..
07:52:28 "i was just super surprised. because i missed him, because he's been gone for a year. i missed him so much." as the two pinned down plans.. 07:57:24 "maybe play catch, yup, we've got some nice cold weather. whatever we want! yup." a day austyn says may even be better than christmas..

"that transition it often times is difficult so we're saying here we are come talk with us here we want to help you and we want to assist in any way we can." the march drew the attention of one family whose veteran son committed suicide. they will march with the veterans taking the game ball to kinnick tomorrow. iowa city is getting national recognition for its wrestling. the u-s olympic committee picked the city as wrestling's "olympic
