forecast. in the mid 60's tomorrow with increasing clouds. a better chance of rain tomorrow night and tuesday. then we are affected by multiple storms until mid week. temperatures bump up to 80 degrees on wednesday. 82 by thursday. we could cool back down as we head into next weekend. >> celebrations quickly turned tragic in st. louis. one person was killed and 15 others injuried after a tent collapsed at a sports bar. cardinals baseball fans celebrated a victory over the milwaukee brewers. we have more. >> 50-mile-an-hour winds barreled into a tent.

7:13 am
nbc news. >> major athletes are not the only ones injured during sports. how families can make sports safer. >> how you can navigate end of life care for you and yourar
7:14 am
7:15 am
>> 7:15. 42 degrees on tv hill. in this week's "medical alert" one-third of america's schirn suffer injuries while playing team sports. a majority of parents didn't realize kids may need two to three months to recover from that injury. coaches said they felt pressured to play an injuried child, especially if they were star of the team. well, april is national youth
7:16 am
sports safety month. now more on this. good morning. thanks for coming in. >> thanks for having me. >> let's talk about this. 3.5 million kids will receive medical treatment this year? >> yes, that's correct. approximately 30 million kids are involved until juth sports. as that number is growing throughout the years, more and more kids are suceptible to injuries. many of these injuries can be prevented. especially prior to the kids participating. >> and there are many sports related injuries? >> yeah, that's true. many messengersy room visits whether -- many emergency room visits are from these injuries. >> is that because coaches are not trained in how to have safe practices? >> i think there are many factors.
7:17 am
i think there are ways to prevent these injuries in practice and competition. i think the coaches and trainers have a key role in assessing and preventing these injuries. i thr -- think there are many reasons these injuries occur. >> what are some ways people can prevent these injuries from occurring? >> i think having a good exercise regimine and good conditioning program does help. making sure many of these kids are well hydrated during practice and competition as well . also having a good warm-up and cool-down program prior to and after practice is part of preventing injuries. >> helmet, eye gear, mouth gear. are those things important? >> they are very important. maintaining equipment and proper equipment is critical in preventing many of these injuries. having routine check-ups for
7:18 am
proper helmets. they need appropriate footwear. this all reduces the risk of having injuries occur. >> the hardest thing for parents is a kid gets hurt in the game, they shrug it off. but the kids want to play. so they don't always tell the truth about how they are feeling. how does a parent know when something is -- demands medical treatment? >> we do want to encourage kids to speak up when they are in pain. so a child who has an injury that may be in some sort of pain that's not improving over a short course is going to seek medical attention whether it be through a coach, a teacher, or a nurse at school, and just get the attention of our adult
7:19 am
population to listen to these kids is an important aspect. >> the kid gets hit. don't mess around with that. >> yeah, concussions are a key role in terms of preventing many of these injuries. if a kid does get hurt, you want to have a good evaluation by a physician. i think it is very critical to prevent cugs from occurring. the long-term effects are quite critical if a concussion gets undiagnosed. >> thank you, doctor. >> don't go away. when we come back, products for freshening up your skin this spring. first a look at events going on around town this weekend.
7:20 am
7:21 am
7:22 am
>> it is a new season and you were telling us there are great products. >> i would like to go through spring cleaning ideas for our spring cream. first lighten that moisturizer. with the higher humidity, we don't need the heavy winter time
7:23 am
moisturizer. look for a moisturizer that contains glycerine. we like these by purell. they contain an ingredient which strengthens the skin barrier. they go on feeling a lot more light in the spring time. >> the moisturizer we are looking for, will it have glycerine in it? >> this one has both products. i like the combination of these ingredients. glycerine is a good ingredient. >> and we don't want? >> petrolotam. it can fool greasy and sticky. the skin on our heels and feet can get very fry -- dry.
7:24 am
look for a moisturizer that contains urea. a good product is purell foot cream. it can be applied ove night with a pair of cotton socks. in two days you will see a noticeable improvement. >> the reality is, other people are looking at your feet. even if you are not paying atension, other people are. >> that's right. pay attention to that area. the other area that can get dried out during the winter time is the face. sometimes what happens is the dried up skin cells clog into the pores. that can lead to blemishes. an ingredient i like to recommend is salicilic acid. it will unclog black heads and white heads and just help to give an even glow to the skin. so this is a pour unclogging --
7:25 am
poe -- pore unclogging cleanser. we all love these pore strips. one pore strip a week removes one week of oil and build-up from our foreheads. >> love it. we also know a little glow to our skin is nice. we want to wash away this white pastey look from the winter. >> one question patients always ask, is it ok to go outside and get a little bit of a tan, and the answer is always no. we know the risks of skin cancer associated with sun and tanning beds. 1-5 americans will now develop skin cancer. what we recommend are the sunless tanners which are great. the jergens natural glow line is to be used as a daily
7:26 am
moisturizer. it has s.p. f. the face and the body. and over time it will provide a nice natural glow to the skin. >> i love tan in a bottle. it is awesome. >> this is a new product called a combination skin balancing cleanser. this strips away the moisture but not the natural oil. >> so it won't dry faces out? >> exactly. >> all of these products were under a certain amount, too. >> right, all of these are over the counter at the drug store and all very effective. >> thank you. good information. >> the time is 7:26. we have more news coming up. please stwuss.

7:30 am
we'll talk about one of the groups this morning. and that's women voters. this issue comes up time and time again, how to win the women's vote and whether the republicans have turned the clock back on some of the issues that women care about. the president is revising this issue. hillary rosen, the person who made the comment about mitt romney's wife not working a day in her life will be on the program. will he make a case to voters that he has got big solutions to big problems? i think there is a huge appetite for that in the country now at a time when americans are disgusted with how poorly washington works. >> how does he deal with the idea that he needs to be of the people, sort of not this rich guy that's got it all going on. >> this question of who connects better, politicians struggle over this.
7:31 am
i think both candidates will find that difficult in some ways. the president, you know, has much more cultural relevance. he appears to be a cule cooler guy, appearing on late night shows and all the rest. mitt romney is seen as more stiff and wooden. i think he will embrace some of that and say, look, i'm not mr. excitement. what i am is the turn-around guy on the economy. and that's what the country needs right now. >> at last night's correspondents dinner, you were there, what was your impression? i don't think it was as funny in years past. it seemed like the president took a middle of the road approach. what was your impression? >> i thought it was pretty funny. the people i talked to said they thought there were more misses than hits. i thought the president was funny. i thought ajimmy kimmel was funny. a couple jokes were a little on the edge. they always are. the president had afun with mitt romney. it wasn't too hard edge. these things are great for the
7:32 am
president because they take a shot at the press and they make fun of themselves. when you can laugh at yourself it is pretty endearing. so i think presidents come out well in these things. >> don't forget, you can watch "meet the press" here this morning at 10:00 on wbal-tv 11 news following 11 news ab jimmy kimmel took aim at politicians. >> everything wrong with america
