10's jacqueline london. jacqueline, big news there today. >> reporter: today new developments regarding one of the biggest headlines of these games, outside of competition. the robbery of ryan lochte, and three of his teammates. today a brazilian judge actually ordered that lochte and jimmy fegan remain in rio while police investigate. no key details, no taxi driver, and no witnesses. rio police say those things are missing from their investigation into the ryan lochte robbery in rio. today a brazilian judge ordered police to seize the passports of lochte and his teammate, as authorities investigate their claims. lochte and three other swimmers say they were robbed at gun point in a taxi early sunday morning as they returned from a party at the french house. >> we got pulled over in our
5:03 pm
taxi, and these guys came out with a badge, a police badge. no lights, no nothing. they pulled us over. they pulled out their guns, and told us to get down on the ground. >> reporter: rio police say the swimmers did not call police and officers only began investigating after media reports surfaced of lochte's mother speaking about the robbery. since then, police say they've found little evidence to support the swimmers' accounts. police went to the athletes village this morning to seize lochte and fegan's passports. lochte's dad said his son came back to the u.s. yesterday. steve lochte said it was an unfortunate experience for him and the other three. the main thing is he's very lucky that he's safe, and that all they got was his cash and wallet. lochte's dad also said the idea that his son's story was
5:04 pm
fabricated is, quote, ridiculous. lochte's attorney said there's no question that that robbery actually happened. and a spokesperson for the u.s. olympic committee said they will continue to cooperate with brazilian authorities. now moving on to competition here in rio de janeiro, brazil. after a disappointing and shocking loss in last night's semis, we know that kerri walsh jennings and april ross will go for bronze in beach volleyball this evening. they face another team from brazil, and likely another tough crowd at cope a pa ban a beach, and the fastest man in the world is just two races away from another gold. usain bolt will go against team usa's justin gat lin. today, women's golf made its return to the olympics for the first time since 1900. and back then, in paris, the u.s. swept all three medals. we'll be watching it closely. for now in rio de janeiro, brazil, i'm jacqueline london. back to you in the studio,

5:06 pm
some of you. so we're going to keep our eye on that as well. in the meantime, we're also talking about the heat. it is not as oppressive today. humidity is not nearly as high as it has been. so look at the feels-like temperature. yesterday at this time we were a little over 100 degrees in philadelphia with our feels-like today, we're at 90. feels like 87 allen ton. 95 in vineland. we'll look at the timing of the storms tonight coming up. the heat wave is really hitting hard for student athletes in delaware. several of them had to go from the practice field to the hospital. nbc 10 delaware bureau reporter tim furlong joins us in claymont, new castle county. it's got to be hot on those fields, tim. >> reporter: yeah. that's right. none of the students were from here. they're not messing around with any of the heat. they're keeping an eye on every single athlete coming out here on the field. children's hospital wants us to know the signs of dehydration

5:08 pm
here. plenty of water, and you should know what symptoms to look for just in case. nausea and trouble keeping liquids down. that's just the start. >> we're looking for a very, very dark colored urine, almost rusty colored urine. and severe muscle swelling, that's the time to come and see us. >> reporter: high schools and colleges pretty much have pros on staff. keep an eye on your grad school kids and youth os, volunteer organizations like that. you have to be extra careful. nobody can keep an eye on your kid better than you can. i called home at lunchtime and told my son, make sure you're sipping water throughout the day in advance of your practice tonight. he says he's doing it. live in claymont, delaware, tim furlong, nbc 10 news. >> good advice, tim. one person died in a fire in philadelphia's fox chase neighborhood this morning. the fire chief tells nbc 10 crews found the body after they put out the flames in a home on

5:11 pm
returns to scranton without doing any jail time at all. deanna durante, nbc 10 news. >> if the governor does appoint another candidate, that person will only be in office for a few months. that's because there's an election for attorney general this november. democrat josh shapiro is running against republican john rafferty. listen to this. three men, three hammers, and a whole lot of damage. coming up at 5:00, the smash-and-grab inside a local mall. plus, up, up, and away. how these planes stole the show at the jersey shore. one day, history was made.
