right now on "nbc10 news today," fearing for their lives. four youth football coaches take cover as a gunman opens fire following a scrimmage. we're hearing from those injured coaches about surviving the shooting. on the move, the controversial frank rizzo statue will be relocated, but the debate continues about what it means for the legacy of the former philadelphia mayor. close to the heart, here's a live look at citizens bank park. you can see it's all lit up. that's because thousands are getting ready to raise millions of dollars to help in the fight against our country's number one killer. good morning. this is "nbc10 news today." i'm rosemary connors. it's 6:00 on this saturday. you can see it's dark behind me right now. yeah, it's going to start to
6:01 am
lighten up this time tomorrow because don't forget we fall back. meteorologist krystal klei is tracking our first alert neighborhood forecast. and as we start this daylight saving weekend, krystal, it's going to be chilly out there. >> that's exactly right. actually, as we get into your next workweek we're really going to start feeling like that chilly fall november weather you'd expect. it's been mild the last couple of days. not quite so this morning. we're at 47 in philadelphia, little chilly out there. but really it's chilly in areas like pottstown and reading where we're now in the mid and upper 30s. allentown at 43. and millville at 48 degrees. you certainly want to grab a jacket as you head out the door. today, if you have plans in the afternoon hours, you may still need that jacket because it is not going to be into those 70s like we have been seeing. look at our radar and satellite. we've got some clouds in place this morning. i do believe we'll see increasing clouds as we get into the afternoon hours. and that's ahead of some chance of rain that will start to pick up by tonight. that chance of rain will come with a shift in winds, but for today those winds are kind of
6:02 am
roping in from the north and northeast. what does that mean for us? well, they're not terribly strong, about 5 to 15 miles per hour. in the afternoon maybe a little breezy, gusts up to 25. but the most important part of this is when you've got a north or northeast wind, you're pulling in air from the north and northeast. and that's colder than us. so today those temperatures in the afternoon they stay a little cooler. we're going to talk about what to expect for the rest of your saturday and the changes for your sunday, more changes monday and the rest of your workweek coming up. in just under two hours from now thousands of people will come together here at citizens bank park in an effort to promote heart healthy living. the annual fundraiser is the signature event of the american heart association, which raises tens of millions of dollars across the country with its heart walks. nbc10's randy gyllenhaal is live at the bank with a preview of philadelphia's heart walk. randy. >> reporter: good morning, rosemary. it's going to be a chilly morning so if you're coming down here to south philly, bring a jacket. you might get a lot of exercise and even break a sweat.

they're doing a three-mile walk beginning here at citizens bank park. you can see they're still setting up the balloons this morning. the walk will take them past wells fargo into the fdr park and then back here to the bank. all an effort to promote physical activity and heart healthy living. this is the american heart association's biggest number one fundraiser. and this year they're hoping to raise $2.5 million here in philadelphia. heart disease and stroke are the number one and number five killers of americans. one of the people walking today we got a chance to meet 35-year-old amy cavalier, who learned that heart disease can strike at any time to anybody with no warning. the busy mother of three woke up one morning with pain in her arm and chest and she couldn't breathe. >> having known the signs of heart attack but never in a million years thought it would be me. i'm young, i'm in shape, i don't smoke. i was down receiving cpr, chest compressions and aed for about 45 minutes.
6:04 am
>> reporter: amy's coronary artery had attorntorn in half. she was in a medically induced coma for about a week. she'll be walking here with her family. and she wants people to know three things, one, the signs of a heart attack, two, learning cpr. and of course also how to use a defibrillator. the walk kicks off about 8:00 this morning. nbc10's jackie london will be the emcee. live in south philly, randy gyllenhaal, nbc10 news. >> thanks, randy. new this morning, a woman is safe after firefighters in camden county rescued her from her burning house. it happened right here on crestmont terrace in collinswood. flames started spreading just before mid nigh. the woman was trapped on the second floor of her home. firefighters had to use their ladder to reach her. she did make it out okay with only minor injuries. crews eventually extinguished the flames. investigators are now looking for the cause of this fire. this morning, we are hearing from four youth football coaches who describe how they hit the ground and ducked for cover beneath cars to avoid gunfire in
6:05 am
camden. as you can see two of them were injured. the four coaches were putting away equipment at a house near ninth street and chelton avenue in camden following a scrimmage last week. they tell us when they walked out of the house, an unknown gunman fired several shots at them. two of the coaches, calvin johns and zack worthy couldn't get away fast enough. johns shot in the arm, worthy in the legs. >> i turn around and he's laying on the street face first. i think he was more shocked than anything. laying there blood coming out of his leg or whatever. he said i'm hit, coach, i'm hit. >> all i heard was, pop, pop, next thing i know i was on the ground. i heard coach say i've been hit, i've been hit. >> just five days later nearly a block away camden county police officer patrick ohenlen was shot while fighting off an armed teenager. so far no arrests in either case. let's head now to delaware county where police are searching for a gunman who shot a 73-year-old woman.
6:06 am
skyforce 10 was over the scene last night. crews rushed the woman to the hospital. she is expected to survive. we're working to get more details about what led up to this shooting. this weekend several bucks county communities are on alert as police investigate three separate child lurings. right now police are trying to fwig yur out if two cases in bristol township and one in yeardley are connected. police tell us it was a silver car but they have not released anymore details. brownies possibly laced with a dangerous substance may be the reason why some radnor high school students went from a pep rally to the er. police called a news conference last night to warn other parents. medics had to rush six students who got sick thursday night to the hospital for treatment. police say the brownies may have been laced, but they don't know yet what was in it. investigators tell us they found out about the incident from a parent of one of the students affected. staying in radnor internship, delaware county,
6:07 am
these three women who flipped over in a car while being chased by police are under arrest on shoplifting and other charges. investigators tell us the suspects stole several thousands dollars worth of bed sheets from a department store yesterday. they then tried to get away from an officer at a traffic stop but the women ended up hitting another car which caused theirs to flip. according to police one of the suspects then got out and tried to carjack a mother who had her child inside. that's when officers caught up to the trio. this is a live look -- or rather this is a look at the frank rizzo statue near philadelphia city hall. and it may be one of the last times you see it. it will be gone in just a few months. the city has decided to move the controversial landmark. yesterday city officials announced their decision to remove the ten-foot tall statue. it followed weeks of debate initially sparked by riots in charlottesville, virginia, during a white nationalist rally over the removal of a confederate statue. critics call frank rizzo a racist mayor and police commissioner when he was in
6:08 am
office from the late '60s to 1980s. his supporters say he did not single anyone out. >> i think it's an insult to everybody, living and dead, that contributed to the statue. >> the relocation of the statue doesn't change anything about history. it doesn't erase it. it doesn't change anybody's legacy. >> city officials have not yet determined a new location for the rizzo statue. they say it could take six months to move it. 6:08 right now on this saturday. coming up, 20/20 vision, what msnbc's chris matthews is revealing about a possible ptd shl run for former vice president joe biden. and how netflix is handling allegations against the actor. christie: this is governor christie.

6:20 am
day. 59 for voorhees, same deal in delaware. mostly cloudy especially into the afternoon. this is our weekend timeline. this morning some sun to clouds, cooler as we go into the afternoon, like i just showed you. as we go into tonight some spotty showers start to move in. those showers linger through at least the first half of sunday. they could still be isolated sunday afternoon and evening, but more so you're going to notice the cloudy and mild conditions as temperatures start to pick back up. so from cool and cloudy to showers, showers to cloudy and mild, there will be a change in those temperatures this weekend. here's a look at the hour by hour model. there we are some clouds this morning, there we are by your afternoon. we have more cloud coverage in place but dry throughout the daytime hours. if you have plans outside, birthday party, anything like that, good to go. as we get into the evening now we have a few spotty showers rolling across the area. notice they kind of continue to move through especially overnight, which is good. most of us will be asleep at home, no issue there. but some lingering showers are possible into your morning hours sunday, even in the afternoon a sprinkle here or there is
6:21 am
possible. but i think for the most part we will be dry and then things really do dry out into sunday evening. that's going to be short lived though because a cold front moves in monday. that's going to bring us more rain on monday. let's talk about the eagles game though. 1:00 kickoff tomorrow this is going to look much better than last week's game. 64 degrees at 1:00 p.m., goes to about 66 throughout halftime and end of the game. just a light shower possible in this forecast. don't forget that tonight you get to fall back those clocks as daylight saving time begins. 7:34 this morning will be our sunrise. tomorrow's sunrise will be at 6:35, little brighter, earlier, maybe you have the blackout curtains if you need them. sunset today at 5:55. tomorrow, this is what i don't like, 4:54 will be our sunset for tomorrow. and let's wrap up with your ten-day on 10. warmup i was talking about for sunday 67 continues into monday at 73. but once the cold front moves through it breaks the temperature down to 58 degrees. we are drier into the rest of next week and look at that low 50s wednesday, thursday, that's
