dog runs away somebody brings them back but a baby, it is a situation we cannot understand. >> she tells us her granddaughter, six months pregnant gave birth and the baby girl was still born. she says when the funeral home contacted the hospital for the infant's remains they found out the remains had been accidentally lost. >> as of monday, i believe they told her maybe it was through the laundry. >> mercy released a statement about the matter saying the hospital extends its sincerest condolences for the family and goes on to say with profound empathy for the family's feelings we are continuing to investigate all aspects of this matter. >> is an apology from the hospital enough?
don't know about her. i can't say about her. an apology about a baby? that you disposed of apparently, no. >> reporter: the hospital also said in that statement they have implemented processes to make sure something like this does not happen again and haven't said what their initial processes are or what the recisions are they made to the processes. i got a chance today to speak on the phone o still born baby girl and says she is trying to cope and wasn't up to speaking with us on camera. >> getting answers in lorain dani carlson, cleveland 19 news. >> denise: so tough for the family. you hope that the hospital will take measures in the future to prevent that. >> chris: we will follow up with that one for sure. >> denise: you may have to grab an umbrella on the way out the door now. >> chris: that's right. a cooldown expected as well.
temps in the first alert weather center. jeff? >> jeff: we had pretty good rains with showers and storms this afternoon. i posted video out of twinsburg sent in by brian duffy earlier as storms were moving through. i have to tell you it is basically in the southern counties and not so much along the lakeshore. other than perhaps brief shower, these showers out over the lake have been dying out. but they could effect the lakeshore. this is rain and storms columbiana and tuscarawas and holmes county. these continue to move east lisbon here in columbiana county. here columbiana, carroll county border. that's a thunderstorm producing downpours and we have them out there. it is mostly cloudy sky and currently in the cleveland area and we will be drying out. if you plan to go to the tribe game and they will start the
noticeably cool air starting to come in tomorrow and comfortable holiday weekend. we are getting into a dry stretch of weather. 80 in cleveland. there's a chance we might have hit our all time warmest august on record. how about that. we are waiting for the official high and low to come in. it will be close. clearly a top 2 for sure. 80 right now 6:75 at 73:00 at cleveland and in general drying things out. forecast details later on in the half hour. chris, denise. >> i cannot remember hitting that record. i can't remember having the air-conditioner on this much in the summer. >> chris: orlo wants to know about crossing guards in
neighborhood. >> denise: paul orlousky got answers as the city started staffing the crosswalks. >> did you do your homework? did you finish it. >> herbert stokes is a sergeant major in the black man's army and a familiar face in euclid near euclid park elementary. >> see you later. see enthuse afternoon? >> yeah. >> all right. thank you. >> herbert took it upon himself to serve as a crossing guard, no pay and just for the neighborhood kids. >> and we need crossinar this is dangerous. >> cars zipping by are over the limit of 20 miles an hour and there could be an explanation for that. flashing lights aren't lit and crossing guards could do that in a zone without a guard. in euclid no guard, no key and no flashing lights for two weeks now. >> my kids cross the street every day. i am scared for them. >> the school closest to them.
story. we will make sure to get the right story and update the cross guards have begun staffing. there are still 81 openings however for the city to fill. moving forward, the man who gunned down a star football player had his day in court today and so did the victim's family. david garrett played high school football in cleveland and named defensive player of the year in kansas state and at home he worked as correction officer and bad blood boiled between his family and barry blevins for a decade in 2014 and words between the two. a flashing of guns and eventually gunshots. blevins later pleaded guilty to manslaughter and he got 14 years but not before david's grandmother confronted blevins. >> did that make you feel like a man, all the violence out here, all the guns?
advocate with the violence from us losing loved ones and, you know, we have to go through the judicial system and just another life gone, next case. >> chris: tensions with two families continue with several court appearances five armed deputies at the courtroom at today's sentencing. >> denise: a disturbing case to tell about you. an 85-year-old akron woman tells police she was raped and badly injured. police arrested 65-year-old william clark charged with two counts of rape behind bars in a summit county jail. the victim treated for injuries including broken pelvic bone and torn lig indianapolis her hip. a scary situation for students and parents at cleveland heights high school this morning. administrators were informed of a possible weapon in the believe. the school safety and security
determined there was no threat and the lockdown lasted about 90 minutes. first alert traffic on cleveland 19 news is sponsored by ford. >> denise: all right. let's take a live look. hazy and congestion on 77 coming out of downtown cleveland. we will try to find out what's going on to cause that. other than that no accidents and nothing to report and can you get the latest by downloading our app and clicking on the protect kids and pets in hot cars took effect today. good samaritans to break into a locked vehicle to save a child or animal will now be immune from prosecution. the one stipulation, the rescuer must contact 911 before they break in and there can't be any other way to rescue the person or pet inside. 600 children died inside hot vehicles since 1990.
and cars. >> chris: yesterday we told you about a group of more than 50 dogs rescued in twinsburg. today we can report there's a line out the door to adopt the cute little canines. 56 manipulateture schnauzers were surrendered in akron by a breeder who could no longer a care for them. 22 schnauzers have been adopted and 5 other dogs and the number is still some need medical attention before being placed in forever homes. >> they are cute. >> cute indeed. they are going fast. let's talk sports indians leading central division by four and a half games. despite first place tribe have the third worst attention in the bigs. >> denise: what's going on, cleveland. just under 20,000 people are going to the games on average. are fans put off by ticket prices or something else?
answers for him tonight. tony? >> yeah, dee. can't be ticket prices we talked about it with curtis danburg. no team makes it more accessible and affordable to fans. this is a hot button issue with tribe fans. they are passionate on both sides and not like clevelanders don't love their tribes. the ratings are the highest and newsstands behind home plate right now and these are a couple of them. you can't offer you more in the end-game experience. what is the deal for indians? it starts with a product. that's good. put it this way. if you come to a tribe game there's a pretty good chance you will watch a celebration. they win twice as many games as they lose on their home turf. when you add all this stuff up it is baffling that it is tough to get people to the ballpark for week night games and that's the issue. i talked to the tribe and got their take.
this year and experienced the ballpark for the first time in a couple of years and they have been overwhelmed and the wow factor has been high. we have seen a lot of fans bounce back and come to multiple games that maybe haven't in the past. and i think that's the contribution to weekend sales being up. past couple week night games we have struggled to drive attendance. >> tony: a show for the indians. i asked at 11:00. they have been in first place for three months. playoffs are a month away. there's never been a better product in the american league than cleveland indians and i brought it up. and fire away on facebook. i put it out there. people have legitimate excuses and maybe it is the man cave experience at this point and high-def tv's. i don't know. i am at a loss to explain this
guys? >> denise: i don't get it, tony. how did cleveland go from 455 consecutive sellouts to 15 years ago to almost dead last in the league. dan deroos digging a little deeper. dan? >> dan: when we look at the numbers it is baffling like tony said. we have seen really bad teams in cleveland and drawing about as much as good teams. 2000 at the end of the run when it seems like indians were going to go tohe time. we were first out of the 14 american leagues when it came to attendance. 3.4 million tickets for the season averaging 42,000 fans per game. that's phenomenal. let's fast forward three years. when we come out of that, they have gutted the team. take a look. we go down to 1.7 million averaging 21,000 a game. fast forward again and we sort of come up. remember we miss world series by
next year we get a bump up in attendance and maybe the tribe are onto something and get 9th to 14. we get to the worst we have ever had. 2014 averaging just under 18,000 a game last in the american league and compare it to this year we are really not that much further off when we were a terrible team in 2014 and averaging 19,618 fans a game. yet we are 13 out of 15 american league teams. tough to figure out. go to the games. chris? >> chris: best advice. thank you, dan. coming up good news for micro brews. why it is a win-win situation
live from cleveland's newscenter driven by don joseph toyota in kent, this is cleveland 19 news. good news for people who live in lakewood or maybe like to visit lakewood park. you can enjoy free wi-fi throughout the installment is almost finished. that's the solstice steps there. in two weeks crews will install wi-fi at madison, coffman parks and look for this on your device and click it. >> all right. >> beer drinkers with a reason to raise the pint glasses. starting today the 12% cap on alcohol and craft beer is being lifted. that's good news for consumers and brewers.
content can be brewed and sold. all you need is appropriate labeling. new rules account for alcohol produced and sold in ohio. >> all right. looks like we have a shower moving into downtown cleveland shortly. and we have scattered showers and storms out there. the red, if you are underneath the red you are getting a downpour in orwell and andover and southeast county. this one moving through parkman, portage county and along -- well, what is that. what is that. >> route 88 there. we have the turnpike here where will you encounter a downpour. akron, west of akron that's moving towards portage lakes and wadsworth and then here. we have perhaps a thundershower moving to wooster and not seeing a ton of cloud-to-ground lightning strikes with these.
county dover new philly and there's the little shower right there moving into downtown cleveland. we have them around. check out the futureview temperatures moving along it stays pretty mild still tonight at least along the lakeshore. humidity staying up through early evening and cooler, though inland around 60 degrees dropping akron-canton and mid-60s then tomorrow it won't be a big warm up here. we will make it up to 75 for the high and say hello to september. it will actually start a little fallish. look at friday's high low 73 and both nights dropping in the 50s. saturday, 76 and sunday 77 labor day and it's looking like a perfect weekend around here just
day and with this north wind kicking in, choppy on the water and we have a rip current risk. high risk of rip currents through tomorrow along the beaches there. a heads up. first pitch tribe game going with 76. late innings about 75. and i don't think we will drop that much in temperature and humidity will be up there through most of the game. mostly cloudy seasonable tonight and 65 for the low. akron-canton risk of storms wil there's the 75 tomorrow with a mix of clouds and sun. 71 at 11:00 a.m. and then a breeze will kick in. it will become breezy north wind 72 at 2:00 or a noticeable change on the way that you will feel. friday even a little cooler and partly cloudy sky windy 73 and notice low temperatures both nights in the 50s: i am
night football games. saturday sunny, 76. sunday 77 and partly cloudy and labor day there, near 80. no alerts next 7 days starting the month of september on a dry note and really warming up again tuesday and wednesday next week. denise? >> all right, jeff. thanks. coming up next on cleveland 19 news at 5:00, new information out that could make you and your dog even closer friends.
donald trump facing new criticism - he appeared to mock a reporter with a disability. "you gotta see this guy. 'uhhhh i don't know what i
said, i don't remember.' he's going like 'i don't remember'." i don't want to sound too much like a chauvinist." "you have to be wealthy in order to be great. i'm sorry to say it." "he's a war hero because he was captured. i like people that weren't captured."
watching his every move. here is how it works. >> they will start at 8:00 to 3:25. they go to lunch, play dodge ball, pe, they get to be part of their child's day through the whole process. >> chris: sounds interesting. some parents aren't fully sold on the idea spending the day at school instead of work. as of now, the option for reverse suspension is optional. the idea was presented by a school board member earlier in the summer has gotten mostly positive results. >> denise: i like it. new research shows dogs respond much more than to your tone of voice. brain scans shows your best friend can understand most of what you are saying. we brought a little bit of this yesterday but michelle miller from cbs evening news is in new york with more on this story. >> sit. good girl. >> reporter: ask any dog owner and they will tell you their dog
>> dance? yeah. >> reporter: but a team of hungarian researchers have taken what's always assumed one step further saying they proved that dogs actually understand a lot more than what we think. >> regulars like sit, stay, come here, when we are walking i always say wait. >> the mere experiment counted on cooperation of 13 dogs, a and golden retrievers trained to lie still 7 minutes during a functional mri scan wearing head phones, dogs listened as trainers combined phrases with different intonations and brain scans revealed like humans dogs process words with the left side of their brain and used the right side to process pitch. alexander horowitz is the author
a division of cbs. >> what did this study teach. >> this study is there's a division in the dog's brain between meaning and sound. so they are hearing the pitch of what we say and also attending at some level to the meaning and especially familiar words. >> reporter: results shows dogs only recognize praise if both words and tone were positive. >> what this study indicates is thaty is positive but doesn't quite match it because the rest of your behavior doesn't jive with having a real happy, rewarding voice. >> reporter: for dog owners like lee cannon is the reward knowing his four-legged friend is one he can talk to about anything at all. >> i wouldn't be surprised if nancy started talking english to me every day. i wouldn't be surprised at all. it just seems natural and normal. >> reporter: critics of the
to be conducted before conclusions are made. a word to the wise to be on the safe side, you talk in that cute little voice with your furry friend like henry here, you better mean it. >> reporter: michelle miller, cbs news, new york. >> jeff: thank you, michelle. >> let's look at doppler max network. we've got this quick downpour approaching lakewood between lakewood and a quick one. overall drier, cooler forecast. this after we broke a record warmth all time august.
president. >> the trip comes as immigration faces close scrutiny. ryan nobles live in washington, d.c. with the visit and big speech tonight, ryan. >> reporter: denise and chris, a pretty remarkable moment today on the campaign trail donald trump traveling to mexico to meet with the president, something you would have never expected given everything trump said about the country and its people. it comes at a time when his signature issue, immigration reform is scrutiny. to a certain extent is on the mind of many voters and not clear if today's mexico will provide any clarity. >> donald trump's hard-line on immigration is one of the big reasons he captured the g.o.p. nomination. >> on day one i will begin swiftly removing criminal illegal immigrants from this country. >> in the last few weeks trump
way from the idea of a deportation force and path of status for undocumented immigrants should be on the table. his campaign argues nothing has changed and promise one thing is for sure. >> don't think about it. it will be built. don't think about it and don't waste your breath. >> he promises the construction of that wall and that mexico will pay for it, trump meets president enrique pe?a. >> we discussed payment of the wall for a later day. >> pe?a invited donald trump and hillary clinton to mexico and is also a critic of the g.o.p. nominee. >> hillary clinton for her part hammered trump for his lack of substance. >> getting countries working together was my job every day as your secretary of state. it is more than a photo op.
reliability. >> for trump it was another day of stealing the campaign spotlight. a strategy playing a big role in the success of the campaign to this point. >> and to a certain extent trump controlled this event in mexico today. they had a moment after the meeting where they met with the press. they originally weren't supposed to take questions and reporters yelled them out and trump answered and that's where the question on the wall came up. we have to the vote going forward and we did not expect to see it to happen. >> all things considered, you have to consider this, a win for trump. what about hillary clinton and her plans to visit mexico? >> well, at this point hillary clinton has no plans to visit mexico. she was invited with trump to meet with mexico's president to a certain extent it seemed
almost kind of a situation to put trump on the defense and i have to a certain extent trump called his bluff. hillary clinton said she is not interested in making a photo op or trying to do something that's an empty gesture, instead she looks back at her time as secretary of state and lengthy amount of time she spent with foreign leaders and going about building those relationships. at this point clinton has no plans to visit mexico. as certainly seems like a productive visit for trump from a campaign optics perspective and perhaps that changes hillary clinton's mind going forward. >> the chess match continues ryan nobles live in washington, d.c. >> denise: religious history will be made in vatican city this weekend. mother theresa is set to be cannonized as a saint. shanice dunning lerped a priest armed with prayers will travel
millions from around the world. >> mother theresa known for her compassion and care for others will become a saint in the catholic church. many will make the trip from around the world to see it including the priest of saint joseph's parish in avon lake. >> at the parish students are writing down prayers for them to read on the way to rome. tomorrow he is leaving to watch as mother theresa becomes a saint on sunday. >> a saint is someone holy. they have had miracles worked in their name. they have been people with outstanding character and faith. mother theresa is a modern day saint. >> on monday pope francis will offer a mass of thanksgiving to honor the anniversary of her death. >> the number of saints we have throughout time it is good to have current role models we can
>> reporter: devout inner faith mother theresa's image is synonymous with service. she worked tirelessly with the poor in india and received a nobel peace prize in 1987. >> a lady from albania that found her way to calcutta, india and did marvelous things for people in need there. >> she told me it is her message of love and kindness that the parish is working to emulate. >> the simplist act of love and kindness c and love and mercy to someone's life. >> he will travel with others joining thousands of people making the spiritual journey. >> it is a beautiful experience to see all those people of faith being together and singing common songs and it is inspirational. >> reporter: according to reports theresa's canonization will make her the third saint theresa joining other saints in the catholic church.

cooler tomorrow 75 north wind 12-24 and here is a look at the planner. 65 at 7:00 a.m. 73 at noon and 74 at 5:00. it is real interesting how that works. we have the warmest august on record in cleveland and then we flip to september and turn cooler. and it looks like it won't stay that way mostly cloudy akron-canton and 77. the overall big picture 75 73 on friday. looking comfortable for friday night football in the 60s and then saturday 76 and sunday 77 and around 80 on labor day. beautiful weekend ahead. like i said eventually another warm up the first week of september. more on that and 7-day forecast coming up in a little bit d.a. niece? >> denise: all right, jeff. thanks. a historic flight more than 50 years in the making.
