that's bellmawr monmouth county, not bellmawr camden county, the one on the beach, then bellmawr mayor said we wish we did this years ago, we had our best summer season last year business-wise because people new they wouldn't have smoke on their faces in the beach t drew bigger crowds, plus he said it saved money. they didn't have to have the crews combing the beach picking up everyone's dis g cigarette butts. >> and much better not have those butts all over the sand and beach. thank up, sir. >> warning for some locals to not drink the water. tests in montgomery and bucks county reveal potentially dangerous results. >> more than 150 wells are contaminated with chemical linked to cancer, three neighborhoods around the willow grove base, known about this contamination for two years, and have been working to fix t just last week the epa put out new tougher standards, and new wells in the warminster area, flunked, and open house for concerned resident. >> we've been consuming that

days before or days after, depending on who you ask, everybody was predicting this town was headed for bankruptcy. facing a crisis, finally facing each other, finally talking and finally came to some kind of deal to be voted on today before bankruptcy. 23 changes or amendments as they're called in political bills, the governor famously once said if one word was changed in the original atlantic city state take over, he was going to veto it. guess what? last night on his ask the governor call-in show he seemed to change a bit himself on that promise veto. >> whatever is across my desk ill like at it quickly, no reason to delay, as long as i have something that i think will ultimately not impact the taxpayers in the state of new jersey, and help save atlantic city, then, you know, i'm do it. >> reporter: well, this rescue plan doesn't mean that they're out of the woods once it is approved and if the governor signs it, because it
essentially just gives atlantic city five month to come up with another plan to essentially cut its budget in half over the next five years. so, you got to wonder how possibly can a town get by on half the money that is barely getting by on now after all of the cut it's already made. like are you going to have half the police department, half a fire department, they've got to buy out a lot of police officers with, like, say 20 years of experience or more. to do that they'll get a big state bridge loan. no bridgegate loan jokes here, but they'll be buying out a lot of long time employees, so all of the experience goes off the street. and you got to hope that the city and the streets stay safe with so fewer cops on the street. but you can't wait to see how this is going to happen. but don't be surprised if this is just the start of the troubles, even though this might and happy day for people, now, just might put off the inevitable. >> have to pay a bridge loan down the road, then these problems just playing them for
years to come. so not looking too good. >> bankruptcy may eventually come, too. >> all right, steve, thank you. >> let's stay in new jersey, lawmakers close to snuffing out smoking on public beaches for good. the senate and assembly expected to vote today on bill that restrict smoking on public beaches and ban it at parks. lets municipalities create designated smoking areas on beaches, but that rule will not apply to parks. a top new jersey lawmaker is push to go prevent new jersey transit engineers from operating trains if their drivers licenses are revoke or suspended due to drunk driving violations. this after investigations found that nj transit engineer thomas was controlling commuter trains despite losing his license to drive a car for ten years for repeated drunk driving offenses. >> all right, speaking of driving, dave kinchen covering a sad story for us this morning. >> yes, very sad story.
surveillance cameras, police tell us the child was riding his bike on oak wood avenue when he smashed into passing car, the little boy motionless, as the driver backs away rapidly, and frantically down an alleyway. neighbors who heard the crash ran over to the boys aid, until medics arrived. one witness says that the boy told her, he was only 6 years old. >> the child coming down the alley on his bike. >> this guy, flying down the street, like i would say at least 20 miles over the speed limit. and i heard him slam on his brakes, i looked, looking out the window, and he just flew right past the kid we saw him put the car in reverse extremely fallings, backed it down the alley. so then anybody could see the license plate, he took off backward to the next street over. >> i hope they catch him. loses his license so he can't drive. person like that doesn't belong behind the wheel.
>> say the child was transport today chop, and it is in stable condition, investigators also say they seized the gold camry involved in the crash, but the driver remains at large, give norristown police a call, if you have any information that can give them some leads on this terrible case. back to you, chris, lauren? >> very terrible. thank you. >> another hit-and-run to tell but, this is northeast philadelphia the driver faces charges of homicide by vehicle and involuntary manslaughter. police say 35 year old john cook hit and killed molina early tuesday morning, as he waited for bus, investigators say cook got out of his car, looked at molina, then ran away. did he turn himself into police several hours later giant multi state gambling ring, officials seizing 2 million dollars in cash, now 46 people are behind bars, authorities say, this man, robert elvis, from north jersey, ran the operation with the help of an office in costa rica where people placed bet,
starts june the 1, but we already had a hurricane. if you recall in january, in the aids ores, there was hurricane alex. so if he we get a named storm this week, and we corks it would be named bonnie. that's the next name on the list. this is an area near the bahamas we're watching that has pretty decent chance of tropical development. and if that happens, then we have to watch the eastern seaboard of the united states to see if it affect us. so, just so you're aware. but, meantime, while that's all happening in the caribbean, we will be looking at very hot temperatures, things warming up very nicely, this week, you wanted warmer temperatures, you're going to get them. even if you don't get to 90 degrees, by tomorrow it will feel like t we will add a lot of humidity. down the shore different store which these temperatures in the 70s, right along the beach. you will have to keep that in mind, as well, but that's early in the season, that's what a sea breeze does, it cools thinks off. and the ocean water temperatures only in the upper 50's, so, with that breeze,
