6:19 am
just to give you perspective there. you want to make sure you have the current septa schedule. it is not a saturday schedule but current schedule is for this new game plan here and i put that link up on facebook, twitter and we have it on our web site at fox 29. in addition every train station has an suggested alternate. it may be a bus, two bus trips and a trolley to get new to center city. so that is one option if you do not have the car to play with today. mike and alex, back to you. keep us updated. we have breaking news, an et willal flight in new york city has landed safely following a bomb threat. plane was escorted by military jets cross ago cross europe. >> we will get more information on it. 6:19. italian police say they have arrested a homeless man in the death of the american college student. nineteen year-old beau solomon was reported missing last
