7:28 am
works differently to lower blood sugar? imagine, loving your numbers. introducing once-daily invokana®. it's the first of a new kind of prescription medicine that's used along with diet and exercise to lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. invokana® is a once-daily pill that works around the clock to help lower a1c. here's how: the kidneys allow sugar to be absorbed back into the body. invokana® reduces the amount of sugar allowed back in, and sends some sugar out through the process of urination. and while it's not for weight loss, it may help you lose some weight. invokana® can cause important side effects, including dehydration, which may cause some people to have loss of body water and salt. this may also cause you to feel dizzy, faint, lightheaded, or weak especially when you stand up. other side effects may include kidney problems, genital yeast infections, urinary tract infections, changes in urination, high potassium in the blood, or increases in cholesterol.
7:29 am
do not take invokana® if you have severe kidney problems or are on dialysis or if allergic to invokana® or its ingredients. symptoms of allergic reaction may include rash, swelling, difficulty breathing or swallowing. if you experience any of these symptoms, stop taking invokana® and call your doctor right away or go to the nearest hospital. tell your doctor about any medical conditions, medications you are taking, and if you have kidney or liver problems. using invokana® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may increase risk of low blood sugar. it's time. lower your blood sugar with invokana®. imagine loving your numbers. ask your doctor about invokana®.

7:32 am
tonight. and getting ready for some chillier temperatures as we get towards the ends of the week. so we will talk all about that in the seven day forecast coming up. bob kelly is here right now. >> good morning, 7:32, live look at 42, coming in toward philadelphia, the headlight, working past our camera curbside at creek road, starting to see some volume and the fog starting to burn off, as well. but the roads still little damp working your way out of the driveway. good morning to the benny, coming into downtown philly, all four lanes open for your driving pleasure here this morning. but we are pretty much at a steady crawl from mid-span, into downtown at eighth and vine. northeast philly live look at i-95 southbound, heavy from cottman avenue in through the construction zone. down near girard avenue. and here's a live look at the schuylkill expressway, where westbound, approaching belmont, we have dealt with earlier crash, they just moved that out of the way, but leaving the city right now, really heavy, on the schuylkill between montgomery drive and belmont avenue. accident popped up north on the freeway coming in toward

7:34 am
you know? if the adults are calm and reassuring. >> and specially the kids watching the news coverage, they ask about it. why would that man do that to people that he snows. >> let me say this at the onset. mike, we know the younger set, five and under, really, really need to shield them little bit from the media. okay? the older kids are going to find out about it, and probably see it in the homes. so, what we have to do is ask them, again, how much do you know? and go from there. >> some people are troubled, always shielding our kids from making good choices in life, making health shims that are healthy. >> this situation, many years in the making, this just did not happen last week there is man was truly troubled and making sure that our children have awareness every mental health, mental health is their friends. >> you said, you know, five and younger shouldn't be watching the media. even talking about a six year old, that's still pretty young. how do you refer to death, to six year old?
7:35 am
>> children resilient. they do have the filter if you will, to sort out what they can deal with, and when they can't. okay? the biggest issue is language. they don't have the language to describe what's happening to them. that's why epi like music therapy, art therapy getting back into routine with the family, giving reassurance, that helps them process, then they can move forwards. the biggest problem is that the trauma halt their growth. tram an is distraction to a child growing. you know, this 17 year old involved here. >> the 17 year old boy who was stabbed is a sworn, clinic to go life, what -- he's lost his sister, looks like the guy kills her with a sword. >> horrific. >> his parents are dead. >> you know, when he comes out of his situation, what would you say to him? god willing, he comes out of it, okay? what do you have do is see
7:36 am
where he's at. the fact are the fact. he'll be dealing with this for the rest of his live. what you want to do is make sure he can re-establish sense of safety in the world. i mean, we're having difficulty under standing this. i don't know in a we can ever have the true under standing, the ability to cope, move forward and continue to grow. >> real quickly too. this guy that did the killing, he has infant, new wife and infant, that he didn't hurt, but now has left him behind. >> mike, it is to will just take time. and you have to see where the children are at at different developmental stages, and address them then n my practice i have seen it take many years. but they can come to sense of engaging life, in a healthy way, that's possible. it is worth it. >> one more thing, what do you say something to children watching us, i just would rather not talk to my kids about. >> this i don't want to go there. is that a wise decision? >> i think, listen, this is the worlds we live in.
7:37 am
this community, sense of safety, has been shattered. i'm not saying that you should take details of this, be overloading your child, but they have to have a sense of awareness that things in life do happen. that you have to deal with. and just minimal on the facts. >> it is unfortunate a reality. >> it is unfortunate. >> thank you. >> your welcome. >> 7:37. i know who the day season, just all around us but it is giving better than receiving? what do you think? >> we'll tell you how you can help those who are in need the most this holiday season. why buying something, you'll give to somebody in need. >> and he's back, garth brooks going on tour, but first he's making appearance on good day philadelphia. >> gotch ya.

8:05 am
were on. that's how the philly police could see the burglars before they even got to the store. they call for target employees to get the keys, so they let tell n they don't even know how the guys got in at that point. they block the exits. see the police cars blocking all of the steel doors, you probably never noticed before, because you go in, you know, the customer doors, but they got lots of thick steel tan doors all around all four sides for deliveries. and then the cops see the guys go up on the roof. they call in the philly fire department so they can go up on the roof and chase them. well, they chase them back down into the store, then three philly police k9 dog officers called in. they go up and down the aisles. they try to sniff the back storage rooms, the offices, everywhere, and then here's how the two burglars got in. they use a strong steel cutting saw that cuts right through the thick steel door, that cut big 3 feet high hole and 3 feet wide so they can almost walk in there right through the double steel plate dollars doors in the back. then the k9 dogs reaper anbar on go, in two burglars go back
8:06 am
up. >> they were laying on top of these two suspect, and they had back pack with them in ventilation of the roof. there was portable saw in the back pack as well as some walky-talkies. that portable saw most likely is the tool used to break into the steel door in order to commit this burglary. they were determined. they got in. they were determined to hide. they hid for over three hours on this -- on the roof in this air duct, the police did great job finding them and taking them into custody. but the police were tenacious. they searched inside the property, in the storage rooms, everywhere in the property. they new they were in there. they didn't give up. and it paid off. they found them, on the roof, hiding. so it was a great burglary arrest.
