Top 5 Live-March 6

Top 5 Live –WURD Friday March 6
 1. S. Ambassador to South Korea stabbed in knife attack

The U.S. ambassador to South Korea survived a knife attack Thursday morning in the capital, Seoul. Here’s how it unfolded:

Shouting “No to war training,” Kim Ki-jong, 55, allegedly lunged at U.S. Ambassador to South Korea Mark Lippert in Seoul with a 10-inch blade at 7:40 a.m. Thursday morning, local time.

The alleged attacker was part of the group of people who had invited Lippert, and shortly after the ambassador entered the Sejong Center for a breakfast event across from the U.S. Embassy in Seoul, Kim allegedly thrust the knife into the ambassador’s left arm, making an incision measuring longer than 4 inches and about 1 inch deep.

 

2. Michael Brown’s parents announce civil lawsuit in death

Lawyers for the parents of an unarmed, black 18-year-old who was fatally shot by a white police officer in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson said Thursday that they would file a civil lawsuit in Michael Brown’s death.

Attorney Daryl Parks said at a news conference in north St. Louis County that the City of Ferguson and former Officer Darren Wilson would be named in the wrongful death lawsuit, which they plan to file promptly.

The announcement came in response to the findings of a Justice Department investigation that charged the Ferguson police department with unfairly targeting blacks but cleared Wilson in Brown’s death.

 

3. Was fire that killed firefighter Joyce Craig ‘a perfect storm’ of errors?

Three months after Joyce Craig became Philly’s first female firefighter to die on duty, three investigations into her death remain unresolved, because a series of errors occurred that morning, complicating investigators’ probes.

Fire spokesman Clifford Gilliam declined to comment on the Dec. 9 fire, saying he couldn’t talk about ongoing investigations.

But veteran firefighters described it as “a perfect storm of things that went wrong,” including:

An inexperienced ladder crew took 18 minutes to respond.

 

4. Delta flight skids off LaGuardia runway, stops feet from frigid East River

A Delta airplane slid off a runway Thursday at New York’s LaGuardia Airport, its nose busting through a fence before skidding to a halt mere feet from the frigid East River.

Delta Flight 1086 briefly circled New York City due to issues with snow and ice before touching down shortly after 11 a.m., passenger Jared Faellaci told CNN.

Almost as soon as it did, those aboard realized something was wrong — the aircraft’s wheels seemed to have little to no traction, sliding for about 20 seconds.

“You didn’t feel the wheels take,” Faellaci said. Then it was a matter of “where we are going to end up.”

 

5. Police officer shot dead in North Philadelphia

A Philadelphia police officer died after being shot in the head Thursday afternoon in North Philadelphia. Authorities said two suspects were in custody.

Sources identified the officer as Robert Wilson.

The shooting happened inside a GameStop store at 21st Street and Lehigh.

The wounded officer was taken to Temple University Hospital.

One of the suspects was shot in the leg and taken to Einstein Medical Center.

The GameStop is located in a strip mall across the street from the former site of Connie Mack Stadium, which was demolished in 1976.
