Big brother, 10, helps to deliver newborn baby brother at home

Ashly Moreau went into labor at 34 weeks and the baby was breech. Jayden tried to get help from his grandmother who lives next door. She was able to call police, but couldn’t assist in the delivery.

So Jayden did what he needed to, asking his mother what to do. He pulled the baby into the world, but he wasn’t breathing. He found a nasal aspirator to clean the baby’s nose and he started breathing, KPLC reported.

First responders arrived shortly after and took the new baby and Moreau to the hospital.

Doctors credit Jayden for saving not only his brother’s life but also that of his mother. Doctors told KPLC that if Jayden wasn’t there, his mother would have died from loss of blood during the delivery.

Tennessee congressman to file articles of impeachment

A Tennessee congressman announced Thursday that he plans to introduce articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, CBS News reported.

"In response to the horrific events in Charlottesville, I believe the President should be impeached and removed from office," Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen said in a statement released by his office. "Instead of unequivocally condemning hateful actions by neo-Nazis, white nationalists and Klansmen following a national tragedy, the President said 'there were very fine people on both sides.' There are no good Nazis. There are no good Klansmen."

>> Texas congressman: ‘Our democracy is at risk’

Cohen cited potential obstruction of justice and violations of the Constitution's Foreign Emoluments Clause as the reasons for impeachment while also addressing his own strong moral opposition to the president's words and actions relating to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend.

The congressman's call to remove Trump from office comes after the president blamed the Charlottesville disruption on “both sides” -- both the white supremacists leading the "Unite the Right" rally, and their counter-protesters, who Trump labeled the "alt-left."

"Well, I do think there's blame," Trump said in a news conference from Trump Tower in New York on Tuesday. "Yes, I think there is blame on both sides. You look at both sides. I think there is blame on both sides. And I have no doubt about it. And you don't have doubt about it either.”

Cohen also serves as a Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice. 

"As a Jew and as an American and as a representative of an African American district, I am revolted by the fact that the President of the United States couldn't stand up and unequivocally condemn Nazis who want to kill Jews and whose predecessors murdered 6 million Jews during the Holocaust, and could not unequivocally condemn Klansmen whose organization is dedicated to terrorizing African Americans," according to Cohen's statement.

"You can't put into words how much that support means,” Rosebud Primary first grade teacher Kendra Lorenz said.

Lorenz said she first connected with the donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, through an online organization called Donors Choose. Last school year, the donor gave Lorenz’s class various supplies. She was surprised when the woman contacted her about helping out the entire schoo, KWTX reported.

"This summer, she actually contacted me and said, ‘Hey, what are y'all needing for school supplies?’ And so I passed along our supply list to her, and she said I'll take care of all of it,” Lorenz said.

Lorenz said the donations are especially important for her school district.

"Our families struggle, that's the nature of the beast around here, and that's OK, we work together, we get what we need done,” Lorenz said.

Secret Service investigating Missouri lawmaker’s post

The Secret Service is investigating comments made on social media by a Missouri state senator who reportedly said she hoped President Donald Trump would be assassinated, CNN reported.

>> Read more trending news

Democratic State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal's comment on personal Facebook page -- “I hope Trump is assassinated -- was deleted, but it has triggered a call for her resignation by fellow legislators.

"The St. Louis Field Office of the Secret Service is looking into the comments," Secret Service spokeswoman Cathy Milhoan said in a statement to CNN. "The Secret Service investigates all threats against the President, Vice President, and other protectees, whether they be direct, implied or comments in passing.

Chappelle-Nadal has apologized for the post, telling KMOV that the comment arose from her frustration from the current political climate in the United States, particularly in the wake of the unrest last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia. On Saturday, a car drove through a crowd of counter-protesters, killing one woman and injuring several other people. Trump’s initial response was criticized after he said there was blame “on many sides” for the violence.

Chappelle-Nadal backed off her initial Facebook post Thursday.

“No, I don't want to see anyone assassinated, but he should not be president, he should be impeached,” she told KMOV. “Someone wrote a statement on my Facebook and I responded with something that shouldn't have been put up there."

Missouri lawmakers condemned the remark.

Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, a fellow Democrat, said in a statement: "I condemn it. It's outrageous. And she should resign."

Stephen Webber, chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party, called Chappelle-Nadal’s comments “indefensible.”

“All sides need to agree that there is no room for suggestions of political violence in America -- and the Missouri Democratic Party will absolutely not tolerate calls for the assassination of the President,” Webber said. “I believe she should resign."

Missouri Republican Gov. Eric Greitens also demanded she resign in a statement, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

"We can have differences in our country, but no one should encourage political violence. The senator should resign,” Greitens said.

U.S. Rep. William Lacy Clay told the Post-Dispatch that “calling for the assassination of the President is a federal crime. … (She is) an embarrassment to our state. She should resign immediately.”

Chappelle-Nadal said she would not step down.

“No. Absolutely not. I told people if there are legislators cheating on their wives and smoking marijuana in their offices and they’re not being asked to resign, I am not going to resign for a mistake I made and owned up to,” she told Fox2Now of St, Louis.

She repeated 

“I am not resigning,” she tweeted. “When POC are respected by this WH & they are willing to do real work, I'll sit down with them. People are traumatized!”

An Oregon man doesn’t want what happened to him to happen to who will watch next week’s solar eclipse.

Later that evening, Tomososki and his friend were having vision problems and both are still having issues 55 years later.

A doctor told Tomososki that he burned his retina during the eclipse in 1962, KGW reported.

Now the blurry vision in his right eye won’t go away.

Will what happened 55 years ago keep Tomososki from watching Monday’s eclipse? He said no, but he’ll won’t be looking at the sky as it happens. Instead he’ll just watch it get dark outside, KGW reported.
