UNC Charlotte Data Compromised; Local Medical Emergency Leads To Call For Changes

Good morning to you on this Thursday from WBTV News This Morning...John Carter reporting this morning.

A lot going on today to tell you about...including the investigation at UNC Charlotte into an online security breach.  We'll have details on what happened.

Cam Man Ron Lee is live in north Charlotte where a man was rushed to the hospital after being repeatedly stabbed at a hotel.

Kristen Hampton has a very interesting, all-new story...an elementary school principal drops in the middle of a school day. His school nurse and other office staff helped keep him conscious and called paramedics quickly. He's now pitching an idea to the school board to provide funding for AED's in all schools. Currently, they're only in middle and high schools.

Plus...a grandmother at odds with a local school system over her granddaughter's lunchbox and the food she was carrying.

And you've got to see the story about a crackdown on...hairdryers!

We've got some great sports highlights...the UNC Tar Heels taking on Miami...and Charlotte Bobcats action.

Grab your umbrella...we've got rain in the forecast!

All that and so much more...be sure to join us this morning from 4:30 to 7 AM!
