Did summer heat cause train derailment?

Hello again friends, it's Paul Cameron in the WBTV newsroom. 

Tonight at 11:00PM—What caused a Norfolk Southern freight train derailment in Cramerton?  Speculation is the summer's high heat may have contributed to damaging the rails.  19 cars wrecked.  Four tankers held propane, but miraculously didn't leak which could have been disastrous.  Our reporter David Spunt says Norfolk Southern hopes to have it cleaned up by later tonight. 

Imagine getting a knock on your motel door to find a man trying to trade a baby for food.  We've got surveillance video from Florida where authorities are asking the public if they know who this person is. 

He doesn't have hands, so he plays soccer.  But he can do pushups.  He can swim.  And he can even go whitewater rafting.  Now 14-year old Elijah Clark has something else to overcome—cancer.  He's got Hodgkin's lymphoma.  Molly Grantham will introduce you to one tough little fighter who has a heart of gold.
