Billy Graham's health - | WBTV Charlotte

Billy Graham's health

Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron chilling out in the WBTV Newsroom.

And a chilly night it's turning out to be. Ashley Batey says after the sunshine and mid-60's, we get down into the 20's tonight. So what's the rest of the week look like? Ashley's First Alert forecast at 11:00.

We're also following the health of Billy Graham. His son, Franklin, is asking for prayers as his father is weak following a stay in the hospital for a respiratory infection. The 95 year old elder Graham is home at Montreat with what we're told are good vital signs.

We still don't know how it happened, but a woman got trapped under a car in the parking lot of a CVS Pharmacy on Mallard Creek Church Road. It took firefighters 15 minutes to get the car off. She is in the hospital tonight.

President Obama creates a stir by shaking hands with Fidel Castro's brother, Raul, during a memorial service for Nelson Mandela. Human rights activists are criticizing the president for giving the Cuban leader any credence.

How are the Mom-n-Pop Christmas Tree lots doing this year? Brigida Mack says it seems like every big box and grocery store has trees for sale, so, we wondered if the little guys were feeling the pinch?

Please join Molly Grantham, Ashley Batey and me for WBTV News at 11:00 in just a few minutes.
