Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron in the WBTV Newsroom. Busy day in local news. What started as a possible Ebola scare at Carolinas Medical Center Main, ended with an infectious disease doctor saying the patient who flew in from Africa had something other than Ebola.
Casey and Sandy Parsons had a rough morning. They were awakened to FBI guns drawn and taken to federal court in Winston-Salem to face more than 70 charges of fraud and other financial crimes. We're talking to their son, Jamie, about the ordeal on this, the one year anniversary of a missing persons report filed on his adopted sister Erica Lynn Parsons. She hasn't been seen for almost two years and there is now a $50,000 reward for information on her whereabouts.
We're also doing a follow up on an extremely dangerous trend called the fire challenge. We first showed you the horrendous video of a young man pouring rubbing alcohol on his body, then lighting it. The stunt didn't go as planned. As you might guess, he became a candle wick and suffered burns. He's okay and is warning other not to try it.
Sharks may be raining from the sky in the movie, "Sharknado II", but in real life, researches say Great White Sharks are hanging around South Carolina's coastline much longer than first thought. Hello beach goers-- be aware.
