Broderick grabbed a branch and climbed up a tree to avoid the alligator. Broderick's parents called 911 because the alligator waited at the base of the tree hissing at her for nearly 30 minutes.

Police shot and killed the 10-foot gator and Broderick was able to safely come down from the tree.

Fountain Hills, AZ- A woman shot and killed her son because he wanted to put her in an assisted living facility.


92-year-old Anna Mae Blessing had been living with her 72-year-old son, Thomas Blessing, and his girlfriend for about six months. Police say Anna Mae had gotten into a dispute with her son about her living arrangements.

According to court documents, Anna Mae believed her life was being taken as a result of her son and his girlfriend trying to move her to assisted living.
