Cool Down St. Louis kicks off summer program

Wednesday, 19 June 2013 06:02 Published in Local News

   Local leaders have put out the call to those in need and to those who can help. Cool Down St. Louis and Ameren kicked off their annual summer program to keep elderly and disabled St. Louisans safe from the deadly heat.

   Ameren donated the first 240 air conditioners with the hope that more units will be donated and more money raised to assist the most vulnerable members of the community.

   St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay says donations are critical to this program's success.  "It is important to note that eventually, all the funds will be exhausted this year," Slay said.  "And remind you that 100 percent of proceeds, 100 percent of private donations go directly to helping someone in need. There are no administrative costs that come out of our donations."  

   For more information about donating an air conditioning unit or giving a monetary donation, log on to  CoolDownStLouis.org.

 

Kirkwood police searching for murder suspect

Tuesday, 18 June 2013 04:19 Published in Local News

Kirkwood police are looking for a 19 year old man wanted for murder.  Police say Nicholas Lunceford shot an 18 year old man about 4:30 Monday afternoon at a home on Pleasant Court.  

   Police say Lunceford should be considered armed and dangerous.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that relatives of the victim have identified him as Brandon Richards, a recent graduate of Kirkwood High School.  

   Anyone with information about the crime or Lunceford’s whereabouts is asked to call Kirkwood Police Detective Dave Smith, at 314-698-3646.

   An off-duty St. Louis firefighter is being called a hero after rescuing a man who had driven his truck into the River Des Peres Sunday.  

   Firefighter Chris Dimza was driving in the area just west of I-55 when he saw a crowd of people was pointing toward the river.  He stopped to see why.

   Upon learning that a truck had gone into the rain-swollen river, Dimza, who's part of a water rescue unit stationed in north St. Louis, dove into the water and swam toward bubbles.  A man surfaced briefly and the firefighter was able to bring him safely to shore.  

   Fire Department divers later pulled the man's truck from the water.  

   The driver was taken to a hospital.   He has not been identified and his condition is unknown.  No one else was injured in the incident.
