Adorable twins with different skin colors celebrate 1st birthday

QUINCY, Ill. (WFLA) – We are wishing a very happy birthday to a pair of adorable twin sisters who have become social media stars.

Kalani and Jarani Dean received widespread attention after their birth because as you can see they are not your average twins.

Kalani has light skin and blue eyes, just like her mom Whitney. While Jarani has dark skin and brown eyes, just like her dad Thomas.

Because the girls are fraternal twins, they inherited two different genes for skin color. Experts say it’s rare but obviously possible.

The two beautiful babies celebrated with a princess themed party on Sunday and loved their castle-shaped cake.

Whitney said Kalani is always on the go and is already cr...

VIDEO: Man removed from flight for using bathroom before takeoff

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Wisconsin man was removed from a Delta Air Lines flight after using the bathroom against crew instructions shortly before takeoff.

Kima Hamilton says he urgently needed to use the bathroom April 18 while on a Milwaukee-bound plane in Atlanta. He says takeoff was delayed and the flight wasn’t moving, so he decided to go.

Cellphone video shows Delta agents asked Hamilton to de-board after he got back to his seat, but he refused. The crew emptied the aircraft and allowed everyone but Hamilton back on.

Delta says it’s imperative passengers comply with crew instructions, especially at critical points of takeoff and landing.

Hamilton says FBI agents met him at the gate but didn’t arrest him. He got a partial refund but says it wasn’t enough to cover another ticket.

Final Call for Officer Jason Harris

There are few thing more heartbreaking than the final calls for police officers, regardless if they are human or K9.

Officer Jason Harris’ last call was this afternoon after his funeral.

The last radio call or radio watch is usually a call given in remembrance that calls the fallen officer’s number followed by “no response” and an out of service code.

We thank you for your service and may you rest in peace.

VIDEO: Bullets barely miss 4 year-old in barbershop, 2 arrested

CHANDLER, A.Z. (WCBD) — A four-year-old girl was nearly shot while playing in an Arizona barbershop.

Video from a security camera inside the shop shows the child hanging around near the front windows.

What no one inside knew at the time was that three men had just had a verbal dispute in the tattoo parlor next door.

When the men left the tattoo shop and drove off, one man, 23-year-old Michael David Hart, allegedly fired at least three rounds towards the tattoo parlor.

Instead of hitting the intended target, the gunshots struck the barbershop, narrowly missing the young girl.

Hart and 21-year-old Rafael Santos were arrested on Tuesday, April 11.

They were booked into the Maricopa County jail on charges that could include aggravated assault and endangerment.
