Searching for stowaways
June 27, 2012 (WABC) -- So you can just imagine the scene at Port Newark early this morning. A ship with a couple of hundred containers, and inspectors thought they heard voices coming from one of them.
Hey, did you hear something? Yeah, maybe I did, did you? Yeah, I think I did.
So they searched. And searched. And searched some more.
Nothing. Nada. Zip.
Someone is presumably still searching, although all the code-blue kind of units have since left. If you hear something say something. So they did.
Tonight at 11 we look at just how the Coast Guard and Port Authority responded.
And we're getting a lot of your messages today, remembering Nora Ephron, the incredibly talented and creative writer and director whose movies often became the story boards of our lives. She was a quintessential New Yorker - born here, raised in L.A., but then lived here as an adult. She was 71 and had been battling Leukemia. Her chemotherapy treatment is what took her life.
We'll also have any breaking news of the night, plus Meteorologist Amy Freeze (in for Lee Goldberg) with her AccuWeather forecast, and Rob Powers with the night's sports, including the bad news for the Yankees, with pitcher Andy Pettitte out 6 weeks with a fracture of his left ankle.
I hope you can join us tonight at 11.
