WWAY finds man incoherent in median

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — After hearing reports that Snow’s Cut Bridge had iced over our crews found a man incapacitated in the median on Carolina Beach Road.

While shooting video our crews noticed that someone had hit road construction cones on the bridge.

After turning around they found a Chevy Trailblazer in the ditch with a construction cone stuck underneath about a quarter mile north of the bridge.

Our crew then realized that someone was still inside of the car and in an attempt to be good Samaritans they knocked on the window to check if the man was ok, but he wouldn’t respond so they called 911.

Once New Hanover County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived on the scene they too tried to talk to the man.

After a few minutes the man rolled down a back window and emergency crews were able to check on him, though they never took him out of the car.

Sheriff’s Deputies noticed there were several empty liquor bottles laying around the car, but they couldn’t confirm to WWAY if they suspected that the man had been drinking.

WWAY was told that the man would be taken to the New Hanover County Jail by the North Carolina Highway Patrol.

Cold weather creates gym rush

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — It’s cold outside … but today at the gym, folk were breaking a sweat.

Treadmills, ellipticals, even fitness classes were all fully today as people took advantage of the day off from school and work to get an extra workout in.

The Gold’s Gym General Manager, Jeremiah Barnett, said while other businesses are closing, the gym is always open, “Everybody just came in from outside to come and get their workout in even though schools are closed, and businesses are closed, and people still want to work out. We’re only closed one day a year, and that’s Christmas, and other than that we’re here, and we’re ready for you.”

The gym is operating under a normal schedule right now. If something changes, you can find the closings here.
