Infection, electrocution and injury: Florence's floodwaters may carry hidden dangers

Infection, electrocution and injury: Florence's floodwaters may carry hidden dangers

Health
Tropical Storm Florence is dumping near-record amounts of rain in parts of the Carolinas, causing catastrophic flooding that, apart from the damage to homes and businesses, poses serious health hazards to residents. Muddy, opaque floodwaters can hide large or sharp objects dislodged during a storm that can lead to injury, "anything from a fracture to a major laceration," said ABC News' chief medical correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton. The water may also contain snakes or other wildlife, human waste from overwhelmed sewage lines or chemicals leached or spilled from flooded sites. Ashton, who was on the ground in Texas after Hurricane Harvey last year, said the floodwater dangers she witnessed included drowning, electrocutions from downed power lines, and infection.

Sports
When the NFL's official injury report was released Friday for Sunday's games, 24 players were listed as out, but three key names were not among them.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlesberger, who injured his throwing elbow and saw little action early in the we...

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald sidelined by foot injury

Sports
Pittsburgh Steelers starting tight end Vance McDonald did not practice Thursday, the club announced. McDonald was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, but his inability to take the field Thursday puts in jeopardy his chances of playing in Sunday's regular-season opener at the Cleveland Browns. Entering his sixth NFL season overall and second with Pittsburgh, McDonald had 14 receptions for 188 yards and a touchdown in 10 games (seven starts) last season. If McDonald is unable to play Sunday, veteran tight end Jesse James is expected to start in his place. James started 14 games last season and established career highs with 43 receptions for 372 yards and three touchdowns. A fifth-round draft pick out of Penn State in 2015, the 6-foot-7, 261-pound James had 39 catches for 33...
