Baby Auston Beats the Odds!

Toddler Recovers.jpg

It's a story everyone seems to be talking about... the 18 month old (ADORABLE) Meridian toddler who survived a terrible pencil accident at the park. Auston Banks fell on a pencil while he was playing, and it went right in through his mouth and into the back of his throat. It came dangerously close to being much more serious.

Our cameras were IN the operating room over the weekend when the 6 inch pencil was removed safely by doctors at St. Luke's, and miraculously TODAY he is going HOME! He's going to make a full recovery.

(Our reporter Scott Evans says he's running, playing... and even eating green jello!)

Stories like this one really make me happy!

It's so rare to be able to share such a wonderful ending like this with our viewers... you should really watch KTVB's Scott Evans and his full story on this incredible toddler on our homepage:

It will make your day!

The Biggest Loser Finale!

Don't forget...

Tonight is the season finale of NBC's "The Biggest Loser"!

Idaho sisters Mandi and Aubrey are in L.A., and ready for that final weigh in! We caught up with them at the airport before they left, and they look amazing! (Super thin!) If one of the girls loses the most weight (of the contestants already sent home) one of them could win $100,000!

PS: I'll be cheering for the girls from the comfort of my couch. Wait, on second thought - I really should go watch them while I workout at the GYM. It's hard to be so lazy when they are working so hard!
