Rescuers recover vehicle from Selway river, no bodies inside

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - Rescuers have recovered a sport utility vehicle from the upper Selway River in the Idaho backcountry, but Idaho County Sheriff Doug Giddings says none of the four hunters missing since the crash earlier this week were inside.

The vehicle flipped into the river early Monday in a remote part of central Idaho about 60 miles west of Darby, Montana. Two of six men inside, identified by authorities as Jesse Gunin and Jason Lewis, escaped the vehicle without major injuries and have returned to Georgia.

Giddings says the SUV was recovered Thursday and that searches for the other men would continue.

The missing men have been identified by the sheriff's office as 21-year-old Koby Clark of Bozeman, Montana; 22-year-old Reece Rollins of Terrebonne, Oregon; and brothers Raymond Ferrieri and Jesse Ferrieri, ages 24 and 21, of Mahopac Falls, New York.

Obese patients less likely to die from infection after hospitalization, study finds

Obesity has been linked to several health issues, including heart disease and diabetes. However, the extra fat could have some benefits, according to a new report.

Researchers from the European Association for the Study of Obesity recently conducted a trial to explore the survival rates of those admitted to hospitals for infections. 

To do so, they analyzed more than 35,000 patients in Denmark hospitalized for infections between 2011 and 2015. They then followed the subjects 90 days after their discharge, making note of their weight.

After analyzing the results, they found that obese individuals were 40 percent less likely to die from an infection compared to underweight people, and they were 50 percent less likely compared to normal weight people. 

“Overweight and obesity were associated with substantially reduced 90 day mortality following incident hospital admission for infection,” the researchers wrote. 

They also noted that underweight people were twice as likely to die from infection compared to those at a normal weight. However, they said recent weight loss may have been due to an underlying disease and noted deaths did not increase for underweight patients who had not recently lost weight.

The findings were presented at the European Congress on Obesity in Austria, and three other studies discovered similar results. 

Taiwanese researchers found that obese people hospitalized for pneumonia were 20 to 30 percent less likely to die from the illness.

The same team said hospitalized overweight or obese patients were also more than 20 percent less likely to die from sepsis, a blood infection.

Savannah police officer killed while directing traffic

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say a Savannah police officer was struck and killed by a tractor trailer rig while helping direct traffic at a crash scene.

The department announced the death of 37-year-old Anthony Christie on Friday.

News outlets report Christie was at a crash scene on Interstate 16 about 2:30 a.m. when he was hit.

Department spokeswoman Bianca Johnson says Christie was parked in his patrol car with lights activated in the eastbound lanes of the highway to divert traffic off the road onto another artery when the tractor trailer struck the side of his vehicle.

Christie, a U.S. Navy veteran, was hired by the police department in 2015 and completed the academy in 2016. He was assigned to the Central Precinct. He leaves behind his wife, Nicole.

Funeral arrangements are pending.

A teacher, identified by The Indianapolis Star as Jason Seaman, sprung into action after a student asked to use the bathroom Friday morning and returned to the classroom with a pair of handguns, police said.

Seventh-grader Ethan Stonebraker told The Associated Press that students were taking a test when the unidentified student walked into the classroom and opened fire.

“Our science teacher immediately ran at him, swatted a gun out of his hand and tackled him to the ground,” seventh-grader Ethan Stonebraker told The Associated Press. “If it weren’t for him, more of us would have been injured for sure.”

The Star reported that Seaman was shot three times and underwent surgery Friday. An unidentified student was also injured, according to police.

He released a written statement to media Friday evening: 

“First of all, thank you to the first responders from Noblesville and Fishers for their immediate action and care. I want to let everyone know that I was injured (but) am doing great. To all the students, you are all wonderful and I thank you for your support. You are the reason I teach.”

Jason Seaman’s brother, Jeremy Seaman, told the Star that he was not surprised by reports of his brother’s actions.

“He’s not really ever been the person to run away,” Jeremy Seaman told the Star. “When the safety of the kids is at hand, it’s not surprising to me that he was going to do what he had to do.”

Jason Seaman has been a teacher in Noblesville for four years, according to his LinkedIn profile. He has also served as head football coach for seventh-graders for two years.

Jeremy Seaman  told the Star that his brother is married with two young children.

Jason Seaman played college football for Southern Illinois from 2007 to 2010, according to ESPN. The team's head coach, Nick Hill, said in a statement Friday that Jason Seaman "was a great teammate (and) one of the team's hardest workers." 

"You could always trust him to do the right thing," he said.

Jason Seaman continued to recover Friday. Police continue to investigate the shooting.
