Hidden danger in your home

Hidden danger in your home

Good evening from the WBRC Newsroom! This is Jonathan Hardison and I'm just shaking my head right now at the two kinda crazy stories we're working on for you tonight.

Unexpected killer

First, a science experiment in our newsroom to show you how a small watch battery can burn through soft tissue, like a child's esophagus. We're demonstrating that acidic power on  piece of bologna, and talking to the family of a child who had no idea she'd swallowed a battery or how deadly it could be until it's too late. An important warning you'll want to see tonight on WBRC FOX6 News at 9.

Professional cuddler?

Would you pay someone just to cuddle with you? New on WBRC FOX6 News at 10 our Lydia Hu is talking to a professional cuddler in Birmingham who charges $60 and one of her clients who say there are therapeutic benefits here, and nothing wrong with this arrangement. What do you think? We'll see if your opinion holds after your see our piece tonight at 10.

I hope you'll watch us on air, online at WBRC.com, or in the WBRC News app by clicking "Live Newscasts" in the menu.
