While Arizona sinkholes are rare, they are not unheard of. They have caused fatalities, car crashes, and serious injuries. They can open up at a moment’s notice and take everyone by surprise, and it’s often difficult to figure out where they’ll be. In 2016, one man lost his life after stopping his truck, opening his tailgate, and then being swallowed by a sinkhole that was around 18 feet deep. When authorities arrived, his truck engine was still idling and his tools were on the ground. The sinkhole that he fell into had rapidly filled with water, and he couldn’t escape. Read the rest »

When you dropped your baby girl off at Loving Rainbows Learning Center this morning, everything was fine. But after work, you pick up a toddler who can’t seem to stop whining. What’s going on? Then you notice her arm…it looks wrong somehow. One quick trip to the pediatric emergency room later, and you discover that your baby suffered a stretched nerve in her shoulder.
Now, your worries have just begun: will this heal completely? How much pain will she suffer? How can I best care for her? And, most of all: How could this happen at daycare??

There are many causes for rollover crashes, and rollovers can be serious, even deadly. On July 6, 2018, two cars were involved in a fatal crash on Interstate 10 at Kolb Road in Tucson.

The road was closed after the crash, causing other drivers to wait for several hours or turn through the median to go back the other way. Read the rest »
We’ve all been there. Sitting in our pajamas after a long day of work, watching the evening news…when we hear a real horror story. A child has been abused, and it was caught on a nanny cam.
