Brynne, I’m calling from Legacy Emanuel Medical Center. There’s been a serious accident this morning. Ms. Foster was struck by a car. I’m very sorry to inform you that she passed away [as a result of the injuries she sustained]. Would you be able to come to the center to answer some questions for us?

Female Television Anchor

FEMALE TELEVISION ANCHOR (VO)

An eight year old girl is safe at home tonight with her parents after a day at the beach that almost turned to tragedy had it not been for the timely intervention of a heroic passerby.

Near Cannon Beach earlier today, Jessica Lamont became separated from her parents as her family was playing on the beach. The girl was climbing along a rocky ledge overlooking the ocean when she lost her footing and fell into the turbulent water. As she grasped for the rocks and cried out, Brynne Vaness, who happened to be nearby, heard Jessica’s cries. As luck would have it, Vaness also happened to be carrying a rope with her and was able to reach the struggling girl within seconds. Vaness tossed the end of the rope to the girl and pulled her to the shore.

It was her quick and selfless response that saved the girl’s life [pause] and returned Jessica to her relieved and grateful parents.

Up next, be prepared for zombies … on bikes! It‘s the annual zombie bike ride through downtown Portland.

Brynne Vaness (read by Mariessa Portelance) can see the future, or so she says. And those that believe and those that do not believe will go to any lengths to prove it.
