Three rescued from West Virginia mine may have been seeking copper scrap
News ImageErica Treadway, 31, Kayla Williams, 25, and Cody Beverly, 21, were all being taken to a hospital for treatment after the rescue, said Samantha Smith of the West Virginia Office of Miners' Health, Safety and Training. A fourth person who was with the group when they entered the mine while riding all-terrain vehicles, 43-year-old Eddie Williams, found his way out on Monday to alert authorities about his missing friends. Randy Williams, the father of Kayla Williams, one of those rescued, told an ABC News affiliate that he believed the group entered the abandoned mine to look for scrap copper to sell.

Insurance claims for latest California wildfires top $9 billion
News ImageInsurance claims from the recent spate of California wildfires, including one ranked as the most deadly and destructive in state history, have topped $9 billion and are expected to grow, the state insurance commissioner reported on Wednesday. The claims, so far, fall short of the record $12 billion in wildfire-related insured losses sustained in California in 2017, most of that from more than a dozen blazes that swept a large swath of wine country north of San Francisco Bay, killing 46 people. This year, the Camp Fire that erupted on Nov. 8 has accounted for the bulk of the claims, just over $7 billion of the total.

South Carolina boy, 16, pleads guilty in school shooting rampage
News ImageJesse Osborne, who was 14 at the time of the 2016 attack on Townville Elementary School some 40 miles (65 km) southwest of Greenville, faces a maximum sentence of life in prison. Prosecutors said they did not make any deals with Osborne and his guilty plea would not reduce the sentence they are were asking a judge to impose. "I am seeking the maximum sentence in this case, life without parole, which is the appropriate sentence for the murder of six-year-old Jacob Hall, and the attempted murders of his classmates and teachers," Tenth Judicial Circuit Solicitor David Wagner said in a statement.

Opioid maker Insys paid kickbacks to physician assistant, jury hears
News ImageThe testimony came at the start of the trial in federal court in Concord, New Hampshire, of Christopher Clough, a physician assistant who prosecutors say accepted nearly $50,000 from Insys in exchange for prescribing its powerful opioid pain drug, Subsys. The trial could provide a glimpse into some of the evidence prosecutors will use in next month's trial of six former Insys executives and managers, including John Kapoor, a onetime billionaire who was the company's founder and chairman. Prosecutors say they conspired to pay kickbacks to doctors and others like Clough by paying them fees to participate in "sham" speaker programs ostensibly meant to educate medical professionals about the drug.
