6:01 am
turned on, that's when we'll start to see your backup. san mateo bridge, 12 minute drive over it. the richmond center fell at 7 minutes holding steady and the golden gate bridge doing great under gray skies. but no fog for you. james and ari. >> thanks a lot of time. 6 o'clock right now and the bodies of the 3 oakland man who jumped into the delta to try to save a relative who appeared to be drowning. those bodies were found. yeah, they were fishing on granite island, recreational area on sunday when an 8 year-old began struggling in the water. and that's when they all jumped into the river. >> to save that child, the sheriff's office says that that child was eventually rescued. but 3 of those 5 adults who jumped in didn't make it. that's so tragic, iun't it that they all wanted to help? and 3 didn't make it. the rio vista fire departmenf says they pulled bodies from the water on tuesday. first responders want to remind everyone that the water >> can be stronger underneath and it appears from the surface.
6:02 am
>> people travel from sacramento, the trouble for the bay area. the come to this area, fish and a look at the water and the surface, it appears to be called. they let their guard down a little bit and then they end up in the water and they realize how strong the currents are. >> and we're told none of the 3 men were wearing life jackets and that, unfortunately, isn't the only drowning that happened this week. yes, a 9 year-old as well. a boy died yesterday and drowned in apartment complex swimming pool in mountain view. we've >> these drownings serving as a reminder that water safety is very important as we head into the summer months and a lot of families are going to be enjoying pools for sarah stinson. >> live with that part of the story. sarah. >> james darya. that's right. we've got a warm weekend ahead of us. we've got hot summer months ahead of us. so this drowning of a 9 year-old boy, it's a sobering reminder to be extra careful when in the water, not only with your kids, but you yourself as
6:03 am
well. let's take a look at maps. you can see where this drowning happened in mountain view at an apartment complex. it happened yesterday around 4 in the afternoon at the 1800 block of and an airy edmond, merry way in mountain view. the boy was found unresponsive in a pool 9-1-1, dispatchers told the caller to do cpr until paramedics got there. the child was taken to hospital where he tragically died. the mountain view police chief says this is completely devastating. the whole department is thinking about the family involved. detectives are still trying to figure out how the boy, what all happened. but police took the time to hand out some water safety tips, which are always good to go over as we do head into more summer months. let's take a look. it's important to supervise your kids closely while they're in the pool or any body of water more closely than you could even imagine these things happen quickly, lou, cpr, this could really see anyone's life, especially
6:04 am
at a pool or body of water where there is no lifeguard use a buddy system always swim with someone to swimming spots that have lifeguards when possible. but system is actually very helpful for people with medical conditions who are trying to enjoy a good swim. have your kids wear floaties when they're in the pool, especially if they do not have basic swim skills. and if you're in those open waters always wear a life jacket, know the risks and weather conditions of that day. now the drowning of a child is a parent's worst nightmare. more children, ages one to 4 years old, die of drowning than any other cause of death size, birth defects and this is, again, just a very sobering reminder to everyone be extra cautious as you're out there, trying to have fun live out here at a swim center where, of course there's a lifeguard. but even so those tips are very helpful. all right. james, back to you. >> all right. a terrible way to be reminded, but it's really important. thank you, sir. >> you know,

6:08 am
morning. they're going to discuss ways to address gun violence in california and also discuss the latest gun bill that congress just passed and how it aims to improve. the situation is called the safer communities act and it's supposed to improve background checks, help states implement red flag laws and invest in mental health services and more. that round table is virtual and it starts at 10 o'clock this morning. ok? >> well, san francisco mayor london breed is likely getting close to appointing a replacement for former district attorney jason bean, who you'll recall lost his job in a recall election. the mayor's pick will have to run in november than in order to hang onto the job. political analyst michael yaki says this is going to be a tough task for the mayor to come up with a choice that will make most voters happy. he says in his mind it's basically a 50, 50 chance that chase would a very well run again to try to get his job back. so whoever the mayor picks has to be somebody who can take him on potentially in november. michael says the bottom line is this is going to be a lot
6:09 am
for the mayor to have to weigh. >> it's a very precarious political tightrope for the mayor because while and i said this an election night. people didn't like what the fact that we can came in as store where he was and never left. you never. he never moved to the center of all. you can do it like most politicians do, which is to figure a way to expand your base and she someone who has that knowledge and can can be in the center but also acknowledge the progressive ideas. that attendant entered believing they they believe in second chances. we believe and rehabilitation. this is this is not something where you just have someone who's going to say i'm going to be tough on law and order expecting to win an election in just a few in november. >> so whoever the will name. >> you know, it's anybody's guess now. michael says he has a couple of gases. one could be supervisor kathryn,
6:10 am
stephanie, but he thinks that if that were the case, the mayor would have made that announcement by now. other names include former deputy da brooke jenkins. michael yaki says that that the one drawback might be the fact she's never run for office before. there's also longtime prosecutor nancy tung and former police commission member joe ally over a nice. there are some of the names also being floated as possible replacements. we will see what the mayor decides. 6.10, is the time. and now that a major cannabis tax is gone. the cost of buying marijuana is going down. >> the state got rid of the code of ation tax while making adjustments to the budget. the cultivation tax was more than $10 per ounce. medical cannabis attorney robert ray says that taxes like the cultivation tax resulted in the loss of customers. for many growers. >> it was almost impossible for small size cultivators to make a living at it and instead just deal with their neighborhood drug dealers instead.
6:11 am
>> the bill eliminating the tax will also freeze the excise tax at 15% for 3 years after which the rate could be adjusted to replace money lost by the elimination of the cultivation tax. >> 6.10, is the time breaking international news. british prime minister boris johnson has resigned following days of defections and in his own party crippling his ability to govern. johnson has been in power for almost 3 years now, despite several controversies, including office parties that broke pandemic lockdown rules. and that seems to be the straw that broke the camel's back. johnson has appointed a new cabinet. he will remain in power until a new prime minister is selected. at 6.11. we'll take a break. still ahead on the kron 4 morning news. >> hospitals across the bay area are bracing now for another covid surge. as one variant becomes dominant. we'll have that breakdown for you made while there's growing pressure on the biden administration to do something about the rise of violent crimes across the country.

6:19 am
you? so a couple things i made these comments yesterday that i think we need to increase our awareness about the red flag law. we can certainly get you the details of that red flag law. we have a little bit of information about that today. a just released police report details highland park police is interaction with the shooter in september 2019. >> it says robert stated that he was going to kill everyone in a redacted name was afraid to go home due to the nature of this threat and had a collection of knives in his bedroom. >> police talked to crimo and say he told them he wasn't going to hurt himself or anyone else. law enforcement says because the shooter's family did not press charges or request the weapons he would later by be taken away as part of the red flag law. the troubling incidents did not impact him buying guns. could the police have made that request, though, if the family didn't says the police went out to the home, could they have it on a case by case basis? and we depend on the individual information. >> that they had at that time, despite the police calls in the violent online videos and the troubling paintings on the side of the house and images obtained exclusively by news nation. the shooter's angele

6:22 am
crime issues, notably with ongoing mass shootings. most recently a gunman opened fire from rooftops on the cloud celebrating independence day in highland park, illinois. >> so far authorities say 7 people have died 20 minutes from the house. i grew up just another horrific reminder. >> violence leave the gun violence that we face. authorities say that gunman has now confessed to the crime and he had ar 15 style weapons. president biden and vice president harris are renewing their calls to ban assault weapons. and that's a call that lake county state's attorney eric rinehart echoes. yeah, a band of these types of weapons. >> between 1994 2004. everything shows that these types of horrifying devastating incident went down during that time. >> but right now there appears to be little to no desire among republican lawmakers to ban assault weapons. however,

6:31 am
there in the distance. this is going to burn off quicker than it did yesterday and what we'll have today's abundant sunshine and even less muggy feel in fact, are cooler temperatures this morning can partly be attributed to the less moist atmosphere allowing temperatures to fall a little further overnight. why we're in the upper 50's this morning in mid-fifties across the north bay. all be breaking down. more of what you can expect as we start the weekend. and of course, the warm-up in the next week. still ahead, as far as our ridges go, we're still grates. 13 minutes at the bay bridge. you just saw the metering lights turn on. so that backup is now forming. but you're pretty typical stuff as you make your crossing there. as for the san mateo bridge unchanged since my last check with you in just a few more cars. but you're still at the limits. your drive times that affected richmond center fell bridge below 10 minutes to make your crossing there. and the golden gate bridge looking great. still consistently has been bad over and the past couple of days. but i've got good news for you this morning. nothing's holding the app as you get through marine into the city. darya james.
6:32 am
>> thanks a lot. 6.31, let's talk. covid cases are rising and that has local doctors closely watching the emergency rooms in the icu capacity. yeah, i do want to get to full crop forcefully to call shows us what they're seeing as again, covid cases are spiking. >> fortunately, the hospitalizations of in the icu utilization has been extreme advice. president of clinical affairs for john muir health doctor. nick, my kids says 32 hospitalized patients are being treated for covid-19 at the system's hospitals in concord and walnut creek. adding that 3 patients are in the icu. those numbers mirror what the hospital has experienced the last month, which doctor mike is says is manageable. this is where we want we want to get enough people vaccinated that there was nothing unity amongst the community that we knew we were going to be able to to weather the storm so that even u.s. infection rates went up. >> people wouldn't be a zone. that's kind of where we are right now. kumar is president and ceo of dignity, health
6:33 am
saint francis memorial hospital and saint mary's medical center in san francisco. >> he says the icu capacity at both hospitals has reached 70%. we've definitely got capacity, both medical center. so we're not in a surge capacity like we saw in january. we're just seeing a higher percentage of our patients actually come into hospital. that, by the way, happened to have covid as well. ucsf says 56 hospitalized children and adults have tested positive for covid-19 and its facilities in mission bay and oakland. >> that's a 7% drop from a month ago. statewide covid-19, related hospitalizations are up 40% since the first week of june. >> and the number of covid-19 patients admitted into intensive care units has increased 34% during the past month. phillipe djegal all kron. 4 news. >> and if you do get covid now it's going to be easier to get the covid pill. yeah. the fda announcing the pharmacist can now begin prescribing the
6:34 am
covid pill paxlovid. we've got kron four's camila barco standing by outside a pharmacy in burlingame with that story. good morning. camila. >> good morning. you guys previously only doctors and physicians could prescribe the covid-19 pill paxlovid. but now people can go to a pharmacist like the ones that cvs and walgreens and get the pill prescribed by those pharmacists and deiah. james, this is a game changer because doctors say that this bill needs to be taken as soon as possible for it to be effective. now paxlovid is pfizer's covid-19 pill and the pill is normally prescribed to people who have covid-19 and are at risk of getting terribly sick. but doctors like i said, should be to say that it should be taken within 5 days at the start of symptoms for 8 to be helpful. now people will be able to have more access to packs of it because more pharmacies are now able to prescribe the pill. but in order to get that bill, people need to bring in
6:35 am
some paperwork to those pharmacies. patients is show their recent health records like blood test also a list of any current medications that they're taking this way. pharmacist can determine whether someone who has covid-19 is eligible to be prescribed. pat summitt packs of now they don't have enough information as an alternative. pharmacist can also talk with the patient's doctor. there have been tested to treat sites and this allows people to get tested for covid and if they are sick, health care workers at those sites could prescribe treatments for covid. now expanding the test to treat program to include pharmacists could add thousands of additional options for patients and darya. james cvs health and walgreens. they have about 19,000 of those locations combined. so instead of now calling a doctor or making an appointment going to that appointment. and i'm having a doctor check on the covid-19 symptoms. if you do think you have covid-19 symptoms, you can walk inside a pharmacy
6:36 am
like cvs and walgreens. talk to a pharmacist show that paperwork and maybe then you will be able to be prescribed paxlovid send it back to okay, that good information. thank you, camila. and when it comes to covid, the cdc has now added 3 new destinations. >> that are at high risk for travel for a covid reasons tamala, morocco and sweden are now among the nearly 115 destinations that are on the list of places with high covid transmission rates. almost half of the places monitored by the cdc. they say are at a level 3. if you're traveling to any of the destinations on the covid list, the cdc recommends that you be up to date on your vaccines and they say if you're not vaccinated, you should travel to those places. in an attempt to avoid another nationwide baby formula shortage. the biden administration is working to help for manufacturers. stay in the u.s. market for good. the fda is going to help the producers meet existing
6:37 am
requirements so that they can keep selling their formula here in the u.s. those manufacturers are currently selling formula temporarily because we've had such a shortage. the agency is going to be hosting meetings and provide producers with a point of contact to assist them and make the application process more efficient. the white house says that by this sunday their efforts will have brought in more than 43 million bottles worth of infant formula into the u.s.. >> in the east bay, neighbors in danville on alert now following a string of recent crimes in the city. one of them was robbed in front of trader joe's last friday. police say 3 people robbed a man at gunpoint. officers arrested the group of robbers. 2 of them turned out to be teenagers. the other is 18 years old, but residents are still concerned. they're asking for a lot more police presence in danville. >> police in danville now i see. that they parked cars occasionally, which helps people slow down and look,
6:38 am
which is good. i don't know. maybe get out here more like on bicycles that the more presidents that way. >> well, there was a park danville police vehicle in that parking lot. shoppers say it's been there a while before last friday's robbery. san francisco assemblyman phil ting has announced a 30 million dollar grant to help stop crimes against the asian american pacific islander community. that money. we'll meet greater services for victims. more senior escort programs, mental health programs and additional activities that promote greater cultural understanding the asian american legislative caucus will also be using that money to fight anti-asian hate crimes over the next 3 years. just so we're very, very excited to see >> the grants go to many of our largest community organizations also working in large coalition, really proud of the coalitions that have come together to really work together to fight. >> ap, i hate.
6:39 am
>> yes, some of the groups already slated to get grants include the commission on asian pacific islander american affairs and the coalition for community safety and justice assembly member team is also working on a bill to get law enforcement agencies statewide to adopt official hate crime policies. >> it's and new revelations now in the mass shooting that happened in uvalde, texas. it turns out the gunman could have been stopped according to a report, an officer armed with a rifle asked his supervisor for permission to shoot the gunman after seeing him walking toward the school. >> but within moments he was gone. john lowe, washington has the very latest. >> according o this alert report, this all happened quick. the officer apparently turned to a supervisor asked for permission to shoot the gunman after seeing him walk toward the school, the rifle. then when he turned back around, it was too late and the gunman wasn't there anymore. report actually said the officer should have just taken the shot. i quote, a
6:40 am
reasonable officer would conclude in this case based upon the totality of the circumstances that use of deadly force was warranted. texas code does allow deadly force if an officer thinks it's necessary. according to the report the officer thought he might miss fire and hit the school instead hurting children. something else shocking that came out this report. there was also another officer who was near the gunman before he entered the school. this officer reportedly didn't see him as he was speeding into the parking lot. and according to alert, have the officer and driving more slowly or even parked and approached the school on foot. he would have had a better chance at seeing the gunman and possibly stopping him. now, there are some major issues here that alert pointed out outside of what we've already talked about. one, there were teams of officers at both ends of the hallway. this would have created a, quote, crossfire situation into officers did approach the doors. the gunman started firing, but then backed up which goes against alert code saying officers are expected to, quote, assume
6:41 am
