when they were leaving, they say a group of teens attacked them for no reason. they didn't even recognize anyone in that group. jayla is still in a neck brace after what happened. earlier this week, she had a concussion. miguel had been covered in blood and he remains badly bruised. >> i blacked out at one point. >> as soon as she got in, she had to go straight into trauma. she was still screaming the whole time, walking and limping there. >> i'm just grateful from all the support i'm getting from like my family and all my friends. it's not going to stop us from going out on other dates. >> reporter: and that couple says they'll be back in school on monday morning. we did check with philadelphia police a few hours ago. they say as of right now, no update on the case and no arrests have been made. for now, i'm live outside east detectives, nbc 10 news. >> a difficult morning ahead for loved ones, grieving the victims of this deadly crash on philadelphia's roosevelt boulevard. family members tell us the two well were on their way to work when their suv slammed right into their parked truck.

nigh. this is the latest setback for new jersey transit this month. you may remember on april 3rd, a train derailed at penn station at the height of the morning rush hour. that shut down service out of manhattan for more than two hours. four people were hurt in that derailment. and just ten days before that, an acela train slipped off the tracks and bumped into a new jersey transit train, also at penn station. let's head now to south jersey in burlington county, where the fbi is looking into the murder of a woman and her 8-year-old son. last month, they were found stabbed to death in that you are home at the fox meadow apartments in maple shade. police tell us the woman's husband discovered the bodies. right now there are no arrests yesterday in this cause. calls for a philadelphia district attorney, seth williams, to resign are mounting. governor tom wolf says it's beyond time for williams to accept down as dach.a.

. all right. another live look outside. now we're looking over the skyline in philadelphia here. sunrise is 6:23 this morning. not quite there, but pretty soon we'll start seeing those peaks of sun ahead of the official sunrise and it's going to be a pretty nice day out there. we'll have increasing cloud coverage as we move throughout the day. here's the neighborhood planner. a light jacket is all you need. and we will go to those increasing clouds through the afternoon. 60 at 11:00 a.m. mid-60s by 3:00. and i think we'll cap, we're in the upper 60s in philly. through the suburbs, 45 degrees, 7:00 a.m. moving to about 62 by 3:00. very close to the same near the lehigh valley, berks county, right around 61 degrees at 3:00 p.m. although i think some highs may officially hit near the mid-60s there. in delaware, 48 degrees this morning, 7:00 a.m. a little cooler in new jersey and a little warmer along the shore. but also along the shore, we don't warm up quite as nicely.
get to the upper 50s and see some of those clouds. delaware to new jersey, 66 by 3:00 p.m. in delaware. and i think we'll see some low 70s in some spots of southern delaware, in new jersey, about the mid-60s are expected as highs for today. we'll talk more about your easter sunday forecast, coming up. delaware's first museum dedicated to its military will open in wilmington today. the delaware military museum will highlight the deeds of the state's servicemen and women over the past 350 years. after today's grand opening, you will be able to visit the museum on the second and fourth saturdays every month. the sixers talk future and why they are all in with ben simmons playing point guard. plus, the phillies and nationals working overtime. they go into extra innings. we'll show you the finish next in our saturday morning sports. ♪ we buy any car dot com ♪

looks like something out of a movie. take a look at this funnel cloud that appeared to touch down in west texas, according to local reports there, this is one of at least six possible tornadoes in the area yesterday. fortunately, no reports of any injuries or any serious damage. from bucks county, watch how not to commit vandalism. this guy in the red shirt picks up a bench and tosses it. yeah, but it bounces off the railing and hits him. police in newtown township say several businesses on sycamore street were vandalized thursday night. right now, they are looking for the man in this video. you'll want to take a look at this video, as well. an ostrich running for his life in chester county. the ostrich escaped a barn fire at nearby canter hill farm.
no animals were hurt. eventually, the ostrich was captured and will now spend time at a temporary home in exton. that was not the only animal on the loose this our area. this horse went on a scenic trip through philadelphia yesterday morning. the horse named big mama escaped from the fletcher street urban riding club in strawberry mansion and made it all the way to sugarhouse casino in fishtown before finally being corralled. >> he was coming, so i jumped and he hit me and i fell down, and i said wow! >> i wonder what route the horse took to get from strawberry mansion all the way down to delaware avenue. big mama, by the way, is doing just fine and she's now back at home. and of course, this is not the first time an animal has gotten loose on the streets of philly. this bull escaped a slaughterhouse last november. it was spotted on i-95 just outside of kensington school.
a pennsylvania game conservation officer was forced to put the bull down because of concern for the public's safety. and in 2015, two zebras escaped from a circus in west philadelphia. one made it about two miles before finally being captured. an animal of a different kind, we're talking about a bunny, the easter bunny. here is an easter tradition in gloucester county you have to see. the easter bunny skydiving into williamstown. every year, this daredevil rabbit jumps out of a plane, thrilling crowds at cross keys aur airport. this year, they placed more than 12,000 easter eggs all over the landing area. what a great day for an easter egg hunt yesterday. even better today. meteorologist krystal klei has the details with the first alert neighborhood forecast. fill us in, krystal. >> a pretty good forecast both today and tomorrow. let's go through the detail first with today, this morning, just a little cool outside to start. and really, this isn't bad
compared to where we were a month ago. we're talking 40s out there. 48 degrees, andorra, you're at 44. officially at the airport, 48 degrees, as well. mid-40s from parkwood stretching down to torresdale at 45 degrees. that's for our philadelphia neighborhoods. then we switch over to some of our delaware neighborhood temperatures, about the same. 44 degrees, harmony hills, marshalton at 45. and bridgedale at 51 degrees. middleton at 51 and rehoboth beach, same deal, 51 degrees right now. i wouldn't be surprised if later today, we do see some very low 70s this the southern-most parts of the state. here's our radar and satellite view. right now we have some thinner clouds starting to move in, but thicker cloud coverage is just off to the west of us and it will be spreading. today we are looking at increasing cloud coverage, although currently a closer view shows us that right in our area to start, we won't have those thicker clouds. that progresses through today. here's the easter weekend
forecast. today, 67 in philadelphia. 66 in the suburbs. mid-60s through the lehigh valley, new jersey, even delaware, upper 60s. a tad cooler along the jersey shore. whew? because winds are coming in from the south. so we've got that ocean air influence that's going to keep temperatures down a tad. then we zboo your sunday and check out these temperatures. really nice for the morning mass, for the easter egg hunt, for a barbecue outside. anything you've got planned, pretty good. 85 and mostly sunny in philly. lehigh valley up to 80. late-day, may see some late isolated showers, along the shore, up to 71 degrees. and also mostly sunny. there will be some chances for moisture over the next 48 hours, but the good news is, most of it comes in the overnight, when it doesn't mess up any plans. here's the hour by hour, we zoom in quickly, you've got the clouds increasing as we go into the afternoon and they will linger in and out. isolated spot shower to the north of us. that's about it. as we go into our sunday, 7:30 a.m.
that is out, we are mostly clear. so there is your forecast for easter sunday, right through 4:30 in the afternoon. still mostly sunny, but a little spot shower action starting of track along to the northern edge. and we continue to progress through to 9:30 p.m.. and what you can see here, it's very scattered and not very widespread, that we are looking at, green on the board. but still some spotty rain and isolated thunderstorm possible throughout the area, into 8:00 a.m. monday, though, we have dried out. and for the most part, we are looking at a nice day. future wind gusts, they start around 18 miles per hour, but pick up to 25-mile-per-hour gusts. breezy for today as we get into tomorrow, take a look at the forecast by the time we get into the afternoon, gusts up to the 30s for a windier forecast. we'll talk about the ten-day on 10 in the next half hour. >> announcer: this is sports desk brought to you by xfinity. phillies/nationals, good
pitching last night. erin noles and strausberg. only two hits in his career against strausberg, both homers. that is tommy's first home run of the season. let's go to the ninth. it is 2-2, runners on furs and second for the phillies. tommy joseph will get tagd hege hear. the ball is clearly not in the glove, they still call it a double glove. daniel murphy to the left field corner. bryce harper, look at him running around and he scores. walk off win. phillies lose 3-2. here is pete mckinnon on letting gomer go two innings. >> it boils down to who you have available. that's his job now to give us multiple innings. >> all right, on to the sixers. brian kang lowe and brett brown spoke about the sixers' future. they say they're looking for
shooters to play with ben simmons. how about that big question, where will ben simmons play? the sixers got right to the point. >> i think that ben simmons has a chance to be a matchup night man. >> reporter: brett brown plans to play ben simmons at point guard next season. he says ben has always wanted the ball and a great passer. president brian kang lowe says ben could be a once in a generation player, like a former lakers hall of famer. >> he's a transformational type of player, potentially, at that spot. not dissimilar to what magic brought to the point guard spot years and years ago. >> i definitely want to be a point guard and be one of the leaders. it's going to be tough, but i want to do it. >> reporter: the sixers expect jo elle to be ready to go. and with the nba expanding the season to lessen games on back-to-back nights, joelle might be able to do that.
>> i don't think, just forecasting, that back-to-backs will be an issue, but there may be the occasional time it might not be good for him to participate in. >> reporter: the sixers have the worst record in the nba over the last four seasons, trying to rebuild and they believe they are ready to take the next step. brian says brett will be the man to lead him. >> incredible what he's gone through to get to this point. i'm excited for him to be on the cusp of really being able to turn the corner. >> hopefully they are turning the corner. a i'm john clark for csn. i'm rosemary connors for "nbc10 @ issue." join me this week when we meet the so-called last don standing. >> i took the philadelphia mafia. >> with chilling frankness,
