dock collapsed in savannah georgia. it happened last night. the dock connects passengers to a ferry crossing, and suddenly gave way, dumping the victims into the savannah river. >> it is collapsed and i thought i was dying. adrienne: the firefighter who died suffered some kind of medical condition. investigators are trying to figure out why the dock collapsed. new tonight, the coast guard arrives to help a drifting and sinking scalloper boat. the 72-footer was 5 miles off the coast of new bedford in maine. the captain says he put the boat on auto pilot to take a bathroom break. that's when it hit a rock ledge, causing the motor to shut down and take on water. a copter crew came with pumps to safely rescue the 5 men and one woman on board. >> the captain seemed a little bit disoriented and he wasn't wet, so i don't think he was hypothermic.
10:40 pm
the crew beached the boat and continued to pump water. it was hauling 5,000 pounds of scallops. sheldon: you might have them in your neighborhood speed bumps designed to help , slow traffic. but as wisn-12 news kent wainscott investigates, those safety steps are also raising some safety concerns. reporter: speed bumps, or humps or tables they go by different names, but the idea is the same, to get drivers to slow down. >> they don't look. they don't be aware that there are a lot of kids in the neighborhood. martita clarke worked to get a new speed hump in her southside milwaukee neighborhood. they're speed tables, and brand new on erin gerhardt's block in wauwatosa. >> there was definitely a need for them, just for the safety of our children. but cars, sometimes speeding through neighborhood streets, aren't the only ones suddenly having to slow down. fire trucks, emergency response vehicles, racing to a scene are also being forced to hit the brakes. >> you have to be concerned when you're driving that, in some of
10:41 pm
truck, that impact is greater than it is in maybe our command vehicles. reporter: wauwatosa city officials raised the fire department's concern at a recent meeting to discuss whether to install new speed humps on a local street. >> they have significant concerns about traffic humps or tables. reporter: the biggest concern is delayed response time. >> the delay is normally in the range of seconds, but it is something we're concerned about because those seconds start to add up. reporter: one study from portland, oregon found speed bump slows the average fire truck response time by 9 seconds. another report out of north carolina showed fire units delayed 10 seconds by speed bumps. but while the studies show that emergency response is only delayed by a matter of seconds, more speed humps mean longer delays. this stretch of coldspring road in new berlin has 7 of them in less than a mile. new berlin fire officials tell us they've not had any emergency calls on that route since the speed humps were installed.
10:42 pm
double in size every 60 seconds, a delay of a minute or more can be critical. local fire departments say speed bumps haven't posed any major problems for them yet, but they have become part of their response planning. >> if there's two routes that are the same distance, same time frame, one with the speed tables or bumps, one without. we'd probably go the one without. reporter: and local residents hoping for safer streets, are realizing they may be giving up something in return. >> it's a trade off, it is a b fire truck comes once in a great while, hopefully never. but the cars are constantly coming. reporter: it's a trade off she says she'll take for now. >> if there's a fire in my house, of course i want the fire truck right away. sheldon: that was kent wainscott reporting. fire departments often have some input into where the speed bumps are located. the milwaukee fire department is consulted on locations and as a result, hasn't seen any significant impact on response times despite having 217 speed
10:43 pm
and in wauwatosa, a fire department official is on the city's traffic committee, and has input on where to place speed humps or tables. adrienne: a little texas girl who did a good deed is now reaping a sweet reward. nine-year-old chloe gallegos and her mom watched an online video of a woman stealing tip jar money at their local store daylight donuts. later that week, they stopped at the store. that's when chloe decided to leave the owner, who she calls donut man a surprise. >> because i felt re b him for getting his money stolen. i took my tooth fairy money when no one was looking we put it in the tip jar. reporter: that's adrienne: that is so generous. the store owner says chloe is an amazing kid. he's offering her free donuts for as long as he owns the
