A trailblazing cinematographer working on the film "Rust" is dead and the director was hospitalized after an accident on set involving star Alec Baldwin and a misfiring prop gun, authorities said Thursday. Baldwin fired the prop gun, striking the film's director, Joel Souza, and director of photography, Halyna Hutchins, the sheriff's office said in a statement Thursday night. Hutchins, 42, was transported via helicopter to University of New Mexico Hospital, the state's only Level 1 trauma center, "in critical condition," according to sheriff's deputies and the hospital.
The U.S. Border Patrol arrested migrants more times in the past year than in any other fiscal year in recorded history, according to Customs and Border Protection data released Friday. Of those, about 1.66 million arrests were made by Border Patrol. The estimated number of migrants who evaded Border Patrol custody in 2000 was pegged at more than 2.1 million by the Department of Homeland Security.

Walmart has recalled an aromatherapy spray after it identified a bacteria in the product that has now been linked to four illnesses and two deaths. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Friday that it had identified the bacteria Burkholderia pseudomallei in the aromatherapy spray.

The Biden administration is again playing cleanup after President Joe Biden said the U.S. would come to Taiwan's defense in the event of an invasion by mainland China -- despite decades of policy that leaves that an open question.
Co-defendant Andrey Kukushkin was also convicted in the case, which was tried in a Manhattan federal court. The illegal donations overlapped with Giuliani's quest in Ukraine to unearth information that could damage then-presidential candidate Joe Biden, an effort in which Parnas allegedly positioned himself as a middleman. "In order to gain influence with American politicians and candidates, they illegally funneled foreign money into the 2018 midterm elections with an eye toward making huge profits in the cannabis business," U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said of Parnas and Kukushkin.

As global supply chain issues continue to escalate, wedding dress delays could spoil the special days for many brides-to-be. Many couples held off on weddings and rescheduled due to the pandemic, but now some brides are faced with their wedding gowns or bridal party dresses being delayed as well. Upscale bridal shop L'Fay Bridal is advising brides to prepare for increased lead times for gowns ordered through their company.
The Supreme Court will take up the Texas abortion law on the merits next month in a rare highly-expedited case that could definitively resolve the fate of its six-week ban and unprecedented enforcement mechanism. SB8 will remain in effect for the near future until the court issues its decision, which wouldn't typically be expected for weeks to months after a case is argued. The justices granted the request of Texas abortion providers and civil rights groups to hear the case before lower courts ruled on the law, meaning the law will remain in effect for now.
Truth Social, the social media app announced Wednesday by former President Donald Trump, could provide the former president with a substantial infusion of cash -- but critics also warn that it could create a new platform for the spread of misinformation. The app will be the first product of Trump's new company, Trump Media and Technology Group, which is merging with the Nasdaq-listed Digital World Acquisition Group to form a publicly traded company, the former president announced. The announcement comes at a time of turmoil for Trump's family business, with multiple branches of the Trump Organization currently under criminal investigation, sources previously told ABC News.
The Davis School District in Utah intentionally ignored widespread racial harassment, according to a scathing new report from the U.S. Department of Justice. Asian American students also were subject to widespread harassment in the district, according to the DOJ. "White and other non-Black students routinely called Black students the N-word and other racial epithets, called them monkeys or apes and said that their skin was dirty or looked like feces," the DOJ said students reported to them.
Halyna Hutchins, a well-admired cinematographer who was blazing a new path for women in her field, was killed Thursday in a tragic accident on the set of the film "Rust" in New Mexico. Actor Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun, striking Hutchins and the film's director, Joel Souza, the sheriff's office said in a statement Thursday night. Hutchins, the mother of a young son, was transported via helicopter to University of New Mexico Hospital "in critical condition" and later died, according to sheriff's deputies and the hospital.
For reporters in Washington, it’s a frequent refrain from President Joe Biden on the status of negotiations with lawmakers on his domestic agenda: "I won’t negotiate in the press." The decision was perhaps a calculated one, as the White House counts down the days before Biden departs for a major climate summit in Europe, at which the president hopes to have real domestic progress in hand to encourage other nations to adopt similar measures. Early Friday morning, Biden hosted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at the White House for breakfast, with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer joining remotely, the three leaders already back at the bargaining table.
A infant who was born at 25 weeks, after his mom was stabbed while walking on a trail in Atlanta, went home this month after spending nearly five months in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). The baby, Theodore Jude, was released from the Children's Hospital of Atlanta at Egleston on Oct. 8 with a farewell parade from nurses, who lined the halls with rattles to say goodbye. "We're obviously super grateful and praising that he's alive and with us," said Theodore's mom, Valerie Kasper.
There is a growing sense of optimism across the country, with national coronavirus infection rates steadily falling, booster shots available for many Americans and pending vaccine approval on the horizon for young children. In southern states like Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana and Georgia, which were hit early on by the delta surge, hospitalizations are on the decline. "You're starting to see an uptick in cases in the colder parts of the country and as people are driven indoors without masks on," former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb told CNN earlier this month.
A confluence of unique labor market conditions -- including record-high levels of people quitting their jobs and an apparent shortage of workers accepting low-wage jobs -- has contributed to the recent rash of work stoppages, experts say, but they also come after decades of stagnating wages and soaring income inequality in the U.S. The post-traumatic shock of a deadly pandemic that took an inordinate toll on workers who didn't have the privilege of earning a living remotely, and their families, has also been linked to the recent employee activism. "I think workers have reached a tipping point," Tim Schlittner, the communications director of the AFL-CIO, told ABC News.
"It is very important, not only to see the long resistance came up with this result, but also how much it means to the new generation," Nehad Abu El Komsan, head of the Egyptian Center for Women's Rights, told ABC News. The recent appointment of 98 judges to Egypt's State Council has considerable implications. The State Council -- established in 1946 -- is an independent judicial body and one of the pillars of the judicial authority in Egypt.
It was a boilerplate answer to what Attorney General Merrick Garland knew was a loaded question. Asked about whether Steve Bannon would face criminal charges, with the House about to vote to hold him in criminal contempt, Garland said on Capitol Hill Thursday: "The Department of Justice will do what it always does in such circumstances -- we will apply the facts in the law and make a decision consistent with the principles of prosecution." After a presidency in which almost nothing was done the ways things were always done, including with regard to the Justice Department, an expectation has set in that the rules need to change -- and that Garland, of all people, should understand that.
One mother and son duo is getting into the Halloween spirit in a viral way. Like most mothers to young kids, Nidra Cummings was excited to start thinking about her son’s Halloween costume this year. “I knew I wanted to do a really cool costume and something that was mommy and me,” she told “Good Morning America.”
Last year, Thanksgiving and Black Friday looked a little different, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While you can still get a lot of deals online, if you are ready to hit the stores, you'll want to know what's open on Thanksgiving Day and what time you can score in-person savings on Black Friday. It's the second time in Walmart's history it's closed on Thanksgiving.
