Spot news Monday
I had been cruising the town looking for a story with the only action being palm tree trimmers at Tracy High. I was getting ready to wrap it up for the day when a call came across the scanner for a grass fire burning off Linne Road. Wind pushed the flames across an opened field, threatening one building and eventually jumping the road before being contained.
Smelling like a campfire I headed back to the office where another call came out of a 4-year-old crushed by a dresser falling on him. An air ambulance was on the way to take the injured child to an Oakland hospital. I arrived just in time for the landing and to get some shot of the child being loaded aboard.
I just have to remember never to wish for some action, I may actually get want I want.
