Video Transcript

- Here's a look at four things you need to know today. Number one, medical expert takes the stand. Yesterday, Dr. Andrew Baker, who performed George Floyd's autopsy, was in court for Derek Chauvin's trial. He classified Floyd's death as a homicide. Baker's autopsy report lists law enforcement restraint and neck compression as the immediate cause of death, but also testified Floyd had a narrowing of arteries surrounding his heart.

Number two, as COVID cases increase in younger populations Pfizer has asked the FDA to give its vaccine the green light for emergency use in 12 to 15-year-olds. The upper Midwest is an area of concern. Michigan has the highest seven day case rate, while Minnesota is fourth.

- Number three, back out of service. Boeing told the FAA an electrical complication could impact a backup power control unit on some 737 MAX planes. Now airliners Southwest, American, United, and Alaska have been forced to remove dozens of the newly delivered aircraft from service. The move could result in a slew of canceled flights.

- And number four, four more champions will be crowned today in high school boys basketball. Hancock and Hayfield play at 1:00. Caledonia and Waseca are next. Then Alex and Minnehaha Academy, and then, Cretin-Derham Hall and Wayzata play for the championship later. Good luck to everybody.

- Thanks for joining us.
