Another winter blizzard aims for the Northeast. Whitney Houston’s daughter is still in a coma. And ISIS apparently beheads a Japanese journalist.
It’s Monday, and here are the 5 things to know for your New Day
Here we go again, Northeast: As the Midwest remains buried in snow, millions will wake up Monday to sleet and blizzard conditions in the East Coast – the second round of winter weather pounding in a week. The storm put more than 9 million people in the Chicago area under a blizzard warning Sunday. And as it moves east, metropolitan areas such as New York City and Boston will be coated in ice.
Whitney Houston’s daughter in intensive care: Bobbi Kristina Brown is on a ventilator and in intensive care after she was found facedown and unresponsive in a bathtub full of water, a source close to the family said. Brown, 21, was placed in a medically induced coma and the status of her brain function won’t be known until the sedatives are reduced, the source told CNN.
Winners and losers: Unless you were buried under a rock last night, you know the New England Patriots rallied to give coach Bill Belichick a fourth Super Bowl victory. And Katy Perry danced with sharks and a beach ball. And let’s not forget Missy Elliott, who stole the show with a surprise appearance. But what were some of the most memorable moments? And who were the real MVPs? We got you covered.
One’s free at last: The Australian relatives of Al Jazeera journalist Peter Greste are “ecstatic” following his release from an Egyptian jail after more than a year. But two of his colleagues, Mohamed Fadel Fahmy and Baher Mohamed, remain behind bars.
Journalist apparently beheaded: Kenji Goto ventured to Syria to tell the stories of lives torn apart by war. But in doing so, the Japanese journalist suffered his own gruesome fate – apparently becoming the latest foreigner to be decapitated by ISIS. “To the terrorists, we will never, never forgive them for this act,” Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said yesterday.
The Northeast digs out again. Cuba shares Castro photographs. And Bobbi Kristina Brown fights for her life.
