    I am a researcher & maintenance clerk II who would love the job with the Sun Gazette proofing! I just listened to a video of an accident and that fellow (PH) needs some training in reporting. He hemmed and hawed so bad it was embarassing. Camera mainly showing people sweeping up the glass.

    Chill, L.C: today’s tirade is about illegals pouring into the country. You should change your initials to PC. If all you got from my post was that, you need to seriously talk to you anal-yst.

  • What has the town come to ?

    Apparently the reporter was up to late, or tired ?? This story blows ! Herdic Street about 1 or so mile from Williamsport Hospital, so if flown would that be to Geisinger in Danville I assume ?

    Could not tell the Police ? Or Would not tell the Police ? Sometime the gang bangers, dope heads don’t rat on the people that even shoot them. If he lost lots of blood then he may not of been able to tell police from shock, and weakness. If he chose not to tell, then he was up to NO GOOD !

    Did an illegal immigrant write this story? What part of the body is Williamsport? Which hospital was he/she flown to? Who found this child? So, you listen to the police scanner-do you do more than that? WNEP has really dropped in quality. Are you employing Sun- Gazette reporters?

      “Did an illegal immigrant write this story?” How low quality is your university that you still talk with such ignorance, fratboy? People like you are the reason the rest of get out. Even with an education people are still terrible.
