1. The 12 jurors and 10 alternates who will decide whether Nikolas Cruz receives the death penalty or life in prison for the Parkland school shooting made a rare visit to the scene of the crime on Thursday along with a select number of journalists. Large pools of dried blood still stained classroom floors and scenes of the chaos that day were still present. (WSVN)

5. A South Florida animal rescuer, Liz Jones, crawled through a storm drain in Delray Beach to rescue a six-week-old kitten trapped in the pipe for days. She said it wasn’t her first time crawling into a storm drain to save an animal and it probably will not be her last. (Miami Patch)
