A six year-old boy is dead after being pulled from the icy waters of Joe Creek in south Tulsa. The boy and his 12-year-old brother were playing on the frozen water when the ice gave way and they both fell into to the water.
The 12-year-old managed to get himself from the waist deep water, but the six-year-old became trapped under the ice. He had been there for about 30-minutes with police, fire and EMSA got him from the icy water. At that time, he was still alive but unresponsive. He was rushed to an ambulance and taken to hospital where he later died.

I miss getting KWTU online at work this fall. I changed school districts and they "ban" all music stations! So now I only get to listen on the hour or so drive to and from work. Thanks for keeping the music coming! - Tulsa

ARCADIA, Okla. (AP) — A 4.5 magnitude earthquake has been recorded in central Oklahoma by the U.S. Geological Survey.
The USGS says the tremor was recorded at 12:10 p.m. Saturday near Arcadia, about 14 miles northeast of Oklahoma City.

LANGSTON, Okla. (AP) — The Oklahoma State University/A and M Board of Regents have approved a ban on electronic cigarettes and other smoking devices on the Stillwater campus.
The board voted Friday during a meeting in Langston to immediately ban e-cigarettes, hookahs, vapor devices and clove cigarettes until more research on their safety is completed. The OSU Student Government Association and other groups support the ban.
State health officials have favored a ban on e-cigarettes — saying they aren't regulated and are increasingly used by teenagers.
