Confusion and bedlam at Fenty HQ after a volunteer falls through a glass window

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Tuesday evening, a volunteer fell and crashed through a plate glass window at Mayor Adrian Fenty's headquarters, where hundreds of people gathered to await election results.

It happened shortly before midnight Tuesday. Paramedics were tending to a young man who was bleeding badly from the head. The man was conscious and talking and walked to the ambulance under his own power.

A reporter at the scene was surrounded by shards of plate glass; his laptop computer had glass all over it. The window the volunteer fell through was about 9 feet by 9 feet.

A small ruckus ensued when Fenty supporters tried to block TV cameras from filming the aftermath of the accident.

Norton Wins Democratic Primary For DC Delegate

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Eleanor Holmes Norton has won the Democratic primary race for Delegate to the U.S. House of Representatives. The win virtually assures her an 11th term as Washington's representative in Congress.

Winning an 11th term in November would make Norton's tenure longer than Walter Fauntroy, the only other person to hold the position since it was reinstated in the 1970s. Norton still faces Republican and Green Party challengers in the November general election, but because three quarters of the city's residents are registered Democrats, Norton is virtually assured the win.

With 28 percent of precincts reporting Tuesday, Holmes Norton had 23,631 votes, or 91 percent, compared to 2,259 votes for her challenger Douglass Sloan, 9 percent.

Norton has represented the city since 1991 but does not have a vote on the floor in Congress.

Vote Counting Under Way In DC Primary

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Vote counting is under way in the District of Columbia primary and mayoral challenger Vincent Gray is leading in the early results in the Democratic race.

With 23 percent of precincts reporting, Gray had 11,953 votes, or 54 percent, compared to 9,847 votes for Mayor Adrian Fenty, or 45 percent.

Fenty is trying to fend off a challenge from Gray, the chairman of the District of Columbia Council. Because the city is heavily Democratic, the winner of the primary will likely become mayor.

The Hidden Danger of PAD

WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- Most of us know that fatty buildups in the arteries around the heart spell trouble, even a possible heart attack.  The same is true for the brain, where a blocked blood vessel can trigger a stroke.

But what happens when blood vessels in other parts of the body start to clog?  It is called peripheral artery disease.  PAD can be a harbinger of hidden health problems to come.

Dr. Richard Neville is chief of vascular surgery at Georgetown University Hospital.  He says, " Many people have it and don't know it."

In fact, as many as 9 million Americans have this vascular condition, and Georgetown is not only sounding the alarm about PAD, but offering to screen people for free.
