Triple digit temperatures expected on Friday

Temperatures will soar into the triple digits east of the Caldecott Tunnel Friday with the warming trend expected to continue through the weekend, forecasters predicted.

KTVU meteorologist Mark Tamayo said temperatures would likely reach triple digits in Antioch, Livermore and other East Bay inland areas over the next 24 hours and then dip slightly over the weekend.

Meanwhile, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District has issued a Spare the Air alert for Friday as winds were also forecasted to be light.

Forecaster Bob Benjamin said San Francisco was expected to reach at least 80 degrees, while coastal areas will be in the mid- to upper-70s.

The hot days are not record-breaking, but getting close, Benjamin said.

Livermore would have to get to 111 degrees to set a new record for the date. San Jose, which is expected to reach a high of 96 Friday, will come close to its 99-degree record.

So-called monsoonal humidity in San Francisco and other parts of the region will diminish as the heat moves in, Benjamin said. .

Child’s deathbed thoughts focused on helping others

The parents of 11-year-old Liang Yaoyi were stunned by his request.

As cancer ravaged his body, the fifth grader from the Chinese city of Shenzhen focused on how he could save others if he could not survive his own battle.

"There are many people doing great things in the world," he said from his sickbed according to the China "They are great, and I want to be a great kid too."

He told his parents he wanted to donate his organs so others could live.

On Friday, the brave young boy who dreamed of becoming a doctor lost his battle with brain cancer. Immediately, doctors went to work removing his organs for transplant.

Hospital officials said his kidney and liver were transplanted into other patients who were suffering from life-threatening ailments.

As his body was wheeled for the surgery room, the medical team stopped and formed an honor guard, bowing to the gurney carrying Yoayi’s remains in honor of the brave boy.

The photo triggered social media responses from around the world.  In his final hours, Liang Yaoyi's choice and life had touched the lives of millions.

City officials consider $15 million settlement in San Francisco park death

San Francisco city officials are considering a $15.1 million payout to the family of a woman who was struck and killed by a city gardener while with her dog and baby at a park.

The city's Recreation and Parks Commission voted last week in favor of the payment to Christine Svanemyr's widower and child as part of a legal settlement recommended by the city attorney. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the settlement will now go before the Board of Supervisors.

Authorities say the 35-year-old Svanemyr was run over while she relaxed in the grass on Sept. 5 by a maintenance vehicle driven by Thomas Burnoski.

Burnoski has been charged with vehicular manslaughter and felony hit-and-run.

His lawyer, Robert Waggener, has said Burnoski didn't realize he had hit a person.
