Never the kind of news I want to report: "Woman, baby in critical condition after car crashes into Metairie canal":  http://ow.ly/FDum30hQ1lE  @NOLAnews
BREAKING: Interim JP Sheriff Joseph Lopinto confirms a woman and baby taken to hospital in critical condition after car plunges into Metairie canal.
Sounds like there may have been another person in the vehicle, possibly a child. But that information has not yet been confirmed.
JPSO, fire dept. on scene of crash at Wilson and W. Esplanade Avenue in Metairie. Chief Dave Tibbets said one car in the canal. At least one person pulled from vehicle.
