Federal officials: Dallas nurse free of Ebola

The first nurse diagnosed with Ebola after treating an infected man at a Dallas hospital is free of the virus and is being released, the National Institutes of Health said Friday.

Nina Pham, 26, was to be released from the NIH hospital near Washington.

She will make a brief statement but won't take questions during a news conference late Friday morning with her doctors, said John Burklow, an NIH spokesman.

Pham arrived Oct. 16 at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. She had been flown there from Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas.

Pham is one of two nurses in Dallas who became infected with Ebola while treating Thomas Eric Duncan, who died of the disease Oct. 8.

The other nurse, 29-year-old Amber Vinson, is being treated at Emory University Hospital near Atlanta. Her family said Wednesday in a statement that doctors can no longer detect Ebola in her body. Her mother said then that she had been approved for transfer from isolation. Emory declined to release information about her condition.

Pham's dog, a King Charles Spaniel named Bentley, has tested negative for the virus. The city of Dallas has said the 1-year-old dog will be tested again before his 21-day quarantine period ends Nov. 1. Bentley is being cared for by the City of Dallas Animal Services at a decommissioned naval air base.

Breast cancer survivor receives gift to World Series

A breast cancer survivor in San Jose received a once in a lifetime present that she tells KTVU she can now cross off her bucket list.

A family member gave Eileen Low a pair of tickets to see her beloved San Francisco Giants play Friday in Game 3 of the World Series.

Low tells KTVU Friday is a very special day after a difficult and painful journey.

"Thanks again for the tickets, Michelle," Low tells her niece as they spoke to each other on Skype.

Michelle Tran, who lives in Manhattan, gifted Low with the tickets as a "get well" present.

Michelle says Low was a "second" mother to her...helped to raise her and brought her to Giants games as a child.

"Just excited and grateful," described Low about her reaction to the gift.

Eight months ago, Low received the dreaded diagnosis: stage 2 breast cancer.

"Disbelief, it wasn't anger, not why me? It happens. Let's just deal with it," said Low.

She said she told each of her three children individually.

It was a difficult task, especially since her nine-year-old daughter Kiersten has a friend who lost her mother to cancer.

To help her children cope, Low involved them in her battle with cancer. They cut and shaved off mom's hair.

"It helped because I knew she was going to be OK," said Kiersten.

"I didn't want to lose my hair in clumps and I thought it would be fun to have a haircutting party. They get to cut it," said Low.

She's now done with chemotherapy and her last radiation session was Wednesday.

After undergoing a double mastectomy, she says it'll be at least six months before she can have reconstructive surgery.

Former San Francisco police officer pleads guilty in corruption case

A former San Francisco police officer indicted along with two officers in a corruption probe has acknowledged stealing more than $5,000 in computers, gift cards and other property from people during searches.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports  that Reynaldo Vargas pleaded guilty to four felony charges this week. In his plea agreement, Vargas acknowledged the thefts, but also said he and two other officers, Sgt. Ian Furminger and Officer Edmond Robles, took marijuana.

The 45-year-old Vargas said he then gave the drugs to two people the three officers were trying to recruit as informants, knowing they would sell them.

Furminger and Robles have pleaded not guilty and are scheduled to go to trial in November.

Vargas was fired from the police department in 2012.
