    Look, you would want to keep the football that you threw for your first touchdown in the NFL, too.

    That's how third-string quarterback Nate Sudfeld felt after subbing in for an injured Nick Foles Sunday. In the fourth quarter, he floated the ball to Nelson Agholor in the fourth quarter for a TD against the Redskins -- Sudfeld's first in the NFL.

    Sudfeld called to Agholor to keep the ball, but Agholor was already handing it to a jersey-clad kid in the stands. 

    Which led to a sweet scene in which the young fan gave Sudfeld the ball and got plenty in return.

    "It’s still sinking in that I got an NFL football, and I got to meet players," said Cohen Zechman, 10, via Facebook Live.

    Cohen and his dad, Derrick, were seated in the second row of the end zone when Agholor scored. Cohen looked thrilled when his dad was able to get Agholor's attention and then got the ball for his son.

    And Sudfeld looked a little sheepish when he approached and asked if there was any way they could switch.

    "Nelson was looking all over. Then, he spotted me and came over. He gave me the ball. Then, I saw Nate had, like, a funny face," Cohen said.

    The swap was made. But don't worry about Cohen, an Eagles fan from Northumberland County, Pennsylvania.

    He ended up with not only good feelings from Eagles fans everywhere but with another signed ball and gloves from Agholor and Zach Ertz.

    They will fit in well with Cohen's collection of Eagles swag, including a Fathead, signed helmet and replica Super Bowl ring.

    "Pretty cool stuff, but what we got last night really was awesome!" Cohen's mom said on the Facebook Live.

    "It worked out nice because I got a ball, and he got his first career touchdown. And he deserves it more," Cohen said.

    Agholor, meanwhile, didn't seem too concerned.

    "Nate Sudfeld is gonna throw a lot more," Agholor said after the game. "He's gonna throw a lot more touchdowns and have a great NFL career."

    A local man began a cross-country bike trip to honor his friend and colleague, Cory Iverson, a Cal Fire firefighter who died battling the Thomas Fire in 2017.

    Thomas Pitman will bike from the Imperial Beach Pier to Jacksonville Beach, Florida, covering nearly 2,500 miles and raising money for his friend along the way.

    Iverson, an Escondido resident, died in Ventura County, fighting the blaze that spread to more than 242,500 acres.

    He had worked with Cal Fire since 2009.

    Pitman hopes to raise money to benefit a foundation created in Iverson’s name.

    “I’m doing this to raise funds for his wife’s foundation that she pretty much set up in his memory and honor,” Pitman said.

    The Iverson Foundation for Active Awareness (IFAA) aims to provide programs to help reduce the rates of suicide, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other stressors in the lives of first responders.

    “The job impacts them whether you want to admit it or think it or not,” Iverson’s wife, Ashley, told NBC 7. “What they see and do on a daily basis is something that the human brain can only compartmentalize for so long."

    Pitman’s goal is $2,426, one dollar for every mile ridden, according to IFAA’s website. When Pitman began the trek, he had already raised $760.

    The money raised will “set up some peer support groups and some programs to get them to be proactive rather than reactive in [first responders] dealings with their mental health issues,” he said.

    When asked about what will be going through his mind during his trip, Pitman joked, “How cold it’s going to be.”

    Pitman went on to say the people in his life motivated him to take on this journey, including friends, family, and his fellow colleagues suffering from PTSD.

    “I’m aiming to suffer with them on a daily basis, put myself through the hardships, metaphorically speaking,” Pitman said.

    As to what Pitman will take with him on the trip, he said he’s bringing a tent, a sleeping bag, extra clothing, food, and a lot of water.

    The trip is a self-supported tour, Pitman said. This means there won’t be additional crews helping him along the way or designated resupply points for the bicyclist.

    Pitman’s final stop is outside Surfer the Bar, a restaurant just off the state’s coast.

    He is expected to complete the journey on Jan. 31.

    Donations are accepted on IFAA’s website.

    A wrong-way driver was arrested after striking and killing a motorcyclist on State Route 76 in Bonsall during the early hours of Tuesday.

    A 25-year-old man was driving eastbound in a Lexus IS 300 in the westbound lanes of the freeway near Vía Monserate, just before 4 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol in Oceanside.

    He then struck a man riding a Suzuki motorcycle head on, traveling in the correct direction, officials said.

    The motorcyclist died at the scene, according to CHP.

    A third vehicle was hit with debris from the collision.

    The Lexus driver was taken to Palomar Medical Center with minor scratches, officers said.

    CHP determined the driver was impaired, citing alcohol may have been a factor, and then arrested him.

    Westbound lanes on SR-76 in the area experienced some closures until 7 a.m.

    The agency will continue to investigate.

    Anyone with information is asked to call CHP at (858) 637-3800.

    There are many fortuitous foods that you can consume as the new year begins.

    Particular legumes? So lucky, it is often said. Various fruits? Healthful and hope-filled for the future.

    A Dole Whip, like you might queue for in front of Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room on a toasty July afternoon?

    Any pineapple person and/or aficionado of icy-cold treats can testify that the Dole Whip is among the most golden of treats, for when you're enjoying one, you're probably savoring a great day at The Happiest Place on Earth.

    Now The Happiest Place on Earth has added another happy location to find Dole Whips, as well as a line-up of filling bao buns, chilled ramen shaker, coconut water, and a host of other sit-down and chow-down goodies.

    It's Disneyland Park's new The Tropical Hideaway, which may be found just steps away from the widely known, widely visited Dole Whip stand in front of the Tiki Room.

    The just-debuted marketplace is inside the former Aladdin's Oasis, though "inside" is a bit of a misnomer, as the casual hangout is open to the sky and nicely airy in feel.

    It is, after all, quite close to the Jungle Cruise, and Rosita, an animatronic cockatoo from the Tiki Room show, is on hand to lend the torchlit scene some birdly words.

    Winging it? Rosita doesn't have to; she charmingly chats up guest on the fly.

    As for your beloved Dole Whip? You can now find flavors beyond pineapple at the Tropical Hideaway, including orange and raspberry. 

    And, yep: Those flavors can be swirled alongside the classic pineapple. "Applause, applause" to that, as José, one of the feathery stars of the Tiki Room, might say.

    Where to see Rosita, enjoy a swirled Dole Whip, and linger into the evening in Adventureland? Why at the world-famous Anaheim theme park, of course.

    Dole Whips may not officially be on the advantageous foods list, as far as those eats you want to devour at the beginning of a new year.

    But Dole Whip devotees are legion, there's a fresh Disneyland place to find them, and probably, one day, they'll be considered one of the planet's most lucky confections, in addition to one of the most refreshing on a toasty July afternoon.

    Roughly 150 migrants attempted to climb over or crawl under the U.S.-Mexico border fence into California in a clash with U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents involving rocks and tear gas, the agency said.

    Agents first discovered a group of 45 migrants in San Diego Monday night due to CBP’s increased presence at the border, following the ongoing migrant caravan.

    The few dozen migrants were then turned back toward Mexico, CBP said.

    Shortly after, migrants began throwing rocks over the fence at CBP agents and officers, said authorities.

    Agents said several teenagers were put over the fence’s barbed wire in heavy jackets and blankets.

    CBP said small children were also being put over the fence, but the migrants were “having difficulty accomplishing the task in a safe manner.”

    The agency said it couldn’t assist the children attempting to cross the border because of the rocks being thrown at its officers.

    Agents deployed smoke, pepper spray, and tear gas to stop the rock throwers, according to CBP. These deployments were directed at the rock throwers and not at the migrants trying to cross the border in a separate area, the agency said.

    “No agents witnessed any of the migrants at the fence line, including children, experiencing effects of the chemical agents, which were targeted at the rock throwers further away,” CBP said.

    An Associated Press photographer witnessed at least three volleys of gas launched onto the Mexican side of the border near Tijuana’s beach early Tuesday.

    It affected the migrants, including women and children, as well as members of the press, according to AP.

    The gases eventually stopped the people from throwing rocks, and they fled.

    CBP said “most” of the migrants attempting to enter the U.S. returned to Mexico.

    The agency apprehended 25 migrants, including two teenagers, CBP said.

    Under CBP use of force policy, the incident will be reviewed by its Office of Professional Responsibility.

    It’s a New Year and with it comes more chances for scammers to try and steal your identity.

    To prevent that from happening NBC 7 Responds is here with some helpful tips on ways you can protect your privacy in 2019.

    First and most important, freeze your credit with the three major credit bureaus. It’s free...now since the Dodd-Frank bill was changed last May. Doing so will prevent anyone from opening new credit lines, including you. To freeze or unfreeze your accounts call or visit the three websites below:

     

    • Experian - 888-397-3742 - or do it online here.
    • TransUnion - 888-909-8872 - or click here. 
    • Equifax - 800-685-1111 - or visit their website

     

    Now, that’s that taken care get to bolstering the passwords for your accounts as well as the verification requirements for you to log onto your bank or credit card’s account.

    Let’s take care of the latter first. It’s one of those steps that so many people just click off, that being two-step verification on your bank and credit card accounts. Two-step verification requires you enter a PIN or code before you log onto the website. Doing so does add some time but as Eva Velasquez, president of the Identity Theft Resource Center, says, it can save you a month’s worth of headaches later on.

    “These robust security protections are in place. It’s up to you to use them,” says Velasquez.

    “Instead of going, ‘nine seconds, I’m never going to get that back,’ I want people to think about the protection that comes with it, and they won’t have to spend hours, days, months cleaning up an identity theft issue.”

    You can set up two-step verification on each account’s website.

    Last but not least, make each password count. Use unique passwords for each account that you have, whether they are your financial websites or not. This is because online scammers will target the easy sites first and then try them on the others.

    “Every account should have a unique password,” says Velasquez. “It’s ok if you need to write them down if you have to.”

    A man standing outside of his disabled vehicle on the shoulder of Interstate 805 in Sorrento Valley was hit by a car and suffered serious head injuries.

    A Sig Alert was issued for northbound lanes near Sorrento Valley Boulevard and the I-5 transition just after 3 p.m.

    CHP Investigators say the victim was standing on the driver side of his Nissan 350Z on the shoulder of the freeway when he and his car were hit by a Mercedes. The collision also caused two other cars to crash.

    No one else was injured, CHP officers said.

    Traffic was being rerouted to State Route 56. I-805 was reopened at around 5:15 p.m.

    A San Diego woman was stabbed in the early hours of New Year's Day, and her Talmadge area neighbors said that violent crime might have been prevented if city officials had responded to their requests for street light repairs.

    San Diego police said the victim walked outside her home on 50th Street, just north of El Cajon Boulevard, after hearing her dog bark.

    An unknown male assailant attacked her and stabbed her in the stomach.

    A witness told NBC 7 he found the woman sitting in her driveway, shaking from the cold, and bleeding from at least one stab wound. That witness said the stab wound on the woman's stomach appeared to be superficial.

    Police and paramedics responded and took the victim to Mercy hospital. She was treated for "non-life threatening" injuries and she is expected to fully recover.

    But neighbors are angry about the incident. They said their street is safe during the day, but the lack of working street lights makes it dangerous at night.

    "I've been followed down the street before at night, so I don't go out by myself," said Hannah Martin.

    Another resident, who declined to give his name, said he still walks to the store at night but doesn't feel as safe with the street lights not working.

    "That light being out makes it extremely dark, all the way down (the street), and that bothers me," he said.

    David Meminger, who lives in an apartment next door to the crime scene, said he has called San Diego City Hall at least twice in the past month to complain about the broken street lights.

    Meminger said two city crews have checked the lights and circuits but have not fixed the problem.

    "They said, 'Well, it's probably a fuse.' Well, that must be one hell of a big fuse, that they can't find one to put in there," Meminger said.

    He said he may call city officials again this week to demand repairs be done on the three broken street lights.

    "It's a big safety problem, especially in this area," Meminger said.

    While some of us were out ringing in the New Year, a San Diego woman was birthing the first baby born in the county in 2019.

    Minutes after we counted down to zero, at 12:04 a.m. to be exact, Elizabeth Morales brought her fourth little girl into the world at Scripps Mercy Hospital in Chula Vista. What made the birth even more exciting is that her record-setting delivery came two weeks ahead of schedule.

    The only thing on Morales’s mind Monday evening was what she was going to eat for dinner. After settling for lasagna, the mother of three experienced the telltale signs that number four was on the way.

    “My water broke at 3:30 p.m. and we got here at 4:30 p.m.,” Morales said from her hospital bed, with all 7 pounds and 14 ounces of her hours-old Ainhara Banos in her arms.

    Elizabeth Retts, Director of Maternal Child Health at Scripps Mercy, was almost as excited about Ainhara’s birth as Morales and her family.

    “ I was excited when I heard about it this morning, so I'm like, ‘Oh, I want to be there to congratulate them!” she said. “I've been doing this for over 30 years and I still get goose bumps every time a baby's born.”

    Morales said her little one cried for most of the morning and tuckered out just before and NBC 7 crew arrived to meet her.

    As for Ainhara's older sisters, there are mixed feelings.

    “They wanted a boy,” Morales said laughing. “They wanted a boy but the little one is so happy because she wanted a baby girl, she's waiting for her.”

    Morales said Ainhara is in good health and she’ll be able to take her home on Wednesday.

    An El Cajon man woke up on New Year's Day to find a bullet on his patio and a hole in his roof, and thinks the shot was fired recklessly during celebrations the night before.

    Tim Vaclavek said he heard several loud bangs while he laid in bed Monday night. Some sounded like fireworks but he was sure others were gunfire.

    When Vaclavek heard the sound of something hitting the tin roof on the cover over his back patio, he thought it could've been a rock or one of the many four-legged critters that roam his property.

    “We have raccoons, foxes, coyotes, so you never know what’s going to be banging around out here," Vaclavek said. He didn't think anything of it and eventually fell asleep.

    The next morning he walked outside and found a bullet on the ground. Then he looked up and saw the hole in his roof.

    “When I found the slug laying there, I thought who could be so stupid to fire a gun straight up into the air and not even worry about where it’s going to come down?" he said. "It’s just incredibly irresponsible to me. I don’t know how anybody can do that kind of stuff."

    Vaclavek said his neighborhood is very quiet, but he said he wasn't shocked that it happened because the bullet could have come from more than a mile away.

    Although the discovery is disturbing, Vaclavek said he won't be changing the way he goes about his life.

    “I’m not going to walk around with a helmet on or anything like that," he said.

    Firefighters are often celebrated for their courage and fearlessness in the face of danger, but a Santee Fire Department (SFD) captain was recognized Tuesday simply for his thoughtfulness.

    SFD shared the above picture of Captain Thompson vacuuming the hallway of a patient's home in a post on Facebook.

    The department told NBC 7 Thompson and his crew had to climb through the window of a home on New Year's Day to get to a patient who was suffering a medical emergency. 

    While trying to get into the home, the firefighters got a little bit of mud on their boots which was in turn tracked into the house.

    So after finishing up with the patient, Thompson made sure his crew left the home as clean as they found it.

    "When people come home from the hospital, the last thing they probably want to do is clean up a mess we created," a statement from the department said.

    Thanks, Captain.

    A woman hit by a suspected drunk driver on Christmas Eve is still fighting for her life, and her family is hoping her story will make people think twice about driving under the influence.

    Mildred Pabon, 42, is suffering from five cracked ribs on her left side, a broken pelvic bone, a broken lower spine, and multiple fractures from her knees down her legs. Her left leg will have to be amputated.

    She was hit by a suspected drunk driver the day before Christmas as she drove on Interstate 5 near the Coronado Bridge exit and her car was sent into a roll.

    Her niece, Natalia Colins, was one of the first people at the scene.

    “I noticed that her feet were coming out of the driver side window. So I then climbed into the car so that my aunt would know that she wasn't alone and we were there,” Colins said.

    Colins described her aunt as the “light of everyone's life,” and said she’s loving and selfless, and strong beyond measure.

    Her family says it’s hard enough to see someone you love suffer. But Pabon being the pillar of the family makes it even tougher.

    Now they’re sending out a message to anyone who might consider getting behind the wheel after drinking.

    “He didn't just do that to her,” Colins said. “And that' what I want people to know, because if you choose to drink and drive you are not only affecting the person that you hit, it is everyone connected to them.”

    The California Highway Patrol told NBC 7 the driver who hit Pabon is facing felony DUI charges. NBC 7 is working to confirm their identity.

    Pabon’s family said as soon as they are able to, they want to get involved with Moms Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and increase awareness and try to decrease the deadly mistake.

    Pabon’s family says she does not have health insurance and a GoFundMe Page has been set up to help her pay for her medical expenses.

    A popular Encinitas rail crossing will close for much of the month as crews work on multi-million-dollar improvements, the San Diego Association of Governments announced Monday.

    The Chesterfield Drive Rail Crossing will be closed from Jan. 2 through Jan. 23 to motorists.

    Rail services will continue as normal and the area will remain open for pedestrians and bicyclists.

    Chesterfield Drive, which crosses the train tracks in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, links Encinitas to U.S. Route 101. It’s used by 17,000 motorists every day, according to SANDAG.

    SANDAG said the construction will improve safety and efficiency in the area.

    The following renovations include:

    • Constructing a multi-use Class I bikeway and pedestrian path
    • Building new ADA accessible sidewalks and ramps
    • Installing new traffic signal and rail crossing equipment
    • Modernizing and enhancing crossing warning system
    • Improving rail crossing signals and gates
    • Adding improved safety signage
    • Grading and reconstructing travel lanes for a smoother transition across the railroad

    As part of Encinitas’ goal for a Quiet Zone for Cardiff-by-the-Sea, the upgrades will eliminate the need for passing trains to use their horns when approaching the crossing.

    The price of the project is estimated to be $6.2 million. Federal and local TransNet funds will cover these costs, SANDAG said.

    The following detour has been created in the meantime:

    • Northbound San Elijo Avenue and northbound Coast Highway 101 to D Street (large trucks to use Encinitas Boulevard)
    • Southbound San Elijo Avenue to Lomas Santa Fe Drive (via Manchester Avenue and Interstate 5 south) and southbound Coast Highway 101 to Lomas Santa Fe Drive in the City of Solana Beach

    Detour signs will be posted throughout the area.

    The construction is part of the San Elijo Lagoon Double Track Project, an Encinitas and Solana Beach collaborative effort to improve its railways and surrounding areas, according to the project’s website.

    The Smithsonian National Zoo's beloved live panda camera was turned off on Wednesday amid the ongoing partial government shutdown, NBC News reported

    The National Zoo stayed open during the first 11 days of the shutdown, which began on Dec. 22, by tapping into unused dollars from the previous year, but closed its doors to the public on Tuesday night. The camera was shut down by Wednesday morning. 

    The funding feud leaves giant panda bears Tian Tian, Mei Xiang, and Bei Bei — whose days spent tumbling in their enclosure and chomping on bamboo have been broadcast to tens of thousands of fans 24/7 for years — without an audience.

    "The Smithsonian's National Zoo is closed due to a federal government shutdown. The Zoo's live animal cams require federal resources, primarily staff, to run and broadcast. They are deemed non-essential and will not stream live until the federal government reopens," the zoo wrote online. "All the animals continue to be fed and cared for."

    A man is recovering after he fell and was impaled on the antlers of a deer sculpture at the base of a monument to George Washington in Philadelphia’s Eakins Oval.

    The unidentified 21-year-old man climbed the Eakins Oval statue along the 2600 block of Benjamin Franklin Parkway late Tuesday afternoon while trying to take pictures.

    The man then slipped and fell on the antlers of a deer sculpture, impaling the left side of his body.

    He was taken to Hahnemann Hospital where he was treated for a laceration. He is currently in stable condition.

    The Washington Monument features a statue of George Washington mounted on a horse atop a pedestal base adorned with allegorical figures. The lower level of the monument is surrounded by "flora and fauna" of the United States, according to the Association of Public Art.

    Editor's Note: NBC10 was initially told that the man was taking photos of the Mummers Parade when he fell. Police later said however they were unsure what the man was taking pictures of. The article has been updated.

    Allegations of child abuse and assault at a since-suspended Arizona shelter for migrant children have been referred to prosecutors for review, NBC News reported.

    The three incidents investigated by the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office took place over three days at the Hacienda del Sol facility in Youngtown, officials said in a statement. They were referred to the county attorney's office, which can bring criminal charges.

    Videos published by the Arizona Republic last week appear to show staff shoving and dragging children. The newspaper reported that the sheriff's office initially found that the "actions did not rise to the level of criminal charges."

    The sheriff's statement to NBC News on Monday did not address why the department reversed its stance on the actions.

    A representative of the company that owned the now-shuttered facility provided a statement from October that welcomed the decision to suspend operations there and said it was participating in an independent review.
