No. 2 - Authorities say a 1-year-old boy who was pulled from a lake in Dania Beach Tuesday was revived by a quick-acting neighbor and paramedics who performed CPR.

Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue officials said the child had been missing for several minutes before a neighbor found him in a lake in the 2800 block of Lagoon Drive. The boy was unconscious and not breathing when the neighbor found him, and the neighbor began to perform CPR.

No. 3 - The Cuban man who stowed away on a flight from Havana to Miami has been granted political asylum.

Yunier García Duarte, who worked as a baggage handler at José Martí International Airport, was found in the baggage cargo area of a Swift Airlines flight that landed at Miami International Airport back in August. Duarte said he feared for his life if the U.S. deported him back to Cuba.

No. 4 – President Donald Trump, back in his hometown of New York for the U.N. General Assembly, responded to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s announcement that the House was launching a formal impeachment inquiry against him – a move that increases the odds that he will become the third U.S. president to be impeached.

It was a step more than 2½ years in the making as the president himself said the move could help his electoral chances, but he reacted in the moment with a cascade of angry tweets that accused Democrats of engaging in "a witch hunt" and "presidential harassment."

No. 5 - A 22-year-old Florida man imprisoned for impersonating a doctor while he was a teenager and stealing from a patient has been freed from custody.

Malachi Love-Robinson, known as "Dr. Love," was released Monday, about 20 months into his 3.5-year sentence. He was given credit for time served before his sentencing. Authorities have said Love-Robinson illegally practiced medicine out of a West Palm Beach office and even treated an undercover officer.

No. 6 - After a quarter-century in hiding, the last ‘Cocaine Cowboy’ is now serving an 11-year prison sentence – thanks to a forensic artist with Miami-Dade Police who is credited with leading the U.S. Marshals to Gustavo Falcon.
