WTF-TV

This week's most pulse-pounding local news spot was WREG's story of a grandmother who risked everything to save her grandchild from the terrifying maw of a five-foot hole.

"It seems shallow, but there's much more to this hole than what meets the eye," a WREG reporter said of the five-foot hole.

The grandmother realized the five-foot hole was curved rather than straight and she'd have to go in a couple of feet "just to lay a finger" on her grandson.

"All I could say was 'Lord, take me and not my grandchild,'" she said.

Thankfully, the Lord took nobody — and neither did Memphis' deadly five-foot murder-hole.

Leading
