VIDEO: BALL DROPS IN OWOSSO...LITERALLY
Lit Ball Lowered to Ring in 2018 Breaks Loose and Slams Into Platform
Despite bone-chilling sub-zero temperatures, hundreds of people poured onto downtown Owosso streets to usher in the new year with a Times Square-style ball drop. The ball lowered in a seemingly usual fashion, but moments before midnight, seemed to get stuck. Then, less than a minute after the clock struck midnight and Auld Lang Syne began playing; fireworks illuminating the sky, somehow the ball broke free and fell, crashing into the platform below.
We're told by those with an up close look at the post-drop ball that it sustained damage. Fortunately, there appeared to be no injuries.
The incident was streamed live in a Facebook video on the Downtown Owosso page. See the moment it happened in the video below. It happens at around the 31 minute mark.

CORUNNA COUPLE ARRESTED IN CHILD ABUSE CASE OF 6 MONTH OLD TWINS
Parents Jailed Following 6+ Month Investigation Involving Abuse of Infants
Shiawassee County Sheriff's Office
In May 2017 the Shiawassee County Detective Bureau opened an investigation in a suspected child abuse case of 6 month old twin babies. Detectives responded to Hurley Medical Center at the request of the Corunna Police Department for the suspected case of child abuse.
Both infants had sustained multiple fractures and one of the infants had an acute broken femur, which detectives believe was caused by the parents of the infants while in their care.
