SPRAGUE, Wash. -

A woman was transported to a Spokane hospital Wednesday by helicopter after being assaulted with a shovel in the town of Sprague. 

Sheriff Wade Magers told KHQ that last week the woman was a victim of a burglary. Deputies investigated her report, found her stuff and made an arrest. Sheriff Magers said about a week later the woman was hanging out and drinking with friends of the burglary suspect. At some point, they became upset with her for reporting the burglary to the Sheriff's Office and a fight ensued. 

Sheriff Magers said during the course of the fight, 59-year-old Jay Morgan grabbed a small shovel and hit the woman in the face. Sheriff Magers said there was "significant damage" and due to the loss of blood, medics called in Life Flight to transport her to Spokane. 

Morgan was arrested and booked into jail for 2nd Degree Assault.

    NASA debunks myths about the total solar eclipse

    SPOKANE, Wash. - As we all know, solar eclipses have been going on since the beginning of time. Naturally, some myths formed to make sense of some things that may have happened. But NASA wants to correct these misconceptions using science. The first myth is that "if you're pregnant, you shouldn't watch the eclipse because it could harm your baby." NASA says there's no truth to that. This is related to the idea that there is harmful radiation emitted during an eclipse.
