we already know that smoking is hazardous to your health. but a new study found smokers who quit between 35 and 40 can erase most of that risk and quitting before the age of 35 erases an he entire decade of lost life expectancy. dr. keith joins us now. thanks so much for joining us. >> thank you for having me. >> how many years does smoking take off a person's life? >> smoking reduces one's life by approximately ten years. >> explain the damaging effects smoking has and how quitting can reverse or erase that damage. >> the damages are widespread and numerous and can effect almost any system of the body. the heart, the lungs, the vascular system. >> how all of a sudden if you quit can you erase that? >> the study that was published

yesterday found that the risk of dying from various causes is reduced significantly when one stops. and if one stopped smoking before the age of 35, they can regain almost those entire ten years that otherwise would have been lost. >> is tissue regenerating? how does the tissue become healthy again? >> the tissue doesn't actually regenerate. most of that benefit from the life expectancy is from a reduction in both heart and vascular disease. some of those changes can happen quickly when somebody stops smoking. the effects someone can see can linger longer. >> just yesterday a report came out that said more and more women are smoking and starting at a younger age upping their risk of death. do you think these results might prompt people to quit or make them think it's okay by the time they quit by the time they hit 40? >> i certainly hope so. and the study found yesterday if
5:18 pm
somebody stops smoking before the age of 40, they can reduce the excess risk of death by almost 90%. >> all right. very fascinating. dr. keith, thank you so much for coming in. >> thank you. >> get ready for this one. talk about a close call. the story here in russia. a baby survives a horrible car crash and the whole thing caught on camera. the driver of a small suv loses traction on an icy road and skids into the truck. launches a one year old girl. another truck barely misses her. the father scoops up the father. police faulted the dad for placing her by the back window and not the car seat. >> the real story here for us, the roads are slick. i was
5:19 pm
sliding around myself today and you've got to take it slow. >> the roads are starting to freeze over. >> absolutely. even where we've had shadows today and no sunshine, pretty much stayed frozen. because temperatures haven't gotten above freezing again. the roadways are incredibly cold. so keep it slow out there tonight. temperatures start dropping down around 20 degrees and some of the coatings on the road lose some of their effectiveness. just keep that in mind. here we go again. because more potential snow tomorrow afternoon, tomorrow evening for the afternoon and evening commute. and so it will be real slippery out there tomorrow afternoon. no advisory for us yet. but we are anticipating that winter weather advisory will be issued probably now later on this evening. 27 degrees now in town as we talked about earlier. the windchill factor is what is going to get you.
5:20 pm
we have a 16 degrees and feels like it's in the teens. increasing clouds overnight tonight. we won't have any snow tonight. and temperatures tomorrow will be right back up to around 30 degrees or so. and i think the next graphic -- no, that's not going to work. take it down. i didn't have the right graphic to show you the evening forecast. it's going to stay bitterly cold. more snow is coming. show you potential totals coming up. >> round 2 on the way. >> that's exactly right. >> thanks. see you soon. >> no matter what goes on, our daughter's dead. >> coming up, parents break their silence as lawyers hold meetings. >> plus an arrest is made after a young doctor is found dead in her burning home. wait until you hear who has been charged in the case.

5:30 pm
tracks. >> metro's general manager outlined for the board a plan that calls for consideration of new under ground metro tunnels in dc beneath 10th street northwest. and beneath m street northwest. those under ground lievens with new tracks would include a new tunnel under the potomic river. that opens the tant lysing possibility that georgetown could get a metro station. >> georgetown at one time had rail service. 100 years ago trollies ran here. and you can see remnants of tracks on some georgetown streets. >> the trollies went away in the 1950s and community leaders were cool to the idea of a metro stop when the system was being designed in the 1960s. attitudes may have changed. >> a metro rail station in georgetown? >> yeah, that would be good to help with the business and the community as well. >> i would like it very much.
5:31 pm
>> why? >> because it's hard to park in many places and getting the metro could take us to national gallery. all the smithsonian plus national press club. many of the places we go. >> dr. silverman's husband expressed concern over what would be years of torn up streets in georgetown if the traditional trench format is used for constructing the proposed new under ground rail lines. >> there are many other recommendations in this report including extending metro rail and to centerville and virginia. also calls for developing priority bus quarters as another way of moving people around in the future. we'll have a link to this full report in about an hour on our web site, >> john, what do you think? can we anticipate a fight from georgetown leaders on this? >> georgetown used to be bustling at night and not so much. the recent would love it.

5:34 pm
officer to testify that leopold had told them to do things that absolutely nothing to do with his protection. >> on a sunday in may 2010, sergeant timothy told the court he was working overtime at an event in quiet waters park. under normal circumstances, it would have been just him guarding john. but on this day the county executive wanted two officers providing security. testified the county executive told him his lover was going to be there. and he wanted the officers to keep her away from him. when asked if she was a security threat, he replied no. the supervising sergeant for the executive protection unit told the court he wanted off the deal because he was losing sleep and under stress. he said he would send complaints up the chain of command. in his words, there was never any remedy.
5:35 pm
prosecutors then called a state elections official who testified the campaign had a war chest of over $560,000 in the summer of 2010. apparently suggesting the county executive had plenty of money to hire his own campaign and didn't need the help of his officers assigned to protect him. officers introduced evidence showing officers asked to work overtime were guaranteed four hours pay. he is accused of fraudulently miss appropriating funds. since leopold waved his right to a jury trial, it will be decided by judge sweeny. >> the defense in this case aggressively questioned every one of the state's witnesses except one. a little while ago the county executive came out here. we tried to question him.
5:36 pm
he said he had no comment. i asked the defense if they were going to put him on the stand. they would be tip their hand. >> you paul, thank you. >> prince georges county police officer accused of assaulting a teenager learns his fate in court. >> the latest on the hoax that caused a lock down on a virginia college campus.

5:45 pm
time. but at the end of the day it's hard work. and we haven't been working hard enough and creating any good chances. we have to get back to work hard and every scores and goals off the rebounds and stuff. >> not the start you wanted to. what have you been able to pull out of the first two games? >> well, you got to be good on special teams. first two games winnipeg scored two the other night and tampa scored two or three the first game. we got to be able to shut them down and score a couple goals in the power play. and go from there. >> line changes coming in this one. what have you seen in him that gives you a little confidence coming into this game? >> i think it's starting good. i mean, he's a good player. and he can do a lot with a park and
5:46 pm
that's what we need. hopefully it goes. >> is there a message being sent in terms we need a spark in terms of shuffling the lines we need to do that? >> it's going to change a little in the beginning but i don't think it matters who you really play with. you got to work hard and do it together, everybody. that's what we're trying to do. >> we don't want panic to ensue. the caps need this one tonight and had success in recent years. they've won 6 straight against them last year. they never trailed. the puck drops tonight 7:00 and more coming up at 6:00. back to you. >> see you then. >> we're still more than two months away from opening day. but fans have something to get excited about. another president. this weekend they unveil which president joins the team on the field. the nats made the announcement via

5:48 pm
a little bit. tomorrow afternoon, tomorrow evening's commute will be compounded a little bit. there will be impact with the commute tomorrow afternoon tomorrow evening. 21 gaithersburg now. 25 for frederick. 26 at quantico. the winds are gusting 26 miles per hour here in town. that gives us a pretty cold windchill factor. 16 the feels like temperature. this is not a constant. it goes up and it goes down with the gusting of the wind. but just to kind of give you an idea of what it feels like out there for just about everybody. feels like it's in the teens. winchester and on the hour they measured 9 degrees in the single digits. breezy at 7:00. layer up if you have to be out and about this evening. if you don't, stay home and stay warm. a few clouds by 11:00. temperatures will be dropping quickly. and i think it will be a while before the clouds get in and start
5:49 pm
acting like a blanket. by 11:00 even though we're lower 20s here in town already could be in the teens out in the suburbs. more snow is coming. looks like it's going to be tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow evening. the set up now mainly clear skies. ignore these little specs of what you see with the white. we didn't have any snow. the wind is blowing here. i'm going to pull this out. these will start coming across later on this evening. and they'll be fairly thin and thickening up overnight tonight. that will put a lid on the low temperatures and keep them crashing overnight tonight. let's fly you back up to the north and west here. this little snow coming out of north dakota coming into minneapolis here and between minneapolis and international falls real cold up there. this is that next little clipper. it's going to bring us a chance for snow. and looks
5:50 pm
much like what we had overnight. it's real dry air. so you don't need much liquid to really fluff the snow up. so all around, most of maryland, most of northern virginia up into pennsylvania, it looks like we're going to see the potential for a fluffy one maybe in a few spots could get as much as three inches of snow. it's looking right now farther to the south. maybe one or two. it was a higher snow totals to the south. 21 tonight. no snow. just increasing clouds. teens out in the suburbs. winds will stay northwest at 10. tomorrow morning's commute no problem. watch for the slippery spots from the snow today. light snow by noon with cloudy skies to the west of the metro. slippery commute as that snow starts coming in early as 1 or 2:00 tomorrow. so seriously, let's be careful tomorrow in that afternoon and evening commute. you are going to see the salt
5:51 pm
trucks all over the place tomorrow afternoon. 34 on saturday. 37 on sunday. mostly clouds on monday . monday night could have a shower or snowflake depending how cold we are. and we're talking better 60 on wednesday. that's right nearly 60. >> nice little warmup. thanks, gary. >> brief too. >> i like your blower's idea. smart thing. >> why not? >> thanks, gary. all right. notre dame football player manti te'o admitted to katy couric is did perpetuate the lie of his girlfriend. he continued to talk about his so-called girlfriend even after he found out she wasn't real. >> this girl who i committed myself to died on september 12th. now i get a phone call on december 6th saying she's alive
5:52 pm
and then i'm going to be put on national tv two days later and ask me the same question. what would you do? >> the plot thickens. a woman named diane says she received an apology from the man she thinks was behind the hoax. she went to high school with him and manti te'o. her photo was used on media sites. manti te'o apparently had an awkward exchange with the man behind this hoax. harvey levin joins us live. this exchange was caught on camera right? >> yes. we put it up on the web site and on the show tonight as well. on our show. this happened i believe it was november 18th at usc after a game. actually sought manti te'o out found him and gave him this awkward hug. this hug tells a big story.
5:53 pm
you can see manti is tentative and keeps tapping him on the back asking him to unlock. and he wasn't. he was maintaining the hug. we know from people who were very close that he had developed this intense close emotional feelings toward manti. and that's one of the reasons that he did this. he was living in a fantasy land. he was living in a fantasy land and i will say this on the other side in terms of manti, to me the headline was when katie said are you gay, he was so nervous not that he is, i'm not suggesting he is. but says something about our society. it was almost like a scarlet letter saying no i'm not. he was so adamant about that. >> i saw you posted clips from the interview on
5:54 pm
bottom line here for us. do you believe manti has really come clean? >> i think manti te'o was a complete victim in this. i think he stupidly naovely believed that she was a real person. and i think that raniah who used his own voice to sound like a woman and pulled it off, he was living in a fantasy land and has had a lot of family pressure and i think it's a very sad situation all the way around. >> just an unbelievable story. more of this coming up tonight at 10:00 and you'll be covering it on tmz on tv. thanks. >> let's check in now with brian for a look at the news edge at 6:00. >> sandy hook advisory commission meets for the first time since the deadly school shooting. the newly released footage from the deadly hostage stand off. and hundreds of thousands of pro-life supporters
