It was a wild week this week. From Donald Trump's reportedly tumultuous transition (he says the reports aren't true at all) to a viral video that made us all gasp out loud: Here are some of the stories you may have missed that are definitely worth a second look!

Spectacular supermoon

An extra-super supermoon arrived to light up our overnight skies on November 14th! It was the biggest so far in the 21st Century and we won't see another one like it until 2034. If you missed out, at least you can still browse these awesome viewer photos at our Facebook page.

Some Democrats seeing red

Some Democrats are not too happy about all the extra red on the 2016 Electoral College map. Key swing states throughout the Midwest flipped from "blue" (states that supported Democrats in recent presidential elections) to "red" (in support of Donald Trump) and gave Republicans the White House for the first time in eight years.

The big win for Trump came despite him losing to Hillary Clinton in the popular vote tally.  Now Retiring Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, who was an outspoken supporter of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election, is set to introduce a Senate bill that aims to end the Electoral College. (Don't expect this to go anywhere in a GOP-controlled Congress.)

What a save!

In a dramatic video that made every parent in the newsroom gasp, a little boy rushes in to save his brother from a bad fall off a changing table. Click to watch but be warned, it's pretty heart-stopping. The family hopes all parents will remember to keep an extra-close eye on their children!

Toys to avoid

While you're doing that holiday shopping, keep an eye out for some of the toys you should avoid.  World Against Toys Causing Harm, Inc. on Tuesday revealed their nominees for the “10 Worst Toys of 2016." The Toy Industry Association, a trade group representing toy makers and sellers, says the list is "full of false claims that needlessly frighten parents and caregivers."

Goodbye Robert!

We're sad to say that after nearly four decades with WHNT News 19, Robert Reeves will be retiring. Just like his father before him, Robert entertained Tennessee Valley news viewers with his great story telling, generous heart and in-depth knowledge of the community. He is a true gem and we will miss him!
