"You hate to see someone go, but you also hate to see them suffer through that kind of pain," said Gaylord Chapman, president of the South Side church where the boy's father is minister and where the family lives. The minister, Duane "Scott" Willis, and his wife, Janet, both 47, are the only survivors of the freak accident Tuesday morning on a Milwaukee expressway in which the family's 1994 Plymouth Voyager minivan exploded into flames after running over a large metal piece of road debris.

Likened to a modern-day “Partridge Family,” The Willis Clan wowed the judges on “America's Got Talent” last week, but it's the act's back story that transcends a television variety show. The 12-member band from Middle Tennessee got its big break Tuesday, nearly two decades after the members' grandparents suffered a tragedy so horrific it dominated headlines and political debates across Illinois for years.

Like other gadgets that confine babies, including walkers, exercise saucers and bouncy seats, the Bumbo Baby Seat is not popular among physical therapists. Bumbo's website says its product - which props up an infant in a sitting position before he may be physically ready to do it on his own - has developmental benefits and enhances posture.
