It's a big day for Apple! The iPhone 5 hits store shelves in nine countries, including the U.S. and Canada. Apple's thinnest and fastest iPhone yet has already broken sales records. Preorders for the iPhone5 topped 2 million in just 24 hours, and analysts expect the company to sell between 5 and 8 million of the devices Friday alone. The difference between the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5? The new phone will have a larger, but thinner screen, a smaller port, faster chip, improved battery and better camera.  Excited people lined up outside the Legacy Village Apple store in the predawn hours so they could be one of the first to get their hands on the new phone when the store opened.

A break-in Thursday morning left a 10-year old boy face to face with an intruder. Ethan Becerra was in his home in Sylvania Township getting ready for school when an intruder entered the home. "I was scared, and I did not feel so good being in there, and having all the stuff with the guy. Because, he's a stranger, and I didn't know him," said Becerra. Ethan's parents were both at work, his sister and brother had left for school just moments earlier. The suspect came through an unlocked garage door.  "I did not say anything, he did not say anything, so I ran in my room and hid in the closet," said Becerra.  Ethan picked up the phone and called his dad and then police. A dispatcher stayed on the line with Becerra until police arrived. When police arrived the suspect was gone.  Mother Sarah Becerra said she is happy her son was safe.
