Details are still vague, but cops were called to two deaths this morning.

It happened around 2 a.m. Cops and OISHA are investigating. merican Airlines issued a statement that said, ``Our thoughts are with the employee's family at this time,'' said a press release from American Airlines.

In a second case, a Metrobus hit a pedestrian on NE Second Avenue near 73rd Street. Second Avenue was closed down. Nothing is getting through. Miami-Dade police are handling the case. More news to follow.
