LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Imagine driving and then all of a sudden everything fading to black. This happened to one 20-year-old woman Tuesday night in Little Rock, and a police officer is responsible for pumping life back into her.

This officer said she was on a call for a private property accident that night. She said because of her job before becoming an officer mixed with training at the department, she was able to act quickly to save a life.

"She had started going in and out," said Chelsea Burns.

Chelsea Burns remembers Tuesday night. But her friend, Reyonda Smith, on the other hand, does not remember much.

"I felt myself getting hot, and I started blacking out," said Smith.

Smith started to feel like she was going to pass out while she was driving to her grandmother's house.

"She stopped the car, and I got out," said Burns.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - All the bells and whistles are getting pulled out for the 75th anniversary of the Arkansas State Fair.

Especially when it comes to food, the options are getting weirder and wackier.

New foods include spaghetti and meatballs on a stick, or try a fried avocado with a meatball center.

Looking forward to something with more sweet? Try fried peaches and creme or a fried s'more with a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.

The fair's general manager said this will be the biggest fair yet.

"We put a little extra pizazz into our state entertainment is bigger this year. The carnival is bigger this year, going on through the week, and then the final night, after our final stage show, we are doing an outstanding aerial fireworks show," said Ralph Shoptaw, general manager.
