 OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - Here’s a look back at some of the big stories on KMTV during the week of July 21.

1. OSHA says collapse caused by International Nutrition, company disagrees

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration says the collapse at International Nutrition was caused by overloaded storage bins on the building’s roof level.

OSHA proposed a $120,560 fine and issued multiple violations for the company.

International Nutrition issued a statement saying it disagreed with OSHA’s findings.

2. Quick thinking by neighbor leads police to thieves

“It didn't quite fit in our neighborhood, I guess you could say. And just the fact that they went to the front door and then went to the side door, that was you know, the clue,” said neighbor Heidi Flaming.

Flaming called police on four men who officials say tried to break into a home Wednesday.

Police were able to catch the would-be thieves and arrest them.

3. Police release mugshots for 3 suspects in Frank Sanders murder

Three people have been arrested in connection with the deadly shooting of Frank Sanders.

Police arrested Absalom Scott, Rico Larry and Jaquez Clifton.

They are all charged with first-degree murder and use of a weapon to commit a felony.

Their mugshots were released Friday after police said they were withheld for the ongoing investigation, which included lineups and interviews.

4. Woman willing to exchange a kidney to save her sister

A woman says she is not a donor match for her sister, who needs a kidney, but would be willing to donate to someone else who can help her sister.

Caprecia and Brandis are about 18 months apart in age.

Brandis has battled medical issues her entire life and now needs a new kidney.

Caprecia says she is the wrong blood type and hopes someone can help.

5. Hot weather

Twice this week, the National Weather Service issued Heat Advisories for the area.

Monday and Tuesday saw the heat index rise above 100 degrees, followed by another hot day on Friday.
