LA Times Today: Santa Susana nuclear meltdown

Watch L.A. Times Today at 7 p.m. on Spectrum News 1 on Channel 1 or live stream on the Spectrum News App. Palos Verdes Peninsula and Orange County viewers can watch on Cox Systems on channel 99.

A brief look of a new documentary called, “In the Dark of the Valley,” about the Santa Susana Field Laboratory located just south of Simi Valley and the site of a nuclear meltdown in 1959.

One of the subjects of the film is Melissa Bumstead, whose daughter Grace Ellen was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of leukemia at age four. She joined me to share her story.
