A 19-year-old girl is being hailed a hero for calling police to report her own mother's alleged abuse of her seven adopted siblings. Machelle Hobson, 48, was charged with two counts of child molestation, seven counts of abuse, five counts of unlawful imprisonment and five counts of neglect, authorities said. She was behind the hugely popular YouTube channel "Fantastic Adventures," a slightly corny depiction of the chaotic lives of seven kids. The channel, which had more than 800,000 subscribers, has been removed by YouTube.
