Air Force jets collide in flight
ANCHORAGE — An F-15 fighter jet crashed yesterday after colliding in flight with another military jet, which landed safely, military officials said. No one was seriously injured.
The pilot of the F-15C ejected safely and was taken to a military hospital, said Airman Jennifer Anton, a spokeswoman at Eielson Air Force Base near Fairbanks. The pilot did not have serious injuries, she said.
The other jet, an F-16C, landed safely, and that pilot was uninjured, she said.
It was not clear why the two jets collided at 11:23 a.m. during a training exercise about 90 miles east of Fairbanks in Alaska’s interior, Airman Anton said. A board of Air Force officers will investigate.
Malnourished boy’s mother arrested
WEST PALM BEACH — A 10-year-old boy who weighed just 35 pounds when he knocked on a neighbor’s door pleading for food was being treated yesterday for malnutrition, while his mother was held on child-neglect charges, police said.
The Port St. Lucie boy, whose name was not released, knocked on a neighbor’s door Saturday night pleading for food. The woman gave the boy a peanut-butter sandwich and juice, then called authorities.
The average weight for a 10-year-old boy is about 85 pounds, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
