PHILADELPHIA | A video snippet from a Philadelphia Phillies broadcast shows a little boy in the stands appearing to take a swig from a beer bottle, creating a fresh headache for a ballclub whose fans have been drawing almost as much attention as its players.
The fuzzy video, which began making the rounds online and on TV on Monday, shows the child, who appears to be about 4, putting the bottle to his lips at Sunday’s Phillies-Padres game at Citizens Bank Park.
No adults nearby appear to be paying attention to him when he does. It’s not clear whether the bottle has anything in it, but the boy is seen easily hoisting it to his mouth with one hand, suggesting it could have been empty.
Mexico: U.S. border agent killed teen
EL PASO | A U.S. Border Patrol agent fatally shot a 14-year-old boy after a confrontation at an international bridge near downtown El Paso, Mexican authorities said Tuesday.
Agents detaining suspected illegal immigrants Monday came under assault from rock throwers across the border in Mexico, FBI spokeswoman Andrea Simmons said.
The FBI is leading the investigation because it involved an assault on a federal officer. The agent was not injured, she said.
Chihuahua state officials released a statement Tuesday demanding a full investigation into the death of the boy, identified as Sergio Adrian Hernandez Huereca.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Doug Mosier said preliminary reports indicated one person was shot Monday evening on the U.S. side of the Paso Del Norte bridge, across from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.
