Toddler’s death at Staples Center probed
LOS ANGELES | A police investigation was under way Monday in the death of a toddler who plunged from a third-level luxury box at Staples Center after a Los Angeles Lakers basketball game.
The fall occurred Sunday as 2-year-old Lucas Anthony Tang was taking pictures with his family in a skybox with a glass safety barrier that varies in height but is at least several feet high, police Officer Julie Sohn said.
“Somehow the child went over the edge of the section and fell to the seating below,” Officer Sohn said.
Fire officials said boy fell 25 to 50 feet.
Deal approved for offshore wind power
BOSTON | Massachusetts regulators have approved a power-purchase deal between the nation’s first offshore wind farm and its first customer.
The Department of Public Utilities on Monday approved a pact between the utility National Grid and Cape Wind, a 130-turbine wind farm planned for Nantucket Sound.
National Grid agreed to buy half the power generated by Cape Wind, and the department was charged with deciding if it was a good deal for ratepayers.
National Grid agreed to a starting price of 18.7 cents per kilowatt hour, about twice what it pays for power from conventional sources.
Critics argued the price was too high. But National Grid said the wind power was needed to meet renewable energy requirements.
Supporters say the deal will save ratepayers money in the long term.
