Kids checked after syringes found at preschool
ALBUQUERQUE — Children at a city-run preschool program in Albuquerque were examined by doctors after teachers learned they had pricked themselves with hypodermic needles that were mistakenly donated to their classroom.
Officials say two syringes were in a box containing a stethoscope, medical gloves and other medical supplies intended to be used by the kids to play doctor. At least four children were pricked by the needles Tuesday.
The city’s chief administrative officer, Rob Perry, says the syringes are being tested by state health officials, but it appears they were empty. He says officials don’t know how the syringes ended up in the box.
Mr. Perry says teachers learned of the incident at the Governor Bent Pre-Kindergarten Center when the children complained about puncture wounds Wednesday morning, and letters are being sent to parents. The children are all about 5 years old.
Police: Boy possibly tied up before killed
NEW YORK — Investigators think an 8-year-old Brooklyn boy who was abducted and dismembered may have been tied up and tried to fight off his alleged captor before he was killed, police officials said Thursday.
At a news conference, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said the man charged in the killing, Levi Aron, had scratches on his arms and wrists - a sign “there was some kind of struggle.” There also were marks on the victim’s remains that could have been caused by restraints, the commissioner added.
