Two 12-year-old boys were in police custody after allegedly dropping a shopping cart four stories onto a New York City mother who was out buying Halloween candy for underprivileged children. Marion Salmon Hedges, a wealthy Manhattan real-estate agent, was struck in the head by the falling cart on Sunday while walking outside a Target store with her 14-year-old son in East Harlem, the New York Post reports. Gaurav Patel, a doctor who witnessed the incident, performed CPR on Hedges, who was later transported to Harlem Hospital where she remains in a medically-induced coma. "We heard a little boy just screaming," Patel's wife, Susan Mahoney, told the newspaper. "Guarav said she was [in cardiac arrest] for about a minute. He did chest compressions, and she became responsive." The two young suspects were telling jokes and laughing with each other after they were taken into custody, police sources told the newspaper. "They were just doing it for fun," one law enforcement source said of the alleged crime.

Please do not feed the animals.
He hit his own mom..
I’m guessing Amish again.
but but their such good boys, normally they just throw bricks
Prayers for this poor woman. A cardiac arrest on the scene and now in a coma? She is terribly ill. I will also say a prayer for her 14 year old son who witnessed this tragedy. I have the feeling he will remember it all his life. So sad.
Prayers up for Mrs Hedges and her family. May God grant them His Strength during this senseless trial and heal her in Christ’s name.
Prayers up for the boys who did this to her. May they realize their error and the pain of their separation from His way.
What a terrible tragedy...
Two 12-year-old boys dropped a shopping cart four stories onto a mother who was walking with her 14-year-old son.
Afterwards they laughed and joked about it.
Girls have done the same thing. But then I guess you’d like to cap young girls in the back of the head? Or is it a boys exclusive club?
Some kids are just plain evil, no doubt about it!
Throw them off the top of the same building
Don’t want to be mugged, raped or murdered in New York? Then stay out of Harlem or anywhere else with an inner-city feral population.
Of course. Model citizens....
I assume You’re meaning to say don’t point out the obvious that this was a racial hate crime?
In this particlar case, yes, it appears to be.
But that's not really relevant to this story.
Rabid animals should be eradicated immediately.
What a horrible, horrible thing. May God bless her and her family.
What does that have to do with this story?
