3-year-old boy survives scrape by NYC subway train

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Police say a 3-year-old boy has survived a scrape with a New York City subway train after falling on the station platform.

The toddler was injured Friday night when he fell at the East Broadway station while waiting for the F train with his mother after his prekindergarten class. The arriving train scraped his head as it pulled into the station.

The boy's father, Danny Moy, told the newspaper that the cut was deep enough that he could see his child's skull.

Moy says a bystander who was a doctor helped care for the boy until the ambulance arrived. The toddler received 10 stitches in his head at Bellevue Hospital.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons

    Monday, September 15 2014 10:28 PM EDT2014-09-16 02:28:27 GMT
    One of the most surprising findings in a report from the New York City public advocate is that city officials have virtually no authority over how nail salons are run. The city can't enforce standards like they do with restaurants, so it's clearly a case of beauty buyer beware. We get our nails done without thinking too much about it.

    A judge allowed a confession tape to be played in court in connection with the case of Etan Patz, who vanished in 1979. On the tape, Pedro Hernandez described how he killed Patz. But his lawyers say Hernandez falsely confessed and doesn't understand his rights. Before Hernandez's videotaped confession was played, Patz's mother quickly left the courtroom unable to watch the video.
