Two Women Injured in Dog Attack in Long Island

Two women were severely injured in a vicious dog attack in Long Island earlier this month. One of the victims was walking her small dog on a leash along the sidewalk when two larger dogs broke free from a home and attacked it. The smaller dog's owner tried to fend off the large animals and was bitten in the process. The victim suffered several lacerations and had a portion of her ear bitten clean off. Eyewitnesses report that she was simply "covered in blood."

False Arrest Case in New York City Results in $12 Million Settlement

A man who spent 25 years in prison after being falsely arrested in New York and convicted of a crime he didn't commit has won a $12 million settlement from the City of New York. Andre Hatchett, now 51-years old, was convicted of murder in 1991 and sentenced to a lengthy prison term. He and his lawyers argued at the time that he wasn't physically capable of committing the murder as he was recovering from severe injuries at the time the killing took place. Andre was wrongfully found guilty and sentenced.

A terrifying construction accident in New York City left one worker trapped under a small front-end loader at a jobsite in Queens late last month. The individual was working at the future home of a subway ventilation installation located on Northern Boulevard in Queens near the intersection of 46th Street when a piece of machinery (a Bobcat) fell on top of him. The victim was pinned underneath the machine and his fellow workers were unable to rescue him. A NYFD team of responders arrived within minutes and performed a difficult "high-angle" rescue requiring ropes, taking nearly a half an hour to safely remove the injured worker.
