Bronx, NY - 2 Seriously Injured By Falling Shopping Cart At Home Depot
Bronx, NY - Authorities are investigating an incident in the Bronx in which two men were injured when they were hit by a shopping cart that had apparently been pushed off an upper floor of a parking garage outside a store.
It happened at about 5:30 p.m. Monday as the two men were walking near an entrance to a Home Depot store not far from Yankee Stadium. Police say a 30-year-old man is in stable condition and 52-year-old is in critical condition.
The incident is similar to a Harlem prank in which two 12-year-old boys pushed a shopping cart off a fourth-floor walkway critically injuring a woman.
The boys have both pleaded guilty to assault in the Oct. 30 episode, which spurred reflection here and elsewhere about society’s handling of children.
