It was a flying frankfurter and not a foul ball that left a baseball fan with a black eye in Philadelphia.
Kathy McVay says she was at Monday night’s Phillies game when the team’s mascot, the Phillie Phanatic, rolled out his hot dog launcher. McVay was sitting near home plate and, she says, all of a sudden a hot dog wrapped in duct tape struck her in the face.
McVay says she is suffering from a shoulder injury, so she was unable to swat the hot dog away.
“I think it just came so fast. And it just hit me like that and I didn’t even realize it. The hot dog bounced off my face and into the other seat,” she said. “If it gives people a good laugh and if that makes somebody chuckle, then that’s fine.”
She left the game to get checked out at a hospital, and she says she has a small hematoma.
The parents of a little boy who pulled down a statue are being hit with a $132,000 bill, even though they claim the statue was a source of danger.
Security camera footage that has been widely seen shows Troy Goodman and another child playing in the public area of a suburban Kansas City community center.
When the boy steps on the statue’s base and tuoches it, the video shows, he then appears to try to stop it as the statue topples onto him.
His mother, Sarah Goodman, said it happened during a wedding reception and they later got a letter from an insurance company representing Overland Park, Kan., claiming they were liable for the damage. The letter said the chld was not being monitored closely enough.
Sarah Goodman also rebutted claims of negligence, saying that “My children are well supervised, but all people get distracted.”
A Chicago teenager who was shot on Monday morning reportedly had a white sheet placed over him by paramedics who mistakenly thought he was dead.
After about 20 minutes, they realized he was still alive and transported him to the hospital, reports said.
The 17-year-old, who was shot several times in the head, was thought to be the second victim in a shooting that also left five injured at a University Village neighborhood, according to ABC 7.
The station reported that the sheet covered the teenager for at least 15 minutes before witnesses on the scene informed officers that the boy was still alive, prompting Chicago Fire Department paramedics to perform CPR.
“They saw motion, movement underneath the sheet. Officers who were present notified paramedics, this man is still alive,” a Chicago police official told the station, while noting that the “prognosis is not good.”
He said paramedics thought the teenager was dead, and covered him with a sheet before moving on to another shooting victim.
The boy was rushed to a nearby hospital where he remains in very critical condition, the station reported.
The fire commissioner told the station that they’re “trying to piece everything together” to determine how the teenager could have been mistaken for dead.
Authorities suspect Monday’s shooting to be gang-related, and that the victims who survived their injuries are refusing to cooperate with the investigation, according to the station.

The 4-year-old boy seemed to be suspended from a balcony. An adult standing on a nearby balcony seemed powerless to help. Disaster seemed the only possible outcome.
Then, to the nimble rescue on the streets of Paris on Saturday evening, came a young man whom some French people have started to call the Spider-Man of the 18th, referring to the arrondissement of Paris where the episode unfolded.
With a combination of grit, agility and muscle, the man hauled himself hand over hand from one balcony to another, springing from one parapet to grasp the next one up. A crowd that had gathered before he began his daring exploit urged him ever upward, according to onlookers’ video that was shared widely on social media.
Finally, after scaling four balconies, the man reached the child and pulled him to safety. And suddenly, an act of individual courage and resourcefulness began to play into Europe’s fraught and polarized debate about outsiders, immigrants and refugees.
The man, identified as Mamoudou Gassama, 22, is a migrant from Mali, a troubled former French colony in northwest Africa, who journeyed through Burkina Faso, Niger and Libya before making the dangerous Mediterranean Sea crossing to Italy and arriving in France in September, without documentation.
On Monday, after his heroic rescue of the boy, he met with President Emmanuel Macron. Now, he will get the requisite documentation to live legally in France.
