Baby’s remains missing
A Minnesota hospital said Friday that missing remains from a stillborn baby presumed to have been wrapped in linens at the hospital morgue likely was sent to a laundry service that discovered another stillborn’s remains earlier this week. Regions Hospital of St. Paul discovered that a set of remains for a stillborn at 19 weeks gestational age was missing after a set of remains for a stillborn at 22 weeks gestational age was found by workers Tuesday at a laundry service in Red Wing. The second set of remains is still unaccounted for. Hospital officials said they had not identified the employee who may have made the mistake, but the hospital is investigating and takes full responsibility.
Kids live in storage unit
Two children found living in a 5-by-10-foot unit at a storage facility in New Jersey had been staying there with their mother for about a month, authorities said Friday. Their mother, Sheena Johnson, 27, was arrested Thursday in Trenton on allegations that she slashed her ex-boyfriend’s tires. As part of routine questioning in arrests involving domestic violence, police asked Johnson if she had any dependents and if so, where they were staying. The woman told police she had two children, ages 5 and 10, and they were waiting for a bus with another person near a storage facility where she had rented a unit. The suspicious officer drove to the facility in nearby Ewing and demanded the locker be opened. When the officer opened the door, he found the children, along with a bare mattress, garbage bags filled with clothes, and other items.
Game played on building
A skyscraper-sized game of “Pong” got under way Friday night. Hundreds of people turned out to watch the classic Atari video game played on the facade of a mirrored, 29-story skyscraper. Hundreds of built-in LED lights embedded in the north face of the Cira Centre replicated the familiar paddles and ball with gamers controlling giant, table-mounted joysticks across the Schuylkill River from the building. Frank Lee, a Drexel University game-design professor behind the concept, was among the players.
