NEW YORK (AP) - When Sandy left much of New York City in the dark, some residents were only hours old.
On Tuesday, the anniversary of the killer storm, babies filled a Manhattan hospital room during a celebration of their first birthdays.
Kenneth Hulett III weighed only 2 pounds when emergency medical workers rushed him out of a New York hospital intensive care unit. He was carried down stairs while hooked up to an oxygen tank.
His mother, Emily Blatt, says her faith carried her through. She was evacuated from her hospital room on an orange sled.
That day, more than 40 babies were safety moved from the hospital on Manhattan's East Side to other facilities.
On Tuesday, parents and hospital staff lighted candles on cupcakes and sang, "Happy birthday, dear babies."
Police have released a picture of the suspects connected to a series of car break-ins.
The break-ins happened in Kirkwood last Wednesday and the thieves targeted 14 cars. Police say some cars had been left unlocked, but in other cases the thieves smashed windows or broke locks on doors. The suspects stole electronics, cash, and credit cards--one of the cards was used to make three purchases at a Wal Mart in Jefferson County.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Kirkwood Police Department at (314) 984-6902.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A 42-year-old Springfield man is facing up to 40 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to participating in a scheme to sell thousands of counterfeit DVDs over the Internet.
Matthew Cerullo pleaded guilty Monday in federal court in Springfield to mail fraud, trafficking in counterfeit labels, trafficking in counterfeit goods and making false statements to federal agents.
Prosecutors say the federal probe began after a shipment of counterfeit DVDs from Hong Kong addressed to a UPS store in Missouri was seized at JFK Airport in New York.
Cerullo told investigators he had not received a seizure notice from Customs and Border Protection, and that he does not buy DVDs. Agents who later served a search warrant found four prior seizure notices in his desk and more than 22,000 DVDs.
