Police are investigating after a shooting victim showed up at Children’s Hospital Wednesday evening in need of medical attention.
After being accused of trying to smother her infant son on 15 occasions including once at Pittsburgh’s Children’s Hospital, Rachel Nelson pleaded guilty to endangering the welfare of a child and aggravated assault.
A junior firefighter was critically injured after he was hit by a car while trying to cross the road to help on an emergency call.
For the second time in as many weeks, Shawn Nelson drove the 270 miles from Boone County, W. Va. to Pittsburgh with his now 5-month-old son Eli in his arms, hoping to hear a legal decision involving his wife Rachel, only to go back home with no such result.
Shawn Nelson says there’s only one thing he wants for Thanksgiving, “and I’ve got it right here.” He traveled to Pittsburgh from Boone County, W. Va., holding his baby – who was the subject of a criminal prosecution of his wife Rachel Nelson.
