NYC shopping cart victim says feels sorry for boys

NEW YORK (AP) – A woman who was seriously injured by a shopping cart hurled from a fourth-floor New York City mall last year says she feels sorry for the two boys who tossed it.

Marion Salmon Hedges says she has never heard an apology from the boys, but wishes them well. She’s speaking publicly for the first time since the October incident.

Hedges, who was in a coma, says she still has no vision in her left eye. She says she has a long way to go but that she’s taking one day at a time.

The boys are 12 and 13 years old. One was sentenced to at least six months in a therapeutic foster home. The other boy was sentenced to at least six months in a therapy-oriented boarding school.
