Student claims she was stabbed with needle at her Fordham school
A 7-year-old Bronx girl says one of her classmates stabbed her in the back with a hypodermic needle. The incident happened Monday at P.S. 85 in Fordham. Angelette Hunter Taylor says a boy stabbed her in the back with a needle during art class. The Bronx girl says she tried to tell her teacher what happened but was told to sit down and be quiet. The Department of Education (DOE) said a school nurse treated the girl and her parents were notified. The girl's mother says her daughter has to be tested for HIV, hepatitis and other diseases. DOE officials say they are investigating the situation.
