New Orleans parade victim

New Orleans police are on the hunt for 3 gunmen who opened fire on a crowd of people at a Mother's Day parade in New Orleans on Sunday.

19 people were transported to local hospitals with non-life threatening injuries, according to a report on Reuters News website.

Among the wounded were ten men, seven women, and a girl and a boy both age 10. The victims were shot as they walked in a "2nd line" of about 300 people following behind the original parade participants.

Police who were working along the parade route observed three men running from the scene of the shooting. Spent shells were recovered from the scene, indicating the bullets were fired from two different guns.

From Reuters:

A police spokesman said on Monday the investigation was continuing. "There's nothing new to report," he said.

Two victims underwent surgery and the children were grazed but in good condition, police said on Sunday. It was unclear if the victims were marching or watching the parade.

Violent crime in New Orleans ranks above the national average in FBI surveys. A poll of residents in 2010 found crime to be their greatest concern.

      KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - East Tennessee Children's Hospital has treated so many babies born dependent on prescription drugs that the facility is now helping other medical centers around the country deal with the crisis.

      The hospital in Knoxville is on the front lines of the crisis of newborns suffering from dependence as a result of their mothers abusing prescription drugs while pregnant. As a result, it has developed protocols for treatment.

      The hospital has treated more than 500 babies since 2008 who are suffering from what is known as neonatal abstinence syndrome. It is now averaging almost one a day.

      Staff members say babies can suffer immensely when in withdrawal. They are often inconsolable and have nausea, vomiting and severe stomach cramps. The worst cases can have seizures.

      Oh yeah and on pain killers (antibiotics too) yall should steer clear as much as possible. There's always a leaf somewhere you can boil. I haven't found a tea for pain yet but, I know there are a few things that'll clean you out and have you on the toilet.. Antibiotics and pain killers are the most over prescribed drugs.
