TORONTO — An emergency alert warning of an unspecified “incident” at a Toronto-area nuclear power plant Sunday morning was mistakenly sent to people across Ontario during a training exercise, prompting an apology from the province’s solicitor general.
Phones in Ontario received emergency notifications alerting them to the supposed incident at the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station in Pickering, Ont. shortly before 7:30 a.m. Sunday.
Although the message was sent out to the entire province, as is customary with the Alert Ready system, it stated that the bulletin only applied to people living within 10 kilometres of the nuclear plant.
“An incident was reported at the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station. There has been NO abnormal release of radioactivity from the station and emergency staff are responding to the situation,” the notification read.
“People near the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station DO NOT need to take any protective actions at this time.”
SPRING VALLEY, Rockland County (WABC) — A loose pit bull attacked a 1-year-old boy and bit a good Samaritan trying to free the child in Rockland County Tuesday, according to police.
It happened around 4 p.m. on Hoyt Street in Spring Valley, where officers responded after receiving several 911 calls reporting a dog attack.
Authorities say the child’s coat was already in the grips of the pit bull’s jaws when several good Samaritans jumped in to try and physically remove the animal from the child.
The man began kicking the dog, and luckily, the thick winter jacket protected the child from being badly wounded.
After struggling with the dog, police say it then bit the 29-year-old man, causing significant injury to his arm.
