  Sick child treated after migrant bus arrives in Philadelphia PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A bus carrying 28 migrants from Texas arrived in Philadelphia on Wednesday, including a 10-year-old girl suffering from dehydration and a high fever who was whisked to a hospital for treatment. Advocates who welcomed them as they arrived before dawn said the families and individuals came from Colombia, the Dominican Republic and Cuba.

Greg Abbott arrive near 30th Street Station Wednesday morning, Nov. 16, 2022, in Philadelphia.

Two people were slashed at Manhattan's Union Square subway station in the latest attack on the city's transit system, where crime has soared 41 percent since last year.

Police said an unidentified suspect cut a woman, 28, in the face and slashed a man, 29, repeatedly in the head after he rushed to help her by the L-train platform on Tuesday night at 10:30pm, ABC reports.

The suspect then fled the bloody scene. No arrests have yet been made yet.

The victims were taken to the Bellevue Hospital and were reported to be in stable condition.

The slashings come after two people were struck by trains within hours of each other on Sunday, with tensions rising as violent crime rises in the Big Apple.

Cody Bellinger could land with AL playoff team?

  Cody Bellinger could land with AL playoff team? Bellinger was the NL MVP in 2019 and helped the Dodgers win the World Series in 2020. But ever since then, Bellinger has been a total lemon.Jon Morosi of MLB Network reported Thursday that the Toronto Blue Jays are a team to watch for Bellinger if he is non-tendered by the Los Angeles Dodgers. Morosi adds that Toronto would like to add a left-handed bat to its outfield this offseason.

Police report that the suspect of Tuesday's slashing appeared to be homeless, described as 6'5" tall and wearing all black.

Officials said it wasn't immediately clear if the attack was random or if it was caused by a dispute.

Boston Red Sox have ‘made offers to several players’: Five ideal options in MLB free agency

  Boston Red Sox have ‘made offers to several players’: Five ideal options in MLB free agency Boston Red Sox president and CEO Sam Kennedy claimed this week the team has been aggressive this offseason and made some recent offers to players. The question is, which free agents did some of those offers go to? Here are five possible targets for free agency.With the 2022 MLB World Series in the rearview and the winter meetings on the horizon, the focus of the baseball world is on MLB free agency. Organizations around the league are making major decisions on what their winter strategy will be regarding players they want to keep, stars they may want to add, and what areas they can improve ahead of 2023.

Just half-an-hour prior to the attack, the NYPD reported that another man had been stabbed at the nearby Herald Square platform.

In that incident, police said two men got into a fight on the train, with one stabbing the other in the abdomen.

Police believe the two stabbing incidents are not related. No arrest has been made for the second attack, either.

Transit crime and subway incidents have skyrocketed this year, with the NYPD reporting 1,865 cases so far this year, up more than 41 percent from the same time in 2021.

The number of homeless men prowling subway stations has increased dramatically since before the COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite a plan outlined by Mayor Eric Adams to deter homeless people from sheltering in the city's subway system, the issue has not visibly been mitigated and travelers continue to be harassed and made uncomfortable during their daily commutes.

In January, Adams introduced his 'subway safety plan,' which put more than 1,000 extra cops per day in the city's subways. Adams is himself a former police captain.

The city again moved to bolster police presence throughout its transit system as violent crime continues to spike.
