    The son of Robert F. Kennedy has been charged with harassment and endangering the welfare of a child for allegedly clashing with two nurses who tried to stop him from taking his 2-day-old baby boy from a Westchester maternity unit. Douglas Kennedy and his wife called the charges "absurd" and said the nurses were in the wrong. Jonathan Dienst reports.

    Hobart Indiana Firefighters made a dramatic rescue of two young boys over the weekend.

    The mother, who was found feet from her door, did not survive the blaze at 2260 Wayne Street.  She was identified as Jennifer Teel, 29, by her boyfriend and neighbors to the Northwest Indiana Times.

    Rescue workers gave both children, ages 2 and 3, CPR after removing them from the fire.

    The firefighters called their survival a "miracle" because the toddlers were exposed to such extreme heat.

    They said the fire likely started in the kitchen, but the official cause had not been determined.
