Son's Warning Helps Family Escape Danger
Local resident Barbara Hammershoy woke up early on the morning of Jan. 21 to an annoying headache and the smell of fumes. Both she, a math teacher in the Levittown School District and her son, a student at East Broadway, had the day off and when she attempted to go back to bed after her husband left for work, her son Adam decided to join her.
