Philanthropist and Prudential Elliman real estate broker Marion Hedges is in critical condition after a vicious prank by two Harlem teens, the Post reports. Ms. Hedges was buying Halloween candy at Target when the pair pushed a shopping cart off a four story ledge, knocking Ms. Hedges to the ground as her young son screamed.
A doctor who happened to be passing by gave Ms. Hedges CPR for a full minute before she became responsive. Rushed to the hospital, Ms. Hedges is currently in a medically induced coma.
Two twelve-year-old suspects, Jeovanni Rosario and Raymond Hernandez, were apprehended and reportedly showed little remorse. “The pint-sized perps were smiling, telling jokes and laughing with each other after they were taken into custody,” according to the Post. Earlier in the afternoon the kids had been dumping Slushees off the railing and onto the walkway below.
According to her Prudential Elliman bio, Ms. Hedges is a native of Manhattan and attended Spence in her early days before graduating from Barnard College. Her “Closed Transactions” page lists several Upper East Side addresses, primarily two and three bedroom properties.
