Boy, police officer injured during Bacchus parade


NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans police say a 9-year-old boy was hospitalized in stable condition after being struck by a Mardi Gras float, and a police officer responding to the call suffered a broken leg when he slipped on revelers' beads.

Officer Garry Flot tells Times-Picayune the child was struck by a trailer that was an extension of a Bacchus float, suffering bruising to the abdomen.

Flot says the Bacchus parade was stopped for nearly 35 minutes Sunday night as the two were treated at the scene.
