4-Year-Old Girl Falls From Second Floor Window In Woodhaven, Queens

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork)  — A 4-year-old girl fell from a second floor window Saturday afternoon in Woodhaven, Queens. As CBS2’s Brian Conybeare reports, it appears the girl was playing with other children inside a two-family house on 77th Street just before 3 p.m. when she somehow managed to fall out, dropping about 20 feet into an alleyway below. Witnesses say the 4-year-old was knocked unconscious and at one point received mouth-to-mouth from a man, identified by neighbors as her grandfather, Conybeare reported. The panic-stricken man was visibly upset as firefighters and EMTs came to their aid. The girl, whose name has not been released, was placed into an ambulance and taken to Jamaica University Medical Center, where police say she did regain consciousness. “I was actually in my living room and I overheard a gentleman crying and screaming, very distraught. So I came out to see what was going on, and I saw him holding his granddaughter,” neighbor Joseph Ray said. “It was my next-door neighbor, and she was unresponsive at the time, and he was attempting to give her CPR. And about five or six minutes later, EMS showed up and took her to the hospital.” Police detectives are investigating how this happened. CBS2 is told there were adults inside the home at the time. From outside the house, it does not appear there are any child safety bars on the window where the accident took place, Conybeare reported. The girl is undergoing surgery and is expected to survive.

Funeral Service Held For Man Killed In Racially Motivated Attack

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Mourners and politicians gathered at Mount Zion Baptist Church in Jamaica, Queens Saturday to remember a black man who was stabbed to death by a sword wielding alleged white supremacist in Midtown last month. Saturday’s funeral — with Mayor Bill de Blasio among the attendees — took place almost two weeks after Timothy Caughman’s fatal encounter with a Baltimore man who prosecutors say came to New York to kill a black person. The 66-year-old Caughman was at 9th Avenue and W. 36th Street when James Harris Jackson allegedly picked him out at random and drove a small sword through him. Caughman was able to stagger to a nearby police stationhouse before succumbing to his injuries. Jackson surrendered after seeing himself on the news following the attack. He walked into the Times Square police substation, telling officers, “I’m the person that you’re looking for.” He’s charged with first degree murder as an act of terrorism and second degree murder as a hate crime. His lawyer has said if the allegations hold up, he will need to address “obvious psychological issues.” Speaking from the pulpit Saturday, Mayor de Blasio said eight and a half million New Yorkers were assaulted on the day Caughman was brutally slain. “Don’t think for a moment it was an attack on one stray man,” the mayor said. “It was an attack on all of us.” According to Caughman’s Twitter page, he was an autograph collector and a music and movie lover who tweeted regularly about John Lennon and Chuck Berry.

Attorney Says Muhammad Ali’s Son Stopped Again At Airport; TSA Says They Only Confirmed His ID

WASHINGTON (CBSNewYork/AP) — Muhammad Ali’s son was stopped and questioned at an airport Friday for the second time in recent months, his attorney said. The attorney said Muhammad Ali Jr. was questioned at a Washington airport before he was allowed to board a flight home to Fort Lauderdale, after meeting with lawmakers to discuss a separate airport detention incident last month. On Friday, Attorney Chris Mancini says Ali Jr. was detained for 20 minutes as he attempted to board a JetBlue Airways flight. He spoke to Department of Homeland Security officials by telephone before he was allowed to board. A spokeswoman for JetBlue referred questions to DHS officials. The Transportation Security Administration said the agency confirmed the identity of Muhammad Ali’s son before he boarded a plane. TSA spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein said a call was made to confirm Ali Jr.’s identity when he arrived an at an airport check-in counter. She said he also was patted down because his jewelry set off a checkpoint scanner alarm. Farbstein says the TSA doesn’t have the authority to detain passengers. Ali Jr. believes he is being stopped because he’s a Muslim. On Feb. 7, Ali Jr. was returning from a Black History Month event in Jamaica with his mother, Khalilah Camacho Ali, when they were both pulled aside and separated from each other while going through the immigration checkpoint on at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, Mancini said at the time. A law enforcement official told CBS News that Ali Jr. was detained for 57 minutes in the Feb. 7 incident so that his identify and passport could be verified. The official declined to provide additional details but said he was not detained because he was Muslim or had an Arabic name. Ali Jr., 44, who confirmed his Muslim faith, was detained about two hours, despite telling officials that he’s Ali’s son and a native-born U.S. citizen, Mancini said. It was the first time Ali Jr. and his mother have ever been asked if they’re Muslim when re-entering the United States, he said. “From the way they were treated, from what was said to them, they can come up with no other rational explanation except they fell into a profiling program run by customs, which is designed to obtain information from anyone who says they’re a Muslim,” Mancini said in a phone interview last month. “It’s quite clear that what triggered his detention was his Arabic name and his religion.” During his detention, Ali Jr. was asked repeatedly about his lineage and his name, “as if that was a pre-programmed question that was part of a profile,” Mancini said. Ali Jr. and his mother have been frequent global travelers. The family connects their treatment to President Donald Trump’s efforts to restrict immigration after calling during his campaign for a ban on Muslims entering the U.S. (© Copyright 2017 CBS Broadcasting Inc.

Oprah 2020? Oprah Winfrey Says Donald Trump’s Victory Has Her Thinking Of Running For President

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Oprah Winfrey said in an interview released Wednesday that President Donald Trump ‘s victory has her rethinking whether she could be elected to the White House. Winfrey, a Hillary Clinton supporter, spoke with financier David Rubenstein in December for an interview for his Bloomberg Television show, which premiered this week . Winfrey says before Trump’s election she thought that she didn’t have the necessary government experience to run the country but now she thinks differently. The billionaire businessman had never before held public office before his election victory in November. “I thought, ‘Oh gee, I don’t have the experience,” Winfrey said. “I don’t know enough. And now I’m thinking, ‘Oh? Oh!’” Winfrey also touched on her 25 years hosting a syndicated talk show. She says her ultimate purpose of the show was to let people know that “we really are more alike than we are different.” As CBS2’s Jessica Moore reported, Winfrey has broken the glass ceiling before. At the age of 19 while a sophomore in college, Winfrey became the first African-American female news anchor at WTVF-TV in Nashville. From Long Island to Manhattan, CBS2 asked New Yorkers what they thought. “It’s not as easy a job as you’d think,” said Jimmy Guzman of Hicksville, Long Island. “You can’t just — it’s not ‘The Apprentice’ or ‘Who Wants to be the President?’” “I mean she’s successful and smart and I like her values, but really, I think we need a president who actually knows how to run a country,” said Nancy Donner of the Upper West Side. “I think it’s a good idea, because Oprah is loved by everybody,” said Benny Clinkscales of Jamaica, Queens. “If she goes for president, if she competes with Michelle, Michelle would take the seat,” said Ania Cabrera of Morningside Heights. “It’s a good idea,” said Darryl Silbels of Gramercy Park. “Anybody who can make a change in this here world, man, I think they should run for president.” “Love her, love her, love her — but president? I’m not sure,” said Trish Sullivan of East Williston, Long Island. “In terms of dealing with the politics, which you can have all the ideas you want, but if you can’t deal with the machine works, then I don’t know how successful you can be,” said Nellesa of Central Harlem. “But I would wish her luck.” In the meantime, Winfrey will be spending her time with CBS at “60 Minutes,” where she signs on as a special contributor this fall.

Border Agents Ask Muhammad Ali’s Son: ‘Are You Muslim?’

FT. LAUDERDALE (AP) — Muhammad Ali’s son, who bears the boxing great’s name, was detained by immigration officials at a Florida airport and questioned about his ancestry and religion in what amounted to unconstitutional profiling, a family friend said Saturday. Returning from a Black History Month event in Jamaica, Muhammad Ali Jr. and his mother, Khalilah Camacho Ali, were pulled aside and separated from each other on Feb. 7 at the immigration checkpoint at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, said Chris Mancini, a family friend and attorney. Camacho Ali was released a short time later after showing a photo of herself with her ex-husband, the former heavyweight boxing champion, Mancini said. But Ali Jr. was not carrying a photo of his world-famous father — a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Ali Jr., 44, who confirmed his Muslim faith, was detained about two hours, despite telling officials that he’s Ali’s son and a native-born U.S. citizen, Mancini said. It was the first time Ali Jr. and his mother have ever been asked if they’re Muslim when re-entering the United States, he said. “From the way they were treated, from what was said to them, they can come up with no other rational explanation except they fell into a profiling program run by customs, which is designed to obtain information from anyone who says they’re a Muslim,” Mancini said in a phone interview. “It’s quite clear that what triggered his detention was his Arabic name and his religion.” U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Daniel Hetlage confirmed Saturday evening that Ali Jr. was held for questioning by customs officers, but said “it wasn’t because he’s a Muslim and it wasn’t because of his Arabic-sounding name.” The agency said in a statement that its officers process more than 1.2 million international travelers daily with “vigilance and in accordance with the law.” It said it does not discriminate based on religion, race, ethnicity or sexual orientation. “We treat all travelers with respect and sensitivity,” the agency said. “Integrity is our cornerstone. We are guided by the highest ethical and moral principles.” During his detention, Ali Jr. was asked repeatedly about his lineage and his name, “as if that was a pre-programmed question that was part of a profile,” Mancini said. Ali Jr. and his mother have been frequent global travelers. The family connects their treatment to President Donald Trump’s efforts to restrict immigration after calling during his campaign for a ban on Muslims entering the U.S. “This has never happened to them before,” Mancini said. “They’re asked specifically about their Arabic names. Where they got their names from and whether they’re Muslims. It doesn’t take much to connect those dots to what Trump is doing.” Camacho Ali and Ali Jr. live in Florida. They have not traveled abroad since, and are considering filing a federal lawsuit, he said. Asked why the matter was just now coming to light, Mancini said: “Khalilah had prior commitments as did I and when she finally got in to see me for a legal opinion of what they did, I brought it to the media immediately.” Ali, the three-time heavyweight champion and humanitarian, died last June at age 74 after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease. People lined the streets of Louisville, Kentucky, to say goodbye to the city’s most celebrated son before a star-studded memorial service watched worldwide. Read More »
