High Chair Recall and Other Items in the News

Bullying Turns Deadly: Eric Mohat, 17, killed himself last month soon after another student told him "Why don't you go home and shoot yourself? No one would miss you," according to a lawsuit filed by his parents. The parents say they are trying to raise awareness of the issue. The school says it takes bullying seriously and tries to prevent it.

Baby Mix-Up Leads to Toddler Swap: Two mothers in Russia recently learned that the babies that they've been raising for two years were not their own biologically.
