This happened at a home in the 300 block of East Carlton Avenue around 7:45 p.m. Monday. The boy and his sister were taken to Elkhart General Hospital with injuries that do not appear to be life threatening. The boyfriend of the children’s mother told WSBT that the girl was taken to a Fort Wayne hospital to make sure there was no damage to her artery.
