Grosse Pointe Shores public safety officers were called to a home on Fontana Lane late Monday for a choking infant. A two-week old baby was reported to be choking on a vitamin. The baby was transported to an area hospital, according to a report. Public Safety Director John Schulte said the baby was reported to be OK upon receiving reports from the responders.
Electrical lines down
Grosse Pointe Shores public safety officers guarded the backyard of a Willison Road home Feb. 18 after electrical lines were torn down by a tree branch. A tree trimming company was removing a tree in the backyard when the wind caught one of the recently cut branches and blew it into the electrical lines, taking them down. The lines were arcing in the yard and officers secured the area until DTE arrived to fix the wires, according to a report.
Grosse Pointe Shores public safety officers were also called to a home in the 50 block of North Edgewood Feb. 18 for what residents suspected was a natural gas leak. The residents told officers they were leaving the home to stay with relatives nearby and that DTE had been out to their house the day before for the same reason. They believed there was a gas leak to a line outside, which DTE officials shut off the day before. The odor was noticed outside the home by responding officers and the residents said they were leaving because of the strong odor in the house, according to a report.
Man found sleeping on bus
Grosse Pointe Shores officers escorted a 62-year-old Detroit man found sleeping in a bus near Lake Shore and Oxford to a police precinct Feb. 14. The man was reported missing by his family out of a Detroit precinct and he is in early stages of Alzheimer's. The man was aware of what was going on when officers approached him and took him to the other precinct. Officers tried to make contact with the man's family but were unable to talk to anyone, according to a report.
