Crown Heights mom shocked at son's brush with classroom current

CROWN HEIGHTS - A Crown Heights mother wants answers after she says her son brushed against exposed wires at Middle School 390.

The 14-year-old boy says he bent down to pick up papers when he accidentally touched the wires and was shocked Wednesday. He was treated for burns and swelling, but will recover. The boy?s mother says she arrived at the school with a camera, but could not take pictures because the staff had already fixed the wiring.

The concerned parent says there are other classrooms with exposed wires, according to her child.
