The latest incident comes following almost half a dozen reports in Limerick since the schools returned in September. Sergeant Brian Broderick the Crime Prevention Officer at Henry Street Garda Station told the Limerick Post that at 4.30pm last Thursday, a Garda who was on patrol spotted a middle-aged man walking with a young teenage boy on O’Connell Street.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The man was carrying one of the schoolboy’s bags and the Garda approached and spoke to the man where he described the schoolboy as a ‘friend’ and that they had been friends for a number of months. He also stated that he sometimes walked the boy home from school.Gardai also spoke to the boy separately and he stated that the man had engaged in some “inappropriate conversation”.Sgt Broderick said that the Gardai on scene brought the boy home, unharmed, and spoke with his parents. However “the relationship and use of inappropriate conversation is a matter of concern and this incident is being investigated by the Gardaí from Henry Street.”Parents are being asked to maintain their vigilance and to “speak to their children about approaches from strangers and also that they give clear instructions to their children that approaches of this type are not appropriate and that it is important that they report these incidents immediately to their parents, teachers or to another responsible adult.”Gardaí should also be notified of any incident that either the child or their patents are concerned about.center_img Linkedin NewsLocal NewsParents warned after boy is followed in cityBy admin – November 14, 2012 493 Print WhatsApplast_img read more

7 dead as truck plows into motorcycles in New Hampshire

first_imgiStock(RANDOLPH, N.H.) — A pickup truck plowed into a group of motorcycles, killing seven people and injuring three more, in a horrific accident in northern New Hampshire on Friday.The accident took place in Randolph, New Hampshire, a few miles from Mount Washington, at about 6:30 p.m. when a Ford 2500 slammed into multiple motorcycles on Route 2, according to state police.It is unclear how many of the deaths were motorcycle riders as opposed to those in the truck.Two people injured in the accident were taken to Androscoggin Valley Hospital, while another was airlifted to Maine Medical Center in Portland.“It’s tragic. It’s tragic for those involved, tragic for the families, so we’re doing our job, we’re doing our work and our thoughts are with the people who were adversely affected by this,” New Hampshire State Police Capt. Chris Vetter said.Route 2 remained closed to all traffic in the area four hours after the crash, and state police said it would remain closed through the night.“The identities of the deceased are still being confirmed and that information will not be released until next of kin have been notified,” state police said in a press release.Photos from the scene of the accident showed a handful of smashed motorcycles strewn across the road and the pickup truck on fire.“I held his hand, and I tried to get him to — I’m like, ‘Squeeze my hand. Stay with me. You’re a strong guy. You’ve got this.’ Toward the end, when the ambulance got there, I could feel him losing strength,” eyewitness Travis Hood told Manchester, New Hampshire, ABC affiliate WMUR-TV.There had been 27 previous deaths on New Hampshire roads in 2019, according to state police.This is the second fatal accident in Randolph this year after someone died in a crash on Feb. 4.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
