JERSEY CITY - A toddler injured during a shooting in Jersey City over the weekend was released from the hospital Monday.
The family of 18-month-old Mina Beshay called his recovery a miracle. The boy was struck by a bullet Saturday afternoon while sitting in his car seat. He was in his parents’ parked car when a bullet shattered the window.
Mina had to undergo surgery to remove a piece of bullet and glass from his face. Doctors said Monday that he was well enough to go home.
