'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A Stanton Heights man and his two sons were sickened by carbon monoxide Monday night, Pittsburgh emergency dispatchers said.

Paramedics and firefighters were called around 8 p.m. to the home on Brintell Street for a report of a lethargic child, dispatchers said.

When they arrived, they found the man and the boys — ages 8 and 12 — in need of medical treatment, dispatchers said.

The three were taken to UPMC Presbyterian in Oakland. Gas company personnel were called to determine the source of the leak, dispatchers said.
