Medical waste washes up on East Atlantic Beach in Hempstead

Hempstead Town Supervisor Laura Gillen announced Saturday that medical waste that had washed up on the East Atlantic Beach shoreline Friday afternoon, which included hypodermic needles, has been contained. However, out of precaution, the beach will remain closed Saturday to clean up any more medical waste that may wash up with the tide. (Credit: Howard Schnapp)
