SUN-TIMES MEDIA WIRE - A man was charged with dropping two toy poodles Saturday from the fifth floor of a tower at Advocate Christ Medical Center in southwest suburban Oak Lawn.

Edward Hanania, a 22-year-old Oak Lawn resident, was charged with two counts of aggravated animal cruelty, according to the Cook County state’s attorney’s office. He is scheduled to appear in bond court tomorrow in southwest suburban Bridgeview.

Officers responded just after noon to a call of two injured dogs in the parking tower between Towers B and C at the hospital at 4440 W. 95th St., according to Oak Lawn police.

Both white toy poodles were dropped from the top floor of Tower C, which is five stories tall, police said.

The dogs were taken to the Animal Welfare League in Chicago Ridge, where one died. The other is being treated for its injuries.  When interviewed about this incident Sheriff Tom Dart said there is a special place in his jail for people that are cruel to dogs and puppies.
