911 Call from Eric Goodman Incident Released

LAS VEGAS -- The city of Las Vegas has released the 911 call from the incident involving Las Vegas City Mayor Carolyn Goodman's son Eric Goodman.

Goodman was found unconscious in a bathroom at a park near West Charleston and the 215 beltway in December. Goodman had been jogging before he was found. The Goodman family said he suffered traumatic injuries.

In the 911 tapes, the man who called the incident into dispatchers is heard describing Goodman's condition. He told the dispatcher that Goodman's face is pink and that he had been vomiting in the bathroom.

He also said Goodman has blood on him, but he doesn't say there is much of it.

There is still no word on what caused Goodman's injuries. Originally, it was thought that he was the victim of an attack, but Metro Police say there is no evidence that he was attacked.

Goodman is an attorney and Las Vegas Justice of the Peace.

Around 1,000 School Students Could Face Rezoning

LAS VEGAS -- Around 1,000 Clark County school students could be rezoned to different schools to ease overcrowding.

Following several public meetings, the Attendance Zone Advisory Commission made its recommendations for the upcoming school year to the school board Tuesday. About a dozen schools will be impacted by the rezoning, but schools in Summerlin will remain with their current zoning, according to the recommendations.

Summerlin parents were relieved with the commission's recommendations, feeling they had won the battle to keep their kids from being rezoned. Other families did not feel so hopeful and showed up at the meeting to have their voices heard.

"I have come to terms with the reality that I don't live in a top priority area for funding a new school," parent Carolee Frost said.
