Is this a case of life imitating art?

Not to make light of a serious story, but the story of the attacks on ABC7's Cheryl Burton and others on State Street reminded us of a skit from HBO's The Chris Rock Show. Its amazing how something which was a really funny skit on a sketch comedy show became a real life nightmare for many on State Street.

As always the hope is that all of the victims recover from this attack.

At least six people, including WLS-Channel 7 anchor Cheryl Burton, were injured Wednesday evening when a man believed to be mentally ill struck them with his fist in the Loop, officials said.

Just after 7 p.m., police began receiving reports of people down at various locations downtown, police said.

The news anchor was on her dinner break when she was the "victim of a random attack," WLS assistant news director Janet Hundley said.
