Two tanks of nitrous oxide, the so-called laughing gas linked to the accidental deaths of three young men last week in Chatsworth, were stolen a month earlier from Holy Cross Medical Center, where one of the victims formerly worked, police said Tuesday. The two 80-pound tanks found with the victims Friday did not carry individual serial numbers but by asking area hospitals to inventory their cylinders, police were able to determine that the tanks were the two stolen Feb.

As nervous passengers resumed riding Metrolink on Tuesday, family and friends mourned the death of a movie studio truck driver who was killed in a fiery Burbank crash that derailed a four-car commuter train and injured 34 people. Jacek "Jack" Wysocki, 63, of Van Nuys was on his way Monday morning to a freelance movie job when he steered his rented stake-bed truck past guardrails onto the train tracks as warning lights flashed, officials and witnesses said.

"Who cares about diabetic feet? It has no sizzle." Over the last 15 years, the U.S. rate of foot amputations from complications of diabetes has soared, approaching 100,000 annually, according to studies and government statistics.
