Last updated on Wednesday, September 28, 2011

(BEDFORD) - A special needs child who attends Englewood School is taking rabies shots after bats were found in his bedding.

The student has cerebral palsy and has a hospital bed at the school. Two bats were found in his blankets. Because the boy can't talk, his doctors at Riley Hospital for Children could not be certain he was not bitten or scratched. So his doctor recommend he take a series of rabies shots.

Bedford North Lawrence Superintendent Dennis Turner said maintenance crews have sealed opening where they believed the bats have entered the building. They also contacted a pest control business to remove the bats.
