Authorities are investigating an incident in the Bronx in which two men were injured when they were hit by a shopping cart that had apparently been pushed off an upper floor of a parking garage outside a store.

It happened at about 05:30 p.m. Monday as the two men were walking near an entrance to a Home Depot store not far from Yankee Stadium. Police say a 30-year-old man is in stable condition and 52-year-old is in critical condition.

The incident is similar to a Harlem prank in which two 12-year-old boys pushed a shopping cart off a fourth-floor walkway critically injuring a woman.

The boys in that case have both pleaded guilty to assault in the October 30, 2011 episode.

The police are looking for at least two men involved.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit
