Convicted killer David Sweat was on the run for 23 days after an ellaborate escape where he and fellow inmate Richard Matt cut their way out of the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York. On Sunday afternoon, police say Sergeant Jay Cook with the New York State police was alone on a routine search patrol in the town of Constable when he spotted Sweat jogging down a road just a few miles from the Canadian border. (16:37:06 9999) ((Superintendent Joseph D'AMico/New York State Police "He recognized him to be David Sweat, and at that time Sweat turned and fled on foot with the seargant in pursuit. At some point running across the field, he realized that Sweat was gonna make it to a tree line and possibly could have dissappeared." 16:37:21)) Sergeant Cook fired two shots hitting Sweat in the torso, and an ambulance crew quickly arrived and tended to him before sending Sweat to the Alice Hyde Medical Center just a few miles away in Malone, New York.-- before being airlifted to a hospital in Albany where officials there say he was last listed in critical condition. Police say Sweat was unarmed. (16:38:01 9999) ((Superintendent Joseph D'Amico/New York State Police "I think that it was effective today being in the right area where Sweat was. I could only assume he was going for the border--that he was that close, and we couldnt' be happier that we were able to apprehend him and not lose him. It's been a long three weeks. " 16:38:14)) At the press conference police said that Sweat was in stable condition and would be taken to a trauma center to continue treatment for his wounds. Sweat's capture came only two days after inmate Richard Matt was shot and killed. With Sweat finally in custody, Governor Cuomo said it was a relief for all. (16:35:35 9999) ((Gov. Andrew Cuomo/D-New York "Everyone goes home safe, and the escapees have been dealt with. You couldn't have a better ending. We wish it didn't happen in the first place, but if you have to have it happen, this is the way you want it to end." 16:36:49)) (( Rose: "police says they are still investigating but they are already calling sgt cook a hero.

Families are also encouraged to engage in physical activities for at least an hour a day. There's been an increase in emergency room visits for children with food allergies in Illinois. Researchers found ER visits for children with severe reactions are up nearly 30-percent over the last five years. The biggest jump is among Hispanic children -- up 44 percent. And data on about 30-thousand kindergartners suggests preventive dental care from primary care doctors can improve oral health for children. Researchers found this was especially true in communities with little access to dentists. Those are some of the day's top health stories. Eboni Williams, CBS News, New York.

Convicted killer David Sweat was on the run for 23 days after an ellaborate escape where he and fellow inmate Richard Matt cut their way out of the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York. On Sunday afternoon, police say Sergeant Jay Cook with the New York State police was alone on a routine search patrol in the town of Constable when he spotted Sweat jogging down a road just a few miles from the Canadian border. (16:37:06 9999) ((Superintendent Joseph D'AMico/New York State Police "He recognized him to be David Sweat, and at that time Sweat turned and fled on foot with the seargant in pursuit. At some point running across the field, he realized that Sweat was gonna make it to a tree line and possibly could have dissappeared." 16:37:21)) Sergeant Cook fired two shots hitting Sweat in the torso, and an ambulance crew quickly arrived and tended to him before sending Sweat to the Alice Hyde Medical Center just a few miles away in Malone, New York.-- before being airlifted to a hospital in Albany where officials there say he was last listed in critical condition. Police say Sweat was unarmed. (16:38:01 9999) ((Superintendent Joseph D'Amico/New York State Police "I think that it was effective today being in the right area where Sweat was. I could only assume he was going for the border--that he was that close, and we couldnt' be happier that we were able to apprehend him and not lose him. It's been a long three weeks. " 16:38:14)) At the press conference police said that Sweat was in stable condition and would be taken to a trauma center to continue treatment for his wounds. Sweat's capture came only two days after inmate Richard Matt was shot and killed. With Sweat finally in custody, Governor Cuomo said it was a relief for all. (16:35:35 9999) ((Gov. Andrew Cuomo/D-New York "Everyone goes home safe, and the escapees have been dealt with. You couldn't have a better ending.
