Photography: Child Lead Poisoning: MAST_LEAD_09

Two-year-old Mark Jordan waits for the return of his siblings, who are treated at Hasbro Children's Hospital for lead poisoning. Jordan plays in the alley outside their apartment, which is believed to be the source of the lead paint contamination. Paint chips will settle in the dirt after years of chipping away, and then make their way into the children's system when they put their hands in their mouths.
