    The husband of a woman critically injured by a shopping cart tossed by youths from a fourth-floor walkway in Harlem says he'll use the tragedy to promote a good cause.     

    Michael Hedges said his family plans to create a foundation to try to help wayward inner city youth, reports the Daily News.     

    His wife, Marion Salmon Hedges, was walking with her 14-year-old son outside a Target store on Sunday when the cart fell on her head.
