Hurricane Sandy: 8 NYPD officers treated for hypothermia
Rescued cops from Coney Island’s flooded 60th precinct were rushed to the hospital Monday night with hypothermia.
The Brooklyn station house was evacuated after being surrounded by
water from Hurricane Sandy’s surge. Some officers were brought to
Maimonides Medical Center when their body temperatures dropped to
dangerously low levels.
“The Maimonides ER treated and released eight NYPD personnel for
hypothermia related to a flooding situation in Coney Island,” the
hospital confirmed to the Daily News.
A source who was being treated in the emergency room at the same time
says that one female cop was who was hypothermic was unconscious, and
that other officers feared she might die at one point.
Another had to be rescued from the basement screaming, according to the source.
