Pinned to the storefront


An elderly man was killed Tuesday when a car jumped a curb on Long Island.he incident happened in Lawrence, where Nassau County police say the car jumped the curb, struck a pedestrian and crashed into a storefront along Central Avenue.

It's a tragic story. The driver of a black SUV, which is a rental car, was trying to get into a parking space. But because she was unfamiliar with the vehicle, police say she hit the accelerator instead of the brake.

While she was in reverse, the car backed into a real estate agency located at 315 Central Avenue. But before it hit the office, it struck a 69-year-old man on the sidewalk, driving him into the business as well.

Before the paramedics reached the scene, a woman walking down the street tried to give the victim first aid.

"He was pinned to the storefront, he lost a lot of blood," she said. "People who worked in the office ran and got towels. I tried to control the bleeding. He was conscious. He gave me his first name. A woman came over a bit later on and said, 'I hope that's not my husband.' It was."

The man later died in an ambulance on the way to the hospital. The woman who was driving also had her pregnant daughter in the car. She has been taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons.

This is a catch 22 situation or / and damned if you do, damned if you don't.

I am almost certain that if Ms.Rennix was related to Mr. Green or to Ms. Jackson, they would ignore the FDNY-EMT stringent rules that were put in place for good reason.
Mr. Green and Ms. Jackson probably were following the FDNY-EMT strict guidelines.

Active Federal Lawsuit against EMS FDNY regarding the way EVOC class was being run circa 2005 until Lieut retired – these classes caused more failures with women and aggressive terminations after people were already on the street. We believe that the class was run in an arbitrary and capricious manner and as such impacted on men also. If you or anyone you know was affected; if you have any information anonymous (confidentiality will be respected) or if you wish to give an affidavit or seek justice for yourself, please contact Jane99@NYC.rr.com. Thanks & Happy New Year!
