Power out at NYC hospital; 200 patients evacuated

Published: 10.30.12, 07:27 / Israel News

A New York City hospital is moving out more than 200 patients after its backup generator failed when the power was knocked out by a superstorm.


Dozens of ambulances lined up outside NYU Tisch Hospital on Monday night as doctors and nurses began the slow process of taking people out. They started with the sickest and youngest, including 20 babies from neonatal intensive care. Some were on respirators operating on battery power. (AP)
