FDNY Responders Treat Patients after NYC Train Derailment

Issue 7 and Volume 39.

A New York City fire department EMT assists a woman who was evacuated from a subway train after it derailed in the Queens borough of New York City in early May. The express F train was bound for Manhattan and Brooklyn when it derailed about 1,200 feet south of the 65th Street station, according to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. Dozens of EMTs, paramedics and firefighters converged on Broadway and 60th Street, calming and triaging passengers as they left the tunnel through the sidewalk opening. Several were treated on stretchers and the walking wounded were transported to area hospitals.
