NEW YORK – Two FDNY emergency medical technicians suffered separate medical emergencies responding to a crash this afternoon, according to WABC-TV.
It happened just after 1 p.m. on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway in Woodside, Queens.
The station reports 63-year-old Liam Glinane suffered a stroke and veered off the road. EMS Lt. Raymond Wang, 47, was riding in a second ambulance and stopped to help.
Wang then became unconscious and suffered an aortic aneurysm, the station reported.
City officials called it a bizarre coincidence.
Both men were listed in critical condition at the hospital, according to WABC.
