Suspect Dies in NYPD Custody After Waiting Four Hours for an Ambulance

Family says police forgot about him


The distraught family of a sick Brooklyn, N.Y., man who died in police custody demanded answers Wednesday about the botched 911 response that left him waiting four hours for an ambulance.

The down-on-his-luck father of two was arrested a day earlier — July 4 — for allegedly attacking a 48-year-old woman with a knife.
