Incredible as it sounds, it seems the NYPD towed a paramedic’s car while the paramedic was on a cardiac call and the vehicle was legally double parked. A supervisor reportedly okayed the towing despite being apprised of the circumstances. This incident is the latest of several apparent breaches of various city protocols, which heretofore had recognized Hatzoloh’s life-saving role.

We call upon Mayor De Blasio to look into this and nip any festering problem in the bud. As we all know, Hatzoloh saves lives and its volunteers’ response time should not be unduly curtailed.
