I am reporting an incident I observe myself
while visiting Bellevue Hospital NYC lacted on
First Avenue and 27th Street, NY 10016, with a
Family member on 1/10/2014.
I went there as a translator as my distant
relative did not speak English.
What I observe first hand was unbelievable.
I went to 1st floor Ambulatory care building
for Rehab and physical therapy. Suddenly around
11:15 we heard a really loud scream coming from
numerous people/all corners and followed
immediately after a huge thud. When everyone
started to run and we started to run as to find
out what has just happened, we noticed a person
laying face down on the main lobby of the
Bellevue building. Everyone were screaming and
running around. Suddenly I have noticed that the
person laying face down was a young girl
struggling for her life. Apparently a young
Chinese girl who is a Bellevue hospital patient
who was around 17 years old jumped off the 4th
floor of Bellevue Clinic in an effort to take
her life. Bellevue is partly responsible because
their railing is no longer than 4 feet long and
anyone can climb up and commit suicide.
I am not sure whether the girl made it, but
most likely not. Because her head was split in
half, pelvis was broken and both legs were
broken into pieces. Her father was with her. We
heard the providers were talking about that
rapid response team of the hospital was not even
there for at least 10 minutes to save the girls
life. It is utterly unacceptable while such an
unfortunate event happens at the Hospital. I
guess the hospital was not prepared for this
kind of shock even though they try to pride
themselves about being one of the best, flagship
of NYC HHC system and affiliates with NYU
medical center. Also I heard that the clinic
stuff were complaining that such a tragic event
happen yet they are not closing the clinic and
that they have cut off all incoming phone calls
from outside the hospital to the clinic. Also
they advised all employees not to talk to the
I was shocked at you guys the so called
journalists; none of you guys were there to
interview witnesses. No news media was there. I
came home and watched news and I did not see any
news about it.
I was so shocked.
That ¡s why I am sending you this e-mail.
There were at least more than 200 people who
observed what happened. Many people took
pictures and videos.
You guys must ask hospital official what
happened. You can interview the guys who sells
coffee on the streets and food vendors in front
of the hospital what happened on 1-10-14. You
can also interview the porters who cleans
Bellevue floors or any employees.
You guys must tell NYCers this news.
So many garbage news are put forth in the news
and newspaper everyday but such a big news being
You guys must interview and tell the truth,
how this hospital failed to provide security for
