They rush him to Bellevue Hospital. Most traffic feeding onto the main route leading to the hospital was blocked off at least 5-10 min in advance of the emergency vehicles.
I was on the northbound M15 select bus when I began noticing cop cars at various intersections along the route beginning at Delancey St. As the bus headed up First Avenue, maybe half a dozen cop cars sped in front of the bus. Eventually the bus reached E 24th St where I began recording. I didn't know what was going on until later.
The full footage is actually 5 and half minutes long. but in the interest of time, I cut away most of the dull moments. I counted at least 36 among the initial escort in the video, then there's a 1 and a half min lull (edited out) before 7 more vehicles pass by. Then another 1 min lull before two black suburbans roll by with maybe mayor bloomberg, or police commissioner ray kelly in it flanked by black cars with a hatzolah ambulance trailing it (not on video).
Shot handheld using a canon elph. I didn't have either of my two high-rez low-light cameras with me, otherwise the video quality would have been much higher, and with better detail incl. ids of cars, etc.
