  1. @citizen- im sorry that ur against flatbush hatzolah but according to google maps methodist hospital is one mile further from this address than maimonides is.

  2. I’m always perturbed about the fact that somone’s tragedy can become public “entertainment” (in the form of colorful photos and videos), albeit a solemn, heartbreaking one.
    a) How does the unfortunate family feel about that?
    b)What do you guys think?

  3. @concerned mom-according to google travel directions Maimonides is only .2 miles closer. Right now there is a difference of 6 minutes in travelling time from the tragedy site, with Methodist being the quicker destination. This should be noted by paramedics.

  4. Richmond Braun, for me it is not entertainment at all, but helps me feel a bigger empathy for what they went through. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Baruch Dayan Emes.

  5. @citizen.according to my husband whose hatzolah member ,taking into account lights and sirens the ambulance prob got to maimonides as quickly as couldve gotten to methodist.and MMC is a level one trauma center and methodist by far not so care prob not comparable either.Again BDE may klal yisroel only know of simchos.

  6. How ruthless to stand and video a home and a life being snuffed out to ashes like its some concert or joyous event.
