NYPD Delivers Generator to Dialysis Patient Amid Power Outage

The New York Police Department delivered a generator to a double amputee on dialysis on August 5, after Tropical Storm Isaias left thousands of New Yorkers without electricity.

Footage of the delivery shows officers pushing the generator up a driveway.

The video’s caption read: “This generator is going to a double amputee who is on dialysis and needed power because the storm knocked it out. Thank you New Yorkers for reaching out and telling us about our neighbor.”
