(IBEXNews) - Unbelievably, 2 men beat and pepper-sprayed a pair of FDNY emergency medical technicians after refusing to taxi them to another hospital, authorities said Friday.
The wild melee unfolded outside Mount Sinai West Hospital on Tenth Ave. and W. 59th St. around 1 a.m. Wednesday, cops said.
An ambulance had taken the 2 men — Andre Langston, 27, and Avanti Rhodes, 24, of the Bronx (of course) — to the Midtown hospital where they got into an argument with the head nurse, sources said.
The two men then ran back to the ambulance and demanded the crew take them to a different hospital, sources with knowledge of the case said.
