Teen Rushed To Hospital After She Fainted But Was Sexually Abused By Emergency Room Worker
According to The NY Daily News
A Brooklyn teen who was rushed to the hospital after she fainted on a subway train was sexually abused by an emergency room worker who was supposed to be taking her blood pressure, the Daily News has learned.
The 18-year-old victim was in and out of consciousness Thursday around 7 p.m. when the sicko worker at Brooklyn Hospital Center allegedly grabbed her hand and repeatedly put it on his crotch.
“I remember a nurse or someone trying to put a blood-pressure cuff around my arm,” the victim, whose name The News is withholding, said recalling the moment the sicko sexually assaulted her.
“That’s when I started to wake up,” she said, tears rolling down her cheeks.
“The only thing that was going through my mind was, ‘Open your eyes so you can see his face.’ ”
Her mother was on the other side of the curtain when the sickening assault took place, the victim said Saturday.
The victim’s nightmare began when she boarded an A train at the Jay St.-MetroTech station station around noon to meet some friends at Chelsea Piers.
She started to feel dizzy and queasy on the train. “The next thing I know, I blacked out,” she said.
She recalls people asking her questions and going through her bag in search of her identification. She even remembers EMTs lifting her onto a stretcher.
“I couldn’t open my eyes,” she said. “I couldn’t speak. I just had in-and-out hearing.”
The next thing she heard was the sound of her mother’s voice in the emergency room, followed by the sound of a curtain closing.
The hospital worker asked her mother to step to the other side of the curtain so he could check her blood pressure. The worker left before she could open her eyes. She told her mom everything.
“She grabbed my hand and told me what he did,” the victim’s 37-year-old mother said. “I couldn’t process it.” “I was beyond shocked,” she added.
“The last place you would believe that would happen is in the hospital.”
The victim’s father rushed to the hospital and called police.
But the brazen suspect returned and claimed he had to run an EKG on the victim. Her dad told him to get lost.
By the time police arrived, the worker was nowhere to be found, the family said. “She’s traumatized,” the victim’s 55-year-old father said. “I just want some justice for my daughter.”
Cops say they are looking to question a 55-year-old suspect.
A Brooklyn Hospital spokeswoman declined to comment. The woman was admitted to the hospital and released Friday.
“I feel bad that he would go so low, that he is in such a dark place that he has to go so low,” the girl said of the suspect.
“If anything, I feel bad for him.”
