EMS Workers On Modified Duty Following Staten Island Man's Death

(New York, NY) -- Four EMS workers are being taken off 911 duty as investigators probe the alleged choke hold death of a New York man. They're accused of failing to administer proper aid to Eric Garner who weighed 350 pounds and was asthmatic and diabetic. The 43-year-old married father of six went into cardiac arrest Thursday when police tried to arrest him for selling "loosies" or untaxed cigarettes. The NYPD has stripped Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo of his badge and gun after the eight-year veteran was apparently captured on cellphone video placing Garner in an illegal choke hold.
