Pedestrian suffers heart attack on Green Street

February 7, 2014

Bangs Ambulance and Ithaca Fire Department crews responded when a man collapsed on Green Street at lunchtime on Friday, officials say. The elderly man was crossing the street with his wife when he collapsed due to a heart attack, and pulled her down with him.

An Ithaca Fire Department spokesman says a nurse who happened to be nearby stopped and began administering CPR. IFD and Bangs crews were able to take over patient care at the scene and transport the man to Cayuga Medical Center. Our understanding is that the man did not survive.
