Heartbreaking news has come in today of a former NYPD sergeant who passed away after forcibly discharging himself from hospital.

He was reportedly dissatisfied with the level of care he was receiving and was found near the intersection of East 77th Street and Park Avenue at 6am Monday morning.

 

On top of the usual influx of patients, healthcare workers are now dealing with an incredibly serious medical pandemic, and are working around the clock to save as many lives as possible.

In a last-ditch effort to slow down the spread of the deadly virus, countries and major cities all over the world have gone into full lockdown.

Over a million people have now been infected with the virus and a further 70,320 people have tragically died.

While medical researchers work tirelessly to find a vaccine, regular people have been urged to avoid any form of social interaction and contact as best they can.

Person-to-person contact is thought to be the main method of transmission for the virus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – Through sneezing and coughing, primarily.

And it is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

The rising death doll is absolutely horrific.

A former NYPD Sergeant has dropped dead near the intersection of East 77th Street and Park Avenue at 6am Monday morning after forcibly discharging himself from hospital.

And it seems the officer had had enough.

But he wasn’t there for long before walking out once more.

And he spent bis last 8 of them as a sergeant before retiring in 2014.

Although an autopsy should deliver those results soon.

“Please keep Sgt. Chang and his loved ones in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time and continue to be vigilant in all that you do as we battle this global pandemic,” the Sergeants Benevolent Association stated.

And with the current behavior of certain individuals, it doesn’t look set to be getting any better …
