An 84th Precinct cop was suspended without pay on Tuesday after apparently failing to assist an 11-year-old girl dying from an asthma attack as her panicked mother scrambled to get her to Long Island College Hospital in Cobble Hill.
Investigators confirmed on Wednesday that Police Officer Alfonso Mendez, a five-year veteran of the NYPD, had confronted mom Carmen Ojeda after she had sideswiped another vehicle near Kane and Henry streets in Carroll Gardens while driving the wrong way down a one-way street in a mad dash to get her choking daughter, Briana, to the Hicks Street medical center.
The frantic mother reportedly told the cop that her daughter had had an asthma attack while playing in Carroll Park and that she was trying to get her to the nearest hospital for treatment.
That’s when, according to Ojeda, Mendez claimed that he didn’t know CPR — even though all NYPD officers are trained in the life-saving technique at the police academy. Mendez then tried to give Ojeda a ticket for the car accident as her daughter gasped for air.
Ojeda continued to plead for help and Mendez ultimately escorted her to the hospital, but by then it was too late.

(Video) Cop lets an 11 year old girl die from Asthma
"Nuclear Winter represents many things. It represents dark times in our lives, it represents the state of NY hip hop & how I feel about it, & it represents my blueprint on how I think the music should be done going forward into the future. This is my manifesto to all the people that doubted me & the kryptonite to all selfishness. It's a journey from darkness into light, & from bondage & the huge amounts of weight on our shoulders to breaking free and regaining our freedom. Nuclear Winter we're coming to take shine....." - Willie Maze
