Patients moved out of NYC hospital without power
NEW YORK (AP) -- Nearly 300 patients have been moved out of a New York City hospital that lost power to other medical facilities.
The evacuation of New York University Tisch Hospital began Monday night after a generator failure. It was completed Tuesday morning.
Ambulances came from around the city to help transport the sick. Patients were taken to other hospitals including Mount Sinai and the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer.
Doctors and nurses first moved the sickest and youngest patients. Some were on respirators operating on battery power.
