Collecting Agent Acts to Help REM Suffering from Chest Pain

IB ImageCollecting Agent Vincent Evbodaghe was credited with swifly coming the to aid of his partner who looked to be suffering from a heart attack. On November 17th at the 36th Street Station in Sunset Park, an NYCT Revenue Equipment Maintainer began having chest pains and trouble breathing. We are withholding his name because of medical confidentiality. The REM's partner, Collecting Agent Evbodaghe, quickly calmed the REM, loosened his collar, and sat him down on the station bench, then called 911. He stayed with him until NYPD and EMS arrived. The REM was taken to Maimonides Medical Center and was eventually discharged to home. Brother Evbodaghe was nominated for NYCT's Hero of the Week.
