The New York Post has published surveillance video (above) showing three NYPD officers from Queens carrying 91-year-old Ethel Davis down a smoke filled hallway during a January fire in the women’s apartment building. As we first told you last month, Marcia Davis, the woman’s daughter, says she begged the officers to let her mother shelter in place. Marcia Davis and her lawyer claim the officers didn’t take Ethel Davis out of the building to safety, but left her on the floor in the 12th floor hallway. Ethel Davis was eventually rescued by FDNY, but she died the next day due to smoke inhalation.
The surveillance footage is part of a legal notice of claim set to be filed by the family of great-great-grandma Ethel Davis, who died of smoke inhalation a day after the Jan. 12 blaze at her apartment building in Rockaway Beach.
The footage shows the feeble, bewildered woman, in a nightgown and socks, being hauled off by NYPD Sgt. Timothy Brovakos, who is aided by two other cops, at around 11:30 a.m.
But Brovakos is quickly overcome by smoke, and Davis gets abandoned on the floor outside a hallway exit door as his two comrades help him to a lower floor.
