Look who was in NYU hospital and evacuated with the rest of the patients!
"Kenneth Langone, the billionaire chairman of New York
University Hospital, said he was a patient at the NYU Langone Medical Center when it lost power duringHurricane Sandy
and had to be evacuated. "
“The backup generators failed, it’s that simple, but the story here is the magnificence of the effort of all of our people and what they did,” Langone, 77, today said in a telephone interview from his Fifth Avenue apartment. “Just think of the effort to bring down 200 and some patients and they did it and they did it all night long.”
“I saw it all happen, and I watched these wonderful nurses and nurse’s aides, I saw humans at their best, at their very best, and you say thank god there’s people on earth like this,”he said. “This impromptu command center that was set up, I sat there and I watched it and I marveled.”
