New York - A Japanese woman who was grazed by a stray police bullet and hospitalized while visiting New York City and worried she’d miss a flight has gotten a police escort to the airport.

The drama began unfolding Thursday morning, when New York Police Department narcotics officers raided a third-floor Brooklyn apartment. Police say a drug suspect kicked a shield used by an officer who had his pistol drawn, causing the pistol to shoot.

A bullet went through the floor and into an apartment below, where the Japanese woman was sleeping. It caused a minor wound on her left arm.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly visited the woman in a hospital and learned her main concern was she’d miss a flight for Barbados later Thursday. He arranged for a police escort to Kennedy airport.

The drug suspect was arrested.

It shows the fairness of the NYPD. Also, the noble character of the Comissioner. Another (LA, Chicago?!) PD, would probably shrug off the incident as part of a day's work.
