Cohen said someone broke into his Chevrolet Suburban on Friday and stole several items inside, including communication equipment, oxygen masks, respiratory aids and a stethoscope, all worth thousands of dollars. “They had the audacity to take a trauma bag,” said Cohen. “There was a call that we couldn’t go on because we had no equipment.”

Dahan said, “Now his equipment has to be replaced, and somebody has to sponsor those thousands of dollars to be able to get him back on the street [so he can] be able to save more lives.”

If you know who is responsible for stealing the medical equipment, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward.

Unfortunately, you take a very big risk leaving thousands of dollars of equipment in a vehicle. Drug addicts and thiefs have no conscious.

In as much as the person may be at fault, the incident deserves publicity as they will need help to recompensate for the loss as it's pikuach nefesh for the community. And yes- as the Gemorra says, the mouse is not the theif but the hole in the wall is.

What does English spelling have to do with this issue? You act like a 4 year old looking to start an argument on non issues , criticize my English ,

Just like our parents did in the50's and 60's in Brownsville and other areas of Brooklyn, you just got to leave the neighborhood.

Sell your houses and move, it is not worth the metzias if your LIFE is in DANGER every day.

You obviously don't know the facts! NMB has close to 900 frum families, it isn't some deserted community.We're not sissy little quiters that run everytime the going gets tough. We'll arm ourselves legally with guns, dogs and what everelse it takes to keep our families safe!
