Couple receives medical attention at Queens County Courthouse

By Mark Hallum

Drama erupted at the Queens County Courthouse at 125-01 Queens Blvd. Friday morning, when a woman slipped on the main floor of the courhouse and fell. Her husband subsequently experienced an anxiety attack, said the Queens District Attorney, which led to two ambulances arriving at the scene to care for the couple.

The Fire Department responded to an initial call at 10:14 a.m. which said a patient was having difficulty breathing. About 10 minutes later a second ambulance was called for his wife who had fallen. The man was transported to Jamaica Hospital and the woman refused treatment, FDNY said.
