A man lying on his stomach on the sidewalk, telling Officer Kennedy that the suspect had “me in my lung” upon his arrival, told Officer Kennedy. Officer Kennedy directed one man to go to a nearby bodega and get tape and chips, while two others helped him to lay the suspect on his back.

Officer Kennedy quickly empty the bag and taped the man’s wound. This was to stop his chest cavity filling up with air.
He said, “It’s all I could do with what was available,” to paramedics while they replaced the potato chip bag with one with a better seal.
