A cop used a MacGuyver to save a stabbing victim, and it worked. New York City Police Department officer Ronald Kennedy arrived at the scene in Harlem on July 7 and used a unique method – duct tape and an empty bag of chips – to treat the wound.
In a body cam video shared by the NYPD, Kennedy is heard asking a bystander to go get him a bag of chips. The man ran into a nearby bodega and came back with chips, which the employee emptied and then asked for tape from the store. Kennedy asked two people to help put the victim on his back and began taping the chip bag to his chest to cover the stab wound and slow the bleeding until an ambulance arrived.
In the video, Kennedy is heard telling the victim to relax and assure him, “we’ve got you.” When paramedics arrived, he told them, “I tried. It’s the best I can do with what I have. They took the victim to Harlem hospital, where the attending physician said Kennedy’s quick thinking saved his life.
