Upon arrival, a man who was lying on the sidewalk told him that the suspect had “held me in my lung.” Officer Kennedy immediately instructed one man to bring a bag of chips and tape from a nearby bodega and help two others lay on his back.

Officer Kennedy quickly emptied the bag and taped the man’s wound to prevent air from filling his chest cavity.

“It’s the best I could do,” he told the paramedics, as they replaced the potato chip bag with a better seal.

According to the NYPD, the attending physician at Harlem Hospital said Officer Kennedy’s actions saved the victim’s life.
