New York Times, July 15, 2009

A criminal investigation has begun into the death of a patient on a waiting room floor at a New York City-run hospital in Brooklyn last year, the Brooklyn district attorney said. The district attorney said that a grand jury had begun an inquiry into the death of Esmin Green, 49, who died early on June 19, 2008, about 24 hours after arriving by ambulance at Kings County Hospital Center's psychiatric emergency room.
