Officer Ronald Kennedy arrived in Harlem, New York, on July 7 to see a bleeding man stabbed in the chest. The policeman responded quickly.
“Quick, bring me a bag of chips now!” He called to the onlookers.
The camera footage on the policeman’s body shows the bag of chips immediately ripped open, emptied the chips, and placed it on the stabbed man’s chest and taped it.
The temporary rescue of the wound, which prevented the development of pneumothorax, ie the penetration of air into the chest, was replaced by a rescuer called by a professional bandage. According to paramedics from the Harlem Hospital, the bag bandage saved the man’s life.
