NEW YORK — A call to take an emotionally disturbed man to the hospital ended in a life-threatening injury for Officer Eder Loor, 28, who emerged from surgery in late afternoon.
A man with a concealed knife plunged the blade into the left temple of a police officer responding to an emergency call placed by the man's mother on Tuesday morning, the police said.
The violence broke out on Third Avenue, not far from the man's building in East Harlem, after the officer, Eder Loor, 28, and his partner told the man he had to be taken to a hospital, as his mother had requested, the police said.
