NEW YORK — A sobbing father said it was definitely an NYPD cop who fatally delayed his 11-year-old asthmatic daughter's desperate dash to a hospital - but police cast doubt on the grieving family's claims.
Michael Ojeda said yesterday his daughter, Briana, died after a uniformed officer in a police cruiser tried to box in a car driven by his wife, Carmen, as she tried to rush to Long Island College Hospital.
