Audio recording of police transmissions obtained by TLS shows Poconos Police did not allow Bike 4 Chai’s medical team to tend to a cardiac arrest patient – one of their own bikers.
During the ride, a biker – Chaim Moshe ben Leah – suffered a medical episode, and went into cardiac arrest.
Police arrived a short time later and called for EMS.
Police reportedly then called Bike 4 Chai to notify them about the incident, but at the same time shut down access to the scene.
Multiple sources told TLS that Police did not allow anyone from Bike 4 Chai’s medical team – including a doctor – to treat the patient. One paramedic who showed up was also allegedly threatened with arrest.
To further verify the incident, TLS obtained audio recording of radio transmissions during the call.
“If they show up, kick ’em outta here,” an officer can be heard saying on the radio.” Listen to the recording below.
CPR was performed on scene before the patient was transported to the hospital.
TLS reached out to Poconos Police for comment on the incident, but as of publishing received no response.
Please continue to be Mispallel for Chaim Moshe ben Leah who remains in serious condition.
