Mayor Adams: Lives saved in Brooklyn subway attack by quick-thinking straphangers

Adams appeared on CNN from isolation.

Mayor Eric Adams suggested it was “miraculous” there were no immediate deaths reported in the Brooklyn subway attack, saying lives were saved by quick-thinking straphangers who came to the aid of victims.

Speaking to CNN, Adams pointed to witness videos of passengers giving medical care to the injured victims on the train and subway platform after the attack on the Manhattan-bound N train at the 36th Street station in Sunset Park.

As the world around us is imploding, it may be time to store food that is healthy, non-GMO, clean, nutritious, and delicious. No one knows what tomorrow holds.

I believe life was saved based on the actions that we witnessed on some of the amateur video that was released. You saw passengers coming to the aid of each other and I just cannot think New Yorkers enough for how we responded,” Adams said.

At least 16 people were injured, including 10 who were shot.

“You have to really point to the passengers and the transit authority officials,” Adams said.

“I believe life was saved based on the actions that we witnessed on some of the amateur video that was released,” Adams said.

“They responded with a level of just care for their fellow New Yorkers and our first responders at the neighboring hospitals immediately kicked into gear and just provided the necessary care.”


“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do men light a candle and put it under a basket, but on a candlestick. And it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 5:14-16 Modern English Version)
