Guzman-Feliz was stabbed by five men with machetes on Wednesday outside a corner store
A viral post on Facebook suggests two nurses walked by the brutal murder of 15-year-old Lesandro ‘Junior’ Guzman-Feliz on Wednesday and did nothing to intervene.
A screenshot from one of the videos showing Guzman-Feliz being dragged out of a corner grocery store before being stabbed in the throat twice with machetes. In the image, you can see two people walking by the grizzly scene in blue scrubs.
The screenshot was uploaded to Facebook by Amy Fernandez. The screenshot, it reads, “2 nurses passed by❗❗ Calls were never made to 911 even after they saw the situation❗❗ & they never came back to check up on him❗❗ I think they should lose their licenses❗❗” The image has been shared over 30,000 times and has over 3,000 comments.
The couple in scrubs can be seen walking by in scrubs in the video below.
So did two nurses walk by a 15-year-old being murdered and do nothing? The actual answer may never be known. In reality, nurses are not the only people who wear scrubs. The two walking down the sidewalk could have been anything from dentists to lab techs and were not necessarily medical nurses obligated to help Guzman-Feliz.
Regardless of their profession, the fact remains, they walked by a 15-year-old getting murdered and appear to have done nothing. The two did not need to try and fight the five attackers but merely calling 911 from a safe distance, which they may have done.
Along with the two walking in scrubs, people can be seen both inside and outside the store while the attack occurs. At least one witness videotaped the attack from above. At least one person was seen running from the scene, and several people are seen inside the store. On one of the videos, multiple people can be heard screaming, and numerous cars are seen driving by the attack.
The viral screenshot should be taken with a grain of salt. The problem is there is no way of knowing for sure if the two people are nurses or if they did or did not call the cops once out of frame. From watching the video, it does seem a handful of people decided to mind their own business which inadvertently played a role in taking Guzman-Feliz’s life.
Just days ago 15-year-old Lesandro ‘Junior’ Guzman-Feliz was brutally stabbed outside a corner store in New York by five men—at least two of which were armed with machetes—believed to be gang affiliated.
Video from security cameras and witnesses showed Guzman-Feliz being dragged out of the Cruz and Chiky Grocery on the corner of E. 183rd St. and Bathgate Ave. at around 11:40 p.m.on Wednesday. Once outside of the store, two of the men stabbed the teenager in the throat with machetes.
Guzman-Feliz is seen running from the scene of the attack two blocks to St Barnabas Hospital where he collapsed outside of the emergency room. Friends of Guzman-Feliz said he was requesting water before he died.
