The National Guard/Army (WARNING: possibly NSFW) ran over and most likely killed a man on Canal St. (Chinatown, New York City) betw. Centre St. and Lafayette St at around 1:15 EST today (November 6th). A convoy of 10 or so trucks were barreling down Canal St. I saw them run one red light, and I think it's pretty safe to say they ran the previous red light as well. The man who was killed looked to be in his 40s or 50s, and judging by the Chinese language newspapers he was carrying, he was probably Asian. His body was halfway under one of the truck tires and it looked like the back of his head got smashed into the asphalt after he was hit. Blood everywhere. EMS arrived in about 7 minutes, tore off his shirt to try to give him CPR. They put his neck in a neck brace, so I'm assuming his neck was broken. After around five minutes they stopped giving him CPR and his body was going into convulsions. It was pretty clear the NYPD was trying to clear all of the witnesses away. They made everyone leave the sidewalk (we weren't blocking foot traffic, so it was actually legal to stand there). They said they were going to spray down the street and we would get wet if we stood there. This never actually happened, no one got wet.

You think she at least roll the truck back of the poor guy, instead of standing there holding her bloody ears no doubt saying to herself, "this is not happening this is not happening"
The guy was probably moaning in pain.
