During Visit with Victims, Governor Hochul Hails New Yorkers’ Resilience

 By: Boropark24 staff

 Governor Hochul—who has been the most senior public official responding to the subway tragedy today, since Mayor Adams is quarantined with Covid—visited with victims of the shooting this afternoon at Maimonides Medical Center in Boro Park, after which she held a press conference.

 She noted the tragedies, but also the hope and the fortitude of New Yorkers in the face of tragedy.

 She recounted meeting with a Chinese mother at the bedside of her son, a 16-year old who suffered injuries to his arm. “I thank G-d for the talent of the doctors here who were able to restore life to his thumb. The governor noted how her son was the only person this woman had in the world.

 Hochul decried the terrible scourge of gun violence in our streets and in our subways, and vowed to combat it in every possible way.

 During the Q&A portion of the press conference, the governor was asked by Boropark24 whether there would be increased security during Pesach, in light of these events—to which she responded “yes.”

 Finally, she hailed the tenacity of the MTA workers and fellow straphangers who rallied to aid their fellow during the attack.

 “New Yorkers can never be kept down,” she said.
