An elderly woman died after being pushed to the ground in a Brooklyn hospital for not social distancing, police sources said Sunday.
The 86-year-old victim, whose name was not released, was pushed by the patient in NYC Health + Hospitals/Woodhull just after 2 p.m. — falling backward and hitting her head on the ground, according to police.
She died about three hours later around 5 p.m. while hospital workers were waiting to give her a CT scan — but workers didn’t call cops in the 79th Precinct until 10:30 p.m. because the medical center was flooded with patients, according to sources.
The female attacker, whose name was not known, was given a summons for disorderly conduct, sources said.
“She got too close,” the woman allegedly said to justify the shove, sources said.
