I was a relatively new officer (3 yrs) working 13 car with Ed Amarose that day. We observed Jimmy collapse. Despite Ed’s quick actions and those of other officers in the operations room and Short ride by Rescue to St Agnes, Jimmy didn’t make it...Remember that day as if it was yesterday...Miss Jimmy and the rest of 2squad 1st Dist.
