Westchester Weekend: More Air Traffic Outrage, Video of Kennedy Hospital Incident

The photos and video of the Air Traffic Controllers at Westchester County Airport asleep at the controls has Sen. Kirstin Gillibrand and County Exec Rob Astorino asking the FAA to investigate. And speaking of surveillance video, that of David Kennedy’s scuffle with nurses at Northern Westchester Hospital in Mt. Kisco was released. You can see Kennedy lift his knee and nurse go flying backwards. Kennedy, a son of Robert Kennedy, was arrested last week in connection with that incident, which took place in January.
