EMTs robbed at gunpoint in Brooklyn while responding to fake 911 call

A pair of Emergency Medical Technicians working for a Brooklyn hospital were robbed at gunpoint as they responded to a bogus 911 call at a NYCHA apartment building, officials and sources said Tuesday.

The EMTs, a 28-year-old woman and a 46-year-old man, were taking the elevator in a Sackman St. building — part of the Seth Low Houses — near Belmont Ave. in Brownsville after responding to a call about someone having difficulty breathing about 11 p.m. Monday when a man in the elevator with them hit the emergency stop between the 10th and 11th floor, officials said.
