    Have the attorneys for the poor cab driver lined up yet to file a lawsuit against the FDNY for being so reckless and irresponsible as to double park their rig where the cab was supposed to be driving?

        I'm good with that. As long as he sues the cab driver, not the FDNY.

          I'm with you on that George, but I reckon that FDNY has deeper pockets than the cabbie, so they will probably be the ones that the lawyers will go for.

                  July 22, 2006 -- One of the firefighters injured when a taxi rammed an FDNY truck on the Upper West Side could be released from the hospital within days - but his more seriously injured comrade remained in critical condition yesterday. Manhattan Rescue 1 firefighters John Walters, 37, and Mike Schunk, 41, were both hit by the out-of-control cab at 10:30 p.m. Wednesday on Columbus Ave. near W. 71st St. Schunk, a married father of a 2-year-old girl, broke his right tibia, requiring a rod to be placed in his leg. He could be released from New York Presbyterian Hospital Weill Cornell by early next week, officials said. But Walters' recovery was less predictable. "It's going to be a long time," a fire official said at Bellevue Hospital, where Walters remained in critical condition. Walters, who lives in Port Washington, L.I., with his wife, was pinned between the cab and the double-parked fire truck. His legs were crushed. Asked when Walters could return to his firehouse, the fire official, who asked not to be identified, said he was not certain. "Maybe never," he said. "We don't know."

                      I hope the brothers at R1 have a quick and speedy recovery, and are back on the truck as soon as possible.

                                "July 25, 2006 -- Doctors amputated the right leg of an elite firefighter who was badly hurt when an out-of-control taxi cab pinned him against a firetruck on the Upper West Side last week, sources said yesterday.
                                John Walters, 37, of Rescue 1, had his legs crushed in last Wednesday's tragic accident, which also injured firefighter buddy Mike Schunk.

                                A team of doctors at Bellevue Hospital worked nearly 12 hours to stabilize the more seriously injured Walters.

                                The firefighters, who had stopped to buy dinner, were walking behind their rig, double-parked at 71st Street and Columbus Avenue, at around 10:30 p.m. when they were hit.

                                Cabby Mohammed Ali Kharmis told cops he was cut off by another car and forced into the lane where the firetruck was parked. Kharmis was not charged.

                                Schunk was in stable condition at New York Hospital. "
