A memorial at 236 E. 13th St.

Last Friday night, an EVG reader noted the presence of two fire trucks and two ambulances around midnight on East 13th Street between Second Avenue and Third Avenue. According to the reader, the NYPD "would only say mind your own business." Paramedics were working to revive a young man who "looked dead."

We never heard anything else about this until last night, when another reader said that the stoop at 236 E. 13th St. was covered in flowers and candles. The word among neighbors was that the young man had died.

We don't have any other information at this time.

We live in the building opposite. We saw medics pull up with a stretcher around midnight. They came out with a man on the stretcher who they were desperately trying to revive. They were carrying a portable heart monitor in front of the stretcher. It was dark so it was hard to tell his condition but he was very still and looked grey.

The medics were working like crazy! I have so much respect for these guys.

Very sad to see another young life lost on our street. Condolences to his family.
