Woman sues EMT over 'wide load' Tweet

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) -- A wheelchair-bound woman has filed a lawsuit against a New York City EMT who tweeted a photo of her with a caption that said "Wide Load."

Teena Gamzon, who suffers from diabetes and other ailments, says fire department EMT Thomas Dluhos secretly photographed her and then splashed it over the Internet.

The Daily News says the suit was filed in Brooklyn state Supreme Court this week.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages for mental anguish, ridicule and emotional distress.

Her lawyer says his client is devastated and confined to her home with shame.

The Daily News says Dluhos hung up the phone when it asked him about the lawsuit. He's been fired from the fire department.

    The NYPD is investigating a major security breach at the Brooklyn Bridge, one of the most highly secured landmarks in New York City. Two white flags — international symbols of surrender — fluttered from poles on the stone supports that hold cables above the bridge connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan. The flags had a faint appearance of the stars and stripes. The American flags that are normally up at the bridge appeared to have been removed.
