NYC man falls on broken glass, bleeds to death

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Police say a man bled to death outside a Brooklyn restaurant after he fell on a broken bottle during an argument.

The incident happened at 4 a.m. Saturday in the borough's Flatbush section.

Witnesses tell police two men were involved in a dispute inside the eatery, and then got into an altercation outside.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found 1 of the men bleeding from a cut on his arm.

The victim was in his 20s. He was taken to a hospital, but doctors couldn't save him.

News photographs of the scene showed investigators retrieving a large knife from the street, but police said they believed it was the glass, and not the blade, that delivered the fatal wound.

The slain man's identity wasn't immediately released.

    Several beaches on the New Jersey and New York coastlines are open to visitors but closed to swimming because of high surf and dangerous rip currents. The National Weather Service has issued a High Surf Advisory and Rip Current Statement for the area beaches because of the effects of Hurricane Cristobal, which is expected to track south and east of the Jersey shore through Thursday.

    Brooklyn's final pitch to hold the 2016 Democratic national convention was centered on New York City's robust mass transit system -- and a pledge to learn "from the mistakes" from the last time the city hosted a presidential convention. The Republicans gathered in New York in 2004 to re-nominate President George W. Bush, choosing to meet in deep-blue Manhattan less than three years after the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

    I'm tracking this area of low pressure off the coast, but even if it does organize into a depression or storm it will likely just be a rain-maker for SE Texas.
