NEW YORK — Two FDNY EMTs rescued four people from carbon monoxide poisoning after responding to a medical call

NY Daily News reported that EMTs Zache Cox and Frantzi Honore responded to a home and evacuated four people after they noticed high levels were being registered on the carbon monoxide detectors, according to the FDNY.

A defective boiler was reported as the cause of the gas leak.
