Citywide womens bikinis sale Mobile Response Corp. was taking Maddalena Santoro from St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center — and up the stairs and into her apartment on West 43rd Street in Manhattan on Dec. 12, 2012 — when workers dropped her, according to papers filed last week in Manhattan State Supreme Court.
“Her suit underwear head hit one of the marble stairs, and she ended up in a coma,” said lawyer Jeffrey Antin, who is suing on behalf of Santoro’s daughter, Vincenza.
Santoro, 90, a mom of three, was in otherwise good health at the time of the accident, according to the lawsuit. She was going to the hospital for wound care, her lawyer said.
On its Web site, Bronx-based Citywide Mobile cites 40-plus years of operation and plush ambulances featuring 400-thread-count linens, flat-screen TVs, surround sound and a “multi-mode lighting system.”
“Regardless if our patients are going crosstown for treatment or even across the country for a scheduled procedure or to consult a specialist, the luxury ambulance experience we’ve created will ‘transport’ you even before you begin your journey,” the site touts.
Santoro was taken home in an ambulette, her lawyer said. Citywide did not return calls. The suit seeks unspecified damages.
