Emergency workers put in modified duty over death of man in police custody story image

NEW YORK (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Four emergency workers involved in a medical response for a man who died in police custody have been placed on "modified duty."

As authorities in New York City investigate the death of Eric Garner, two EMTs and two paramedics will not be allowed to respond to 911 calls.

The 43-year-old died Thursday after a police officer placed him in an apparent chokehold during an arrest for selling untaxed cigarettes.

The fire department says the emergency workers are employed by the hospital where Garner was pronounced dead.

Two police officers involved in the arrest have been assigned to desk duty pending the outcome of an investigation.

One of those officers was stripped of his gun and badge.
