NYC: NYPD probing whether cops sat by as dying teen bled out in Bronx machete attack

The NYPD is looking into allegations that officers failed to immediately help a Bronx teenager who was stabbed to death in a case of mistaken identity, sources said.

Cell phone video taken a block away from St. Barnabas Hospital appears to show good Samaritans desperately trying to help the mortally wounded Lesandro Guzman-Feliz, 15, as he bled out on a doorstep after a machete attack at a bodega on E. 183rd St. near Bathgate Ave. in Belmont on June 20.

Two rubber-gloved NYPD officers can be seen standing off to the side as several people rushed to the mortally wounded teen’s side.

“Yo, what are y’all doin’ about this?” one person can be heard shouting. “In front of St. Barnabas Hospital, man.”

As Lesandro slumped against a building, covered in blood, people crowded around and tried in vain to get him to stay alert.
