New Rochelle Paramedics Responding to Cardiac Arrest Overwhelmed by Flying Maggots and Stench from Cat Waste

ShareThis

NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Paramedics from Transcare, responding to a report of a 70-year old woman in cardiac arrest along with the New Rochelle Fire Department, were forced to retreat due to strong odors from cat waste and flying maggots which engulfed them as they entered the house. The two paramedics remained in the house for several minutes but exited after they determined the woman had expired. Initial reports were that 18 cats were living in the house but this has not yet been confirmed.

The paramedics described an overwhelming stench from cat urine and cat feces, an odor that neighbors have been complaining about for years. The odor could clearly be detected 50 feet outside the house.

On September 17, 2007 Gary Iarocci was arrested for drunk driving by the New Rochelle Police Department. He was convicted of Operating a Motor Vehicle While Intoxicated First Offense on November 9, 2007. He was held overnight after his arrest, paid a $500 fine and given a Conditional Discharge. Iarocci has since passed away.

Iarocci was fired from his position as a Motor Equipment Operator with the New Rochelle Board of Education. Ironically, his replacement, James Vincent Bonanno had been convicted on an identical drunk driving charge two years earlier.
