New York City's Bellevue hospital became the second hospital to be forced to evacuate due to loss of power brought on by "Superstorm" Sandy.
– Bellevue Hospital will evacuate its remaining 700 patients, a process that could take two days, a source familiar with the evacuation plan told CNN. Many critically ill patients had already been evacuated.
NYU Langone Medical Center was the first - the hospital evacuated about 260 patients, carrying some of them down 15 flights of stairs to ambulances ready to take them to the safety of other hospitals.
