Isiah Thomas Wasn’t Breathing When Police Arrived


Isiah Thomas was not breathing when police found the former Knicks coach and president sprawled on the kitchen floor of his Purchase home last week, according to an incident report obtained Thursday by the Daily News.

Harrison police administered oxygen to Thomas until an ambulance crew arrived. He was taken to White Plains Hospital Center for further medical attention.

According to the report, Harrison police officers responding to a late-night 911 call arrived at Thomas’ $4 million home shortly after midnight on Oct.24 and found a victim unconscious in the kitchen. Thomas’ name and other personal information were redacted from the report, which The News obtained after filing a Freedom of Information Act request.
