Patients moved out of NYC hospital without power

NEW YORK (AP) -- More than 200 patients have been moved out of a New York City hospital that lost power to other medical facilities.

The evacuation of New York University Tisch Hospital began Monday night after a generator failure. It was completed Tuesday morning.

Ambulances came from around the city to help transport the sick. Patients were taken to other hospitals including Mount Sinai, the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer, Lenox and Bellevue.

Doctors and nurses first moved the sickest and youngest patients. Some were on respirators operating on battery power.
