    Footage of man, possibly dead being carried down steps. New York in the USA.

  • Description

    Man dies on church steps in New York, United States of America.

    Bizarre short film. People coming out of church and apparently a man suddenly collapses; possibly from a heart attack; other men catch him and carry him down the steps as children stare. Cut to shot from same camera position: some men coming down steps. First a Navy officer & elderly man; the officer uses a cane; while the older man holds his other arm; the Navy man holds his hat in his hand. Oddities; death; corpse; illness.
