New York – Incineration

A homeless addict set ablaze during a horrifying, caught-on-camera attack inside a Lower East Side NYCHA building has died, authorities said Saturday.

The victim, whom officials have yet to identify and is known only as John Doe, died at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center burn unit Thursday after clinging to life for 13 days.

The man, who is believed to be in his 30s and regularly slept in hallways and stairwells of the Samuel Gompers Houses building on Pitt St., was set on fire as he dozed on a third-floor landing about 4:50 p.m. Nov. 5th 2021.
