A 67-year old man was rushed to Bellevue Hospital earlier today after an air conditioner came crashing from the 6th floor of a building on 2nd Avenue, falling on top of him. At around 8:30am, Tony Franzese was walking his dog, near 3rd Street, in front of the restaurant, Winebar. The air conditioning unit apparently hit an awning before bouncing off and striking Franzese.  Channel 2 reported he suffered a head wound. A resident, Adrianna Grezak, shot video of the aftermath. An Eater tipster also appeared on the scene for the aftermath, but couldn’t get anyone to talk to him.
