Coler Goldwater Hospital Patient With Severe Memory Loss Reunited With Family Due To Assistance of Friend Lazaro And Channel 41 Reporter

A reader sent in this link to a HHC Today article describing a Coler Goldwater Hospital patient with a traumatic brain injury and severe memory loss caused by a severe beating being reunited with his Brooklyn family. According to HHC Today:

... After spending three months hospitalized at Bellevue, Velez entered Coler-Goldwater Specialty Hospital and Nursing Facility in April 2007, and he's been a resident there ever since. In time he befriended another resident, Nestor Lazaro. They play dominoes regularly. It's not just for recreation - it's part of Velez' treatment. It's a game where memory is vital, and Velez' had soon recovered sufficiently from his brain injury that he was able to beat Lazaro. But the whereabouts of his family remained a mystery.

So Lazaro decided to help his friend. A few weeks ago Lazaro contacted Channel 41 Univision, the Spanish-language television station. Reporter Berenice Gartner went to Coler-Goldwater and interviewed the two friends about Velez' plight. Shortly after the show aired, Velez' got some wonderful news: his relatives had seen the show and were already en route to Coler-Goldwater to see him. They live in Brooklyn....

We should all have friends like Lazaro
