Employee found dead in Bronx hospital

An employee at NYC Health + Hospitals/North Central Bronx Hospital was found dead in the hospital Tuesday.

The 48-year-old man was found deceased at about 10:00 a.m. Police sources told New York Daily News that the employee may have died of a heart attack, and no foul play is suspected.

A colleague reportedly discovered the body in a remote area of the hospital, and it appeared that the man had partly disrobed and may have been watching pornography on a computer when he died, according to the report.  

NYC Health + Hospitals told Becker's Hospital Review on Thursday that the system is cooperating with local authorities regarding the worker's death. "Our thoughts are with the family and staff during this difficult time," the system said.
