A hero with the New York Police Department spoke with the media about his ‘MacGyver’ move to save a stabbing victim using a potato chip bag and duct tape (video below).

Officer Ronald Kennedy, a former EMT, and his partner were flagged down outside on the street in Harlem, where they found a man who had been stabbed in the chest.

“We requested a bag of potato chips and some tape, ’cause we knew right away that we needed to seal the chest. There was a puncture wound there … we didn’t want the air going in it, collapsing his lung.”

In the video, Kennedy yells, “Go get me a bag of potato chips right now!”

Kennedy dumps the chips and smoothes the bag out before putting it over the wound to tape it in place.

Kennedy told the victim:

“We got you; we got you, don’t touch! Stay with me, stay with me! Keep breathing, bro!”

The stabbing victim owes Officer Kennedy his life. He was transported to the hospital, where he is expected to recover fully
