Police: Men Mistake FDNY For Police, Jump From Window

Firefighters responded to a smoke condition call in Queens early Wednesday and found that four men had jumped from the widow of the building, apparently believing police were raiding the location.

The building at 35-12 Farrington Street in Flushing is known as an illegal gambling location police said.

The four men were found in the alleyway suffering from various injuries, including leg and ankle fractures, and were taken to the hospital. They had jumped out of a window several stories up, authorities said.
