What the police/fire response in Luna Park district is about

October 9, 2011 at 1:50 pm | In Luna Park, West Seattle news, WS breaking news | 10 Comments

Several inquiries have come in about the police/fire response in the Luna Park business district. All we know so far is that an elderly man is reported to have suddenly collapsed, and medic crews have been doing CPR. No crime or crash – police told us they are there just to help make sure firefighters have the space they need to work. As you can see in our photo, southbound (uphill) Avalon is blocked at the scene. If we find out anything more later, we’ll add it.

  1. One of our most sweetest, loyal customers had a heart attack in front of the cafe today. Don’t have too many details right now but our thoughts and prayers are with you Ray! Come back soon, there is a whole lot more coffee here for you.

  5. AD – I actually contacted Media Relations this morning in hopes of finding something more out about what “Amused” mentioned, but have not heard back. Going to try the precinct next. – TR

  6. I’m a friend of the family and wanted everyone at Luna Park to know that Ray’s family thanks you for all that you did to help him. Many have come by the hospital to see him and share how much Ray means to them. To the police officer that gave CPR, thank you from the bottom of my heart. We all love Ray and hope that he’ll be back at Luna Park laughing with the staff before long.
