BROOKLYN - An inmate at a Brooklyn holding cell claims she watched a woman die while in police custody over the weekend.
Authorities say Kyam Livingston died at 70th Precinct headquarters Sunday morning. She was awaiting arraignment after being arrested for allegedly fighting with her grandmother the day before.
Police say the 37-year-old Livingston was taken to Kings County Hospital following her arrest because she was intoxicated. She was later released and sent to central booking, where a witness says she was complaining about her health for seven hours.
The witness adds that officers did not respond quickly enough to the woman's concerns and that once ambulances arrived, the woman was dead.
The cause of death is still under investigation.
