This morning a park patron was found in a locked Queens park bathroom after having spent the night NYC Park Advocates has learned.
Park workers discovered a 40-year-old man "shivering" inside the locked comfort station in Det. Keith Williams Park near 173rd Street and 106th Avenue.
Startled park employees found the man trembling from early hypothermia when they opened the bathroom door.
According to sources he refused medical attention and left the park.
Five and a half hour after requesting information the Parks Department's press office confirmed the incident and said they were "looking further into this matter."
