Young Firefighter Diagnosed with Heart Damage Caused by the COVID-19 Vaccine Sues New York City
35-year-old New York City firefighter, O’Brian Pastrana, has filed a lawsuit against the city for extended disability benefits after being injured by the COVID-19 vaccine, mandated for all New York City workers as a condition of employment.
According to Pastrana’s lawsuit, “At the young age of thirty-five, Firefighter Pastrana's lifelong dream of serving the FDNY has been cruelly torn away from him, replaced by a future plagued by permanent disability and financial instability. Despite an immediate severe anaphylactic allergic reaction to the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, documented as a service-connected injury by FDNY doctors, the FDNY required Mr. Pastrana to receive the second dose. After the second dose, Mr. Pastrana went into heart failure and was diagnosed with myocarditis, a rare but known adverse reaction to the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. His heart will never be the same, and the FDNY ultimately deemed him unfit for duty, ending his career as a firefighter in the cruelest of ways.”
The lawsuit further states that “Firefighter Pastrana is permanently disabled from the COVID-19 vaccine,” and the “crux of the matter lies in the categorization of his disability benefits.”
The lawsuit is seeking a court order directing the city to retire Pastrana with Accidental Disability Retirement benefits, with retroactive payments to the date of his retirement, plus interests, costs, and fees.
