Woman Set for Deportation Attempts Suicide at JFK

A woman distraught over being forced back to her native country attempted to kill herself inside Kennedy Airport but was saved by two Port Authority cops, officials said Saturday.

The woman was being held at Customs in terminal eight waiting for a flight to Chile when she took 30 sleeping pills and some muscle relaxants about 2 p.m. Thursday, law enforcement sources said.

“She really didn’t want to go back to Chile,” a law enforcement source said. “She was intent on killing herself.”

The woman made her suicide bid the day before Trump’s Friday order to suspend immigration from Muslim countries with terrorism concerns, block refugees for 120 days and suspend Syrian refugees from entering the U.S. indefinitely.

The woman fell unconscious and was having difficulty breathing when Port Authority Police Officers John Devins and Dominick Renda were called to the scene and administered Narcan, a nasal spray version of Naloxone used by law enforcement agencies across the country to help overdose patients.
