NEW YORK — The response to Tuesday’s parking garage collapse in Lower Manhattan was bolstered by new technology. It included a robotic dog and drones that could get inside the dangerous collapse zone.
The city just last week announced it was adding robotic dogs for the police department for things like hostage situations. After the mayor got criticism for spending that money then, he couldn’t help but say “I told you so!” on Wednesday.
“Just one week ago, I was being criticized by all the folks in the bleachers, saying, ‘Well, why are you getting that dog?’ Now you see why I got the dog — to save lives,” Adams said.
