A woman passed out at Red Hook’s Brooklyn Crab restaurant and later died on Friday.
Police arrived at the popular Reed Street seafood eatery during lunchtime at 12:20 pm after a 911 caller reported 25-year-old Franchesca Lizandro was struggling to breathe, and found her unconscious and unresponsive, according to cops, who said she showed no obvious signs of trauma.
Paramedics then rushed Lizandro, who a Police Department spokeswoman said may have been a restaurant employee, to Methodist Hospital, where doctors declared her dead, authorities said.
The medical examiner has yet to determine a cause of death, according to a separate department spokeswoman, who said Lizandro had a history of medical episodes related to asthma.
A manager at Brooklyn Crab said the restaurant would not comment on the incident.
