An NYPD sergeant and seven officers were hospitalized early Friday morning after being sickened by fumes while responding to a call in Rego Park, Queens, police said. Police were called to an apartment building on Saunders Street, near 63rd Drive

"Six people are in the hospital and she's rather scared," an interpreter for Morales told CBS New York. "All the police were knocking very hard on the doors, telling people they had to evacuate; had to get out; couldn't be in another minute there."

"Really bad, really bad," added Miriam Herrera, whose parents live in the building. "Everybody was scared."

After the 911 call, it took first responders 60 seconds to arrive — not a minute too soon.

"They entered the building and found people unconscious in the hallway, started CPR and got occupants out of the building," said Perth Amboy Police Chief Roman McKeon.

Displaced residents were put up in a hotel.

In total, 12 apartments were affected by the incident. Authorities are working to determine if there were working carbon monoxide detectors in every unit.
