Carolyn Frazier was released from New York Presbyterian Queens Hospital Friday at about 10 a.m., despite doctors diagnosing her with the COVID-19 virus, the sources said.
A private ambulance took Frazier back to her home on Parsons Blvd. in Flushing—but she had passed away by the time it arrived.
The woman was pronounced dead at 10:14 a.m., less than half an hour after she’d left the medical center, sources said.
It was not immediately clear why Frazier — who suffered underlying medical issues including high blood pressure and diabetes — was allowed to leave the hospital.
Police said no foul play was suspected in her death.
