Daughter of Monsey stabbing victim starts GoFundMe to help pay for medical bills

Posted: Updated:

Nicky Kohen, the daughter of Monsey stabbing victim Josef Neumann, sat down with News 12 for the first time since the brutal attack on her father.

Neumann is currently clinging to life at Westchester Medical Center.

He was the most critically injured out of the six victims who were attacked during Hanukkah celebrations last month in Monsey.

The 72-year-old remains unconscious with a broken skull and shattered arm.

"It's unbelievable, he does not deserve this," she says.

She says medical costs are rising quickly, so she created a GoFundMe page for her father.

The money will go towards medical bills, with more than $13,000 being raised in just days.

Kohen has a goal of raising $250,000 for her father's current medical costs.
