NY1 VIDEO: As NY1 News revisits its 20-year history, the station looks back at reporter Debbie Feyerick's March 23, 1998 coverage of rapper Sean Combs' testimony in a trial that stemmed from a deadly stampede at an event he promoted at City College.
NY1 FOLLOW-UP: In 1999, a New York Court of Claims judge found that Sean Combs and Heavy D were 50 percent responsible for the deaths at CCNY, and that CCNY itself bore the rest of the responsibility for turning security at the event over to Combs' team.
