EMT dead after being struck by Stolen ambulance in Bronx

An FDNY emergency medical technician and mother of five was killed and her partner was injured in the Bronx Thursday when a man stole their ambulance and ran over one of the first responders, officials said.

EMT Yadira Arroyo, 44, a 14-year veteran of the FDNY, died at Jacobi Medical Center, where her partner, EMT Monique Williams, 31, was treated for minor injuries, sources said.

“They were acting very bravely, they certainly wanted to continue on their way to the call,” FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro said after meeting with Williams and Arroyo’s families at Jacobi.
