New York EMT Run Over by Own Stolen Ambulance

New York EMT Run Over by Own Stolen Ambulance

One New York EMT was killed and another critically injured after a suspect stole an ambulance and struck them on Thursday night.

During the confrontation, the man "went around the other side of the ambulance and got into the driver's side", Nigro said. The EMTs tried to get the man out of the ambulance but he put it in reverse, injuring one EMT.

Police didn't immediately identify the man who was arrested or the killed EMT.

Arroyo's family said she was a devoted mother who loved her job and provided for her family, and they were devastated.

Jose Gonzalez, 25, who was high on drugs, then ran to the front of the vehicle, getting into the driver's seat and reversing it, officials said.

"They got out to see what has happening", New York City Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro told CNN.

"She was a great mentor; she was a great friend", said Anastasia Ramos, a colleague.

Overnight, her brothers and sisters of the FDNY saluted as Arroyo's body was removed from Jacobi Medical Center, where hours before they rushed to be with her. "They were acting very bravely; they certainly wanted to continue on their way to the call". Police appeared to be on the scene within moments and took the person driving the ambulance into custody. There was no immediate information on an attorney who could comment on his behalf. "Tonight's tragedy in the Bronx is disgusting", he said. Arroyo had been with the Fire Department of NY for 14 years, officials said.

Arroyo's partner, another paramedic for the Fire Department of NY, was taken to hospital with injuries to her neck and shoulder.
