It is with sad regret I pass along that EMT Yardira Arroyo was killed in the line of duty last night. Arroyo, 44, had served for the department for 14 years. She is the 8th member of FDNY EMS to be killed in the line of duty
God bless her service and sacrifice. For those that didn't hear, Arroyo was killed when her bus was stolen and she was intentionally run over by the suspect. The suspect was drunk and riding on the back of her bus, then apparently attacked a random citizen. Arroyo stopped and tried to help the citizen when the suspect stole the bus and intentionally struck her.
