Police in New York say an EMT has died after she was run over by a stolen ambulance. Yadira Arroyo stopped her ambulance in the Bronx yesterday, after being alerted that a man was riding on the back of it. When she got out to investigate, the man jumped inside and reversed, hitting the 44-year-old EMT. Video posted on Twitter shows the ambulance speeding across an intersection with Arroyo’s body pinned underneath. Her partner suffered a minor injury and the suspect was arrested. The suspect is 25-year-old Jose Gonzalez of the Bronx. He is charged with murder, grand larceny and operating a motor vehicle while impaired by drugs, authorities said.
