EMT dragged, killed by own ambulance

NEW YORK - An emergency medical technician was killed and another was injured after they were run over with their own ambulance in New York.
Authorities said Yadira Arroyo and her EMT partner were responding to a call around 7 p.m. in the Bronx when a passing motorist told them someone was on their back bumper.
They pulled over to investigate and a man jumped into the ambulance. The two EMTs tried to pull him out but the man reversed the ambulance and dragged Arroyo under the vehicle, killing her.
Video posted on Twitter by a bystander shows the ambulance speeding across an intersection with the EMT's body pinned under it.  More
