Vigil Held For EMT Killed


Family and friends turned out in the Bronx on Sunday night to remember Yadira Arroyo, an EMT who was killed last week.

Arroyo was run over by an ambulance when a 25-year-old suspect tried to steal the vehicle.  A wake has been planned for Thursday and Friday, while a funeral is set for Saturday morning.  Arroyo was a 14-year veteran who leaves behind five children. The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which honors fallen first responders, is putting $100,000 in a trust fun for Arroyo's five children. 

Jose Gonzalez has been charged in connection with Arroyo’s death.  He’s facing charges of murder, manslaughter and robbery.
