Video posted to Twitter by a bystander shows the ambulance speeding across an intersection with one of its doors open, its lights flashing and the body of Arroyo being dragged underneath the vehicle. The EMT that was struck was taken to Jacobi Hospital in critical condition, but she later died from her injuries.
