    Whiskey.....Tango.....Foxtrot.......this is just heartbreakingly tragic..
    The one bit of silver lining on this tragedy is that the suspect was subdued by an off-duty MTA officer on the scene and is currently in NYPD custody.

    Horrible tragedy. Too bad New York doesn't have the death penalty.

    This is absolutely horrific. My heart goes out to EMT Arroyo's partner and family.

    FYI - you can make a donation to a fund for her children via the FDNY Foundation.

    Note: I believe they are a 501c(3).

    Very sad to hear.

    Remember nothing on your ambulance is worth risking your life.
