"I miss her. Of course, you know, I love her", said Arroyo's son Edgar, 22.

Video posted on Twitter by a bystander shows the ambulance speeding across an intersection with one of its doors open, its lights flashing and the body of one of the EMTs being dragged beneath the vehicle. His father says his son struggles with mental health issues, and thinks the city failed him - he says his son had little choice but to turn to violence.

The EMTs stopped the ambulance and the driver got out to approach the suspect, New York City Police Department Deputy Chief Jason Wilcox said.

Gonzalez attempted to flee the scene, but an MTA police officer and other bystanders held him down, police said.

When Arroyo pulled over, she and her partner exited the vehicle. The female worker later died, while the male worker remained hospitalized Thursday night. The EMT that was struck was taken to Jacobi Hospital in critical condition, but she later died from her injuries.
