The FDNY held a vigil for Yadira Arroyo, an EMT who was killed five years ago in the Bronx on Wednesday. 
Arroyo’s family, friends and colleagues gathered at FDNY Station 26 in Morissania to remember her five years after her death. 
The 44-year-old was killed after an individual hijacked her ambulance and struck her with the vehicle. 
Now, one of her children continues her legacy as a member of the FDNY. A section of Boston Road is named after her, and a park in Soundview is also name after Arroyo.
