(May 24, 2017) A memorial mural graces a wall by a corner at Morrison & Westchester Avenues. It honors Bronx native Yadira Arroyo — the NYFD EMT killed in the line of duty on March 16, 2017.
The tragic killing of Yadira Arroyo was spread across NYC headlines. She was born, raised and lived in The Bronx, and was the mother of five children. “Yari,” as she was known by those close to her, was a 14-year veteran of the NYFD EMS.
