EMT Killed When She’s Crushed Between 2 Ambulances While Responding to Call

A Pennsylvania EMS worker was killed last week when she was crushed between two ambulances.

Two private ambulances were responding to a call in Philadelphia on Saturday, and the first ambulance driver stayed behind the wheel as his colleagues prepared to load the patient. At some point, the driver left the vehicle with the motor still running — but he hopped back in upon realizing the ambulance was inching backward, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Police said the driver accidentally pressed the gas, causing the ambulance to pin EMT Nisha Jaia Renee Dash, 32, between the two ambulances. Dash died at the hospital nearly an hour later.

Philadelphia police are investigating the incident.
