LOWER EAST SIDE, Manhattan (WABC) -- An EMT from New York City is being remembered 25 years after her death in the line of duty. Every year, EMT's gather at EMS Station 10 on the Upper East Side to honor Tracy Allen Lee. She was the first EMT in the city, and in the country, to contract the HIV virus while treating a patient. She was treating a bleeding patient in 1989, when she cut herself and contaminated her blood.
