    A Long Island EMT was arrested Wednesday, accused of sexually assaulting a woman who was being rushed to a local hospital.

    Kristopher Kahl, 22, made inappropriate contact with the woman on Nov. 4 in Shirley inside an ambulance, police said. It happened when she was undergoing a physical assessment.

    Kashl was working for the all-volunteer Mastic Ambulance Company at the time.

    He was charged with third-degree sexual abuse Wednesday.

    Calls to the ambulance company were not answered. It wasn't immediately clear whether Kahl had an attorney.
