NEW YORK - A New York City emergency medical technician accused of failing to help a dying pregnant woman has turned herself in.

The Brooklyn district attorney's office says Melisa Jackson was awaiting arraignment Tuesday.

Jackson is charged with misdemeanor official misconduct. If convicted, she faces up to one year in jail.

Jackson and another EMT have been accused of failing to help 25-year-old Eutisha Revee Rennix on Dec. 9. Rennix became ill while working at a Brooklyn restaurant. The EMTs were on a coffee break and waiting in line. They told workers to call 911, but witnesses say they otherwise didn't intervene.

Defense lawyer Benjamin Heinrich didn't immediately return a message left by The Associated Press.

Jackson remains on administrative duty. The other EMT has since died.
