A member of President Donald Trump’s secret service detail died Tuesday after suffering a stroke in Scotland.
A U.S. Secret Service special agent “suffered a cerebrovascular accident in Scotland, U.K. where he was travelling in support of Presidential Protection,” an official statement revealed Monday, adding that the agent was receiving “much needed critical care.”
The agent fell ill Sunday during the president’s visit to Turnberry golf resort in Ayrshire. The agent, described by the Secret Service as a “dedicated professional of the highest order,” died Tuesday with his family, the BBC reports, citing U.S. officials. He reportedly served the Secret Service for 19 years.
Secret Service thanked local authorities and medical professionals in Scotland, as well as White House medics, for the “exceptional care” provided. The agent was treated at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow, but the man did not recover, according to The Sun.
