A New York City police sergeant collapsed during a narcotics operation Friday morning and could not be revived by medical personnel, the agency announced.

Sgt. Patrick Divers, 51, suffered a heart attack at about 10:30 a.m. Sgt. Divers was inside a police vehicle during a buy-bust operation near Myrtle and Nostrand avenues in northern Brooklyn.

Divers began to experience chest pain and convulse. He was transported to the Woodhull Medical Center, where he died.

A 25-year NYPD veteran, Divers had made more than 1,000 arrests and earned 35 commendations in his career. He was a member of the Brooklyn North Narcotics team operating in the 79th Precinct. He leaves behind a wife, daughter, and son.

You were a great friend and an even better cop, always dedicated to the job and your fellow Officers. You were truly one of a kind. You will be sorely missed. Rest In Peace Brother Doogie.

What is wrong with these people, a man has died and you say nasty things and involve his family. You are cowards and won't state your name. I have a feeling that his fellow brothers in law enforcement would like to visit with you and may God forgive you, I can't.
