Patrolman Edward Wehe of the Delaware County (Pa.) Courthouse and Park Police Department suffered a fatal heart attack Nov. 5 shortly after clearing the scene of a protest at the Delaware County Prison, the Officer Down Memorial Page reports.
He had been dispatched to the prison to assist in removing the protesters, who had not obtained the proper permits to assemble. He was able to clear the scene after approximately four hours. He went to a local restaurant where he ran into his daughter and, while speaking with her, suddenly collapsed. His daughter immediately initiated CPR until medics arrived. He was transported to Riddle Memorial Hospital where he passed away.
