A Philadelphia school police officer died Monday after helping break up a large and complaining about chest pains.

Sgt. Daryl Giles, 50, was a 19-year veteran of the district, and long-time officer at the school.

The School District of Philadelphia told WTXF TV that the school staff found Giles unresponsive from an unknown medical emergency in the bathroom on Monday afternoon.

"He was a longtime member of the George Washington High School family, and he's really loved by the students and staff, so it's been a tremendous shock to them," district spokesman Fernando Gallard told Philly.com.


Police say three students were arrested in the fight. They are facing disorderly conduct charges.

Hats off to this Officer. Being an actual Full-Time School Police Officer is something I could never do. Was once assigned to a High School for 3 months. They never wanted me back because I treated them they way they treated me. Like crap!!!
This is a bad deal. To many Law enforcement Officers are dying from heart attacks & health related issues. You all have to quit eating junk food & work out. Luckily I was able to retire at a some what young age & get things in check.

@TheRookie you make the judgement that he ate junk food and didn't work out...he could've just had a preexisting heart condition that went undetected. I've see two guys die in the gym working out, that looked fit as a fiddle. Rest in peace Officer Giles.
