VIDEO: Detective Dies Running for Charity

A Bensalem, Pa., police detective who collapsed and died during a 5K race Saturday morning in Philadelphia was running to raise money for his parish, St. Anselm, and its youth program, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Kevin Cornish, 42, a 12-year veteran of the police force, was near Academy and Torrey Roads in Northeast Philadelphia when he was stricken, police said.

Other officers participating in the race performed CPR at the scene before Cornish was taken to Aria-Torresdale Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 11:19 a.m.

Fred Harran, the Bensalem Police Department's public safety director, said Cornish was "a hardworking guy who gave 110 percent" and was a runner who was "health conscious" and had been well-liked in the department of 100 officers.
