A 25-year-old rookie Daytona Beach police officer died Monday after collapsing during physical training Friday, Daytona Beach Police Chief Craig Capri said.

Officer Thomas Coulter and 23 other new police officers were doing what the chief described as “very light" physical training last Monday when Coulter collapsed. The trainees had just started a session of jogging and doing pushups around 8 a.m. when Coulter collapsed.

There was no indication of previous health issues and Coulter passed every test to become a police officer, Capri told ClickOrlando.

Coulter had recently married his high school sweetheart, Capri said.

Prayers to Officer Coulter's family and the Daytona Beach Police Department. Sometimes these things just happen and there are no outward signs of problems.
