Patrolman Vu Nguyen passed away four days after collapsing during a 1.5-mile timed run that was part of the agency's canine handler eligibility process.

Vu Nguyen died at the Cleveland Clinic, where he had been approved for a liver transplant, according to Cleveland.com.

"He and other candidates were participating in the physical fitness portion of the process in 90+ degree heat when he collapsed during the run on July 2nd, 2018," ODMP said.

Rest in peace Officer Nguyen and prayers to your family and the Cleveland, Ohio Police Department. You never know what is going to happen when doing timed runs in excessive heat. Even young people can push past their limits in that kind of heat. Very san indeed as he is survived by two children also.
