WASHINGTON, Pa. — A deputy died after suffering a fatal heart attack while on duty Wednesday.

Washington County Sheriff’s Office Cpl. Chad Beattie, 45, was responding to a call that involved a foot pursuit with a suspect who was wanted on outstanding warrants in multiple counties. After returning to his patrol vehicle, Beattie began feeling ill and collapsed, CBS News reported.

Beattie, who began working with the sheriff’s office in 2002, was transported to a hospital, where he died.

“During his distinguished career, he earned the rank of corporal and served on the Fugitive Unit for most of his career. Cpl. Beattie was a proud father and was an outstanding asset to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office,” the department said.
