VIDEO: Utah Officer Dies of Medical Condition on Duty

Unified, UT, police are mourning the loss of a veteran detective who suffered a medical condition while on duty Thursday, reports KSL TV.

“I am heartbroken and devastated to inform you that early this morning, UPD detective Brian Holdaway suffered a medical condition and has fallen in the line of duty surrounded by friends and colleagues at the sheriff’s office building, who heroically tried to reverse this tragedy,” according to a message Salt Lake County Sheriff Jim Winder posted on the department’s Facebook page.

“Unfortunately, the efforts were unsuccessful and Brian passed away in the company of family and friends at Intermountain Medical Center. Our hearts go out to the Holdaway family and to all of you who knew and worked with Brian,” the sheriff stated.

Holdaway had more than 19 years’ law enforcement experience. He was working in the special victims unit dealing with sex crimes at the time of his death.
