More from the Secret Service:
WASHINGTON, D.C.) On July 15, 2018, a U.S. Secret Service Special Agent suffered a severe
cerebrovascular accident in Scotland where he was traveling in support of Presidential Protection. It is with great sadness and regret to report that the agent, a 19-year Secret Service veteran and dedicated professional of the highest order, passed early this morning on July 17, 2018, in Scotland. At the time of his passing, he was surrounded by members of his immediate family and his extended Secret Service family.
The agent’s name is intentionally being withheld to respect the family’s privacy and allow time to complete personnel and family notifications. We ask for your patience as we work to support the agent’s family and co-workers following this loss of a dedicated career public servant.
Finally, the Secret Service thanks the medical personnel in Scotland, in addition to the members of the White House Medical Unit and Police Scotland who provided exceptional care and support for a member of our family.
According to a GoFundMe that’s been set up for the family, the agent was 42-years-old with two young kids:

But Alex Pierson of Global News radio in Toronto, whose Twitter bio says she’s an “Award Winning Journalist,” thought this tragic news would be a good time for an anti-Trump tweet:
Let me guess– Trump made him taste the food before throwing the FBI and security advisors under the bus.. https://t.co/4dy2NZNope
