Sergeant Michael Foster died of a stab wound he received two days earlier after responding to a dispute in a bar.

He and another sergeant responded to the dispute between a bartender and a group of sailors at a bar at 279 Water Street, in Manhattan. When they arrived, one of the sailors assaulted the other sergeant. When Sergeant Foster came to his aid, he was stabbed by one of the other sailors. He was removed to the hospital, where he succumbed to his wounds two days later.
