Sergeant Daryl Giles suffered a fatal heart attack shortly after breaking up a large fight at George Washington High School, on Bustleton Avenue, in Northeast Philadelphia.

He struggled with two students as he broke up the fight. Following the fight he informed other officers that he was suffering chest pains, and a short time later he was found unresponsive in a bathroom. The school nurse initiated CPR until medics could transport him to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Three students were charged with disorderly conduct as a result of the fight.

Sergeant Giles was a U.S. Air Force veteran and had served with the Philadelphia School Police Department for 19 years.

It seems like yesterday you were telling me happy birthday and asking am I getting chunky again. When my little brother passed you were there to keep me strong but now he has taken you too, I struggled with who would keep me strong now. No Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year with you this year. This will be the first year that I no longer have you. Not only were you my dad but you were my protector. THEY DON'T MAKE THEM LIKE YOU ANYMORE!

I'm so glad God made it possible for everyone to see how great you are. I LOVE YOU...AND YOUR LEGACY WILL LIVE ON THROUGH ME...
