DAVIE, Fla. — A South Florida police officer who collapsed during his department’s SWAT team tryouts earlier this week has died.

Davie police say 27-year-old Rogerio Morales died Thursday at a Weston hospital. Officials believe Morales might have had a heart attack, but an autopsy has been ordered to determine an exact cause of death.

Morales – who was described as being very physically fit – collapsed Monday while completing a physical agility test. He was given first-aid by a Davie paramedic at the scene before he was taken to the hospital. His death is being considered an in-the-line-of-duty death.

Morales had been with the department for two years. Morales worked the midnight shift for the road patrol division of the Police Department.

Most physical agility tests require the person to run fast, stop quickly, change direction and complete an obstacle course in less than 20 seconds.

 

He is survived by his wife, Alejandra.
