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. Army veteran and had served with the Philadelphia School Police Department for 19 years.

A SCHOOL POLICE officer died yesterday after collapsing in a Northeast Philadelphia school bathroom, officials said.

Sgt. Daryl Giles, 50, was found in a staff bathroom at George Washington High School, on Bustleton Avenue near Gorman Street in Bustleton, about noon after suffering an apparent medical emergency. He was taken to Holy Redeemer hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

"He was a longtime member of the Washington High School family, and he’s really loved by the students and staff, so it’s been a tremendous shock to them," district spokesman Fernando Gallard said.

District sources said Giles had helped break up a fight at Washington shortly before he was discovered. Gallard could not confirm Giles’ involvement, but said that three students were arrested in connection with the fight.

Giles had been an officer with the district for 19 years, Gallard said.
