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.
