DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Officials say a South Florida police officer who collapsed during his department's SWAT team tryouts earlier this year died from heat stroke.
Broward County's medical examiner reported 27-year-old Rogerio Morales' cause of death Wednesday.
The South Florida Sun Sentinel (http://sunsent.nl/rpwPKK ) reports that Morales collapsed Jan. 10 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. He died three days later.
Morales had been with the Davie Police Department for two years.
The medical examiner says tests detected no drugs or medication of any kind in the Morales' body.
Davie police say Morales had undergone a physical before participating in the tryouts.
