DC Police Chief Robert Contee announced this evening that three people died from medical emergencies during today’s insurrection at the Capitol.
Contee did not specify if these people were involved in any way with the overtaking of the Capitol building.
“One adult female and two adult males appear to have suffered from separate medical emergencies, which resulted in their deaths. Any loss of life in the District is tragic and our thoughts are with anyone impacted by their loss,” he said.
DC Fire and Emergency Medical services transported people to area hospitals with injuries ranging from cardiac arrest to multiple fractures after falling from scaffolding on the West front of the Capitol building. However, city officials did not say whether any of these people are the ones now deceased.
