A horrific accident occurred which left a Secret Service dog dead. The dog fell of the roof of a six story building in New Orleans while executing a security check.

The Belgian Malinois was part of the security team which was protecting Vice President Joe Biden. The unfortunate accident took place around 6pm on January 26th. The vet was unable to save the animal.

The Secret Service stated that an accident such as this one has not happened before and a Secret Service spokesman told CNN the death was a ‘tragic accident.’

We believe that this unnamed Bomb Detection dog is a hero, having died while protecting the Vice President and America.
