SANIBEL, Fla. (AP) – Authorities say a Florida police officer died after collapsing during a training exercise.

The Sanibel Police Department posted on Facebook that 63-year-old Anthony Neri died Monday after being rushed to a local hospital. Officials didn’t say what kind of training Neri had been doing, but the post says he died of natural causes. 

Neri joined the department in 2012 as a police aide and became a police officer in 2015. Before that, Neri had a 30-year career as a Revenue Officer with the U.S. Department of Treasury. He had also worked for three years as a police officer in New Jersey.
