A veteran U.S. Secret Service agent who served on the Presidential Protective Detail died Saturday after a her kayak capsized in a Maryland river. She was 39.
The body of Special Agent Stephanie Hancock was recovered at around 9:30 p.m. Saturday — approximately six hours after she was last seen — in a spot “relatively close” to where her boat first overturned in Spa Creek, Annapolis, a spokesperson with the Department of Natural Resources Police told Fox News.
The article goes on to state the following:
The spokesperson told Fox News on Tuesday that while investigators don’t know what caused Hancock’s kayak to flip, it isn’t a surprise, as the “unstable boats” can capsize simply due to weight shifting to one side.
Hancock was with her boyfriend at the time of the accident and officials say he abandoned his kayak to jump into the river to try and rescue her. He was pulled out of the water by rescue teams some time after.
