A reserve Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy died Friday while participating in the mountain biking competition at the 2017 World Police & Fire Games.
Deputy Jacob Castroll has served as a reserve deputy since 2010 in the sheriff’s Malibu-Lost Hills Station.
He was 68, according to the Association For Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs.
NBC 4 reports that he was taken to Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital in “full (cardiac) arrest,” county fire Inspector Joey Marron said.
A father of three with four grandchildren, Deputy Castroll was known by all as a generous man who always looked out for the wellbeing of his loved ones.
