Frisco TX police recruit dies after collapsing during final test privateofficer.com

Frisco TX Dec 4 2016 Chris Murray wanted to be a police officer.
He joined the Frisco Police Department as a dispatcher in 2013 and was hired as a police officer cadet. He enrolled in the Denton Police Academy in July. But on Nov. 16, during the final physical test at the academy, he collapsed and was rushed to the hospital.
Murray, who lived in Fort Worth, was diagnosed with rhabdomyolysis, a syndrome that results from the death of muscle fibers and the release of their contents into the bloodstream.
While fighting for his life in the hospital from acute kidney failure, the police academy awarded him his academy certificate during the graduation ceremony on Nov. 18.
Murray died Thursday after being taken off life support. He was 31.
He leaves behind his wife, Hailey, who is pregnant with the couple's second child, and a young daughter.

A YouCaring page established before his death to collect donations described Murray as "an awesome dad, a prankster, a loving husband."
