A 19-year-old Harker Heights man died Thursday after Heights police found him unresponsive in the 800 block of West Central Texas Expressway.
Heights emergency services responded to the scene at 9:37 a.m. in reference to a call of an unconscious male who was not breathing.
Upon arrival, first responders said CPR was in progress, but the man remained unresponsive, unconscious and not breathing.
Heights police spokesman Lt. Steve Miller said a family member picked the man up at another location after his morning jog. While in the car, the man began to pass out, the family member said.
“He realized he was passing out, they pulled over, and they tried to revive him,” Miller said.
After all life-saving measures were used, the man remained unresponsive and was taken to Seton Medical Center in Heights.
The man was pronounced dead by Bell County Justice of the Peace Claudia Brown. An autopsy has been ordered.
Although a family member was on scene during the incident, Heights police are withholding the man’s identity pending notification of all next of kin.
