Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: RI   USA   Tue. Aug. 31, 1954
Summary: Trooper Daniel O'Brien drowned while performing rescue operations in East Matunuck during Hurricane Carol. Trooper O'Brien was near Succotash Road, informing residents of the ocean front homes to evacuate when rapidly rising water crippled his patrol car. While helping a citizen a large wave separated the two and washed Trooper O'Brien away.

Trooper O'Brien's abandoned patrol car was found with just the siren sticking out of the water; his body was found lying face down in debris near Post Road in the marsh in East Matunuck.

Trooper O'Brien had served with the agency for three years. He was survived by his parents, three brothers, one sister, and fiance and was posthumously awarded the agency's State Police Service Ribbon.
