Who are the four people who died in the DC protest at the Capitol?

Three people who died of medical emergencies during Wednesday’s protest at the Capitol were from Pennsylvania, Alabama and Georgia, officials announced.

They include Kevin Greeson, 55, of Athens, Ala., according to AL.com.

The last post to Greeson’s Twitter account, on July 28, cited a discredited claim by President Trump that hydroxychloroquine is a cure for COVID-19.

“Trump 2020!” he tweeted one month prior.

Greeson, who had a history of high blood pressure, suffered a fatal heart attack during the protest. He was “a wonderful father and husband who loved life,” his family told the News Courier.

“Kevin was an advocate of President Trump and attended the event on January 6, 2021, to show his support,” the statement said.null

“He was excited to be there to experience this event,” the statement added.

“Our family is devastated.” 

A second medical emergency fatality was Benjamin Phillips, 50, of Ringtown, Pa., the Morning Call confirmed.
