A Secret Service agent has died after her kayak capsized in a Maryland river.

Special Agent Stephanie Hancock, who had served on the Presidential Protective Detail, was kayaking with her boyfriend on the Severn River on Saturday, WJZ-TV reports.

After the boat overturned, her boyfriend tried to rescue her but to no avail. Rescue teams pulled him out of the water.

Hancock’s body was recovered about six hours after she slipped into the water and disappeared.

“On Saturday, June 29, 2019, the Secret Service lost one of our own in a tragic kayaking accident in Maryland. Special Agent Stephanie Hancock had been with the U.S. Secret Service since 2007, last serving on the Presidential Protective Detail,” USSS said in a statement. “Our condolences, as well as our thoughts and prayers, are with the family of Special Agent Hancock.”

It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the kayak to capsize, but authorities said Hancock was not wearing a life jacket.
