Ellensburg officer, RIP
Ellensburg police officer dies of hantavirus
ELLENSBURG, Wash. -- A rare disease linked to mouse droppings has been blamed for the death of an Ellensburg police officer.
The Yakima County coroner report that 34-year-old Sgt. Nelson Ng died Friday of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome. He had been transferred to Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital after being admitted to Kittitas Valley Hospital.
Police say Ng was previously in excellent health.
Hantavirus is typically contracted from airborne droplets of mouse urine or particles of dried-up droppings. It can fill the lungs with fluid and cause death in less than 48 hours.
Details on the circumstances in which Ng contracted the ailment have not been released.
The death is being investigated by the Kittitas County Public Health Department.
They now believe it's possible he contacted the virus at the county shooting range.

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
