The three people who died from ‘medical emergencies’ during Wednesday’s MAGA mob attack have been identified, as it’s revealed at least one died from a heart attack suffered ‘in the midst of excitement’ while thousands stormed the Capitol.
Phillips suffered a stroke, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. Greeson’s son wrote on Facebook that he suffered a heart attack.
It’s unclear if all three of them rushed the Capitol building or if they had just been protesting peacefully during the day.
Greeson’s family released a statement saying he was prone to having high blood pressure and suffered a heart attack ‘in the midst of excitement’ while he and thousands of others stormed the Capitol Building.
It’s unclear how Roseanne died. Capitol Police were seen performing CPR on her at 5pm after she collapsed. She was pronounced dead in the hospital a little before 6pm.
Her brother-in-law told DailyMail.com on Thursday that she ‘likely’ was ‘trampled in the rotunda’ but that the family hadn’t yet had the details confirmed.

Phillips was a computer programmer.
According to The Inquirer, he described the day as ‘the first day of the rest of our lives’.
‘They should name this year Zero because something will happen,’ his friends claim he said before the riot got underway.
Phillips founded the website Trumparoo, where Trump supporters can speak to each other, and organized transport for dozens of people to get to DC from Pennsylvania on Wednesday.
It’s unclear at what point in the day he suffered his heart attack, or if he was married or had children.
Greeson’s son announced his death on Facebook.
‘My dad had a heart attack yesterday and sadly passed away. We all loved him so much.

‘He was such a great man we all miss you so much. Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers,’ he said.
Social media photographs show Greeson posing proudly with two AR-15 rifles.
He regularly posted on the website Parler where he encouraged violence against Democrats.
Among recent comments was: ‘Let’s take this f*****g country BACK! Load your guns and take to the s streets. Let’s give them a war… Democrats don’t have guns… we do.. bring your stick, I’m bringing my guns.’
He also tweeted that hydroxychloroquine was a known cure for COVID – which has not been proven.
His family however say he was not violent and was only there to show his support for Trump.
Phillips founded the website Trumparoo. He organized a caravan from Pennsylvania to Washington on January 6
